Jewish Group Raffling Off AR-15 Rifles, Because "Gun Control Is Not Kosher"

Oy vey. A Jewish pro-gun group is raffling off some of the strangest AR-15 rifles we've ever seen.

The rifles from Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership come engraved with a Star of David, fashioned like an American flag with rifles on either side, as well as the phrase, "Gun control is not kosher."

Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership isn't exactly what you'd call a mainstream Jewish organization (the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, on the other hand, supports many gun-control proposals).

For example, while you're purchasing raffle tickets for the above AR-15, you can also purchase the following poster:

Despite Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership being a Wisconsin-based organization, the online ad repeatedly says that the raffle is being held by an "Arizona charity."

Not only is this due to state laws, but also because the executive director of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership is Charles Heller. Heller also works for the Arizona Citizens Defense League, a pro-gun lobbying group that has been advocating guns on school campuses around the state, among many other gun-nut laws.

Heller's operating under the belief that gun control is a direct cause of the Holocaust, which landed him on the Daily Show earlier this year.



Still, the engraved AR-15 rifles seem pretty cool -- if you think a hypothetical '70s exploitation movie about a Hasidic Jew who goes on vigilante missions with a powerful rifle that reads, "Gun control is not kosher," seems cool too.

Kinda doubt this whole load of crap. If this is really true; These idiots cant count on me for being Jewish or wanting to be associated with true Jews. If this is true; its appalling. To say the least.

If you take the time to watch the video (again), you'll see that Heller suggests that the confiscation and destruction of firearms "...helped lead to the Holocaust".

He never suggests that "gun control is a direct cause of the Holocaust."

Matthew was either hearing what he wanted to hear, or simply writing what he wanted us to believe.

Confiscation and destruction is not "gun control", and "helped lead to" is not the same as "a direct cause of".

It's certainly a lot easier to round up people and ship them off to the ovens after you've removed their ability to defend themselves.

What part of it seems hard to believe?  You think Jews don't believe in the right to keep and bear arms?

Actually, confiscation and destruction would be the goal of gun control if Diane Feinstein had her way. But your main point is correct.

@marcy Are you really stupid enough to believe that a bunch of beer- bellied rednecks running around with AKs and Bushmasters can fight modern weapons tecnology, 

Some pimple faced kid can sit in mom's basement with a joystick and give you a drone enema from halfway across the country and you think your popguns are going to protect you? Are you really that thick.

@shadeaux14 @marcy Are you really stupid enough to believe that a military that couldn't find an itinerant bedouin in a country the size of Texas is going to fare any better with determined citizens with over 60 million arms?

If your impression of gun owners is "beer-bellied rednecks", you should stop getting your news from political cartoons and take a trip to a gun store or shooting range.

If you think the U.S. military is effective against civil insurrections, you should take a moment and review the last 50 years of military history.

If you think that pre-emptive surrender is better than a difficult fight to protect our rights, you don't deserve the freedom you enjoy.

So you advise submission? Really?

@Marcy If all you peckerwoods REALLY want to be able to defend yourselves, get a degree in computer science. Then you might be able to fuck with the governments weapon systems. The only good small arms are going to do is if you manage to eat a bullet before the black helicopters land.

I have no interest in "fucking" with the US government, they aren't trying to exterminate me or anyone else.  But if they were I'd stand a better chance with an AR-15 than cowering under my bed like you.
