April 5, 1933

Executive Order 6102, signed April 5, 1933, criminalizes gold ownership. Gold certificates (that is, paper money redeemable in gold) are also confiscated. Because you see, my friends, when you're not buying what The Suits are selling, they send guys with guns. For your own good, of course.
