The Frisco Kid

By Jessica Zimmerman

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, November 2009

Having grown up and lived in liberal enclaves in California and New York, the author's acquaintances in these Jewish communities wouldn't fathom owning a gun. When she moved to Arizona, she was quite surprised to find that many people there, including in the Jewish community, choose to exercise their right to carry a licensed gun. She muses on this cultural difference and its implications.
