I assumed that at the Synagogue I go to (in Europe) some men are armed, and at least one trained in martial arts. We are all sitting ducks in full regalia if nobody is there to protect us. On High Holy Days there is a strong security presence outside the Shul, of both police and memebers of the Community, and security is tight. But there have to be people inside who can also fight with something more immediately potent that a Siddur.
