Jews Against the Power to Resist the Next Holocaust

It is with genuine bafflement that I learn of the American Jewish Committee filing an amicus brief in favor of Washington D.C.'s draconian citizen disarmament laws.

The American Jewish Committee filed an amicus brief with the United States Supreme Court today, asserting that the District of Columbia’s strict gun control laws do not offend the Constitution. The case, D.C. v. Heller, will be the first gun control case before the Supreme Court in sixty eight years.

“Gun control laws safeguard liberty, rather then restrict it,” said AJC General Counsel Jeffrey Sinensky. “Democracy can only flourish when the government is permitted to protect its citizens from harm.”
How can a subset of a people that has, for thousands of years, been subject to systematic slaughter--either with the government's tacit approval, or at the very hands of the government--advocate a government monopoly on force?

Guys, can't you talk some sense into these people? I hope, for the sake of the leadership of the AJC, that there is no life after this one--if there is, Golda Meir is gonna kick their asses.

Nicki has a superb, related piece here.

UPDATE: And now she has an even stronger post, referring to the same press release covered here. Go get 'em, Nicki.

Not to mention, of course, the six million-plus Jews killed from 1939 to 1945...

Good point, Pistolero.

Also, note that in their brief they manifest the belief that the DC City Government will protect them. The DC Govt. made these laws for their protection. In their twisted stockholm syndrome logic, they believe this. They must support whatever the DC Government wants to do because, in their minds, their continued protection depends upon them being really really nice to the DC Government.

We appreciate your support. Unfortunately Flash is right when he say that they learned nothing from the Holocaust. They only know the language of appeasement, and they don't care who's listening.

Thanks again for bringing this to your reader's attention.

Thanks for reading, and for commenting, guys.

Double Tapper, I just checked out your blog, and saw the photos. Remind me not to upset you.

OK, I lost my temper with the latest round of doublespeak from the AJC. I'm PISSED! These bastards DESERVE to be exterminated by the very tyrants to whom they want to give a monopoly on power!

Nicki, you're another person whom I'll try very hard to avoid pissing off.
