Not sure you're using the right analogy in the picture. If I remember my correctly, the wolf actually did come at the end. Perhaps Chicken LIttle might be more appropriate.

Deputy Barney was allowed only one bullet by Sheriff Andy . Apparently the NRA at the time didn't decry his inability to defend himself.

ding dong the NRA is dead.

@dapaPa - and may I add that the only time Barney's weapon was fired was accidentally and, to the best of my memory, always while it was in his holster (as in almost shooting off his foot).

Not to mention that (and as they used the Jack-Booted Thugs I concentrate on the Nazis):

1) the jack-booted thugs / brownshirts of Nazi Germany were a populist result of Hitler organizing / bringing into an umbrella of hatred and vision of a glorious Germany. That is they had a lot more in common with the private gun owners of today than with the govt.

2) Two groups spring to mind that have or have had a strong level of support for the Nazis. One is the power brokers - as examples, Ford had anti-Semite Nazi tracts translated into English; Prescott Bush was caught in money laundering money for the Nazis - like today's laws forbidding money for terrorist organizations it was illegal at the time to give money to Nazis Germany. Even though PB was subsequently a Senator, Hoover held that he was a Nazi (of course the evidence is tainted by Hoover's propensity to sling Commie and Nazi at anyone he didn't like).

The other group is today's White Supremist movement.
