How the Nazis Used Gun Control
By Stephen P. Halbrook

The perennial gun-control debate in America did not begin here. The same arguments for and against were made in the 1920s in the chaos of Germany’s Weimar Republic, which opted for gun registration. Law-abiding persons complied with the law, but the Communists and Nazis committing acts of political violence did not.

In 1931, Weimar authorities discovered plans for a Nazi takeover in which Jews would be denied food and persons refusing to surrender their guns within 24 hours would be executed. They were written by Werner Best, a future Gestapo official. In reaction to such threats, the government authorized the registration of all firearms and the confiscation thereof, if required for “public safety.” The interior minister warned that the records must not fall into the hands of any extremist group.

In 1933, the ultimate extremist group, led by Adolf Hitler, seized power and used the records to identify, disarm, and attack political opponents and Jews. Constitutional rights were suspended, and mass searches for and seizures of guns and dissident publications ensued. Police revoked gun licenses of Social Democrats and others who were not “politically reliable.”

During the five years of repression that followed, society was “cleansed” by the National Socialist regime.

The problem with public education is that children are taught what the government wants them to be taught.

When I was in school we had to read Animal Farm and 1984, no one is required to read those anymore. We were also required, by parents, to have some sort of a plan and get with it when we turned legal age; you sank or swam on your own. Now you can live at home, have mom and dad pay for everything until you are in your 30s. You are not responsible for your own well being etc. and you get to be offended by anything anyone says.

Again, when I was a kid, the only people getting trophies just for showing up to an event were participants in the special Olympics; that model has expanded to all children.

So, you are taught what the government wants you to learn in school, your opinions are crafted by government. You are taught that you are great at everything even when you suck. You are encouraged to take offense at everything and report everything you don't like to authorities, like school administration.

Why is anyone with a functioning brain even slightly confused about why history, not just gun control, but all of it, is being repeated?
The two enemies of the people are criminals and govt, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legaliszed version of the first.
