“Wanna see a mass shooting with a body count of over 30 subhumans?” Ross Farca wrote, referring to Jews. He must not be armed!
Pressure is mounting from within the U.S. Jewish community, led by the National Council of Young Israel (NCYI), to prevent a California court from returning weapons to a man who threatened to massacre Jews.
“California resident Ross Farca posted online about how he has an assault rifle and wants to use it for a mass shooting of Jews and police officers,” says the NCYI, citing a statement from law enforcement officials.
Farca was arrested, says NCYI, but released on bail just days later.
An emergency order that kept guns away from Farca since his June 10 arrest expired on July 1 but has been extended by a judge to July 15, “when another hearing is scheduled,” reports The Jewish News of Northern California.
“Police reportedly found Nazi paraphernalia when Farca was arrested, as well as camouflage clothing and a sword,” according to NCYI.
Farca was arrested “following a tip to the FBI about his online threats to commit a mass shooting and his boasts that he possessed an assault rifle, according to a court filing,” says The Jewish News of Northern California. He threatened to “exceed the number of Poway victims in an attack,” the Jewish news outlet reports.
“Wanna see a mass shooting with a body count of over 30-subhumans?” Farca wrote, according to the newspaper. He uses the name “Adolf Hitler (((6 million)))” on an online gaming site, says NCYI.
“It would be incomprehensible and irresponsible to allow a person who lionizes Adolf Hitler and seeks to massacre Jews to be in possession of any sort of weaponry,” said NCYI President Farley Weiss. “After Pittsburgh and Poway, where Jews were murdered in houses of worship solely because of their religious beliefs, we need to be more vigilant than ever,” he argued.
“Jewish Vocational Service, based in downtown San Francisco, circulated a precautionary email with Farca’s mugshot, warning recipients to contact police if they saw him,” said The Jewish News of Northern California, adding that “one East Bay synagogue hired a professional guard for Shabbat services on June 21 and requested an increased police presence, according to a community-wide email.”
“Putting guns back in the hands of an individual such as Ross Farca, who openly and proudly wrote about his desire to kill Jews, would facilitate his evil tendencies and could result in a tragedy of immense proportions,” warned the NCYI president.
“We urge the court to do the right thing and take steps to ensure that Mr. Farca is permanently enjoined from legally possessing guns of any kind,” he stated.
Tell the court not to put weapons in the hands of a person who would use to them to massacre Jews!
