Do Everything to Encourage Dr. Laura's Shooting Lessons!

Dear JPFO supporters,

Dr. Laura Schlessinger, the #2 national talk show host, told the world on January 12, 2000 about her first shooting lesson. Her 10 minute discussion might have done more for the gun liberty movement than we can imagine.

She described how she was trained on all the rules of safe use, how she was shocked by the noise of the guns, and how she tried both the revolver and the semi-automatic pistol. She liked the semi-automatic better, because it was more comfortable in her hand and the recoil was less stressful. She said she enjoyed the experience, starting getting used to the noise, and would be taking more lessons. All of this from a person who had never supported gun ownership before last year and who apparently had never touched a gun or heard one fired before.

We need to welcome her into the ranks of responsible gun owners -- people from all walks of life in America. We need to thank her for demystifying handguns and shooting. We need to encourage her to continue her lessons and her practice.

If you value firearms ownership at all, please send Dr. Laura a fax at (818) 461-5140 -- it must be no longer than one page, preferably even shorter -- and be as nice and friendly and welcoming as you can.

Include a little bit of information about yourself, so that she will see that gun owners are not all "nuts," but are regular people.

If you want to mail the letter, her address is:

Dr. Laura Schlessinger

Sherman Oaks, CA 91403

Here's an example you could use for a model:

==== Sample Fax Message ====

Dear Dr. Laura,

Thank you for sharing on the radio your first shooting experience on January 12. I'm glad you are getting such great training, and that you have been able to test different kinds of handguns to find one that works best for you. Practice is fun, and I hope you find time to continue building your skills.

You'll probably find, as I have, that people from all walks of life own and use firearms. I, for example, am a homemaker, and I have a handgun for self-defense. I also enjoy target shooting. On your show you said you preferred the semi-automatic pistol, and so do I.

Welcome to the ranks of Americans who understand their right to keep and bear arms, and who own and know how to use a firearm safely.

By the way, if you're interested, you could contact Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, which is a "support group" especially for Jews interested in gun issues. I support JPFO; you can reach Aaron Zelman, Executive Director of JPFO, at (800) 869-1884.

Keep up the great work!

Very truly yours,
