TOLEDO, Ohio – A new campaign video for a Republican congressional candidate implies that German gun controls contributed to deaths during the Holocaust because people didn’t have firearms to defend themselves.

[...] In the video, Samuel Wurzelbacher loads a shotgun and fires at pieces of fruit placed on wooden posts. “In 1939, Germany established gun control,” he says. “From 1939 to 1945, six million Jews and seven million others, unable to defend themselves, were exterminated.” He ends the video by saying, “I love America.”
