The Presidential Campaign Demonstrated a Need

Jews Offer Gun Training to Joe Biden

"It's illegal to shoot guns into the air, or shoot people's legs."

"Joe Biden has publicly shown a certain lack of clarity and need for more education on safe gun handling and legal gun use," according to orthodox Rabbi Raziel Cohen, a certified firearms instructor and Ambassador with Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, http://www.jpfo.org. "I am offering to provide this to him, or anyone, to help advance proper gun ownership and dispel myths that may have been inadvertently advanced during the campaign," the Rabbi said.

Mr. Zev Nadler, a highly experienced firearms instructor working with JPFO agreed, saying, "We cannot encourage people to fire guns up into the air, a dangerous and illegal act," which Mr. Biden recommended in the Washington Examiner. Biden's advice to "just fire the shotgun through the door," Mr. Nadler continues, "violates the safety rule of knowing your target before touching the trigger." We certainly don't want to leave that impression in people's minds, he advises.

Progressives should work with us to substitute education and knowledge for fear and ignorance. It's just too dangerous to leave the eight million new gun owners—who rushed out for arms amidst the pandemic and absentee policing—along with the 100 million Americans already armed, without adequate training and instruction. "America has a diverse population of trainers, let's put them to good use," staff at JPFO agrees. America has a diverse population of trainers, let's put them to good use," staff at JPFO agrees.


“Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, http://www.jpfo.org 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 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.”
