Our individual liberty—and liberties—depend on a number of things: sovereignty of us citizens over our government; understanding that our rights and duties are inherent in us as gifts from our Creator and not grants from that government; the tools with which to enforce those rights and duties—free speech and religion, keeping and bearing arms, among others. And an ability to trust one another.
Laura Ingraham addressed this peripherally.
The Second Amendment be damned. You see liberals don’t really trust regular people. They prefer a system where a small set of elites in Washington make decisions for everybody else. Including on issues of self-defense.
Law abiding gun owners are invariably seen as suspicious. Their motives untrustworthy.
This is yet another example of the Left’s contempt for ordinary Americans.
This is yet another example of their projection: the people of the Left don’t trust themselves. Or each other.
This lack of trust is as much a threat to our nation’s commitment to individual liberty, personal responsibility, self-reliance as is the Left’s overt attacks on our right to keep and bear Arms and the rest of our Bill of Rights.
