The United Nations doesn’t like anyone, except its own bodyguards, carrying guns.
Volker Türk, an Austrian UN official, is particularly incensed at recent Israeli steps that will make it easier for civilians to be able to carry firearms in order to deter Islamic terrorists.
“We know from experience that the proliferation of firearms will lead to increased risks of killings and injuries of both Israelis and Palestinians,” Türk claimed.
There’s no shortage of weapons in the hands of terrorists. Many of those weapons were provided or funded by the international community in the name of peace.
Israeli civilians use firearms to defend themselves.
But Türk wouldn’t be the first Austrian to object to Jews carrying guns. Or living.
