A must read for Anti gun freaks.

Gun Control’s Nazi Connection!


Are you tired of being told that “gun control” is a chronic pain
that you have to accept because there’s no cure? Do you — a law
abiding person — want to be free: to own whichever firearms you
want to own, regardless of where in America you live; from waiting
periods, gun bans, magazine capacity restrictions, etc.; to spend
your time on the range or in the field, rather than fighting
“gun control”?

Are you tired of giving hard earned bucks to efforts that have
at best only slowed the gun grabbers’ push toward firearms
registration and confiscation? If you have had enough of death
by a thousand cuts, you are ready to take action to wipe out
“gun control” — now.

Members of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership
(JPFO) consider “gun control” to be an aggressive cancer. JPFO
has a cure, a way to destroy “gun control”. JPFO has hard
evidence that shows that the Nazi Weapons Law (March 18, 1938)
is the source of the U.S Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA ‘68). Adolph
Hitler signed the Nazi Weapons Law. The Gestapo (Nazi National
Secret Police) enforced it. In “Gun Control”: Gateway to Tyranny
we present the official German text of the Nazi Weapons Law and
a side-by-side translation into English. Even more deadly: a side-by
-side, section-by-section comparison of the GCA ‘68 with the Nazi
Weapons Law. If you have this in your hands, no one can tell you
that you’re imagining things.

The clincher: JPFO knows who implanted into American law
cancerous ideas from the Nazi Weapons Law.

The likely culprit is a former senator, now deceased. We have
documentary proof — see below — that he had the original text
of the Nazi Weapons Law in his possession 4 months before the
bill that became GCA ‘68 was signed into law.

This former senator was a senior member of the U.S. team that
helped to prosecute Nazi war criminals at Nuremberg, Germany, in
1945-46. That is probably where he found out about the Nazi
Weapons Law. He may have gotten a copy of it then, or at a later
date. We cannot imagine why any U.S. lawmaker would own original
texts of Nazi laws. To find out his name, read on.

With this hard evidence in your hands and in your head, you can
destroy cancerous “gun control”. You can challenge anyone who
backs “gun control”. You can show them the Nazi ideas, line by line.

The parallels between the Nazi law and GCA ‘68 will leap at you
from the page. For example, law abiding firearm owners in
Illinois, Massachusetts and New Jersey must carry identification
cards based on formats from the Nazi Weapons Law. Nazi based
laws have no place in America. Thousands of Americans died or
were wounded in the war to wipe out the Nazis. They did not
suffer or die so that Hitler’s ideas could live on in America and
kill more Americans. Remember Killeen, Texas! The 23 who
died in Luby’s Cafeteria there died because they obeyed Nazi
inspired “gun control” laws. The law forced them, unarmed, to
face an armed madman.

To destroy “gun control” before more law abiding Americans
are murdered by criminals or madmen helped by “gun control”, you
need to get hold of the evidence as presented in “Gun Control”:
Gateway to Tyranny. You can then challenge the media, the most
aggressive backers of “gun control”. Ask media personalities in your
city or town why they back Nazi based laws. You can help to erase
“gun control”, Hitler’s last legacy.

GCA ‘68 puts your life at risk right now. You have a constitutional
civil right to be armed in order to protect yourself, because under
U.S law the police have no duty to protect the average person:

“There is no constitutional right to be protected by the state
(or Federal) against being murdered by criminals or
madmen. It is monstrous if the state fails to protect its
residents against such predators but it does not violate
the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment,
or, we suppose, any other provision of the Constitution. The
Constitution is a charter of negative liberties: it tells the state
(gov’t) to let people alone; it does not require the federal
government or the state to provide services, even so
elementary a service as maintaining law and order”
(Bowers v. DeVito, U.S. Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit,
686F.2d 616 [1982]).

The Supreme Court last dealt with this issue in 1856; the
1982 decision states the position in modern language. The
laws of virtually every state parallel federal law (see JPFO
Special Report Dial 911 and Die! covered in Guns & Ammo,
July 1992). This has been so ever since the Constitution
was adopted in 1791. As a result, the framers of the Second
Amendment deliberately created (guaranteed) an individual
civil right to be armed. It is your only reliable defense against
criminals. GCA ‘68 ties your hands and keeps you from
carrying out your legal duty to ensure your own self
defense. GCA ‘68 thus undermines a pillar of U.S. law and
helps criminals to kill law abiding Americans. Hitler would
be pleased.

Thus, GCA ‘68 marked a new approach to “gun control”. It
replaced the Federal Firearms Act (June 30, 1938), which
was based on the federal power to regulate interstate
commerce. The 1938 law required firearms dealers to get
a federal license (which then cost $1). Only dealers could ship
firearms across state lines. Ordinary people could receive
shipments from dealers.

In GCA ‘68 the government required that in almost all cases
only dealers could send and receive firearms across state
lines. This ended “mail order” sales of firearms by law abiding
persons who are not licensed dealers. GCA ‘68 hits you even
harder. Congress gave federal bureaucrats in Washington D.C.,
the power to decide what kinds of firearms you can own. The
framers of GCA ‘68 borrowed an idea — that certain firearms
are “hunting weapons” — from the Nazi Weapons Law (Section
21 and Section 32 of the Regulations, page 61 and page 73,
respectively, of “Gun Control”: Gateway to Tyranny). The
equivalent U.S. term, “sporting purpose,” was used to classify
firearms. But it was not defined anywhere in GCA ‘68. Thus,
bureaucrats were empowered to ban whole classes of
firearms. They have, in fact, done so.

We wanted to know the source of these new ideas. On reading
“Dial 911 and Die!” a JPFO member told us he had seen an
article — by Alan Stang in ‘Review of the News,’ October 4, 1967
(pages 15-20) — the author of which felt that the Nazi Weapons
Law was the model for GCA ‘68. We found the article. But Stang
did not reproduce the Nazi law, so we could not check his conclusions.

We started to hunt for the text of the Nazi Weapons Law. We
eventually found it, in the law library of an Ivy League university.

Until 1943-44, the German government published its laws and
regulations in the ‘Reichsgesetzblatt,’ roughly the equivalent of
the U.S. Federal Register. Carefully shelved by law librarians, the
1938 issues of this German government publication had gathered
a lot of dust. In the ‘Reichsgesetzblatt’ issue for the week of March
21, 1938, was the official text of the Weapons Law (March 18,
1938). It gave Hitler’s Nazi party a stranglehold on the Germans,
many of whom did not support the Nazis. We found that the Nazis
did not invent “gun control” in Germany. The Nazis inherited gun
control and then perfected it: they invented handgun control.

The Nazi Weapons Law of 1938 replaced a Law on Firearms and
Ammunition of April 13, 1928. The 1928 law was enacted by a
center-right, freely elected German government that wanted to
curb “gang activity,” violent street fights between Nazi party and
Communist party thugs. All firearm owners and their firearms had
to be registered. Sound familiar? “Gun control” did not save
democracy in Germany. It helped to make sure that the
toughest criminals, the Nazis, prevailed.

The Nazis inherited lists of firearm owners and their firearms when
they ‘lawfully’ took over in March 1933. The Nazis used these
inherited registration lists to seize privately held firearms from
persons who were not “reliable.” Knowing exactly who owned
which firearms, the Nazis had only to revoke the annual ownership
permits or decline to renew them.

In 1938, five years after taking power, the Nazis enhanced the
1928 law. The Nazi Weapons Law introduced handgun
control. Firearms ownership was restricted to Nazi party
members and other “reliable” people.

The 1938 Nazi law barred Jews from businesses involving
firearms. On November 10. 1938 — one day after the Nazi
party terror squads (the SS) savaged thousands of Jews,
synagogues and Jewish businesses throughout Germany —
new regulations under the Weapons Law specifically barred
Jews from owning any weapons, even clubs or knives.

Given the parallels between the Nazi Weapons Law and the
GCA ‘68, we concluded that the framers of the GCA ‘68 —
lacking any basis in American law to sharply cut back the
civil rights of law abiding Americans — drew on the Nazi
Weapons Law of 1938.

Finding the Nazi Weapons Law whetted our appetite. We
wanted to know who implanted this Nazi cancer in
America. We began by probing the backgrounds of
lawmakers who championed “gun control”. We focused
on those whose bills became part of GCA ‘68. GCA ‘68 as
enacted closely tracks proposals dating to August
1963. We felt that if the culprit were a lawmaker —
or a congressional staffer — he or she would know
Germany, German law and possibly even speak
German. He or she probably would have spent time in
Germany on business or during military service. Alternatively,
if the culprit were not a member of Congress or a staffer, there
would be testimony at the hearings to that effect.

Most potential suspects were quickly eliminated; they had
no apparent ties to Germany. But one lawmaker caught our attention.

An old “Who’s Who” entry showed he had been a senior member
of the U.S. team that prosecuted German war criminals at Nuremberg
in 1945-46. Thus, he had lived in Germany just after the Nazi
period. His official duties required him to look at Nazi records, including
Nazi laws. In 1963 he led the effort to greatly expand the Federal
Firearms Act of 1938.

We then got a break. We told a legal scholar of our findings. He was
intrigued. He sent us an extract from the record of hearings held a
few months prior to the enactment of GCA ‘68. At the end of June
1968, the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee to investigate Juvenile
Delinquency — chaired by Thomas J. Dodd (D-CT) — held hearings
on bills: (1) “To Require the Registration of Firearms” (S.3604).
(2) “To Disarm Lawless Persons” (S.3634) and (3) “To Provide for
the Establishment of a National Firearms Registry” (S.3637),
among others.

U.S. Representative John Dingell (D-MI) testified at these Senate
hearings on “gun control”. Senator Joseph D. Tydings (D-MD) chaired
some of these hearings, in Dodd’s absence.

Rep. Dingell expressed concern that if firearms registration were
required, it might lead to confiscation of firearms, as had happened
in Nazi Germany. Tydings angrily accused Rep. Dingell of using
“scare tactics”:

“Are you inferring that our system here, gun registration or licensing,
would in any way be comparable to the Nazi regime in Germany, where
they had a secret police, and a complete takeover?”

Rep. Dingell backed away.

(Hearings before the Subcommittee to Investigate Juvenile Delinquency
of the Committee on the Judiciary, 90th Congress, 2nd Session, June 26,
27 and 28 and July 8, 9 and 10. 1968, pp. 479-80, 505-6 cited as
Subcommittee Hearings.)

Tydings later inserted into the hearing record various documents,
“concerning the history of Nazism and gun confiscation.”

Exhibit No. 62 (see reproduction) is fascinating. This letter — dated
July 12, 1968 — is to Subcommittee Chairman Dodd from Lewis C.
Coffin, Law Librarian at the Library of Congress. Coffin wrote:

” … we are enclosing herewith a translation of the Law on Weapons
of March 18, 1938, prepared by Dr. William Solyom-Fekete of
[the European Law Division — ed.] as well as the Xerox of the
original German text which you supplied” (Subcommittee
Hearings, p. 489, emphasis added).

This letter makes it public knowledge that at the end of June
1968 — 4 months before GCA ‘68 was enacted — Senator
Thomas J. Dodd, now deceased, personally owned a copy
of the original German text of the Nazi Weapons Law.

Why did Dodd own the original German text of any
Nazi law? Why did he make known that he owned it?

The Library of Congress then had (and still has) the
‘Reichsgesetzblatt’ in its collection. The Library of Congress
translator, Dr. Solyom-Fekete, could easily have used the
Library of Congress’ own copy.

Any member of Congress who wanted to read the Nazi
Weapons Law need only have asked for it to be produced
from the shelves of the Library of Congress and for it to
be translated by Library of Congress experts. Why should
any member of Congress ever have owned the original
German text of the Nazi Weapons Law?

Without access to Tom Dodd’s personal papers, archived
under his heirs’ control, we unfortunately cannot offer
definite answers.

Dodd could have acquired the German text of the
Nazi Weapons Law during his time at Nuremberg. But
he had no need to do so.

Dodd did not personally handle the prosecution of Nazi
Interior Minister Wilhelm Frick, who signed the Nazi
Weapons Law. The case against Frick was presented
by Robert M.W. Kempner, Assistant Trial Counsel for
the United States (see ‘Trial of the Major War Criminals
before the International Military Tribunal,’ cited as
TMWC, Vol. V, pp. 352-67, Nuremberg, Germany, 1947).

Nor should the Nazi Weapons Law otherwise have come to
Dodd’s attention. The Nazi Weapons Law was not used as
evidence against Frick (see Kempner’s speech, TMWC,
V, pp. 352-67 and ‘Index of Laws, Decrees, Orders,
Directives, and the Administration of Justice in Nazi
Germany and Nazi Dominated Countries’, TMWC,
Vol. XXIII, pp. 430-33). The Nazi Weapons Law is
not listed among documents submitted as evidence
to the Tribunal by the American prosecutors
(see Vol. XXIV, pp. 98-169).

The prosecutors at Nuremberg doubtless knew of the
Nazi Weapons Law. They probably saw it in the
‘Reichsgesetzblatt.’ On the same day that Nazi Interior
Minister Frick signed the Weapons Law, March 18, 1938,
he signed another law governing security measures in
newly annexed Austria. This law concerning Austria
appeared in the ‘Reichsgesetzblatt’ — directly in front
of the Weapons Law — and was introduced into evidence
at Nuremberg (’Reichsgesetzblatt’ 1938, I, p. 262; the
Nazi Weapons Law was published in the same volume,
p. 265; see TMWC, Vol. V, p.358 for reference to law
concerning Austria).

Thus, the Nazi Weapons Law appeared to have no historical
merit at Nuremberg and should not have attracted anyone’s
notice, certainly not to the extent of causing anyone to want
o keep a copy of it as a separate document.

If Dodd got his copy of the original German text of the Nazi
Weapons Law during his time at Nuremberg, it likely was
part of a collection of documents, for example, issues of the

But if he acquired the original German text of the Nazi Weapons
Law after his service at Nuremberg, he must have done so for a
very specific reason. The Nazi Weapons Law plainly did not
figure at Nuremberg.

We may safely conclude it had little, if any, interest for those
interested in the history of the Nazis’ rise to power. For example,
the Nazi Weapons Law is not mentioned at all in William L. Shirer’s
very thorough study of Nazi Germany, ‘The Rise and Fall of the
Third Reich’ (Simon and Schuster, New York, 1950).

At the hearings held by Dodd’s subcommittee at the end of
June 1968, Rep. Dingell had objected to the firearms registration
provision then being discussed. Dodd may have offered his copy
of the Nazi Weapons Law to show that the specific proposal did
not resemble anything in the Nazi law.

He may not have realized that he was revealing a broader
truth; that the whole fabric of GCA ‘68 was based on the
Nazi Weapons Law, even if the specific registration proposal
was not so based.

Alternatively, Dodd may not have cared whether or not
anyone knew that he had the German text of the Nazi Weapons
Law. He doubtless knew that months would pass before the
hearing record was printed and so generally available for
scrutiny. Thus, even if anyone then noticed the parallels
between the two laws, the bill would already have become law.

Rep. Dingell does not appear to have pursued the matter: the
firearms registration provision was not included in GCA ‘68.
The Congress was stampeded on “gun control” by public
enthusiasm. Martin Luther King had been murdered on April 4,
1968, and Robert F. Kennedy had been murdered on June 6, 1968.

We are not the first to have seen this hearing record. But we
appear to be the first to have recognized its importance. This
hearing record suggests strongly that the late Senator
Thomas J. Dodd (D-CT) himself implanted the Nazi Weapons
Law into American law, or, at very least, helped others to do so.

Now you know the ugly truth about the roots of GCA ‘68. But
you need to see — with your own eyes — the hard evidence of
the Nazi roots of “gun control” in America presented in “Gun
Control”: Gateway to Tyranny.

If you want to destroy “gun control”, you can use this book
to do it.

The Nazi Weapons Law of March 18, 1938, cleared the way
for World War II and Nazi genocide against the Jews, Gypsies and
7,000,000 other people.
