    I come from a very anti, liberal Jewish background. No Kosher, but no guns either.

    Anti gun Jewish people, something that defies all logic. After all they went through one would think they would be the last ones to be anti gun. Human beings never cease to amaze me.

    I don't know anything about that particular organization but let me ask you something. Do the people you know support Israel or do they feel so removed from it that they don't "relate" any more? Just curious.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Most are rabid supporters of Israel. They can't see the paradox.

    Does my being Jewish & a gun owner count?

    Not until religion becomes the focus of the thread.

    I've always heard good things about JPFO, but I'm not a member.

    Looks like a great site ~ even had info for other races of people and why their gun rights were in jeopardy. Never had heard of them before, thanks for posting this.

    No, I don't want it to become a guns 'n religion thread. Having been raised by a very anti, liberal Democratic Jewish family, I never understood their anti stance. I was looking for a Jewish group that was pro-2A and came across JPFO. I was just wondering if anyone on DC is a member, and if so, their thoughts.

    I suspect JPFO is a fairly small organization. I, too am a member of a very liberal. gun-hating democratic Jewish family and congregation. The Jews I know generally tend to be much more idealistic than pragmatic in their world view. This is easy to understand given the idealism expressed throughout Jewish liturgy, doctrine and liberal media to which they subscribe. The idealism of Jewish America stands in stark contrast to the events and climate in Israel, where nearly everyone is an experienced member of the warrior class.

    Not a member, but from time to time I have seen some very well-thought-out and persuasive pro-2A stuff published by them. FWIW

    I have looked around the site some more, and found interesting things. I'm not sure where they got these statistics, but like I said, interesting:
