The nazis were able to seize power because Germany had passed gun laws

The Germans passed strict gun laws in the twenties and all guns had to be registered. After hitler was elected he took the guns from everybody who wasn't a nazi. He had all their names and addresses. Six million people were killed by their own government because their guns had been taken away. Hitler was a democraticly elected leader just like obama is. The jews were killed by their government, not by a crazy person in a theater. The anti gun people in this country need to study a little history.

Hitler gained power using the most dangerous weapon of all,..

What people don't know is that Hitler was pro gun and pro regist

Hitler repealed anti Gun laws at first, but passed strict Gun registration which worked peacefully for 10+ years. Then Hitler used gun registration to disarm his enemies. Many complied since he brought them prosperity and was a well like leader, boy was that a mistake.

Sound familiar?

I can't believe how many

I can't believe how many people still like obama. My dad thinks he walks on water and he refuses to even listen to the truth.

Right? How is he not in jail for treason

Fast & Furious, NDAA, resigned PATRIOT Act. Broke almost all his campaign promises. He did raise taxes after promising just months ago that wouldn't happen.

How can anyone like that guy??? Oh yeah, that's all the Republicans fault. Democrats do no wrong lol

My dad was the opposite the last election, I showed him video after video of Mitt flip flopping, showed him Mitt talking about gun control and signing the assault weapons ban(My Dad really should've taken the bait there, He's a lifetime NRA member) but his only answer during election season was "He's better than Obama" to which I would reply "just 8 more years of Obama instead of 4) That pissed him off.

I've been making ground for Rand though, Dad wouldn't vote for Ron but he's already saying he'll vote for Rand in 2016.

I actually convinced my dad

I actually convinced my dad to vote for ron paul in the republican primary as a personal favor to me even though he told me he was going to vote for obama in november.

i am

dismayed that we are at this point that this is the crux of our argument.

the right to self defense is not bestowed upon us. our own history clearly shows this.

that the mob is cheering as our dictator indicates he alone may "revoke" these rights is not a good sign.
which other rights can evaporate by executive order?

I made this post in july but it seems very appropriate today.

Just a slight correction --

Approximately 13 million people died in the holocaust. Roughly 6.5 million of them were Jews.


Official plaque revised from 4 million down to 1.5 million:


Official Red Cross figures on camp deaths:



Also, it wasn't a "holocaust". Those people died of typhus, typhoid and starvation. The starvation mainly being caused by Allied bombings cutting off food supply to the camps.

right,I was talking about the

right,I was talking about the jews but he also killed gypsies,disabled people, and prisoners of war.

and the Slavs

Polish and Czechoslovakians, Gay people you name it.

Why the down vote?

Seriously, it is often incorrectly stated that "six million people died in the holocaust" when in actual fact it was much worse. Jews, Gypsies, communists, Protestants, Catholics, Jehovah's Witnesses and many others were put to death either for their beliefs or for speaking out about the horrors of the Nazi regime.

I thought it was 6 million

I thought it was 6 million Jews and 11 million total? Always wondered why they usually only reference the 6 million Jews, as if the other 5 million never existed.

Hitler made his citizens have guns

I understand the point about the second amendment and the need for citizens to have the ability to protect themselves from their own government, and it is true that enemies of the state in a totalitarian regime obviously were stripped of all legal rights, were persecuted, and some killed. However, the idea that Hitler disarmed the German population is total BS!!! When the Germans passed gun laws in the 20's that was the Weimar government, NOT the Nazis, who actually encouraged their citizens be armed. The Nazi takeover was due to a million other factors, not because the citizens were helpless and disarmed. Hitler attained power democratically in the beginning, and his government had the highest approval rating ever in history until the war was lost.


there is no left or right, only system and anti-system.

Yes, but he had strict gun registration

One had to be approved and get a 1 year permit to buy a gun. Hitler used this gun registration to disarm and overwhelm his enemies after using gun registration peacefully for years. This is why we cannot under any circumstance comply with gun registration.

Hitler wanted the people in

Hitler wanted the people in his political party armed, the nazis. He was able to find and take the guns of anyone who might oppose him because of gun control laws that were passed before he came to power. People had to have a permit to have a gun and he just denied or revoked the permits. It was all done through the legal system, not by a military coup.
