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.
To the Editor:
I read with curiosity Mr. Silow-Carroll’s “Guns and Moses” editorial (NJJN, June 20, 2012) and would like to respond to three items therein:
1) Mr. Silow-Carroll infers that our discussion of “JINOs” is a blanket statement excising all non-Orthodox Jews from the Jewish people; nothing could be further from either our intent or statements. In fact, that section of the paper, entitled “Adulterated religion -- Jews in Name Only”, begins with the statement that:
Arizona-based historian Michael E. Newton, author of The Path to Tyranny (Elephtheria Publishing, 2010), posits that part of the problem rests with Jews who no longer believe in Judaism, and have replaced their previous religion with a popular new one: so-called “social justice.”
In addition, I note that my co-author Alan Korwin is not an Orthodox Jew, and I know he does not believe that his lack of observance makes him non-Jewish as Mr. Silow-Carroll implies.
2) Mr. Silow-Carroll states that I “give shooting lessons to fellow Orthodox Jews.” While that is technically true, it is a far more narrow statement than the reality: as an NRA-certified instructor, I give instruction to anyone not disqualified to own firearms under NJ law. It is true that most of those I have introduced to shooting are Orthodox Jews, but that simply reflects the reality that Orthodox Jews suffer less from the hoplophobia that plagues the more liberal segments of the Jewish world.
3) Mr. Silow-Carroll states that he doesn’t “get’ guns or why anyone who isn’t a hunter or a jeweler would want to own one,” which he makes clears in the editorial. To help correct his knowledge shortfall, I have offered to spend an afternoon with Mr. Silow-Carroll so that he can learn about the various issues involved in gun ownership for Jews -- the applicable secular laws and freedoms at stake; the halacha of self-defense; the practical safety issues; and the challenges of the shooting sports.
