Gun Control & Genocide; A Historical Perspective

This is an article published first in the news...

This is an article published first in the newspaper, New York Times on December 15, 1915. It is on the Armenian Genocide. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Down through history, governments have disarmed their citizens only to tyrannize those citizens once they were disarmed.

One doesn’t have to look too far back either.  Just watch the nightly news to see how the Syrian Gov’t most recently has slaughtered its own people.  Libya did the same not so long ago too.

The following chart documents just a few examples from recent history where “gun control” laws were enacted and then tyranny by the government proceeded.
