Welcome to Your Mass Shooting of the Day

9 Oct

So – we had a shooting last week in Oregon, and today we had one in Arizona and another in Texas.

And Ben Carson, after claiming armed teachers could have stopped the Umpqua gunman, now claims that more guns in Germany would have prevented the Holocaust. I have great respect for Dr Carson as a physician, but as a historian or a presidential candidate, he’s a hopeless case.

In the time period leading up to Krystal Nacht, the legal age for purchasing guns was lowered from 21 to 18, and they were easily available to both Jew and Aryan. The idea was that Jews were vastly outnumbered by gentiles, so if they were set upon and tried to defend themselves, they could then be shot “in self-defence” by the Aryans.

Pathetic. Just pathetic.
