This is what happens to a disarmed populace.
The Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council for the Hudson Valley region said on Twitter, “At 9:50 this eve, a call came in about a mass stabbing at 47 Forshay Road in Monsey (Rockland County; 30 miles North of NYC). It’s the house of a Hasidic Rabbi. 5 patients with stab wounds, all Hasidic, were transported to local hospitals.”

It’s difficult to conceive of a congregation — Jews in particular, but any denomination, really — that wouldn’t provide some form of armed security to protect its congregation at all times.
Because of the virtual prohibition on concealed carry permits there, (legal) armed congregants are almost impossible in the city of New York. That means the only choice for armed defense there would be private security or off-duty police. That’s not an inexpensive proposition.

This is the same woman making it harder for people in New York to arm themselves with guns against attacks from anti-semites with machetes. They then let these criminals out of jail. Leftist disarmament policies promote the tolerance of hate crimes. https://t.co/hEALVoSWVs
