    Maybe if Mr. Peretz was so concerned about his personal safety, he should have obtained a concealed carry permit, learned how to effectively use the weapon, and taken an active role in order to neutralize the shooter. Oh wait — he’s in SoCal…the Land of Fruits and Nuts who generally hate the 2nd Amendment.

      1. Concealed carry permits can be obtained in So Cal.

      2. Item 1 does not negate the fact that the synagogue received a $150k grant to improve security and did not. This opens them up to exactly this kind of litigation.

        The grant was received in March. Purim was in March, and Passover in April. That was hardly enough time to research and install security measures, considering this is one of the busiest seasons on the Jewish calendar.

        Synagogues usually keep doors unlocked during services as people come and go.

        If he was trying to make a point, point taken. The shooting served that purpose very well.

    If the synagogue received $150,000 to upgrade security, then they should have done something to increase security. Does that mean a guard at the door – don’t know, but there should be something to show the money was spent to secure the building. Having said that – Mr. Peretz, assuming that he attended on a regular basis, should have asked the questions of where the money is spent. All members of a religious organization should ask questions about safety precautions.
