Chicago Aldermen As Nazis, #2 In Series

"In the early stages of Nazi Germany, there was a law that identified particular groups of people. This law has identified a particular group of people. This law is evil.” ~ Chicago Alderman Danny Solis, 25th Ward, June 9, 2010. The "evil" law that Solis referred to: Arizona's SB1070 immigration law. Solis is apparently unaware that Chicago's handgun ban is infinitely more akin to the "early stages of Nazi Germany" than Arizona's SB1070. In fact, SB1070 only directs Arizona law enforcement to make use of existing federal laws that are not currently being enforced by the federal government. While Solis and his cohorts on the City Council dare to call those of us who want to see our border actually be a border, and to eject trespassers, he and his fellow liberals in Chicago's city government violate our constitutional right to possess handguns - in a very Nazi-like way. There are some who falsely believe that Hitler did not ban handguns because, they say, such a ban was already in place before Hitler's rose to power. That's not exactly true, for it ignores the Third Reich's 1938 German Weapons Act. In the 'Reichsgesetzblatt' issue for the week of March 21, 1938, was the official text of the Weapons Law (March 18, 1938). It gave Hitler's Nazi party a stranglehold on the Germans, many of whom did not support the Nazis. We found that the Nazis did not invent "gun control" in Germany. The Nazis inherited gun control and then perfected it: they invented handgun control. Source: Jews For the Preservation of Firearms The 1938 German Weapons Act, the precursor of the current weapons law, superseded the 1928 law. As under the 1928 law, citizens were required to have a permit to carry a firearm and a separate permit to acquire a firearm. Furthermore, the law restricted ownership of firearms to "...persons whose trustworthiness is not in question and who can show a need for a gun permit," says servinghistory.com. "Gun restriction laws applied only to handguns, not to long guns or ammunition. Writes Prof. Bernard Harcourt of the University of Chicago, 'The 1938 revisions completely deregulated the acquisition and transfer of rifles and shotguns, as well as ammunition'." Hitler once said, "The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing." (From Hitler's Secret Conversations; Norman Cameron and R. H. Stevenstrans., 1961) Source: Stephen P. Halbrook, Ph.D. Hitler signed the 1938 German Weapons Act. The Gestapo enforced it. Today, American liberals, "progressives" and Democrats enforce very similar laws in this country. Also See: Chicago City Aldermen As Nazis, #1 and Chicago Aldermen As Nazis, #3 In Series
