Miguel sent me this:
My mom worries because I wear a Jewish Star necklace — she knows that me being openly Jewish puts my life at risk.
The only time I get worried is when I see someone openly carrying a gun. My first thought is always the same, does he hate Jews & can he see my necklace. #DisarmHate https://t.co/sGs1QJeQ6F

I understand her fear of going out in public being openly Jewish.
Her fear that every person open carrying is Leftist prejudice and stupid.
I read the article in the Shannon Watts subtweet. It has nothing to do with guns.
In a nutshell, what is says is that most antisemites attack Jews who are easily identified as Jews, i.e., wear Yarmakules have sideburns, etc. Most Jews don’t dress that way so most antisemitic attacks are concentrated on a smaller percentage of Jews who antisemites can easily identify.
Watts took that and added the “unfettered access to arsenals” herself.
The thing is, most antisemitic attacks in the US are neither from the stereotypical “white supremacist” or with a gun.
Just follow some of the NYC Shomrim accounts:

The antisemitism the Left dare no speak it’s name.
The reality is antisemitism will never go away.
After six thousand years, we better get used to that.
It can be lessened but never eliminated completely.
All we can do is be vigilant against it.
The idea of disarming hate so Jews can live peacefully disarmed will never work.
Just ask the Jews of Israel who are run over with cars or stabbed with kitchen knives, or the Jews of France and Germany where synagogues are attacked with molotov cocktails, or the Jews of New York who get punched in the face.
The reality is that we need to be armed too. To be ready to meet force with force and repel violence with violence.
Being anti-gun doesn’t make her any safer and by embracing the Leftist stereotypes of who an antisemite is, she compounds her danger by ignoring all the other threats that don’t fit her narrative.
