  1. It takes more than a carry permit to make a responsible weapon owner. That means spending $ on range time, ammo, and safe storage of your weapons and ammo.

  2. Studies consistantly show that owning a gun doesn’t make you any safer, it makes you “FEEL” Safer. When you FEEL safer, you tend to take more risks. It also come with significant risks to your family members. Before you spend the time & money on a gun hobby, ask your Rebbi if this is the best idea for yourself & your family. The number 1 victim of legal gun ownership is the owner himself through suicide. Most legal gun deaths happen by the owner killing himself. Don’t think that frum Yidden are immune from this. A frum relative of mine had a legal gun & had untreated bipolar, he began to become violent & a restraining order was issued which led to the end of his marriage & messed up his family. His gun was a danger to his family & quite possibly supported his sense of macho which precluded him from agreeing to get the emotional help he needed. Guns create more problems then they solve, in many cases. It should only be gotten as a last resort. In Europe a century ago there were secularized Yidden who organized armed self defense brigades to protect the Jews from pogroms. They would proudly march around with their guns showing. This instigated more antisemitism & instead of stopping the pogroms, more peasants participated in them, & resulted in more deaths. (As recorded in the book “In the midst of civilized Europe”) Chazal Teach us That physical force belongs to Eisav & in Golus, Yidden need to be very careful not to instigate Eisav by copying his tactics.
