Before 1938 only Americans had a Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Still, one could buy a gun in European countries–especially the ones that still owed Americans money from the previous World War. A German was arrested for espionage in the U.S. even before Austria was joyously incorporated into the Third Reich by popular vote.

Shortly thereafter, with French officials already persecuting Jews to appease German belligerence, an oppressed youth bought a pistol, walked into the German Embassy and shot Ernst Vom Rath to death in a classic Jew Kills Nazi turnabout of Man Bites Dog. Unamused by the unequal but apposite reprisal force, Hitler’s government promptly passed Commonsense Gun Control forbidding Jews to own guns and smashed out all store windows in a Kristallnacht of violence to drive home their peaceful intentions. So peaceful were christian nationalsocialist intentions that when America joined the war three years later, atomic bombs were at the top of our to-do list.

But the following pages gave the year as 1946!
The only remaining mystery is… whatever happened to the real January 7, 1945 Prescott Evening Courier?
