Jews have been assaulted, accosted, and oppressed by nearly every nation and empire in history, including the ancient Greeks, Romans, Persians, Byzantines, Ottomans and of course modern nations like Germany and the USSR.
With a history like this, you would think that Jewish people would be pro self-defense and pro firearms. While many are very pro firearms there are also many who are very much against firearms. This paper Why Jews Hate Guns helps explain many of the issues related to firearms rights.
