Nine Major Genocides by Aaron Zelman
The Framers of the United States Constitution gave Citizens the right to bear arms so that they could protect themselves from tyrannical governments. In nine major genocides of the twentieth century, at least 74 million people were slaughtered by their own governments.
- 1915 - 1917 Ottoman Turkey, 1 - 1.5 million Armenians murdered
- 1929 - 1945 Soviet Union, 20 million people opponents (or perceived opponents) of Stalin murdered
- 1933 - 1945 Nazi-occupied Europe, 20 million Jews, Gypsies, disabled people, homosexuals and political opponents of Hitler murdered
- 1927-1949 Nationalist China, 10 million political opponents, army conscripts and others murdered
- 1949 - 1976 Communist China, 20 million political opponents, rural people or "enemies of the state" murdered
- 1960 - 1981 Guatemala, 100,000 Mayan Indians Murdered
- 1971 - 1979 Uganda, 300,000 Christians and political rivals of Idi Amin murdered
- 1975 - 1979 Cambodia, 1 million educated people murdered
- 1994 Rwanda, 800,000 Tutsi people murdered.
Each mass murder was preceded by enactment of gun-control laws. Each murdered population was first disarmed. Leaders of each murderous government were looking for an unpopular group on which to pin the blame for persistent problems. The newly published book, Death By Gun Control by Aaron Zelman and Richard W. Stevens has the details.
What will happen if the U.S. allows itself to fall into that vicious spiral?
Don't believe "It can't happen here." It can. When powerful people, seeking to impose perfect solutions from above, find that every road to Utopia fails, they're all too willing to take the path that lies over the bodies of the dead or the enslaved.
Efforts to legislate sweeping, top-down solutions to human problems always fail, and for two good reasons. First, not all human problems can be solved. Second, any attempt to impose universal, one-size-fits-all solutions from above not only fails but generates a new set of "crises" and abuses.
Try to halt violence by restricting gun ownership and you won't halt violence. But you will create entire classes of new criminals -- people who make paperwork errors, violate technical specifications of law, or rebel against the new restrictions. And you'll create new bureaus, new enforcement arms, new prisons to punish them. You'll make hordes of lawyers and bureaucrats very happy. Organized criminals will be grateful to the naive moral crusaders ("useful idiots") as they profit by selling an illegal product. And ordinary street criminals will bless fools, legislators, and "leaders" for making their job so much safer.
Look around the world. In the UK, criminal use of handguns increased 40 percent in the three years after that country decreed a near-total ban on those weapons. Between March 1999 and March 2000 alone, crimes committed in Britain with handguns rose by nearly one-third. These are handguns that, according to the law of wishful thinking, don't exist. A similar ban enacted in Australia resulted in a 3.2 percent increase in homicides, 8.6 percent more assaults (especially on the elderly), and an astonishing 45 percent increase in burglaries, with the undefended elderly once again the prime victims.
"Gun-control" advocates scoff when we call their aim "victim disarmament." But unlike their "gun control" -- which controls nothing except law-abiding people -- victim disarmament is an accurate term. Deadly reality demonstrates that when the Schumers of the world say they want our guns, what they're really saying is, "We don't care if some woman gets raped. We don't care if old folks are helpless in their own homes. We don't care if children die from pitchfork-wielding madmen because we've prevented children from accessing guns. We just care about having control."
If your goal is gang violence and the deaths of women, the elderly, and the helpless, get in line behind Chuck Schumer, Abraham Foxman, and the god Anubis on the road to death.
Today's "reasonable gun-control" becomes tomorrow's catastrophic failure. But the answer, for those who love control, is never to say, "That didn't work; let's get rid of it." Instead, when one restriction on firearms possession doesn't miraculously end all violence, proponents cry for another and yet another. The result is an endless escalation. True believers demand ever-greater harshness in enforcement and seethe with ever-greater desire to punish those who break the burgeoning laws. Sometimes, as their desperation mounts, they merely strike out against conveniently identified "troublemakers."
Jewish leaders forget that, once this kind of mindless spiral of blame and punishment seizes a society, the Jews often become its victims.
