Without Guns, We Are Subjects

A friend of mine pointed out a few pertinent facts from human 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.
See the trend? You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating these facts. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property. Gun control laws adversely impact 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, get in their face and remind them of this history lesson. With guns, we are ‘citizens’. Without them, we are ‘subjects’.

Hey, I'm trying to communicate with your group, and this is just my first mild attempt. Any chance you guys could lay off the campaigning? You hold so much power in the world, and do so little to contribute to the little guy who's overwhelming pro gun control. Not gun removal, but just a little bit of restraint.

Also, terrible article. You're clearly trying to influence us to a point without sharing an in-depth history. However, I will try to look up these instances and see how it holds up--I refuse to not consider both sides of an argument.
