Colorado ––(Ammoland.com)- Just after midnight on election night, Barack Obama picked up the phone and called Hillary Clinton.
He asked her to do one thing . . .
. . . renew his administration’s war on the Second Amendment rights of Americans.
Less than 12 hours later, Clinton signed on to new negotiations to pass the UN Gun Ban.
On that same day, the Mexican delegation at the UN “called for an international, legally binding and solid treaty that would establish regulations for the conventional arms trade, including in small arms and light weapons . . .”
To make matters worse, Mexico is also leading a growing contingent at the UN hell-bent on ramming through the UN Gun Ban even if there is significant opposition.
So it should come as no surprise that gun owners are in for the fight of our lives when bureaucrats from across the globe meet in New York to pass the UN Gun Ban March 18-28, 2013.
But even before the UN meets again in March, the threat to our gun rights is alive and well — RIGHT NOW — during the lame duck session of Congress.
As you may remember, NAGR's grassroots army led the charge that stalled the “Small Arms Treaty” Conference this past summer.
Many gun owners thought the battle was over having heard the “inside-the-beltway” institutional gun lobby declare victory.
But my staff here at NAGR knew their victory celebration was premature, and we continued to recruit, mobilize and inform gun owners nationwide about the dangers facing their gun rights.
And less than five weeks later, petty tyrants at the UN rammed the UN Gun Ban through the Programme Against Small Arms meeting.
These new “International Small Arms Control Standards” are a nightmare of third-world gun control demands . . .
. . . and the anti-gun crowd at the UN is crowing that this is exactly what they need to finally pass the “Small Arms Treaty.”
A quick review of the UN Programme's new Small Arms Control Standards is enough to make my skin crawl.
This is nothing less than full-bore registration, confiscation and destruction:
- *** Begin “marking small arms and light weapons and keeping accurate and easily retrievable records of them;”
- *** Create “an appropriate weapons collection or registration strategy;”
- *** Identify “groups holding small arms and/or light weapons and their age/gender profiles, the types and number of weapons held;”
- *** Determine “capacity for destruction, including required improvements to equipment and procedures.”
- Worse, as we've seen in the past, the Programme Against Small Arms can be directly implemented via Executive Order — without a single vote in Congress.
As more and more details leak out about what the UN is planning, the scarier this fight becomes.
The stakes are clear — our gun rights are on the line.
If you truly value your Second Amendment rights, please help me fight to save them.
That’s why it’s more important than ever that ALL gun owners stand arm-in-arm in opposing the UN Gun Ban.
Thanks, in advance, for taking action.For Freedom, Dudley Brown
