JPFO Opinion: Post Sandy Hook Shooting Thoughts

Jews For The Preservation Of Firearms Ownership

Washington, DC –-(Ammoland.com)- It goes without saying that we all horrified beyond belief at the events that occurred at the Sandy Hook School, Newtown CT on December 14th — it is beyond comprehension.

Predictably there is immediate outcry directed towards guns and “gun control”, ignoring the fact that here was a mentally deranged individual who probably by any means possible would have secured firearms or other weapons to commit the atrocity  even had law abiding gun ownership been banned.

Imagine if even just one of the few ladies (Superintendent and others), initially killed so easily in their office at the beginning of the attack, had been armed and trained adequately in firearms usage.

Just perhaps the whole travesty could have been stopped right there with minimal or even no loss of life, other than that of the shooter. At the very least, perhaps the lives of the 20 children might well have been spared.

There is naturally heavy discussion about this subject on the web and it is almost too much to share with you immediately but we will try and run a selection of articles over coming days to try and help counter the rabid anti-gun bleatings.

For this alert, let us share just two comments which are in the category of “letter to the editor”. They are both on the same page and can be found here.

When are we going to learn" Hiding under desks and in corners does not work. "Lock downs" and waiting for police does not work. "Guns Free" zones don't work. Teachers and staff need to attack, with maximum lethal intent. "Guns/Weapons free zones" are unsafe. When outnumbered even a shooter can be a loser in a rock fight. Teachers will have to wait for a long time for a governmental solution. Teachers need to fix the problem themselves. Counter violence with all the courage, strength, meanness and all weapons at hand. Learn from the meanest student in the school. If the… Read more »

JPFO was founded by Aron Zellman, and does a good job of informing people about the horrors of gun control. However, the Prime minister of Israel is a hypocrite when he calls form Americans to disarm when the teachers and principles in Israel's schools are armed to protect the students. What the Hell?!

There is only one answer to these killings. The media needs to stop giving these people their fame and glory by telling who they are and flashing their pictures across the TV screens. That is what fuels them, not guns.We don't need to know who they are. Hitler had gun control and look how well that worked out for the Jews. When the Jews in the Warsaw getto had enough and saw that they were going to be killed anyway, they had old guns smuggled in and fought the Germans for a month until they ran out of ammo. Then… Read more »
