Because a gullible populace allowed them to. Governments only restrict weapons to prevent the populace from fighting back to tyranny.

Fair, but was there a precedent set or was it just a power grab?

You have two of the worst wars the world has ever seen and you get a populace that wants peace at any cost.

Almost all government regulation is a power grab, precedence is not relevant.

Because humans are generally sufficiently short sighted such that if they're not actively involved in the violent overthrow of their government, they fail to see the importance of having firearms. Sprinkle in any kind of division whether political, ethnic, socio-economic, whatever, and you can get one or both/all sides to sufficiently distrust the other that they WANT them disarmed.

it was part of the plan which you are seeing reaching its end state. total control of the day to day lives of the common man, replacement of free thinkers with uneducated masses, and finally destabilization of the region. it will end with a (((totalitarian))) regime controlling everything. just like it was meant to.
