Mao made this statement in 1927 after a number of his comrades were slaughtered by KMT.

That is the one, and it is miss-quoted because it was not the barrel of his gun, but the western propaganda machine uses this as a means to other ends when the Communists were murdered in 1927. You go to the top of the class.
