After the recent terror attack in Israel the country is starting to change its philosophy on gun carry laws, at least in some sense.
An attack on Jerusalem last night left several people dead and several others injured at a synagogue. Two Palestinian attackers armed with a gun and knives killed 4 people in the synagogue and this has ramped up security at holy places across the nation. Some were calling the scene worse than anything they have seen.
The two attackers were killed by police, but not before they carried out their deadly plot. Now the Public Security Minister of Israel seems to be realizing that the brutal massacre could have been stopped or minimized if the attackers faced some resistance from armed good guys.
According to TimesofIsrael.com,
Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch pledged to ease controls on carrying weapons for self-defense after a gruesome terrorist attack at a Jerusalem synagogue that left four dead Tuesday.
It was not clear exactly what new measures would be put in place, but it was reported that the move would apply to anyone licensed to carry a gun, such as private security guards and off-duty army officers.
The morning attack took place at a synagogue in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Har Nof, on the western outskirts of the city.
“I’ve seen attacks with much higher death tolls, but the scenes this time were worse than any I have seen,” ZAKA head Yehuda Meshi Zahav told Army Radio.
He also protested the fact that gruesome images have been posted on the internet, exacerbating the grief of the victims’ families.
Hamas is celebrating this brutal attack, but at least Israel is coming to the realization that it takes a good guy with a gun to stop a bad guy with a gun. They have a long way to go, but at least this might be a step in the right direction.
