Movement on the U.N. Gun Ban
Mexican President and Chicago Mayor call for end of U.S. Sovereignty.
Colorado ––(Ammoland.com)- A storm of liberal anti-gun opinion is swelling to force international anti-gun policies on American citizens as NAGR continues the fight to protect the Second Amendment from international gun grabbers.
Recently we reported that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Obama Administration are pushing for Senate ratification of the United Nations’ “Small Arms Treaty.” The National Association for Gun Rights has taken the lead on stopping this end-run around the Constitution by contacting millions of Americans about this impending threat to their liberties, and working with principled leaders in Washington, D.C. to build a bulwark against the treaty.
NAGR has been the lead organization in opposition to the Small Arms Treaty, conducting high-level meetings with Congressional leaders and delivering hundreds of thousands of signed petitions to members of the U.S. House and Senate, demanding the United States oppose this treaty.
Recently, NAGR Executive Director Dudley Brown met with U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) to lay out strategic plans to defeat this threat to our constitutional liberties. United Nations working groups are meeting this summer to outline the language of the next “Small Arms Treaty” which is virtually assured to include extensive bans on handguns, semi-automatic rifles and rifle ammunition. The U.N. is planning to vote on the Small Arms Treaty in 2012, and international and local liberals are lining up in support of selling American sovereignty to buy international favor.
In order to prepare the ground work for a treaty that is sure to be a full scale attack on our right to keep and bear arms, national and international gun banners have begun the siren call of international safety over American rights.
These internationalists have the gall to stand before Congress and demand that the United States disregard the Constitution for the good of global society. Mexican President Felipe Calderon addressed a joint session of Congress and demanded that U.S. lawmakers ban so-called “assault rifles” to stop crime in Mexico. President Calderon is powerless to stop the ruthless drug cartels that are destroying his country, yet he is demanding that the U.S. ban your semi-automatic hunting rifles.
Calderon went on to use the well of the U.S. House of Representatives to blame the rampant violence in Mexico on the 2004 repeal of the Clinton/Feinstein assault weapons ban.
While it may seem unlikely that a renewal of the 1994 assault weapon ban would be passed by the full Congress, ratification of the UN gun ban would only take a majority of U.S. Senators to pass. This is why NAGR has placed the UN Gun Ban as its highest priority for 2010.
Not long before Calderon’s outrageous comments before Congress, Chicago Mayor Richard Daley joined the chorus to subjugate American interests to the whim of international favor.
In the face of the Supreme Court overturning Chicago’s handgun ban and after being rebuffed by the high court in his $433 million lawsuit against gun manufacturers, Daley wants the World Court to supersede U.S. law in firearms cases.
In April, Daley convinced dozens of mayors, including Mexico City’s, to join him in petitioning the World Court to overturn U.S. regulations protecting firearms and firearms manufacturers.
Gun banners like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama know the American people don’t support European-style gun bans. They’re hoping to subvert the American people and the electoral process by using international agreements like the UN Small Arms Treaty to achieve their anti-gun ends.
The staff and members of NAGR are continuing to stand against this international arms seizure attempt. To find out the latest, subscribe to AmmoLand Shooting Sports News for the latest news.
