Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer has come out with a book titled Making Our Democracy Work. The title itself is misleading in that America is not a democracy, despite what statists and socialists would have us believe. It is in fact, a constitutional republic.
In an interview with Christopher Wallace on Fox News Sunday, Breyer states that the Second Amendment was meant to place a restriction on the right to keep and bear arms.
In the interview, Breyer goes on to talk about how the court should take a pragmatic view. His judicial philosophy is to view the Constitution as a core set of values that must be applied according to the moment.
Of course, values are flexible and can be changed. One might value a seemingly rare item, and once that item has outlived its usefulness, it's value would decline.
A judge, a politician, the average citizen that adheres to a set of core principles is much more interesting and is the answer to restoring the republic. Allowing democracy to take hold is a recipe for disaster.
