There’s been a great deal of discussion about gun rights, gun confiscation, gun free zones, and the most controversial, if Jews had been armed in Germany during the Nazi Party’s rise to power, would it have made a difference?
Dr. Ben Carson wrote in his new book A Perfect Union, “Through a combination of removing guns and disseminating propaganda, the Nazis were able to carry out their evil intentions with relatively little resistance.”
The usual suspects denounced Carson, including the folks at the Anti-Defamation League.
In fact, the ADL actually made the case for Carson when National Director Jonathan Greenblatt said, “The small number of personal firearms available to Germany’s Jews in 1938 could in no way have stopped the totalitarian power of the Nazi German state.”
Notice that Dr. Carson did not say that Hitler would not have attempted to eliminate the Jews if the Jews had been armed, as some news outlets have claimed.
