1938 Socialists Understood The Importance Of Gun Control

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.

Nov. 9, Adolph 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.”

Nov. 10: “Nazis Smash, Loot and Burn Jewish Shops and Temples,” a headline read. “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.”4 Thousands of Jews were taken away.

    Interesting timing for this piece, because Dhogaza over in Rabett land posted this in a discussion about Libya.

    “Iraq may stabilize in a reasonable way yet. Nothing’s going to change the fact that the pretenses under which we invaded were as false as those manufactured by Germany in order to “justify” its “defensive” invasion of Poland in 1939 … ”

    I’m done with Rabett land as they have gone off the reservation.

    They weren’t socialists or communists- They were nazis. So we don’t want do anything the nazi did like eating and drinking. Their gun control of taking away guns as against modest gun control as registerring every single weapon and requiring it to be transferred when you sell and their firing patterns and ensuring noncitizens and criminals can’t legally buy guns. Also produce less guns.
