Arming Up: Pistol Permit Applications Spike in New York After Anti-Semitic Attacks

From the AP

The number of residents seeking to own handguns has risen sharply in a New York community shaken last month by a machete attack that injured five men during a Hanukkah celebration.

The Journal News reports 73 pistol permit applications have been filed with the Rockland County Clerk’s Office since the Dec. 28 attack at a rabbi’s home in Monsey, a hamlet in the town of Ramapo northwest of New York City.

That compares to 51 applications the office received during the eight weeks prior to the stabbing, County Clerk Paul Piperato told the newspaper.

Sixty-eight of the new applications came from Ramapo residents, including 31 from Monsey.

“It’s definitely because of this incident,” Piperato told the newspaper, referring to the attack. “In some way, shape or form, they want to defend themselves.”

Chief William Barbera of the Rockland County Sheriff’s Department says an application is the first step in a months-long process. Applicants are required to be fingerprinted and undergo a background check and firearms training before the paperwork is submitted to a licensing officer.

An academy run by veterans of the Israeli Defense Forces has been providing weapons training in Ramapo’s synagogues since the machete attack, The Journal News reports. Its trainers have been advising Jewish residents to seek unrestricted pistol permits.

“The goal is to be able to carry at synagogue and not to just possess at home and take to the range,” said Yonatan Stern, the academy’s director.

    Let’s hope the Jews being attacked on the streets of New York city will soon be given the ability to tool-up and defend themselves as those in most cities in free states can…

    1. avatar Madcapp says:

      Tool up and defend themselves? I woulda thought the lesson was clearly demonstrated in WWII (amongst the many, many, many other teachable antisemetic events throughout history). I don’t get it…lotsa Jews like to say “never again”, but a great many of them don’t ever seem to really mean it.

        Maybe the large Jewish population in NYC will get off their collective asses and help correct that city and states gun laws.

      Short version NY city guns laws from 1911 were passed by corrupt politician to protect the gangs who provided his power base. Too many citizens we’re fighting back making it dangerous for the criminals.

    I live in Los Angeles and all the Orthodox Jews and Israelis I know are very pro 2a and rather conservative. I know a few elderly Americans Jews also who are big time gun guys. That said most the current wishy washy under 50yo Jews are just leftists who go to synagogue. It’s rather sad because if anyone should know how important the right to self defense is, it’s the Jews.

      Like all leftists, they figure that if the government controls the guns, and they control the government, they can be safe by using the government (and their guns) against their enemies.

  8. avatar uncommon_sense says:

    … [a handgun license] application is the first step in a months-long process [to carry handguns for righteous self-defense in New York].

    New York’s law therefore means that applicants who suffer horrific injuries/rape/death as a result of being defenseless (while waiting for New York to approve their handgun license) are allowable sacrifices in pursuit of a perfect society.

    Reminds me of the Aztecs who sacrificed humans in a horrific attempt to improve their society.

    As I have recently stated several times, government employees who prohibit you from being able to defend yourself effectively are ACCESSORIES to the CRIMINALS who attack you while you are defenseless. And that makes those government employees CRIMINALS themselves.

    1. avatar Dukes says:

      What do you expect these government EMPLOYEES to do exactly? To refuse so they can be fired and replaced by people who will do it? Politicians and those who contribute financially are the problem, also those who vote for gun grabbing politicians.

      1. avatar uncommon_sense says:

        Dukes,

        What do you expect these government EMPLOYEES to do exactly?

        I expect everyone — including government employees — to act with honor and do what is right. Enacting legal penalties against someone for nothing more than having or using an effective means of righteous self-defense is neither honorable nor right. In fact that is criminal.

        Thus, government employees should refuse to support or participate in any process which exacts legal penalties against good people for righteous self-defense. Period. If that means they should seek another job, so be it.

  9. avatar enuf says:

    Long guns people, they are training with long guns. That’s smart. It would take a very long time for pistol permits which would likely not be approved. So, select some long guns the state and city have minimal laws in the way of, train on those.

    If the pistol licenses do eventually get approved, well so much the better.

    1. avatar TruthTellers says:

      I was thinking the same because the next step these anti-semitic attacks are going to take is home invasions and assaults on their property. A long gun you can get faster is better than no gun.

      This was a really well thought out and I hope this group continues their efforts.

    2. avatar Gadsden Flag says:

      enuf, that’s smart. Long guns, especially rifles, every day. The only reason I carry a handgun is because it’s handy. If I can get to my rifle, any rifle, that’s what I’m going to kill you with.

      For NYC you still need a permit for long guns.

  10. avatar retmsgt says:

    Meanwhile, in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, to purchase a handgun, shotgun or rifle from an authorized dealer requires just two things – the money to pay for the purchase and passing a PSP/FBI background check. No waiting ten days, no classes to take, no fingerprints (as if you were a criminal), no psych report, no license/permit required.

    Want to carry your handgun? No license required if you’re Open Carrying and within walking distance of your home. Concealed Carry and in or on a vehicle (you’re on a motorcycle, you’re in a car), takes a one-page application, twenty bucks, and in most cases your license will be approved the same day.

    1. avatar Shelby says:

      The concealed license application also takes two references who are not family members, which is ridiculous imo. PA is usually ranked in the middle when it comes to best and worst states for gun owners, nothing to brag about, unless of course you compare to NY or Massachusetts.

      1. avatar retmsgt says:

        The Pennsylvania License to Carry Firearms (otherwise known as an LTCF) application form currently requires two personal references. In some counties they’ve dropped that requirement since it’s not supported by statute. And in just about all cases the “references” are not contacted.

    I was at Cabela’s on Friday picking up a lower and the man behind the counter asked me ”why do so many Jews vote Democrat when it’s the Democrats who are putting them in th exact same position they were in in germany?”
    I said Bec the Democrats make u feel good with all thier promises of a better future and making the world a better more equitable place. And that is a core belief in many circles of judaism.
    That and many of us have very short memories. And lots of us either never had Holocaust parents and grand parents (I had grandparents) around to tell us to be careful of nice people offering to protect us if we would all just live in one place and have no guns.

    1. avatar M says:

      I get your point but even if all Jews had firearms their fate would have not been any different in the forties in Europe. Hitler, the gestapo, etc, may have been obliged to send more troops but the job would have been done. Maybe more would have been shot and killed in a fight rather than dying in a camp, which would have been a better death so there’s that.

    The black community does have legitimate grievances with Jews.

    I’m tired to Jews using the holocaust (which has been greatly exaggerated) to get special treatment here in America. Maybe if they stopped trying to take away our guns, pushing drugs, flooding our country with immigrants, GLBT and pornography, and having our military fight their wars for them… anti-semitism wouldn’t exist.

    But Jews, as a whole, are working to subvert our country. Sure- This blog is on the right side of the gun question… but we don’t make policies based on outliers.

    Jews are openly hostile to our way of life, and the fact that a few embrace guns when it benefits *them* doesn’t change that.

He used it to break up an armed robbery at a convenience store. Trust him to cover my back any day. I judge a man on his merits. Not his ethnicity. When I was a child my mother used to make reference to “white trash.” I asked her once what that meant. She said, “They’re just like niggers, but they don’t have the excuse.” That was a less enlightened time, but I still see white trash every day.

      On yr fake point, because this is the interweb, n that was all about playing to the audience…

      The American Compact extends to any who join it, from as far back as Washington’s famous Synagog letter. Groups who worship a certain way — practicing Jews in particular, with a particular ethnic background — ethnic Jews in particular, from a particular diaspora — Jews in particular, are irrelevant. Individuals — people — who join our compact are welcome; all comers. Who don’t, well maybe they’d find being among like minded more congenial.

      The compact includes that you are your own person, leading to natural rights, then govt — and groups — derived from collected people, not the other way around. Some crappy people happen to be Jewish. Most aren’t; read that both ways.

      In The American Compact of humans first with natural rights, guns — this being a gun discussion site — are something the govt needs quite a reason to meddle with, and people no reason at all. Gun politics based on groups is particularly heinous. Under the American Compact, individuals — including “Jews” — have every right to defend themselves, in particular when our collective protection doesn’t, in particular when they are singled out as a group.

      The pasty, Methodist-looking folks in Seattle who assembled outside a post-9 11 graffittied Mosque are American; handing out flowers, waving little flags, n plunking their Costco-fueled behinds in lawn chairs, a respectful distance outside. “We’re sorry this happened.” “This ain’t us.” “You go ahead n do your thing: we’ll keep watch.”

      This happened. Somebody else blew up those buildings.

Makes me wonder if these jews would advocate for non jews to carry firearms. Read the talmud and see what it says about gentiles. Jews are supremacists and hate goyem, they always have. The worst day in jewish history wasnt the holocaust, which was vastly overexaggerated, but the day the talmud was translated. They people arent our friends. In fact, they are actively working to subvert you and your culture

    Hey Guys,

    I thought I’d chime in on this one as someone who is uniquely qualified to answer. I live about 5 miles from the area referenced in the article, and pass through this area all the time. A few things that probably deserve correction that nobody would know if they weren’t directly involved in the politics of this situation. Obviously the attacks on their group are terrible and unjustifiable, however there is some significant animosity locally for the group based on the following:

    1) The hasidics you reference here are not “jews” the way many probably think. These are not normal American people that are jewish and are being persecuted for no reason. They are very different and essentially belong to a cult, and I would say that if most here lived in an area with an increasing presence, would be less inclined to view the group favorably. This fairly extreme group has zero interest in integration and is typically not friendly to outsiders. There are exceptions but generally, they would not speak to you.

    2) These people barely speak English (primary language is yiddish, despite being born and raised in America), and they are widely known in the area for what I would call at minimum deceptive and largely illegal manipulation of the American system. They are EXTREMELY insular, they really do not deal with the outside world, they govern themselves through the religion and will essentially deny interaction with the outside. You’d be amazed how effective this is; I have personally witnessed a car accident “disappear” where an extremely reckless hasidic fellow was clearly at fault and subsequently generated 3 false witnesses to an accident, at which point the poor woman basically was forced to “give up” and negotiate on the spot for a few bucks in cash, far less than the damage caused.

    3) Marriages only acknowledged within their religion, but not filed with the state, leaving all women in the community to commit blatant welfare fraud on behalf of the men. Large numbers of children, usually 5-10 mean that with no income, they receive a handsome payout from Cuomo to keep voting for him. This is why Monsey, NY and Kiryas Joel, NY are on paper two of the poorest areas in the country, yet all the men there works illegitimately for one another, yet claims no income for the family.

    4) This group typically move into a middle class area then overtake it importing all of their relatives, subsequently becoming the majority in the area, collapsing real estate values and turning it into a ghetto. The next move is usually to erect cheap tenement/ghetto style housing to cram in as many people as possible, essentially erecting city blocks in suburbs to support future generations of low income hasidic housing. Often the church owns these homes, renting them to community members while claiming tax exemption to grow the real estate portfolio.

    5) They are a very visible group, as they only drive on select days, much of the time you will see them walking, men in black suits, women dressed like pilgrims, pushing carriages of 3-4 babies. The neighborhoods are usually strewn with debris, children’s toys in the front yard, very dirty, but it doesn’t seem to bother them.

    6) Public schools in the towns that they take over are usually quickly defunded (hasidics vote in blocks to do this, they home school their children, don’t care about yours) and as such the locals suffer, their children forced to attend schools that plummet in educational quality, crushing home prices, thus allowing more hasidics to buy up homes, gain more influence, rinse/repeat.

    I don’t write this in personal hatred, I don’t live in the area effected by them, but I do understand how someone that grew up in a town and had hoped to raise their children there, only to see it completely destroyed along with their home equity could find this disheartening. With no interest in participating in the incumbent community, it apparently becomes us vs them by the choice of hasidics, not the locals. It’s a shame that state government is too corrupt to stand up to it, forcing locals to act very desperately.

      While there are some truths here there are many falsehoods or partial truths.

      Basically the best way to lie.

      Doesn’t matter though, does it? Not a single thing you described is a valid reason to commit random violence on a community as a whole. Not every person one that community is guilty. But collective guilt is what leads to racism and blind attacks on people for what they look like.

      I have relatives literally blocks from that synagogue, they pay an exorbitant property tax, their property is valued at close to a million, and theirs is the second cheapest house on the block. Go a mile west and you have the community you describe, go a 1/4 north and south and it goes back to regular suburbia.

    Gun control’s genesis lies in racism.
