Liberals Must Step Back for School Safety

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE • May 21, 2018 • Contact: Floyd Neeland
In Santa Fe, Texas, a teacher, a former Marine, was next door to the latest mass murderer -- disarmed due to irrational liberal gun policy. That particular liberal obstacle, disarming competent adults, must end. This is the position of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership.

"When it comes to gun policy, the political left is harming America, delaying rational programs, and flatly denying the public's rights. Denying civil rights always has bad consequences, as we saw here," said Alan Korwin, an author and consultant to the group. JPFO notes that arming pilots was delayed for years by left-wing fears, the same as their virtually paranoid efforts to block non-existent "invisible" guns, which became the police-standard polymer sidearms, and delays to the public's crime-stopping concealed-carry permits, now working just fine in all 50 states.

"Liberal democrats are mainly to blame for keeping schools defenseless," said Alan Gottlieb, JPFO's Chairman. "By constantly lobbying to prevent any form of armed protection in schools these politicians defeat the Bill of Rights and put our children at risk. Democrats and progressives must relent and protect our kids." Texas law allows firearms in schools in the hands of trained people. "Remove the roadblocks, save our kids, and make it so nationwide," he said. JPFO promotes sane gun policy.

“Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, 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.”
