Question one: was Hitler wrong to disarm the Jews? Why or why not?(Or if you’re a Godwin’s law adherent: was the South wrong to forcibly disarm blacks?)
Ben Carson’s Progressive Critics Are Terrified Of Answering This Question
And question two, should they deign to answer the first one: why did Hitler disarm the Jews?
The reason pro-gun control progressives really, really, really do not want to answer those questions is because the answers are obvious. Hitler disarmed the Jews because it made the whole process of murdering them easier on the Nazis. The Nazis didn’t want to get shot, so they disarmed anyone and everyone who might shoot at them. Like most evil tyrants, Hitler preferred to commit genocide without running the risk of being slowed down by those he intended to oppress and murder. His reason for gun confiscation was no different than the rationale used to disarm blacks in the American South.Sean Davis is the co-founder of The Federalist.
