You sometimes see RFRA pop up in the most unexpected of places. Here's the latest example.
An Amish man living in Northumberland County whose religious beliefs prevent him from being photographed is challenging the photo identification requirement to purchase a firearm.
Andrew Hertzler claims in a suit filed Friday in U.S. Middle District Court that the requirement is a violation of his constitutional right to possess a firearm and of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act...
Hertzler states he is an active member of the Amish faith and community in Lancaster County with a sincerely held religious belief that prohibits photographs being taken of him.
The suit states Hertzler on June 2 was not allowed to purchase a gun for self-defense purposes at a Pennsylvania licensed firearms dealer with his state-issued non-photo ID.
