Jews and Guns

Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership

I’ve been to Israel: I’m well aware that there are Jews who both pack and use heat. I used to live down the street from the 76th Precinct in Brooklyn, where they had a beat cop who wore a beard and tzitzis. But I have to tell you, I hadn’t known about these people. I hadn’t known about their spiritual director, either.

Rabbi Dovid Bendory, Rabbinic Director of the JPFO

“Jews – and always remember, we are a tiny minority – live safely in America under the beneficent protection of Righteous Gentiles,” he reminds us. “Endorsement of ‘gun control’ by Jews in positions of power fuels American anti-Semitism unlike any other issue…..Ignore the supposed ’causes’ of anti-Semitism – an irrational hatred of Jews regardless of who we are or what we do. What can I say to a Gentile who mistrusts Jews on this specific issue of ‘gun control’? If that protection evaporates, and especially if Jews purposefully and willfully keep ourselves disarmed, we are in grave danger.

There is only one way to live by the declaration ‘Never Again’: gun-hating Jews must repent of their naïve foolishness. We must encourage all Righteous Americans, Jew and Gentile alike, religious or not, to exercise their right to firearms ownership. And we must somberly embrace the resolve to use those arms in righteous defense should that horrific day ever come, G-d forbid.”

I should buy a gun, in other words, lest my goyische neighbors put me and my family in an oven. And if that doesn’t work, I can always shoot them! Guns come in handy too, the good rabbi points out, when you’re confronted by a Flash Mob of angry black youths.

All I can say is, it’s a good thing I don’t own a gun. If I did, I’d be tempted to turn it on myself.

  1. This seems like the latest trope in a long line of tropes that the 2nd Amendment folks have tried to use over the years; it is the idea that if Hitler had not imposed gun control, the Jews would be able to use their gun rights to fight the Holocaust.

    Right. Sure.

    If you’re a Jew, your neighbor is going to go, “oh, well, HERR Juden, my bad!” He won’t come back with his buddies, all of whom carry.

    I can’t stand 2nd amendment gun tropes in general, but this one’s just too stupid for the reasons we’ve both given.
