Jews and guns: A day on the firing range

Posted: 12.05.12 04:00 PM

Susanne Reyto carefully loaded her rifle and switched the safety off. Peering into the scope attached to the top of the weapon, she pulled the trigger while former U.S. Army platoon leader Charlie Jasper looked on to ensure she was handling her weapon safely.To their right, 29 year old Sean Constine loaded bullets into his rifle's magazine. Then he picked up the rifle and, having located his target -- a steel plate attached to the top of a pole approximately 50 yards away -- fired away.Meanwhile, Jonathan Stern, a former member of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), corrected the shooting stance of a 20 something who'd never fired a weapon before.They were among 25 individuals who visited the gun range at the Oak Tree Gun Club in Santa Clarita on Dec. 2 to fire rifles and handguns. Organizers of the daylong event said its purpose was to show that learning how to fire a gun can be a powerful experience that Jews, in particular, can benefit from.
