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.
Gun-grabbers -- the victim disarmers -- are like a flock of vultures, perched on a Saguaro cactus, waiting for something to die.
This time it's the Arizona shootings, committed with a Glock semiautomatic pistol and an extended 33-round magazine. The vultures can't go after the pistol. Sixty percent of American cops carry Glocks, and the company is well known for resisting the shakedown tactics of the anti-gun establishment. Instead, they've decided to go after high capacity magazines, as if the assassin would have desisted if they were unavailable. The mainstream airwaves and paper media have overflowed with anti-self defense bluster and threats. And it’s all based on lies and emotionalized irrationality.
What to do? You can always boycott the network sponsors. The problem is that, for a boycott to be effective, you need to persuade thousands -- or millions -- of others to go along, which is a lot of work, and usually not very successful.
Then one day I asked myself the right question: if a boycott won't work, then what's the opposite of a boycott? Obviously it isn't doing more business with your enemy.
How about doing more business with whatever your enemy opposes?
Call it a “reverse boycott”.
Now, whenever I find myself subjected to victim disarmament drivel disguised as "news" or "entertainment", I drop a quarter (or a dime, nickel, or penny) into a coffee can I keep beside my TV watching chair. Given the rate at which propaganda fills the air, it's no time at all before the can fills up.
When enough change accumulates, I don't give it to the NRA or any other group whose policies I neither control nor necessarily approve. I spend it the best way I know, in the free marketplace, acquiring something I wouldn't otherwise have bought.
In this immediate instance, and as part of JPFO’s “High Cap Freedom” campaign, my coffee can coins will be directed towards the purchase of another high capacity magazine for one of my semiautomatic rifles or pistols. Think about it: a high capacity magazine you wouldn't otherwise have bought -- and the propagandists have only themselves to blame.
Appeal to the self-interest of enough gun owners, and hundreds of thousands -- maybe even millions -- of unforeseen “high cap” magazine purchases will occur. This will strengthen the gun industry relative to the rest of the economy, perhaps even put some spine back into those who've taken the historically discredited route of appeasing the oppressor.
Appeasement didn't work with Hitler; why did anybody ever think it'd work with Hitler's spiritual kin, Charles Schumer, Carolyn McCarthy or Dianne Feinstein?
Some estimate that, since Obama's nomination, around thirty million new gun purchases have been made. That's 30,000,000 new weapons in the possession of American citizens. Now that is one heck of a “reverse boycott”!
Victim-disarmers have tried hard to keep the public ignorant of this inconvenient statistic. But as word of millions of coffee cans filling up with coins -- and suddenly being emptied for high cap magazine purchases – this new tactic, if publicized, will take on a life of its own.
The best part is that nobody is in a position to think, speak, or act for you. It's your TV, your chair, your coffee can. In your home you're the judge of what constitutes anti-gun propaganda. You decide how much to drop in the can. You decide how to spend it. You're the ultimate beneficiary.
Me, I'm buying Glock high cap magazines. Yes, that’s plural.
It won't work unless we tell the media what we're doing. So let local TV stations -- and the networks -- know about your coffee can. Talk it up on FaceBook, Twitter, every other social medium you can.
So get involved now with JPFO’s “High Cap Freedom” campaign. Use the “Coffee Can Revolution”.
