The 'Jews in the Attic' Test

In recent days the federal government has unleashed a barrage of new laws, proposals, and policy initiatives that beg the question, "Does this pass the 'Jews in the attic' test?"
The test is the idea of gun-rights advocate Joe Huffman, who in 2009 suggested that any new law, proposal, rule, or policy initiative of government should be forced to pass the 'Jews in the attic' test before being implemented. In a nutshell, the test asks the question, "Will this law make it difficult or impossible to protect innocent life from a government intent on their imprisonment or death?"
During the Nazi occupation of much of Europe prior to and during WWII, untold numbers of Christians and other concerned persons engaged in harboring, hiding, and arranging for the safe passage of Jews who were being hunted down by the Nazis throughout Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, France, and other Nazi-dominated areas of the continent.
