03/28/2003 Archived Entry: "Aaron Zelman is a Man of Honor"

SOME MALCONTENT IS SPREADING CALUMNIES ABOUT A WONDERFUL MAN. I won't dirty this blog by quoting or linking to these vomitous spewings. I will say that Aaron Zelman is truly one of the most honorable individuals I know. He and I have now worked together on two head-bangingly intense, year-long projects, The State vs the People and the upcoming video documentary "Innocents Betrayed." Even during moments we've driven each other crazy (which, believe me, can be frequent on projects like these), Aaron has never for a moment lost my respect and admiration. I'd put him high up on any list of the 10 most important people in the life-saving, liberty-saving work of restoring our right to keep and bear arms.

All you have to do is go look at the vast and deep stores of intellectual ammo at Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership to understand what this man's vision has forged. What you can't see there is Aaron's personal kindness, good humor, and integrity. Is he a diplomat? Uh ... no. And he could be quietly implacable if you crossed him. But never doubt the quality of this man's work and his honest devotion to it.

Shame, shame, shame on those who wish to cripple or destroy a vital labor of life and liberty merely to satisfy their own petty, festering spites.
