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.
Further commentary on the Sandy Hook School attrocity,
which we have categorized as "letters to the editor".
In some ways, Americans have lost their sense of an "independent mindset" that is signified by the JPFO symbol – a Jewish star of David with an American flag draped within; a seemingly dichotomous idea, given that the "national consciousness" has been coerced into believing that "Jews on the left-or-right coasts" are LIBERAL, whilst Christians somewhere in "middle America" are conservatives.
Just read the comments section of CBS news.com (considered a "liberal" outlet) vs. those left on Foxnews.com (seen as a "conservative" outlet). You'll find people spouting off on BOTH websites about either how guns should be banned and that mental health is the *REAL* problem in the wake of the Connecticut tragedy, whereas on the other site you'll find people fearful about gun rights being taken away.
The same holds true about Detroit, where I'm from. Most people think its "the national ashtray" when in fact there is a renaissance happening here; and, there is also a long-standing history of Jewish and African American integration.
In truth, NO "national painting" of any one place or state is accurate. For instance, look at Colorado or Washington State – both of which have marijuana legalization, and have a high percentage of gun owners as well. Perhaps we Americans like to "have our cake and eat it too." Go figure.
What I would like to see is a nationally televised show like "Meet the Press" or "Face the Nation" – NOT so much "local media" – have this public discussion. Let's face it: when Americans have TIME to get up on Sunday morning (without work obligations) and want to "catch-up" on what's current, THOSE are the sort of media outlets they view – along with their Sunday paper or the national websites.
Yet, "all politics is local" – as is demonstrated by Utah, which allows their teachers to carry concealed pistols inside of their schools, whereas in Michigan, that possibility was vetoed of recently by the governor. What this shows is that these decisions should be left to the STATES – just as our founding fathers wrote in our Constitution.
In the end, the FACT is that a psychotic or an evil minded person will FIND a way to carry out their "mission" – be it a truck packed with fertilizer in Oklahoma City to blow-up a Federal building, or somebody with an axe, firearm, or blunt instrument at their disposal. It is simply a matter of convenience, planning, and the will to do so.
The over-arching argument is that CHOICE is still vital in this nation – to legally own a firearm or to not own one IS our right, and it SHOULD remain that way. To quote Neil Peart who penned the song "Freewill" by the band Rush, "if you choose not to decide, you STILL have made a choice." And those choices should NOT be muted by reactions to a tragedy.
