You're presuming that it is because they lack sense that they are pushing for and intend to pass these laws.
It has nothing to do with that at all. These people want the population to be disarmed
, not because they wish to improve our lots in life or anything so lofty, but because they fear an armed population
When the government fears the population, there is liberty. When the population fears the government, there is tyranny. The people in question are attempting to ensure that the latter is the case, not the former.
These people want a subjugated population
. They want to make the population subservient to the government. It's as simple as that.
I assure you, this is not
an accident, and it is not
stupidity. It is malevolence
