a system of licensing and registration is the perfect device to deny gun ownership to the bourgeoisie - Lenin
This quote can be found all over the internet, but I can't find any reliable sources for it.
Two examples for where it's used:
You can google it and will find a lot more usages of the quote, most of them from pro-gun activists. None of the mentions I found have any more information, such as the speech or publication it's from, or the year Lenin supposedly said this.
So my questions are:
- Did Lenin really say this?
- If so, when and where did he say it? I'm assuming after the October Revolution?
- And what's the context for it?
