In a world this dangerous, anything else invites trouble, victimhood

With lethal assaults on the Poway and Tree of Life synagogues as a backdrop, and blatant incidents of violent anti-Semitism reported regularly, Dov Marhoffer, a Holocaust survivor on the Advisory Board of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, is advising Jews to arm themselves, in a new video. He believes calls to disarm Jews or other innocent people are disgraceful. Training, he says, is essential.

In the short cinéma-vérité video, released worldwide today, Mr. Marhoffer laments how children are being used to corrupt the desperate Jewish call to arms, Never Again!, which became symbolic after WWII. These children, led by kids from a victimized Florida high school are being manipulated by adults pushing familiar so-called "gun-control" themes. They mislead people into believing that psychotic slaughter of school children can be affected by disarming (or "subarming") the general public. Making innocent people helpless does not make dangerous people harmless. Taking guns that people already own is infringement, banned by the U.S. Constitution--and a terrible policy choice. Mr. Marhoffer speaks from traumatic personal experience.

Fortunately, many Orthodox Jewish congregations, recognizing the threat is real, immediate and omnipresent, are quietly gearing up armed countermeasures, a move JPFO and Mr. Marhoffer encourage.

Watch Dov Marhoffer:


Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, http://www.jpfo.org is America’s most aggressive civil-rights organization, dedicated to destroying the notion of “gun control” as any kind of credible public-policy position. So-called “gun control” does not control guns and doesn’t control criminal behavior. What it does do is disarm the innocent, leaving them helpless in the face of criminals, tyrannical governments and genocide. History repeatedly proves this fact. Founded in 1989 by Aaron Zelman as a response to the Holocaust, JPFO speaks with the moral authority and tenacious commitment of survivors of persecution, and knows that surrendering your personal and family safety to government protection courts disaster. “You don’t have to be Jewish to fight by our side, you just have to love liberty.”
