    The Weimar Republic’s well-intentioned gun registry became a tool for evil.

    The perennial gun-control debate in America did not begin here. The same arguments for and against were made in the 1920s in the chaos of Germany’s Weimar Republic, which opted for gun registration. Law-abiding persons complied with the law, but the Communists and Nazis committing acts of political violence did not.

    SS chief Heinrich Himmler decreed that 20 years be served in a concentration camp by any Jew possessing a firearm. Rusty revolvers and bayonets from the Great War were confiscated from Jewish veterans who had served with distinction. Twenty thousand Jewish men were thrown into concentration camps, and had to pay ransoms to get released.

    If the heavy hand of government can frame a President, this can happen here too.

    We've seen how gun confiscation worked out before, so it ain't happening here. Politicians will start dropping first, and I'm not talking about their guns either.
