    Some Gun Control Facts!

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

    1929 The Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, approximately 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    1935 China established gun control. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    1938 Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, 6 to 7 million Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, the mentally ill, and 12 million Christians who were unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    1956 Cambodia established gun control. From 1975 to 1977, one million "educated" people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

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

    1970 Uganda established gun control. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    Greece. Ireland. Jamaica. Bermuda. England. Canada. New York City. What do all of these countries or jurisdictions have in common? The answer: each government used gun registration lists to later confiscate firearms. more

    History repeats itself, always has, always will, and those who haven't learned their history is doomed to repeat with it.

    Having the Gold, they were in deed privileged to make the rules. And THAT they finally did with the Federal Reserve Act and the Federal Reserve Bank.

    This was long after the Militia became such a little known concept that People forgot about their POWER, and the day that they protected themselves from the plundering of the Creditor Class. Since that time there is a continued record of the efforts of the Creditor Class to control the flow of Arms in this land.

    To prove it, look at the Second Amendment. The Word "infringed" means to hinder. Yet the Federal Government has hindered the creation and sale (spread) of arms in this land, despite the Second Amendment. And who is in charge of overseeing this hindrance of the People being armed with the only types of weapons that they are allowed to possess pursuant to Miller v. U.S.?

    Your guns will NOT make you safe from bad government.

    If they did, we'd ALREADY have a good government.

    The juvinile response to the article is bearly worthy of any further comment, however the more one becomes informed about human nature how can one resist an overhelming respect for the insight of America's Founding fathers who were indeed Revolutionaries, and knew the great and lasting value of the 2nd Amendment.

    Or that they brought with them the prevailing attitude of their English forbears as seen in the Assize of Arms (1181) and the English Bill of Rights (1689) which enshrined the right of certain English and later British subjects to bear arms. Not so much "insight" as a continuation of English law which had been in place in the American colonies. The irony is that embedding those rights in the 2nd Amendment made it difficult for succeeding generations to institute gun control (for whatever reason). I wonder if the Founding Fathers would look at the situation in the US today with firearms and do an ....."oops" :lol:

    I think if the Founding Fathers were to look at the situation in the US today, they would be advocating revolution...and the most compelling arguments for such action would not be about gun control!

    Keep your guns.

    I don't give a rat's ass.

    They won't help you much, but if they make you feel like you have some control over your lives, they serve a purpose.
