A few years ago at a family gathering, my sister, her husband and my cousin had something of an intervention with me questioning why I was a 'gun nut'. (Doubly amazing in that the cousin was also a Trump voter, but based on economic policy rather than the 2A) I replied with all of the facts and statistics of which we are all aware, but in the end I said that if anyone should appreciate the unique American liberty represented by the 2A, it should be us since the much of the world has spent five thousand years trying to kill us, managed to kill off the entire European side of our family and will probably spend the next five thousand years trying to finish the job. I was met with the usual 'it can't happen here" baloney. I told them of the multiple instances of antisemitism I have had to deal with including finding a KKK leaflet under my windshield wiper. In the end I convinced nobody and said "mark my words, it is getting worse around the world and it will get worse here too".
You could have knocked me over with a feather when my sister told me after the Jersey City attack that I 'might' be right. Better late than never. Now, if she will just take me up on the offer to visit the range the next time she's here.
It IS going to get worse because the left has decided it's okay to vilify Jewish people, and the Left controls the narrative because they run the media, hollywood, academia, and much of the government. Then when antisemitism happens, they just turn around and blame it on conservatives and the tea party.
I've never seen or heard the kkk or neo nazis at a tea party event, at a gun rights event, or a republican event. Neo nazis are adherents to hitler, who was a progressive socialist.
I'm not Jewish, but I beg my Jewish friends to wake up, arm up, and train, because the left is out of control.
