John Yarmuth, <a href="http://wfpl.org/post/whass-mandy-connell-gun-registration-why-don-t-we-make-them-wear-yellow-stars">Connell said Second Amendment advocates should be concerned about further regulations</a>.</p><p>The radio show host added citizens should be worried about an "overly intrusive government" similar to Nazi Germany.</p><p>"Things like (U.S. Sen.) Diane Feinstein requiring gun owners to register if they’re already a legal gun owner," Connell said. "Why don’t we make them <a href="http://www.bl.uk/learning/histcitizen/voices/info/yellowstar/theyellowstar.html">wear yellow stars</a> as well? Why don’t we tag everybody?"</p><p>In response, an ADL spokeswoman told <em>LEO Weekly</em> the comments trivialized the Holocaust.</p><p> Mon, 14 Jan 2013 21:18:32 +0000 Phillip M.
