Genocide and Gun Control- Brothers

If self-defense is illegal, genocide is possible. Taking away all citizens guns is a bad sign of things to come. History repeats itself. If the world took notice of the events depicted in this video of 1915 Armenian and Turkish history, Hitler probably would not have been so confident in his plan, "The Final Solution".

Text with video:
The Armenian Genocide or the Armenian Massacre — refers to the massacres and forcible removals of hundreds of thousands to over a million Armenians, during the government of the Young Turks from 1915 to 1917 in the Ottoman Empire.

Even today, the Republic of Turkey rejects the notion that the event constitutes genocide, claiming rather that the Armenian deaths were a result of inter-ethnic strife, disease and famine during the turmoil of World War I.

However, most Armenian, Russian, Western, and an increasing number of Turkish, scholars believe that it was indeed the first genocide of the 20th century, or a campaign of state-sponsored ethnic cleansing and mass extermination.

For example, some Western sources point to the sheer scale of the death toll as evidence for a systematic, organized plan to eliminate the Armenians. The event is also said to be the second-most studied case of genocide,[3] and often draws comparison with the Holocaust. As discussed below, to date twenty-one countries have officially recognized it as genocide.

One of the world's oldest
civilizations, Armenia once included Mount Ararat, which Biblical tradition identifies as the mountain that Noah's ark rested on after the flood. It was the first country in the world to officially embrace Christianity as its religion (c. 301).
