WASHINGTON, D.C. (CBS Washington) — A gun company advertisement that warns of impending gun control compares President Obama to Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin.

The USAAmmo ad shows side-by-side pictures of Obama with Hitler, Stalin and other dictators who committed atrocities across the world. The ad, which is also accompanied by a video, warns that gun control is imminent and foreshadows that the U.S. could face millions in casualties if they are not allowed to defend themselves.

USAAmmo states that “tyranny is knocking down the doors of American cities daily” and that Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and other gun control advocates “are secretly conspiring American Citizens of the right to bear arms.”

Trace Williams, director of operations for USAAmmo, defended the ad that was emailed Monday. He told CBS Washington that “Obama and his various czars are infringing on the rights of Americans to own guns.”

“He’s anti-gun and he’s obviously a socialist cramming health care down American’s throats,” Williams said. “That is exactly how those people in that ad rose to power.”

Williams told CBS Washington that he doesn’t regret comparing Obama to those dictators and that his company has received “unbelievable support” since the ad was put out.

“Just look at history. Obama’s socialist agenda is geared toward depriving American citizens of their God-given rights.” He also added that sales have gone “through the roof.”

Obama promised stricter gun control laws following the January Tucson shooting where Rep. Gabby Giffords was seriously injured and six others were killed.

CBS Washington has reached out to the White House for comment.

I just really worry that the people of our country wake up before this next election... i just really wish we had another candidate who I feel would actually be a GOOD leader...

All of the guys pictured do have one thing (at least) in common. They all believe that government knows what's best for you.

Okay, I'll bite if nobody else will. This goes too far and is in poor taste. I don't say this in defense of Obama, I say it in defense of those who died at the hands of the dictators in the photo. To compare a duly elected president of the United States, no matter how we dislike his policies, to genocidal butchers is just beyond the pale of intelligent discourse. I will not patronize the company in question.

I was hesitant to even respond to this post, but I'm with you JPH. No matter how much you may disagree with the President and his policies, comparing him to those butchers is beyond me. Really.

“Just look at history. Obama’s socialist agenda is geared toward depriving American citizens of their God-given rights.” He also added that sales have gone “through the roof.” Then I guess he wouln't miss my business either. I wouln't support either one.
