rebuttals to "Gun Control"
March 26th, 2013
Although from 2009, this video (below) does demonstrate that not all Jews are against self defense! It is to be hoped that since then, more have taken responsibility for their synagogue protection. (NOTE: the video may not play in Firefox, in which case use an alternate browser.)
With Houses Of Worship Constantly Under Threat,
Former NYC Cop Offers Class Designed To Keep People Inside Safe.
Some might call it the "God squad," others a proactive approach to safety. A rabbi in Queens is beginning a training program aimed at keeping places of worship worry free. Inside a Kew Gardens place of prayer is a team of experts whose goal is to make synagogues safer by teaching martial arts, how to use a gun and protecting worshipers if someone came in with guns blaring.
It's the brainchild of Rabbi Gary Moscowitz, a former New York City cop who said synagogues are natural targets. "It comes from the FBI. Just call the FBI. They issue terror alerts to synagogues on a regular basis here," Moscowitz said. Moscowitz pointed to this spring's attempted bombing of two Bronx synagogues as an example for the need. "This is an insurance policy. I hope it never has to go into effect," Moscowitz said. Now he's put together a team that's selling safety because police can only be in so many places. "What police officer, even if they were parked in front of the synagogue, hear a firefight. We'll be dead," Moscowitz said. "Our idea is you can't be spiritual if you're dead. You have to be able to fight back to live another day," martial arts expert Stuart Rosenberg said. To help with protection, Moscowitz is pushing state lawmakers to allow at least five people at houses of worship to carry a gun, but only after training.
When asked if all this precaution was truly necessary, Moscowitz said, "I believe so." So does another rabbi whose synagogue has signed up. "God forbid and God save us that someone would try to attack us. Why not let us know the skill in advance and be prepared just in case," said Rabbi Mordechai Hecht. The team is charging $1,000 a person for a 100-hour class. CBS 2 HD has been told a handful of synagogues in Florida, California and Vancouver are interested
