Amazing. Of all people you would think this guy would get it. Jewish, he fled Nazi Germany as a boy in 1939. Yet John H. Adler says this:
Nowhere in the civilized world are civilians permitted to carry arms unless they have specific reasons to do so. Thanks to the unbelievable political power of the NRA, almost anyone within the USA can obtain a license to purchase a gun.
Yet, the majority of the American public just doesn’t get it!
Is it so hard to understand that our entire nation suffers from the ready availability of arms?
Why, and for what purpose, are we arming ourselves?
Surely our forefathers did not intend to create a country filled with potential murderers. When the law to bear arms was enacted, this entire country was the “Wild West.” But we grew up and we like to think of our society as being “civilized”.
Is there still hope that the people of our country will come to their senses? Will they ever say,
“We finally got it!”
A little refresher course for Mr. Adler from the preface to Lethal Laws “Gun Control” is the Key to Genocide:
A. Genocide: The Down-side of “Gun Control”
“Gun control” advocates cannot see any harm in “gun control”.
But “gun control” has a down-side. A very nasty one. “Gun control” victims number in the tens of millions.
The down-side of “gun control” is genocide.
There have been at least seven major genocides in this century, involving 50-60 million victims, using conservative estimates.
In every case, a “gun control” law was in force before the genocide began. In five of these cases, the lethal law – the “gun control” law was in force when the “genocide regime” took control of the government.
B. Personal Safety: The False Promise of “Gun Control”
“Gun control” laws usually enacted in a crisis: before or after a civil war, invasion, economic collapse, upsurge in terrorism, etc. People then put personal safety above all. In the long-run (and sometimes in the short-run) this deal – disarming in exchange for government “protection” – amounts to committing suicide for fear of death.
Even if protection actually is given during the crisis, the laws remain after the crisis ends. These laws clear the way for the murder of millions, sometimes decades later. “Gun control” has a fatal flaw. It can promote personal safety. But if – and only if – it is ruthlessly enforced. Government with the power to ruthlessly to enforce “gun control” laws can easily commit genocide. They have done so repeatedly – and increasingly often – in this century.
This flaw – that getting “gun control” to “work” involves giving government the power to commit genocide – is the reason the realizing at most short-term gains in personal security via “gun control” increasingly involves payment of a very high price: genocide. Yet, the link between “gun control” and the mountains of corpses resulting from “gun control” has been overlooked.
And finally, from the German Weapons Control Act of 11 November 1938 (BTW this was the basis, after subtracting the restrictions on Jew’s and Gypsies, for the United States Gun Control Act of 1968):
Jews are prohibited from acquiring, possessing, and carrying firearms and ammunition, as well as truncheons or stabbing weapons. Those now possessing weapons and ammunition are at once to turn them over to the local police authority.
Firearms and ammunition found in a Jew’s possession will be forfeited to the government without compensation.
The Minister of the Interior may make exceptions to the Prohibition in § 1 for Jews who are foreign nationals. He can entrust other authorities with this power.
Whoever willfully or negligently violates the provisions of § 1 will be punished with imprisonment and a fine. In especially severe cases of deliberate violations, the punishment is imprisonment in a penitentiary for up to five years.
For the implementation of this regulation, the Minister of the Interior waives the necessary legal and administrative provisions.
This regulation is valid in the state of Austria and in the Sudeten-German districts.
Berlin, 11 November 1938
