You mean like Thomas Jefferson?

"We established, however, some although not all its important principles. The constitutions of most of our States assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves, in all cases to which they think themselves competent (as in electing their functionaries executive and legislative, and deciding by a jury of themselves, in all judiciary cases in which any fact is involved), or they may act by representatives, freely and equally chosen; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed; that they are entitled to freedom of person,freedom of religion, freedom of property, and freedom of the press."--Thomas Jefferson, To John Cartwright. vii, 356.(M., 1824.)(Jefferson Cyclopedia).

Mr. Jefferson used to wear his firearm EVERYWHERE he went. I thought you LIE-berals loved Jefferson? Now you're calling him a "sissy"?

Isn't it amazing how the USSC actually overruled the US Constitution?

Which of course has already been shown to be false,(but what else can be expected from a LIE-beral?)

Those who say "it can't happen here" are totally oblivious to historical FACT;

In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

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.

1932-33 Soviet Dictator Joseph Stalin's 'government' sponsered famine, causing the deaths of 7 to 10 million in the Ukraine.

1937-38 Japanese soldiers 'Rape' Nanking province of China, causing the deaths of 300,000.

Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, 6 million Jews and countless others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.(Some estimates bring the total closer to 13 million

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.

Pol Pot's Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, over 2,000,000 people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated by the Khmer Rouge.

1992-95 Bosnia-Herzegovina conflict; 200,000 dead.

1994 Rwanda, Hutu militia kill 800,000 Tutsis.

Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of 'gun control' or from the lack of being able to defend themselves: about 64,700,000

Spelled out, that is;

SIXTY-FOUR MILLION,

SEVEN-HUNDRED

THOUSAND PEOPLE!

There are some reports, that the total number Murdered, is actuallly MUCH HIGHER!

You can copy and past your BS-pseudo facts until the cows come home the fact remains that: Not only is it over 30,000 deaths but twice as many injuries some of them life long deformities and disfigurements. Taxpayers spend over a billion each year paying health care costs to treat uninsured gunshot victims. Taxpayers spend even more money covering societal costs, such as long-term psychological problems, disability, and the loss of productivity suffered by approximately 70,000 Americans who suffer non-fatal gun shot wounds annually - it burdens the taxpayer by billions of dollars every single year.

Today I officially will (try) to stop calling O'Bama messiah and now refer to him as President Barack Schultz because he apparently "Knows nooottthhhhiiiinnnggg!"

Like I have said for over 5 years now, O'Bama is a Community Organizer and knows nothing and now he admits it and quite often at that.

Here's a list. Add to it if I have missed things he doesn't know about.

1- Fast and Furious gun running
2- Terrorist watchlist names and locations ignored
3- Benghazi assination and attack (gun running)
4- IRS targeting conservative organizations
5- AP wiretapping (without warrents)
6- Drones over America
7- Obamacare cost about to quadruple

Lies and propaganda from the NRA, programmed talking-points belched out by idiots like GunSlow on a piece-work basis. We've already CONCLUSIVELY shown that Nazi Germany, far from "instituting gun control," LIBERALIZED possession of weapons for all but a few minority groups (Jews, principally).

A combination of lies and post hoc fallacies make for poor posting. You deserve all the derision you get, assclown.

Snopes is researching this right-wing, NRA e-mail propaganda at present, but given the FACT that the part about Nazi Germany is wrong or distorted, I'm betting that the rest of it's the same. Righties always like these 'official-looking' e-mails with 'real statistics,' but usually you find out they're badly wrong or dishonest when you check them out.

The notion of blaming almost 65 million deaths over the last 100 years on gun control is, of course, insane. To take the Nazi example, Jews with rifles and pistols could NEVER have defeated the Nazi war machine, which conquered most of Europe. It took the combined might of the U.S. and USSR's armies and air forces to do that.
