Liberals policy is to transform America into the tyranny our forefathers fled from.

The problem is not that people are looking for connections between Hitler's regime and gun control.

The problem is, they're FINDING them. Lots of them.

What they`re finding is that Hitler issued every able bodied male a firearm and a snappy looking uniform to wear.

I'm glad they're doing this search. Because they're finding out that the right wing attempt to link Hitler with gun control turns out to be another gun-nut hallucination.

Here are the first 3 returns:

Was Hitler Really a Fan of Gun Control? | Mother Jones

Quote:
In 1938, under Nazi rule, gun laws became significantly more relaxed. Rifle and shotgun possession were deregulated and gun access for hunters, Nazi Party members, and government officials was expanded. The legal age to own a gun was lowered. Jews, however, were prohibited from owning firearms and other dangerous weapons.

Unfortunately for those who would like to link Hitler and the National Socialists with gun control, the entire premise for such an effort is false. German firearms legislation under Hitler, far from banning private ownership, actually facilitated the keeping and bearing of arms by German citizens by eliminating or ameliorating restrictive laws which had been enacted by the government preceding his: a left-center government which had contained a number of Jews.
The Hitler gun control lie - Salon.com

Quote:
The 1938 law signed by Hitler that LaPierre mentions in his book basically does the opposite of what he says it did. “The 1938 revisions completely deregulated the acquisition and transfer of rifles and shotguns, as well as ammunition,” Betancourt wrote. Meanwhile, many more categories of people, including Nazi party members, were exempted from gun ownership regulations altogether, while the legal age of purchase was lowered from 20 to 18, and permit lengths were extended from one year to three years.

Well it is good that people are searching and educating themselves and learning that Conservative Hyperbole is just that, fake outrage to connect false historical connections.

...And most of them didn't come back from Russia or France, while those lucky few who did came back to bombed out ruins.

IT IS NOT CRAZY TO BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR THE NEXT HITLER

IF one thing can be counted on about the human race, it's that humanity will consistently put out megalomaniacal madmen with grand power schemes and a complete disregard for the sanctity of life.

75 years ago our grandaddies risked everything, sacrified greatly, somehow came out on top and said "NEVER AGAIN"...

They are almost all gone now... it's now our turn to stand watch.

I don't know, depends on what the context of racism is. Obviously racism is real, but I am sure there are fake racism outrage as well.

But in this case, Hitler didn't come for Germany's guns, instead he gave every non-Jew a gun and told them where to point it. If this country ever gets a Hitler he will come from the far-right trying to eradicate a type of person in our country....my guess it would be Muslims and Mexicans, with some nice quarantining of the Blacks just to be safe.

And what group did Hitler kill?

Gun control works great. As long as you're the group that has the guns.
