In any debate, it’s generally not a good idea to invoke Nazism. The first one to do that generally loses. Godwin’s law and all that. But that doesn’t always mean the underlying argument is without merit.
In 1941, Congress passed the Property Requisition Act. The government, in anticipation of war, authorized the government to take certain property from industry. The one thing the law specifically forbade was gun registration, thus reaffirming Second Amendment rights.
Today, gun registration and prohibition schemes are described as benign, progressive, and “commonsense.” We are told that the government is inherently good and there is nothing to fear. The records will remain in “the right hands.”
We heard these words a century ago in the Weimar Republic. It is the Second Amendment that stands in the way of the Weimar Republic- American style. It is not some relic of the 18th century. It is what separates the United States from tyranny. It is also what keeps history from repeating itself.
