‘Not safe anywhere now’: American Jews are flocking to gun training classes

David Kowalsky, owner of Florida Gun Store, teaches Mendy Duchman gun safety and proper ways to handle a firearm at Kowalsky’s gun range in Hollywood, Fla., on Friday. Duchman knows Kowalsky through their synagogue, Shul of the Lakes, and approached him about getting his firearm training done. Kowalsky said local synagogues had reached out to him to host gun training seminars and shooting sessions in the past week.

The deadly terrorist attack in Israel and the torrent of social media threats that followed have forced many American Jews to reconsider their long held stances against owning or using guns.

Firearm instructors and Jewish security groups across the country say they have been flooded with new clientele since Hamas assaulted Israel on Oct. 7. And gun shop owners in Florida say they have seen more Jews purchase firearms in recent weeks than ever before.

“We’ve definitely seen a tremendous increase in religious Jewish people, Orthodox people, purchasing firearms,” said David Kowalsky, who owns Florida Gun Store in the town of Hollywood, and also offers firearms training classes. “I’ve seen a surge in interest in individual training as well as group training.”

It’s about damn time.

If there is one silver lining from watching the Islamic world and Western Progressives publicly celebrate their fanatical Jew hatred, it’s that it opened the eyes of so many Jews.

The hatred has been there for a long time.

Many Jews refused to see it or didn’t believe it.

Now it’s impossible not to see how much they hate us and what the magnitude of the threat it.

I’m glad to see more and more Jews arming up.

Never again means it and the only way to ensure that is with the force of arms.

  1. And a good number of them are going to find out just how difficult their preferred political party makes it to own a firearm.

    But will they learn that lesson?

    1. My jaded/black pilled world view says they won’t. A good number of people from that political party during the Coofid scamdemic and the summer of “fiery but mostly peaceful protests” found out that:
      (1) They could not “borrow” a gun from a friend/family member who had previously armed up and, likely, been chided as being a gun nut/conspiracy theorist/racist/all of the above because of the politicians and referendums they voted into place.
      (2) The training requirements/waiting periods/etc. meant that even though they “needed” a gun right now, they could come back in 2-15 days and maybe they’d get permission from the overlords to buy one. Maybe.
      And, even after learning that, they still voted people who were hostile to that very into/back into power and, likely, turned their guns in to a buyback in the name of “doing something”.
      Now, a lot of those people don’t have centuries worth of people wanting them wiped off the face of the earth so maybe the lesson will stick. I have some Jewish friends from my time down in Broward/Miami-Dade who were so far left that Che would have gone, “Damn, a bit much.” The personality change I’ve seen from them this month was pretty quick to the right. Whether it sticks or not, who knows.

      1. @ragnar_d: ” I have some Jewish friends from my time down in Broward/Miami-Dade who were so far left that Che would have gone, “Damn, a bit much.” ”

        Sadly, that doesn’t surprise me.

        Many Jews seem unable or unwilling to learn from history.

  2. “Many Jews refused to see it or didn’t believe it.”

    Oh, I think they saw it and believed it, but never thought that hatred would apply to them personally because they were “Good Jews” who voted the right way and said the right things on Facebook. They thought the hatred was only for Hasidic Jews in Brooklyn and Netanyahu voters.

    I imagine a good many of the people killed at the trance festival for peace uttered last words along the lines of “But I’m on your side!”

    Not all….but not zero.

    The realization that the crocodile will not, in fact, eat them last has come.

  3. Liberals will never realize how self destructive their liberalism is until they suffer the consequences of it. Sometimes, one cannot give their opponents any “benefit of the doubt” and should assume their enemy really means it when they say they want you dead.
    When it comes to islam, hamas, and the modern American left, they do want the Jews dead. Jews will receive none of the tolerance and acceptance they are giving muslims. Yet they continued to act like hamas was civilized..
    Contrast the religions. If a muslim wanted to see what is happening with Judaism, they would be welcomed. Come to a service, let’s talk about the Talmud, etc… but if a Jew was interested in seeing the interior of a mosque, they would be barred entry. But, let’s pretend muslims are tolerant, m’kay…
    The difference between a radicalized muslim terrorist and a moderate muslim is the radical terrorist is beheading babies, the moderate muslim is filming it and doing nothing to stop it.

  4. The head of the Safety & Security team at my current synagogue sends out emails to the team to ensure armed coverage for services. (They got a police detail for the “day of jihad. Cool guy.)

    My old synagogue, where I was ejected for carrying a gun, had a vigil. Problem solved? 8>)
