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.

All those who believe that "gun control" measures won’t touch them please raise their hands. Those who raised their hands should, please, leave the room. That which I have to say does not apply to you, and I don’t want to waste your time.
Those of you still here know that the NRA’s strategy - of compromise - is failing, fast, or at the very best is not working as intended. Rather than appeasing the "gun grabbers", offers of compromise on more "gun control" whets their appetite for more "gun control" measures.
Some of you have figured out that the strategy based on compromise is FATALLY flawed. Some of you may even have figured out that unless the NRA changes its strategy, the law abiding firearm owner in America will go the way of the Jews in Nazi occupied Europe: extermination.
This strategy will continue to fail because it is based on one wrong assumption. Bad assumptions are the Mother of all screw-ups. The FATALLY bad assumption is that some forms of "gun control" - e.g., the "instant check" are, or can be, a socially useful policy, or at least not socially harmful. This is wrong. Dead wrong.
"Gun control" is an extremely destructive policy. It helped clear the way for Nazi ascendancy in Germany. As a result, 13,000,000 people were murdered; 2700/day, each day that the Nazis were in power (30 January 1933 - 7 May 1945). In the 12 member countries of the European Union, it would take about 400 years for that number of people to be murdered, assuming that Europeans were as inclined to commit murder as are a tiny minority of Americans, and if they did nothing to restrain the murders.
For the NRA to mobilize the bulk of the population, it must as a matter of great possible urgency - abandon the policy of compromise on "gun control". The NRA must be bold and aggressive. It is not enough to focus on leading "gun grabbers". It is essential to attack the concept of "gun control", to show that this is a blood drenched concept, that has no place in any civilized country.
The NRA must turn its back on its 60 years of trying to reach a compromise with the "gun grabbers". To that end, the NRA should:
To those of you who are inclined to think, "It can’t happen here", I would point out that just over 50 years ago, America took all but the final step of a genocide. On 19 February 1942, President Roosevelt signed Executive order 9066. Under this order - later backed by the U.S. Congress - a small minority, Japanese-Americans - was sent to concentration camps, and held behind barbed wire fences by machine gun toting guards. Few of these people had done anything wrong. Yet all were deprived of homes, businesses, and most of their personal possessions. The U.S. Supreme Court approved (Korematsu v. U.S., 1944).
Unless and until the NRA attacks the concept of "gun control", and shows that "gun control" is a very evil public policy, "gun control" will prosper. And the NRA, and its members will, slowly, be erased.
You have a choice. You can behave the same way as Jews in Nazi Germany and Nazi occupied Europe. Like the Leaders of Jewish Community Councils (Judenrat), you can sacrifice some members of the community - the elderly, the chronically sick, etc. - to try to save others. You will be asked for more concessions; children below the age of ten. A slice at-a-time, the "gun- grabbers" will ask you for more.
By not putting before your members, and the American people, the Nazi roots of "gun control" in America, you have contributed to the enactment of the Brady Bill, and most recently, the ban on "military type" firearms.
When will you rise and fight? Will you wait until "sporting firearms" larger than .22 are banned? Will you wait until black powder firearms are banned? Will you wait until shooting ranges are zoned out of existence?
The choice is yours; You can turn your back on a failed strategy - one of compromise with evil-doers - and attack the concept of "gun control" by exposing the Nazi roots of "gun- control" in America. Or, you can persist in a failed strategy, and accept your own extinction.
"Gun Control" cleared the way for 8 (eight) major genocides in the 20th Century
over 56 million murdered in the name of "Gun Control."
