Would More Guns Have meant No Hitler?

I keep seeing this claim that banning guns was part of Hitler’s rise to absolute power, and the claim we need freely held and available guns as protector of freedom.  Do the claims make sense?

On the face of it a rebellion against a tyrant is almost certain to be illegal under the laws as created by a tyrant.  It is hard to see how a law against guns is anymore of a barrier than  numerous other restriction on liberty that would be expected under a tyrant.  If an armed rebellion is needed it would seem to me that we’d be outside the structure governed by laws and constitutions in the usual sense  How does gun regulation matter more or less?

Here’s a detailed review on the issue of Nazis and guns.  The claim that Obama is Hitler, as usual, seems silly.
