    Page B3 of today's AJC has an article about a man in a red pickup truck who drives over the curb and hits Jews in Sandy Springs walking to and from religious services. The one incident described in great detail has him getting out of the truck afterward and physically attacking the man (who walks with a cane), pushing and striking him, stating, "You touched my truck," and, "I'm glad I'm not a Jew."

    This one man thought it was an isolated incident, but discovered it was happening to others.

    How long before this guy starts going further?

    I would inform them about JPFo_Org, but it occurs to me that in Georgia, the General Assembly, in its wisdom, has disarmed Jews attending religious servives at the time when they are most visible and vulnerable. The attacker knows not only when they will be walking to services but that they will be disarmed by law.

    . . . a person is guilty of a misdemeanor when he or she carries to or while at a public gathering any . . . firearm . . .

    If I Lived There

    If I lived there, near Sandy Springs, I would publicly offer to escort religious jews towards and from their places of worship on Friday nights, waiting just off the property of the religious institution in question until the trip back. I would make sure that everybody understood that I would have no more "authority" to do this than my status as a Georgia citizen with a civilian firearms license, and thus I could not come "to" the place of worship while armed.

    I would have a camera and a pistol. The camera would be to document a crime or any suspicious people in red trucks. The gun would be to stop an aggravated assault in progress, if it came to that. (As much as I'd like to say the pistol would be useful for shooting out the tires of the offending vehicle and virtually ensuring the capture of the offender, I can't think of any situation where you could legally shoot at the tires where it would not also be legal, and much more prudent from a self-preservation standpoint, to shoot the driver in the head.)

    Here is an AJC column, where you just might be able to reach a legislator by posting a comment . . .

    http://www.ajc.com/metro/content/shared ... gogue.html

    Rep. Wilkinson (R., Sandy Springs) is proposing that Georgia citizens stand by as some sort of protective cover for people walking to the synagogue.


    They actually let me post my comment this time!

    Stephanie's was, too! :D

    Yes, guns always answer all problems. Next thing you know mobs will be hunting down people in red trucks. Then mobs of people will be hunting down the mobs of people hunting down people in red trucks.


    :roll:

    These people vote, and their vote counts just as much as yours . . .

    Bravo ! What an excellent and powerful rebuttal to that hippie chick Stephanie. All said politely, too. This ought to be put in high school English books as an example of how sarcasm is supposed to be written.

    Thanks for posting the link.

    My :2cents: are in. There is already one antigun post. I guess the writer knew the two individuals were committing a crime, which is why the article does not reveal the names.

    This reminds me of an article I read a while back on Gunowners.org. Maybe Dunwoody Joe fits into this category... :lol:

    I hope they catch this idiot quickly.

    I also hope that the legislature takes this into consideration next session, along with the Gov.
