Self Defense In Israel – “Never Again!”

israelI’d always believed that ISRAEL had very liberal gun laws.  Liberal as in classically liberal, e.g. open carry is ubiquitous, etc.  Turns out this was NOT the truth:

From Nikki

If you haven’t already heard, two pig-humping Paleoswine walked into a synagogue in Jerusalem, Israel today (posted November 18) and proceeded to murder five innocent people, including three U.S.-born rabbis. The sons of sows used meat cleavers, an ax, and a gun in their attacks in the Har Nof neighborhood of Jerusalem.

That’s right. They hacked innocent worshipers to death with meat cleavers. By the time police arrived and shot the two savages, several people had been hacked and/or shot to death.

Meanwhile, it was a rude awakening for Israel. As Y.B. ben Avraham explains at Zelman Partisans, it is an error to cite Israel as some sort of bastion of firearms freedoms. It isn’t.

While it is true that one sees young people, fresh from graduating high school, with select-fire rifles slung on their backs, and in Judea and Samaria it is a bit easier to obtain a community weapon or permit, in reality, the “freedoms” look much more like Chicago or NYC than say, Arizona. Everything is by permission, and licensure, and the restrictions have been getting much more restrictive and onerous, in practice, especially in the large metropolitan areas.

It took a massacre for Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch to announce an easing of restrictions on carrying weapons. Unfortunately, the epiphany is insufficient. The moderation in policy only applies to those who currently hold licenses, such as security guards and off-duty military officers. What about the rest of the defenseless would-be victims whose only recourse against ax- and meat cleaver-wielding sociopaths is to wait for a police officer to arrive? What about the innocent faithful, praying in a synagogue whose only hope is to wait for help to arrive?

The homicidal butchers gave Israel a wake-up call when they walked into that synagogue wielding implements of murder and proceeded to shed innocent blood. The massacre prompted the Public Security Minister to loosen gun regulations for license holders.

What will it take for the Israeli government to realize that their infringement on the natural rights of the people can end up in nothing but slaughter?

Have they forgotten?

Or are they channeling their rights-controlling brethren in Chicago and NYC?

It’s better to ask forgiveness than to get permission!  MAROONS ALL!

  2. Israel’s gun laws suck eggs. There are gun shop owners who DON’T have a permission slip to own a gun.
    Those ‘kids’ you see with M16s/M4s? Military.
    Unitl they pull their heads out of the sand, they reap what they sow…

    What about the rest of the defenseless would-be victims
    Exactly!!
