Viral Photo that is Giving Gun Owners the Chills

This gun registration photo from Connecticut has gone viral, due to some people’s perception that it is reminiscent of Weimar Germany or Munich, Austria.

In Connecticut, the state’s new gun laws have gone into effect, and there have been reports of long lines of people registering semi-automatic rifles and high-capacity magazines.

Anything the state considered to be an “assault weapon” (as opposed to a non-assault weapon?) or a high capacity magazine had to be registered before January 1st in order to be legally possessed.

The Germans passed the Law on Firearms and Ammunition of April 13, 1928, and it was strengthened under the Nazis in 1938. Eerily, historical research suggests that the Nazi Weapons Law of 1938 was drawn upon in Congress’ rush to pass gun control measures after the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy in 1968.
