Weapons Confiscation in the Territories

leave a comment »

This column from Arutz Sheva points out that even in Israel, where wepons are common, gun control is a threat: “Well, last Thursday, the civilian head of Hebron’s security apparatus, Yoni Bleichbard, who is employed by the Defense Ministry, received a phone call from an officer in the Hebron brigade. She notified Yoni that his weapon’s license, permitting him to carry an M-16 rifle, had been voided and that he was now classified as ‘weapons-negated’. ”

The columnist points out that no reason was given for the revocation of this person’s, or several other persons’, gun permits. Presumably, the guns are taken to avoid any conflict in a future withdrawal. Unfortunately, this also makes the Israelis involved, and given their roles in their communities, many other Israelis, less safe.
