  •  Not terribly effective Gun Control, actually... (0+ / 0-)

    The Jews that decided to fight back (i.e. the Ghetto uprisings, the Jewish partisans, etc.) did manage to acquire weapons.  Granted not of the caliber possessed by their oppressors.  But even in a open market for guns, that would still have been the case.

    The real problem was that fighting back meant you would get slaughtered, so most only did fight when it became absolutely clear that they would be slaughtered regardless.  Those that resisted from the beginning did so for political reasons (i.e. they were aligned with the Communists).  And as a well organized resistance movement, they had little trouble finding guns.
