ADL: Gun Control ≠ Hitler

"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, responding to right-wing claims such as those made by closeted homosexual Matt Drudge, who recently posted photos of Hitler and Stalin to illustrate a story about President Obama's executive orders on gun control.
