With acts of anti-Semitism becoming more prevalent throughout the country, a Jewish pro-gun group is touting the importance of the Second Amendment for defense against hate groups.
“If anything should motivate you to learn about your precious American right to keep and bear arms and to use your freedom to arm yourself, the current dramatic rise in anti-Semitism is it,” Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO) recently said in a released statement. “If you don’t understand that, shame on you, and you deserve what you get.”
Citing atrocities of the past, JPFO stressed that the same thing could happen here to groups not willing to utilize their Second Amendment rights to protect themselves and their families.
“History is repeating itself,” the JPFO statement continued. “Wake up, children. Get armed, get trained, don’t become a victim. Yes, our position is more people properly armed. What is the anti-Semite’s position?”
