    Are they? How small? Because it seemed like a pretty dominant "small" (???) subset.

    Well, the whole march was organized by Jason Kessler, a noted white supremacist, and a white supremacist killed Heather Heyer and injured a bunch of other people by ramming his car into them.

    If you show up at an event organized by a white supremacist with the intention of joining it, I'm probably going to assume you are one yourself.

    I dunno. What's their propensity for splitting up families?

    In the context of gun control.

    I know of no better way to respect Jewish people, than to respect their inalienable right to keep and bear arms. We do not do this in this country, and we should. Aggression is outlawed, and on top of that we have 'hate crime' laws that increase penalties when aggression is deemed motivated by attitudes like antisemitism, the laws are already doing even more than they can to respect and protect Jewish people. The laws that need to change are the gun control laws, that make it even a little bit more difficult for a Jewish person to acquire, keep, and carry superlative weaponry in their own, and in their families' defense.

    Four armed police officers were shot before he was apprehended. So, you think that the four trained police couldn't stop him safely, but maybe a few random yahoos might have?

    Typical irrational nonsense from the American gun cult.

    Yeah. But I wouldn't refer to Jewish people as 'yahoos.'

    We need to get more extreme in reflection to how extremely Democrat lawmakers want to contravene the Bill of Rights, which says that the right of the Jewish people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

    I think having more than four guns shooting at a crazed lunatic who started shooting up a building I'm in has a better chance of stopping him than four lone policemen and a bunch of unarmed civilians.

    four trained police officers who had to come running onto the site from elsewhere

    imagine how differently this would have played out if Daniel Stein, 71; Joyce Feinberg, 75; Richard Gottfried, 65; Rose Mallinger, 97; Jerry Rabinowitz, 66; brothers Cecil Rosenthal, 59, and David Rosenthal 54; husband and wife Bernice Simon, 84 and Sylvan Simon, 86; Melvin Wax, 88; and Irving Younger, 69 had all been in a position to return fire

    Or any of the other Jewish people there. It would have been a mess. But the good guys would have won.
