A personal message from
Aaron Zelman
Executive Director
Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership

People often ask me why Jews rarely vote for Republican candidates.

In the past, the reasons might have seemed obvious. Most Jews favor extensive government involvement in everyday life; the Democrats fulfilled that promise. Today, with the Bush administration increasing both the overall size of government and social-spending programs at a far faster rate than Bill Clinton did, Jews' aversion to the GOP is more of a mystery.

Following many conversations with left-of-center Jews after Temple services, I've come to a conclusion. There is one reason above all that 3 in 4 of my fellow religionists continue to mark their ballot for the "D" rather than the "R."

Republicans lack one vital trait that both Jews and gun owners demand from their representatives. To learn what
that crucial missing trait is, please read my article, "Jews, Republicans, and Guns: What Is the Problem?" . The article expresses my personal opinion, not the official position of JPFO or its membership. Nevertheless, it arises from experience.

We've also put up a political cartoon on our site, which you can find here. The cartoon is free to download, print, and distribute as long as you keep the copyright information on it.

I hope you'll find both the cartoon and the article useful and will share them freely with other gun owners.
