Well gun bans in both the UK and Australia did bring down gun homicides so I'd say I have something to backup my theory and gun control was brought into Germany in 1919 long before Hitler and were even relaxed greatly in 1928 and 1938 requiring people to have a permit to own a gun and gun manufacturers to keep records of weapons bought and sold and even lowering ownership age to 18.
I'm not sure where you see Hitler bragging though.
I'm not saying I don't support "reasonable" restrictions, I'm not totally closed minded to the fact that things designed for the purpose of killing, if placed in the wrong hands, can be used for terrible crimes. However I, and none of the millions of people around this country who own guns and participate in legal activities and organizations with those weapons, will ever permit a total ban, nor will we tolerate one if it gets forced on us, and it annoys me when people suggest that banning guns will all of a sudden make all the bad guys just put their hands up, turn in their illegal guns, and say sorry. I mean our own president illegally and knowingly sold guns to Mexican drug cartels, and had a border patrol agent not been killed with one of them, nobody would have known, and to this day, for some reason, nobody seems to be giving the issue any real attention. If "I" had sold those guns to the Mexicans, I'd be facing the death penalty right now, ridiculed by the public, and probably referenced by some far left winger as a supporting reason for gun control in the U.S. But since it's the President, and the first ever half black one to boot, nobody seems to really care.
For some reason this got stuck in with my other post and made it look all jumbled.
A quote from Hitler.
Adolf Hitler said:
“The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let’s not have any native militia or native police. German troops alone will bear the sole responsibility for the maintenance of law and order throughout the occupied Russian territories, and a system of military strong-points must be evolved to cover the entire occupied country.”
