Jews and Gun Control

Dear Jean:

Thanks for your kind words about the MI and me.

Yes, my fellow co religionists are so smart, IQ wise, and so stupid in many other contexts.

Best regards,

Subject: Jews for Gun Control as well

Good morning Prof Block!

Hope you are well.  I’m up here in Maine, where it’s like trying to find a needle in the haystack when it comes to COVID-1984.  But, that’s a different subject.  I read your post about how Jews are supporting BLM.  But I also seem to recall there was support for gun control, amongst politicians(So I making an assumption that the people that put them in office, which includes Jews, also support it)

Pardon me for my assumptions, but people like Dianne Feinstein, and Charles Schumer, and the late Howard Metzabaum come to mind.  (There maybe even more)

It’s mind blogging to me, given that what happened in the holocaust would make Jews very leary of any law that limits the ability to obtain firearms for personal protection.  However, I am a big fan of yours, and I greatly admired the late great Aaron Zelman, who found the JPFO(Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership)  I’m a lifetime member, and I’m Catholic, but what your religion is shouldn’t determine your stance on firearms.  We are all humans, and it’s well documented in the JPFO documentary, “Innocence Betrayed”, that the first thing that is done to create a genocide is to confiscate all private firearms.  People really don’t know much about history as the old song goes.

Bless you and all of you at Lew  I’ve gotten more of an education from here than I did in the 12 years of schooling, and 4 years of college.  Continued success always.
