Indeed. That's why gun control is evil, even if its proponents are not evil themselves. The gun grabbers of the Weimar Republic had only the best intentions, I have no doubt.

And in 1984 it happened here in America. Sort of. In the movie Red Dawn gun owners are IDed from the sales records they filled out each time they bought a gun.Stetson said:When Nazi's invaded Norway they went to every town hall because

In a later scene a Cuban officer orders one of his men to report to the local office of records and obtain the paperwork of local citizens who own firearms. The Cuban officer specifically refers to Form 4473, which is the actual form used to record the sale of a firearm by a dealer to a private citizen in the United States.
Hunting had always been an upper-class sport in Germany, and many people owned sporting rifles. During WW-II all officers had their own sidearms, generally .32-cal for the deskbound, and P-38s for officers in the field. Thus, the populace was essentially as armed as the US. However, German society was quite different. Germany was never the wild West. It did not have a pioneer background, and nobody hunted for food.Steelhorse said:http://www.guncite.com/gun_control_gcnazimyth.html
