Wokeness has a dark side

Exclusion and Inequity

Women and children are the hardest hit

Inclusion sounds nice at first blush, but the truth is in the outcomes

The inalienable human right to protect yourself and your family—or even strangers—from violent criminal attack is being systematically excluded from political and social scenes. Not only by gun-ban proposals, but legal obstacles and prosecutors who side with criminals instead of the innocent. And by failing to teach schoolkids about the value of arms, or the equitable laws of self-defense, society is becoming more dangerous and hardened vicious criminals are gaining an upper hand.

When police are not around for deterrence and protection, people must fend for themselves. It is one of the main reason this nation was founded with the right to keep and bear arms at its core. The public has known from the beginning, when the chips are down you must be self-reliant. The feminist movement used to trumpet this idea—your safety primarily depends on you. Expecting some "man" to come to your rescue is not only misogynist and offensive, it's not true. With trans-men now being admitted to women's schools and prisons, because it's "woke," rape is increasing where safety ought to be assured. So-called "inclusion" at that level is phony, with dire results.

Eight million new gun owners since 2020 attests to the fact that people are starting to overcome the offensive bias that says guns are a man thing, and women are simply too weak. More than half the newcomers are women. They are making life more dangerous for rapists—as it should be!

JPFO is leading an effort to make self-defense, protective laws more robust and inclusive. No woman, man or child should fear the legal system if they justifiably act in the democrat-inspired era of defund-police. Law must be on their side, from warning an approaching bad guy to the person's inevitable demise, cut down in the act of attempted rape, murder, kidnapping or other felony.


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.”
