Quote by Alan Keyes
Why do they want to disarm the people? Well, they want to disarm the people on the assumption that we are not responsible enough to be trusted with the means to defend ourselves--regardless of the truth that our Founders thought that this is an essential prerequisite and precondition of liberty.
This quote suggests that the reason for wanting to disarm the people is rooted in the belief that individuals cannot be trusted to responsibly use weapons for self-defense. It implies that those who advocate for disarmament disregard the belief of the Founding Fathers, who considered the ability to defend oneself as fundamental for preserving liberty. The quote highlights the tension between the view that gun ownership is a constitutional right and the perception that it could potentially lead to irresponsible use or societal harm.
