Annapolis, MD - 2 Lawmakers Target of Anti-Semitic Flier for Their Gun Bill
Annapolis, MD - Two Maryland lawmakers are the target of a flier that calls them “bagel brain Jews” for supporting tougher firearms legislation.
The flier depicts Sen. Brian E. Frosh and Del. Samuel I. Rosenberg. They are the Maryland Senate and House sponsors of a bill to tighten firearm ownership and sales requirements. The flier’s headline says: “Bagel Brain Jews Want Your Bullets and Your Guns.”
A group called Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership produced the flier. The group’s executive director, Aaron Zelman of Wisconsin, says his group put it on the Internet but denied mailing it to Frosh and others. He says his group will attack officials who support gun control legislation but especially Jewish politicians who he said should “wake up” and “learn from history.”
