    Gun History
    After reading the following historical facts,
    read the part
    about Switzerland twice.

    A LITTLE GUN HISTORY


    In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control.
    . .
    From 1929 to 1953,
    about 20 million dissidents,

    unable to defend themselves, were rounded
    up and exterminated.

    ------------------------------

    In 1911, Turkey established gun control.

    From 1915 to 1917, 1..5 million Armenians,
    unable to defend themselves,
    were rounded up and exterminated.
    ------------------------------

    Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945,

    a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
    ------------------------------
    China established gun control in 1935.

    From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents,
    unable to defend themselves,
    were rounded up and
    exterminated
    ------------------------------



    Guatemala established gun control in 1964.
    From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians,
    unable to defend themselves,
    were rounded up and exterminated.
    ------------------------------

    Uganda established gun control in 1970.

    From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians,
    unable to defend themselves,
    were rounded up and exterminated
    ------------------------------

    Cambodia established gun control in 1956.

    From 1975 to 1977, one million
    educated people, unable to defend themselves,

    were rounded up and exterminated.
    -----------------------------

    Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.
    -----------------------------

    You won't see this data on the US evening news,

    or hear politicians disseminating this information.

    Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes,
    gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens
    .

    Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late!

    The next time someone talks in favor of gun control,

    please remind them of this history lesson.

    With guns, we are 'citizens.'
    Without them, we are 'subjects'.

    During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew
    most Americans were ARMED!

    If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun control message
    to all of your friends.

    The purpose of fighting is to win.

    There is no possible victory in defense.
    The sword is more important than the shield,
    and skill is more important than either.
    The final weapon is the brain.
    All else is supplemental.
    SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN!
    SWITZERLAND 'S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT
    THEY ISSUE A RIFLE.
    SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY
    CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!
    IT'S A NO BRAINER!
    DON'T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS
    IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.

    I'm a firm believer of the 2nd Amendment!

    If you are too,
    please forward.
    Learn from history.

    It goes back even further and here in the US is rooted 100% in racism.

    The Racist Roots of Gun Control

    YouTube - JPFO: No Guns for Negroes (Part 1)

    YouTube - JPFO: No Guns for Negroes (Part 2)

    Little known fact - Martin Luther King Jr. and other prominent civil rights activists wouldn't have lasted long enough to make the impact they did without an armed group called the Deacons for Defense and Justice. Almost nobody knows this group even existed, even though, armed, they faced down night riders and racist cops on several occasions. Just the very visible fact that these guys were armed and willing to fight back was enough to keep activists from being killed.

    One other interesting side note - long before he was NRA president, Charlton Heston recognized the rightness of the civil rights movement and marched with them long before it was fashionable to do so in Hollywood.

    There's absolute truth in the historical fact of banning guns then rounding up the citizens for extermination. That being said, consider this about President Obama's environment czar, John Holdren:

    According to Holdren the purported 70s scare about global cooling, and now today's concern about global warming, both require, according to Holdren, government-mandated population control measures. In the 1977 textbook Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment, which Holdren co-authored with environmentalist Paul R. Ehrlich, these methods include forced abortions, restrictions on family size, government seizure of illegitimate children, and sterilants added to the water supply. The authors argued that the Constitution supported "compulsory" abortion but did not allow an unlimited right to have children. Holdren and Ehrlich also advocated a transnational "Planetary Regime" to control the global economy and dictate--by force--the number of children allowed to be born on Earth. As recently as in a 2008 speech published in Science magazine, Holdren targeted "continuing population growth" as a hindrance to "sustainable well-being."

    Your fears and concerns are legitimate.

    FWIW, you guys will inflict a lot more damage on leftists by pointing out the racist past and roots of gun control in the USA than with anything else. The left is always trying to paint itself as being the side that's pulling for minorities...

    It's also fun to point out that the right to bear arms benefits gays greatly, and watch the gears spin. :lolz:

    Of course, this doesn't work on some of the socialists - they're interested in power, not ideology.

    And I'd put that ratio at about 80/20...IMO.

    Nah, there are more useful idiots than there are leader-types. Sometimes you just have to chip through the BS that they've got caked over their ears. Turning PC against them works great for it IMO.

    I mentioned in another thread that guns and ammo have been flying off the shelves since the election. Where is all the crime and murder the gun control crowd promised?

    That dog don't hunt. The anti crowd doesn't care about silly things like "logic" or "facts" when they can use "feelings" and "belief" instead.

    Trust me, turn PC against them and they almost always wither. It works because, for our side PC can simply be a tool in the box - means to an end. The liberals have turn the means into its own end. They now worship the very tool they created as they would a god, and it's time for them to suffer for it.
