Nice way to argue without addressing any of my points
You made your point saying that gun control is the only thing that allowed Stalin and Hitler to rise to power. I refuted your point, the communist revolution had the support of the people and Hitler got elected into power. Guns or not guns, having a smart society is the best way to prevent dictatorships from rising into power.
Tell that to the Taliban.
I think I'm gonna stop to try telling you the difference between total and limited wars. The US havent been into a total war ever since WW2. Every war they made since was limited. I doubt any country or resistance could survive a total war from America aka using nukes and everything they got.
