The Nazi Origins of American Gun Control Laws

Jews for the Protection of Firearms Ownership (JPFO) writes, “Startling evidence suggests that the Gun Control Act of 1968 was lifted, almost in its entirety, from Nazi legislation”:

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. . . .

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.

    Not surprising at all. The road to hell is always paved with good intentions as they say.

    • TheSunDidIt says:

      That would be Hitler’s election. Thing is, if you study it, it is VERY similar to Obama’s election. The one difference is that Hitler actually, in his way, loved HIS version of Germany. I don’t think Obama loves this nation at ANY level.

  2. shagphil says:

    Obama things he is a “Lincoln”….I think he is more a “Hitler”. Just saying…………

  3. Remington 870 says:

    Millions of gun owners know what game is being played by Obama and his National Socialists. There will be civil war if Obama and his Negro Army come to White America to confiscate guns. Laugh if you may…ridicule my predictions..but you better be ready or you will be another statistic.

  4. junkmailbin says:

    a power grab has the same results be it left or right. The common end is a government for the government not the people.

  5. ROY says:

    Nazi socialism showing up again. Divide and conquer by means
    of weapon ownership identification. A common scenario for socialist community
    organizers. Put those that work as the enemy of all those who do not. A common trait
    of socialism and has been used throughout history. The Romans , the French, the Nazi
    Germans the communist socialist in numerous countries, FDR in the 30’s/40’s and
    now Obama. Dictatorship starts out like the anti-Christ, all honey and cream at
    first then methodical removal of the common rights of the people. We have socialism taught at home, in our schools from K thu 12 and at all levels of graduate education. Obama is a good example of both efforts. Only the people can change this trend by electing true patriots and weeding out all the socialist from our government at all levels. Obama called for change, a socialist is what we got, now more and more dictatorial control. The socialist college professors are calling for ridding this country of the Constitution. So goes Satan.

  6. TheSunDidIt says:

    The difference is, this isn’t Germany and we have over two hundred years of loving our guns. They will not like the way they get them today if they come for them. And, do not expect that we’ll let you take them from our neighbor either. Picture this, fire from ALL directions when the police come knocking. No threat to you of law enforcement who are not part of the problem. The fact is, these gun grab attempts are EXACTLY why the second amendment was created; to stop tyranny.

  7. Russell J. Cope says:

    Obomas, gun control measures is aimed at absolute gun confiscation, I firmly believe that there is a close comparty to Hitler’s seduction of Germany. Thought-Obomas surrendering our sovereignty over to UN and then getting appointed as Sec.General UN, is there any compairsen to the path Adolph Hitler followed to Dictator over Germany???????

  8. Wayne Bauer says:

    The nazis are alive and well in America, time they be ended. Quit pussy footing around, the socialist dictators need eliminated.

  9. rchguns says:

    The person who wrote 99.9% of the gun control of 1968 was a man named Chris Dodd. That name may sound familiar because the Chris Dodd we just got rid of was his son.

    The way the story goes Chris Dodd Senior was in the Army and stationed in Nuremberg Germany where his job was to go through all the old Nazi records and catalog them and basically maintain them for any historical data.

    During his job he came across Hitler’s gun control act of 1938. He was so impressed that he kept a copy of the law that was passed by the Nazis. After the assassinations he saw the chance to write a bill that would fundamentally change America.

    The gun control act of 1968 was severely flawed and portions of it didn’t last a year. One of those was that all handgun ammunition had to be signed for. If you went to the store and bought up box of 22 shells you had to sign for. That didn’t last long. But it took something like 20 years get rid of the boondoggle of 1968. It was almost word for word the same law that was passed in Germany to allow Hitler to eliminate his political enemies and anyone who happen to disagree with them because they were now helpless.

    • Carl Stevenson says:

      His name was Thomas Dodd and he did plagiarize a translation of Hitler’s gun laws to “create” the GCA ’68

    • Carl Stevenson says:

      Why do you imply that the GCA’68 was “gotten rid of”??? It has merely been expanded, now they want more.

      • rchguns says:

        The Gun Control Act of 1968 was actually gotten rid of but portions of it were put into other gun-control laws I believe during the Reagan Administration. The reason I’m familiar with the gun control act of 68 is that at that time I was 18 and already had a conditional FFL license and they pulled my license because I wasn’t 21. In reality they didn’t expand on the existing law but instead they eliminated about 90% of it that was really questionable at best. They did keep things like mail-order and age limits for buying weapons and part of the laws regulating the transfer and sale of weapons. They use the hysteria of three assassinations that took place to push this thing through without hardly any debate whatsoever a lot like they did with Obama care. He had the assassination of John Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King all coming close together. The hysteria was even higher than it is now with these mass shootings.

    People make their choice by electing Obama, now it will going to get pretty bad before it will start improving. America is going to learn on the hard way, since people can’t make intelligent choices.

  11. Moose says:

    It surprises me that many Jewish organizations are pro gun control and a majority of American Jews are Democrats. You would think that their past history around the world would make them very wary of anyone who would take any freedoms away from them.

  12. brom says:

    I’ve been saying since before Obama was elected, that he is much like Hitler. If he gets his way, he will do things that most American’s never thought could or would happen in this country.

  13. MalikTous says:

    This scheiße is older than that. Stalin implemented similar restrictions when he murdered the Romanovs in the October Revolution. How about oppression by the Roman Empire about 2 millennia ago in Judæa, where the ‘subject state’ citizens were disarmed? I could keep going back along more lines (Chinese invention of martial arts to replace government confiscated personal weapons) to how weapons restrictions herald tyrant governments.

    This is why I consider LBJ a filthy libtard traitor at the same level as Komrad Wilhelm Klinton and Sheikh Borkup Obummer. All three should suffer the result of every single act and law they enacted being retroactively repealed. The only ‘reasonable gun laws’ are hunting regulations/game management and the concept that each weapon carrier is responsible for what he/she does with the weapon in his/her hand.

  14. pduffy says:

    The idea that the “state is god” is at the root of this issue, because those in power never give up their guns, but use them to tyrannize the population that has been disarmed. Hitler believed he was god, and his followers bowed down and worshipped, even coining the phrase, “heil hitler”, which is really “praise hitler”. Once a man assumes the role of God, to elevate the man above the people he must have more power than them, and that is accomplished by force. God, on the other hand, acheives his power with love and service, so you can see how satan has deceived the whole world, and it appears that Barry Soeobarka is following in the fascist steps of Hitler, elevating himself up above the people. There is no doubt he will try gun control, as this is required to accomplish the satanic glorification.

  15. Might of began in Clinton’s adm. there was talk of such back then…Obama digs this does the whole left…Check out Bank of America, if you buy or sell guns on the internet and bank your money with BOA…they might just put a hold on your savings…
