Many people are protesting limited gun control. Why? If somebody wants to create mayhem, they will, as evidenced most recently in Boston. What we need to do is throw away the Constitution and draft a new one that the public — not our so-called leaders — votes on. The original Constitution was drawn up to protect the public from over-governance, but it’s been bastardized and laden with amendments. Times change.
We also need to do away with the present political-pay structure. Let current politicians be grandfathered in now, but eventually let the public vote on their salaries and retirement benefits instead of letting them dictate these terms to us.
