NRA Lobbyist: Anti-Gun Jews Supporting Polices That Will Create Another Holocaust

A top lobbyist for the National Rifle Association says that Jews that support gun control measures are helping to usher in another Holocaust.

NRA chief Washington state lobbyist Brian Judy went after Seattle businessman Nick Hanauer last week after his family pledged half a million dollars to a campaign targeting the gun show loophole in the gun sale law.

“He has put half-a-million dollars toward this policy, the same policy that led his family getting run out of Germany by the Nazis,” Judy asserted at a meeting last week to protest Initiative 594.

“It’s like, how stupid can they (be) – you know?” Judy mockingly asked. “Now, he’s funding – he’s put half-a-million dollars toward this policy, the same policy that led to his people getting run out of Germany by the Nazis.”

“You know, it’s staggering to me, it’s just, you can’t make this stuff up,” Judy continued. “That these people – it’s like any Jewish people I meet who are anti-gun, I think: ‘Are you serious? Do you not remember what happened?’”

“And why did that happen?” Judy asked. “Because they registered guns and then they took them. And now you’re supporting gun control – you come to this country and you support gun control. Why did you have to flee to this country in the first place? Hello? Is anybody home there?”

In response to his statements, the Jewish Federation of Seattle released a statement saying, “Eight years ago, the Jewish Federation was the target of a violent attack by an individual harboring falsehoods about Jews – falsehoods that continue to exist on the fringes of our society. It is deeply offensive for anyone to suggest that Jewish supporters of gun violence prevention have ‘forgotten’ the history of our people.”
