I appreciate that you read it.

I dont know what a 'crib note' is,but if we were to make it short and sweet-

I would say that the most important part of the whole thing is the fact that there is a proven link between the author of the Gun Control Act of 1968 and the Wiemar Republic gun control laws that were abused by Nazi Germany to disenfranchise their subjects -and their millions of victims- of arms,and the glaring similarities between the two sets of laws-these show the GCA68 to be a grave threat to liberty and possibly even innocent life.

I was looking around to see if my article had been used outside Cheaper Than Dirt! Saw it here and decided to give some light on the creation of the article. I wrote it in 2008.

I retired from Lockheed Martin Ft Worth in 2007 and saw a want-ad for a tech writer and firearms expert at CTD. Being local, I sent them a short blurb on my background. Got the job! First five months were doing data entry keyboard work. I told Tenney that I was pretty bored and thinking of going back to retirement. Things changed quickly after that conversation. I started writing articles, which is what they hired me to do. I did around 13 articles before I had enough of the same silly stuff that went on out at Lockheed Martin. It's the same in the work world all over, I suppose. I had to endure it a LM, but not at CTD! Guess I should have stayed on, but sometimes it just gets to me.

I started out with the intention of telling how the NRA had been complicent in the creation of quite a few anti-gun legislations, plus the idea that the GCA 68 was based on Nazi gun control laws afrom the 30's. It morphed into more than that after I did research, and that's where LBJ came into play. It took me 2 weeks of study and writing to complete that article.

As the poster said, it is long, but that was what was needed to tell the whole story. LBJ is the biggest crook in that time period. I take my nom de plume of LBJ because I have been accused of looking like him, not because I am an anti-gunner. ha. If I were any more right wing, I'd be KKK. Ha

Hope you enjoy the article. I wrote another article for CTD I really like on Sgt Alvin York. It was a new series I came up with called Great American Riflemen. I finished one more story in that line under the title of Audie Murphy. both great Americans.That's about it for now. Just thought I'd chime in. Both articles are on the CTD website under ARTICLES.

To start-thank you for a GREAT article!

I hope your not offended,but I literally post this in as many places as I can,and while this has been talked about on many different forums and is common knowledge in many 2nd Amendment savvy circles,your article is the best dissertation on the subject matter I have ever come across.

It draws an irrefutable historical time-line and uses factual comparison to prove that the GCA68 is nothing more than transplanted foreign law,from a former enemy,being applied to our nation and used against our people by our own government.

This article needs to be spread far and wide.

Every American needs to know this.

Being Jewish,I take particular interest in the fact that the GCA68 is pretty much a verbatim copy of the same kind of 'gun control' that was used by Adolph Hitler to deprive his victims of arms with which they might be able to have at least a fighting chance against the evil regime of National Socialist Germany,rather than being hustled to the gas chambers stripped of all human dignity and worldly possessions, accompanied "by the sounds of lovely classical music" as Fabian Socialist George Bernard Shaw stated.

Without a framework of registration and gun control prior to the reign of the Nazis,perhaps there would have been more armed uprisings like the Warsaw Ghetto,and perhaps,had the Wiemar Republic not handed the tyrannical Third Reich the tools of gun confiscation,those uprisings that did occur would have been a bit more effective.

Perhaps.

Perhaps without a ready list of registered weapons and their owners,Hitler himself might have had a second thought about marching people off to camps,not knowing what resistance he might face he might have had to seriously consider the consequences of trying to commit mass murder against an armed populace.

Perhaps,with the recent 'wins' for Second Amendment rights,Heller and McDonald,we can now shift focus to the repeal of this onerous law,but it starts by FIRST educating the public as to exactly where this law comes from-our former enemies in Europe.

It starts by making people face the fact that American police and the American justice system,quite contrary to the letter and spirit of Constitutional law,are literally enforcing laws that Adolph Hitler himself found useful in depriving his enemies of their God given,inalienable right to self defense and the tools that best facilitate that goal.

Your article goes a long way to doing just that.

I hope you don't mind,but I'd like to continue to use it as much as possible for that purpose.Its time we made the anti-gun zealots face the fact that their ideology is also favored by tyrants,despots,and oligarchs the world over for enforcing the most brutal aspects of their regimes-making their enemies helpless by law and then murdering them en masse.

Its time to make Americans of all walks of life understand that it may not be happening now,but the tools of registration and the current 'gun control' laws as copied practically word for word from the Wiemar laws were used to facilitate the disarming of millions of victims of the Holocaust,to make the jobs of their murderers less dangerous.If we allow this law to remain,it makes it all the more likely that it CAN happen here.

Americans should NEVER have tolerated such an act to be passed.

Its time to repeal GCA68 and give the BATF the boot.No more Nazi laws enforced by jack booted thugs on American soil!

Josh, I appreciate your comments!

The article went WAY LONGER than I ever imagined. Things kept popping up that I felt needed to be added and it started taking on a life of its own. If I was going to do it, I decided to do it right. That's what they were paying me to do. I even told the boss that the article might step on a few toes in the process.

As I mentioned, I started out with the idea of using the JPFO's premise (others have made the assertion also) that the Nazi Gun Control Laws were the basis of our gun laws. They only fleshed that idea out so far. But it needed MUCH more to develop the idea that more was involved than just the Nazis to get it across the Atlantic Ocean. Seems we had some American Nazis at work on the law - Dodd and LBJ to be exact. Sorry if there are those who don't like to hear that, but what other conclusion can you draw?

I laid it out in about as much detail as you can get without writing an entire book about it. My intro statements were not the ones planned, the story just drove them. In fact, the few intro ideas I started with went into the round file in the end. I am not agenda driven, I just let the facts take me along. I did have an idea of what I wanted to discuss as all such articles have to have a starting point, but again, never knew it would be this involved.

Funny thing is that I was a teenager in 1968 and a Sophomore in H.S. I must have been alseep, because I never knew LBJ was such a tyrant and gun grabber till I did the research.

It came out to about 22 printed pages as I recall.

For my real job, I spent 25 years writing flight manuals for USAF fighter aircraft built by GD/LM such as the F-111, F-16, YF-22, and F-22. Good work, but as I mentioned in an earlier post, the BS involved in the work-a-day world can drive you up the wall. I couldn't wait to get out at age 55 in retirement. Wow, what a relief.

I urge the Congress to make it unlawful to sell rifles and shotguns--as well as hand guns--to persons who are too young to bear the terrible responsibility that is placed in the hands of a gun owner.

This kills me ! I guess Johnson forgot about the 18 and 19 year old boys he sent to go fight in Vietnam ? It's okay for a soldier that is 18 to have a rifle, but not an 18 year old civilian ! Double Standard if you ask me ! What a Hippocrite ! Worst president this country ever had !

Thumbs up Wow

Is there any place I could get a printer friendly version of this? I have some well meaning but less than computer savvy friends that really need to see this.

My suggestion would be to copy each part of it to notepad,and print it from there.

JPFO also has a book about it.You could make a nice holiday gift of it:

"Gun Control": Gateway to Tyranny

Thanks Josh and LBJ.

A very similar timeline has been circulated for about 20 years that I know of, by JPFO (Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership).

It can never be read too many times, or given to too many people.

And I REALLY look forward to the Wilson stuff.

Just dropped in to give this a bump.

Also to add something new.Whenever you get into an argument about the second amendment and exactly what it entails on a forum or whatever,feel free to cut and paste this-

Quote:
THE SECOND AMENDMENT(2A)-

Does not say that it is a right reserved by only a government approved 'law abiding' class.

Individual,inalienable rights are a condition of our humanity,just like possessing a soul or a consciousness.And just as the government does not have the divine power to deprive us of our souls or our immortal cognizance,it does not have the power to "take away" rights bestowed upon us by a higher authority than government- Our Creator.

"The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, and this without any qualification as to their condition or degree, as is the case in the British government."
-St. George Tucker,Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England (1803)



2A Does not say that it is subject to "reasonable regulation".

“The people... shall have the right to keep and bear arms; and they need no permission or regulation of law for the purpose.”-Thomas Cooley,Treatise on Constitutional Limitations,1868



2A Does not deny ownership of any type of personal arms to any 'class' or person.
Rather,it CLEARLY stipulates that the government SHALL NOT INFRINGE on the right of the people to keep and bear arms.

"It will be found an unjust and unwise jealousy to deprive a man of his natural liberty upon the supposition he may abuse it."-George Washington

"The whole of that Bill [of Rights] is a declaration of the right of the people at large or considered as individuals...[I]t establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of."
-Albert Gallatin to Alexander Addison, Oct 7, 1789, MS. in N.Y. Hist. Soc.-A.G. Papers, 2.



The Second Amendment does not assert that it is a government approved privilege to CARRY or to BEAR those arms.The junior-G-man CCW permission slip scheme does not enforce,enhance,or otherwise comply with the Second Amendment.
IT IS NOT A GOOD THING.
Rather,it enforces the status quo that going armed requires government approval.

"Americans [have] the right and advantage of being armed, unlike citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust people with arms."
-James Madison



THE SECOND AMENDMENT-

Is an individual right.It is written to defend the inalienable,human right of self defense from predators and the right to defend Liberty from an overbearing government.

The Second Amendment was,in fact,crafted to include the right OF THE PEOPLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES AGAINST TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT.

"The beauty of the second amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it." -Thomas Jefferson

"The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good"
-George Washington

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." -Thomas Jefferson



THE SECOND AMENDMENT IS THE LAW.It is and has been a part of American tradition and justice since our founding as a nation.Since before then even.

"The constitutions of most of our States assert that all power is inherent in the people; that... it is their right and duty to be at all times armed."
-Thomas Jefferson to John Cartwright, 1824.

It is part of the HIGHEST LAW OF THE LAND.

"This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the constitution or laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding."-Article VI, Clause 2,Supremacy Clause,US Constitution



THE SECOND AMENDMENT CLEARLY STATES THAT IT SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.IT IS CLEARLY WRITTEN IN PLAIN LANGUAGE ALONG WITH THE HIGHEST LAW OF THIS LAND THAT GOVERNMENT MAY NOT VIOLATE THIS INDIVIDUAL RIGHT. THEREFOR,ANY AND ALL ACTS OF CONGRESS,OR GOVERNMENT AS A WHOLE,TO HAMPER,DENY,CLASSIFY,REGULATE -OR OTHERWISE INFRINGE- UPON THE SECOND AMENDMENT IS ILLEGAL.
WITHOUT PROPERLY AMENDING THE SECOND AMENDMENT BY FOLLOWING THE LAWFUL PROCESS AND PROCEDURES AS DESCRIBED BY THE CONSTITUTION TO AMEND IT- ANY AND ALL 'GUN CONTROL' IS ILLEGAL.



"......that whensoever the general government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force....."-Thomas Jefferson,Kentucky Resolutions of 1798

"Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law', because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual."
-Thomas Jefferson

"Anyone in a free society where the laws are unjust has an obligation to break the law."
-Henry David Thoreau
