Jewish Gun Leaders Come Out Firing

As a child growing up in the Long Island suburb of Lawrence, N.Y., Richard Feldman, the National Rifle Association’s first Jewish lobbyist, did not encounter many gun owners. He first held a firearm at the age of 12, at a Jewish summer camp shooting range.

It was only a decade later, when serving on the Cambridge, Mass. police force, that Feldman came to the realization that “gun control does not equal crime control.”

Feldman is one of several activists for gun rights who stand out in a Jewish community that vocally supports regulating and limiting those rights.
