I don't know of a regular practices of disarming citizens made by those dictators. Hitler certainly wouldn't disarm Germans (in fact, he armed them). Of course, Hitler did disarm the Jews, and many others, of everything, including their lives. Did Stalin institute a campaign of gun prohibition?

Mao disarmed those with firearms? I'm not sure that there was a significant gun ownership population in the first place in China in the 1940s-1970s. If anything, it would have been the wealthy that had such technology. And the wealthy were pretty much beaten down in China, not because they had guns, though.
