Skip to comments.As liberals propose more gun control, Google searches on ‘Hitler gun control’ spike
Posted on 01/10/2013 11:05:03 PM PST by grundle
Journalists were startled yesterday when Matt Drudge used photos of Hitler and Stalin on his Drudge Report website to highlight a story about Obama possibly issuing an executive order to tackle the gun issue.
But according to research on Google Trends, web users interest in the history of Hitler and gun control has spiked since Democrats began demanding more restrictions on high capacity magazines and semi-automatic weapons.
In December the keywords Hitler gun control spiked to a 100 rating - the rating given to Googles peak search volume since 2004.
Search volume for the same terms for the month of January so far is at 86 a statistic based on partial data for the month.
Hitler and Guns showed a 100 rating and a 99 rating for the month of January.
Both series of search terms are described as Breakout by the Google Trends site.
Interest in Stalins views on gun control has also spiked in recent months. Google Trends shows that searches for the words Stalin and Guns rose to a 74 rating in December 2012 and 100 in January.
Can’t gogle just change its search algorythm to fix this?

Obama signs protection bill for former presidents
Published January 10, 2013
| Associated Press
Washington President Obama has signed into law a bill granting lifetime Secret Service protection to former presidents and their wives.
The measure Obama signed Thursday applies to presidents elected after Jan. 1, 1997, specifically Obama and former President George W. Bush. It reverses a 1994 law that ended Secret Service protection 10 years after a president leaves office. Under that law, the Homeland Security secretary could extend such protection on a temporary basis.

Yep, just what you probably think it is...
Thanks for posting that map! Things that go Bang! have been hard on my hearing.
Its not absolutely current, best to double check. My ears are permanently degraded from too many bangs when I was younger.
I am a strong advocate of a sound suppression device, to the point that cannot be discussed as walls have ears.
Germany had passed extensive gun control before Hitler came to power.
