Elena Kagan Wants Me Dead

The Wall Street Journal online has published a PDF of a presidential directive draft on banning importation of semiautomatic firearms that Elena Kagan co-authored with Charles F.C.Ruff in 1997. In it her she and Ruff advocated "...enforcing the statutory restrictions on importation of firearms that do not meet the sporting purposes test" to restrict the importation of "assault-type" rifles (note the loaded language) that has been sporterized by removing "...certain military features without changing their essential operational mechanism."

The so-called "sporting purpose" test originated with the Nazi Weapons Act of March 18, 1938. The law was used to disarm "undesirables" like Jews and homosexuals. Finding out which Jews had firearms was unfortunately not difficult because the Firearm Law of 1928, passed by the Weimar Republic, required extensive police records on gun owners.

On November 8, 1938 the New York Times reported that the Berlin police were disarming the Jews.
The Berlin Police President, Count Wolf Heinrich von Helldorf, announced that as a result of a police activity in the last few weeks the entire Jewish population of Berlin had been "disarmed" with the confiscation of 2,569 hand weapons, 1,702 firearms and 20,000 rounds of ammunition. Any Jews still found in possession of weapons without valid licenses are threatened with the severest punishment.

Once disarmed the Jews were powerless to resist the events of the of Nov 9 to 10 ,1938 now known as "Kristallnacht". Jewish stores were destroyed, synagogues set on fire and Jewish homes were searched for firearms and valuables. Adult Jewish males were arrested and, in the event of resistance, were shot immediately.

No one disarms you unless he (or she) wants to be able to do something you might try to stop if you still had that power. So, Elena Kagan, who do you want to put in the boxcars? I no longer have any illusions that I can expect fairness or justice from the international socialist state. I think you and your Master want me dead.
