This leads to the conclusion that the Ministry of Internal Security is mixing the security companies with private human rights. It is presenting Israel’s citizenry with completely distorted data and due to a single incident, seeks to force all the private arms bearers in Israel to undergo a humiliating psychological evaluation.
The result of this course of action is that the amount of weapons carried by the public will continue to decrease and in those 70 percent of terror or criminal attacks, the responsible citizens with guns will not be able to protect the public.
In years past, Police chiefs Assaf Hefetz and Shlomo Aharonishki called on licensed gun owners to carry their weapons with them. They even declared that they consider those arms-bearing citizens an integral part of the security lineup.
But the process toward loss of liberty continues to unravel Israeli society. In the interim, we are losing both our security and our liberty.
