Exclusive: Ellis Washington has historical chart linking firearm restrictions to genocide
What makes the argument so powerful? Two factors. First, it makes common sense: Unarmed, defenseless people have no hope against armed aggressors. Second, it states the historical truth: Evil governments did wipe out 170,000,000 innocent non-military lives in the 20th century alone.

I am a professor at a wonderful online school called National Paralegal College (NPC). Shannon Southard, a student there recently raised some very prescient questions on the issue of gun control:
Seems that almost every shooting that has made national headlines recently has involved a shooter suffering from one form or mental issues or another. We had two tragic shootings this week one in a crowded mall another in an elementary school. Not to mention the awful shooting earlier this year at the movie theater. Who should be blamed for these individuals being able to commit such heinous acts lawmakers for allowing access to weapons, mental health professionals for possibly not treating appropriately, society for turning their backs on them?
This prompted fellow NPC student, Kathryn Dunigan to remark, Almost all the mass shooters over the past 20 years, including the ones at Columbine and the Aurora Theater were on mind altering psychiatric drugs. Is gun control really the national conversation we need, or is [it] medication control?
This comment prompted my response to Kathryn:
Dont take the easy (unconstitutional) way out.
I want you to reconsider your remarks in light of constitutional history. If you follow Obamas and the Democratic Party path to disarm

The 1968 Gun Control Act was a direct translation of a Nazi Germany anti-gun law.

Anti-gun, Leftist uses a gun to shoot an intruder:
“Sturmgewehr”=MG 44: “Assault rifle”.
Californicators stole the label `storm’ or `assault’ rifle from this German piece, and then applied it to defame any firearms they didn’t like, and now they refuse to acknowledge the accepted definition of an “assault rifle”.
You can’t have it both ways, lefty pinheads! Come and get them, whatever they are ....
And the Engliish gun control laws got started right after WWI, explicitly because the nobility worried about “uprisings”. By 1920, there were pistol laws.
The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So lets not have any native militia or native police. German troops alone will bear the sole responsibility for the maintenance of law and order throughout the occupied Russian territories, and a system of military strong-points must be evolved to cover the entire occupied country.

Senator Tom Dodd, the father of the sitting Senator Chris Dodd (he got his son his seat) was a junior military lawyer at the Nuremberg Trials and found a copy there. It was Dodd Sr. that was able to get the 1968 law through his committee and congress. My father said he knew the Dodd’s and more so Chris Dodd and believed this to be true. In any case it was the Democratic push the got the 1968 law enacted.
