New talent at Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership


Alan Korwin stays on as Editor Emeritus

After 13 years—personnel changes at the top

Ever since JPFO Founder Aaron Zelman passed in 2010, an “inner circle” of dedicated individuals has kept his dream alive, running Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO), its internet and media presence and its publications. As Sentinel editor Korwin steps down after eight years in that role, Second Amendment Foundation Projects Director James Jones takes over the office of the highly regarded staunchly pro-gun-rights periodical. Subscriptions are free with membership.

Mr. Jones, as the Projects Director for The Second Amendment Foundation, has been involved in many facets of SAF, the most active gun-rights group in the nation, engaged in dozens of lawsuits to reverse gun-rights infringements at federal and local levels. His bio is at

Mr. Korwin, a consultant to JPFO since Aaron’s passing, has fulfilled many of the duties of an executive director. He manages publications for the organization, writes position papers and news releases, serves as a focal point for many of JPFO’s activities and runs the monthly political Salons.

With acute insight into the dangers of genocide learned during the Holocaust, JPFO seeks to expand citizen awareness of that threat. Governments kill and murder more people (“democide”) than any other factor, exceeding criminal activity by orders of magnitude. The deterrent value of guns and an armed citizenry, to resist encroaching efforts of government to render citizens docile and compliant, plus the balance of power that only public arms can provide, helps define JPFO’s role. “You can’t arm people and expect them to accept slavery.” And you don’t have to be Jewish to join JPFO, love of liberty is enough. To be on the ride side of history, support JPFO.
