THIS is Why I Own and Carry Weapons Reiterating the title of this post: THIS is why I own and carry weapons wherever I can. I'll be 51 years old in a few days. I'm too old and fat to do a strip-tease for some death camp guard in order to snatch his / her / xis / xer / zis / zer sidearm away. Hertfordshire Friends of Israel Sunday, September 22, 2019 at 4:00 AM Arriving at Auschwitz in 1943, Polish-Jewish ballet dancer Franceska Mann was ordered to disrobe for the crematorium. She took off her clothes provocatively to distract the Nazi guard, then snatched the roll-call officer's pistol & shot him dead. She fired a second shot that wounded an SS sergeant. Other prisoners began a riot that was broken up when the guards opened fire with machine guns. Mann died on the spot. But she stood up to evil and went down with a fight!
