About the Blog

Educating fellow Jews about the sporting and defensive use of firearms. Especially Jews in North America, too many of whom are instilled with the belief that guns aren't for nice Jewish boys and girls.

If you know of notable Jewish shooters that should be documented on the blog, even if it is only at the local club level, I am happy to report and profile them. And don't be shy if that person to be documented is you! Please drop me a line at jewishmarksman at gmail dot com. Also follow me on twitter @JMarksmanship.

Self-defense in the Synagogue

Several friends have already forwarded this New York Post article to me, but if you haven't seen it, its worth a read. I agree with the rabbi's idea of an armed congregation; the local police are not trained or capable of dealing with a terrorist attack on a synagogue. Notable quote from the article:
"Jews are not like Christians," Moscowitz said. "If I turn my cheek, I'm coming around to make a kick."
Check out DoubleTapper's blog for pictures of armed congregants at a synagogue in Israel.

  1. American Jews that are not into guns tend to be skittish about guns. I won't say what shul, won't say who, but I will say there are several Yidden in a Jewish shooting club that carry concealed at at least one Michigan shul. Wish I could take a picture - I'd love to send one to Concealed Carry Magazine. Except, of course, it's all concealed.
