In recent years there have been several mass casually attacks at places were Jews congregate.
The Tree of Life Synagogue shooting.
The Chabad of Poway shooting.
The Mosney, New York, Hanukkah stabbing.
Now this hostage crisis in Colleyville, Texas.
I’ll even add in the New Jersey Kosher Market shooting. It was not a house of worship but it was a place where Jews frequented.
If you attend a Synagogue in a shall issue state or locale, where it is legal to carry in a house of worship, and your Synagogue is a gun free zone, ask, demand to know why they will not allow Jews to be armed.
Every Synagogue should be requesting volunteers of the congregation to be armed during services.
I will say this about Churches in Red states, they are armed and defended.
In 2017, a gunman killed 26 and wounded 22 at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.
Two years later, when another asshole attacked a church in White Settlement, Texas, he shot two before an armed worshiper blew his brains out the side of his head with a 357 Sig.
The Churches I knew in Alabama at the time responded by arming up even more, having armed volunteers outside as well as inside.
Why on God’s green earth does the Jewish community not emulate that?
If it’s legal to carry in a Synagogue in your state, demand the right to do it and encourage every responsible Jewish adult to do it.
