All those who believe that "gun control" measures won't touch them please raise
their hands. Those who raised their hands should, please, leave the room. That
which I have to say does not apply to you, and I don't want to waste your time.
Those of you still here know that the NRA's strategy - of compromise - is
failing, fast, or at the very best is not working as intended. Rather than
appeasing the "gun grabbers", offers of compromise on more "gun control" whets
their appetite for more "gun control" measures.
Some of you have figured out that the strategy based on compromise is FATALLY
flawed. Some of you may even have figured out that unless the NRA changes its
strategy, the law abiding firearm owner in America will go the way of the Jews
in Nazi occupied Europe: extermination.
This strategy will continue to fail because it is based on one wrong assumption.
Bad assumptions are the Mother of all screw-ups. The FATALLY bad assumption is
that some forms of "gun control" -e.g., the "instant check" are, or can be, a
socially useful policy, or at least not socially harmful. This is wrong. Dead
"Gun control" is an extremely destructive policy. It helped clear the way for
Nazi ascendancy in Germany. As a result, 13,000,000 people were murdered;
2700/day, each day that the Nazis were in power (30 January 1933 - 7 May 1945).
In the 12 member countries of the European Union, it would take about 400 years
for that number of people to be murdered, assuming that Europeans were as
inclined to commit murder as are a tiny minority of Americans, and if they did
nothing to restrain the murders.
For the NRA to mobilize the bulk of the population, it must as a matter of great
possible urgency - abandon the policy of compromise on "gun control". The NRA
must be bold and aggressive. It is not enough to focus on leading "gun
grabbers". It is essential to attack the concept of "gun control", to show that
this is a blood drenched concept, that has no place in any civilized country.
The NRA must turn its back on its 60 years of trying to reach a compromise with
the "gun grabbers". To that end, the NRA should:
dump the notion that the Second Amendment has ANYTHING to do with hunting: there
is nothing at all wrong with hunting, but that is not the reason that the
Second Amendment was written (if there were nothing in America left to hunt,
the civil right to own firearms would still be necessary);
go directly to the public via bill-boards, newspaper adds, radio adds, TV adds,
etc., and shift money away from lobbying law-makers, who mainly seek free
tell the American public that their local police force does not have - and never
had - a duty to protect the average person, according to the U.S. Supreme Court
and state Supreme Courts or Courts of Appeal;
that such a duty cannot exist because we cannot possibly have enough police
officers; the cost would bankrupt us, and so large a number of police officers
would extinguish freedom itself;
make the point that the concept of "gun control" is alien to U.S. jurisprudence;
emphasize that if criminals' misdeeds are used to define the freedoms of the
law-abiding, then America will shift from being a democracy to a criminocracy,
to a country ruled by the tiny, vicious minority;
stress that there is strong evidence that "gun control" in America has Nazi
roots, i.e., as JPFO's research has shown that "sporting purpose" was almost
certainly lifted from the Nazi's Weapons Law of 18 March 1938;
tell the American public that the biggest murderer, by far, in this century has
been governments "gone bad", and that the information age makes it easier for
governments to commit mass murder;
that U.S. troops would not be needed in Haiti, Somalia, Rwanda, and Yugoslavia to
prevent, or end, mass murders if each of these countries did not have "gun
control" under which the average person there was disarmed. In summary, the NRA
must tell its members, Americans, and the World that there is a down-side - a
very evil down-side - to "gun control". The down-side is rule by criminals. At
best, rule by criminals, means that freedoms of the law abiding are chipped
away. At worst, rule by criminals who seize control of a government, means
mountains of corpses - millions of corpses - as was the case in Nazi Germany.
Among these 13 million corpses were the 7 million Gentiles. The Holocaust was
never a wholly Jewish event, although were specific targets of Nazi fury.
To those of you who are inclined to think, "It can't happen here", I would point
out that just over 50 years ago, America took all but the final step of a
genocide. On 19 February 1942, President Roosevelt signed Executive order 9066.
Under this order - later backed by the U.S. Congress - a small minority,
Japanese-Americans - was sent to concentration camps, and held behind barbed
wire fences by machine gun toting guards. Few of these people had done anything
wrong. Yet all were deprived of homes, businesses, and most of their personal
possessions. The U.S. Supreme Court approved (Korematsu v. U.S., 1944).
Unless and until the NRA attacks the concept of "gun control", and shows that
"gun control" is a very evil public policy, "gun control" will prosper. And the
NRA, and its members will, slowly, be erased.
You have a choice. You can behave the same way as Jews in Nazi Germany and Nazi
occupied Europe. Like the Leaders of Jewish Community Councils (Judenrat), you
can sacrifice some members of the community - the elderly, the chronically
sick, etc.- to try to save others. You will be asked for more concessions;
children below the age of ten. A slice at-a-time, the "gun- grabbers" will ask
you for more.
By not putting before your members, and the American people, the Nazi roots of
"gun control" in America, you have contributed to the enactment of the Brady
Bill, and most recently, the ban on "military type" firearms.
When will you rise and fight? Will you wait until "sporting firearms" larger than
.22 are banned? Will you wait until black powder firearms are banned? Will you
wait until shooting ranges are zoned out of existence?
The choice is yours; You can turn your back on a failed strategy - one of
compromise with evil-doers - and attack the concept of "gun control" by
exposing the Nazi roots of "gun- control" in America. Or, you can persist in a
failed strategy, and accept your own extinction.
Please share this speech to the NRA Board of Directors withas many people as
you possibly can.
