Guns as Kli Gever

undefined

Rabbi Yirmiyohu Kaganoff

Elul 11, 5768
Question
Is a gun considered "Kli Gever" in even a situation of danger? Especially these days where guns aren’t exactly considered the fashion accessory of choice for men.
Answer
Rav Moshe Feinstein has a Teshuvah in which he rules that a rifle and other military used weapon are considered to be a Kli Gever, but a pistol and other personal defense weapon are not.
