Trump's U.N. call for sovereignty is perfect timing

In the midst of the national frenzy for removing offensive symbols, many with controversial but historical significance, a Jewish civil-rights group is calling for destruction of the United Nations anti Second-Amendment-rights statue from the heart of New York City. President Trump just visited the U.N. to emphasize the importance of sovereignty–our national rights.

A Bill of Rights and civil rights affront

In its official statement, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, said: "This grotesque assault on the most fundamental tenet of the U.S. Bill of Rights, plus the basic civil and human right of Americans and all people to protect themselves from harm–and the kind of evil that lurks in the U.N. headquarters itself. The statue must be seen for what it is, and expunged. It's not art, it's a finger in freedom's eye."

"JPFO supports non-violence but that's not what this is. The pretzel gun denigrates every legitimate role firearms play in preserving peace, freedom, prosperity, deterring enemies, stopping crime and the jihad, providing food even at subsistence levels for the poor–in short, it is a statist abomination," according to Alan Korwin, an author and consultant to JPFO. "It conveys little notion or implication of disarming the horrific denizens of the U.N. and tyrants who rule much of Earth's population," he says. "Such a misguided affront to our heritage, history and constitutional guarantees springs from ignorance. It has no place on our soil." JPFO suggests moving it to a Human Rights Council nation like Iraq, Myanmar or Saudi Arabia, or perhaps communist China or Africa is appropriate, anywhere but the land of the free and the home of the brave, where real guns keep the violent at bay.

Rather than moving the six-inch bronze, typically imaged to look huge, melt it down for ammunition, as penance for the long-standing humiliating constitutional insult. Peace symbols are like flowers, feathers, doves, sunshine, hearts and water, not guns, JPFO says.


Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, is America's most aggressive civil-rights organization, dedicated to destroying the notion of "gun control" as any kind of credible public-policy position. So-called "gun control" does not control guns and doesn't control criminal behavior. What it does do is disarm the innocent, leaving them helpless in the face of criminals, tyrannical governments and genocide. History repeatedly proves this fact. Founded in 1989 by Aaron Zelman as a response to the Holocaust, JPFO speaks with the moral authority and tenacious commitment of survivors of persecution, and knows that surrendering your personal and family safety to government protection courts disaster. "You don't have to be Jewish to fight by our side, you just have to love liberty."
