There is a problem in American Judaism. It is a problem of basic theology. Those of us who believe in Torah Judaism recognize that evil exists, and to combat evil requires common sense and weapons.
Secular American Jews—Democrats almost exclusively—believe in utopian solutions to, well, everything. Which means they advocate for gun free zones, an invitation to Jew-hating mass murderers.
My good friend Daniel Greenfield’s article which analyzes this theological split is both timely and accurate.
I am republishing this entry, with some edits, because after the Parkland atrocity—a massive failure of local and federal government and law enforcement at every level—the antigun hysteria of the left, with their photogenic high school commissars in the vanguard, presents a danger to the Second Amendment.
Make no mistake about it; the left plans to do away with the Second Amendment through the anthropomorphism of weapons, a dangerous anti-intellectual intellectual trend.
If you think about it, all our rights are useless if the right to bear arms is nullified.
A final note: I was visiting a close friend who is a Holocaust survivor. We were talking about guns and the current antigun delirium which grips the left.
My friend said: “It was men with guns who liberated the camps.”
So far, the dead in the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs massacre number 26, with 20 wounded.
This atrocity will, no doubt, devolve into a debate about gun control. Democrats will label the NRA evil, and the Republicans who support the Second Amendment as a bunch of knuckle draggers. Never mind that it seems it was good man with a gun who put a halt to the killing spree.
Gun debate aside, let me propose a few simple measures that the media should adopt in the wake of a mass killing.
Another splendid short from Prager University.
What does the Second Amendment say? Is gun ownership a right for all Americans? Or just for a small militia? Eugene Volokh, Professor of Law at UCLA, explains what the Founding Fathers intended.
