Because newly proposed federal gun laws are infringements—


Support from Jewish Civil-Rights Group Announced

Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, jpfo.org, a 30-year-old civil-rights group endorses and supports a states' rights "Gun Sanctuary Policy" approach to gun safety as a safe, legal and rational approach to peaceably prevent the spread of federal Second Amendment infringement at the local level.

"Under Sanctuary Policy, gun rights you have now
set a baseline. Proposed reductions are null and void.
The Constitution's Supremacy Clause only applies to constitutional laws."

"What these new Sanctuary bills are saying, in simple terms, is that any reduction of rights people currently enjoy in Sanctuary Zones respecting arms, ammo, accessories, possession, sales, transfers or anything else arms-related is infringement, and infringement is banned. Proposed reductions are null and void. Rights you have now set a baseline. Repealing any existing infringements would be appropriate. Later.

"For teeth, the bills may go further. Anyone who infringes on your civil right to keep and bear arms commits a misdemeanor or felony—depending on the place, the nature of the offense, and frankly, how ticked off the sponsoring legislators are at people proposing or attempting these civil-rights denials. Good legislators don't take lightly to abridging civil rights, which is what infringement is. No one should, whether it's 'We don't serve your kind,' or 'No coloreds at this water fountain,' to 'Carry is prohibited here even with your earned and paid for government permission slip,' Denial of rights under color of law, or by conspiring with others is illegal and harsh punishment attaches (18 USC § 241)."

That description will appear on national newsstands soon, in the popular magazine American Handgunner. Online outlets are covering the news, easily searched.


“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.”
