    United Nations Threat Continues

    NRA-ILA :: Legislation

    Friday, July 18, 2008


    Over the past 7 years, the United Nations (UN) has been working to reach agreement on an international treaty on the trade in small arms. A "Meeting of States" has occurred every two years on the topic, and is going on once again in New York City. The threat this poses to our Second Amendment rights is real. Thanks to the efforts of U.S. officials, its progress has been delayed, but, unfortunately, not stopped.

    The "Programme of Action On Illicit Small Arms Trade" is the working group in the UN trying to create an international agreement to regulate firearms worldwide. The scope of that regulation is being debated, along with how far that regulation would intrude on the domestic policies of member nations. Former U.S. Representative to the UN John Bolton made it clear that the U.S. would not accept any agreement or treaty—or even participate in any effort that would result in an agreement or treaty—that would threaten the Second Amendment rights of Americans. Even after his tenure at the UN ended, Bolton's influence over U.S. policy remains, and has greatly hindered the ability of this group to advance its agenda.

    It is vital to note that the International Action Network on Small Arms (IANSA) is the primary driving force behind these activities. IANSA is led by radical international anti-gun activist Rebecca Peters. Peters formerly worked for George Soros' Open Society Institute and maintains close ties to the rabidly anti-gun Soros. Their anti-gun agenda includes the imposition of domestic gun control regulations on all nations, and includes broad scale bans on gun ownership, as was masterminded by Peters in Australia.

    This radical anti-gun agenda has been held at bay by the policies set in place by the Bush Administration, but those policies may end on January 20, 2009. On that day, a new U.S. President will be inaugurated, and it will be his policies that are advanced. If Barack Obama wins the White House, it is a near certainty that the men and women he will appoint to key positions at the State Department will cooperate with the anti-gun agenda of groups like IANSA. The imposition of a treaty, if approved by the Senate and signed by the President, could undercut the gains made with the Heller decision, and make the Second Amendment rights of Americans subject to international restriction.
    A president has powers that go far beyond his authority to sign or veto legislation. The appointments he makes to cabinet offices and ambassadorships will play an enormous role in shaping U.S. policy. Under President Bush, the appointments of men such as John Bolton, Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito have made the difference that has protected and advanced our individual liberties. Under a President Obama, all that could be lost due to the appointment of men and women who oppose our Second Amendment rights.
    We've been protected from these fools for 8 years, but that protection may run out soon.

    Not a happy thought. I was under the understanding that no treaty could be made that was unconstitutional. I hope I was not mistaken.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    true, but we're dealing with the prospects of a person getting into the white house who is backed by anti-gunners and who has a very open anti-gun stance. not to mention, the party this man represents is very pro-UN.

    We just need to get rid of that criminal organization all together. I'm sure NY needs the space for parking!

    They never do what they embargo, they steal more than they help, and not to mention that most of them are a bunch of panty waist liberal/socialists or thugs that prey on those who they are supposed to be protecting.

    Reclaim the land and deport/jail the lot of them.

    Rant over, please continue.

    Paco,

    How do you REALLY feel now that you've sugar-coated it?

    Seriously, I agree quite a bit with what you say. Can't figure out where they are helping the world much.

    The sooner we give the U.N. the 'boot'...the sooner the world will be a better place.
    This international 'corrupt' organization is a disgrace to the world.

    Stay armed...drop out of the U.N. and give the building to the homeless...stay safe!

    Agreed. Get the US out of the UN.

    Because of those idiots, Admit-a-jihad of Iran (Ahmadinejad) got to visit the UN HQ in NYC.

    The United Nations is one of the most corrupt and despicable organizations on the planet. They do /some/ good but it is far outweighed by the atrocities that their members commit and sweep under the rug. Their record on Israel, the Balkans, China, Iraq and Africa as a whole is just deplorable. They have financed terrorism and under-the-table pay-offs from Saddam Hussein have been traced all the way up to Kofi Annan. Under the UN flag, Dutch troops cooperated in the slaughter of thousands of people in one night in Bosnia.

    Their stance on our rights is no surprise considering they don't care about the rights of anyone in any nation as long they can go on telling themselves that their [brown] doesn't stink.

    Don't know if it's true, but there's a story around that the lot the UN building stands on was once a feed lot for hogs.

    Time to back the trucks up to the doors and let loose some feral hogs?

    As an organization that was (and may still be) primarily funded by the US, I feel we should be within our rights to just disband the damn thing.
