Honenu Against Confiscation of Weapons from Israelis


The Honenu legal aid organization announced on Sunday that it is launching a new campaign against the confiscation of weapons from Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria.

"This is not a weakness, but rather a crime which leads to the abandonment of human life," said the organization, adding, “Unlike many Western countries, in Israel a permit to carry a weapon is not a luxury. Anyone who receives a permit to bear arms lives in an area in which he needs the weapon in order to save lives. Unfortunately, over the years, it turns out that the authorities do not ascribe weight to his fact, and the ease with which they take weapons from a person who needs them is intolerable. "
