Israel & Guns

Israel proves the NRA's arguments. In reality, Israel's gun policy is living proof of the arguments the American gun lobby has been making for years.
Interesting.... years ago private gun ownership was difficult in Israel, and antigun groups pointed out that they had no 2nd Amendment rights there, and wasn't that a great example for the USA. But after the increase in knife and other attacks started and grew, the ever pragmatic Israelis adapted, and made gun ownership readily available to citizens, with training, and instituted a program of arming and training teachers in particular. Now a lot of people carry, and more attacks are stopped by armed citizens than by police or military. Somehow the antigun groups that praised Israel in the past for their rules don't seem to have caught up on the current situation. Just too busy to notice, I guess. --Del
