OK, whoever lives where concealed carry is allowed should obtain a firearm, learn to use it, practice regularly and carry.

Any suggestions for those of us who live places where concealed carry is not allowed? Can we be eiver dina dimalchusa dina for pikuakh nefesh?

It’s so clear what’s happening in the world- we have no real physical recourse for what’s going on. Where can we run? The only thing left is to look at the Torah where it says clearly that the reason for this exile is sinas chinum. This means slandering people, showing unwarranted contempt and ill-will toward people we don’t even know: someone in the street, in the store, embarrassing someone in public. Thinking that this person appears to be alone in the world so there will be no consequences. But sooner or later, there are. Always. To the community, to oneself-… Read more »

A Jew with a white beard walking at 9am to Shul with his Talis and all the levushim-that can only be a hate crime. You do not approach a Jew and then fire accidentally… Btw most thugs are sleeping at 9am so this was planned.

We are all so sad,angry, and shocked by this news. May his soul be blessed and lift to the highest levels in Gan Eden and may he now ask Hashem how long do we Jew have to suffer and how many more lives have to be sacrificed before the coming of Moahiach??

This is heartbreaking! I just want to say that if you are ever robbed at gun point and, for whatever reason do not give or prove that you have nothing to hand over, there is a high percentage that the assailant will fire his gun either to critically harm you or kill you. This why, when visiting countries like Brazil, you are told to alway have money on you in the highly likely case that you are robbed. I’m not rulling out anti-semetism here. But I just want to say that it could be that the robbers, thinking they would… Read more »

Do you really think criminals will stop using guns? No, if “gun control” is implemented, the criminals will be the ONLY ones with guns. Granted we cannot carry one on Shabbos but at least during the week we can have a means of self-defense.

The media is covered up an obvious act of anti-Semitism. This area was vandalized not two weeks ago. The same people came back to make a bigger tumult. Obviously the local PD DIDN’T react.

Now if this was an incident in another type of community (think Treyvon Martin) there would be riots. We need a demonstration ASAP To show that we will not be quiet. And we will not allow acts of hate. Can the leadership organize this right away in NMB?

Lastly, we need moshiach RIGHT AWAY!!!
