The Washington Post had a fawning story on Ernst Mauch and his Armatrix iP1 on Wednesday. Pretty much it said if it wasn’t for those damn Second Amendment types we’d have “safer” (sic) guns.
In his post about this story, Mike Vanderboegh. never one to mince words, had this wonderful headline:
From the land of great ideas and engineering (You know, the folks who brought us Zyklon B). When some German starts talking about how Americans “must” do something, I get nervous.
To refresh your memory, Zyklon B. was a cyanide-based pesticide developed by German chemical conglomerate IG Farben in the 1920s. It was used with ruthless efficiency in the 1940s to kill about 1.2 million “enemies of the Reich” at the Auschwitz and Majdanek death camps.
