Re: I want to keep my guns.

The term “Republic” has historically been used to distinguish an elected government from a monarchy, and was very appropriate at the time of or country’s founding, especially since the original Constitution left the issue of eligibility to vote to the States; most only allowed white, male, property owners to vote. It was a Republic, but not a Democracy. However, with the transition to universal adult suffrage with the 15th, 19th, and 26th Ammendments, our Republic is also now a Democracy.

The same people that would have you believe we live in a "democracy" are the same ones who believe an AR-15 is an "assault rifle".

I certainly want to keep my guns. Our country is under attack by a foreign enemy, and our democracy is under threat.
