No. A state university ID can only show that you have a state university ID
in the name of John K Clark. In Tennessee, and probably everywhere else
that has them, carry permits require proof of identification (birth
certificate or passport), background check, and fingerprinting. When I went
to a state university they didn't do anything like that before giving an ID.

That's an alternative fact. Frankly, I don't understand the objection to
requiring a state-issued ID to vote.
