As videos emerge from Israel about the recent invasion by Hamas, it should become clear that the Second Amendment here in the US is "Necessary to the security of a free state."
While gun control continues to be pushed by the Biden administration, Israel, a state lauded by gun control advocates for its strict regulations, has axed some of its gun control measures in an attempt to fight the recent terrorist invasion.

It's no wonder that Israel has realized that their gun control measures are getting their citizens hurt or worse. Horrifying video from border towns near Gaza shows Hamas fighters going house to house looking for Israelis.
Without access to firearms, Israeli citizens are helpless to defend themselves against these heavily armed fighters, resulting in kidnappings and killings.
You can thank our Founding Fathers we have the Second Amendment to protect ourselves now. https://t.co/EibtZ7wDnM— Gun Owners of America (@GunOwners) October 9, 2023
While Israel removing some of its firearms regulations is undoubtedly a step in the right direction, gun ownership still comes with heavy restrictions and unnecessary bureaucratic red tape.
Israel JUST loosened firearm licensing, but many Israelis still don’t live in an eligible region.— Gun Owners of America (@GunOwners) October 9, 2023
Others simply cannot afford to wait a week for a telephone interview or need more than the allotted 100 rounds of ammo.
A good first step, but Israel needs a Second Amendment ASAP! https://t.co/uPi6HaXy9N
During the hours of the initial invasion, US Senators continued to tweet support for gun control while similar policies were resulting in deaths across the ocean.

Additionally, to those that say "that could never happen here" regarding the United States, be aware that the ATF recently notified FFLs in border states warning firearms dealers about straw purchases of 50 caliber and belt-fed firearms.

ATF is apparently warning firearms dealers about intelligence showing criminal networks plan to buy .50 cal and/or belt fed rifles in the next 2 months via straw purchasers
This is clearly due to our open border

These threats are precisely why Americans have the right to own "weapons of war" for self-defense. Politicians who push gun control should realize that their actions will only empower criminals and terrorists.
This really should be the end of the gun control debate in the United States.— Randy Barnett (@RandyEBarnett) October 8, 2023
