Gun Control and Orthodox Woman Rabbis: Both Slippery Slopes

Gun control is one of the few debates that are not even worth having, chances are that you’ve made up your mind based on your own little file full of statistics, studies, and facts to support whatever side you’re on. It’s actually one of the few debates where people come armed (no pun intended) with statistics, I guess you can’t really argue about how gay marriage is degrading the countries morality level from a statistical point of view.

Gun control debates are a lot like Judaism in many ways. The biggest reason that Gun Control is such a big deal, is because the folks who are against it see it as a slippery slope towards a full sweeping ban of firearms which are clearly mentioned in our constitutional rights, this is kind of like the debate over whether or not orthodoxy is open to having women as clergy or having the right to do their extra not exactly commanded mitzvos at the western wall. Some will say that this is a changing of the times and that women aren’t like they used to be, but then that’s kind of going against the Torah. Gun control is the same thing in many ways, once you start restricting firearms, the thought is that criminals will have them and law abiding citizens won’t.
