How Can Jewish People Best Defend Against Violent Antisemitic Hate-Crime

New York – -(AmmoLand.com)- The recent violent attacks against Jews in New York City and in other cities around the Country are not the first and, unfortunately, won’t be the last. But all Americans can be subject to violence.

National pro-Second Amendment websites such as Ammoland Shooting Sports News, NRA, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, The Truth About Guns, Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership, Second Amendment Foundation, and the podcast Lock N Load Radio, among many other pro-Second Amendment rights websites, podcasts, and pro-Second Amendment alternative media organizations, know this.

Immersed in illusion and delusion, incessantly bombarded by lies spawned by the seditious mainstream media propaganda machine which controls much of what the average person sees and hears, Americans are not only encouraged to act against their own best interests but are psychologically conditioned to do so. Mass psychosis is slowly and inexorably descending on the American citizenry, callously orchestrated and mercilessly executed through a massive, monstrous indoctrination and brainwashing disinformation campaign.

The Radical Left and mainstream media argue that the Second Amendment is no longer a necessary guarantor of Americans’ life and liberty but a dated and useless artifact.

Many Americans, especially those who are members of minority communities, learn this the hard way when they face brutal attacks. They find that responsibility for one’s physical safety and well-being rests, as it must and always did, with them, as individuals, and not in others; and certainly not in Government—and that Government, amassing complete control over the thoughts and actions of the American public, would be the ruin of us all.

First, the Government, through the police, does not have the resources to protect every citizen even if they wanted to. Second, there is no legal requirement that the police have a duty to guarantee the physical safety of an individual even when informed of an imminent threat to the physical safety of that individual. The Courts have made this point clear, as the Arbalest Quarrel has pointed out.

It is deception on the part of both government officials and the mainstream seditious Press to suggest otherwise, and it is deceitful of Government and the Press to keep this critical information from the American public.

Why do Government and the mainstream seditious Press do this? They do this because they want the American people to believe that the police exist to protect Americans, as individuals. Police, though, cannot protect the life of every innocent American and they do not have the legal duty to do so except in very rare circumstances.

These Radical Left government officials, and the mainstream seditious Press that is in league with them, are needlessly placing the lives of innocent people at serious risk of harm. Even as they claim to care about the sanctity of human life, they demonstrate their blatant disregard for it. The Arbalest Quarrel has written about this, pointing to the inconsistency, duplicity, and hypocrisy of the Radical Left government officials and the seditious Press that echoes their sentiments.

On October 27, 2018, a lunatic shot and killed eleven people and wounded six other Congregants of a Synagogue, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Then, fourteen months later, a raging, rabid, hate-filled lunatic, armed with a machete, brutally stabbed and slashed, one critically, members of a deeply religious sect of the Jewish Community in New York, who were simply, innocently celebrating their Holiday at the home of their Rabbi. This incident received wide coverage, and ABC News did extensive reporting on it, providing New York’s Governor, Andrew Cuomo, and New York City’s Mayor, Bill de Blasio, another political platform in which to enunciate the usual platitudes. And what were their answers to horrific violent hate-crime? As one might expect Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio merely offered Government as the sole solution to violent hate crime.

On his website, Governor Cuomo reiterates with pretentious certitude the demonstrative falsehood that the public can rely on government alone for protection.Cuomo snorts: “And government’s jobs is to protect people and this state government will protect people of the Jewish faith and every other religion in this state.”

Americans, though, are coming around to the truth; and the truth is that one’s physical safety and security rests with the individual. What counts is meaningful action, not more hollow government rhetoric.

Following the brutal attacks on innocent people, the Arbalest Quarrel consulted with a Rabbi, a leader of the York City Jewish community, who expressed concern over the proposed solutions offered by Cuomo and de Blasio.

The Rabbi asked us: “What can members of the Jewish community, as individuals, do to truly protect their life and that of their friends and family members.” We explained that “self-defense is not only a fundamental, natural right but a duty and the best means of self-defense is a firearm.”

Having made the points that we did, the Rabbi asked us how individuals in his Congregation can responsibly protect themselves with a firearm. We told the Rabbi that we would consult with the Seneca Sporting Range, and, after doing so, we prepared a letter on behalf of the Range which then sent the letter to members of the New York City Jewish community. The exact content of the letter is as follows:


Seneca Sporting Range Responds To The Urgent Needs Of The Jewish Community Of New York City

January 10, 2020

The recent violent attacks against Jews in New York City and in other Cities around the Country are not the first and, unfortunately, won’t be the last.

How can Jews best protect themselves and their families against continued violent attacks spawned by hate? Governor Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio recognize the threat.

Governor Cuomo says that the December 28, 2019 violent attack on the home of a Hasidic Rabbi is an ‘act of domestic terrorism.’ New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio calls the recent attack against Jews, a ‘crisis.’

And, in response to the horrific attack Mayor de Blasio announced more police patrols in Jewish communities and ordered an “‘intensified curriculum’ focused on anti-Semitism, to teach young people that attacks motivated by hate or ignorance breed more violence.”

City officials said they would add more security cameras and light towers in ultra-orthodox Jewish Communities.

This is all fine, but the burning fact remains antisemitism and violent attacks against Jews are not a new phenomenon.

The burning question is why didn’t Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio implement enhanced security measures all along to prevent from happening the very tragedy that occurred?

The problem is that politicians tend to operate reactively not proactively, and all too often a government’s response to a crisis is half-hearted, insufficient, and demonstrably deficient, aimed at defusing political fallout rather than on actually solving a serious problem.

But, if Mayor de Blasio’s proposals if implemented are not adequate to provide the Jewish community with the safety and security it needs and deserves, what, then, is the answer?

What can the Jewish community do? What can you do?

The first thing you can and, in fact, must do is accept the fact that the matter of securing your physical safety and well-being and that of your family rests ultimately on you, not Government. We are talking here of personal defense: self-defense.

Self-defense is a fundamental, immutable, unalienable right. It is a primordial right and the most sacred of God-given rights. And self-defense is an absolute duty.

Further, contrary to common belief, it is not the duty of Government, through the police, to guarantee your personal safety, security and well-being, and it never was. The Government is immune from liability to individuals for failure to ensure their protection. You can read about this here: http://arbalestquarrel.com/can-we-as-individuals-rely-on-the-police-to-protect-us/

ARMED SELF-DEFENSE IS THE BEST DEFENSE AGAINST AGGRESSIVE ATTACK

A firearm in the hands of a responsible, law-abiding, trained individual is the best defense against a serious physical threat. This isn’t supposition. It is fact. But, the decision to obtain a firearm is a serious one; never to be taken lightly.

At Seneca Sporting Range we take the ownership and possession of a firearm seriously.

We provide a complete package of services that includes preparation of City handgun license applications.

Our certified instructors will guide you in the selection of and training in the use of and proper, safe handling and caring of a handgun. You will learn how to shoot a handgun and will gain proficiency in doing so. We will teach you techniques and the strategies of armed self-defense.

I am here to assist you in your personal decision to lawfully possess, handle, and safeguard your firearm. Please call Seneca Sporting Range at (917) 414-2186.

Our website is at this link: www.senecasportingrange.com. We operate by appointment only and all communications are confidential.

Sincerely,

John Deloca,

Owner, Seneca Sporting Range, Inc.


It is our fervent hope that we can eventually change the false perception about guns and gun ownership that Radical Left politicians and a seditious Press have planted in the mind of many Americans. It is unfortunate that it takes a horrific act of violence before many Americans come to their senses and realize that the right of the people to keep and bear arms is not an archaic and obsolete phrase, but an immutable, unalienable truth, as relevant and as necessary today as it was when the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution was ratified on December 15, 1791.

A Grassroots Movement in America has begun as a response to the serious imminent threats to the physical safety of individuals. Conversations are underway in Synagogues, Churches, Mosques, and other places of worship. And discussions are also taking place, if quietly, in our schools, universities, and workplaces, over the question of how a person can effectively defend his or her life in light of Government’s obvious failure to do so.

A firearm in the hands of a law-abiding, responsible, trained individual was, is, and will forever be the best means of self-defense. It is futile, dishonest, and vain for anyone to deny this.

The times we live in and the obvious answer to the question is; Arm up. Firearms and ammo are much cheaper than funerals. LIFE IS PRECIOUS AND IT IS WORTH PRESERVING AND DEFENDING. ANYONE WHO SAYS OTHERWISE IS EVIL. Throughout history, evil has done evil to people and sometimes, specific nationalities and religions. Ever since Cain and Able there has been jealousy, hatred and murder. There really are those out there who have the disposition of an ass. Let him who has ears listen.

I am a Jew. I own firearms and carry one every day. The sentiments in this article describe the only way for any individual or group to respond to actual or threatened acts of violence. I left New York when we retired in 2015 and now live in Virginia where the fight for the natural right to be defensively armed is under serious attack. The battle cry should be “NEVER AGAIN.” Secondly.

@wjd – Just as valid to say middle-aged white men are the biggest gun grabbers across the entire country. “We” (middle-aged white men) are present and quite visible in most movements and groups you can find. Broad statements like that are meaningless and counter-productive. You will find members of any large portion of the US population present and visible in most movements and groups in the US. Bloomberg’s religion is irrelevant, he is an individual and should be treated (or mistreated) as such. Welcome groups who wish to support us.

Exodus 22:2 If a thief is taken in the act of forcing his way into a house, and his death is caused by a blow, the owner of the house is not responsible for his blood.

Well said! Tool up and be aware of your surroundings.

Also, there’s no such thing as a “hate crime”, since there isn’t a “love crime”. (No hot without cold, no up without down, no wet without dry, etc.) It’s the actions that are the issue here, more than the mindset of the assailant. Just my $0.02.

As both descendants of Adam and American citizens, you have the right to be armed and carry those arms. So buy a damned gun and get some training in using it. If you won’t protect yourself then protect your families and those around you when need be. Cops can only protect you if they are right there when you are attacked. And arresting your attacker after you are already killed is not helpful. Buy a gun!

Jesus said; ” He who is for us is not against us.” Those Jews coming to us and being welcomed by us brings with them blessing and strength. Rejection of them will bring defeat. Genesis 12:3 “Those who bless you I will bless, those who curse you I will curse.” There are those among the Jews who will remain among the left just as there were those Jews of the last century who remained among the Nazi’s, they received their just rewards. Some, like soro’s escaped, and today they are evil in open sight. Those who are like them are… Read more »

But I thought those terrible black ugly “assault” rifles were outlawed in the Empire State of idiots. And that makes those people in the picture felons for the possession of them. I can’t understand why someone would be taking a picture since they are so dangerous that maybe he or she might have been shot because one might just jump off of their shoulders and blast away at the photographer. That person was taking their life in their hands. The ONLY way to be protected is to protect yourself. PERIOD.

@CL – Not the only way to be protected. Just as we protect our children, spouses, friends and family – if we’ve been doing our jobs right they will all also pitch in to protect us.
Guess in a way that is protecting oneself, as one is responsible for building relationships and raising children with capability and determination to do what’s necessary.
To misquote – Arm up, for the children!

Prior to 2017, the majority of Jews voted “D,” over the last three years, that majority has shifted. It is the “D’s” themselves who are moving the Jews from being “D’s” to the right.
Hatred can only blind people for so long, the hatred of the left for Jews, is being placed in plain open sight and it is also awakening those who aren’t Jews to the fact the hatred the left has for, anyone, who doesn’t bow down to them.

I am on the road every week and over the last two years I am seeing blue people turning red because of the childish antics of the democrats. People thought they had voted for grownups, but the dems have dashed their hopes completely. The last administration showed many Jews just exactly what they thought of them and Israel. Because of the hatred of the left for the Jews many have changed their thinking to a president who has shown respect not only to the Jews in Israel, but here at home as well.

California still has it’s attraction, but it is no longer my home and there is no way I’d move back to fight to fix it. My attitude is different toward any trying to change Texas.
