“Given that some attacks have been stopped by gun-carrying civilians, Israeli Public Security Minister, Gilad Erdan, in October eased citizens’ access to guns, calling gun-owners a ‘force multiplier’ in combating nearly daily Palestinian stabbing and car-ramming attacks,” Moshe Nussbaum [above] reported at Israel Channel 2. Nussbaum went on to point out that Palestinian stabbing and ramming attacks directed toward Jewish citizens that occur in Tel Aviv are usually successful and the attacker escapes. Whereas . . .
when those same attacks occur, or are attempted, in Jerusalem, the attack is typically thwarted or prevented altogether by righteous gunfire emanating from nearby soldiers and armed civilians.
In Jerusalem, there are far more privately-owned and carried guns than in Tel Aviv. So, in Jerusalem, Jews fight back – effectively – and attacks go down. Curiously, when righteous gunfire is saving innocent lives, you don’t hear the phoney, leftist term, “gun-violence,” do you?
After being so shamefully mistreated by the British in the late 1940s, Israelis – like so many others – have since gone on to foolishly imitate their abusers, particularly with regard to the private ownership of guns. It was a stupid national blunder, as they’re just now beginning to admit to themselves.
Indeed, as Erdan has been forced to concede, civilian gun-owners and gun-carriers are in truth an invaluable “force multiplier” in the fight against Islamic terrorism. Armed citizens have always fulfilled that roll, all the way back to our spiritual ancestors in Sparta. How quickly we forget!
