ON GUNS, MUCH OF THE RIGHT IS JUST AS STUPID AS JOE THE PLUMBER
Samuel "Joe the Plumber" Wurzelbacher, now running for Congress, is being mocked for a campaign ad in which he blames the Holocaust on gun control:
This is not a silly, cockamamie notion that would occur only to a pathetic grifter like Joe the Plumber -- it's a silly, cockamamie notion that has been advanced in all seriousness by the still-deemed-respectable National Review, by Ph.D. and alleged serious scholar John Lott, by the feared lobbying outfit Gun Owners of America, and by this sheepskin-wielder, writing for the Arizona Journal of International and Comparative Law (I'll leave it to you to decide how respectable that publication is).
It is regularly stated -- probably in your local paper's letters column at one time or another -- that one or another of America's gun control laws is a word-for-word translation of Nazi gun control laws; (see, e.g., this and this and this and this).
The notion that gun control is neo-Nazism has been pushed most vehemently by a group called Jews for the Preservation of Firearm Ownership, which sells items such as this:
This craziness has been out there forever. If the media finally notices it because it came from Wurzelbacher, maybe the media should have been paying attention all these years.
(The Straight Dope does a good job of debunking this nonsense here.)
