SatireWorld.com – Sure, lets enact a true “Law on Firearms and Ammunition.” This law will require anyone who owns a firearm, or who wants to own a firearm in the future, to register their intentions with our Federal authorities and apply for a simple permit and a universal Firearm ID card.
To keep the playing field level, anyone who wants to purchase a firearm has to get a “Firearms Acquisition Permit.” If you need ammunition, you have to get an “Ammunition Acquisition Permit.” When you want to go hunting, you have to get an “Annual Hunting Permit.”

Every firearm that changes hands professionally has to have a serial number and the maker’s or dealers name stamped into the metal. We’ll make “Proof of need” a condition for issuance of all licenses, not just a carry permit. Mandatory prison sentences and fines will be imposed on anyone who sells or transfers a firearm or ammunition without a license. Oh yes, knives and clubs kill too! In our law we’ll make truncheons and stabbing weapons subject to the same licensing requirements as firearms, in terms of their manufacture and sale.
As a result of this law, all firearms and firearms owners will be registered. Everyone will feel safe.
Like it so far? Sounds pretty darn reasonable, right? I mean, what’s a little paperwork, or just a tad of a wait for a permit when everyone will be safe. No harm it’s fair and reasonable too.
Well, if you agreed with the wordage in the above law it might sound familiar to you. Did Bill Clinton propose it? Senator Dianne Feinstein? Sen. Charles Shumer? Nope to all of them and to any modern gun control advocate as being the author of this law.
This law (which by the way WAS a real law) has been already used with great success in the past. So if the concept makes you all squirmy and tingly with glee, and ready to proclaim it’s JUST COMMON SENSE… You’ll probably feel right at home goose stepping with your buddies and sharing a dream of attacking Poland!
This is the 1928 Nazi Germany Gun Law!
To take firearms from anyone they distrusted, the Nazis simply did not renew permits. Under the law, their privately created law, the Nazis could easily confiscate all firearms and ammunition from any, or all, selected groups. The gun law of 1928 had served the Nazis well. It made almost all law abiding firearms owners known to the authorities. The 1928 law on firearms and ammunition helped the Nazis to destroy democracy in Germany, by disarming the law abiding majority, whom they feared.
The Nazis came to power legally. They were voted into power. In elections held on March 5, 1933, the Nazis fell short of 50 percent of the vote. Hitler, afraid the public might oust him, didn’t plan to hold more elections.
On March 23, 1933, parliament voted to give him emergency powers under the Constitution. There were no more elections in Germany until after World War II. The Nazis were far from being popular with the German people. The Nazis knew that many Germans opposed them.
The Nazis used the 1928 Law on Firearms and Ammunition to disarm their opponents and to prevent any armed resistance. The Nazis, at most, were a minority of the German population, not the majority. The Nazis operated within the Law.
But in Germany, as here, a small private elite group wrote and defined the Law. WHEN YOU CREATE THE LAW, YOU CAN DEFINE THE LAW. IT CAN BE AS LEGAL TO ABOLISH LAWS AS IT IS TO INSTITUTE THEM. Hitler not only came to power legally, but instituted dictatorship legally.
On taking power in 1933, the Nazis did not immediately begin killing Jews. In April 1933, the Nazis enacted a law that kept Jews out of the civil service, universities, and most professions. In September 1935, the Nuremberg Laws were enacted: Jews lost their civil rights.
In November 1938, the Nazi SS troops were unleashed against Germany’s Jews. Jewish property was confiscated.
On March 18 1938, the Nazis enacted a new, tougher, gun control law. The Nazi Weapons Law (Waffengesetz) ensured that only Nazis and their friends could own or carry weapons, especially handguns.
Licenses to sell, own, or carry firearms were required, except for exempted Nazi organizations and officials. Private persons were not exempt, but a Nazi Party Membership Card was proof of political reliability. The Nazi Weapons Law stated that no Jew could be involved in any business involving firearms.
On November 11 1938, one day after the SS were unleashed against the Jews, new regulations under the Nazi Weapons Law barred Jews from owning any weapons.
Gun control in Nazi Germany was not difficult to enforce. Being a police state, (operating under the police power, not law) to get a “Firearm Acquisition License”, one had to prove one’s identity —- the national identity card) — and one’s political loyalty (nazi party membership card).
With strong police state controls over people, (loss of civil rights) gun control was easily enforced. A disarmed population is helpless. Bureaucrats and obedient civil servants “just doing their job”, helped the Nazis carry out their plans. Without the help of those good people who were just doing what they were told, the Nazis could never have murdered as many people as they did.
The Nazi Weapons Law of March 18, 1938 is the blueprint for “Gun Control” in America today. America could not make Nazi style gun control work without the documents that Nazi style gun control needs.
THE NAZI STYLE GUN CONTROL LAWS WERE ENACTED BY THE FEDERAL CONGRESS AS THE U.S. GUN CONTROL ACT OF 1968.
Under this Act: every law abiding firearm owner had to prove that he/she was law abiding; firearms dealers had to record purchases and sales of firearms on behalf of the federal government. Federal and/or state bureaucrats (un-elected civil servants) got the new and broad power to decide who, among law abiding persons, may own and/or carry firearms and under what conditions what type of firearms may lawfully be owned. The vague concept of “sporting purpose” as a way of classifying firearms was introduced.
Transactions in ammunition had to be recorded (this is no longer so). Ammunitions that were “legal” were subject to control by bureaucrats.
The Nazi gun control law required nation wide identification papers. Here in America the “social security number” created by Executive Order under President Franklin Roosevelt, is used as a national identifier. The Nazi gun law required a “Firearm Owner Identity Card.”
In Illinois, a person who wants to own a firearm has to get a “Firearm Owner Identification Card” complete with photograph. This takes 4 to 6 weeks. This “FOID” card is the direct descendent of the Nazi “Firearm Acquisition Permit” (Waffenerwerbschein), concealed carry permits are generally not available. No special permit is needed to transport a firearm from home to a target range if it is locked in the trunk of a car.
In Massachusetts, a “FOID” (Waffenerwerbscheine) card is necessary to own a firearm. To transport a pistol, even in a locked gun case in a locked trunk requires a “carry permit,” the direct descendant of the Nazi “Firearm Carry Permit” (Waffenschein). To get this permit, or a permit for general concealed carry, three (3) letters of reference are required, as is a safety course at applicant’s cost, a test of one’s knowledge of firearm law, and a talk with the chief of police. The chief of police may still withhold the permit. If he agrees to issue the permit, the applicant is then finger printed.
In New Jersey, an applicant must first get a “Firearm Purchaser Identification Card” (Waffenerwerbschein), which requires finger printing. There is a special document for would be handgun owners, the “Permit to Purchase a Handgun.” It is valid for 90 days, (extendable for 90 days for “good cause”) and only for one handgun. Copies of this permit must be sent to the issuing authority (the local police) and the state police; the seller keeps a copy and the purchaser keeps a copy. Concealed carry permits (Waffenschein) are only rarely issued and are valid for no more than 2 years. A “justifiable need” must be shown, but the term is not defined. The local police chief must approve it. His approval is reviewed by the Court in the applicants county of residence.
For the Nazis, society was the end, individuals the means, and its whole life consisted in using individuals as instruments for its social ends. Individuals rights were only recognized in so far as they were implied in the rights of the state. The state was conceived as an absolute, in comparison with which all individuals or groups are relative, only to be conceived of in their relation to the state. The Nazi state was viewed as an embodied will to power and government. The Nazi’s ruled under Police Power. The essential method of the police power is that of regulation, restriction, or prohibition, but not that of taking for public use.
This power or means is used where the government does not desire ownership of anything, but wishes rather to control the conduct of individuals. Sometimes regulation is much easier when a license is required. Some courts here in America have held that the taking of a few dollars for licenses, the primary purpose not being revenue, is an exercise of the police power. The courts have held that where “regulation goes too far it will be recognized as a taking.” In operation, it may be defined as the power of the state (government) to regulate the conduct of individuals to the point of complete prohibition of certain acts of conduct or even to the destruction of the things involved. This belief in the police power is the theory that animates a number of dictatorial and totalitarian regimes throughout the world today.
