Reminder: The Gun-Free Fantasy Existed Before…in Nazi Germany

The nationwide push for new gun control legislation has managed to sustain itself — with special help from CNN and the rest of the talking heads in the mainstream media.

After 17 students were killed in the mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, progressives have renewed their idea of a gun-free America: a peaceful utopia where violent criminals have vanished in the the ether of nonexistence once their deadly weapons were banned by the government.

Of course, this novel fantasy falls apart with a very short peak into world history. After all, a government that has the power to give you everything also has the power to take it all away: and that’s exactly what happened in Nazi Germany when Adolf Hitler’s regime amassed more and more authoritarian power.

Before the Nazis fully implemented their “final solution” — that is, their genocide against the Jewish people and everyone else the regime deemed inferior — the population was disarmed. This not only made it easier for the Nazis to round up whomever they could, but it also made it much more difficult for German citizens to organize resistance movements — which sprung up in other conquered areas more effectively.
