U.N. Once Again Trying To Usurp Our Second Amendment Rights-- Will Convene Conference On "Small Arms" This Month

Friday, June 9, 2006

With an absurdly lengthy title that tells you all you need to know, the “U.N. Conference to Review Progress Made in the Implementation of the Programme of Action to Prevent and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All Its Aspects,” will begin Monday, June 26.  This meeting is a follow up to the “U.N. Conference on the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons” meeting that we reported on in the summer of 2001.  At that time, we told you that the Bush Administration made it perfectly clear that the United States would not support any proposal that threatened our Right to Keep and Bear Arms. 

But the U.N., fueled and financed by the likes of Rebecca Peters and George Soros, is at it again--and with a vengeance.

NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre has aptly noted that the Right to Keep and Bear Arms in defense of self, family, and country is self-evident.  In essence, our Second Amendment shows profound respect for human freedom, worth, and self-destiny.

But two centuries after it was codified into our Bill of Rights, the U.N. is trying to declare that this civil liberty is a cause of the world’s violence.  It is trying to claim jurisdiction over sovereign American citizens by crafting a global treaty that calls on us to surrender our firearm freedom and accept whatever lesser standard of freedom--if any--the U.N. deems appropriate.

The United States is the last truly free nation standing, offering every law-abiding human the greatest measure of freedom mankind has ever experienced, and neither the United Nations nor any other foreign influence may claim jurisdiction to meddle with the freedoms guaranteed by our Bill of Rights. 

To learn how you can fight the U.N.’s Global Gun Ban and save your Right to Keep and Bear Arms, please visit www.stopungunban.org, or call (800) 672-0636.  This site provides valuable information and an opportunity to order Wayne LaPierre’s new book The Global War On Your Guns.  The book spells out a chilling warning that gun owners in the United States and abroad must heed, and exposes a far-reaching scheme to pass a global ban on civilian ownership of arms--including YOURS! 

Help stop the U.N.’s attempt to thwart our Freedom.  Please visit the site or call the toll-free number today!
