Ben Carson repeated the myth that Hitler implemented strict gun control to leave the German people defenseless. Ben's theory was that the Jews could have defended themselves if they only has access to guns. This angered comedian Seth ((( Rogen ))) who tweeted "Fuck You" to Carson.
Like so many things about National Socialist Germany, this was a lie - an inversion of truth. In reality strict German gun control was passed in 1928 under a leftist government. The National Socialists were not in power at that time. Hitler was elected in 1933. Five years later in 1938, the National Socialists relaxed the gun control laws. Under Hitler, all Germans (including Jews) were allowed to own rifles. Handguns were also available with a permit. The only class of people excluded from gun ownership were the vagabonds and gypsies.
In another tweet, Rogen, a high-profile Hillary Clinton supporter (and Canadian citizen), expressed his anger over comments Carson made about gun control and Nazi Germany.
