Washington - Continuing the controversial stance he has taken on gun control, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson is now suggesting that the number of Jewish Holocaust victims may have been lessened if the Jewish prisoners had been armed with weapons.

According to ABC News (http://abcn.ws/1LCpA8I), Carson made his comments during on an interview on CNN where he was asked about statements in his book, “A Perfect Union,” wherein he writes “through a combination of removing guns and disseminating propaganda, the Nazis were able to carry out their evil intentions with relatively little resistance.”

A CNN reporter asked him to clarify his remarks, saying, “But to just to clarify, if there had been no gun control laws in Europe at that time, would 6 million Jews have been slaughtered?” to which Carson responded, “I think the likelihood of Hitler being able to accomplish his goals would have been greatly diminished if the people had been armed. I’m telling you there is a reason these dictatorial people take guns first.”

Calling his comments “historically inaccurate,” the Anti-Defamation League was quick to condemn Carson. “Ben Carson has a right to his views on gun control, but the notion that Hitler’s gun control policy contributed to the Holocaust is historically inaccurate,” said National Director Jonathan Greenblatt. “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.”

This ignorant bum has trivialized the 6 million martyrs and turned their suffering into a random campaign issue. As attested to by all the street violence in Germany between 1919-1933, guns were readily available. And from 1933-1945, every thug in the 3rd reich could get a gun. His ridiculous assertion that Americans need to be armed to the teeth to prevent a Holocaust here is grounds for his being kicked out as a serious candidate.

I disagree. Imagine trying to round up all Texans to send them to the gas chamber. It would be quite a feat, considering most of them are armed to the hilt.

There is NOTHING wrong with his point. If you have an issue with it, READ IT SLOWER!!!


In essence he is saying that if people in Germany didn't have their guns confiscated, perhaps as hitler yemach sh'mo was gaining power the people could have used those guns to rise up against the regime.

NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT!!!

you are missing the point and he is not a bum .. He is a very good man and you should really apologize. He is G-d fearing and a good person.
He is really issuing a warning that you do not seem to understand.
If the Momzer keeps at this gun control what's to stop another hitler?
You might think ..oye here goes another nut..........but that's what they said 70 years ago. Keeping your head in the sand does not prevent hitlers from rising. Of course I realize that Hashem is in charge and we live with emunah and bitachon always and I also know that one must "tracht gut" at all times, yet we must also be aware of what is happening around us and act accordingly.

I guess you are another kool aid drinker - yes, it's true that every thug had guns in nazi germany - but the yiddlach did not -
it just was not our way.
I am not so sure that the thugs who had the guns were not supplied by the hitlers of that generation..

good point.
Ben Carson is a good guy and I would love to see him in the white house.
He might not know everything there is to know to be president BUT he is clever enough to surround himself with the brightest and sharpest.
He is a doctor and doctors know to consult - it's ingrained in them.
they know they can't know about every field so they consult with specialists in other fields - The drek we have now believes he knows it all and there aint nobody gonna tell him what to do nor does he have to 'aks' anyone anything. He does not believe there are any 'folks' that know anything better than he does.

Texans with guns or let say Californians with no guns. Texans will be dead in less than a day. Californians will negotiate for 6 months or more.

Greenblatt and his predecessor, Foxman, have been shills for the Democrats for many years. Believe me, they wouldn't scrutinize one of their party in the same way.

That presupposes that the Texans, Georgians and other Red State citizens who compose the overwhelming majority of the armed forces would actually obey an order to fire on their brothers and sisters. On the other hand, most of them would have little compunction, if any, for blowing the entire state of California away.

P.S. Note that armed supporters of Cliven Bundy backed down the US Dept of the Interior, federal marshals and the Sheriffs Dept.

It is a widespread myth that Jews in the Holocaust were passive, they were actually more active than any other conquered people. In 1942-43, Jews constituted half of all the partisans in Poland. Overall, about thirty thousand Jewish partisans fought in Eastern Europe. There were armed revolts in over forty different ghettos, mostly in Eastern Poland.
In other parts of Europe, Jews likewise joined the resistance at much higher rates than the rest of the population. Unlike in Eastern Europe, though, Jews were generally able to participate as individuals in the national resistance, rather than having to fight in separate units.
For example, in France, Jews amounted to than one percent of French population, but comprised about 15-20 percent of the French Resistance.

You're a disgusting racist who is only targeting Dr. Carson because he's black! And you only support Obama because he's half white! Sound familiar? Lol

It took 7 years of the Combined Army's of the USA, Russia etc with thousands of Fighter Planes, Tens of thousand of Tanks and Millions of Well armed Soldiers to stop Hitler. This Meshugeneh Antisemite claims that we Yidden spread over dozens of countries could have saved ourselves with some guns.

CARSON is SO SO SO right.
I am a child of survivors.
The survivors were ridiculed after the war; why they went like sheep to their slaughter?
Their only answer was " WE HAD NO ARMS".
Hitler used minimal manpower to subdue millions; just because he knew that there can not be resistance without arms in the hand of the Jews.
In fact, those Jews who had arms joined the partisans and did in fact slow Hitler down, and were instrumental in the defeat of Hitler.
Arms were dropped to the partisans in the woods; but not to the Jews in the ghettos or before.
