Letter about Skare letter to the editor


Fri, Apr 19th, 2013
Posted in Harmony Letter to the Editor



To the Editor,

Mr. Rod Skare accuses contributor Yvonne Nyenhuis of being historically uninformed. Talk about a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black! Mr. Skare, Hitler wasn’t a Polish Corporal: he was an Austrian Corporal, serving in a Bavarian regiment. Neither Hitler or Stalin confiscated all weapons from their citizenry. This is one of many right wing myths. The Weimar Republic, a democracy established in Germany after WW1, enacted strict gun regulation in order to curb street violence, pitched battles between private political armies. In 1928 conservatives took power and relaxed gun laws. In 1938 the Nazis further relaxed gun laws. His claim that they ran over confiscated weapons with a tank is simply silly.

The only weapons German tanks rolled over were discarded weapons dropped by fleeing enemy soldiers in the face of the Blitzkrieg! Soviet laws regarding guns were quite lax, excepting urban areas. In the Soviet “outlands” subsistence hunting and fur harvesting were important industries. The irony is most of the old Western democracies have strict gun regulation, and also a minuscule murder rate compared to the gun slingin’ USA!
