Posted on 05/22/2014 1:39:10 PM PDT by Olog-hai
At a heated Knesset debate Tuesday, MK Moshe Feiglin (Likud-Beytenu) accused the supporters of legislation limiting the carrying of firearms by citizens of a deliberate move to limit citizens ability to defend themselves against nationalistic and criminal threats.
The Knessets Interior Committee convened under the chairmanship of MK David Tzur (Hatnua), was presented with data according to which, in the course of a decade, 12 women had been murdered by their spouses with licensed guns11 of them with guns held by security guards in institutions and businesses.
The bill would require gun holders to be checked by a psychologist every six years, and would also make it possible for a social worker to present an opinion regarding the dangerousness of a person, thus preventing him from carrying a weapon.

If there is any place on Earth one would think concealed (or open) carry were absolutely necessary, that place would have to be Israel.
Notice that the guys with the openly carried pistols are not worried about someone seeing that they are armed, and shooting them first?
I wonder why?
Yes, that is sarcasm directed at the naysayers of the open carry activists.
Indeed, but they like us are plagued by a large liberal contingent.
Are those police? they aren’t Heer and don’t look like they are wearing SS sleeve eagles. Also the Waffenrocks appear to be police pattern. They must be somewhere outside of the Reich.
The gun controllers presume that none of the murdered women would have been killed by other means if their spouses had lacked guns.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Israel, in the British tradition, has highly restrictive gun laws.
Hatnua is among the most liberal of that contingent. Their psychotic leader, Tzipi Livni, has recently supported the right of the government to release mass murderers in the future for the sake of the piece process. Perhaps MKs ought to be examined by a psychologist every six years.
Good point. I'm in MS where it has been less than a year since open carry has truly been OK. I usually choose to stay concealed, but have periodically allowed my weapon to be seen to gauge public reaction. So far, just a couple quick double takes, but nobody has panicked or called the cops.
My biggest issue with open carry is that if someone "feels threatened" and calls the cops, you can pretty much bet on being at least inconvenienced, and if they opt to tell tales about "brandishing" etc., you might be more than inconvenienced. Because of this, I have been giving the Public an opportunity to get used to seeing the occasional weapon on someone's hip.
