THE PAST MONTH

“It’s interesting to note that about a month ago national dialog was about how America was full of Nazis and run by Nazis or Nazi sympathizers. Now, for the last couple of days, people are talking about that same government disarming the citizenry – just like the Nazis of Germany did historically. This is hypocritical and ignores the lessons of history.

Further, when a Muslim terrorist commits a terrorist act, we rightly don’t blame all Muslims and hold them accountable. Yet; when someone commits mass murder with a gun, we wrongly want to hold all legal gun owners accountable. This is irrational and illogical.

Seems to me that the root causes of MOST (not all) of the violent crimes committed (and wars!) with any weapon are socio-economic in nature. If we do not address those conditions, there is no hope for curtailing the amount of violent crimes.”

Very few German citizens were qualified to possess guns in the 1930s. The Weimar Republic had strict firearm control laws. At the point the Third Reich modified how guns were controlled, a few parts of firearm laws were loosened, for example, permitting proprietorship for Nazi party individuals and the military. The restrictions were tightened in different ways. Nazi laws incapacitated “questionable” people, particularly Jews, yet casual confinements for “standard” German subjects. The strategies were later extended to incorporate the appropriation of arms in Nazi occupied nations.
