Gun Control in the Third Reich

ABSOLUTE CONTROL OF THE PEOPLE CAN ONLY COME ABOUT THROUGH GUN CONTROL.  THE LEADERS OF THE THIRD REICH AS WELL AS THOSE OF STALIN'S RUSSIA WERE WELL AWARE OF THIS.  THESE TWO GIANTS WERE AT EACH OTHERS THROATS DURING THE WWII ERA, BUT DESPITE THE FACT THEY WERE BITTER ENEMIES THEY WERE IN AGREEMENT ON ONE THING -- PEOPLE CONTROL.  THIS BOOK IS NOT SO MUCH ABOUT THE OLD USSR, BUT ABOUT THE GUN CONTROL USED BY THE NAZIS TO DISARM THE JEWS IN GERMANY WHO WERE CONSIDERED ENEMIES OF THE STATE, AND ROUNDED UP AND SENT TO THE EXTERMINATION CAMPS.
Based on newly-discovered, secret documents from German archives, diaries and newspapers of the time, Gun Control in the Third Reich presents the definitive, yet hidden history of how the Nazi regime made use of gun control to disarm and repress its enemies and consolidate power. The countless books on the Third Reich and the Holocaust fail even to mention the laws restricting firearms ownership, which rendered political opponents and Jews defenseless. A skeptic could surmise that a better-armed populace might have made no difference, but the National Socialist regime certainly did not think so—it ruthlessly suppressed firearm ownership by disfavored groups. Gun Control in the Third Reich spans the two decades from the birth of the Weimar Republic in 1918 through Kristallnacht in 1938. The book then presents a panorama of pertinent events during World War II regarding the effects of the disarming policies. And even though in the occupied countries the Nazis decreed the death penalty for possession of a firearm, there developed instances of heroic armed resistance by Jews, particularly the Warsaw ghetto uprising.

Yep, it's been done over and over. And those that are targeted rarely give up easily. Won't happen here either.

Have a terrific day my friend. ☺
