Saw this on Facebook…
So, this is what Hitler actually said:
The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their fall by doing so.
As know, Hitler had gun control only for the subject races. He actually loosened gun laws for Germans. But, then again, who cares about facts when anyone can make up an anti-Obama quote and give it to Hitler.
But, this brings to mind a recent article about the Founders.
“In this state,” he said, “there are two hundred and thirty-six thousand blacks, and there are many in several other states. But there are few or none in the Northern States. . . . May Congress not say, that every black man must fight? Did we not see a little of this last war? We were not so hard pushed as to make emancipation general; but acts of Assembly passed that every slave who would go to the army should be free.”
There a lot of quotes going around from the Founders about gun control, but rarely are contexts applied. Mason, who seems to favor individual guns for the defense against a tyrannical threat, in better context, is shown for what he was actually saying. Oddly enough, gun control again became an issue in the 1960’s when the Civil Rights movement was reaching a zenith. Why? Because suddenly white guys realizes that black guys could get guns.
So, please, continue to post anti-Obama memes involving Hitler… But when History is known, the many of the Founders were more closely aligned with Hitler on the race issue, and thus arming the “subject races” than you really want to know.
