    Default Gun Permit Applications Surge Nearly 1,000% in New York Jewish Community

    Gun permit applications surged nearly 1,000 percent in New York’s Jewish community since the December 28, 2019, attack on Hasidic Jews in a rabbi’s home.

    The Washington Examiner [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] that the surge is clear in Rockland County, the very county in which the rabbi’s home was attacked. The Rockland County Clerk’s office reported the “nearly 1,000 percent increase in gun permit applications in the week following the Dec. 28 attack.”

    Erik Melanson, owner of Rockland County’s Precision Gunsmiths, said, “A lot of people are worried, especially the large Hasidic and Jewish community in Rockland County. I have had rabbis come in. Some of the rabbis already have concealed carry [permits].”

    On October 27, 2018, an attacker [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] 11 innocents at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. There was no armed security at the synagogue at the time of the attack.

    On April 27, 2019, an attacker [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] one innocent and wounded three others by opening fire on Chabad of Poway in San Diego, California.

    On December 10, 2019, two attackers killed a Jersey City police officer, then holed up in a Jewish market, where three civilians were killed.

    The New York Times [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] the December 28, 2019 attack in which a suspect armed with a machete wounded five Hasidic Jews in a rabbi’s home. The victims tried to defend themselves by throwing furniture at the attacker.

    Good for them but i hope they are prepared to wait a long time, pay a lot of money just to have most if not all of them denied. The sad truth of getting a permit in lower NY.

    Yup.


    It's great that all those applications filed...the question I'd like to see answered is.....how many get approved versus denied.

    Actually, the hard core conservative Orthodox Jews vote Republican. It is the moderate ones who vote Democrat
