Disarming Innocent People Does Not Protect Innocent People
By Douglas V. Gibbs
One of the first things Hitler did once he came to power was to require that all firearms be registered. Once the firearms were registered, that meant the government knew where all the guns were, and then the Nazis proceeded to confiscate all of the weapons. This was nothing new. History shows that whenever a tyrannical system takes over a country, it accompanies the disarming of the general public.

26 July 2012, The Advertiser (Lafayette, IN), “Community Voices,” pg. 4B, col. 1:
Melissa Overstreet Cormier: NO. Disarming innocent people does not protect innocent people. Criminals are breaking the law, therefore more laws will not prevent them from committing crimes!

25 January 2013, MX (Melbourne, Victoria), “Passion here, rude there,” pg. 18:
NO CONTROL: To MorePerspective (mX, Wed) venting about gun control, disarming innocent people does not protect innocent people.

10 January 2016, Journal & Courier (Lafayette, IN), “About gun regulation, more or less” by Dave Bangert, pg. A8, col. 2:
Disarming innocent people does not protect innocent people.

Hartford — They sported shirts and signs with messages like, “If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns,” “I am not a criminal” and “You are not for women’s rights when you want to strip them of their right to self-defense.”
(...)
Farmington sisters Leahna, Preeya and Sabrina Diana, all teenagers, were at the rally holding up a sign reading, “Disarming innocent people does not protect innocent people like me.”

Only a Democrat would think that disarming innocent people somehow protects innocent people.
