Probably most Franklin County citizens generally agree with Sheriff Gary Toelke’s position on gun controls. His views were published in a front page story in Wednesday’s Missourian.

He’s on target in saying that it is unlikely there will be any legislation demanding confiscation of weapons from law-abiding citizens. It’s not going to happen. But, unfortunately, some people have a fear that it will happen. The most often response from them on this subject is that it happened in Nazi Germany. There were entirely different circumstances in Germany and to make that comparison just isn’t live ammunition in this debate. Germany had a dictator government to begin with. It did not have an effective legislative body. We have Congress whose members would never agree to confiscate guns from law-abiding citizens. It’s a constitutional issue.
