Quote Smithers599 " I grieve for all the people who were murdered, but I am angry as hell at the "security expert" who told them the best way to protect themselves was to "call 911 and let The Authorities handle it."

I'm with you on that as well, Stupid!!!

Well, some of them are coming to their senses:

Hundreds of Jewish people in America have rushed to undertake training to learn how to shoot, after an attack on a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA on October 27 that killed 11 people. A private company offering "Israeli tactical shooting techniques" has been inundated with hundreds of requests in the days following the shooting.

A couple of nights ago, I watched “Finding Your Roots” on PBS. The guest subject was Normal Lear, age 93, and still spry.
The researchers had tracked his ancestors back to a Jewish village in Russia. Along came the pogroms, in which the Russian government killed and terrorized Jews. Many Jews left Russia (which was the desired result) and came to America, which is how Norman Lear’s ancestors came to this country.

Astonishingly, the researchers discovered correspondence which had survived all these years. The villagers had pooled all their money, and offered to pay (essentially, bribe) the local police chief to protect them from the Russian soldiers. The chief of police told them that he could not protect them, but that they should take their money and buy arms, so they could protect themselves. The subject was dropped on the show, but I wonder if Norman Lear, a lifelong, generous donor to liberal political causes (including gun control) had a moment of insight. Like, perhaps “Wait a minute! Maybe the purpose of the Second Amendment is not to enable deer hunters. Maybe the reason for the People to keep and bear arms is to prevent pogroms – to enable the People to shoot soldiers who were sent to kill them or take them to concentration camps.” Or maybe it went right over his head.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pogrom#Russian_Empire
The first, in the 20th century Russia, was the Kishinev pogrom of 1903 in which 47 Jews were killed, hundreds wounded, 700 homes destroyed and 600 businesses pillaged.[30] In the same year, pogroms took place in Gomel (Belarus), Smela, Feodosiya and Melitopol (Ukraine). Extreme savagery was demonstrated with mutilations of the wounded.[31] They were followed by the Zhitomir pogrom (with 29 killed),[32] and the Kiev pogrom of October 1905 resulting in a massacre of approximately 100 Jews.[33] In three years between 1903 and 1906, about 660 pogroms were recorded in Ukraine and in Bessarabia; half a dozen more in Belorussia, carried out with the Russian government's complicity. There were no anti-Jewish pogroms recorded in Poland.[31] At about that time, the Jewish Labour Bund began organizing armed self-defence units ready to shoot, and the pogroms subsided for a number of years.[33] According to professor Colin Tatz, between 1881 and 1920, there were 1,326 pogroms in Ukraine (see: Southwestern Krai parts of the Pale) which took the lives of 70,000 to 250,000 civilian Jews, leaving half a million homeless.[34][35]
No schumer? There were no battles; the pogroms just “subsided” when the soldiers heard there was a chance they might get their asses shot if they tried to burn that village? Go figure.
