Fropm Rob Morse’s What we Should Learn from the Attack on Israel | SlowFacts:

I know that about 100-thousand Israelis (archived source outside the paywall) applied for a permit to own a firearm in the last few weeks. For perspective, that would be the same proportion as 3.7 million US citizens applying for their carry permit in two weeks. Again for perspective, that 3.7-million is between the population of Connecticut and Oklahoma. Only 1.5-percent of Israelis were allowed to own firearms while US firearms ownership is about 25-percent. In contrast, 4-out-of-10 of US citizens live in a home with someone who owns a firearm.


The easy way? What we call Constitutional Carry. You are in a state of constant warfare and the last thing you need is going from a slow process to a full stoppage because bureaucracy is still up and running and the machine is more important that the individuals.

  1. The gun grabbers will not doubt start using this to push gun restrictions…” look, Israel is in the middle of a war and they don’t have an armed population “….
    We have 27 states that are Constitutional Carry and more coming..

  2. You have to remember that Israel is, and has always been, a socialist country. The early Zionists were also socialists. I’m a Jew and stand with Israel unconditionally, but that doesn’t mean I support everything the government does.

  3. Israel may be a Jewish State, but there are a significant number of Arabs Muslims, Christians, and Druze living in Israel. These Israeli minorities have all the same rights as the Jewish Israelis, and are even elected to the Knesset. Arming only Jewish Israelis and not everyone else will be a huge issue.

    It would be like the United States arming only the Whites, but not the Blacks, Hispanics, or Native Americans. I think we tried that in the early years of the US, and ended up fighting each other resolving over that issue.

    What’s the answer? I don’t know, but all the citizens of Israel need to decide their answer.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
