Just some fresh stuff in from NRA-ILA today -

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

U.N. CONFERENCE ON "SMALL ARMS" WILL CONVENE NEXT WEEK

As we recently reported, 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. The conference's absurdly lengthy title
tells you all you need to know--this meeting is about "action to prevent
and eradicate" your rights. And make no mistake, the U.N., fueled and
financed by the likes of Rebecca Peters and George Soros, is trying to
do just that (if you have any doubt about where Rebecca Peters stands on
the issue of a U.N. sanctioned ban on your firearms, please visit
www.nraila.org/CurrentLegislation/Read.aspx?ID=2283 to view video of her
publicly stating her views). But they're in for a fight.

As CNN.com reported this week, conference chairman Prasad Kariyawasam
has received more than 100,000 letters of complaint from Americans who
want the U.N. to stay out of the business of regulating lawful gun
ownership in the United States.

To learn how you can continue to 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!

Day one of the UN gun ban summit
Jun 27, 2006
by Cam Edwards

They’ve gathered in New York City, the best and brightest minds in the global gun ban movement. Oh, they don’t want you to think for a second that they’re actually interested in your guns. Kofi Annan as much as said so yesterday, when he told the attendees of the Small Arms Review Conference, “This Review Conference is not negotiating a ‘global gun ban’, nor do we wish to deny law-abiding citizens their right to bear arms in accordance with their national laws.” Got it, gun owners? There’s nothing to fear from the UN when it comes to your guns.
It’s too bad for Kofi that many of the countries attending the summit didn’t get his memo. Yesterday’s speeches were full of calls for expanding the current agenda to include the civilian possession of firearms. Hans Winkler, speaking on behalf of the European Union, called the current Program of Action “the key starting point for further action on small arms”. The ambassador from Australia, Robert Hill, spoke glowingly of his country’s gun laws that “require the registration and licensing of all firearms owners, prohibit a range of automatic and semi-automatic long arms and handguns, and mandate minimum firearms safety training and storage requirements.”

The statement from Indonesia’s representative was perhaps the clearest example of what these countries are aiming for.

“We believe that no armed group outside of the State should be allowed to bear weapons. We also believe that regulating civilian possession of Small Arms/Light Weapons will enhance our efforts to prevent its misuse. In our view, the issue of ammunition should also be addressed in the context of the Program of Action because in the absence of ammunition, small arms and light weapons pose no danger.”


Not every country is as transparent as Indonesia. When looking at the statements of the various representatives, what isn’t said is just as important as the words we actually hear. Take, for example, the comments by Brazilian representative Ronaldo Mota Sardenberg. He told the summit, “this Review Conference should not limit ourselves to renewing our commitment to the full implementation of the Program of Action. It should rather be taken as an opportunity to address the Program’s shortcomings, by means of the adoption of substantive aimed at strengthening and complementing its mechanisms.” In other words, what we’ve got right now doesn’t go far enough. This comes from a country tried to ban civilian ownership of firearms outright (the referendum failed last fall).

The anti-gun summit continues for the next two weeks, and you can get daily updates from http://www.NRAnews.com Executive Editor Ginny Simone every afternoon on “Cam and Company”, heard on the aforementioned NRAnews.com and Sirius Satellite Radio. Coming up on Tuesday, the United States issues its opening statement.

Cam Edwards is the host of “Cam and Company” on www.nranews.com and Sirius Satellite Radio. A veteran talk show host and political analyst, he blogs at www.camedwards.com in addition to his daily talk show. Cam lives in Northern Virginia with his wife and five children.

This is gonna be a stressful two weeks to watch.

There'll be fist-pounding and expositions on how bad guns are - all with about zero relevance to actual good uses. Paint with a broad brush is what they do - ''guns bad'' - end of story.

Now - IF - somewhere within the forthcoming debacle, was some discussion as to how, effectively, to control the armed criminal and HIS guns, then just maybe it might be of use - tho as we know we already have way too many firearms laws on the statute book as it is - they just need implemented, other than the non-constitutional junk that has crept in.

If anything at all will prove just how much gun control is about control - it will be this fiasco. :frown:

The UN is a pathetic organization of despots and lunatics. The sooner we get rid of them the better.

I think UN is a great name for them. UN-american, UN-educated about firearms, UN-able to create a one world government, that is the ultimate goal of the UN isn't it?- a one world government, one currency, one gun law, one religion? sounds the apocolypse to me.
I think C. Heston should be the UN rep for the US.

There will be a revolution before the UN tells me how to run my life.

I also have nothing good to say about the UN. They are corrupt at the top and all the way down the ranks. They are so anti-United States it would be funny if it wasn't me they wanted to take down.
