So many misstatements one scarcely knows where to begin!

NOTE: Israel Hayom is the largest distribution newspaper in Israel and is owned by Sheldon Adelson of Newt Gingrich (and Mitt Romney) support fame.

Am I mistaken in saying, Israel also has quite the gun culture, do they not?

If Israel were to disarm their population, why I'd think they'd just be as helpless as they could be in the face of muzzie threats.

I dunno, the whole citizen “subject” thing just makes my skin crawl.

“In March of this year, three young Jewish children were gunned down at the Ozar Hatorah school in Toulouse. Just like Adam Lanza in Connecticut, Mohammed Merah shot children at close-range in Toulouse.”

I was under the impression that France has strict gun control laws. Am I missing something?

here’s an idea ... instead of banning guns... lets ban mentally ill people from walking free amoung us!!!!

reopen the mental institutions!!!!

guns don’t kill, mentally ill people who should of been locked up long ago do!

Again I say, ban the video games, technology is creating a void in this nation. We are becoming more and more detached, violent video games, texting, twitting and email, the human touch is going away. Enforce the gun laws we have, and the people will take care of the criminals when necessary.

Israel’s left, including Boaz Bismuth (probably not his real name), do indeed wish to unilaterally disarm Israelis!

in America, horrific and senseless mass killings are not unusual

This a-hole must never read a paper/ America is not the only country with mass killing or crazed killers.

One might wonder why Mr. Bismuth has to resort to Toulouse, France to find an example. One might wonder why Mr. Bismuth doesn't cite an example from Israel. Here's why

We would do well to emulate the Israelis. They've got a real good handle on protecting aircraft also.

http://www.mindlink.org/rights.html ~ this is all about the rules in Connecticut. Reading through them I gather the right to refuse care and to walk away from a mental institution or hospital is written in stone ~ no matter how dangerous you are.

Bismuth is being disingenuous and knows it.

Note that Bismuth is considered a right winger in Israel, spokesman and cheerleader for Netanyahu.

Most FReepers do not understand that a ‘conservative’ in Israel would not necessarily be a conservative in the USA.

In America, the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment has led to "a gun for every citizen." Originally, this was meant for defense.

And it's about time we be allowed to use it for that again......

You will never be to legislate against the evil in the human heart.

Someone who wants to kill someone is not going to be deterred by all the laws in the world.

The only way to stop someone with a gun is to stop him yourself with your own gun.

Guns save lives.

But the "right to bear arms" is facing great scrutiny at the moment.

Only by those who were seeking to eliminate it before Newtown ever happened, and only for the purpose of furthering their authoritarian agenda......

Ban NOTHING!!

Bring back the rope: final, swift, and sure.

Restore moral instruction to the schools.

And for God’s sake, restore sanity to our broken mental health system. My wife works at our state mental hospital, and the tales she tells would curl your hair.

Actually, Israel has pretty strict gun control laws for civilians. Look them up if you want.
