Here is the problem of unintended consequences will all these people. The youth of america is becoming less and less familiar with firearms and hunting.

I am sure that you knee jerk liberals will say good! Not so fast there sparky. We have seen too many US Soldiers injured or killed on the battle field specifically because of unfamiliarity with weapons. As well as lacking the clear and untrainable instinct only learned from hunting. How to stalk and kill a target. You don't like that fact well neither do I but we are in a war and that is the way it is.

If you think I am wrong then you need to review just one of many troubling incidents in both Iraq and Afghanistan to understand. Take a hard look at what happened to the 507th Maintenance Company (these were regular Joes and Janes not Seals or Rangers) or the tank commander from Mountain View, KIA because someone did not understand how to make safe a M240, or another in March 2003 where soldier from Buffalo, New York was killed when someone with no clue handled a weapon.

These politicians are making your country more dangerous and in the world today where there are many that wish to kill us for only our religious beliefs I find these people out of touch and out of their mind.

Responsible people first.

As a Jew, I do find it sort of disheartening that some my fellow Jews, and certainly some high-profile seem to happily and naively get on the gun control bandwagon. However, I think its unproductive and dangerous to go around grouping people the way your post and that website does, as if all Jews think and act alike. It only perpetuates the false but pervasive idea that shady Jews are conspiring to control the world.
Ever heard of Jews for the preservation of firearms ownership?
Ever heard of Sandra Froman? She's from the Bay Area, graduated from Stanford, and went on to be the president of the NRA from 2005 - 2007. She's openly Jewish, by the way.
Finally, Diane Feinstein was almost killed by Dan White, so I think she's earned the right to voice her opinion on guns, even if many people including myself disagree.

LOL - didn't the Protocols of the Elders of Zion preach gun control?? It's a vast international gun grabbing conspiracy by the Tri-Lateral Commission! And the Jewish-controlled US media!

Seriously, Editors, do you really want to allow linking to statements like "Apparently it's okay for Jews to possess guns, just not Goyim cattle."

??? I think she's earned the right to voice her opinion on guns, even if many people including myself disagree.

Dianne Feinstein's position on gun ownership is the most perplexing of all. She desires prohibiting all firearm ownership for ALL - EXCEPT for herself. She has and still to this day possess a permit under by the USMS to possess a firearm on her person anywhere at all time. Even after Dan White, the person that threaten her is long since DEAD?

Then there is this: "If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them, Mr. and Mrs. America, turn 'em all in, I would have done it."
Senator Dianne Feinstein, CBS-TV's 60 Minutes, February 5, 1995

Her position has nothing to do with her being Jewish it just Brings to mind an old saying: Do as I say not as I do.

Ask yourself. Do you trust the government to protect you? Consider that in the light of the continuing events in Palo Alto with people willing to use even garden shers to commit acts of violence in the quest for fulfilling their own needs over your right to be free.

Well said, all. The original post is clearly yet another attempt to spread "the Jews are trying to control the world" crap. No censoring, please! This stuff has to be in the light for it to burn up.

As for Jed Cooper's post. Dead on. I simply cannot understand anyone relying on government to be effective or efficient at anything, including protecting us. The only govt entity that comes close is our military, and even that has bureaucratic ineffeciencies.

Never let you guns go. It is the last defense against totalitarianism.

Not So Fast,

As if Jews are the only people who want America to control guns? Where have you been?

Anyone who argues to loosen handgun controls is out of their mind. Just look at the statistics of handgun deaths in America, vs. everyplace else on earth.

Editor, I am also favor letting this post stand, to shed light on ignorance and prejudice, so that everyone can see that it lurks in even the most privileged of communities.

Mike, I have to say, yours is right up there with the original post.

To make it clear..look at the statistics of handgun deaths in states with looser gun "controls" versus states with rigid gun "controls".

Right to Carry states( easy to get a permit, easy to carry concealed) are safer than higher gun control states.

Please let all posts stand. I love the generalizations in this thread..about Jews, about those of us who want to loosen gun "control" laws.

The JDL has the right idea with their slogan "Never again!"
It was the Jewish respect for and confidence in law that brought them to the Holocaust. I have occasionally quereied of a politician who proposes another gun restriction that they take a pledge, to do away with all personal and official protection except for reliance on 911. So far, no takers. Police chiefs who advocate trigger locks on home defense weapons are unwilling to suggest that patrolling officers lock their guns in a safe box.
The courts have already decided that police have no affirmative obligation to protect anyone against harm - I would modify that to suggest that if you deny an individual the right of self defense you have a duty to provide that defense.
As for Feinstein and her assault weapon ban, the lady just needed a cover for the failure of law enforcement and the courts to keep the people safe from Purdy in the face of his 7 demonstrations of his evil intention. I don't trust a government that does not trust an armed people.

ESHALHAKHTUI, ".look at the statistics of handgun deaths in states with looser gun "controls" versus states with rigid gun "controls".

What a perfectly lame argument. Tell me, is there a fence around states that don't permit handguns? How many people (and huns) do you suppose cross state lines every day?

Go to the statistic that matters, the one that shows America, by FAR, as the leader in handgun deaths, worldwide. Argue against that, instead of cherry-picking stats while people DIE every day in America because yahoo's like you want to carry heat.

The Jewish Defense League?? Are you serious, Walter??

Here's what jewish-owned Wikipedia has to say about these jewish terrorist devils:

Web Link

In its report Terrorism 2000/2001, the FBI referred to the organization as a "violent extremist Jewish organization" and stated that the FBI was responsible for thwarting at least one of its terrorist acts.[4] The Terrorism Knowledge Base states that during the JDL's first two decades of activity, it was an "active terrorist organization;" even so, the JDL was specifically referenced by the FBI's Executive Assistant Director Counterterrorism/Counterintelligence, John S. Pistole, in his formal report before the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks upon the United States.[2] While the MIPT writes that the JDL does not currently engage in terrorist actions, according to The Washington Post both active and former JDL leaders currently serve as primary fundraisers for the outlawed Israeli terrorist group Kahane Chai.[5] The "anti-Israel"[6] Washington Report on Middle East Affairs has compiled a long list of mainstream sources it says show a thirty year history of JDL terrorism on U.S. soil, as well as its association with the proscribed Israeli terrorist group Kahane Chai.


In 2004 congressional testimony, John S. Pistole, Executive Assistant Director for Counterterrorism and Counterintelligence for the Federal Bureau of Investigation described the JDL as "a known violent extremist Jewish Organization."[18] FBI statistics show that from 1980 through 1985, there were 18 terrorist attacks in the U.S. committed by Jews; 15 of those by members of the JDL.[9] Mary Doran, an FBI street agent, described the JDL in 2004 Congressional testimony as "a proscribed terrorist group".


On 25 February 1994, Baruch Goldstein, a charter member of the JDL, opened fire on Palestinian Muslims kneeling in prayer at mosque in the West Bank city of Hebron, killing 29. On its website, the JDL writes "we are not ashamed to say that Goldstein was a charter member of the Jewish Defense League."


The JDL encourages, per its principle of the "Love of Jewry", that "...[I]n the end...the Jew can look to no one but another Jew for help and that the true solution to the Jewish problem is the liquidation of the Exile and the return of all Jews to Eretz Yisroel -- the land of Israel."[32] The JDL elaborates on this fundamental principle by insisting upon an "immediate need to place Judaism over any other 'ism' and ideology and...use of the yardstick: 'Is it good for Jews?'"[32] The JDL considers Evangelical Christian attempts to convert Jews as "perhaps the most dangerous form of anti-Semitism present in the United States today".[


The JDL is officially against intermarriage between a Jew and a non-Jew.[37] However, the JDL states it is not a racist organization. As evidence, it mentions the aid it has given Arab immigrants to the United States. The group has stated, "It has always been a JDL priority to encourage as many Arabs as possible to leave Israel to make new homes in America or wherever they wish to live."


The JDL has been criticized by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) for presenting a "gross distortion" of the real situation of American Jews.[1] The ADL states that JDL's founder, Meir Kahane, "preached a radical form of Jewish nationalism which reflected racism, violence and political extremism".[1]The ADL says that those attitudes were replicated by Irv Rubin, the successor to Kahane.[38] The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has added the JDL to its list of watched hate groups.

Is Pistole the guy who will not let the government hire any Arabic speaking Jews for translation jobs? How many airliners has the JDL blown up?
Like the Stern Gang and Hagana, They go after the enemy. Were I Jewish, I would probably be more like JDL than like the Land for Peace and dead for live Jews.

That's odd, Walter, it seems it means little to you that JDL founder Meir Kahane and his plucky torchbearing son were iced by gunmen on separate occassions.

Better iced than showered with Zyklon B. Diplomacy without an "or else" is just futile noise. I put it on the line for my beliefs every day, fully understanding the risks involved but contemptuous of those who do not stand.

Typical post, Mike, by those who want to hang on to their beliefs in the face of contradictory facts. Be sure to count on 911 for your self defense when someone breaks into your home at 2 am.

BTW, please note that in Europe there are now an increase in GUN DEATHS since the implementation of GUN CONTROL.
