Jews and gypsies were a much later step. Guns were an early one. By the time he's gassing segments of the population, it's a little late for comparisons, you're already under an evil dictator.

Besides, the "Jewish lobby" would block any attempt like that.

If you think Hitler rolled into town and started gassing people the next day, pick up a history book. The people were behind him as he gradually changed their country. Sound familiar now?

Yes...but there are numerous other countries that have banned guns and none of them have turned into evil regimes bent on taking over the world.

Just sayin.

Required statement: While I do not agree with Obama's moves or motives on this topic, I don't feel like a comparison to Hitler is a valid one. I feel like there are far more important topics for Congress to debate and (gasp!) solve than gun control. For example, fix our sh!tty welfare and social security system.

Do you know anything about history? The proper response is not all gun control lead to evil regimes trying to take over the world.

Please google Stalin, Mao, Hutu, china in the late 40's, etc

The list goes on, maybe every single time it's not the case but to often to overlook it is. Besides that its a guaranteed right in the constitution it says clearly the right to bear arms shall not be infringed, nothing about high cap mags, assault looking weapons, etc.

^ How history repeats itself. Minus the specifics, you could just about change the date on that video to today and it'd fit perfectly.

I hope this NEVER happens again however it does make you wonder "when am I going to need my pistol". I decided to get my CHL but carry only here and there. I realize this is a choice I made and I need carry all the time, no exceptions (unless prohibited by law).

If you do decide to sell, a serial number must be applied to it I believe.
You can sell/transfer it but the only way you can do that is to register it as an NFA item , pay 200$ (even if its not) or die and bequeath it by will or intestate succession to a heir
