The "voice of the people", regardless of what it says, does not supersede the protections provided by the Constitution. Be careful what you wish for; the passion of the mob may turn against you next, if you abandon the principles of our republic. We are not a democracy, thank God. The Congress can debate as they choose (and citizens and their advocacy groups can all have a voice in that debate), and to the extent that they waste their time in fruitless or misguided debate, or finally vote against our interests, we'll vote them out and reverse their folly. There's a republic for you.

Over the course of the next week, I'll be spending my time at Gunsite Academy in Paulden, Arizona learning the ins and outs of the AR-15 and pistol handling. For those of you who don't know what Gunsite Academy is, let me give you an introduction.
