Back in the 1930s started confiscation of weapons and they used children to do it, just as other tyrannical regimes have done.
They have found it most effective to play on emotions and to keep the people from relying on common sense. Fortunately for Hitler, they had gun registration and when the Nazis took over Germany they were able to identify gun owners who were given 24 hours to turn over their guns and those who didn’t comply were shot down on the spot.
But Hitler saw the value in indoctrinating the children.
“These boys and girls enter our organizations [at] ten years of age, and often for the first time get a little fresh air; after four years of the Young Folk they go on to the Hitler Youth, where we have them for another four years . . . And even if they are still not complete National Socialists, they go to Labor Service and are smoothed out there for another six, seven months . . . And whatever class consciousness or social status might still be left . . . the Wehrmacht [German armed forces] will take care of that.”
—Adolf Hitler (1938)
According to the National Review :
The perennial gun-control debate in America did not begin here. The same arguments for and against were made in the 1920s in the chaos of Germany’s Weimar Republic, which opted for gun registration. Law-abiding persons complied with the law, but the Communists and Nazis committing acts of political violence did not.
In 1931, Weimar authorities discovered plans for a Nazi takeover in which Jews would be denied food and persons refusing to surrender their guns within 24 hours would be executed.
They were written by Werner Best, a future Gestapo official. In reaction to such threats, the government authorized the registration of all firearms and the confiscation thereof, if required for “public safety.” The interior minister warned that the records must not fall into the hands of any extremist group.
In 1933, the ultimate extremist group, led by Adolf Hitler, seized power and used the records to identify, disarm, and attack political opponents and Jews. Constitutional rights were suspended, and mass searches for and seizures of guns and dissident publications ensued.
Police revoked gun licenses of Social Democrats and others who were not “politically reliable.”

When Obama signed Executive Orders on guns, look who he surrounded himself with.
Children make great props and are quick to memorize Democratic talking points on guns.
