“We know that the national debate over gun control is one of the most  divisive issues in the land, and while Americans are entitled to have  strong opinions, there is also language that is inappropriate and  offensive in any such discussion. The idea that supporters of gun  control are doing something akin to what Hitler’s Germany did to strip  citizens of guns in the run-up to the Second World War is historically  inaccurate and offensive, especially to Holocaust survivors and their  families.” – Anti-Defamation League president Abraham Foxman,

*The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is an international non-governmental organization that descibes itself as “the nation’s premier civil rights/human relations agency”, the ADL states that it “fights anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry, defends democratic ideals and protects civil rights for all,” doing so through “information, education, legislation, and advocacy.”
