While it is common to see many knee-jerk reactions following some type of tragedy, a recent shooting in New York produced a different type of response. That response also sends a message that is difficult to ignore.

It has been a common theme, in particular, with any tragedies that involve a firearm, for people to jump on the anti-gun bandwagon. That is certainly an instinctive reaction in some part but it is also a response that has been undoubtedly promoted by anti-gunners and their backers.

We have even seen the unfortunate use of tragedy as a rallying cry, at times without regard for the personal sanctity of victims. Yes, these are ardent and vocal supporters of gun bans, gun restrictions, and more gun laws. That makes a recent response by one community in New York rather unusual.

It is also the kind of story that we can’t ignore, although they would like us to. There was an unfortunate attack this past December, as one story reported, “in which a suspect armed with a machete wounded five Hasidic Jews in a rabbi’s home.” Then came the response from the community.

That response wasn’t made with words either, it was made with action. As the story went on to report, there was a “nearly 1,000 percent increase in gun permit applications in the week following the Dec. 28 attack.” Those reports came from Rockland County, the same county where the attack on the Rabbi took place.

This spike in gun applications as one local gun store owner said, is because “a lot of people are worried, especially the large Hasidic and Jewish community in Rockland County. I have had rabbis come in. Some of the rabbis already have concealed carry [permits].”

Doesn’t this beg the question, if that attacker had used a gun, what would the response have been? It is also rather revealing that this incredible spike in applications was for guns. Not alarm systems, more police patrols, or bigger knives for themselves, it was firearms they wanted.

Why? For protection, the kind of protection that perhaps people really want. Maybe this is the voice of the people before they become drown beneath the noise, power, and money backing those anti-gun groups. And this isn’t West Texas or a bunch of Oklahoma cowboys and cowgirls clamoring for guns, this is a quiet Jewish community.

What scene would the anti-gunners picture, what would that world look like if we are all defenseless against these types of attacks? What next, take the knives? The billy clubs and bats, and then…?

No, it doesn’t make sense, because it doesn’t make sense. These events and these stories threaten the very premise of their argument that claims firearms are dangerous, and that they hurt and kill people.

Sadly, in the case of this reported attack, a single firearm could have kept everyone from getting hurt. In fact, it may have prevented the attack altogether because nobody is going to bring a knife to a gunfight (no matter how big the knife).

So while guys named Beto want to come and take our guns, there is evidence in stories like this, that the people aren’t volunteering to give them up. Now, of course, those supporters will also tell us that they aren’t opposed to all guns, just the dangerous ones!

Now try to picture these Jewish leaders fending of that machete-wielding assailant with a pellet gun? Sure, that will get the job done. It is a safe bet that of all those recent gun applications in Rockland County, none of them are for Beebee guns.

Americans want guns, they want the right to own them and they deserve the right to have them for protection. It is more than the 2nd Amendment promise and the law, it is common sense and part of the fiber of the Nation. As one quiet and God-fearing community clearly expressed, they want guns and they want the right to defend themselves. And they didn’t have to say it, because actions often speak louder than words.

  1. Law-abiding Americans want their guns, because it has been PROVEN Time and Time again throughout history, that an armed law-abiding populace are considered CITIZENS, and UNARMED populace are considered to be “subjects of the crown”, ripe for TYRANNY, abuse, or even ‘”elimination” if the “ruling elite class” desire to do so.

  2. Hitler, a Nationalist Socialist, had a plan and disarmed Germany and all of his conquered territory then slaughtered 9 million of defenseless people. Stalin, a Communist Socialist, had a plan and disarmed Russia then later all of Eastern Europe and slaughtered about 20 million defenseless people. Mao, another Communist Socialist, had a plan too and disarmed China then slaughtered almost 50 million defenseless “dissidents”.

    Now the American Democrat/Communist Party wants to completely disarm the United States and leave us all defenseless. So how many of us do they have plans to slaughter?

    The greatest crime throughout history is the failure to learn from it. The history is there! LEARN.

    1. They did admit that at LEAST 25 million would be killed and the rest “re-educated” in centers set up by FEMA under Obama.

      1. Eeeyup! Just like their Comrades in Russia and China. It would be nice if the duplicitous snakes would just admit who and what they are. If they’re so proud of what they preach you’d think they’d loudly announce that they’re Communists. But, they need to hide behind that screen of “Democrat” because it sounds so much more appealing.

        Don’t know as it matters though. Our “teachers” (union sponsored indoctrinators) are filling young heads with the glory of Communism at every level now. By the time they graduate high school they’re proud little “Socialists”.

  3. As a NRA member, it should be understood that I, and historically
    my family and relatives have all had a long history of gun ownership
    and use. Living in Maine and Alaska, hunting is a norm and not an
    exception.
    Long guns or hand guns, all have their uses. They do now as they have
    in the past, provide their owners with substance and protection. Not all
    the wild and dangerous elements are to be found only in the wilderness.
    In current day America today, there is ample examples of danger right here in
    our homes and streets.
    Innocent citizens are, for a myriad of reasons, assaulted daily by those who
    would do them great bodily harm. Our people are rising up in recognition of
    their increasing vulnerability by arming themselves. It is an old but true statement
    that, “When you need the police right now, they are only 10 to 20 minutes away!”
    Or, “Too little, too late!” Quite often the only obligation of the police is to “clean up
    the mess and make a report” on the outcome of the violent incident. There is
    wisdom in being prepared for the worse but, hoping for the best!
    Future courts will have to recognize that citizens do have to right to protect themselves,
    their families and their property, even if this means that the criminal element will suffer
    serious consequences for their felonious acts. Our laws should protect the citizenry
    and not the criminals!

    1. NRA here too. Paid up well in advance.

      The problem is that the radical Leftists have been sinking their claws into this country for a long time now. I’ve been telling people for over 40 years now that “it is happening here” and about all I ever got back was “it can’t happen here”. Well, it has, they own most of our courts and a healthy part of the rest of our government. Those ’60s Hippies didn’t drop out like they told everyone else to do. They dropped back in and got degrees in law and education and slowly but surely started taking us over from the inside.

      The point is that the courts don’t care about the Constitution or our Rights. They want that power and they’ll do what is necessary to seize it. Our so-called defenders in the Republican Party and elsewhere are opposing them for show only. Just like they did with ObamaCare, they’ll stab us all in the back when the time is right.

      We might have waited too long to get really involved. I fear the future.

  4. The Reason that the Framers added the 2nd
    Amendment to the Constitution was/is so that
    The government can’t take away our Freedom
    Or another country by Invasion or force of arms so long as we the people are armed we
    Will remain a free Nation let us not forget
    Germany Russia China or any country where
    The people don’t have the right to keep and
    Bear arms only have what Rights the
    Government of those countries allow them
    In most of them it’s very few rights I am an
    N R A life member

  5. It is ALSO painfully obvious in the despotic zealotry of the Democrats in trying to take our 2nd Amendment away and to remove the Constitutional structure of our governmental system, also is so painfully obvious what “politically correctness” is, trying to steal away our 1st Amendment rights. And THAT is the ONLY THING that keeps us form HAVING to resort to guns, these idiots don’t GET IT. Actually when the government tries to put liens on our GOD GIVEN rights as acknowledged in the foundation of our government, they just show us that they are tyrants that MUST BE DEPOSED, at ANY COST.

  6. The reason is, they are enemies of our LAWFUL government and NOT LEGITIMATE. They are treasonous by their action and would fully deserve the appropriate penalty which is death, traditionally. They prove by their actions, like the Democrats in their zeal in Virginia, which they KNOW has a tradition of holding to their values. The Virginia deal is a DELIBERATE ATTEMPT to start chaos to take down this nation, and they need to be wiped out for their treasonous attempt. They even primed it by having some of their tame Antifa thugs, an arm of the Globalist DNC, join in the demonstration — and we KNOW that they will start mass shootings, as their members already have in stores around the country — that is proven behavior. So the Democrats and their Hitlerian Antifa crowd will almost CERTAINLY start a false flag attack that will start another Civil War AS THE DEMOCRATS HAVE CALLED FOR. It will be done so it “is no fault of their own”, or at least so that they will CLAIM THAT. It WILL be a LIE, of course. How much of this CRAP are we going to allow before we DEMAND that OUR President tells the Marines to take the traitors out and federalizes the VA National Guard, which he CAN DO.

  7. Indeed I believe the gentleman was stating what he intended. A pellet gun is one that fires a formed lead “pellet” generally with a heavy forward end and a flared skirt which seals the propelling gas, which is either provided by a spring piston creating a sudden increase in gas pressure behind the pellet thus driving it out of a rifled steel barrel or from a stored gas supply such as carbon dioxide. The arms are more powerful than BB guns and are quite to extremely accurate. A BB gun drives a .177 steel sphere, by striking the sphere with the face of the piston which hits the steel BB, driving it through a restriction at the rear of a smooth tube which guides the sphere toward the intended target.
    Thus a BB gun and a pellet gun are distinct and very different.

  8. Basically, we MUST put down the tyranny of the Democrats in power in some states and take down China by economic means, enough that the Chinese will take their own country back and join with the rest of the world. Whether we wanted it or not, we ARE in WWIV, and it is against the Globalists and their puppet regime in china. Iran is not even part of it, the PEOPLE in Iran are NOT our enemies, and Trump KNOWS THIS. But we MUST stop China’s expansionism under the Globalist control, as it is a perpetuation of Evil Incarnate. No honest country is our enemy, just the Globalist raqpists that have been raping and destroying ALL countries on this Earth. FAR better to fight THEM than let them sink us into chaos. They ARE doing that, and China is importing Fentanyl and tainted medicines and vaccines that they make for us (NO MORE CAN BE ALLOWED, we MUST make them ourselves, FOR OURSELVES. CLEAN medicines and vaccines) in following their Globalist masters purposes of wiping us all out. That INCLUDES the Chinese as well, they are just too stupid to see that, kinda funny….

  9. I’m an orthodox Jew and I pray daily at a synagogue a few blocks down the street from where the Machete attack occurred. I didn’t wake up because of that Saturday night and decide to carry. I carry since the attack on a Pittsburgh synagogue over a year ago, as do many of our congregants but the number is up since that Saturday night. Orthodox Jews are politically conservative and much more in line with southern Baptists then with the likes of Adam Schiff, Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, etc. We know we’re targeted. Our orthodox first responders, Chaverim and Hatzolah, have trained with the Ramapo Police Dept. in active shooter drills using two of the local chedarim (orthodox grade schools). Unfortunately it will take an incident like the White Settlement church in Texas before the bad guys learn our synagogues are not soft targets. In my shul its known that we don’t dial 911.

  10. Since the invention of firearms every wanna-be tyrant or despot has attempted to deny or restrict them to those they wanted to subjugate or control. The Founding Fathers were perfectly aware of this, and wrote the Second Amendment as a guarantee that citizens could protect themselves against government tyranny:

    “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to permit the conquered Eastern peoples to have arms. History teaches that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so.” —Adolf Hitler

    “The measures adopted to restore public order are: First of all, the elimination of the so-called subversive elements …. They were elements of disorder and subversion. On the morrow of each conflict I gave the categorical order to confiscate the largest possible number of weapons of every sort and kind. This confiscation, which continues with the utmost energy, has given satisfactory results.” – Benito Mussolini

    “A system of licensing and registration is the perfect device to deny gun ownership to the bourgeoisie”. – Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

    “The revolution is now over, and all good revolutionaries must turn in their firearms” – Fidel Castro

    “I have to do it under the table.” – Barack Hussein Obama

    Conversely …

    “A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.” – George Washington

    “Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence.” – George Washington.

    “Arms in the hands of individual citizens may be used at individual discretion…in private self-defense.” – John Adams

    “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” – Thomas Jefferson

    “To disarm the people is the most effective way to enslave them.” – George Mason

    ” The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.” — Justice Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833

  11. I’m more than happy to uncover this page. I need to to thank you for ones time for this fantastic read!! I definitely enjoyed every little bit of it and I have you book-marked to see new stuff on your site.

  13. You really make it appear so easy along with your presentation but I in finding this matter to be actually something which I believe I might never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your subsequent put up, I will attempt to get the hold of it!

  14. I was recommended this web site by my cousin. I am not sure whether this
    post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my problem.
    You are incredible! Thanks!
