Look it up. New York state has permitles carry for long arms. If you are over 18 you can walk into a store and buy a rifle (after a federal background check). Now in regards to small arms, (pistols) in new York state, you can buy one at 21. Carrying may be a little more difficult.

Every shul should buy one and keep it in a safe and easily accessible place. It’s a matter of walking in to any gun store. Learn your Rights

Yea that makes total sense, buy a gun and keep it locked up, because you will have ample time to sneak over and unlock the safe in the middle of an attack. Every shul needs shomrim with guns, period.

I grew up in Monsey, as a Reformed/Conservative Jew, many years ago. The Hassidic will not carry weapons on Shabbat, or probably not ever, Our religion teaches non-violence. The best they could do, but will face religious argument, is to post armed, pre-paid, Shabbos Goy around every neighborhood. It’s a large area. I’m not even sure if it’s possible.

We have seen proof after proof of our blood spilled in the streets, shuls, schools, and homes. The Torah says if law violates the Torah don’t follow it. NY State violates the Constitutional right to use guns the Torah says if someone comes to kill you or do harm end their life first use no restraint. It’s not done for joy or want it’s done for survival. I don’t care about color or creed they come to kill or hurt us stop being passive sheep in a field being open season with a lazy shepherd
