Since the recent Hamas terrorist attacks in Israel, there has been a huge increase in sales of guns and ammo in Florida. This is especially true among Jews.
A gun shop owner in Hollywood, Florida, told WPLG that guns and ammunition are selling as fast as he is able to stock (and then re-stock) them.
“Mostly Israelis and Orthodox Jews,” according to Kowalsky, make up the wave of new clients.
He went on to say, “They just want to learn how to protect their families with a gun at home or on them. There has been a huge public show of how common anti-Semitism and hate speech are since this past week. People have said horrible things about Jews and want to get rid of them.”
Endi Tennenhaus told WPLG that many of the guys in her church are getting guns to feel safer, but she also wants Jewish women to think about self-defense.
He said, “We asked, ‘What do you think about women?’ Things need to be done to get ready. To keep ourselves safe and know how to use a gun, in case we find ourselves in need of one.”
Breitbart News revealed that Israelis in the Samaria area of the West Bank were waiting in line to obtain gun permits in order to arm themselves for the protection of their own lives, their community, and Israel itself.
Also revealed was that Israel’s National Security Minister, Itamar Ben Gvir, said that 10,000 assault weapons would be bought and given to citizen security teams in border towns.
Although Ben Gvir has faced criticism for being an “extremist” in the past, he won the election in 2022 after he advocated for arming more Israelis and establishing an armed “national guard” in reaction to riots by Israeli Arabs in opposition to Israeli Jews.
