Actually, the idea of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership isn't really that random at all. Many Jews believe that the Holocaust was made possible by the disarming of the populace that occured in the wake of the Nazi Weapons Law of 1938, which made it illegal for Jews to acquire, possess, or carry weapons or ammunition.
I'm no gun nut, but I acknowledge that it might have been considerably more difficult to seize an entire populace had a significant percentage of that populace remained armed.
Similarly, I don't think the US is secretly plotting to kill off the Jews, but if I was Jewish and I learned about the Nazi Weapons Law of 1938, I'd seriously think twice about giving my assent to gun control laws.
I have to admire its sense, actually.posted by jbushnell at 12:24 PM on May 9, 2001
