Gun Control in Germany, 1928-1945

A common belief among defenders of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is that the National Socialist government of Germany under Adolf Hitler did not permit the private ownership of firearms. Totalitarian governments, they have been taught in their high school civics classes, do not trust their citizens and do not dare permit them to keep firearms. Thus, one often hears the statement, "You know, the first thing the Nazis did when they came to power was outlaw firearms," or, "The first thing Hitler did in Germany was round up all the guns." One can understand why many American gun owners wantto believe this. They s.ee in the current effort of their own government to take away their right to keep and bear arms a limitation of an essential element of their freedom and a move toward tyranny, and they want to characterize the gun-grabbers in the most negative way they can. Adolf Hitler has been vilified continuously for the past 60 years or so by the mass media in America, and certainly no politician or officeholder wants to be compared with him. 1f the gun-confiscation effOI1can be portrayed convincingly as something of which Hitler would have approved, it will have been effectively tarred. This identification of the inclination to deny citizens the right to keep and bear arms with National Socialism and Adolf Hitler has been strengthened recently by clever magazine advertisements which show Hitler with his arm outstretched in a Roman salute under a heading: "All in favor of gun control raise your right hand." A Jewish group, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO), quite noisy for its size, has been especially zealous in promoting the idea that the current gun-control effort in America has its roots in Germany during the Hitler period. This group has gone so far as to claim in several articles published in popular magazines read by firearms enthusiasts that the current restrictive legislation being proposed by the U.S. government is modeled on a gun-control statute enacted by Germ any's National Soci al ist government: the German Weapons Law (WajJengesetz) of March 18, 1938. Again, one can understand the motivation of the JPFO. Many nonJewish firearms owners are well aware that the movement to restrict their rights is led and promoted primarily by Jews, and anti-Jewish feeling has been growing among them. They know that the controlled news media, which are almost unanimously in favor of abridging or abolishing the Second Amendment, are very much under the influence of Jews, and they know that the most vocal anti-gun legislators in the Congress also are Jews. It is natural for a group such as the JPFO to mount a damage-control effort and attemptto prevent anti-Jewish feeling from becoming even stronger among gun owners. Their strategy is to deflect the blame from their kinsmen in the media and the government and direct it onto their most hated enemies, the National Socialists--or at least to create enough smoke to obscure the facts and keep the gun-owning public confused. Unfortunately for those who would like to link Hitler and the National Socialists with gun control, the entire premise for such an effort is false. German firearms legislation under Hitler, far from banning private ownership, actually facilitated the keeping and bearing of arms by German citizens by eliminating or ameliorating restrictive laws which had been enacted by the government preceding his: a left-center government which had contained a number of Jews. It is not just that the National Socialist firearms legislation was the opposite of what it has been claimed to have been by persons who want to tar modem gun-grabbers with the "Nazi" brush: the whole spirit of Hitler's government was starkly different from its portrayal by America's mass media. The facts, in brief, are these: • The National Socialist government of Germany, unlike the government in Washington today, did not fear its citizens. Adolf Hitler was the most popular leader Germany has ever had. Unlike American presidents, he did not have to wear body armor and have shields of bulletproof glass in front of him whenever he spoke in public. At public celebrations he rode standing in an open car as it moved slowly through cheering crowds. Communists made several attempts to assassinate him, and his government stamped down hard on communism, virtually wiping it out in Germany. Between upright, lawabiding German citizens and Adolf Hitler, however, there was a real love affair, with mutua] trust and respect. • The spirit of National Socialism was one of manliness, and individual self-defense and self-reliance were central to the National Socialist view of the way a citizen should behave. The notion of banning fi rearms ownership was utterly alien to National Socialism. Tn the German un ivc rs it ie s , where National Socialism gained its earliest footholds and which later became it'>strongest bastions, dueling was an accepted practice. Although the liberal-Jewish governments in Germany after the First World War attempted to ban dueling, it persisted illegally until it was again legalized by the National Socialists. Fencing, target shooting, and other martial arts were immensely popular in Germany, and the National Socialists encouraged young Germans to become proficient in

these acti vities, believing that they were important for the development of a man's character. • Gun registration and licensing (for long guns as well as for handguns) were legislated by an anti-National Sociali st government in Germany in 1928, five years before

the National Socialists gained power.
Hitler became Chancellor on January 30,1933. Five years later his government got around to rewriting Lhe gun law enacted a decade earlier by his predecessors, substantially ameliorating it in the process (for example, long guns were exempted from the requirement for a purchase permit; the legal age for gun ownership was lowered from 20 to 18 years; the period of validity of a permit to carry weapons was extended from one to three years; and provisions restricting the amount of ammunition or the number of firearms an individual could own were dropped). Hitler's government may be criticized for leaving certain restrictions and licensing requirements in the law, but the National Social ists had no intention of preventing law-abiding Germans from keeping orbearing alms. Again, the firearms law enacted by Hitler's government enhanced the rights of Germans to keep and bear arms; no new restrictions were added, and many pre-existing restrictions were relaxed or eliminated. • At the end of the Second World War, American GIs in the occupying force were astounded to discover how many German civilians owned private fi rearms, Tens of thousands of pistols looted from German homes by GIs were brought back to the United States after the war. In 1945 General Eisenhower ordered all privately owned firearms in the American occupation zone of Germany confiscated, and Germans were required to hand in their shotguns and rifles as well as any handguns which had not already been stolen. In the Soviet occupation zone German civilians were summarily shot if they were found in possession of even a single cartridge. • Jews, it should be noted, were not Germans, even if they had been born

National Socialists had the intended effect: between 1933 and 1939 twothirds of the Jews residing in Germany emigrated, reducing the Jewish population of the country from 600,000 when Hitler became Chancellor in 1933 to 200,000 at the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939. Jews in the United States, looking at this period from their own narrowly focused view po int , have described these peacetime years of the National Socialist government as a time of darkness, terror, and regression, whereas for the German people it was a time of hope.joy, and spiritual and material renewal. Much the same type of distortion is seen in the portrayal of the United States in the early 1950s: the so-called "McCarLhy Era." Senator Joseph McMAUSER, Germany's foremost Carthy (Republican, Wisconsin) used manufacturer of rifles and pistols, ad- his position as chairman of the vertised its wares widely throughout Senate's Government Operations the National Socialist period. This Committee to expose the widespread Mauser ad is for "military. hunting, communist infiltration of the U.S sports, and self-defense weapons."

It should be noted in passing that the restrictions placed on Jews by the After Germany's defeat in the First World War (a defeat in which

Germany's Jews played no small part, demoralizing the home front with demonstrations and other subversive activity much as they did in America during the Vietnam war), the Kaiser abdicated, and liberals and leftists seized control of the government in 1918. Hitler, recovering in a military hospital from a British poison-gas attack which had blinded him temporarily, made the decision to go into politics and fight against the traitors he felt were responsible for Germany's distress. The tendency of Germany's new rulers after the First World War was much the same as it is for the liberals in America today: they promoted cosmopolitanism, internationalism, and egalitarianism. By 1923 economic conditions in Germany had become catastrophic, and there was much public unrest. The communists had made major inroads into the labor movement and were a growing threat to the country. Hitler had indeed gone into politics, and his National Socialists battled the communists in the streets of Germany's cities and gradually came to be seen by many patriotic Germans in the working class and the middle class as the only force which could save Germany from a communist takeover and total ruin. Hitler's National Socialists continued to win recrui ts and gai n strength during the 1920s. The communists, with aid from the Soviet Union, also continued to grow. The political situation became increasingly unstable as the government lost popular support. The government's response was to substantially tighten up restrictions on the rights of German citizens to keep and bear arms. The Law on Firearms and Ammunition of April 12, 1928, was the most substantial effort in this regard. This law was enacted by a left-center government hostile to the National Socialists (the government was headed by Chancellor Wilhelm Marx and consisted of a coalition of Socialists, including many Jews, and Catholic Centrists). Five years later, in 1933, the National Socialists were in power, Hitler

headed the government, and the communist threat was crushed decisively. The National Socialists began undoing the social and economic damage done by their predecessors. Germany was restored to full employment, degeneracy and corruption were rooted out, Jews and their collaborators were removed from one facet of national life after another, and the German people entered a new era of national freedom, health, and prosperity. Finally, in 1938, the National Socialist government got around LO enacting a new firearms law lO replace the one enacted by their opponents ten years earlier. The highlights of the 1938 law, especially as it applied to ordinary citizens rather than manufacturers or dealers, follow: • Handguns maybe purchased only on submission ofa Weapons Acquisition Permit (Waffenerwerbschein), which must be used within one year from the date of issue. Muzzle-loading handguns arc exempted from the permit requirement. [The 1928 law had required a permit for the purchase

of long guns as well, but the National Socialists dropped this rcquirerncnt.] • Holders of a permit weapons (Wuffenschein) or ing license do not need a Acquisition Permit in order a handgun. to carry of a huntWeapons to acquire

• A hunting license authorizes its bearer to carry hunting weapons and handguns. • Firearms and ammunition, well as swords and knives, may not sold to minors under the age of years. [The age limit had been years in the 19281aw.1 as be 18 20

• Whoever carries a firearm outside of his dwelling, his place of employment, his place of business, or his fenced property must have on his person a Weapons Permit (Waf[enscheini. A permit is not required, however, for carrying a firearm for use at a police-approved shooting range.

• A permit to acquire a handgun or may only be issued to persons whose trustworthiness is not in question and who can show a need for a permit. In particular, a permit may not be issued to:

1. persons under the age of 18 years; 2. legally incompetent or mentally retarded persons; 3. Gypsies or vagabonds; 4. persons under mandatory police supervision [i.e., on parole] or otherwise temporarily without civil rights; 5. persons convicted of treason or high treason or known to be engaged in activities hostile to the state; 6. persons who for assault, trespass, a breach of the peace, resistance to authority, a criminal offense or misdemeanor, or a hunting or fishing violation were legally sentenced to a term of imprisonment of more than two weeks, if three years have not passed since the term of imprisonment. • The manufacture, sale, carrying, possession, and import of the following are prohibited: 1. "trick" firearms, designed so as to conceal their function (e.g., cane guns and belt-buckle pistols); 2. any firearm equipped with a silencer and any rifle equipped with a spotlight; 3. cartridges with .22 caliber, hollow-point bullets. That is the essence. Numerous other provisions of the law relate to firearms manufacturers, importers, and dealers; to acquisition and carrying of firearms by police, military,

and other official personnel; to the maximum fees which can be charged for permits (3 Reichsmarky; to tourists bringing firearms into Germany; and to the fines and other penalties to be levied for violations. The requirements of "trustworthiness" and of proof of need when obtaining a permit are troubling, but it should be noted that they were simply carried over from the 1928 law: they were not formulated by the National Socialists. Under the National Socialists these requirements were interpreted liberally: a person who did not fall into one of the prohibited categories listed above was considered trustworthy, and a statement such as, "I often carry sums of money," was accepted as proof of need . The prohibitions of spotlightequipped rifles and hollow-point .22 caliber ammunition were based on considerations that the former were unsporting when used for hunting, and the latter were inhumane. Now read the German firearms laws for yourself, eitherin the original German exactly as they were published by the German government in the Reichsgesetzblatt or in the complete English translations which are provided here. If you want to skip over most of the legal gobbledygook and go directly to the most pertinent

partofthe National Socialist Firearms Law-the part pertaining to the purchase, ownership, and carrying of firearms by private citizens-tum to page 35 (Part IV of the Law). Note, as already mentioned above, that two separate and distinct types of permits are referred to: a Weapons Acquisition Permit (Waffenerwerbschein), requi red only for purchasing a handgun; and a Weapons Permit (W4ffenscheini, required for carrying any firearm in public. Interestingly enough, as also mentioned above, a hunting license could take the place of both these permits. When you have read the two laws reproduced here, you will understand that it was Hitler's enemies, not Hitler, who should be compared with the gun-control advocates in America today. Then as now it was the Jews, not the National Socialists, who wanted the people's right of selfdefense restricted. You will understand that those who continue to make the claim that Hitler was a gun-grabber arc either ignorant or dishonest. And you will understand that it was not until 1945, when the communist and democratic victors of the Second World War had installed occupation governments to rule over the conquered Germans that German citizens were finally and completely denied the right to armed self-defense. 0

§2 (1) Anyone who manufactures, modifies or repairs firearms or ammunition on a professional basis must obtain a permit. The refilling of cartridges is considered to be equivalent to the manufacture of ammunition. (2) The issuance as well as the revocation of a permit may not be made dependent on a determination of an applicant's need for the permit. (3) With respect to the construction of gunpowder factories or other facilities for the manufacture of ammunition, a permit in accordance with §16 of the Trading Regulations for the German Reich remains mandatory. §3 The order by means of which a manufacturer's permit is denied or revoked may be appealed in accordance with the regulations governing protests against police orders, as these regulations are set out in the legal codes of the German Lands. In cases where these regulations do not provide for proceedings in Administrative Court, or do not admit such proceedings in

the case in question, the regulations set out in §§20 and 21 of the Trading Regulations for the German Reich apply instead. §4 If a permit has been conclusively denied or revoked, a new application for a permit may be filed only after at least three years have passed since the conclusive decision was made known.

Part III Deal.ing in Firearms and Ammunition
§5 (1) Anyone who, on a professional basis, purchases, offers for sale, or otherwise provides to others, either firearms or ammunition, or acts as mediator in the purchase or provision of such items, or offers his services to effect their purchase or provision, requires a permit to do so. (2) The regulations of § 2 Section 2 and §§ 3,4 apply as appropriate. §6 A permit in accordance with § 5 may not be issued to 1. junk dealers, 2. persons specified in §16 Section 1 Clause 2; exceptions may be made in accordance with § 16 Section 3. §7 (1) Dealing in firearms is prohibited 1. to travelling vendors, 2. at festivals, events featuring shooting competitions, and fairs, with the exception of trade fairs. (2) The selling and provision of ammunition required at shooting competitions is exempted from the regulations of Section 1 No.2. §8 Public and private pawn shops are not permitted to lend money on firearms and ammunition. §9 (1) Beginning six months after this Act comes into force, only such firearms as bear the name or registered trademark of the manufacturing firm or the dealer (§5) and which bear a serial number may be professionally sold or provided to others within Germany. (2) Firearms not identified by the name or registered trademark. of a domestic manufacturer must be marked with a manufacturing number and the name or registered trademark of a domestic dealer.

2. the export of firearms or ammunition directly out of the country. In the context of the present regulation, this includes the following: a) the customs zones, with the exception of Helgoland and the customs zones of Baden, b) the foreign trade zones, c) the trade zone of Lubeck; 3. the conveyance of firearms and ammunition by persons who, as part of their profession, arrange for or conduct the transport of goods, particularly by haulers, carriers, ocean shipping agents, the Postal Service, or the Railway. §11 The following do not require a Weapons or Ammunition Acquisition Permit: 1. authorities of the Reich or the Lands as well as the German Reich Railway Association; 2. community authorities whom the highest authority of their Land has granted the right of acquisition without an Acquisition Permit; 3. the professionals specified in §5 who are officially licensed. §12 Holders of Weapons Permits do not require Weapons Acquisition Permits for weapons included in the scope of the Weapons Permits. §13 Holders of Weapons Acquisition Permits or Weapons Permits do not require Ammunition Acquisition Permits to acquire the ammunition needed for the weapons in question. §14 Anyone who acquires firearms or ammunition by inheritance must report this to the proper authorities withi n six weeks of the date of acquisition. This report must detail the kind and number of firearms and ammunition, and-in the case of gunpowder-the weight. §15 (1) Anyone who carries a firearm outside his home, his place of business, or his fenced-in property must carry an official permit (Weapons Permit) on his person. "Carrying a firearm" does not include its use on shooting ranges officially licensed by the police. (2) Provided that its validity is not expressly restricted to a smaller area, the Weapons Permit is valid throughout the Reich proper. Through an appropriate notation on the permit, the right to carry a firearm can be restricted to certain, clearly specified occasions and locations. (3) A Weapons Permit is valid for a period of one year from the date of issue, provided that a shorter period is not specified. §16 (1) Weapons (Ammunition) Acquisition Permits may only be issued to persons whose trustworthiness is not in question; further, Weapons Permits may only be issued on proven need. In particular, permits may not be issued to 1. persons under the age of 20 years; 2. legally incapacitated or mentally inferior persons; 3. Gypsies or vagabond persons; 4. persons who have been legally sentenced to a term of imprisonment of more than two weeks for violations of §§81, 83 to 90, 105, 106, 107, 107a, 110 to 120, 122, 123 Section 2, §§124 to 130, 181 a, 211 to 216,223 to 228, 240, 241,243,244, 249 to 255,292 to 294, 296, 340, 361 Nos. 3, 4, 5 and 10 of the Penal Code, of § 148 of the Federal Customs Regulation of July 1, 1869 (Federal Law Gazette p. 317), of the law against the criminal and dangerous use of explosives, June 9,1884 (Law Gazette of the Reich p. 61), of the Ordinance of the Council of People's Representatives regarding the possession of weapons, January 13, 1919 (Law Gazette of the Reich p. 31 , 122), of the law regarding the disarming of the people, August 7, 1920 (Law Gazette of the Reich p. 1553), of §§1, 2, 4 to 7, 8 No.3, § 19 of the Law

Part IV Purchase, Carrying, Importation and Ownership of Firearms and Ammunition
§10 (1) Firea.r~s or am~.~nition may ~e provided or purchased only on submission of a Weapons or Ammunition Acquisition Permit Issued by the appropriate authorities. (2) The acquisi!ion perm.it .is valid for the period of one year from the date of issue, provided that a shorter penod of validity has not been specified on it. (3) Section 1 does not apply to: . 1. the provi~ion of firearms or ammunition at shooting booths or ranges licensed by the police, where the firearms and ammunition are to be used on-site only;

14

15

forthe Protection of the Republic, July 21, 1922 (Law Gazette of the Reich I, p. 585), or of the stipulations of the present Act-provided that five years have not yet passed since the sentence was served, lapsed, orwas remitted; if the sentence was remitted after a probationary period, the term of five years is calculated from the start of the probationary period; 5. persons under mandatory police supervision or who have been relieved of their civil rights-for as long as these remain under mandatory police supervision or remain stripped of their civil rights; (2) The highest authorities of the Lands may decree that violations of state [Land] penal codes are to be considered equivalent to violations against the federal [Reichjlaws set out in Section 1 NO.4. (3) Exceptions to Section 1 Nos. 1, 3 and 4 may be granted on request by the relevant authorities. §17 (1) Persons to whom a Weapons (Ammunition) Acquisition Permit or a Weapons Permit may not be issued, in accordance with § 16 Section 1 Nos. 1 to 5, are also not permitted to possess firearms or ammunition, unless an exception has been granted under § 16 Section 3. (2) Persons who are not entitled to the possession of firearms or ammunition shall without delay hand in any firearms or ammunition in their possession to the appropriate authorities for safekeeping; they shall be given a written acknowledgement of receipt. If a person to whom this regulation applies has a legal representative, the responsibility to comply rests with the representative. If this person or his legal representative does not ensure that the firearms and ammunition become available to a person entitled to their possession in the spirit of the present law by relinquishing to such a person the right to claim return of the items in question, the authorities responsible can require that ownership of the firearms and ammunition be transferred to themselves [the authorities] instead, in return for the payment of their market value. Transfer of ownership is effected by means of notice being given. An appeal against the determined market value may be addressed to the supervisory authority within two weeks; recourse to legal action is not an option. (3) The authorities responsible may, in exceptional cases, permit persons obliged by law to hand in their 'firearms and ammunition to retain possession of these items if the facts of the individual case guarantee that the objects will not be misused; such permission can be withdrawn at any time. §18 (1) The Weapons (Ammunition) Acquisition Permit is to be revoked and confiscated by the authorities responsible if the prerequisites for its issue are not met, or are no longer met. (2) In the case of revocation of a permit, the authorities responsible may demand that the firearms and ammunition be turned in at the same time. The stipulations of §17 Section 2 apply as appropriate. §19 (1) With respect to the firearms or ammunition provided to them in the line of duty, the following persons do not require a Weapons (Ammunition) Acquisition Permit: 1. members of the German Wehrmacht, police officials in the service of the Reich or the Lands, as well as border patrol and customs investigation officials employed with the Financial Administration of the Reich; 2. government officials or employees whom the Reich or Land authorities responsible have granted the right to carry 'firearms at specifically defined instances in the line of duty, or to whom this right isgranted by legal provisions. In such cases, the Weapons Permit is replaced by an appropriate license or certificate, issued by the superior or supervisory authority. . (~) If firearms or ammunition are not officially provided to persons specified in Section 1, or If firearms other than those officially supplied are required, the superior or supervisory

departments are authorized to issue certificates entitling these persons to purchase or carry a firearm. §20 (1) If the legal provisions of a Land admit the levying of fees for issuing Weapons Acquisition Permits or Weapons Permits, the amount of these fees will be determined by the guidelines set jointly by the government of the Reich and the Reich Council. (2) No fees are to be levied for issuing an Ammunition Acquisition Permit. §21 (1) An annual hunting license issued by a German Land authorizes its owner, throughout the German Reich and for the period of the permit's validity, to acquire hunting weapons and handguns to the number indicated on the license, as well as to acquire ammunition for these hunting weapons and handguns. (2) A hunting license issued by a German Land authorizes its owner, throughout the German Reich and for the period of the permit's validity, to carry hunting weapons on occasions of hunting, game protection and shooting practice, as well as on the return trips involved in these activities. A hunting license authorizes the carrying of a handgun in the same scope and manner. §22 (1) Importation of firearms or ammunition is permitted only with a Weapons (Ammunition) Acquisition Permit (§10), a Weapons Permit (§15) or a hunting license (§21), and only to the extent to which these permits authorize the acquisition of firearms or ammunition. (2) This regulation does not apply to importation by the authorities and professionals specified in § 11 , §23 (1) Official authorization is requi red for the possession 01 weapons or ammunition stores (Section 2) not belonging to a professional enterprise sanctioned by this Act (§§2. 5) and not in the possession of one of the authorities set out in §11 Nos. 1 and 2. Only such persons whose trustworthiness is in no way in question may be authorized. § 16 Section 1 Clause 2, Sections 2 and 3 apply as appropriate to the granting of such authorization; §§17, 18 apply as appropriate to its revocation. (2) A weapons store is defined as a stock of more than five firearms of one and the same kind, an ammunition store as a stock of more than one hundred cartridges. For hunting weapons, a weapons store is defined as a stock of more than ten hunting weapons, an ammunition store as a stock of more than one thousand hunting cartridges. §24 (1) Manufacturing, dealing, importation, carrying, or possession offirearms which have been specially designed to be rapidly disassembled beyond the measure usual for hunting and sports purposes, or which are concealed in canes, umbrellas, piping or in similar ways (so-called poachers' guns) is prohibited. (2) Further, manufacturing, dealing, importation, carrying, or possession of firearms equipped with a device to silence the report of a shot, or with rifle spotlights, is prohibited. This ban also extends to these modifying devices in and of themselves. With respect to the manufacture of such weapons or devices for export purposes, exceptions may be granted upon request.

Part V Penal Laws
§25 (1) Anyone who, in deliberate or negligent violation of the present law,

16

17

1. manufactures, modifies, repairs, lends money on, acquires, otters for sale, makes available to others, mediates in the acquisition or making available to others, imports or possesses weapons, ammunition or the devices described in §24 Section 2, 2. carries firearms, or 3. fails to file, or to file in time, the notice which it is incumbent upon him to file in accordance with §14, will be penalized with up to three years' imprisonment and/or a monetary fine. (2) Over and above this penalty, the weapons, ammunition or devices to which the punishable act in question relates may be confiscated regardless of whether they belong to the offender or not. If no specific individual/s can be prosecuted or convicted, confiscation of the weapons, ammunition or devices may be carried out without these concomitants. §26 Anyone who, deliberately or through negligence, fails to prevent a person under the age of twenty years, who is a member of his household and subject to his supervision, from violating the present Act by manufacturing, modifying, repairing, lending money on, acquiring, offering for sale, making available to others, mediating in the acquisition or the making available to others, importing or possession offirearms, ammunition orthe devices specified in §24 Section 2, or by carrying firearms, will be penalized in accordance with §25 of the present Act. §27 (1) A monetary fine of up to one hundred and fifty Reichsmark or a term of imprisonment applies to anyone who deliberately or through negligence violates the juridical stipulations for the enforcement ( §28) of the present Act. (2) Anyone who deliberately violates the regulations set out in Section 1 after having been twice previously convicted for deliberate or negligent violation of the same will be penalized with a term of up to one year in prison and/or a monetary fine. This regulation does not apply if more than three years have passed since the last conviction prior to commission of the new offence.

(2) A criminal offence as detailed in § 25 Section 1 No.1 occurs if one month lapses following the coming into force of the present law, or, if a permit was applied for within this period, at the end of one month after this permit was definitely refused. §31 In the case of persons who, at the time this law takes effect, possess firearms or ammunition without being entitled to such possession under the present law, a punishable act in accordance with §25 Section 1 No.1 occurs six weeks after this law has taken effect. §32 The manufacturing and trading enterprises specified in §§ 2, 5 are subject to the usual trading regulations insofar as no special regulations have been set out in the present Act. §33 The stipulations of the law governing the peace agreement between Germany and the Allied and Associated Powers, July 16, 1919 (Law Gazette of the Reich p. 687), as well as the juridical regulations and orders issued for its implementation by the government of the Reich, remain unaffected by the present Act. §34 (1) This law will take effect on October 1, 1928. At the same time, the Ordinance issued by the Council of People's Representatives on January 13, 1919, (Law Gazette of the Reich p. 31, 122) is repealed. (2) With the exception of hunting licenses, the permits issued under regulations heretofore in effect and which authorize the acquisition of firearms or ammunition or the possession of firearms become invalid not later than six months after the present law takes effect.

Part VI Final and Interim Regulations
§28 The regulations required for the enforcement of this Act will be issued by the government of the Reich, with the agreement of the Reich Council. In particular, the government of the Reich may issue regulations pertaining to the manufacture of firearms and ammunition, to dealing in such objects, and to the conduct of business, especially records-keeping, by such professionals as are set out in §§2, 5. Further, it may admit of exceptions to the regulations of the present Act which govern certain kinds of firearms or ammunition. §29 (1) The individual Lands may not impose farther-reaching restrictions to the manufacture, dealing, acquisition, carrying and possession of firearms and ammunition. This also goes for such firearms and ammunition for which exceptions are permitted in accordance with §28 Clause 3. (2) Any restrictions of the kind specified in Section 1 which are in effect at the present time will cease to be in force at most six months after the present law takes effect. §30 (1) Anyone who, at the time this law takes effect, carries on business activities which require a permit in accordance with the present Act (§§2, 5), or who possesses a weapons or ammunition store requiring a permit in accordance with §23, must apply for a permit within one month from the date on which this law takes effect.
