Posted on 01/27/2013 9:35:17 PM PST by Nachum
With a basis in § 31 of the Weapons Law of 18 March 1928 (Reichsgesetzblatt I, p. 265), Article III of the Law on the Reunification of Austria with Germany of 13 March 1938 (Reichsgesetzblatt I, p. 237), and § 9 of the Fuhrer and Chancellor's decree on the administration of the Sudeten-German districts of 1 October 1928 (Reichsgesetzblatt 1, p. 1331 ) are the following ordered:
Jews (§ 5 of the First Regulations of the German Citizenship Law of 14 November 1935, Reichsgesetzblatt 1, p. 1332) 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 if 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
Minister of the Interior
Tell me again about "senseless violence"
You probably know Wilhelm Frick was hanged by the allies for crimes against humanity in 1946. His neck and face were found to be badly lacerated and bruised when his corpse was inspected after the hanging. Authorities at the time blamed it on a “botched” hanging. Politicians of today should learn well from history.
See my personal page on the links to Nazism in this country.
Wow. Guess the necessary legal stuff wasn't so necessary after all.
Actually the Army sergeant in charge of doing the hanging kind botched all of them up. Ribbentrop, Jodl, Kietel and the others basically choked to death and took sometime before they croaked. Not that it matters, good for them, Nazi scum. I think it was because they basically used ‘’housing line’’ as it was called then, that’s an old-fashioned hemp rope about an inch or so thick. Great for tying up ships but doesn’t do too good for snapping necks. Interesting too that the Nazis enacted this law the day after ‘’Kristallnacht’’. Kick the crap out of the poor Jews and then take their guns away.
C210N: You summed up the Obama/Holder legal strategy for the US, “The necessary legal stuff wasn’t so necessary after all”. Like the CONSTITUTION.
Substitute HOLDER for FRICK and OBAMA for HITLER and it all makes sense.
Now go to Lenin/Trotsky/Derzhinsky’s laws on gun ownership after the Russian Revolution of 1917 and see the comparisons.
Then substitute Holder for Derzhinsky and Obama for Lenin/Stalin. Same, same, coming to a court near you, soon.
Makes one wonder if the book The Boys from Brazil was a true story?.
