“Why Jews MUST Learn How To Shoot”

Orlando Jihadi Slaughter Makes the Case
Jews are a bigger target than gays—along with all infidels

Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO) has just released the ninth in its series of illustrated booklets explaining why decent regular people must know how and be able to use firearms. “Why Jews MUST Learn How To Shoot,” featuring the Gran’pa Jack character, was written by noted cartoonist Kjartan Arnorsson and national gun-law expert Alan Korwin, with the late Ray Carter of JPFO.

The wholesale murder of innocent people by a jihadi in Florida makes the very point Gran’pa Jack explains: Evil exists in the world and no amount of laws, gun bans, official meddling or other band-aids can substitute for righteous defenders’ ability to shoot the perpetrators dead or otherwise incapable of further violence. As the Talmud teaches, “If someone comes to kill you, strike him down first.”

These truths have been known since the Bible was written and remain true to this day. Gran’pa Jack and his friends share them with his grandchildren in language even the president could understand if he listened. Reducing public access to the quality firearms and ammo our police and military prefer, as some misguided politicians are demanding, only makes matters worse, since we face the same adversaries—as the Orlando event showed. “The correct response to a mass murderer is not to restrict the public, but to empower the public and give us every advantage possible over potential criminals.” –JPFO Policy

The booklet’s 24 illustrated pages engage not only Jews but all Americans in heart-to-heart conversation about preventing violence and protecting people, families and communities. For 20 years JPFO has published Gran’pa Jack booklets to present serious topics in an easily accessible way, appealing to readers of all ages and backgrounds. Jack speaks truth to power without compromise in no uncertain terms, a hallmark of JPFO.

Eight prior editions, with more than 1.5 million copies in print, include:

  1. “Gun Control” Kills Kids!
  2. Can YOU Get a Fair Trial In America?
  3. It’s Common Sense To Use Our Bill of Rights
  4. “Gun Control” Is Racist!
  5. United Nations Is Killing Your Freedoms!
  6. Will “Gun Control” Make You Safer?
  7. Do Gun Prohibitionists Have A Mental Problem?
  8. Is America Becoming a Police State?
  9. Why Jews MUST Learn How To Shoot!

JPFO urges Americans to take the initiative and learn about our valuable tradition of an armed citizenry, and get educated about personal, home and family defense using firearms, which Gran’pa Jack teaches. Notably, JPFO does not advocate growing federal government power or multiplying its bureaucracies to deal with the threats of domestic crime and jihadi attacks. Instead, we view widespread private-citizen possession of firearms, awakened with skills and education, as the most powerful way to place effective homeland defenders everywhere in the nation. Review copies for the media on request.

BACKGROUNDER: The overarching mission of JPFO is to destroy the idea of “gun control” of any kind as a credible policy position.

So-called “gun control” does not control guns nor does it control criminal behavior. What it does do is disarm the innocent, leaving them helpless in the face of petty criminals, tyrannical governments and genocide. History keeps proving this.

Advocates of “gun control” are either ignorant, misguided, hoplophobic in need of help or evil. Their efforts and agendas earn and deserve scorn and derision as the foolish and dangerous proposals they are.

For more than 25 years JPFO has been at the forefront of the battle for the right to arms—challenging the lies of our opponents and the missteps of our allies. At times we stood alone, a voice in the wilderness, holding fast to our unyielding principles, and marking the way for other groups that have eventually found their way to our position.

It is not our aim to be contentious with our friends, but rather to stand firm in what is right, whether others stand with us or not.
“You don’t have to be Jewish to be a member of America’s most aggressive civil-rights organization.”
