    but don't we have a republic instead of a democracy so that the majority CAN'T rule over the minority?
    Elections are the point...maybe the only point....where the majority wins just because its the majority.

    Besides, "minority rule" leaves us wondering why we would let a few rural citizens rule over the millions, no quote marks, of urban and suburban people.  I know the prevailing attitude in the GOP is that cities are alien constructs dropped in the middle of Real America, but I disagree.  The cities and suburbs don't just have the people.  They are the actual heartland of America.

    That's not even "gun control". It's more like "massacre control".
