Erin, WI --( Zelman was THE voice of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, and was a frequent contributor to AmmoLand Shooting Sports News.

He had written many fine and persuasive articles in support of our 2nd Amendment rights, including a seminal article that exposed the 1968 Gun Control Act’s direct connection to Nazi gun control law and by exposing the stupidity of Gun Free Zones.

Aaron had a take no prisoners way of thinking and challenged everyone from the NRA, to Washington bureaucrats to Ted Nugent in the name of the second amendment.

From his Obituary:

Aaron S. Zelman Executive Director of JPFO

Arron worked tirelessly for Jews For The Preservation Of Firearms. The JPFO’s mission is to destroy “gun control” and to encourage Americans to understand and defend all of the Bill of Rights for everyone.

Those are the twin goals of Wisconsin-based Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO). Founded by Jews and initially aimed at educating the Jewish community about the historical evils that Jews have suffered when they have been disarmed, JPFO has always welcomed persons of all religious beliefs who share a common goal of opposing and reversing victim disarmament policies while advancing liberty for all.

JPFO is a non-profit tax-exempt educational civil rights organization, not a lobby. JPFO’s products and programs reach out to as many segments of the American people as possible, using bold tactics without compromise on fundamental principles. Visit

Aaron’s passing means a great void has been created in the leadership to protect our god given second amendment rights.

Shalom good friend.

      Aaron will be missed, I’ve always considered it an honor to contribute to the production costs of his many educational videos, and will certainly miss hearing his deep voice on the other end of the phone.

      Rest in Peace my friend.

      Rest in peace, Brother Patriot, Aaron S. Zelman

    6. I first meet Aaron in Washington D.C. in 1994 and I was impressed with his knowledge and his calm composure. I bought the book that he had for sale and after reading it I joined JPFO. I talked with Aaron many times over the years and he was always the same, never showing fear and he always had a plan to take the fight to the enemy, he asked for and gave no quarter in the ongoing fight to protect our rights. To all of his family and close friends I send my deepest regards. Aaron will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Rest in peace my friend and know that you fought the good fight and those of us who knew you will continue taking the fight to the enemy.
