For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been doing some writing for Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO). I’ve also decided to help out the organization in other ways, including setting up its social media.
For those of you who haven’t heard of JPFO, let me educate you.
Founded by Jews in 1989, JPFO initially aimed at educating the Jewish community about the historical evils that Jews have suffered when they have been disarmed. JPFO has always welcomed people of all religious beliefs who share a common goal of opposing and reversing victim-disarmament policies while advancing liberty for all. It was the brainchild of Aaron Zelman (1946 – 2010), a leading national civil-rights activist.
No, I’m not Jewish. I’m culturally Jewish. I was brought up in a Jewish household, but I’m really agnostic/atheist.
But my faith, or lack thereof, does not matter. What matters is that JPFO strives to educate potential allies on the dangers of gun control. What matters is that JPFO works to support our fundamental rights. And what matters is that JPFO, its founder the late, great Aaron Zelman and its current dedicated, talented, passionate staff of Second Amendment supporters love freedom.
So I would encourage you to visit JPFO and explore its library of great Second Amendment resources.
Join JPFO. You don’t have to be Jewish. You just have to love freedom. Go here and become a member or donate to this great organization.
Follow JPFO on Twitter, if you have a Twitter account and spread the word to your followers and encourage them to join JPFO. I hope to have a Facebook page and a Google+ page up at some point too.
I’m excited to be a part of the revival of JPFO! I think there’s a perception out there that Jews are generally liberal and anti-gun, and I would like to change that perception and that reality.
Education, excitement about fundamental civil rights and a reminder that a disarmed populace is vulnerable not just to violent predators, but also to tyrannical government. That’s what JPFO can offer.
Please join us. Do it today!
