Time to Relax?!
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.
The gun control fanatics in Congress are at it again, capitalizing on the public’s media- and government-induced fear of terrorism and contrived anecdotes to promote their watch list and gun control/gun-grabbing measures for all Americans.
In early May there was a hearing in the Senate Committee on Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs that gave perennial gun-grabber Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.), Rep. Peter King (R- N.Y.) and a few cronies a platform for the subject "Terrorists and Guns: The Nature of the Threat and Proposed Reforms." That subject is tied into Lautenberg’s S. 2820 PROTECT Act of 2009 (Preserving Records of Terrorist & Criminal Transactions Act) and S. 1317 Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act, and Rep. Peter King’s matching version in the House, H.R. 2159.
Billed as an "anti-terrorist" measure by the authors, the details of S. 1317 and its companion bill H.R. 2159 would allow the Attorney General of the United States to deny the purchase of a firearm to anyone on the "terrorist watch list." The AG could accomplish this without due process of law and without the accused knowing any details of possible suspicion. The responsibility of determining a person’s guilt or innocence would be outside the judicial system and in the hands of the Attorney General (currently Eric Holder, not personally in favor of gun rights), and who would not have to produce one shred of evidence for his decision, a huge loss of civil rights for American citizens.
S. 2820 would establish a national gun registry. This bill would require record-keeping of gun transfers for ten years for anyone who is suspected of being a member of a terrorist organization, and 180 days for all other criminal background checks relating to firearms transfers. It also repeals "certain provisions that require the destruction within 24 hours of identifying information for individuals who legally purchase or possess firearms."
With the growing labeling of "homegrown terrorists" extending to concerned citizens who seek a return to constitutional doctrine, the government would have free rein in determining individual gun ownership for those who indeed are not terrorists, all in direct contradiction to a protected God-given right.
Every American citizen, active patriot or not, should be motivated by such disingenuous rhetoric to oppose all this legislation vigorously and persistently. Contact your representative and senators about all three pieces of proposed legislation, S. 1317, H.R. 2159, and S. 2820, and let them know you adamantly oppose any and all attempts to restrict gun ownership through various unconstitutional strategies.
