"All too many of the other great tragedies of history—Stalin’s atrocities, the killing fields of Cambodia, the Holocaust, to name but a few—were perpetrated by armed troops against unarmed populations. Many could well have been avoided or mitigated, had the perpetrators known their intended victims were equipped with a rifle and twenty bullets apiece, as the Militia Act required here. . If a few hundred Jewish fighters in the Warsaw Ghetto could hold off the Wehrmacht for almost a month with only a handful of weapons, six million Jews armed with rifles could not so easily have been herded into cattle cars."  Silveira v Lockyer, (9th Cir. 2003) (Kozinski, J. dissenting.)

 Proposition 63 on California's ballot measures offers a sneaky attempt at disarming law-abiding citizens. Under the guise of regulating ammunition and preventing terrorism, it provides a back door, authoritarian plan to ultimately disarm law-abiding citizens.

Proposition 63 makes the claim that background checks and registration for ammunition sales would prevent another terrorist attack like San Bernardino. The fact is, the guns used by these terrorists were legally purchased by individuals who passed background checks. Gavin Newsom, author of Proposition 63, uses the double speak phrase “common sense” gun control and shows his ignorance about the dark history of registration and restriction of ammunition. 

We at Jews Can Shoot provides that history lesson.

Before Adolf Hitler initiated the worst of his plans for exterminating Jews in Europe, he started with the sly approach of stripping Jews of their rights.

Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto were, with great difficulty, able to obtain a small number of weapons. Ammunition was much more difficult and it was ammunition that posed the real threat to the Nazis. The answer was obvious: take the ammunition, render the guns useless and leave the Jews defenseless.

Sounds just like the approach of those hell bent on disarming law-abiding citizens: when they cannot be so obvious as enacting direct confiscation of our guns, they will restrict our ability to load our guns.

This sinister effort is also known as Proposition 63.

The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising was a remarkable story from World War II of bravery against impossible odds. Heinrich Himmler planned for two months to give Hitler the gift of a Judenrein (“Jew-free”) Warsaw. 

At the same time, the Polish Home Army gave 50 low-quality revolvers, 50 hand grenades, and four pounds of explosives to the Jews in Warsaw. This allowed a few hundred Jewish fighters to hold off the Wehrmacht’s vastly armed forces for almost a month.

Against these odds, the Nazis were stymied by these Jews for an astonishing period of time. 

When the Jews ran out of ammunition, they were quickly overtaken by the Nazis. 

People question if the Holocaust would have happened and how much more improbable it would have been for the Nazis to kill millions of Jews if their right to bear arms had not been infringed on under Hitler's false claims of "safety".

We, at Jews Can Shoot, firmly believe that if there was an equivalent for our Second Amendment rights in Europe, the war could have been stopped sooner and countless lives spared.

We know how it starts. We know how it ends.
We are soft targets no more.

Because Nothing Says Never Again Like an Armed Citizen.
