Jews Forbidden to Possess Weapons
By Order of SS Reichsführer Himmler
Munich, November 10 
The SS Reichsführer and German Police Chief has issued the following Order:
Persons who, according to the Nürnberg law, are regarded as Jews, are forbidden to possess any weapon. Violators will be condemned to a concentration camp and imprisoned for a period of up to 20 years.
Never forget how that turned out.
So the question is, who gets to say what kind of life preserver you get to have?
