Model self-defense laws are spreading nationally to:

Make Life More Dangerous for Violent Felons

Laws must be hard on evildoers, and clearly protect good folks

The idea that violent criminals get to walk, while innocents suffer, must end

We've reached a point where too many decent women and men are afraid to use their firearms for the intended purpose of self-protection and defense of hearth and home. This must change—the Second Amendment and its usefulness cannot be watered down to placate misinformed progressives and protect criminals from harm. Judicious use and legal threat of deadly force are well established deterrents to crime. While everyone is screaming to do something about crime, JPFO is acting. We have a plan.

Working with preeminent self-defense attorney Mitch Vilos, author of Self Defense Laws of All 50 States, JPFO is distilling the best essence of gun-owner protection laws to serve as a model for the nation. Not every state is empowered to "throw the book at" bad guys, especially when innocent women, men or even children use guns to stop vicious crimes. Too often the law is aimed at the innocent victim. That's simply wrong. The public needs protection from that sort of legal abuse. At this point, people are armed and ready. Now it's time to protect them better when they are forced by criminals to use firearms for legitimate purposes. Contact and join our effort.

Moving forward we, in association with other civil-rights groups, will be developing and promoting National Model Self-Defense Laws. While federal bureaucrats are hard at work trying to disarm the public—which is illegal infringement and banned—we'll counter that with: victim empowerment, use-of-force review boards for pre-trial exoneration when appropriate, and strong presumption of reasonableness if victims defend themselves against known or new felons and their heinous acts.
Safety first. Rights before trial. Provide deterrence like police used to. Stop criminals cold.


Support JPFO, speaking truth to power

“Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, 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.”
