2nd Amendment - Hitler: Edict of 18Mar1938 (quotes)

"The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subjected people to carry arms.  History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subjected peoples to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.  Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the underdog is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty.  So let's not have any native militia or police." 
– -- Adolph Hitler, Edict of March 18, 1938


translation:
Jews Forbidden to Possess Weapons
By Order of SS Reichsfuhrer Himmler 
Munich, November 19 [1938] 
   The SS Reichsfuhrer and German Police 
Chief has issued the following Order:
    Persons who, according to the Nuremberg 
law, are regarded as Jews, are forbidden 
to possess any weapon.  Violators will be 
condemned to a concentration camp and 
imprisoned for a period of up to 20 years.



     "The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms.  History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.  Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty.  So let's not have any native militia or native police.  German troops alone will bear the sole responsibility for the maintenance of law and order throughout the occupied Russian territories, and a system of military strong-points must be evolved to cover the entire occupied country."

Hitler was a Leftist
 Nazi Gun Control



Nazi Weapons Act of 1938 (Translated to English)
  • Classified guns for "sporting purposes".
  • All citizens who wished to purchase firearms had to register with the Nazi officials and have a background check.
  • Presumed German citizens were hostile and thereby exempted Nazis from the gun control law.
  • Gave Nazis unrestricted power to decide what kinds of firearms could, or could not be owned by private persons.
  • The types of ammunition that were legal were subject to control by bureaucrats.
  • Juveniles under 18 years could not buy firearms and ammunition.

Regulations Against Jews' Possession of Weapons


11 November 1938


With a basis in §31 of the Weapons Law of 18 March 1938 (Reichsgesetzblatt I, p.265), Article III of the Law on the Reunification of Austria with Germany of 13 March 1938 (Reichsgesetzblatt I, p. 237), and §9 of the Führer and Chancellor's decree on the administration of the Sudeten-German districts of 1 October 1938 (Reichsgesetzblatt I, p 1331) are the following ordered: 

 §1
Jews (§5 of the First Regulations of the German Citizenship Law of 14 November 1935, Reichsgesetzblatt I, p. 1333) are prohibited from acquiring, possessing, and carrying firearms and ammunition, as well as truncheons or stabbing weapons.  Those now possessing weapons and ammunition are at once to turn them over to the local police authority.
§2
Firearms and ammunition found in a Jew's possession will be forfeited to the government without compensation.
§3
The Minister of the Interior may make exceptions to the Prohibition in §1 for Jews who are foreign nationals.  He can entrust other authorities with this power.
§4
Whoever willfully or negligently violates the provisions of §1 will be punished with imprisonment and a fine.  In especially severe cases of deliberate violations, the punishment is imprisonment in a penitentiary for up to five years.
§5
For the implementation of this regulation, the Minister of the Interior waives the necessary legal and administrative provisions.
§6
This regulation is valid in the state of Austria and in the Sudeten-German districts.

Registration: The Nazi Paradigm (American Rifleman, Vol.149 No.6, June 2001, page 52.)
By Stephen P. Halbrook, Ph.D., J.D.
New research into Adolf Hitler's use of firearms registration lists to confiscate guns and the execution of their owners teaches a forceful lesson -- one that reveals why the American people and Congress have rejected registering honest firearm owners.

After invading, Nazis used pre-war lists of gun owners to confiscate firearms, and many gun owners simply disappeared.  Following confiscation, the Nazis were free to wreak their evil on the disarmed populace, such as on these helpless Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto. (National Archives Photo)
t would be instructive at this time to recall why the American citizenry and Congress have historically opposed the registration of firearms.  The reason is plain.  Registration makes it easy for a tyrannical government to confiscate firearms and to make prey of its subjects.  Denying this historical fact is no more justified than denying that the Holocaust occurred or that the Nazis murdered millions of unarmed people.
     I am writing a book on Nazi policies and practices which sought to repress civilian gun ownership and to eradicate gun owners in Germany and in occupied Europe.  The following sampling of my findings should give pause to the suggestion that draconian punishment of citizens for keeping firearms necessarily is a social good.
     The Night of the Broken Glass (Kristallnacht) --the infamous Nazi rampage against Germany's Jews--took place in November 1938.  It was preceded by the confiscation of firearms from the Jewish victims.  On Nov. 8, the New York Times reported from Berlin, "Berlin Police Head Announces 'Disarming' of Jews," explaining:
The Berlin Police President, Count Wolf Heinrich von Helldorf, announced that as a result of a police activity in the last few weeks the entire Jewish population of Berlin had been "disarmed" with the confiscation of 2,569 hand weapons, 1,702 firearms and 20,000 rounds of ammunition.  Any Jews still found in possession of weapons without valid licenses are threatened with the severest punishment.1
     On the evening of Nov. 9, Adolf Hitler, Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels, and other Nazi chiefs planned the attack.  Orders went out to Nazi security forces: "All Jewish stores are to be destroyed immediately . . . . Jewish synagogues are to be set on fire . . . . The Führer wishes that the police does not intervene. . . . All Jews are to be disarmed.  In the event of resistance they are to be shot immediately."2
     All hell broke loose on Nov. 10: "Nazis Smash, Loot and Burn Jewish Shops and Temples."   "One of the first legal measures issued was an order by Heinrich Himmler, commander of all German police, forbidding Jews to possess any weapons whatever and imposing a penalty of twenty years confinement in a concentration camp upon every Jew found in possession of a weapon hereafter."3
     Thousands of Jews were taken away.

Invading Nazi troops in Holland in 1940 immediately nailed up posters announcing a ban on all firearms.  From Die Deutsche Wochenshau, May 15, 1940.  (Photo by Moser + Rosié, Berlin)

     Searches of Jewish homes were calculated to seize firearms and assets and to arrest adult males.  The American Consulate in Stuttgart was flooded with Jews begging for visas: "Men in whose homes old, rusty revolvers had been found during the last few days cried aloud that they did not dare ever again return to their places of residence or business.  In fact, it was a mass of seething, panic-stricken humanity."4
     Himmler, head of the Nazi terror police, would become an architect of the Holocaust, which consumed six million Jews.  It was self evident that the Jews must be disarmed before the extermination could begin.
     Finding out which Jews had firearms was not too difficult.  The liberal Weimar Republic passed a Firearm Law in 1928 requiring extensive police records on gun owners.  Hitler signed a further gun control law in early 1938.
     Other European countries also had laws requiring police records to be kept on persons who possessed firearms.  When the Nazis took over Czechoslovakia and Poland in 1939, it was a simple matter to identify gun owners.  Many of them disappeared in the middle of the night along with political opponents.

Citizens had 24 hours to surrender all firearms to the Nazis or face the death penalty.  Printed in German on the left and Flemish on the right.  For translation, see below.  From Die Deutsche Wochenschau, May 15, 1940.  (Photo by Moser + Rosié, Berlin)
Regulations on Arms Possession in the Occupied Zone
1. All firearms and ammunition, hand grenades, explosive devices and other war matériel are to be surrendered.  The delivery must take place within 24 hours at the nearest German military administrative headquarters or garrison, provided that other special arrangements have not been made.  The mayors (heads of the district councils) must accept full responsibility for complete implementation. Commanding officers are authorized to approve exceptions.
     Imagine that you are sitting in a movie house in Germany in May 1940.  The German Weekly Newsreel comes on to show you the attack on Holland, Belgium, and France.5  The minute Wehrmacht troops and tanks cross the Dutch border, the film shows German soldiers nailing up a poster about 2½ by 3 feet in size.  It is entitled "Regulations on Arms Possession in the Occupied Zone" ("Verordnung über Waffenbesitz im besetzen Gebiet").  The camera scans the top of the double-columned poster, written in German on the left and Flemish on the right, with an eagle and swatiska in the middle.  It commands that all firearms be surrendered to the German commander within 24 hours.   The full text is not in view, but similar posters threatened the death penalty for violation.
     The film shows artillery and infantry rolling through the streets as happy citizens wave.  It then switches to scenes of onslaughts against Dutch and Belgian soldiers, and Hitler's message that this great war would instate the 1000-year Reich.  A patriotic song mixed with the images and music of artillery barrages, Luftwaffe bombings, and tank assaults compose the grand finale.

Ordinance Concerning the Possession of Arms and Radio Transmitters in the Occupied Territories
1) All firearms and all sorts of munitions, hand grenades, explosives and other war materials must be surrendered immediately.Delivery must take place within 24 hours to the closest "Kommandantur" [German commander's office] unless other arrangements have been made. Mayors will be held strictly responsible for the execution of this order. The [German] troop commanders may allow exceptions.
2) Anyone found in possession of firearms, munitions, hand grenades, or other war materials will be sentenced to death or forced labor or in lesser cases prison.
3) Anyone in possession of a radio or a radio transmitter must surrender it to the closest German military authority.
4) All those who would disobey this order or would commit any act of violence in the occupied lands against the German army or against any of its troops will be condemned to death.
The Commander in Chief
of the Army
     France soon fell, and the same posters threatening the death penalty for possession of a firearm went up everywhere.  You can see one today in Paris at the Museum of the Order of the Liberation (Musée de l'Ordre de la Libération).   A photograph of the poster is reproduced here, including a translation in the sidebar.
     There was a fallacy to the threat.  No blank existed on the poster to write in the time and date of posting, so one would know when the 24-hour "waiting period" began or ended.  Perhaps the Nazis would shoot someone who was an hour late.   Indeed, gun owners even without guns were dangerous because they knew how to use guns and tend to be resourceful, independent-minded persons.  A Swiss manual on armed resistance stated with such experiences in mind:
Should you be so trusting and turn over your weapons you will be put on a "black list" in spite of everything.  The enemy will always need hostages or forced laborers later on (read: "work slaves") and will gladly make use of the "black lists."  You see once again that you cannot escape his net and had better die fighting.  After the deadline, raids coupled with house searches and street checks will be conducted.6
Commented the New York Times about the interrelated rights which the Nazis destroyed wherever they went:
Military orders now forbid the French to do things which the German people have not been allowed to do since Hitler came to power.  To own radio senders or to listen to foreign broadcasts, to organize public meetings and distribute pamphlets, to disseminate anti-German news in any form, to retain possession of firearms -- all these things are prohibited for the subjugated people of France . . . .7
     While the Nazis made good on the threat to execute persons in possession of firearms, the gun control decree was not entirely successful.  Partisans launched armed attacks.  But resistance was hampered by the lack of civilian arms possession.
     In 1941, U.S. Attorney General Robert Jackson called on Congress to enact national registration of all firearms.8  Given events in Europe, Congress recoiled, and legislation was introduced to protect the Second Amendment.  Rep. Edwin Arthur Hall explained: "Before the advent of Hitler or Stalin, who took power from the German and Russian people, measures were thrust upon the free legislatures of those countries to deprive the people of the possession and use of firearms, so that they could not resist the encroachments of such diabolical and vitriolic state police organizations as the Gestapo, the Ogpu, and the Cheka."9
     Rep. John W. Patman added: "The people have a right to keep arms; therefore, if we should have some Executive who attempted to set himself up as dictator or king, the people can organize themselves together and, with the arms and ammunition they have, they can properly protect themselves. . . ."10
     Only two months before the Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, Congress enacted legislation to authorize the President to requisition broad categories of property with military uses from the private sector on payment of fair compensation, but also provided:
Nothing contained in this Act shall be construed--
(1) to authorize the requisitioning or require the registration of any firearms possessed by any individual for his personal protection or sport (and the possession of which is not prohibited or the registration of which is not required by existing law), [or]
(2) to impair or infringe in any manner the right of any individual to keep and bear arms . . . .11
     Meanwhile Hilter unleashed killing squads called the Einsatzgruppen in Eastern Europe and Russia.  As Raul Hilberg observes, "The killers were well armed . . . . The victims were unarmed."12   The Einsatzgruppen executed two million people between fall 1939 and summer 1942.  Their tasks included arrest of the politically unreliable, confiscation of weapons, and extermination.13
     Typical executions were that of a Jewish woman "for being found without a Jewish badge and for refusing to move into the ghetto" and another woman "for sniping."  Persons found in possession of firearms were shot on the spot.  Yet reports of sniping and partisan activity increased.14
     Armed citizens were hurting the Nazis, who took the sternest measures.  The Nazis imposed the death penalty on a Pole or Jew: "If he is in unlawful possession of firearms, . . . or if he has credible information that a Pole or a Jew is in unlawful possession of such objects, and fails to notify the authorities forthwith."15
     Given the above facts, it is not difficult to understand why the National Rifle Association opposed gun registration at the time and still does.  The American Riflemen for February 1942 reported:
     From Berlin on January 6th the German official radio broadcast -- "The German military commander for Belgium and Northern France announced yesterday that the population would be given a last opportunity to surrender firearms without penalty up to January 20th and after that date anyone found in possession of arms would be executed."
     So the Nazi invaders set a deadline similar to that announced months ago in Czecho-Slovakia, in Poland, in Norway, in Romania, in Yugo-Slavia, in Greece.
     How often have we read the familiar dispatches "Gestapo agents accompanied by Nazi troopers swooped down on shops and homes and confiscated all privately-owned firearms!"
     What an aid and comfort to the invaders and to their Fifth Column cohorts have been the convenient registration lists of privately owned firearms -- lists readily available for the copying or stealing at the Town Hall in most European cities.
     What a constant worry and danger to the Hun and his Quislings have been the privately owned firearms in the homes of those few citizens who have "neglected" to register their guns!16
     During the war years the Rifleman regularly included pleas for American sportsmen to "send a gun to defend a British home.17  British civilians, faced with the threat of invasion, desperately need arms for the defense of their homes."  Indeed, the New York Times carried the same solicitations.  After two decades of gun control, British citizens now desperately needed rifles and pistols in their homes, and they received the gifts with great appreciation.   Organized into the Home Guard, armed citizens were now ready to resist the expected Nazi onslaught.
     With so many men and guns sent abroad to fight the war, America still needed defending from expected invasions on the East and West coasts, domestic sabotage, and Fifth Column activity.  Sportsmen and gun clubs responded by bringing their private arms and volunteering for the state protective forces.18
     Switzerland was the only country in Europe, indeed in the world, where every man had a military rifle in his home.  Nazi invasion plans acknowledged the dissuasive nature of this armed populace, as I have detailed in my book Target Switzerland: Swiss Armed Neutrality in World War II (Rockville Center, N.Y.: Sarpedon Publishers, 1998).
Resistance to Nazi oppression was hampered by the lack of civilian arms possession.  One of the most notable exceptions was the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising in 1943, which began with a few incredibly brave Jews armed with handguns.  They were able to temporarily stop deportations of Jews to Nazi extermination camps.  (National Archives Photo)
     Out of all the acts of armed citizen resisters in the war, the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943 is difficult to surpass in its heroism.  Beginning with just a few handguns, armed Jews put a temporary stop to the deportations to extermination camps, frightened the Nazis out of the ghetto, stood off assaults for days on end, and escaped to the forests to continue the struggle.  What if there had been two, three, many Warsaw Ghetto Uprisings?
     The NRA trained hundreds of thousands of Americans in rifle marksmanship during the war.  President Harry Truman wrote that NRA's firearms training programs "materially aided our war effort" and that he hopped "the splendid program which the National Rifle Association has followed during the past three-quarters of a century will be continued."20  By helping defeat the Nazi and Fascist terror regimes, the NRA helped end the Holocaust, slave labor, and the severest oppression.
     Those tiny pacifist organizations of the era which called for gun registration and confiscation contributed nothing to winning the war or to stopping the genocide.  Their counterparts today have nothing to offer that would enable citizens to resist genocide.
     Individual criminals wreak their carnage on individuals or small numbers of people.  As this century has shown, terrorist governments have the capacity to commit genocide against millions of people, provided that the people are unarmed.  Schemes to confiscate firearms kept by peaceable citizens have historically been associated with some of the world's most insidious tyrannies.  Given this reality, it is not surprising that law-abiding gun owners oppose being objects of registration.

What were you doing in the last hour while the U.S. Gov't spent $188 Million Dollars of our money!  (Every Hour, Every Day!) (Apr11)   In 8 years, President Bush added $5 trillion to the national debt; President Obama, according to a revised Dec11 GAO report, added $4T+ to the U.S. deficit in 2011 alone!  The GAO estimates the deficit, including o'scamcare & mandates, may grow from $15T+ to over $26T+!  UPDATE: A little-noticed event occurred at approximately midnight on Monday, October 31, 2011.  The National Debt exceeded the GDP!  Imagine what these numbers are going to be now that Obama is reelected!

A trillion seconds pass in 31,688 years.  At $1/sec it would take 41,194 years just to pay off o'tax'n spend's new Feb12-Feb13 added debt - 538,696 years to pay only the national debt or 4,404,632 years to settle the debt+unfunded liabilities!

"Over the last four years our national debt has risen nearly $6 trillion, and just last week the debt topped an astounding $16 trillion.  To put that in perspective, $16 trillion is enough money to fund the US military, along with the military of every NATO country combined… for the next sixteen years!  Government spending is projected to hit $3.8 trillion this year alone.  Even after every tax dollar paid by Americans has been counted, the government will still overspend by another $1.13 trillion.  Every single second of the day our government spends over $12,000.  So in the time it takes you to read this article, roughly five minutes, our government has spent $3.6 million.  It take four seconds for the government to spend what the average American earns in an entire year."  (source: by Tim Phillips 17Sep12 at TownHall.com)
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself.  They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence … From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that is good." -- George Washington

     It has been suggested that o'who?, the clown, and 'those who surround him' are not the bumbling fools they appear to be.  Nor are they one of the 'Three Stooges' but rather are shrewd implementation/drivers and fellow-travelers of policies designed to disarm the citizenry & collapse the American economy.  Why?  o'nocchio's grandiose scheme to "fundamentally transform America" is more than simple campaign rhetoric as can be seen by his use of "enabling acts" to circumvent the Constitution of the United States.  As Ollie used to say, "Well, here's another nice mess you've gotten me into."
