Re: this comment about Hitler and gun control:

“Like Hitler, Stalin and Mao, seizing the firearms of the citizenry is the first step toward despotism.”

Stalin and Mao were gun grabbers. But Hitler wasn’t. An important point about Hitler and gun control laws is that Hitler relaxed Germany’s gun laws in 1938 [1]. Under Hitler’s rule, citizens could own guns with a permit (unless they were a criminal, a Jew or a gypsy). Nazi Party members were often exempt from gun laws entirely. Hitler was not a “gun grabber,” despite the many claims that he was. It was the prior, liberal German governments that created harsh gun laws; the lies about Hitler and his policies could fill 50 books.


[1] About German gun laws: “The Law on Firearms was implemented by the Decree of March 19, 1938 (RGBl., p.270), as amended by the Decree of March 31, 1939 (RGB1., p. 656) and by the Decree of April 4, 1940 (RGB1., p. 603)…Whoever wanted to obtain handguns or ammunition for them needed a ‘license to obtain firearms’ (Waffenerwerbschein). Handguns or ammunition acquired on the basis of such a license could be kept in the home, at the place of business, or on the property of the licensee. However, another license (Waffenschein) was required to carry firearms or ammunition.” — from GUN CONTROL LAWS IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES; Library of Congress Law Library; Prepared by Members of the Staff; 188 pages; Revised 1976. https://www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/Digitization/47878NCJRS.pdf
