Kurt Hofmann: Descendant of Holocaust survivors wants us less capable of resisting holocausts

"Knowing full well the epic scope of genocidal mass murder that can be perpetrated by a government, unless millions of determined and well armed "John Q. Publics" are prepared to stop it, he nevertheless wants to dramatically reduce the firepower available to the citizenry."

Once victims - forever victims.

None learn that being a victim is the clearest indication that the victim has been doing something wrong in the self defence stakes.

We should thank victims as they instruct us in the incorrect responses to brutality.

About 15 years ago, I was doing preventative maintenance on a furnace at an older ladies house. Once I completed the work and went inside to get the service ticket signed, she handed me an NRA magazine to read. Don't remember which issue it was, but I will always remember what she told me. She was a Jew in Germany during WW2, and they were banned from owning guns. With an illegal pistol she stopped 2 German soldiers from taking them to the camps, they fled afterwards ending up here in America. She said, "An illegal pistol saved our lives."

"An illegal pistol saved our lives."

Wasn't the first time and it won't be the last... by many thousands.

I echo was carlwk3c said. I am Jewish and have, as Rep. Dick Armey once said, "more guns than I need, and less than I want." I know many who are similarly situated - none of us are going to be boarding any cattle cars or taking any forced "showers" while our bodies are warmer than our guns.

Yes, there are good, bad and indifferent people in any sufficiently large group. I disavow any relationship with Feinstein, Schumer, etc. - to me they are definitely JINOs. They refuse to acknowledge that 3 of our holidays involved Jews defending themselves: Passover (celebrating the Exodus), in which "the Jews went armed out of Egypt;" Purim, when Jews resisted a Persian attempt at genocide about 2,500 years ago with arms; and Hannukah, in which the Maccabbees (from a family of the priestly class) and their followers revolted against the Syrian Greeks who had defiled the Holy Temple, and established an independent Jewish state (until the Romans came in about 100 years later).

The Talmud - a series of books explaining the various laws in the 5 Books of Moses (the Torah) - has a passage in which it says words to the effect of "if someone comes to kill you, rise up and kill him first."

Self-defense and fighting for liberty are not at all foreign to Judaism. Those Jews (by descent) who insist otherwise are either igonorant, or just plain JINOs.
