Europe's Top Rabbi: The EU Must Authorize and Train Jews to Carry Guns to Defend Their Own Lives

To even begin to justify the stripping of a citizen's rights to carry a gun, a state must be able to guarantee, with 99% certainty, that the citizen has no need of a gun, for the state is doing a good enough job of protecting him that it is 99% certain he'll never need that gun.

What happens when the state can't manage anything close to that?

One of Europe’s most prominent Jewish organizations is petitioning the European Union to pass new legislation that would permit Jewish community members to carry guns "for the essential protection of their communities," according to a letter obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

...

The recent attacks, including one on a Kosher market that killed four, "have revealed the urgent need to stop talking and start acting" in a way that empowers Europe's Jews, according to a letter sent Tuesday by EJA General Director Rabbi Menachem Margolin to EU leaders.

The EU, which has enacted very stringent gun control laws, should empower and train Jews to be proficient with guns in order to maintain their safety, according to Margolin.

Worth reading. Of course, the EU will say no -- the state's monopoly on the use of lawful violence trumps any mere Jew's right to live -- but it will be darkly fascinating to read the reasons for rejecting such an elemental and necessary right.
