Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership http://www.jpfo.org a 30-year-old civil-rights organization that tracks efforts to disarm the public has moved its symbolic "Gun Confiscation Clock" ahead by two minutes to 12 minutes to midnight, after the House of Representatives enacted two improper gun-related measures.
Under H.R. 8, enacted Feb. 27 in the House, innocently handing a firearm to anyone outside your family and immediate acquaintances becomes a criminal act. This violates the Constitution in letter and spirit, violates the oath of office the legislators took to get sworn in, and demonstrates with crystalline clarity: they are disregarding the Second Amendment. This can't be done legitimately. Democrats have declared war against the gun rights of everyone.
The bill does not apply to criminals--because they can't have guns at all--a transfer ban would just be an add-on charge for their felony of having a gun in the first place. Only law-abiding people like you are directly affected. Democrats understand this, or should. "They lay groundwork for taking away guns without the commission of crimes. This was unthinkable just a few years ago," said Alan Korwin, a consultant to JPFO and author of numerous books on gun law. "It's astounding the media has treated it blandly, and there isn't a national uproar on the streets," he continued. "How did democrats stray this far from principles?"
"There is no way for The JPFO Gun Confiscation Clock to remain fixed," said Alan Gottlieb, Board Chairman of the group. "They're coming for our guns and they've said so in writing. Hand your gun to a person and you're subject to arrest, which means loss of your gun, if they get their way with this proposal."
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.”
