Why Jews Hate Guns
JPFO website ^ | May 9, 2012 | Alan Korwin and Rabbi Dovid Bendory

Posted on 05/09/2012 10:32:55 PM PDT by Neil E. Wright

It’s no secret that one of the largest blocs of people pressing for so-called “gun control” is the culturally (aka not-so-religious) American Jewish community. This confounds many observers who would expect that Jews, with such a stunning history of oppression and murder by humanity’s villains, would cling tenaciously to personal firearms and the ability to protect themselves as the Hebrew Scriptures instruct.

In reaction to the Holocaust, American Jews adopted the phrase “Never Again!” If actions mean anything, they don’t believe it. That’s for someone else to do. How do Jews expect to put teeth behind the words “Never Again!” if not with the ability to apply and project personal force when righteous -- and necessary -- for survival?

Why then do so many American Jews hate guns and fear gun ownership so much?

Our research identifies ten reasons why these Jews feel the way they do about self defense in general, firearms specifically and your own right to keep and bear arms.

What a pile of gobbledygook. Jews are liberals before they are Jews and even before they are Americans. There is a belief in a utopian state “of things”, and if an all-powerful government is required to enforce a utopian state, then so be it. Oops, that didn’t work out so well last time, did it? This type of short-sightedness is my own embarassment for my fellow co-religionists or whatever the word is.

I have never understood Jewish American Liberalism.

In Israel, they design good guns and don’t take no crap.

Besides a good percentage of American Jews embrace socialism, a mind set what caused many of them to end up in concentration camps, something I never could understand. I would have thought that perhaps by now most of them would have learned their lesson. I am not a Jew myself, but I am well familiar with their history and I like what a true Jew stands for and I always have and will continue to root for the Jewish State of Israel.

Here is the reason:

If you are looking for reason in gun control, there is only one that makes sense, for the left. The desire to strip others of guns is part of a plan to seize government and rule without the consent of the governed. It's not a Jewish fear of guns to wonder, it is a leftist pragmatic means to succeed. That's it. the only rational reason. All the rest is psychological mumbo jumbo.

The authors of the Second Amendment were very clear. They coupled two ideas. The right of the people to keep and bear arms and the necessity of a militia for a free state. It doesn't say anything about hunting or collecting antiques; it's about the distribution of power to the people. They saw the left and its many variations coming a long time ago.

8. Adulterated religion -- Jews In Name Only (JINOs)

The above section of the article is the heart of the matter. Korwin and the Rabbi still tip-toe around the real problem - the fact that in the United States, the *majority* of Reform Jews have abandoned their religion and supplanted it with "social justice".

Pro-LGBT, pro-abortion, pro-amnesty, anti-gun - it's all part of what now passes for their "faith". Take a look.

I hear you. Liberal Jews have this problem of embracing those who screw us and screwing those who embrace us. When I was growing up in the Bronx, registering as a democrat was as sacrosanct as Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and circumcisions. Back then being a dem meant something, We have nothing to fear but fear itself, The buck stops here, Ask not what your country can do for you. My parents switched parties around the same time Pres Reagan did, and for the reason, they didn’t leave the party, the party left them.

“it never ceases to amaze me to have to explain to a Jew why he should should have ready access to a firearm”

-a phrase I have used countless times when discussing gun control with workmates, friends, etc.

I am Jewish and you are going to be shocked at how many Jews are going to vote against Obama. It will be historical. Mark my words.

In Israel, Jews are fighting for their lives.

In the US, liberal Jews are fighting for their Brie.

Some of us are armed, pro-guns, and have used them, including my son in Iraq, my late editor’s son in Israel (KIA), and a whole bunch of Jewish soldiers in Vietnam.

As a Russian Jewish emigre’ once told me about those Jews who didn’t view the Soviets as our enemies, “We too have our asses.” That applies to too many American Jews re Iran, Red China, Hugo Chavez, and the Palestinians.

The leftism of liberal Jews and some conservative Jews is due mainly to the success of Communist propaganda in the US over the past 90 years. They convinced a lot of people who hated the Czar that communists were their saviors and a whole bunch of people bought it, hook, line, and sickle. And still do, esp. in academia.

However, some are finally waking up and the shift will be noticeable in November.
