Senate Votes To Address U.N. Gun Ban Crusade
Friday, September 07, 2007
With the United Nations continuing its efforts to enact draconian, transnational gun control laws in countries around the world, yesterday the U.S. Senate passed the Foreign Operations appropriations bill, which included an amendment by Senator David Vitter (R-LA) that seeks to address the U.N.’s ongoing international gun ban efforts.
By an overwhelming 81-10 vote, the Senate passed Sen. Vitter’s amendment to prevent any funding to foreign organizations that infringe upon the Second Amendment rights of lawful American citizens. Any organization that adopts a policy anathema to the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment would no longer be eligible for U.S. financial assistance—including the U.N.
The gun ban issue in the U.N. has been percolating for more than a decade, and while NRA has been successful to date in precluding the U.N. from enacting its anti-freedom agenda, the bureaucrats at Turtle Bay remain committed in their zeal to push for additional restrictions on the rights of free gun owners in the United States and around the globe.
Global registration and tracking of firearms would inevitably lead to the global disarmament of free citizens everywhere; something that we cannot and will not let happen. NRA will remain vigilant in monitoring the U.N.’s anti-gun actions and speaking out in the international community in support of Americans’ Second Amendment rights.
Now is the time for all young men to come to the aid of their Country!
This is great news indeed!
Turns out that John Bolton has more of a legacy than that idiot Bill Clinton!
That's awesome to hear!
USMC rule # 23 of gunfighting: Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
I am the God fearing, gun toting, flag waving conservative you were warned about!
This is great news. IMHO we need to get out of the UN and get the UN out of the US.

A armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one has to back it up with his life.
It's about time someone responds to that useless body!
To those members in louisianna....Keep Senator Vitter in Office!!!!
A true patriot!
The realistic view: doesn't change much.
Doesn't mean the U.N. can't pass such crap. Just means that the U.S. government will be forced to officially (outwardly) suspend financial support of the U.N. or find alternative, under-the-table means of funding it. Either way, members of the U.N. would continue to have their normal commitments to adhering to resolutions, etc.
Though, that said, it is heartening to see there's at least a heartbeat of resistance across the senate.
Glad to hear that people are fighting this. Wish I could say that Canada is not involved, but at least with the present government, they aren't pushing this garbage.
This is good to hear, lets hope it sends a message.

Excellent news. The NRA website has some great footage on the anti-gun speeches of UN representatives. It infuriates me at the UN every time I watch it. DOWN with the UN! Disband that terrible organization that has not done one useful thing in its entire history of existence! We should not be wasting our resources funding such a terrible organization.
I definately agree with Old Chief! We pay approx 2/3's of the sanctions to the UN, leaving the rest of the world to pay the rest. It's high time that we worry about our own.
