"Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide."

- John Adams, April 15, 1814 letter to John Taylor.

We are NOT a 'democracy';

"[D]emocracy will soon degenerate into an anarchy, such an anarchy
that every man will do what is right in his own eyes and no man's
life or property or reputation or liberty will be secure, and every
one of these will soon mould itself into a system of subordination
of all the moral virtues and intellectual abilities, all the powers
of wealth, beauty, wit and science, to the wanton pleasures, the
capricious will, and the execrable cruelty of one or a very few."

- John Adams,

An Essay on Man's Lust for Power, 29 August 1763

(Reference: Original Intent, Barton (338); original The Papers of
John Adams, Taylor, ed., vol. 1 - 83).

Which is why we were intended to be a Constitutional Republic.

TM2000-25: 118-120 DEMOCRACY: A government of the masses. Authority derived through mass meeting or any other form of direct expression. Results in mobocracy. Attitude toward property is communistic- negating property rights. Attitude toward law is that the will of the majority shall regulate, whether it be based upon deliberation or governed by passion, prejudice, and impulse, without restraint or regard to consequences. Results in demagogism, license, agitation, discontent, anarchy.

TM 2000-25: 120-121 REPUBLIC: Authority is derived throughout the election by the people of public officials best fitted to represent them. Attitude toward property is respect for laws and individual rights, and a sensible economic procedure. Attitude toward law is the administration of justice in accord with fixed principles and established evidence, with a strict regard to consequences. A greater number of citizens and extent of territory may be brought within its compass. Avoids the dangerous extreme of either tyranny or mobocracy. Results in statesmanship, liberty, reason, justice, contentment, and progress.

Yes. Our children have been taught that the US is a Democracy. I remember being taught that as far back as the late 70s.
That was not by mistake. If the youth are trained to be ignorant, its much easier for a tyrannical takeover.
Our founders established a Republic for a reason. Socialist liberals venture further away from it, then say the problems we have need more socialist liberal venture.

But, DO NOT 'rest easy,' for just when you think you're 'safe,' you'll be faced with an even greater test of your skills, and will.

You'll be prepared, but they will not, and THEY WILL be jealous, envious, and sure to test you just to see how far you'll go to defend what's yours.

Word to the wise: TELL NO ONE what you have, where you have it stored, or any other thing. Remember: Loose lips sink ships.

As far as anyone else should know, you have NOT A THING stored away, i.e., you're just as 'unprepared' as they. The VERY LAST THING you're going to want is the word on the street that YOU have what EVERYBODY ELSE needs/wants.

Gosh, saying you were in fear of your life and proving it when you have a history of violence including assault on police officer and were fired for having a bad temper and the BOY you shot was on the sidewalk in front of his house is going to be tough on the PEDOPHILE's defense team.
Especially when you can't take the stand because you got caught lying to the very court where you will be on trial.
Are you pretending he didn't lie, Shug?

Yup -
"Remember, democracy
"Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose: For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld under the Amendment or state analogues. The Court’s opinion should not be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.[United States v.] Miller’s holding that the sorts of weapons protected are those “in common use at the time” finds support in the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of dangerous and unusual weapons."
