Proposed Federal Law Relies On JPFO Argument!

Congressman Joe Wilson, R-S.C., has introduced a bill (H.R. 648) designed to bolster the legal standing of citizens who obtain firearms for defensive purposes. Geoff Metcalf, columnist and talk host in San Francisco, describes the law in his piece on (link below).

But guess what? According to Mr. Metcalf's article, the bill includes a section of "Findings" -- and that section includes this language:

"(1) Police cannot protect, and are not legally liable for failing to protect, individual citizens, as evidenced by the following: (A) The courts have consistently ruled that the police do not have an obligation to protect individuals, only the public in general. ..."


For over 10 years JPFO has been urging that citizens and legislators should make the most of the "gov't owes no duty to protect" argument to uphold our right to keep and bear arms. Now, a U.S. Congressman is doing just that.

Jump on the bandwagon yourself! If you don't yet have a copy of Dial 911 and Die, then just order one for yourself and one for your local congressman. Help your congressman use this powerful tool to drive another wedge against "gun control" at the federal level. Politically, there will never be a better time to educate your federal representatives and move them to protect our right to self-defense.

Maybe JPFO cannot take all the credit -- but what other organization has been consistently warning Americans that the government police owe no legal duty to protect individual citizens ... that you might just Dial 911 and Die?

Help us to keep the pressure on! Do what you can to get this crucial message to as many people as possible.
