The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) is conducting a search for a military rifle and a pistol that were stolen from a Jewish resident of Hevron who died two months ago, Channel 10 News reported on Thursday.
According to the report, while the family was sitting shiva (the seven-day Jewish mourning period) over the man, IDF representatives came by asking for the weapons that the deceased own, but soon discovered that the weapons were gone.
The ISAs Jewish Division, along with the IDF and the Judea & Samaria District of the Israeli Police has launched an investigation to find who stole the weapons and where they are.
The ISA reportedly said on Thursday that it is worried that the stolen weapons might fall into the hands of right-wing extremists.

The ISA reportedly said on Thursday that it is worried that the stolen weapons might fall into the hands of right-wing extremists.Y'know, because those pesky right-wing extremists are always lobbing missiles into schoolyards.
I am constantly amazed that people think that because a lot of Israelis have firearms, they have as much in the way of firearms freedom as we do. The truth is quite different - the government does allow many people to have guns, but it is definitely a privilege and a tightly-regulated one at that. This story shows the truth of this - the guy’s body was barely cold and the authorities were already coming around to collect his guns. FYI, owning 1 rifle and 1 handgun are the limit, and there’s no reloading allowed.
I would bet that one day after any real peace was declared, that all guns would be rounded up. Of course there never will be any real peace until the Moschiach shows up, but that’s a different matter altogether.
Mujahid Mouse says they are, so it must be true.
