Moving from gun control to people control.

Post-WW1 Germany had gun control long before Hitler. In large part, it was the reaction to the civil war between Communists and the rest of the populace. One of the first actions of the Nazis after they gained control was the reduction of the number and severity of technical prohibitions on weapons.

Nazis were not anti-gun. They were merely against guns for their political enemies, and for their prey like Gypsies and Jews. A good Nazi could have a pistol or a rifle. By 1938, a Jew couldn’t even own a stick for self-defense. You might recall where that trend led. This kind of thing had also been done in America through Jim Crow laws designed to disarm Negroes.

We are now seeing this trend revived in the US. Democrat Senator Yee is indicted for gun running to gangs. Democrat federal administration runs guns to Mexican drug cartelsNew York Mayors run around with numerous armed bodyguards. “Special” people get special treatment, while the prohibitionists try to disqualify as many Americans as possible with as many excuses as they can dream up. It is, in effect, an effort to revive the feudal Second Estate with an exclusive right to weapons and use of force. They mean to rule and their rules would not be enlightened or selfless.

    Don’t forget May Issue.

    Where it’s up to the local chief of police to determine whether or not you can bear arms, and in some places Mass/NY what kind of arms you can even own.

      As I recall, Hawaii is an extreme example, where the chief prides him (I kid you not) on the fact that he has never in 20 years issued a “may issue” permit.
      Something similar happened in Los Angeles, as nicely documented by Neil Schulman in his excellent book “Stopping Power”. There, one of the board members whose job it was to reject permit applications went to another county to get a permit, because he didn’t want to embarrass himself and his colleagues by asking his own committee for a permit, and ending up with the only permit they ever issued.

    I don’t know how people don’t see this. It’s not about guns…statists are perfectly fine with guns, as long as the Right People™ have them. It’s not about guns, it’s about control.

    with non-compliance to the local gun-grabs running around 90% in NY, Conn., and elsewhere, I don’t think it matters any more what kind of laws the State-ist parasites pass. The horse is out of the barn, and (their) barn is about to burn

    Prior to WWI, Kaiser Wilhelm and his administration were working hard to convince the other countries in Europe, specifically Belgium and France to enact strict gun control laws. It seems during the Franco-Prussian war the Belgian and French farmers kept using their hunting rifles to shoot Prussian officers. The good Kaiser in the interest of freedom, did not want that to happen again and kept suggesting that Belgium and France should confiscate guns from the rural land owners.

    If a government works diligently to disarm the people (subjects?), exactly what is the government wants to do that requires making people defenseless against the government?

    It is Democrats are using guns for their agenda and it’s not about gun control it’s about people control. No doubt about it!

    But let’s not be fooled, this is something greater than politics. Both Republicans and Democrats try to divide people on subjects to serve their own agenda, which always serve the ones with power and reduce people’s rights. The whole Patriot Act, NSA surveillance, DHS, etc… didn’t start with Obama administration. It has been a long con done by both parties, reducing day after day Americans rights.

    And now, it’s not a question of being pro-gun or anti-gun, it’s a matter of being pro-constitution or anti-constitution. It’s a matter of having the power, including the power to control people… regardless if it’s done by fear, by economics, by hunger or even by force. And to do it by force, they need to remove guns from the people.

    Also, keep in mind that NAZIs were National Socialist… they were socialist (based on some communist values), but they were also nationalist and Hitler did a lot of “good” things for Germans. Politics use whatever would work to own and control the people. But in the end, it’s just false solutions for false problems, lead by false values.

    Dividing people by proposing two false solutions is one of the oldest trick of the book. Let’s not fall into the whole Republican/Democrats sterile debate one more time. It’s a matter of being for the Constitution, for the Republic and therefor for the People… or being against them.

    My 2¢ 😉
