Much Ado About JPFO

Which is not to say that I think the organization titled Jews for the Preservation of Firearm Ownership is "nothing"; not at all.  I just have difficulty coming up with good article titles at times...

Anyway, for those of you who may not have noticed, there is currently a deal being made whereby the Second Amendment Foundation will acquire JPFO.   This has pissed off two bloggers whose opinions I respect, Claire Wolfe and Nicki from The Liberty Zone blog, who not incidentally are writers for JPFO (or were, in Claire's case; she resigned in the wake of this revelation as an act of protest).

On the other hand, Oleg Volk -- another blogger whose opinion I respect -- has said  "I see this as a good development. SAF can give JPFO greater reach."

And on the gripping hand, David Codrea, whom I also respect, is maintaining a guardedly neutral stance about the whole affair.

I'm not really sure what to think here.  I definitely don't want JPFO's unique voice to be silenced or become generic, but I also see benefit in greater funding and resources.

I'm not telling you what to think, either. I just encourage every one of you to read as much about it as you care to, come to your own decision, and let the leadership of JPFO where you stand.
