I've been less than kind to the French at times - didn't know this until today.

'Surrender Your Firearms Within 24 Hours or Be Shot'

One of the most startling facts in the book is in the last chapter entitled "Liberation":

"There were three million hunting guns in France in 1939, according to the Saint-Hubert-Club de France, a hunting association."
...only 835,000 of three million hunting guns --less than one-third--were turned in by French citizens threatened with the death penalty for not doing so. That is an incredible testament to the inefficacy of gun control in the most extreme circumstances.

It is also a testament to the bravery of the French people who did not turn their guns in; some of those guns contributed to the Resistance and helped the Allies to win the war. "..[T]he only armed resistance in France until D-Day was conducted by civilians..."

OF course the Nazis wanted "sensible" gun control....
