1938 gun control mandate
Placeholder Image

Dear Editor,
After World War Two, an Attorney, Thomas Dodd, was assigned as an Assistant Prosecutor at the trials of Hitler’s henchmen at Nuremberg.
One aspect of the Nazi agenda Dodd liked was the 1938 gun control mandate. The laws passed helped make it possible for the slaughter of 6 million Jews and millions of other “undesirables”.
In 1968, after the shooting deaths of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Senator Thomas Dodd sponsored the 1968 Gun Control Act modeled almost word for word after Adolph Hitler’s 1938 Gun Control Mandate.
History has a way of repeating itself. Will we learn from it? Probably not.
Thank You
John P. Fitts
