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?
Thank you - JPFO Webmaster.

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.
July 4th 2013
Rabbi Avigdor Miller was one of the great leaders of the Jewish People in the prior generation, and one of the great Jewish thinkers of all time. Here is what he had to say when asked if a Jew should fly the flag to celebrate the 4th of July:
"America is a good country. We (Jews) came from countries where we were persecuted, and this country gave us all the rights. We should kiss the ground of America.
I was in Europe for some time; I went to study in Yeshiva. I came back, and I saw this was a blessed country; it's a gift from Hashem to us. Shouldn't we appreciate it? Therefore I say a Jew should hang out the flag."
We at JPFO emplore you: fly your flag with pride!

An open letter from ISRA 2nd Vice President Mike Weisman to fellow
Jewish gun owners ( addressing a planned event in Skokie, IL 7/1/13):
Dear fellow gun owners,
I direct this message at my fellow Jewish gun owners, but send it in the open for other gun owners and others to see, and in plain English so that no one misunderstands the message.
As a child receiving a religious education, we learned about the Holocaust, and were taught that we say "Never Again!"
Later, I learned about other persecutions of Jews and of mass killings of other peoples in the world, many of which occurred in the last century.
Even later, as a gun owner, I became aware of hypocrisy among our people, vast numbers of American Jews and Jewish organizations in America were supporting efforts to ban handguns and semi-automatic rifles. No, the Jews are not alone in religious support of gun control in America, but it would seem that we have a lot to lose should history repeat itself. And repeat itself. One would think that we had turned the cry of "Never Again!" into "Never Again, and again, and again..." Just the last 40 years had how many other sweeping murders of unarmed civilian populations?
As an American, and as an American Jew, I understand that being armed is being prudent. I see American Jews and other Americans who don't want to be armed, and understand that's their right, I can't force that sense of duty upon them. But I can't shrug off when my fellow Jews would disarm me. "No one needs a gun, it can't happen here." They falsely equate taking responsibility for our own safety and being vigilant with taking the law into our own hands, with being vigilantes.
Now the Village of Skokie is entertaining a ban on semi-automatic rifles in the village, based on an emotional directive from our Lt. Governor. Skokie has a large Jewish population, both liberals who would see a gun ban as a wonderful thing, and those who still remember our past.
Refer to the "Sandy Hook Index" for an archive collection of valuable material we have shown since the events at the Newtown Elementary School.
Check out Gun/Murder Statistics: A set of tabulated and graphical data showing relationships between gun numbers and murders - categorized by alphabetical countries listing. Useful research material.
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 ! "
