"Actually Hitler did take weapons from Jews and other undesirable folks. So did Hitler and the Nazis really take away Germans' guns, making the Holocaust unavoidable? This argument is superficially true at best, as University of Chicago law professor Bernard Harcourt explained in a 2004 paper (PDF) on Nazi Germany's impact on the American culture wars. As World War I drew to a close, the new Weimar Republic government banned nearly all private gun ownership to comply with the Treaty of Versailles and mandated that all guns and ammunition "be surrendered immediately." The law was loosened in 1928, and gun permits were granted to citizens "of undoubted reliability" (in the law's words) but not "persons who are itinerant like Gypsies." In 1938, under Nazi rule, gun laws became significantly more relaxed. Rifle and shotgun possession were deregulated, and gun access for hunters, Nazi Party members, and government officials was expanded. The legal age to own a gun was lowered. Jews, however on HITLER NEVER CONFISCATED GUNS!" - A reader pretending that the above quote proves that Hitler took the guns,when in reality it is not true !
Received this from a reader. I am sure the reader believes this statement to be true. But we at The University Of Wavestation X believe in...what's that word called...yeah ...FACTS! Bernard Harcourt has been debunked many times. he his mentioned in Wayne Lapierre's book. I must admit that I set a trap for the gun people. I was waiting for someone to mention Bernard Harcourt. You guys are so predictable. Plus, I won fifty bucks. Class dismissed ! Read this link that proves me right
