Update on the local news tonight says that the teens had broken into a neighboring house, days earlier, and stole prescription drugs and coins. They were looking for a high but probably not out to hurt anyone.

The Germans didn't just come across them living in the ghetto, and knock on the ghetto door: Hello, ve are ze Nazis. Do you haff any veapons? Nein? Gut. Ve are coming in.

They were disarmed, disenfranchised and rounded up into the ghetto.

Using the Holocaust to back up any side's pro or anti gun argument is at best tasteless and classless.

I think this is where you two differ and it's one which cannot be backed up by stats unoless you agree to get rid of all your guns for a year.

Any comparison to other countries is always going to be flawed.

Ever thought this forum might be a lot less random if any of us actually read the contents of each others posts?

Thanks Haggis. I've been wanting to make some kind of statement like this but I believe you covered it.

I'm amazed that we have 17 pages of discussion/argument based on an incident reported in the 'media' who are generally only marginally more reliable than politician's promises in an election year........
