Interesting Lesson from the Armenian Genocide

David Kopel has a history lesson that most certainly will never cross the minds of any of those who want to vote on the Armenian Genocide resolution.
As a first step, Armenian soldiers in the Ottoman army were stripped of their weapons. Beaten and clubbed, placed on short rations, and sometimes murdered, they were used to dig fortifications and latrines for the Turks. Soldiers fled and returned home, bringing stories of the destruction of Armenian villages and towns, murders of priests, and rapes of women.

Disarmament orders were sent to Armenian towns; however, Armenian leaders would collect broken and useless weapons, and, with a bribe, deliver them to Turkish leaders — while keeping the functioning weapons for themselves.
Disarmament by those leading you should trigger very LOUD alarms.
