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.

Gabriella Hoffman - Jewish Markswoman and Second Amendment Advocate

Gabriella Hoffman is Jewish "conservative activist/blogger," who has been "shooting since age 19." You can read more about her biography at her blog: http://thegabriellahoffman.com/about/ and her current job https://www.leadershipinstitute.org/contactus/staff.cfm?staff=511574.

One of her recent columns is "More Guns, Less Tyranny" available at TownHall.com. I believe she was interviewed by an NRA podcast about that article, and will try to follow up with an audio link if I can find it. She has written many other pro-gun columns you can easily find via google.

Gabriella joins a growing list of influential Jewish columnists who staunchly support the Second Amendment (including Ben Shapiro, Mark Levin, Debbie Schlussel, Dennis Prager and others). She is further proof that contrary to many misinformed narratives, American Jews are at the forefront of Second Amendment support.

William Warshal - National Champion Revolver Shooter

According to The Jewish Transcript, a Seattle paper dated June 23, 1933, Warshal was:
"the first Jew to be on the national junior championship team of the United States Revolver Association." 
According to The Jewish Floridian paper, dated October 25, 1935, then:

"rank[ed] as the nation's number one Jewish marksman, having won the national championship for picket revolver shooting at the U.S. Revolver Association's meet."

I didn't find much else. Anyone with information please feel free to comment.
