    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.

    We don't need to worry about the U.N taking our guns... our own government has been pretty sucessful by themselves.

    It has been a successful slow creeping pattern of confiscation hasn't it? Given what has happened to our rights as a free people over the last 150 years, I would say that if our nation still exists 150 years from now, and the current trend continues, we will once again be subjects of a government and no longer citizens who empower one.

    I agree with Fo'shizzle - the US has done well and could really give the UN some tips on how to disarm honest people.

    I think they get the ideas here and other countries fall for them. Canada, UK, Australia, Jamaica, etc... they just fall for the crap we don't fall for. I wonder if the list of countries for gun control are the same ones that signed the Kyoto protocol?

    nah, australia didn't sign it.

    On the upshot, I am really glad I don't have to learn the countries of the world now. So much easier putting USSR on that big blob at the top than what all it split up into.

    In so much as, like, the Iraq, we don't know such as the geography.

    Gentlemen,

    This one is not a joke. Why can't 20% of Americans locate the United States on a map? Answer:


    I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uh, some people out there in our nation don’t have maps, and, uh, I believe that our education like such as in South Africa and, uh, the Iraq everywhere like, such as and I believe that they should, our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S., er, should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future for our children.
