In the last two weeks, I have heard two things regarding the state of our union that disturb me more than anything.

The first was a statement made on the morning news early last week, after the massacre in Buffalo, but before the one in Uvalde. A reporter, not a commentator, but a reporter, matter-of-factly reported on the gun policy debate that, “the Senate is an outlier on this issue.” Think about how ridiculous that statement is, and then factor in the casual nature in which it was said on national television.

This week, after the Uvalde massacre, but before the one in Tulsa, I had heard the American government described as being “minoritarian” in nature. In other words, the minority is ruling right now–at least in the context of gun policy.
