The Documented TRUTH about Gun Control in Nazi Germany
"This year will go down in history. For the first time a civilized nation has full gun registration! Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future!"
The above ^ quote has been FALSELY attributed to Adolf Hitler. He NEVER said, nor wrote, such words! As a matter of fact, NO GERMAN STATE OFFICIAL DID!
We often hear, or see, repeated the myth that Hitler and the National Socialist State (1933 - 1945) outlawed private firearm ownership. The historically documented fact is that Hitler and the N.S.D.A.P. actually *loosened Gun Restrictions that were previously instituted by the Weimar Republic (1919 - 1933).
*Not that any gun restrictions are good, because NONE are, but lets be historically accurate and truthfully honest here.
Meanwhile back in America the United States Federal State was creating Federal Gun Restrictions, such as the National Firearms Act of 1934. Talk about irony!
The N.F.A. is what restricted the ownership of fully automatic rifles and shotguns with barrels under 18 inches long. You can own such items, but only after filling the proper paperwork (permission slip) and paying the required (extorted) fees (taxes)
It was the N.F.A. -not nazis!- that led to such murderous fiascos as happened in 1992 at Ruby Ridge, Idaho (too short of shotgun barrels), and in 1993 in Waco,Texas (alleged rifles that fired too fast).
