Rise in Gun Sales: Jews Are Arming
In the wake of terror wave, residents of Jerusalem neighborhoods are taking advantage of new regulations that allow them to arm.
Gun shop owners are reporting a spike in gun sales, as a result of the current terror wave, and also of new regulations that allow more citizens to buy and hold guns.
Yitzchak Mizrahi, who owns the Magnum firearms store in Jerusalem, told Arutz Sheva Sunday that Jews are responding to the ongoing terror attacks in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, by buying more weapons, and that the new criteria issued by the Interior Ministry are making it possible for many people who could not do so in the past, to arm themselves.
“Weapons sales in recent months have jumped up a step,” Mizrahi said. “People feel less safe because of the terror attacks. An additional reason for the rise in gun sales is the new Interior Ministry criteria, which have added many locations that were forbidden in the past and that are allowed today. This gave a big boost to sales.”
