Nazis may have been more powerful with guns, but guns did not make them wiser.

A funny quote but too close to the mark. Arms are part of the Constitution in the U.S. There are those in our present government who hope to turn them to butter. A fatted populace ready for the slaughter.

As long as evil men have access to guns, so shall We The People. No disarmed people have ever been "free".
