Sr. Fellow Stephen Halbrook, author of Gun Control in Nazi-Occupied France talks about his new book with Lars Larson on his nationally syndicated radio show. Halbrook's book tells how gun registration in France led to gun confiscation by the Nazis when they overran France in 1940. The government of France had previously required gun registration, which made it easier for the invading Nazis to disarm the French citizens. Halbrook also talks about the history of the right to bear arms in the United States on the 10th anniversary of the US Supreme Court's decision to allow individuals to arm themselves in the landmark Heller case in the District of Columbia.
