The Real History And Purpose Of Gun Control In America
In America today, most law-abiding American citizens who happen to live in any Democrat controlled urban area of this country, are being denied their constitutional right to defend themselves with a gun. The people living in these areas, from all races and ethnic backgrounds, men and women, gay and straight, have been subjected to gun control restrictions passed by local Democratic “progressive” administrations over many years that are specifically designed to keep them under control on the new 21st century urban plantations, without the rights that citizens in other parts of the country currently enjoy.
We have only to look to Chicago, Illinois, a showplace of the 21st century Democrat-controlled plantation, to see the effects of the most restrictive gun control legislation in the country that has completely disarmed the law abiding citizens in that city. Mayor Ron Emanuel (D), a gun control activist, likes to compare his city to other so-called world class ‘Alpha cities.’ Well, let us see how Chicago does compare. Chicago has the highest murder rate of any Alpha City in the world, yes – in the world (19.4 per 100,000) — higher even than the Third World cities of Mexico City (8.0), Sao Paolo, Brazil (15.6) and Moscow (9.6). Apparently, strict gun control does not work in Chicago.
If Chicago isn’t proof enough that gun-control legislation does not work, maybe those pushing for stricter gun control laws can learn a little from history.
In 1929, the communist Soviet Union established gun control and from 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up under the leadership of Joseph Stalin and exterminated by their own government.
In 1935, China established gun control. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated by their own communist government, under Mao Tse-Tung.
Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, under the leadership of communist Pol Pot, one million ‘educated’ people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated by their own government.
In 1938, the National Socialist (Nazi) government of Germany under Adolph Hitler enacted the nationwide German Weapons Act that replaced the Law on Firearms and Ammunition of 1928. The Nazis had inherited “registration lists” of firearm owners and their firearms when they ‘lawfully’ took over in March 1933 and used these lists in 1938 to seize the privately held firearms from persons who were “not reliable” like the Jews and other enemies of the government.
Nazi’s are often portrayed by the left in America as being on the extreme right, when in fact, the real name of the Nazi Party was the National Socialist Party. They were the extreme liberal “Progressives” of their time in Germany. When they finally took power, they passed laws to eventually restrict gun ownership to Nazi party members and other “reliable” people. From 1939 to 1945, a total of 6 million Jews and 7 million other people, mostly Christians, who were unable to defend themselves because they had no guns, were rounded up and exterminated by the left-wing National Socialist government (Nazis).
Justifying the confiscation of firearms from the “unreliable people, Adolph Hitler, in his Edict (similar to an executive order of a U.S. President) of March 18, 1939, said:
“History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subjected peoples to carry arms have prepared their own fall.”
American citizens in 2013 who happen to disagree with the implementation of expanding socialist programs in the USA or who resist attacks of their Second Amendment Rights, whether they are members of the so-called tea party, OathKeepers, or just plain citizens, are often called “right-wing extremists,” “Nazi’s” or “Facist’s” when in fact the Nazis and Facists were socialists and on the far left of the political spectrum, not the right.
In Italy, when the Facist movement was founded in 1919, most of its leaders, like Mussolini, were Marxists and radical leftists who were followers of the revolutionary doctrines of a leftist revolutionary named George Sorel. The Facists called themselves ‘revolutionary nationalists’ and there was nothing conservative about them. After he took power, Mussolini also outlawed the possession of guns by the people and confiscated millions of weapons to insure that the people were powerless to resist his socialist government.
All in all, in the 20th century, a total of 56 million people were rounded up and exterminated by their communist-socialist governments because of gun control. Had they not been able to initially legally impose some strict gun-control on their people, these communist-socialist governments would not have been able to kill so many millions of their own people.
In 1968, the U.S. Congress passed the Gun Control Act of 1968 hat was later found to be based almost entirely, word for word, on the German Weapons Act of 1938. Apparently, then Senator Thomas J. Dodd (D-CT) had obtained a copy of the Nazi Weapons Law (in German) and had it translated into English by the Library of Congress in July of 1968, before submitting the bill in the Senate.
When it came to disarming those “non-reliable people” (Jews and others) in Germany, the Nazis had proven their skills. If Senator Dodd was looking for a model for disarming those “non-reliable people” in America, he found the German Weapons Law of 1938 as a good blueprint. Gun control has always been about “people control.” It shouldn’t be surprising that a totalitarian regime like the National Socialist regime of Adolph Hitler’s Germany could offer plenty of great suggestions on the subject to their fellow Socialists in America.
Politicians of the left in America have been trying to take our guns away for over 100 years and nothing has changed as you can see from the following quotes from some of America’s socialists posing as Democrats:
“Our task of creating a Socialist America can only succeed when those who would resist us have been totally disarmed.” Sarah Brady, Chairman, Handgun Control Inc.[ Source: The National Educator, January 1994, Pg.3
“We can’t be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans…” Bill Clinton, USA Today, 11 March 1993, pg. 2a
“Waiting periods are only a step. Gun Registration is only a step. The prohibition of private firearms is the goal.” Former Attorney General Janet Reno, 10 Dec 1993.
“What good does it do to ban just some guns. All guns should be banned.” Senator Howard Metzanbaum (D-OH)
Senator Dianne Feinstein: “If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an out-right ban, picking up every one of them……., I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren’t here.” CBS-TV’s “60 Minutes”, February 5, 1995.
It’s easy to see that the modern progressive socialists in the United States are showing their true colors and they are now more aligned with ideals of the socialist dictators like Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse-Tung and Pol Pot, than they are with the American people.
Isn’t it ironic that all the socialists in the media, Hollywood and in various level of government who are calling for stricter gun laws all have either armed private security guards and services available to them, or have armed government agents and police protecting them. Our Mayors are protected by people with guns; our Governors are protected by people with guns; members of the House, Senate and the President, are protected by a lot of people with guns; our judges, courts and government buildings are protected by people with guns as are the corporate CEO’s and the Billionaire socialists.
It’s not that the American socialists want to ban all guns in America. No, they just want to ban those guns owned by those that Adolph Hitler called the “not reliable people.” That means the average Americans like you and I. The President, Senator Feinstein, Mayors Blumberg and Ron Emanuel, the Hollywood elite, corporate executives, and all high ranking government officials will still have their guns. Only the average American citizens will be disarmed and defenseless.
What do the socialists base their position on? Well, not the facts. That’s for sure.
In 2011, there were 14,748 murders in the United States. Rifles were used on only 352 of these murders. More people were murdered with knives, with blunt weapons like baseball bats and tire irons, or beaten to death with hands and feet, than were killed with rifles. Assault rifles are used so infrequently in homicides that many police departments almost never see them; in 2011, there were nine states that did not have a single murder committed with any rifle.
