The Armenian Genocide and Gun Control

--A Brief--
Humanity can always learn for history, for history always tend to repeat its self. One of the most vital rights an individual of any and every nation is entitled to is the right to bear arms. The founding fathers of the United States understood this fact very well. From their expense in dealing with the British Empire they realized that more government means less liberty and the primary method in which the people can keep the government in check as well as protecting individual liberties is by insuring Americans of all generations with the right to bear arms. Unfoundedly not every county is blessed with the rights that are insured to Americans through a constitution or an order of law. Governments who advocate and achieve gun control predominantly result in limited many other liberties and rights that the people are entitled to.
--The Armenian Genocide--
The Armenian Genocide is the prominent example of what can occur when a government decides to implement "gun control" laws, in the 20th century. The Armenian nation was a member of the Turkish Ottoman Empire. There were an estimate of 2,ooo,ooo Armenians living in the Turkish Ottoman Empire. After the fall of the sultan and the rise of Turkish chauvinism under the three Young Turks in the 1900s, the right to bear any arms was slowly limited. This did not affect Turks, Kurds, nor any other Muslims during the time. The ability to protect oneself was taken away from the Armenian people. In the coming years massacres of the Christian Armenian minority would continue. Unarmed, the Armenians would suffer the first genocide of the 20th century.
---The Main message---
The main message humanity can obtain from the Armenian Genocide and Gun Control is, people of all nations should never divulge their rights and means to protecting themselves and their personal prosperity to their governments. They should always be armed, ready, and able to protect their individual liberties, for every person has the right to, as Thomas Jefferson said, “life, liberty, and the pursuit to happiness.” Giving up ones ability to protect oneself from the government is the same as signing a death warrant to the government.
The lessons that were lost during the Armenian Genocide occurred again during the Jewish Holocaust, in Nazi Germany.


Gun Quotations


"No free man shall ever be de-barred the use
of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain their right to
keep and bear arms is as a last resort to protect themselves against
tyranny in government."

--Thomas Jefferson

"Americans have the right and advantage of being armed - unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms."

-- James Madison, The Federalist Papers

“When fire arms go we go, we need fire arms at all times.”

--George Washington

"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. "

-- Adolph Hitler, April 11 1942.
