Illinois requires photo ID to buy drain cleaner

However, Illinois is a state in the same category as Maryland that only requires a photo ID to vote in a limited number of specific cases.  No ID?  You can vote, you just can’t unclog your drains!

Thanks to Jim for posting this interesting read from Obamaland:

CHICAGO (CBS) – A new state law requires those who buy drain cleaners and other caustic substances to provide photo identification and sign a log.

It’s getting a rough reception from customers and merchants alike although perhaps none more than a cashier at Schroeder’s True Value Hardware in Lombard.

“They’re not very happy about it at all,” said Don Schroeder, one of the store’s owners. “One of the customers actually threatened the (cashier) and threatened to throw the acid on her.”

I guess a frustrated progressive state like Illinois, with a recent US Supreme Court ruling in favor of gun-owners, figures if they can’t go after your guns they can still go after your weaponized drain cleaner.

As we gear up to get more Voter ID laws in place someone should pull together the enormous (and sometimes ludicrous) list of things one must produce a photo ID for—maybe someone already has.  If you know of such a list send it my way.
