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.

Jewish Marksmen Prominent in Newsmax Top 100 Gun Rights Advocates List

A news publication called Newsmax recently published a list of who it considers the top 100 most influential gun rights advocates.  I identified at least three Jews:
14. Mark Levin, conservative talk radio host and Constitutional attorney, a gun owner and strong supporter of the Second Amendment.
22. Ben Shapiro, editor-at-large of Breitbart News, who is a strong supporter of the right to bear arms.
69. Steven Spielberg, movie producer and director, is a skeet shooter and owns a large arsenal of weapons, including guns from each of his movies. Fabbri, the luxury Italian gunmaker, has a photo of Spielberg on their website holding one of his custom Fabbri guns with a "Jurassic Park" engraving.
The article does not say how the list was assembled.  Frankly, there were quite a few names I've never heard of, and some who might be a little iffy.  Personally I think there are a number of Jews that were left off the list who could have been included, but it was nice to see those listed above.

Mazal tov to all of the list members!
