Shooting not the same as murdering, key distinction lost

Most Gun Reporting is a
Misinformation Campaign

CNN's constant coverage of what it calls "mass shootings" disguises the fact that these are mass murders. The villains they always call shooters are actually murderers. America's 100 million gun owners, they're shooters—decent righteous people practicing, learning, teaching and when needed, defending themselves and others facing violent criminals. Self-defense with guns is absent from CNN but not in real life—a total misinformation and misdirection campaign.

When the late Dov Marhoffer, a holocaust survivor and advisor to JPFO gave his lectures—he remained sharp until his passing on July 2 this year—he made a point of insisting, "No vun vas killed in the Holocaust!" When the audience awe subsided, he exclaimed, "They vas murdered!" in his clear, thickly accented voice. Words matter, and Mr. Marhoffer used them to tremendous affect. Mass media, by calling murderers "shooters," propels a mass misinformation campaign.

By refusing to call murderers what they are, CNN and their mass-media colleagues give them a pass. Murderers should be outcasts, detestable, shunned by society, recognized as undesirable vermin -- but media make them superstars. Failing to say "Murderer!" is part of the uber-liberal approach to crime that releases felons from prison "to be kind and sympathetic," and deceptively blames everything but the criminal for crimes—it's the gun, the poverty, the parents, the lack of parents, poor schools, drugs, environment, even... global warming. Search that and be shocked.

Wake up—the proximate cause of crime is criminals who lack morals, parenting, standards, and fear of police, and thus savagely create mayhem. JPFO calls on all Americans to go shooting more, hone your skills, be a good shooter. If "news" media were to report accurately, the gun debate would end.


Support JPFO, speaking truth to power:

"Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, has been educating the public, mass media, and promoting the fact that guns are why America remains free since 1989, when Aaron Zelman, the son of Holocaust survivors took up this torch of freedom. We are shomrim, the watchers, concerned with safety and deterring tyranny. JPFO recognizes that 'Never again!' is a verb, requiring active support and available arms. So-called 'gun control' doesn't disarm criminals and doesn't control criminal behavior. It's a deceptive effort to disarm the innocent, leaving them helpless in the face of criminals, tyrannical governments and genocide. 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 invites disaster."

You don't have to be Jewish to fight by our side, you just have to love liberty.
