Rare assault weapon crime = Democrat/liberal outrage, new laws must be passed, etc...
But when it happens with voting fraud?
Passing new legislation that is designed to stop a rare event is only acceptable to liberal hypocrites when their cause is being supported.
Otherwise, it's overkill, swatting a gnat with a hammer.

Source of real voter fraud is ignored
On the other hand, in-person voter fraud is exceedingly rare. And that makes perfect sense when you think about it.
You see, voting illegally at a precinct carries a much higher risk and offers little reward because it's one vote at a time. Whereas hijacking absentee ballots offers extra layers of protection, and can conceivably involve hundreds of votes at a time.
For instance, a candidate's broker can simply buy ballots from voters, as was the case in Arkansas. Or absentee ballots can be routed to incorrect addresses. Or brokers can collect ballots door to door and discard those that do not vote a particular way. Or a broker can offer to help someone fill out their ballot and guide it in a certain direction.
The point is -- the rush to pass laws that purport to stop rare events are favored by the liberal hypocrites as long as the "rare event" suits their political leaning.
Read it slowly, twice if necessary, or get someone else to explain it to you.
If you don't have the testicular fortitude to admit that your analogy sucks then that's on you.
