Your Opinion: Statistics on gun control and genocide

Dear Editor:

I ran across some statistics that are worth pondering.

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, about 1.5 million Armenians unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

Germany established gun control in 1938. From 1939 to 1945, 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 no 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, 1 million “educated” people unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in just the 20th century because of gun control: 56 million.

But you say, “We live in the United States of America and we have a constitution and laws that protect our right to own and bear arms.” What do we have in common with all of the countries listed above? Huh! Well since you asked, all are or were controlled by Marxist Leninist leaders. But you say, “We have laws that protect us from the government.”

Have you been paying attention to the news lately? Obama just delayed for a year, the implementation of the employer mandate in Obamacare.

Even though the law that was passed, with not one Republican vote in all 535 congressmen and senators, does not have a provision that allows the president to do any such thing. The granting of all the waivers in association with Obamacare. Nancy Pelosi saying the we have to pass it to see what was in the Obamacare law!

Our junti is no different than Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, or any of the other despots listed above.

The only difference is that our junti is the most powerful the world has ever know whereas for the others, there once was a nation that stood against such tyranny, but no more. You Obamabots have a “ruler” that has “changed” the USA.
