A letter from Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership to the NRA
When former President George Bush resigned his membership in the
National Rifle Association he cited the rhetoric about "jack booted
government thugs" in a fund raising letter as the reason. The NRA was
perhaps referring to tactics that the BATF has used in the past that may
be similar to the tactics used by Nazi Storm Troopers.
Jews For The Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO) has the FACTS
that will support the NRA's rhetoric we hope they will use our research
materials. Our letter to the NRA follows and the JPFO Board hopes that
all law abiding firearms owners will urge the NRA to use JPFO's research
materials to DESTROY "gun control".
Our letter follows:
May 12, 1995 SENT VIA CERTIFIED MAIL
RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED
Dear: Ms. Tanya Metaksa, Mr. Wayne LaPierre, Mr. Thomas L.
Mr. Neal Knox
National Rifle Association
May this find you well. In recent weeks the NRA has referred to
government agents, such as those of the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and
Firearms (BATF) as "jack booted government thugs"; the reference was
apparently a comparison to Adolph Hitler's Nazi Storm troopers. It was
this comment that made former President George Bush resign his
membership in your organization.
JPFO, has documentary proof, published in "Gun Control Gateway To
Tyranny" that the Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA '68) was likely based on
the Nazi Weapons law of 1938. We published both laws side by side for
comparison. Subsequently we discovered that the late Senator Thomas Dodd
(D-CT) actually had his own copy of the Nazi Weapons Law of 1938 while
he was drafting GCA '68. It is a matter of public record that the late
Dodd owned the original German text of the Nazi Weapons law of 18 March
1938. There is in the record of hearings on S3691, S3604, S3634 and
S3637, 26 - 28 June, 8-10 July 1968 a letter to Dodd from Lewis C.
Coffin Law Librarian Library of Congress enclosing a translation of the
Nazi Law, "as well as the Xerox copy of the original German text which
you supplied". Our findings were published in the May 1993 issue of Guns
and Ammo (copy enclosed). The American Rifleman barely acknowledged
this in their review of "Gun Control Gateway to Tyranny".
If the NRA is serious about destroying "gun control" and putting the
media on the defensive you will immediately begin to use our research
If however, you refuse our offer you will keep "gun control" alive and
then we will just have to assume that you are only interested in the
privilege of duck hunting (for as long as you are allowed to) but not
the right to keep and bear arms.
Very truly yours,
Aaron S. Zelman Jay E. Simkin Alan M. Rice
