JPFO set to merge with 2nd Amendment Foundation

There’s good news to report in the coming merger next week of the Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership with the strong and vibrant Second Amendment Foundation.

The Second Amendment Foundation, led by Alan Gottlieb, is most famous for bringing a long string of lawsuits in federal courts to force the recognition of the right to keep and bear arms. We all owe SAF a great debt of gratitude for their work in the successful Heller and McDonald decisions – which have led to subsequent court decisions striking down anti-gun laws.

As an Illinois resident, I am grateful for SAF’s “take it to the courts” strategy which forced Illinois to adopt right-to-carry over some very angry anti-gun legislators and a cry-baby, gun-hatin’ governor.

JPFO has long been an iconic civil rights organization, fighting for the rights of Jews to keep and bear arms to help ensure there’s never again another Holocaust. The organization’s founder, Aaron Zelman was a passionate and notable advocate for basic civil rights for most of his adult life and he formed JPFO in 1989. He tirelessly worked to educate people on what happens to disarmed Jews (and Gentiles, as well).

Most didn’t realize that JPFO has been in desperate straights for some time now, especially so since the 2010 death of its founder.

Individuals busted for gun offenses will most likely be listed on a public registry- much like sex offenders.

The city council is introducing a bill tomorrow–co-sponsored by Costa Constantinides–that aims to combat gun violence by mandating that all gun offenders are listed on an online registry, which the public can search. Individuals can sign up for free notifications, so they can be warned whenever a new offender moves into their neighborhood.

The bill, if it were to become law, would operate citywide. However, the city council is looking to pass a resolution that would ask the state to pass a bill that would put this registry into effect statewide.

More women are gun buyers, sellers, and activists

Niki Jones founded Sure Shots women´s pistol league, which focuses on self-defense. It has about 300 members in Texas.

More women than ever own guns.

Nearly 79 percent of firearms retailers reported an increase in female customers between 2011 and 2012, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation. From this surge in popularity come classes, specialized apparel, custom firearms, shooting-group memberships, and conferences for women.

Women have also become the sellers, lobbyists, and business owners.

Carrie Lightfoot founded the Well Armed Woman in Scottsdale, Ariz., in 2012 to be a resource for women shooters, by selling female-friendly merchandise, establishing educational chapters, and hosting certified firearms-instructor training sessions. In just two years, Lightfoot said, it has become one of the largest female gun groups in the country, boasting 350 chapter leaders in 43 states.

“We focus on educating, equipping, and empowering women shooters,” she said of her company’s goal to introduce women to guns in a safe, supportive environment.

JPFOs Aaron Zelman: In Praise of an Uncompromising Bastard!

Aaron Zelman, JPFO’s late, great founder, was a man of uncompromising principles. He wouldn’t have yielded a millimeter on some things. If you’d have held him upside down and threatened to drop him over the rim of the Grand Canyon unless he repudiated pure, hardcore gun rights, he’d have probably said, “Go ahead. Do it.”

And then, if you did, he’d have found a way to land safely on his feet. He was that kind of guy.

On the other hand, Aaron was a very reasonable human being. If you could make a good argument for something, he could change his mind faster than a Lamborghini goes from zero to 60.

Example: Back when he and I used to write together, he called me up one day and said, “I want to do an article in favor of X.” He didn’t really say “X,” of course. He named an issue, not obviously related to guns, that was in big favor with certain conservatives and libertarians at that moment. The specific issue isn’t important.

Shooting of Suge Knight on Sunset Strip ‘Unacceptable,’ Dunce LA Mayor Says

Published on: August 24, 2014

A shooting on the Sunset Strip early Sunday that left former rap impresario Marion “Suge” Knight and two others wounded is “unacceptable,” West Hollywood’s mayor said.

“This was just a regular night of fun on the Sunset Strip, and it was disrupted by criminals,” said West Hollywood Mayor John D’Amico. “Hopefully the Sheriff’s Department will find out who the person or persons were and prosecute them to the full extent of the law.”

A law enforcement source said the Death Row Records founder’s wounds did not appear to be life-threatening. Another man and a woman were also shot, and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said they are expected to recover.

The shooting occurred shortly after 1:30 a.m. at a nightclub in the 9000 block of Sunset Boulevard. The club was hosting a party in honor of Chris Brown, who has a new album coming out.

On Sunday morning, Sunset Boulevard remained closed off as detectives investigated what happened. On the side of the 1Oak club was a huge sign advertising the Brown party.

Chris Brown said Sunday morning on Twitter: “It’s disappointing that we as a society can’t have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes.”

NY Gubernatorial Hopeful Rob Astorino Promotes Job Plan Outside Remington Arms

Republican Gubernatorial Candidate and current Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino touted his jobs plan outside the battle-worn Remington Arms in Ilion on Thursday.

On Friday, 107 workers will walk out of the gun manufacturing plant for the last time. Of those layoffs, roughly 27 are new.

Astorino, flanked by local Republicans including Assembly members Claudia Tenney and Mark Butler, said that one of the first things he’d do if elected is sign an executive order prohibiting any new business regulations until the 750,000 he says are currently on the books are closely examined.

Astorino also tried to give hope to remaining Remington workers.

“I would sit down with the people of Remington, the union members, the workers and the owners and say ‘please, give us a little time. As soon as I get in there, we’re going to change things. We want you to stay in New York. We don’t want you to go to Alabama.’ ”

Libscum Officials “Brace Themselves” in Ferguson for Exoneration of Officer (Fear of Ghetto Rioting)

Missouri State Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson
As darkness fell Thursday night, the few blocks of this St. Louis suburb that became the scene of nightly, often violent protests was calm as public officials milled about, assuring residents parallel investigations would reveal the circumstances of the fatal shooting of black teen Michael Brown by a white police officer.

It appeared many of the public figures were bracing the community for the possibility that Officer Darren Wilson would not be charged with murder as evidence continued to mount that he was attacked and severely beaten by Brown only minutes after the teen robbed a convenience store Aug. 9.

A St. Louis County Police Department officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told WND that department reports confirmed Wilson suffered a broken eye socket in a struggle with Brown before the shooting.

“For Michael Brown to fight the police officer and try to take his gun away and then to say, ‘Don’t shoot me,’ that’s resisting arrest, and it’s a felony,” he said. “All you have to do is touch the officer’s gun and you’ve committed a felony.”

‘Groceries Not Guns’: Will Kroger Back Down To Bloomturd-Funded Gun Control Group?

Each time gun safety groups Moms Demand Action and new partner Everytown For Gun Safety have taken on a retail or restaurant chain in recent months, they’ve been successful.

The pattern generally goes thusly: the groups, led by mother-of-five Shannon Watts and bolstered by $50 million from Michael Bloomberg, start a petition asking a national retailer to enact a policy against the open carrying of guns in their establishments. A spokesperson then releases a statement saying the company will follow state and local laws pertaining to firearms.

Moms Demand Action then exerts pressure on the retailer in question, starting a social media campaign and boycotting the business. Days or weeks later, the store or restaurant chain capitulates, asking that shoppers and diners leave their guns at home.

Group Identifies Towns Associated with Releases of Illegal Immigrants Convicted of Homicide

The Center for Immigration Studies has tracked down the names of the cities and towns associated with the 169 criminal immigrants the Obama administration released last year.

In an analysis of the data by CIS’ director of policy studies Jessica Vaughan, obtained in advance of its publication by Breitbart News, Vaughan broke down the cities and states in which the zip codes land.

Thursday, Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley released a recent letter from Immigration and Customs Enforcement revealing the zip codes of most of the 169 immigrants convicted of homicide-related crimes who were awaiting deportation proceedings but released last year.

ICE provided the information after Grassley called on the Department of Homeland Security for answers earlier this summer following confirmed reports that ICE released 36,007 immigrants convicted of nearly 88,000 crimes last year. The criminal immigrants were all awaiting the outcome of deportation proceedings.

“ICE records show that these convicted killers were associated with 96 different cities and towns across America. The city with the largest concentration was Miami, with seven convicted murderers freed by ICE, followed by Los Angeles with six,” Vaughan wrote in her Friday analysis.

Feds Claim Freedom is Bad For Your Health

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is trying to ban smoking… Everywhere. Well, at least everywhere someone might be working, so I guess that’s not as many places as you might think. (Hat tip to Obamanomics.) The CDC’s National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has suggested banning all tobacco consumption at every work place in the nation… Because, ya know, the nanny-state can never be too big, right?

The ban would apply to not only office buildings, restaurants, and retail stores, but it would also apply to any outdoor location (such as construction sites, landscaping work, and even places like commercial farms). Oh… And it’s not limited to only cigarettes. Even smokeless alternatives would be banned under the Nannycrats vision for a tobacco-free labor force. As a side note: unconfirmed reports of Michael Bloomberg weeping with joy have been trickling in since the CDC decided to out-nanny the former NYC Mayor.

‘Guns Save Lives’ ads return to Phoenix bus stops (Libs Tried to Stop Them – AND FAILED)

PNI Phoenix gun ads

For nearly four years, Phoenix officials have fought to keep the politically and emotionally charged statement “Guns Save Lives” off city bus shelters.

The city conceded that battle earlier this summer after it lost an appeals court ruling, and advertisements with the controversial statement have popped up at bus stops from downtown to northeast Phoenix.

Aside from stirring conversations about gun rights, the case could have broader implications for how Phoenix regulates the content of ads on the bus and transit system. Civil-liberties advocates say it opens the door for more ads that blend political and commercial messaging.

The dispute started in 2010, when city officials removed from Phoenix bus stops 50 ads with the words “Guns Save Lives” set against the backdrop of a red heart.

As if the happenings in Ferguson, Missouri aren’t bad enough, now we have the situation in Salt Lake City, Utah with which to contend.

As the whole country knows, for the last week or so, large groups of blacks have taken to the streets of Ferguson in order to express their outrage over the shooting death of a young black man, 18 year-old Michael Brown, by a white 28 year-old police officer, Darren Wilson. Mayhem and violence have been the order of the day. President Obama has weighed in on the issue, describing it as “heartbreaking.” Attorney General Eric Holder has promised that “change is coming.”

On Wednesday, August 20, a white woman—a lone Darren Wilson supporter on the streets of Ferguson—had to be taken into police custody for fear of her life as swarms of angry blacks began to close in on her. In addition to being screamed at, she was reportedly assaulted because she dared to sport a sign that read: “Y’all need to get your facts straight.”

#Ferguson: When A-Holes Collide!

Well, I have been trying to lay low on this thing for a while, because I knew as soon as all of the breathless reports started about Michael Brown’s death, more facts – and let’s stress that, FACTS – would come to light that would blow the immediate narrative right out of the water. The initial collision between alleged lawbreaker and law enforcer is of little consequence to me, because criminals and cops collide daily. It is the inevitable aftermath caused by cultural sicknesses that are now embedded in several groups of assholes that I want to discuss.

First group of assholes: the media

For the love of all that’s holy, the US media is full of brainwashed cultural-marxist, limp-wristed, sissy men and their “you-go-girl,” change-the-world sisters. They lack ability to think critically and they frame every issue within the bucket of rotting tripe the pampered communists in their J-schools filled their spongy young minds with.

Their complete inability to just report the goddamned facts in ANY story without interjecting some marxist agenda is a key factor for there being more blood in the streets than need be. Rumor, innuendo, and just flat-out bullshit ruled the initial days after Michael Brown was shot. Every loud-mouthed race-baiter from across the land was dragged onto every news station to run his suckhole about a situation in which he had ZERO facts, but decided to crank up the animosity for the doe-eyed, guilt-filled, leftist lady announcers and their beta male orbiters. The bullshit continues unabated today, and will continue tomorrow, and the next day and the next. If this thing goes nuclear, I will not cry for journalists when the mobs they incited burn news offices to the ground and drag reporters naked through the streets before they string them up on lampposts.

We are on a bad path and we need to stop before it goes too far. Our government agencies have become rogue governments-within-a-government, they are now arming themselves and our domestic police forces. At the same time, Mr. Obama is decimating the military.

Using heavily armored vehicles and putting law enforcement into military gear keeps them safer but at the same time, it sends the message that they are our domestic military as opposed to a peace keeping force.

Ferguson was recently dubbed a war zone because of the way the police controlled the protesters and rioters- more like a military than a police force.

Since I wasn’t there, I can’t say if it was warranted.

I do remember the insane military presence on the streets of Boston as they hunted for the 19-year old Boston bomber. That appeared to be overkill as did the martial law.

SWAT is being used to confiscate guns from gun owners who have fallen from grace, illegal renters, and innocent people. It’s becoming a concern. There seems to be little oversight.
