I’m certain that you cannot use logic, reason, history, or common sense to dissuade those who fear to live without a gun. To protect the majority, who have no such need, we the people need to elect a consensual, cooperating, compromising, non-opposing Congress that has 80-90% approval ratings, not the 10-20% we now have with the bitterly opposing political parties that represent the extremist minorities and ignore the majority of we the people and continually defer taking action. This not how our constitutional democratic republic is supposed to function. It isn’t functioning at all! We the people — not uncaring, self-serving, incompetent, career politicians — should be the major voice moderated by intelligent, logical, clear and compassionate thinking from proven competent leaders.
