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.
This page originally started after JPFO took issue with the NRA over their stance on the BATFE - that being it was felt, overly supportive of an agency which had proven over and over to be flouting the second amendment as well as unjustly persecuting law abiding gun dealers and owners. JPFO’s feeling is that this over funded and out of control agency should be dismantled. Since the original "NRA letter" other items have been added to the page, all in some way involving the NRA’s seeming lack of consistency over 2A matters.
7/14/10 ... Just in - yet another seeming proof of NRA's trend to limit 2A with "concessions". The NRA actively opposed and sought to undermine gun-rights legislation offered in the Senate by Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK). - read about it here.
7/01/10 ... JPFO adds further material, much confirming the many disasterous compromises. —
More recent additions ....... (May 2010) - "NRA grades candidates on the curve" - more possibly contentious assessments and decisions by the NRA-PVF.
(Feb 8th 2010) The case of McDonald vs City of Chicago has generated much contraversy and there are various articles dealing with this. In order, read ...... "Will Your Gun Rights Live or Die?" then - "The NRA elbows its way into the McDonald Case", "Incoming opinions on NRA’s elbowing in on the Mc Donald Case" and "More Comments on the NRA and the McDonald case". Read also this article on the Washington Post and this one - Lawyer Fight! (The McDonald case links index page )
Recent addition - Now archived here on JPFO. - from American Rifleman 1968 - an archive article sourced from Right to Keep and Bear Arms, "The NRA Supported the National Firearms Act of 1934", "The National Rifle Association has been in support of workable, enforceable gun control legislation since its very inception in 1871."
November 2006 (NRA letter and JPFO response)
"As a matter of policy, the NRA does not call for BATFE to be abolished"
Written by the NRA in defence of their stance on the BATFE - following which JPFO responded to point out the many failings over time whereby the NRA took little or no action to shore up or help abolish the already abused BATFE treatment of the Second Amendment.
The ATF, which began as a supposedly dedicated taxation authority has grown in leaps and bounds to become an over funded, out of control giant which has taken unprecedented actions, unlawfully, against good and honest citizens including the now infamous events at Waco and Ruby Ridge.
