A LITTLE GUN HISTORY In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. ------------------------------In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. ------------------------------Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated. ------------------------------China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. ------------------------------Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. ------------------------------Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. ------------------------------Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. -----------------------------Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.. ------------------------------You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens. Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late! The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson. With guns, we are 'citizens'. Without them, we are 'subjects'. During WW II the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED! If you value your freedom, please spread this anti gun -control message to all of your friends. The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental. SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN! SWITZERLAND'S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE. SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!

    Gun Control Works!!
    Ask anybody, like Hitler, Mao Tse Tung, Stalin and the rest of the people who've proven time and time again that Gun Control is one step towards mass-murder.
    I wonder how many people Obama will 'remove' once he gets his gun control pushed through??

    One of the first things Adolph Hitler did when he took charge was confiscate all firearms. History has shown that every dictator has first disarmed the people. Every leader that institutes gun control wants to be a dictator.

    True statistics. But I don't think anyone believes that if Jews were allowed to own firearms that they would have formed a successful defense against the Nazis. I don't think gun-control made a difference in the Soviet Union after the anti-Communist Whites had already lost to the Reds in the Civil War, making a true anti-Communist insurgency impossible.

    You point to gun-control established after genocidal regimes take over. Thing is, once said genocidal regimes take over, gun-control or the lack thereof is irrelevant - they're already in control! If a radical fringe German Worker's Party wasn't allowed to collect military surplus and form their own private army, would they have been as successful in taking over the German state? If the Petrograd Soviet (the forerunner to the Communist Party) hadn't been armed to form a parallel structure to the traditional army, could they have stormed the Winter Palace?

    Switzerland has low gun-crime rates because Switzerland is not filled with criminals. If they were, the lack of gun control wouldn't make a difference because you would just have shoot outs instead of killing sprees. But you don't have either of those things in Switzerland, because their gun control policies are irrelevant because people in Switzerland are the homogeneous,...

    We don't need excessive gun control. We need the basic regulations. We need to crack down on the gun smuggling rings in Mexico. We need to hit the black market.

    Yes you are correct in terms of national defense for Switzerland (and the fact that they're in the Alps, a formidable defensive position against any invader).

    But I can't imagine a populous that was literally in LOVE with Adolf Hitler would have rose up against him. the Jews were something like 5-10% of the German population. Given that the other 90% were against them and already there were anti-Jewish riots by German citizens, wouldn't less gun control just meant those rioters would have had guns and the Jews would have stood as little chance against the Einsatzgruppen and other Government Death Squads?
  • Odinsown Zombie ... 2012/07/28 18:34:13

    Ok I see what you are saying. I think what would have happened would have been a cost/benefit thing. Yes the Jews were outnumbered however i believe that when the gestapo came to round them up, many would have been killed, just think of the damage that can be done by an urban sniper now add all of his armed coreligionists. What would have resulted is an insurgency war(we can call it 1-3 percent because not all Jews will fight back, and there will be people who sympathize who fight back), which as we all know from personal experience in this country, get very unpopular very very fast. I think that this would have shortened Hitlers reign by quite a bit.
