Truth Week--Day One: Mr Bramson, I will post a question from your civics class.
What is democracy?
At a public hearing in New Rochelle on July 23, 2013, a preponderance of attendees, all of whom were residents of the City of New Rochelle, heard you say that democracy "is not about counting heads." So, then, what is it about? Is it your opinion that elected representatives are wiser than their electorate, thereby entitling them to substitute their judgment for the huddled masses?
Do you think elected representatives can ignore statutory requirements and constitutional mandates in their substitution of their opinion over that of the mandates of the Constitution?
Please specifically explain your justification for extensive gun control in light of the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution & legal precedent from the United States Supreme Court guaranteeing the rights of citizens to bear arms.
