“Innocents Betrayed – The History Of Gun Control

This documentary chronicles the history of tyrants in the 20th century. It shows how they first disarmed population after population before they killed hundreds of millions of people. It is the threat of just this that was behind our founding fathers. They did everything they could to ensure that these things didn’t happen in the United States.

But they have happened here. And they will happen again if we allow it. It is up to each generation to do their part to prevent it.

    I am trying hard to find references on each of the events described in this video. Though it is obvious that the victims mentioned were defenseless (unarmed) at the time of their persecution or death I am having difficulty finding a gun control measure that disarmed them. Well except for gun forums contain no historical example. I have no doubt the Ukrainians were starved to death but cannot prove that they were disarmed at the time or if having arms would have saved them. Do you guys have any specific references?

      my father was a survivor of the Armenian Genocide. He said that the Armenians were disarmed, the men were killed and then the women and children starved (and multilated and raped and put into harems, islamicized etc.)

    I have a decent handle on the Armenian genocide as I discussed it with an Armenian in 1970.

    I’ll get you some links tonight, Tony. Also, I’ll see if Uke can offer some insight since some of his family were victims.

      March 17, 1917 (March 4, 1917 old style date – changed from Julian to Gregorian calendar)
      Ukrainian nationalists respond to the political upheaval in Russia and form the Central Rada, or the Central Council. The Central Rada will issue their First Universal

      ^^^Ukrainians^^^ piss off the future rulers of Russia^^^

      Good historical reference:

      Still working on the actual date of disarmament. Getting there…

      Another great resource:

        Interestingly, the Hitler quote we see so often, never actually happened. Here’s one of the only times Hitler is known to have spoken on the merits of gun control:

        “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to permit the conquered Eastern peoples to have arms. History teaches that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so.”

        National Gun Registration was enacted in Germany in 1928. Hitler did outlaw Jews owning guns but the country was firmly in his grasp by the time of passage of the Weapons Law of March 18, 1938.

        Stalinist gun control:

        Resolutions, 1918 Decree, July 12, 1920 Articles 59 & 182, Penal code, 1926.

        The USSR just wanted the land. They hated the Ukrainians, who didn’t like them either. The soviets needed money for industrialization so they sold all of the Ukrainian crops to the west, and starved the Ukrainian people to death.

        Freaking animals, the soviets were!
