An interesting essay on the Weimar Republic.

The Fall of the Weimar Republic It is important to remember that the Weimar Republic began by registering private possession of firearms. When the Nazis took over, they used the Weimar lists, cross-referenced to their own lists of political opponents and classes of "untermenschen," to order their confiscation.

Been saying pretty much the same thing for years. Not that it had any impact on the 'audience'.

History repeats.

History doesn't exactly repeat but humans have a limited repertoire of responses in a given situation. The repertoire of governments is even MORE limited. In our case the government (regime?) doing the registering will be the same that effects the eliminations.
