Campaign for Liberty members in the Bay Area may want to attend “Are There Lessons for Us Today From Nazi Gun Control?” this Thursday at the The Independent Institute’s Conference Center, 100 Swan Way, Oakland, CA 9462. The event will feature a talk by constitutional attorney and leading scholar on the history of gun rights, Stephan Halbrook.
Mr. Halbrook will discuss his book, Gun Control in the Third Reich: Disarming the Jews and “Enemies of the State”, which uses recently uncovered documents from German archives, diaries, and newspapers of the time to show how the Nazi regime gradually eroded the rights of Jews, and other “enemies of the state,” in order to facilitate their consolidation of power and oppress their enemies.
The event starts at six p.m. pacific time, with a reception and a book signing. Mr. Halbrook will be speaking at 7 p.m. Admission is $15 for Institute members and $20 for non-members. Members who pay $35 and non-members who pay $40 will receive a copy of Gun Control in the Third Reich: Disarming the Jews and “Enemies of the State.”

Campaign for Liberty Chairman Ron Paul provided the following endorsement of Mr. Halbrook’s book:
“Stephan Halbrook’s Gun Control in the Third Reich provides a stark example of why defenders of liberty must oppose any attempts to limit our ability to defend ourselves from private and public criminals. Halbrook’s work is especially timely since so many in Washington are once again trying to convince the people they have nothing to fear from gun registration and other infringements on our Second Amendment rights.”
