Why Philly Jews are arming themselves: ‘I’m going to go down fighting’

The Short Answer is: Never again.  Longer answer:  The Jews in Israel have learned the value of self defense and their example is seen by people around the world.

When you are a member of a minority group that is targeted for violence you should be prepared to act in your own self defense.

On Friday afternoon, with just a few hours before sundown and the start of the Sabbath, David Parvey hurried to a South Philadelphia gun shop called Firing Line to get his new 9-millimeter pistol.

To Parvey, who attends an Orthodox Jewish synagogue in Center City, it felt like the only rational response to the Oct. 27 mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, where 11 congregants were killed.

“I legally have the right to at least be able to match evil with some sort of response, and in my mind I would be dumb not to,” said Parvey, who on Wednesday went to the Philadelphia Police Department’s Gun Permit Unit to apply for a concealed-carry license. “I don’t want to hide behind the bimah waiting for my turn to get shot.”

Parvey is not the only one to reach this conclusion. A simmering conversation about safety in the face of anti-Semitic violence that began several years ago with attacks on Jewish targets in France — a yeshiva in Toulouse, a kosher supermarket and the Bataclan theater in Paris — has boiled over in the last week. While some are responding with prayer and peaceful protests, there are those who feel that a pistol is just more reliable.

“This shooting in Pittsburgh has turned me into an activist,” said Rahel Pachter, 61, of Merion, who met up with a couple of women from her synagogue on Sunday for breakfast, followed by a conversation about gun safety and a group trip to the firing range. “I feel like I have to start moving this, and I have to start getting more people involved in their security.”

It’s controversial, said Pachter, who got licensed about a year ago and, in frightening times, takes comfort from the reassuring weight of her Ruger LCP II or Taurus 709 Slim in its holster. Her rabbi doesn’t want congregants carrying in synagogue.

“It’s not something you’re supposed to even touch on the Sabbath,” she said. “I’m a daughter of a Holocaust survivor. I lost all my aunts and uncles in the Holocaust, and I’m going to go down fighting. I’m not walking into a gas chamber. I’m not going to stand there like a sitting duck … and get shot at. I refuse.”

This week, she contacted Jose Morales of Philly Firearms Academy in Willow Grove to see about group training.

Huffington Post: Night Vision Technology is Too Dangerous to be Owned by Civilians

From The Truth About Guns:   https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2018/11/luis-valdes/huffington-post-night-vision-technology-is-too-dangerous-to-be-owned-by-civilians/

The Huffington Post is huffing and puffing about civilian ownership of high-end quality optics. Writer Sascha Brodsky has apparently discovered that some deplorables out there enjoy hog hunting and wrote a breathless piece using a particularly flimsy straw man to support his argument that this kind of gear is simply too dangerous to be publicly available.

In his article, he recounted how a Chinese national attempted to purchase and export three pairs of night vision optics that may have been ultimately bound for North Korea. He was arrested in a DHS sting operation for violating the Arms Export Control Act and International Traffic in Arms Regulations.

In his hit piece, Brodsky writes:

If Kim had an export license, very little would have prevented him from sending the equipment to North Korea, which is a major concern for experts who warn that military-grade night vision gear could fall into the hands of terrorists or rogue states.

While the Las Vegas massacre rekindled the debate over the millions of assault-style rifles owned by American civilians, there’s been much less public scrutiny of all the gear designed for military operations that is now marketed directly to civilians.

Brodsky aims to increase that level of scrutiny.

Night vision equipment is a useful tool for civilians, advocates say. “When employed properly, night-vision equipment will open your eyes to the times usually dominated by four-legged critters and two-legged ne’er-do-wells, giving you the advantage,” claimed a May article in Shooting Illustrated, a publication of the National Rifle Association, on how to use the gear for “hunting and defense.”
