The claims about gun control and the Holocaust are bogus [View all]

Factually inaccurate revisionist history, like that promoted by the Tea Party, is the intellectual equivalent of lead poisoning. It dumbs down America. This is true of world history being distorted and subverted, and it is true of the claims about WW II and gun control. Right wing gun control opponents persist in circulating fake Hitler quotes, as an example. Accurate history, not gun control, is the best way to prevent future Holocausts from ever happening again.

ADL calls on conservatives to keep Nazi analogies out of gun debate

January 25, 2013

WASHINGTON (JTA) -- The Anti-Defamation League called on conservatives to keep Nazi analogies out of the gun control debate.

"The idea that supporters of gun control are doing something akin to what Hitlerís Germany did to strip citizens of guns in the run-up to the Second World War is historically inaccurate and offensive, especially to Holocaust survivors and their families," Abraham Foxman, ADL's national director, said Thursday in a statement.

The statement cited the proliferation of such arguments among gun control opponents in the wake of calls for greater gun controls after last month's massacre of first graders in Connecticut by a lone gunman.

The Drudge Report headlined the White House's announcement of such proposals with mug shots of Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin and an array of conservative pundits have claimed that the Holocaust would not have been inevitable had Jews been able to bear arms.
