Another “think tank,” this one called the Institute for
Social Policy and Understanding (ISPU), has come out for total civilian
disarmament and repeal of the Second Amendment.
What’s new about that? ISPU is openly pro-Muslim, and the ISPU
writer is a criminal defense attorney who argues for repealing parts
of the Bill of Rights.
You can read the whole article, entitled “In the Fight Against
Terrorism, Some Rights Must Be Repealed,” by Junaid Afeef, on
the ISPU website:
A JPFO supporter sent us the link, and we did read the article, looking
a. Inaccurate “facts”
b. Missing data and support for factual claims
c. Tricks in shifting the context or changing the subject
d. Statements of opinion presented as though they were unquestionable
e. Insults, innuendoes and smears
f. Key facts or considerations that are totally ignored
g. Logic errors
We found many errors, fallacies, propaganda tricks, and an outright
lie or two. When you read the piece, see how many you can find.
Or – you can go directly to our analysis and response to the
article, entitled “A Muslim Writer Tells America: Drop Your
Guns and Give Up" at www.jpfo.org/dropguns.pdf
We take the ISPU article apart, paragraph by paragraph. Some of the
points may be familiar to you, but there are a few new twists.
Do we expect to convince ISPU or Mr. Afeef of the errors of their
position? Not really. We are publishing a response so that gun owners
and rights supporters can keep their intellectual guns polished and
The enemies of the Bill of Rights come in all flavors. We can never
rest, thinking that we have answered all of their challenges.
Let us know what you think after reading our response.
