Aristotle also discussed the right to keep and bear arms. He said, "There must be arms. for the members of a community have need of them, and in their own hands, too, in order to maintain authority against disobedient subjects and against external assailants" (from Aristotle's Politics). Mr. Trump falls on the correct side of this issue. In this regard Mr. Trump does appear to know Aristotle, and that may be a very good thing for Americans.
