The U.S. is a Constitutional Representative Republic. Democracy is the precise thing that the founders were so concerned about.
Their writings abundantly show they knew the faults of ‘democracy’, and wanted (as we still do) a system where the rights of a minority can not so easily be trampled by a tyranny of the majority. That is because we know that some people don’t like the rights that some others exercise.
The author if this tripe is the exact type that the founders warned us about.
There’s no question: We can have sane gun laws.
We just have to fix our democracy first.
