I certainly hope that the TOI is slanting this article because the reactions from the rabbis mentioned here sure are depressing. Of course, no surprise at the Colorado ADL’s reaction. The murder of Jews by a white guy is a fund-raising win for them. It’s not worth wasting space to mention that crazy-eyed representative from California.
The Jewish owner of a gun shop in Colorado has offered to give rabbis semi-automatic rifles for free following the murder of 11 worshippers at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh.
Mel Bernstein, who owns Dragon Arms near Colorado Springs, made the offer in an item aired Wednesday on KOAA-TV’s News5.
“Lets say there’s a fire in a synagogue. What do you grab? You grab a fire extinguisher, right?” Bernstein, who goes by the name Dragonman, said on the NBC affiliate’s program. “OK, lets say somebody comes in and starts shooting everybody. What are you going to grab? You grab your AR-15 or a rifle or a handgun.”
During the shooting Saturday, “people sitting in the synagogue, they were sitting ducks,” and “nobody’s stopping him,” Bernstein said of the shooter, who authorities say was right-wing extremist Robert Bowers. “You have to have the tool to fight back, and this is the tool, and I’m donating these to the rabbis.”
