Firearms wouldn’t have hurt the Jews in Germany and Poland in the 30s/40s, either. I don’t get Alan’s incredibly short-sighted thinking.

Exactly. One of the first things I bring up with my Jewish lib friends when the issue of gun control comes up is this: "You admire the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, right? Well, what allowed that to happen? Indeed...a few Polish rifles and some handguns smuggled in through the sewers. It's hard to be a hero in that situation without a gun: all you can be is a victim."

It makes most of them stop and think...at least for a millisecond.
