Very well written article. Devorah Halberstam brought lots of good to Crown Heights and continues to work very hard for the community.

I must concur.
Terrorists and felons do not buy their weapons legally. The only people who do are law abiding citizens who, thanks to the restricting laws, now can’t get meaningful protection.
The cities in the U.S. with the strongest gun control laws have the highest incidents of murder. The reason is because criminals and terrorists shy away from places where their chance of success is lowered by such things as law abiding and gun carrying citizens. As mentioned above, they don’t follow the law so banning guns doesn’t impact them as much.
