Orthodox Jews Open Carry AR Rifles After Anti-Semitic Attacks

Some members of the Jewish community have armed themselves in light of recent anti-Semitic attacks.

Some members of New York’s Orthodox Jewish community were seen open carrying AR rifles at a community event on Sunday, a day after a man attacked a rabbi’s home with a machete, sending five people to the hospital with injuries.

Another attack occurred in Jersey City earlier this month at a Jewish grocery where where four people were killed.

The two attacks specifically targeting New York City’s Jewish community appear to have motivated some members of the community to arm themselves in self-defense.

The armed men were attending a community event intended to strengthen spirits in light of the traumatic events.

New York is a state that enacts some of the most Orwellian gun control policies in the country, and some questioned if the men’s rifles were legal under the state’s laws. Open carry is heavily restricted in New York, and only “featureless” AR rifles that contain cosmetic modifications can be legally bought and sold in the state.

In any case, it’s a shame the men may be afoul of the state’s gun laws in an environment where it appears some members of the general public are inclined to target Jews. It’s hard to imagine that New York prosecutors would go after the men after the two attacks on the Jewish community, but if they did, some Jews who wish to arm themselves in self-defense might feel left with no choice other than to move to a state where peaceful gun ownership is legal.

The men may feel a prescient need for armed self-defense after an attack on a Texas church Sunday was thwarted by an armed congregation member. The retired police officer neutralized a shotgun-wielding gunman who opened fire on churchgoers.

Florida Man Shoots Three Armed Home Invaders, Two Killed

Thank God for the Second Amendment.

A Florida man defended his property from three armed home invaders who broke into his house in Wesley Chapel early Friday morning.

The unnamed homeowner was reportedly playing video games when he heard a window being broken at around one in the morning.

Two home invaders, who have been identified as Luis Casado, 21, and Khyle Durham, 21 were both shot and killed as they approached the thus-unnamed homeowner in a hallway. A third criminal suspect, Jeremiah Trammel, 19, fled the home after being shot by the resident. He was later arrested by a civilian armed with a weapon of his own, and has since been charged with home invasion robbery. He’s also being charged with second-degree murder in the deaths of his two accomplices, for the commission of a crime which resulted in their deaths.

Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco is describing the incident as a clear-cut example of self-defense. “The victim in this case was exercising his Second Amendment right to protect himself in his home,” he said of the event. He’s reporting that all three of the men have previous criminal records, which include “extremely violent” crimes.

Sheriff Nocco has said that the victim of the home invasion believes he may have been targeted because of his extensive gun collection, of which he had occasionally posted pictures of on social media. The Vector rifle he used in the incident is somewhat of a rare firearm for civilian ownership, having been originally designed for use as a submachine gun by law enforcement and militaries.

As another law-abiding citizen utilizes his weapon to lawfully defend his home from criminals intent on doing him harm, liberals and Democrats appeared more determined to seize the guns of American patriots than ever before.
