So while I think there is no problem with requiring a photo ID, it should also be, in an ideal world, reasonably easy to get to a place that can issue those IDs, to make them more accessible to the population they need to serve.
It's not difficult. They're just lazy. God forbid they can't get a ride or pay for public transportation to the nearest D/BMV office. Use a little creativity. They're even open on the weekends, too!
I haven't gotten my DC identification card. It would be a pain in the ass for me to go to the DMV, but it would not be difficult, at all. I haven't gone because I'm lazy.
