    Hitler joins gun debate, but history is in dispute. @ AP My Way News, By ADAM GELLER

    After World War I, Germany signed a peace treaty requiring dismantling of much of its army and limiting weapons import and export. But many of the 1 million soldiers returning home joined armed militias, including a Nazi Party force that saw Communists as the leading threat.

    "Technically, they (the militias) were illegal and the guns were illegal, but a lot of government officials didn't care about right-wingers with guns taking on Communists," said David Redles, co-author of "Hitler and Nazi Germany: A History," a popular college text. By 1928, however, officials decided they had to get a handle on the militias and their weapons and passed a law requiring registration of all guns, said Redles, who teaches at Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland.
    William E. Riker, White Nationalist and founder of Holy City, California, was also ancestor of Captain William T Riker, CO USS Titan, UFP, and perhaps the source of his authoritarianism - that contrasted so well with Patrick Stewart's frenchified Captain Jean-Luc Picard.

    Riker was arrested in 1942 for sedition due to his support of Adolf Hitler whom Riker called "a second Martin Luther". A jury acquitted Riker who then sued his attorney Melvin Belli for defamation because Belli's successful defense was to present Riker as a "crackpot." Riker lost the suit.

    Damn, that was fun! Truly, you can find anything you want on the Internet, the virtual Alice's Restaurant.
