Perhaps we Americans can learn a lesson or two from our Israeli neighbors. In light of recent stabbing and shootings against Jews in Israel, Minister of Education Naftali Bennett has told civilians to pick up arms and be prepared to defend themselves:
Against the cowardly Arab terrorism, a wave of Jewish courage is rising to defeat it,” he said, visiting a protest tent in front of the Prime Minister’s Residence, in which demonstrators called for more action against terrorism. Bennett said that “wherever there is a terrorist, citizens rise to defend their brothers and eliminate the enemy. In the Kirya in Tel Aviv and Kiryat Arba, Petah Tikva and Kiryat Gat, we see great heroism and great friendship.
As the debate over gun violence and control continues to rage on in America, we should keep all of our options open. Maybe we DO need more good guys with guns.
