Arms in The Hands of Jews

"Arms in The Hands Of Jews Are a Danger to Public Safety":
Nazism, Firearm Registration, and the
Night of The Broken Glass

In 1938, just weeks before Reichskristallnacht (Night of the Broken Glass), in Nazi Germany, Berlin police arrested Alfred Flatow. His crime: being a Jew in lawful possession of firearms. The police knew he possessed firearms because he dutifully registered them in 1932 under a decree by the liberal Weimar Republic. In anticipation of the pogrom, the Nazi leadership launched a campaign to disarm Jews. Flatow was one of many who were arrested and turned over to the Gestapo. He would eventually be deported and die in a concentration camp.

The police may not have realized that they had arrested a world-class gymnast who won the gold for Germany at the 1896 Olympics. ........

Halbrook examines the history of Nazi's 'gun control' on the Jews in considerable detail and well as including discussion about the Second Amendment and the right of United States citizens to keep and bear arms. He includes court cases such as Heller as well as matters such as firearms registration. This is an in depth and valuable reference work.
