In 1959 I worked with a Jewish man who had a serial number on his forearm, he told me that the Nazi's killed his wife and two children,he was able to escape. I visited the Holocoust Museum in D.C. it is a part of history that should be taught in history classes.

Maybe gun control legislation would be more effective if directed toward governments rather than individuals.

I pray Americans keep this in mind and the country of Israel in these modern times.
