Below I copied a snip that I thought  was a good compilation of the history of the tight relationship gun control has with tyranny. Someone identified as “way2confused” in an obvious reference to gun control freaks posted it in the comments section of a Washington Times article, link provided.

After the list is done, he rightly points out that the country with the lowest crime rate in the world, and the lowest in gun crime, is also the one that requires all households to have one. Hitler may well have been stopped in his tracks if he had tried to annex the German part of Switzerland instead of Sudetenland, because all the individuals of the language and ethnic groups there are proud of their common political bond.

(As a side note, Switzerland also is one of the most non-interventionist nations in the world while at the same time no one can accuse them of being isolationist. That’s something that could have been said more often during the 2012 U.S. presidential campaign.)

Here’s the comment:

You can’t have a new world order and a totalitarian system when people have guns. In ALL socialistic/communistic/dictatorships, the FIRST thing they did was issue gun control, then a total gun ban.

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’.

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

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.

Spread the word everywhere you can that you are a firm believer in the 2nd
Amendment!

It’s time to speak loud before they try to silence and disarm us.
You’re not imagining it, history shows that governments always manipulate
tragedies to attempt to disarm the people.

So there you have it, link and all. “The only thing man learns from history is that man never learns from history”. Some of us might. I was wondering when the control freaks would start grabbing guns, because there is a dollar crash coming and if/when the house of paper dollars come tumbling, and the ledger entries start shrinking, there will be a lot of angry people.

The architects responsible for the collapse will throw the propaganda media into high gear blaming the victims Mom and Pop businesses who lost their wherewithal to a gang of bankers and swindlers with suits who work for those intellectual authors of the looting. The ones who abused them will get their support for seizing even more power.

But there will be a great many who will know what happened, and many of those discovered each other during Ron Paul‘s historic and educational presidential campaign. They include millions of really young adults who have tasted what political and economic freedom looks like and why they are twins of the same mother.

It’s not all over yet. There are very rough times ahead, because there is a rich and powerful elite that has the taste of absolute power in its mouth, and is getting ever more rabid and bold in its machinations, and they have not hesitated to use false flag operations, assassinations, coverups, moles, drone strikes, and terror plots stopped by the FBI that were engineered by the FBI.

And the US certainly will have a lesser role in world history than most Americans think. It will decline in power, but then the Beast of the coming World Government will still have his hands full with rebellions against central control breaking out all over.

“He shall come to his end, and none shall help him”.

Tyrants always crack down on guns first

Before tyrants “become” tyrants, they are simply politicians. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance. One of the biggest reasons for respecting the right of individuals to the means to defend themselves is for protection against attacks by their government. One of the reasons founders like Patrick Henry and Gouverneur Morris forced the Second Amendment (with the other liberties explicitly respected) as a condition for ratification, was because the British had come attacking.

 

They attacked to protect the enforcement of the stamp act (and the self-written warrants to enforce them) and the tyranny of colonial rule.

 

The first step in the tyranny recipe is almost always gun control, adding ever more until finally it becomes gun confiscation. The propagandists do their job, many even believe in it, telling people they’re not interested in confiscation, just control and licensing.

 

There is never enough, because the more difficult it is for the people who obey the laws to get them, the more vulnerable they are, like in Newtown, Connecticut.

 

With the accumulation of records, then, what has happened after licensing they only have to look up the records and they know where to go to get them from freedom-loving citizens who might object to being arrested for speaking to their neighbors, or anything else they deem a “threat to national security”.

 

Germany’s Interior Minister bragged after Germany’s gun confiscation about how safe the streets were now. After licensing and registration controls, Turkey’s government knew which Armenians had weapons to confiscate, a couple of years before the massacre.

 

 

This assistant principal in Pearl High School in Pearl, Miss, stopped a shooter using his own

Of course all the official government-media complex propaganda organs immediately went ballistic about guns with the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. But there have been several incidents where school shootings were stopped by an armed civilian, but there would have been more if not for the stupid law that says schools should be zones where the right of self-defense is not respected.

http://rkba.org/users/myrick.txt

..But this assistant principal Myrick had to run to his car outside the school-area “gun-free” zone to get the gun he used to hold the shooter for the police.

What if he had been able to keep his firearm in his desk at school?

Many of the 61 school shootings they’re spouting about in Propaganda Media could have been stopped cold if more teachers had been able to bring their weapons on to campus.

Some gun control believers are even using arguments that show they do not even check there own facts. One blogger asked whether his reader “had ever heard of a mass killing being stopped by the use of guns even once”.

 

Why do the disinformation operatives think that the worst incidents happen in places like schools? Criminals have no problem getting guns! Heck, even if you’re the most ruthless drug-smuggling cartel on earth, you might even get the United States Justice Department to sell you some!

Guns are used much more often to stop crimes than to commit them, and they level the playing field for those who are smaller or weaker, or more often targets, like women.

IT takes just plain people sharing the stories to tell it, since the media covers this up.

http://www.thehighroad.org/archive/index.php/t-270374.html

It just makes sense though. Why do cops have guns? Because they face the criminals. So why shouldn’t decent citizens have them.

Besides, who will protect us if the government turns bad? It’s happened, after all, throughout history. Germany the Jews, Turkey the Armenians. the Bolsheviks, the Maoists

And this blogger put together a list of occasions where potential mass murders were stopped cold by a civilian with a firearm: http://www.volokh.com/2012/12/14/do-civilians-armed-with-guns-ever-capture-kill-or-otherwise-stop-mass-shooters/

There are many he did not list, though. In Israel, early on, guns were banned to the population, but at some point, being a nation that has an interest in stopping crimes of this nature, passed a law that legalized concealed carry.

Shortly afterward, a group of PLO militia stormed a shopping mall and started shooting everybody in sight. One elderly granny pulled her concealed weapon out and started shooting back, and the attackers panicked in confusion. One of the wounded attackers told a paramedic, “We didn’t expect anybody to shoot back!”

Another incident was in a mixed-race church in South Africa during the times of apartheid. You have to ask why a radical anti-apartheid group would attack a mixed race church, no doubt expecting no one would shoot back. The answer is that they don’t generally really care about what they say, they are commanded by leaders who only think about how to attain power over the populace, using ideology as a cloak. That church had a member who possessed his weapon, an off-duty policeman, and he stopped them.
