Interesting observation on comments below article:

A message from a woman who was a citizen of Austria when Hitler was voted in as their ruler...... �Next came gun registration. People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law-abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long afterwards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily. �No more freedom of speech. Anyone who said something against the government was taken away. We knew many people who were arrested, not only Jews, but also priests and ministers who spoke up. �Totalitarianism didn�t come quickly, it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943, to realize full dictatorship in Austria. Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would have fought to the last breath. Instead, we had creeping gradualism. Now, our only weapons were broom handles. The whole idea sounds almost unbelievable that the state, little by little eroded our freedom.� �This is my eyewitness account. �It�s true. Those of us who sailed past the Statue of Liberty came to a country of unbelievable freedom and opportunity. �America is truly is the greatest country in the world. �Don�t let freedom slip away. �After America, there is no place to go.� Kitty Werthmann
