JPFO: Top Ten Reason Jews Hate Guns

I’m a Jew and I don’t hate guns. Nor does the rabbi or Mr. Zimmerman. In fact, we three TTAGers—and millions of other American Jews besides—see firearms as the key to our personal and collective survival. And the survival of our deeply cherished Constitutional rights. But there’s no doubting the fact that some American Jews (e.g., New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Senator Chuck Schumer) spearhead the boneheaded push for gun control. This website and the Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO) have never shied away from this unconscionable truth. The JPFO have just published an article on Jewish hopolophobia. The full screed is unflinchingly comprehensive. Make the jump for the short-form top ten list . . .

1. A desire for utopian moral purity
2. A disproportional incidence of hoplophobia
3. A quest for power through victimization of peers
4. A utopian delusion that if guns would just “go away,”
crime would end and the world would be a peaceful safe place
5. Self hatred and a wish to be helpless, acting out guilt-based
behavioral problems that develop in childhood
6. The Ostrich Syndrome
7. Garden-variety hypocrisy
8. Adulterated religion — Jews In Name Only (JINOs)
9. Feel-good sophistry
10. Abject fear that yields irrational behavior
