But some general issues are discussed first. One useful point is that "gun control" is a slogan and is nonsensical. One does not control a "gun." One controls human beings. Another useful discussion is the efforts of the government to suppress gun ownership by schooling children into hating guns and by doing everything possible to embarrass people who want to purchase a gun. Gun registration and the like have always been preludes to gun confiscation. And gun confiscation has always been a prelude to the oppression of some group of citizens.
The case studies are Cambodia, China, Germany, Rwanda, Turkey, Uganda, The Soviet Union, and Zimbabwe. There is also a chapter on the Catholic Church's opposition to gun ownership. And a chapter on the soaring crime rate since Britain banned guns.
The overwhelming question, of course, is why the United States, which has guaranteed gun ownership in the Constitution, is now moving toward banning guns. This is especially puzzling at a time when Americans are facing the greatest threats in our history. If you don't know this, read While America Sleeps: How Islam, Immigration and Indoctrination Are Destroying America From Within. Americans are going to need those guns because the government is not defending them.
Strangely, many if not most Jews hate guns and are against private gun ownership. They need to read this book. There are only 13 million Jews in the entire world. If so many had not been murdered as a result of lacking the means and the will to defend themselves, it has been estimated there would be at least 200 million.
I am not Jewish. But I think Jews are good for the world. I want there to be more of them. And if more of them would read this book and take Mr. Zelman's wisdom into their hearts, then not only their attitudes would be changed but also others. After all, Jews are intellectually influential.
If attitudes were thus changed there would be more guns in the private hands of law-abiding citizens. And that would be good for Jews, and everybody else.
We learned about many of these cases of genocide in school, watched it on the news and saw the graphic photos in various publications. What those sources DIDN'T tell us is that it all started with disarming the victims - the beginning of which was often well-intended "reasonable" gun control.
This is a "must read." Especially for those who think strict gun control equals public safety.
The gun control genocide chart(plus the type of victims and numbers).
The effects and mentality of gun control laws.
How gun bans led to mega-murder in Cambodia,China,Guatemala,Rwanda,Ottoman Turkey,Nazi Germany and the USSR.Plus invasions and confiscations in Zimbabwe and Great Britain.
We even learn this is not limited to other countries.African and Native Americans had almost been massively killed.Not to mention internment of Japanese Americans during WWII. Ironically,Japan is also mentioned of having a near firearm/sword ban.
After WWII,Senator Dodd copied a dangerous law from Nazi Germany...
Even religion has some basis in self-defense.Judaism and Catholic/Protestant Christianity enforce such arguments.
The plan of the United Nations to disarm civilians worldwide.
Violent police state tactics in Japan and America that condition us to be helpless.
And much more....
