Three years ago, Holocaust survivor Katie Worthman delivered an impassioned speech about Nazi gun control, and given President Barack Obama’s recent push to jam more gun regulations down our throats, it seems a better time than ever to revisit her words.
“In 1938, the media reported that Hitler rode into Austria with tanks and guns and took us over,” Worthman’s speech began. “Not true at all.”
In reality, the Austrian people themselves elected Adolf Hitler to power via the ballot box. Why though would they throw their support behind such a wicked man?
“The truth is at the beginning Hitler didn’t look like or talk like a monster at all,” the Holocaust survivor explained. “He talked like an American politician.”
He in fact talked a whole lot like Obama, in that he pushed for more gun control to reduce crime, though not surprisingly, the plan produced the very opposite effect.
“We had criminals again, and the only way that we can trace the criminal was by the serial number of the gun, so we dutifully went to the police station and we registered our guns,” she continued.
“Not long after they said, ‘No, it didn’t help. The only way that we won’t have accidents and crimes (is) you bring the guns to the police station and then we don’t have any crimes anymore and any accidents. And if you don’t do that: capital punishment.”
Little by little, Hitler’s seemingly benign and well-meaning rules and regulations began to transform into the strict mandates of a dictatorship. According to Worthman, it took five years for the transformation to be complete. Then, it was too late.
“When the people fear the government, that’s tyranny, but when the government fears the people, that’s liberty,” ” she concluded. “Keep your guns. Keep your guns and buy more guns.”
Truer words have never been spoken.
