"Don't Fix NICS Background Check System!"

Background system cannot be fixed--go to Plan B

In an email announcement, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, published an article by an outside writer calling for repair to the NICS national background check system for guns. This was an editing oversight. The defective NICS system should be abolished, not fixed.

NICS failed, and could not possibly have stopped the Las Vegas murderer. NICS wastes untold fortunes that could go into real law enforcement, and has stopped virtually no real criminals despite inflated claims, now proven false*. It continuously denies innocent Americans fundamental rights without due process, yet is praised by "news" media and leftists, harmfully misleading the public.

Putting government in charge of exercising the Second Amendment runs contrary to the spirit and intent of gun ownership in this nation. Only the commission of real crime should institute police action. Providing national police with an on-off switch for gun sales, which NICS basically does, is abhorrent.

JPFO stands for eliminating NICS, and with it the bureaucratic infrastructure, without delay, not making it work "better." We ask our supporters for their understanding in letting that memo slip past the editor's desk. Although "improving" NICS is a talking point for other groups, it is not one for JPFO. So-called "gun control" is not a credible policy position, offering false promises of safety, leaving innocent people helpless and historically opening the door to oppression and genocide.

Even the posting's language should have alerted us, but it too slipped through. The report referred imprecisely to a shooter, instead of a murderer. We are all shooters. Being a shooter is good. More people should become shooters. JPFO encourages shooters. The media and the left want to steal this word from Americans. We've been over this before. Framing any discussion and denigrating that decent word or mindlessly attaching it to malfeasance hurts us all.

"The murderer in Sutherland Springs..." places the proper emphasis and is accurate, not intentionally vague, misleading or deceptive. The story was a horrid piece from JPFO's perspective, and again, we're sorry to have burdened our audience and the world with the sort of trash we expect from CNN and their propaganda cohorts claiming to be journalists.

NICS is an abomination. It not only failed to stop this psychopath, it could not, and no incarnation of it could. If anything, America should consider adopting the far less expensive BIDS (Blind Identification System) alternative. BIDS works like wanted posters. Instead of sending the names of millions of innocent gun buyers to the FBI, as leftists want and have implemented, the FBI simply alerts gun dealers of hardened criminals who are banned, by secure and encrypted means with tracking logs. Leftists and many politicians hate that--it shows them up for the frauds they are. Don't expect the "news" media to mention this.

The BIDS System explained:

The Politically Corrected Glossary:



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."
