  2. Correlation may not be causation, but lack of firearms had to be a factor in those wholesale slaughters of population by their own “dear leaders”…at least they could have taken some of their persecutors with them if those populations had not allowed themselves to be disarmed.

  3. I’m totally with you on opposition to gun control, but the Stalin gun ban and Mao gun ban may only be a myth. I’ve tried to find the laws that called for bans and disarmament, and they only come back to JFPO, which didn’t list sources. The first Chinese gun ban that I could find, didn’t go into effect until the 80’s. Perhaps it’s mostly a language barrier issue, but I couldn’t find very much in English.
