Is gun control a tool of tyrants? Mother Jones doesn’t think so (emphasis mine):
In 1938, under Nazi rule, gun laws became significantly more relaxed. Rifle and shotgun possession were deregulated, and gun access for hunters, Nazi Party members, and government officials was expanded. The legal age to own a gun was lowered. Jews, however, were prohibited from owning firearms and other dangerous weapons.
Just so we’re clear (Wikipedia):
The Holocaust was the mass murder or genocide of approximately six million Jews during World War II, a programme of systematic state-sponsored murder by Nazi Germany, led by Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party
Nazi Germany, led by Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party: Guns
Six million Jews during World War II: No Guns
Why did Hitler take away their guns?
If Jews had been better armed, Spitzer says, it would only have hastened their demise.
According to Mother Jones: Hitler taking guns away from the Jews slowed their demise…
So, was Hitler really a fan of gun control? Only if he hated Jews.
