Orthodox Jewish Rabbi, David Bendory, heads up Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership. He’s acutely aware of the gun restrictions which preceded Hitler’s genocide in WWII Germany. Raised in leftie Essex NJ, guns were not part of his upbringing. His views changed drastically after visits to Israel, where heavily armed guards are everywhere, and after the 2008 Islamic terrorist attacks in Mumbai, in which Jews were among those specifically targeted.
Membership in the rather small gun owners organization has skyrocketed in the last 18 months under the stewardship of Rabbi Bendory. Learn more about gun toting Jews and their views HERE.
