Jeez, the whole country and even other parts of the world have been beating the gun debate to death for months now. Our government (the U.S.) is
pushing for gun reform, or some kind of control to either reduce the kinds of weapons citizens should be allowed to own, or to outlaw them altogether.
If it's such an important topic then we should be able to VOTE on it! Did our own government forget that it's SUPPOSED TO BE majority rules?
And, while I'm at it: Who told the government that it could go drone-killing people around the world without our vote on it? Maybe the majority will
approve, then again maybe they won't, but aren't REALLY important issues like this supposed to be OUR decision?
Just my opinion, but somehow the government has to get the message that it is supposed to represent the wishes of the people - and nothing more. If we
are attacked, then sure, the government can react swiftly to defend against any invading force, but there's no hurry anymore. The government can wait
until we vote on whether or not we want to police the world, violate boundaries of other countries without their permission, and kill people.
Let me be clear here, I'm not saying it's right or wrong to take a stand one way or the other on these issues. I'm just saying that we are supposed
to vote on them.
