Despite Holder claiming to have only recently learned about Fast and Furious, BigGovernment.com found a 2009 speech wherein Holder bragged about Gunrunner.
We also must ask: Did any political operatives calling for gun control know the ATF had caused these gun crimes? And did the president or anybody else in the White House know about this?
Anti-gun Democratic congressmen and liberal politicos have been citing U.S. guns showing up in Mexico and Southwestern states as proof that America needs new gun control laws.
In the aftermath of Gunrunner, they're shamelessly adding the solution is to give the ATF new gun control powers.
After the tragic Tucson, Ariz., shooting, Obama told anti-gun activists that his team was working on gun control behind the scenes.

Well the German people was very armed before Hitler. 6 months after Hitler came into power, a lot of guns had been given up. Nazism, the second amendment, and the NRA
And people gave up their guns during Katrina very easily. They will do so again.
And just a note, during WW2, when the Nazis invaded Norway, they obtained a list of who had guns in the country... the SS went around Norway to gather all the guns, whoever was on the list and didn't have the gun was executed on the spot.
