The republic needs a makeover

To the Editor: I was intrigued by the title of Vincent Scala’s column “Forget democracy, the nation is not even a republic” (The Chief, June 17) After reading it, I was in awe.

To the Editor: Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), a member of the committee on the Anti-Gun Violence Bill, said that in spite of the sudden reluctance of GOP members to agree to the terms of the bill, he believes the bill will pass.
