In the June, 2005, issue of Presbyterians Today, dealing with peacemaking, there was a side-bar about PPF. Our emphasis on handgun control was mentioned, and a reader responded with objections. Jim Atwood, a member of the PPF National Committee who is very active with the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, made the following response.
Yes, the Presbyterian Peace Fellowship works along with The Presbyterian Church, USA, to restrict the use of handguns in the US. That has been our church's policy for decades.
