Letter: Beware of I-594

France had gun registration. World War II arrived. Germany invaded France, obtained the registration lists, stormed through the country picking up arms, if denied ownership, or refused they were executed on the spot.

“To disarm the people is the best and most effective way to enslave them.” — George Mason

“The right to keep and bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government.” — Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey

The Second Amendment in the Declaration of Independence was written specifically in case the Government became corrupt and was seeking Dictatorial powers as happened throughout past history (a paraphrase of Thomas Jefferson).

Disarming the American citizen leads to tyranny and every home in United States will be open for invasion and robbery and more. Only the criminal will have a gun.

Initiative 594 is the first step of disarming the American citizen.

Richard C. Abell, WWII veteran
