Colorado ––(Ammoland.com)- America is still fighting for its independence even though it was 236 years ago this week that our Declaration was signed.
Today, it isn't the King with his Red Coats that are threatening our ability to govern ourselves . . .
. . . the threat is coming from right here on our own soil.
This week, the world’s leaders, sinister rouges and merciless dictators are gathering in New York City to hammer out the now infamous “U.N. Small Arms Treaty.”
What this means is, this is an absolutely critical week in the fight to maintain our Second Amendment rights.
NAGR has been warning you about this meeting for years.
If you missed our repeated appeals for action, let me refresh your memory on this sovereignty-killing treaty.
Here's what the U.N.'s website has to say about the conference:
“From 2-27 July, all countries of the world will come together in New York to negotiate what is seen as the most important initiative ever regarding conventional arms regulation within the United Nations. A robust arms trade treaty can make a difference for millions of people confronted with insecurity, deprivation and fear.”
I know what you're thinking — this isn't going to affect me, a law-abiding gun owner who safely uses my guns for sport and self-defense.
After all, we're not giving guns to organized crime rings like Attorney General Eric Holder.
They're talking about you and your gun rights. After first saying that the treaty wouldn't affect lawful gun owners, they have now predictably changed their tune.
In a paper released by U.N. pencil-pushers, they threaten:
“United Nations agencies have come across many situations in which various types of conventional weapons have been . . . misused by lawful owners . . . arms trade must therefore be regulated in ways that would . . . minimize the risk of misuse of legally owned weapons.”
Take one guess on how they intend to “regulate” and “minimize the risk” of “misuse” by law-abiding gun-owning American citizens like you.
They intend to take them away or make guns so expensive to own that the law-abiding are forced to disarm while the criminals run rampant in our streets victimizing our families and communities.
And it's not just the actual guns they’re after.
They're targeting our “community attitudes” that “contribute to the powerful cultural conditioning that equates masculinity with owning and using a gun . . .”
What they're really saying is, they want to foist anti-Second Amendment indoctrination on your children's school.
They're saying the castration of great groups like the Boy Scouts who have firearms trainingas a part of their youth programs.
Simply put, the U.N. wants to destroy our American heritage and traditions.
That's not a threat — it's their stated purpose, and people in our government want to help make it a reality.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has even stated:
“The United States is committed to actively pursuing a strong and robust treaty that contains the highest possible, legally binding standards . . .”
Just like our forefathers, we must stand for freedom and our independence. They fought a crown . . . and now we fight an international anti-gun bureaucracy hell-bent on destroying our sovereignty and traditional way of life.
The choice for gun rights activists like you and me is clear . . .
Do nothing and become the servile slaves of first-world do-gooders and third-world dictators, or rally around our Second Amendment rights and break their line of oppression.
I know what side I'm standing with.
I'll be sure to keep you up-to-date on new developments throughout the month of July.
The fight could not be more important!For Freedom, Dudley Brown
