Democracy? Republic? Please elabor...zzzzzzzzzz. Well, since you obviously do not understand the difference, I'll spell it out for you. Democracy: Majority rules. Plain & simple. Look it up in the dictionary. Which means if 51% of the population votes that they don't like you, or me, and want to make sure there will be no more of us in the future, they can mandate we get fixed. Republic: Bound by a set of laws. We call ours the Constitution. Kapeesh? There is a difference, albeit maybe not much, between watching violence and participating in it by killing all the bad guys in a video game. And btw: they all get up right after you kill them and keep on fighting. Right? Now you & I know that if you kill someone, they don't get back up. But does a four or five year old really know the difference? Anyone who feels life is better, for whatever reason, in some other country, is free to relocate. There is something wrong with (our) society. There must be reasons why we keep having mass murders like this. But until we get to the place where we are willing to discuss all the issues, rather than looking for a quick fix, these psycho's will continue too find ways to wreak havoc. No one is born a psycho. So how do they get that way? And this latest one didn't go down to Sportsman's Warehouse and buy his guns. He murdered the owner, and stole them. As far as I know, murder and theft have been against the law since Moses came down off the mountain. The law did not seem to have any effect on this guy.
