Since the "New Look" change mid 2011 - we are still thirsty for feedback but sadly get very little. Can we ask for one or two regular visitors to volunteer to regularly report, mentioning any link or display problems, and Email us with info. Some errors can be hard to track down and so outside help is most useful.
"Gun of the week" has been running for some time - let’s hear from you. Like - not like? Any other suggestions?

Note - (July 2011) We notice sometimes that out of the thousands of alerts sent out, there can be rather high numbers of "bounces" - on checking with our provider it would seem that now and again an ISP makes some change to their email settings and that can result in non-delivery to those using that ISP.
If it happens to be something like Hotmail, Yahoo or even gmail - then many can be affected temporarily. For those who miss out on one of our sendings, we apologize, but the provider does try to stay ahead of things when they can by making changes in their own settings to reflect ISP changes and so control the bounces, which we like to see as zero!
If in doubt, please check the alerts archive to make sure you have not missed anything. Also, if you get alerts do please open them!

rebuttals to "Gun Control"
JPFO tries to be an educator by supplying "intellectual ammunition" - the idea being that we provide information for folks to use the best they can, to further the fight against "Gun Control". We are tax exempt and cannot lobby or endorse but, for sure we can give you the fodder you need such that you can do your bit the best way you can. The fight to preserve our 2A is vital.
Researching to find data, writing articles, as well maintaining the site - all takes time and expense and so, help towards keeping this active and vital is essential. We would encourage anyone who finds our efforts worthwhile to become a member, or even donate - it all helps us survive and continue the hard fought battle.
Please dig deep, use the search, explore through our menus - find even old pages and pass them on. Dissemination of material is invaluable.
Glancing at last year's calendar, I see Wisconsin's Concealed Carry Weapons Law went into effect one year ago yesterday. Of course, CCW had a chilling effect on Wisconsin's criminals even before it was signed into law. And - the results of CCW track very well with the initial results of other, similar laws.
Violent crime rates down, from 248.9 to 236.9 and homicides down from 2.7 to 2.4 are good things. Even if some complain about the slightly increased number of self defense cases.
And what can Wisconsin look for in the future? A slow decline in violent crime, and in any violent face to face confrontation. There will certainly be times when an outbreak of organized violence, from flash mobs to gang wars, send the crime rates bouncing up, but the long term trend will be down.
Now, we have our work cut out for us. Illinois is an anti-gun state. So are California, New Jersey and New York. And our Nation's Capital is also anti-gun. There are more, of course. But those are the big targets. Get the crime rates there down, and we will begin to have a handle on crime.
Webmaster's note: We have recently added a feature on the JPFO homepage right column which compares figures for gun-related deaths with those from other sources for the current year, as well as a figure for lives saved by firearms. There are also two articles related to WI carry which can bear reference again, although more concerned with open carry -- there was an open letter written to the Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle, and an article by the late Kirby Ferris about the then Police Chief of Milwaukee - "Wisconsin's top criminal".
