Purim: The Deeply Anti-Progressive Jewish Holiday

Today is the holiday of Purim. It is no accident that in 2015, Benjamin Netanyahu referenced Purim when delivering his powerful address to the U.S. Senate in an unsuccessful bid to curb Obama’s legitimization of a nuclear Iran. Purim is an old ( 5th century B.C.E.) but painfully familiar story: A Jew-hater named Haman hatches […]

Jews and Guns

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 […]

Mass Shootings: What America Can Learn From Israel

The after-shooting ritual is in full bloom. One side screams at the other—and no one hears anything. Before getting to the article about Israel and the value of the armed citizen, I want to point out that asking the government to solve the problem of mass shootings is both impractical and dangerously utopian. The problem […]

How to Respond to the Sutherland Springs Massacre

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 […]

Jews With and Without Guns

When Karen and I were in Israel we were comforted by the presence everywhere of Jews with guns. Karen’s brother David, an accomplished lawyer, Rabbi and businessman, carries his Glock nearly everywhere. David is a good man. Thus, he is a good man with a gun. The reason he carries a gun—and is licensed to […]

Gun Rights Are Women’s Rights

The right to bear arms isn’t just a constitutional issue — it’s a women’s rights issue. Author and commentator Katie Pavlich explains why guns are the great equalizer between men and women. Donate today to PragerU! http://l.prageru.com/2eB2p0h

Evil on the Vegas Strip

And so here we are. Again. The Las Vegas massacre is not, as the media habitually labels such incidents, a tragedy. This is an atrocity.

Jew Without a Gun: 25 Years Ago, the LA Riots

This coming Saturday marks the 25the anniversary of the Los Angeles Riots. Thus, I am republishing my three-part series about the riots of 1992 in which Karen and I and the children were trapped for several frightening hours. We were unarmed, helpless save for our wits. The police were conspicuously absent and the bad guys—frequently […]

Prager U: Is Gun Ownership a Right?

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.

Jews and Guns

Before our son Ariel Chaim ZT”L passed away in 2003 at the age of twenty-two, he and I spent a good deal of time discussing the Second Amendment, the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Ariel was amazed that so many American Jews–overwhelmingly liberal and secular–aligned themselves with the advocates of gun control, in reality a movement […]

Girl Without a Gun: Pacifist Stalked, Reality Intrudes

I am republishing this true life story from 2007 for the same reason I republished Jew Without a Gun, my nightmarish report of being trapped with my family, unarmed and defenseless, in the 1992 L.A. Riots. This is another cautionary tale—not about the riots—but about one frightened and helpless young woman who was being stalked […]

How To Kill An IslamoNazi

The Obama administration has blamed the Orlando massacre on guns. Of course, the slaughter was engineered and committed by an IslamoNazi who repeatedly proclaimed his allegiance to ISIS. In 2009, during a trip to Israel, I ran into an old friend from Brooklyn who, armed with a Glock, saved scores of innocent Jews by bravely […]

Democrats Believe Orlando Massacre is America’s Fault

  The anti-gun fervor that grips Obama and the Democrat party serves dual political strategies. The first is to make believe that IslamoNazi ideology does not exist. The Obama regime fantasizes that radical Islam is, um, workplace violence, or violent extremism — anything other than what it obviously is, and what the terrorists tells us […]

Because of the Orlando massacre, I am republishing my three-part series about the Los Angeles Riots of 1992 in which Karen and I and the children were trapped for several frightening hours.

Passover 2016: The Slave Learns to Love His Shackles

Friday night begins the holiday of Passover in which Jews celebrate deliverance from Egyptian bondage. In order to escape the shackles of slavery, the vast machinery of the mighty Egyptian state had to be crushed. Those who wielded absolute power were reduced to nothingness. G-d did this not only to diminish the physical power of […]

Democrat Monopolies and Black Self-Genocide

Most Americans view business monopolies as a  threat to free enterprise, to the very notion of liberty. But when there is a political monopoly the citizens who belong to that monopoly are content to let it stand. That’s because power becomes an end in itself. Democrats have maintained political monopolies in Baltimore, Chicago and Detroit […]

Jew With Gun

There is no such thing as gun violence. The left uses the absurd phrase “gun violence” in order to rid our culture of human agency — in other words, of morality. The left denies the notion of good and evil just as it denies IslamoNazi terror, a malignant ideology that is spreading like cancer across […]
