Any movement that had as its goal to control a population for the purpose of remaking that society into a totally different society has confiscated the weapons or guns of the people. The new society desired by the those who are championing change has historically been to change a free society who protects freedom of speech and thought, into a society adhering to only one political thought and eliminating the discourse of any dissenters. This is defined as a tyrannical society under a dictatorial or controlling government.
This is the mindset of the Marxist/Progressive Party (Democrats) in the United States. It is the goal of this group to fundamentally transform the free society of the United States into a totally conforming and totally equal, politically, socially, and economically, society. This has been stated and exhibited in many different ways including the call for the forced confiscation of all weapons of the citizens. Others who have employed this same tactic includes the Nazi party headed by Adolph Hitler. It is ironic that those championing the tactics of Hitler continue to call any who oppose them as Hitler like.
Here are the words of Adolph Hitler and the corresponding words of a Marxist/Progressive who is a member of the United States Congress.
The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Adolph Hitler
Reinstating the federal assault weapons ban that was in effect from 1994 to 2004 would prohibit manufacture and sales, but it would not affect weapons already possessed. This would leave millions of assault weapons in our communities for decades to come.
Instead, we should ban possession of military-style semiautomatic assault weapons, we should buy back such weapons from all who choose to abide by the law, and we should criminally prosecute any who choose to defy it by keeping their weapons. The ban would not apply to law enforcement agencies or shooting clubs. Marxist/Progressive Rep from California Eric Swalwell
