A gun dealer in Colorado Springs, Colo., has offered a free AR-15 rifle to local temples for protection following the mass killing of 11 Jews at a Pittsburgh synagogue by an anti-Semitic gunman.
Mel Bernstein, owner of Dragon Arms, told Fox News on Sunday that four local rabbis in Colorado Springs took him up on his offer and a fifth accepted the offer of a handgun.
I feel very bad that someone can walk in to a synagogue or church and start shooting and they cant protect themselves, Bernstein said.
He said each rabbi filled out a background check. ..."
I dont really like whats going on in the country and Im offering them a free AR-15 rifle with two magazines and hundred bullets, he told the station.
The station reported interviewing the president of one local synagogue about Bernsteins offer.
I think he wants to help and is very well intentioned, Jeff Ader of Temple Beit Torah said. It just isnt for us.
He said the AR-15 was, in a sense, a weapon of mass destruction.
If it can fire multiple rounds per second, anything can happen and my fear is that innocent bystanders get in the way and innocent people get hurt, he said.
The station reported that Ader was in talks with Bernstein over choosing a handgun instead.
Scott Levin of the Colorado Anti-Defamation League told the station that a rabbi with a gun causes image issues. He said he felt it would be a disruption.
Bernstein, who is Jewish, told Fox News he had gotten calls from rabbis around the country asking about his offer, but he said he couldnt ship guns to them because theyre out of state.
I cant supply every rabbi because Id be out of business, he said.
