Robert J. Avrech – Emmy Winner and Proud Jewish Marksman

Robert Avrech is a screenwriter (Body Double, A Stranger Among Us, The Devil’s Arithmetic) and describes himself on his blog, as follows:

I’m an Emmy Award winning screenwriter. I’m also an observant Jew, a religious Zionist, a conservative Republican, and a member of the NRA. I’ve been writing and producing in Hollywood for over twenty-five years. But the focus of my life is my family: my radiant wife, Karen—with whom I have been in love with since I was nine years-old—and my two daughters, who, thankfully, look like Karen. Not too long ago, we had three children. But our son, Ariel, died at the age of twenty-two from cancer. We miss him terribly. We think about him practically every minute of every day. People tell us that time heals, but Karen and I know this is not true. Time grinds away doing its terrible work. Ariel is gone. Yet absence becomes presence.

He blogs on a variety of topics, most of them unrelated to guns in any way.  But a few excellent postings that every Jew and gun owner should read:

Jew without a Gun
Girls with Guns
Philistine Gun Control and Jews

Definitely a blog worth following!  The first essay “Jew without a Gun” above is an excellent story that explains, in part, what brought him into the fold of gun ownership.
