Hitler took the guns away from Jews. No one else. The Jews.
This is a historic fact, easily proven, which seems to have no effect on the liars who continue to deliberately spread the untruth.
I don’t give two hoots in hell about gun control. I’m sorry, I don’t. It’s all just a bunch of political talk, and our do-nothing Congress has sat on its butt on the gun control issue just like it has on every other issue.
Yes, I own guns. No, I don’t think the government is going to make a list (via registration) and come after my guns. For what it’s worth, “the government” – counting the military and law enforcement personnel (federal agents, cops, sheriff’s deputies, everybody) owns about FOUR MILLION guns.
If it comes down to a gunfight, “the government” is screwed. Private citizens in this nation own THREE HUNDRED MILLION guns.
Not that ANYBODY in “the government” is talking about taking away anyone’s guns. You really need to get a mental health exam if your paranoia is so deep that you think Barack Obama’s Secret Muslim Army is coming to get your guns.
Back to the Hitler lie, which – even though they’ve been called on it time and again – people like Mike Huckabee and Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity continue to repeat day after day. Here’s the thing. When Hitler grabbed power in Germany, the average household was armed to the teeth with rifles, handguns, and all manner of firearms. World War 1 was still very much in the recent past, and Germans had PLENTY of guns.
It was far from “the first thing that he did”, but Adolf Hitler DID take guns away from the Jews. No one else; just the Jews. And we know what followed.
And those of you who know me well enough know why “what followed” is still a very personal thing.
I know this rant won’t change anything. But if one more person repeats the “first thing Hitler did was take away the guns” thing within my hearing, I’m going to educate them with a very loud voice.
