Congressional Bill Pending:


Red Flag Laws Don't Fly in the Land of the Free

If you're too dangerous to have a gun—
you're too dangerous to be out in public!

Current Democrats' gun-law bill would release potential spree murderers

Campaigning for the Presidency and control of both houses of Congress on a platform that turns potential gun psychotics loose should be an automatic non-starter. Somehow, establishment media and a huge portion of the body politic see no problem with this plan. The national red-flag law Democrats want (HR 5717) would empower neighbors to "snitch" on each other, enabling authorities to confiscate firearms, then turn the supposedly disarmed psychotics loose on the streets. No medical or serious judicial review of the neighbors' claims would be required, just a good faith story.

Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, http://www.jpfo.org, is opposed to this plan, as every individual not afflicted by irrational gun-fear should be. Empowering neighbors, who may suffer from the debilitating terrors of hoplophobia, or gun fear, to turn in their neighbors, is a precedent never even considered in this nation of 100 million decent gun owners. People with morbid gun fear believe all gun owners are dangerous—is this who should enforce law?

Giving authorities power to confiscate firearms from you, without notice, no chance to confront your accuser, or even basic due process, violates the very fabric of our free society. It evinces a desire to subject us under absolute despotism, with no effect on crime or criminal behavior. It is people supporting such bills (S3254 in the Senate), who are dangerous and need investigation. https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/senate-bill/3254/text, https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/5717/text


Support JPFO, Standing for Truth Against All Odds:

“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.”
