GUN DEBATE HAS GONE CRAZY, BEYOND PARTISAN
Brady group, and major gun group reach 100% different result
Arizona has been ranked the number one state in the nation for good gun laws and the best place for gun ownership, by the largest consumer publication in the industry, Guns & Ammo, a fact virtually hidden by mass media. In contrast, the Brady group, which fights for restrictive gun-control, has given Arizona an “F,” trumpeted by media nationally. The omission highlights the distorted view news media presents to the public, a bias the journalism industry vehemently denies.
Even more significant, the nation’s fierce debate over guns and their role in society not only doesn’t happen on a level playing field, it is taking place without gravity. That the two main competing sides can rate a single player in such a diametric way suggests the core values of the teams, and not the facts of the situation, control the outcome of the debate. JPFO sees this as extremely dangerous to the right of the people to keep and bear arms. Balancing government power and exercising the G-d given natural right of self defense are in jeopardy.
If consideration of your rights can be so distorted that opponents can’t discern values, or accurately interpret our Constitution and history, the nation runs the risk of declining into lawlessness and chaos. In that event, it is a powerfully good thing the public is well armed, for it will be needed. It is JPFO’s position that Arizona is indeed a bastion of rights and sails a proper course. Giving it an “F” rating is a perverse distortion of what is good, just and constitutional. What Brady and their supporters seek diminishes human and civil rights, leaving criminals virtually unchecked in every case.
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 do 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.”
