Gun law in the shires (UK)
Images of paramilitary-style policemen with assault
rifles in Luton are a shocking confirmation that law
and order has collapsed in parts of the country

In an age of terrorism, we have become used to seeing armed police at major railway stations and airports, or guarding other potential targets such as embassies. But when officers with guns are needed to patrol the streets of an English town because of an upsurge in gang shootings, it seems we have reached something of a watershed in our national life.
The images of paramilitary-style policemen with assault rifles escorting parents and children to school in Luton are a shocking confirmation that law and order has collapsed in parts of our country. In the past four months, there have been nine gun-related incidents on two estates in the Bedfordshire town. Last weekend, a 16-year-old boy was shot in the back and may be paralysed.
Many residents say they are too frightened to venture out of their homes and that they find the presence of the armed officers "reassuring", despite their forbidding appearance. But how much more reassured might they have been had these crime-ridden estates not fallen under the sway of the gangs in the first place? The police did put extra patrols and resources into the notorious Marsh Farm estate after rioting in the mid-Nineties and they are now out in force again, intending to "get a grip" on the gang problem. But clearly, after nine shootings, they lost control some time ago.
Policing these areas is difficult and officers have arrested around a dozen people in connection with drugs and firearms offences. But people in Luton, and others afflicted by such violence, are entitled to ask how armed gangs have been allowed to flourish with apparent impunity for so long. Once the perpetrators of these shootings have been tracked down, the police must ensure that the law-abiding people who live on estates such as these are not abandoned again.

Thought for the day -- "Isn't it strange that after a bombing, everyone blames the bomber ... but after a shooting, the problem is the Gun ! "

The Gang Movie
This deep digging documentary movie was released in 2007 and runs 85 minutes. It contains material that many would find hard to believe, as it exposes the abuses and inconsistencies of the out-of-control agency BATFE.
Purchase a copy from the JPFO store, learn the facts, and then pass that information on to those who might have any doubts. Current events concerning the "Fast and Furious" debacle, sometimes known as "Gun Walker" just amplify the degree of corruption that exists, and has existed for so long. Go visit the Gang Movie Site and learn more. You can also see a short trailer here on JPFO.

The JPFO Homepage Footnotes
Since the loss of our Founder, Aaron Zelman, back in December of 2010, the JPFO current team has vowed to not only continue his mission but, best we can, expand on it and aggressively maintain the thrust of JPFO’s objectives. We produced a new-look site layout which is an attempt to make for more page space, more interest, and helpful navigation. Your support is essential and appreciated - please join or donate to help the efforts.
What many new visitors may not realize is that over 11 years and more, the site has accumulated a wealth of information and so, apart from using the links in our navigation menus, it is well worth researching through our search option in the upper right of the header, although older pages may often come up. JPFO tries to educate and provide "intellectual ammunition" to help people be better informed and so better able to fight the fight themselves. It is through representation by the individual that progress can be made in protecting our fundamental rights.
The sad fact is, that the anti gun movements feel that a ban across the board is essential, and yet we all know through simple logic that banning of guns, and so depriving law-abiding folks of their innate right of self defense, is a recipe for not only a destruction of the Second Amendment but also a refusal to acknowledge that all the criminals will as always, remain armed and dangerous. The battle is hard but has to be sustained and Genocide could be right round the corner.
Reflections on JPFO history and the future.
