"The Nazis, for example, used a national firearms registration system eventually to confiscate all guns and, as they deemed necessary, to execute gun owners."

Mr. Dennis needs to read "Gateway to Tyranny" available from JPFO - Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership.
 -- Larry, North Bergen     
    I'm not quite sure how to rate this,5 stars for accuracy or a thumbs down for what Mr. Obamunist Goodwrench the assassign and the rest of his occupying statist theocracy are doing to this land. Welcome to Amerika, the plan is being re-worked.
     -- Mike, Norwalk     
    You're right about the plan being re-worked Mike. The Globalists are doing everything they can to disarm and destroy the last obstacle to world domination that stands in their path...that pesky Constitution and those who believe in it. I'm seeing a very many people who would not have ever wanted a gun in their homes...arming themselves as the picture becomes clearer to them.

    Unfortunately, this quote is historically inaccurate. The Nazis did no such thing and never confiscated all guns in private hands. In fact, the 1938 revision of the 1928 firearms law (created specifically to limit the power of the Freikorps including the Nazi SA) loosened restrictions, lowered the age at which gun permits could be obtained, and widened the kinds of firearms citizens might own. Jews, of course, we're banned from ownership.

    Nazis actually removed the gun regulations put in place by the socialist Weimar government after WWI as called for by the victorious Allies... The Nazis made gun ownership much easier for most Germans... except for Jews and liberals like the Communist and Socialists
