Ben Carson links gun control to the Holocaust

Republican candidate Ben Carson recently asserted that if guns had not been confiscated from Jewish citizens, then Hitler would have had more trouble orchestrating the Holocaust.

"The likelihood of Hitler being able to accomplish his goals would have been greatly diminished if the people had been armed," he told CNN on Thursday.

Jonathan Greenblatt, the National Director of the Anti-Defamation Leauge, quickly objected, stating that there were few firearms available to Jewish people in Germany in 1938 and that surrendering them did not measurably contribute to the totalitarian power of the Nazi German state.
