3. Tasteless, specious, but maybe not bogus in terms of a low number of alternate realities

 

There is no way to know how history might have played differently. Hitler could have been assassinated. might have resisted more effectively.

The one thing it is, is pointless conjecture.

Our government and citizenry, as flawed as they are, are less likely (IMHO) to go full monty on wholesale extermination of a class or race in my opinion. Comparisons of anything happening in the country to the Holocaust diminishes what happened to the Jews. Slavery is the only thing that compares.

Do I think would try something similarly evil if given the opportunity, sure. Is it Obama? Fuck no.

Basically the whole gun control / Nazi thing is a lousy argument ; there are ample superior, contemporary, and valid gun-rights arguments that can be made. The Nazi argument is the caliber thinking that goes into drafting the AWB
