    The latest NBC News-Wall Street Journal survey finds that 89 percent of Americans favor expanded background checks for gun purchasers; 76 percent support "red flag" laws to identify dangerous persons and deny them guns, and 75 percent favor a voluntary buyback program in which the government would purchase firearms from current owners. Sixty-two percent of Americans favor a ban on the sale of semi-automatic weapons.

    Forget about the Nazis. Look to much more recent failings to see what may affect the US.

    That same 90% number has been thrown around for decades.
    If 90% of Americans want something, it will happen.
    it DOES NOT HAPPEN because that number is a lie.
    90% of Americans DO NOT WANT draconian laws like that one, as written.

    A big lie repeated over and over, but we are too smart for them and see it as such.
