    didn't allow the Jews to have.  The Nazis' also took their bikes and cars and property.  The Jews were not allowed to teach at the University or attend school.  They "herded," the Jewish people by passing laws that isolated them.  The Nazis destroyed their shops, synagogues and arrested them by the thousands.  The Jews were isolated by hate, hate speech, and herded by a powerful military with machine guns.  There were partisan groups that had weapons and fought back, but it took the military of other countries to bring down the Nazis'.

    I lost family in the Holocaust.  It didn't happen just because of gun control, it happen because of hate filled rhetoric and actions directly against not only the Jews, but socialists, gays, Gypsies.  Gun control doesn't always mean geocide there are other elements that creates a geocide.

      Enabling Act 1933 purges trade unions
      Night Of The Long Knives 1934 Purged Nazi socialists
      Nuremberg Laws 1936 Banned employment and intermarriage of Jews

      Germany was years deep into domestic terror by 1938.
