'Chill-Out' Corner



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.

Alerts & "Bounces"
Points to note with the JPFO alert emails.

Alerts can sometimes bounce!

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!

Chris, Webmaster.

Why Join JPFO?

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.

BATFE and its Gun Registration



JPFO has battled long and hard against BATFE abuses and much of the fight can be found within our page "Boot The Batfe", also a site search on "ATF" and/or "BATFE" can bring up a wealth of accumulated data. There are also many sound file interviews on Talkin' to America which also deal with such material.

JPFO has however recently been bringing to people's attention the 'back door' methods of registration effected through the use of eTrace and CARS. This page seeks to index that material following alerts sent out Oct 23, Oct 26 and Oct 27 2009, in order to centralize it somewhat, for easier reference. Extra additions added since those dates, including allied material.

(Some of this is in part associated with UN Small Arms control)


4/2/10 — From - "United States, Belgium Sign eTrace Agreement". "The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) that will provide eTrace, an electronic firearms tracing system, to Belgium to strengthen its efforts to combat firearms trafficking" ........

4/1/10 —  "We remain increasingly concerned that ongoing efforts to restrict or ban the civilian and private ownership of firearms taking place at the United Nations will severely restrict and frustrate the lawful international commerce in sporting firearms and ammunition products and undermine the United States' national sovereignty and America's cherished firearms freedoms protected by the Second Amendment and our hunting and shooting sports heritage,"  Read this archived article, including the PDF that is linked to within.

12/29/09 — An allied item, which was obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, comprising an August 2009 set of recommendations from your favorite interfering "Mayors Against Illegal Guns", Bloomberg of course ever prominent. Read this and remind yourself what we continue to be up against.

From the October 23rd 2009 alert we pointed you to an open letter written to Kenneth Melson of BATFE (acting director), pointing out the The Firearms Owners' Protection Act, signed into law in 1986, specifically forbids registration of firearms records at 18 U.S.C. 926(a).

From the October 26th 2009 alert we referred to a Hilary Clinton State Department item on eTrace, archived here on JPFO. Over thirty foreign governments and thousands of police agencies can access the BATFE registration records to find firearms owned by Americans under the guise of tracing "crime guns".

From the October 27th 2009 alert we reproduced an article sent us by email from a retired Police Commander. He goes into further depth about the extent and ramifications of this system.

To add to this we received an excellent article on October 29th 2009, which follows on from and expands on the content of the open letter to Kenneth Melson.  It is detailed and well researched, covering most aspects of the way BATFE is and has been documenting and recording your gun data.

A further addition (11/4/09) is this article originating from the Democratic Party of New Jersey, from August 2007 - adding further credence that gun registration is indeed well entrenched.

11/13/09 alert – A JPFO supporter who opposes national registration of American's firearms has created a letter for concerned gun owners to send to politicians who claim to be Second Amendment supporters.

11/16/09 – We received some comments following the above alert of Nov 13th - two of these can be found on this page.  One is forthright and pulls no punches - the other is a modified version of the letter referred to above.

11/23/09 – Information received concerning ATF Ruling 2008-2 and its significance.
