EDUCATION BEATS LOBBYING
By educating a Massachusetts law-maker that the downside to "gun control" is genocide, JPFO derailed - at the eleventh hour - a ban on many military-type firearms. Other "pro-gun" groups had tried best, and failed.
By educating Massachusetts State Representative William J. Glodis, Jr., JPFO Massachusetts Field Representative Bruce Chesley caused him to think again about "gun control" as a public policy. Glodis had previously voted for the ban.
At end-July, Chesley educated staff members of a Massachusetts Legislature Conference Committee which had to reconcile versions of a law banning many military-type firearms. Bruce told the staffers that the proposed law used concepts found in the Nazi Weapons Law of 18 March 1938, and that "gun control" laws "made genocide possible."
On I August 1996, the Worcester Telegraph and Gazette (Worcester, MA), quoted Rep. Glodis as having said that, "It reminds me of Germany in the 1930s...when Hitler did not allow the Jews to have guns. If we outlaw these guns, we could be setting up future generations for something similar." (Page A8)
On 5 August 1996, Rep. Glodis wrote to Bruce stating:
"I want you to know that the conversation you had with my Chief of Staff, Vicki Saulnier, struck a chord in me. At first, I was astonished such an organization existed: 'Jews for the Preservation of Ownership' (sic). However, when Vicki related your comments and historical perspective to me, it jogged my memory of those events of many years ago."
This proves, beyond shadow of doubt, that:
- education - clearly presenting hard facts - beats lobbying (making empty threats, or seeking more of the compromises that over 60 years have shredded our civil right to be armed)
- using JPFO's hard facts to destroy "gun control" (by showing that "gun control" promotes genocide), beats "show-and-tell" sessions for law-makers (to highlight similarities between "good" and "bad" guns)
- other pro-firearms groups (such as Gun Owners Action League of Massachusetts (G.O.A.L.) need to be quicker to use JPFO's ideas to destroy "gun control", instead of "fighting" against gun prohibitionists year-after-year-after-year.
IF YOU REALLY WANT TO KEEP YOUR GUNS, THEN YOU NEED TO ARM YOURSELF WITH JPFO'S IDEAS, INTELLECTUAL AMMUNITION.
YOU CAN THEN EDUCATE THOSE WHO, IN IGNORANCE, FEEL "GUN CONTROL" IS DESIRABLE.
IF WE WORK TOGETHER, WE CAN DESTROY "GUN CONTROL", INSTEAD OF JUST "FIGHTING IT".
Pro-firearms groups in the Northeast who want Bruce Chesley's guidance should contact JPFO at once.
YOU NEED TO READ THESE JPFO BOOKS TO EDUCATE YOURSELF, SO YOU CAN THEN EDUCATE OTHERS:
DEATH BY "GUN CONTROL", which destroys every argument for "gun control"
"GUN CONTROL": Gateway to Tyranny, which presents hard evidence that the U.S. Gun Control Act of 1968 likely was based on the Nazi Weapons Law (18 March 1938)
