Yet another probable front man of the US weapons lobby has repeated this not-new but definitely crazy statement.
A ten-year old can do the math. If Jews would have had weapons, the Gentiles, among them the anti-Semites, would have had weapons too. The non-Jews were 134 times more numerous and the Jew haters among them would have killed all the Jews in one shoot-out.
Before WW II, Gandhi recommended for the German Jews non-violent resistance because an armed struggle would not be won but would lead to a lot of bloodshed that could be prevented. Unfortunately, on hindsight that advice looks ridiculous too.
The only thing that could have saved most Jews was what only a few did: Many national non-anti-Semitic leaders who welcomed the Jews into their non-anti-Semitic countries, like China, the Philippines , etc.
In any case, gun violence in the US comes from gun ownership, not lack of guns. In many countries the police even goes about unarmed, which never lead to greater gun violence.
In Israel we have much weaponry going over street, but Jews were not nursed on movies of Whites shooting Natives and Police shooting crooks. And Jews don’t like to hunt or kill for pleasure. Besides, the criteria for gun permission here are gruesome. The US needs national disarmament. Let the youth take over and correct the system.
