Pundits are pouting; that is, those who are not still in a state of shock. But the Republic still stands.
And, please do not ever refer to the United States as a Democracy, as HRC does.
A democracy is mob rule. If the mob consists of three coyotes and a sheep discussing what's for dinner, . . . .
A representative republic, on the other hand, usually makes it difficult to pass legislation, good or bad. This molasses effect tends to protect the rights of the individual. Our republic also includes a Constitution and Bill of Rights (BOR), of which the BOR is designed to protect the individual's rights and liberties. Speaking of the Bill of Rights - -
Now, its time to further restore the Second Amendment. The Congress needs to pass a national reciprocity bill such as H. R. 402.
President-elect Trump told me at the 2015 NRA convention that he would "totally look into it."
He looked into it and here is what he says at his page on Second Amendment Rights
NATIONAL RIGHT TO CARRY. The right of self-defense doesn’t stop at the end of your driveway. That’s why I have a concealed carry permit and why tens of millions of Americans do too. That permit should be valid in all 50 states. A driver’s license works in every state, so it’s common sense that a concealed carry permit should work in every state. If we can do that for driving – which is a privilege, not a right – then surely we can do that for concealed carry, which is a right, not a privilege.Congress' Republican majority needs to remember "who brung them to the dance" for a change, pass this long-overdue legislation in January and send it to President Trump!
