France, the Nazis, and Gun Control

History has shown what happens as soon as the guns are confiscated.
Here is an article that recounts what France endured after the gungrabbers made their move in 1935:

In 1935, French prime minister Pierre Laval, who later served in the Vichy government during the Nazis' four-year occupation of France, commanded French citizens to surrender their firearms.  Laval and France's ruling parties feared social revolution and banned "war" weapons, instituting strict gun registration policies.  They believed that repressive limits on civilian gun ownership were necessary at a time of Depression-sparked unrest and ongoing conflicts among various political factions.  Strict time limits for firearms registration and harsh penalties for noncompliance, including forfeiture, fines, and imprisonment, were put in place.  Laval's government did not foresee the impact these restrictive measures would have on a Nazi-conquered France just five years later, when firearms surrender would be required under threat of death

Nice, one of the big problems

Nice, one of the big problems the Allied had supporting the French resistance was the need to provide small arms and ammo, which shouldn't have been necessary.

It would be interesting to

It would be interesting to see the results if we were to carry out a scattered air drop of half a million AR/15s along with 100 million 5.56 cartridges into Venezuela some day.

Two points:

Two points:
First the events in France were significantly influenced by WW I which had been over a short 17 years.
The political and social economic factors resulting from that are easy to be underestimated. As with other countries
the primary focus was on preventing another war.

Second , while an appealing idea the drop idea would more than likely result in sales of them for toilet paper before much else.

There's always an excuse for

There's always an excuse for taking away one of the most effective ways of protecting one's self and family.
Usually it's "for your own good".

Only the ones full of it would be stupid enough to give away their best bet at overthrowing the regime now in power for TP.
