Israelis in the desert at a rave party completely unaware of Hamas fighters arriving on paragliders

I’m going to double down on what Miguel said yesterday.
This is why I am such a believer in gun rights and personal gun ownership.
In Israel, only active duty military have guns. Reservists and civilians generally do not. To obtain a gun permit as a civilian, you had to serve and reach, at a minimum, the rank of sergeant, which means you were career military. Simply doing the minimum requirement of two years isn’t enough to qualify.
As Hamas penetrated the border wall and started going door to door to murder and kidnap Jews, these people had no defense.
They relied too heavily on the border way and the military to protect them.
You are your last line of defense.
When every other system of security fails, you are in your own.
Yesterday proved that even the best systems of security will fail.
You need to be prepared for when that happens.
Not if, when.
My hope is that after this is over, Israel learns that and changes its gun laws.
I hope no Israeli civilian is ever unarmed again.
