Hitler Certainly Did NOT "Take All The Guns Away"




I’ve had it.  I mean, really had it.  There is no longer any denying the fact that this “first thing Hitler did was take away the guns” meme is a deliberate lie being spread by a certain group of people.

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.

  1. And we know what followed.

    Yes, we do. And we remember, too.

    Perhaps the next one will take them away from Catholics.

    1. Yes, because taking guns away from Catholics is a wholly likely scenario with a huge probability of happening in a constitutional republic.

      Oh, wait - I forgot the Cheney Doctrine: if it has a 1% probabilily of happening, you must treat it as a certainty.

      I guess you beleive the Cheney Doctrine applies to probabilities less than .001%.

  2. Baby Face Nelson and David Koresh agree: Don't get into a gunfight with the government.

  3. Then there are the people who are worried about the bad Government coming to get their guns who have willing given the government all kinds of information about themselves including that they may be armed so that they could get a concealed carry permit. No irony there. Those who think that they can get in a fight with the Government and win are as delusional as the North Koreans who think that they can win a war with our Government. Come on people wake up.
