Politically weird? Why would anyone think that Jews owning firearms and supporting the right to self defense weird? Has the author never heard the phrase "Never Again!" It would be pretty toothless if all they had to stop another Shoah or pogrom was strong e-mail and angry letters. "You stop that wanton murder of our people or we will hold up really angry placards!"

What is politically weird is a group of people who have been raped, beaten, driven out of home after home robbed and murdered for thousands of years NOT picking up a weapon in self defense.

As I once wrote on Usenet, "So picketing Auschwitz would have saved the lives of Markus
Jakubovic's family? "

Nazi's thought it was weird for Jews to own guns too... which is why they disarmed them before they killed them. God forbid somebody demanding the ability to defend themselves from a repeat of that huh? Yeah... very weird....
