Gingrich Calls for Universal Right to Bear Arms at NRA Forum-UN Treaty, Is Fox News Reporting This?
Daily Beast ^ | April 14, 2012 | Ralph Mitchell

Posted on 04/14/2012 6:37:25 AM PDT by mitchell001

Newt Gingrich has proposed a UN treaty to foster the God-given inalienable right of humans to have the Right to Bear Arms, so dictators, thugs, rapists, etc. can no longer make people live in fear throughout the world. This is a HUGE proposal. Please let me know what TV networks are reporting on this major idea by a Presidential candidate. Is Fox News still talking about stay at home moms, GSA parties and Romney's family life? Seriously, let's watch for coverage of this Right to Bear Arms UN treaty proposed by Gingrich. Let's see which TV networks report on it!

Fox and Friends Saturday is more of a children’s version of the “news” so I doubt they’d report on it.

I’d rather just get rid of the UN.

I agree.

The UN is not a legitimate forum for anything, even if it appears to be for the good.

FOX "News" lives only to PIMP Romney and Obama.

24/7 -- And twice on Sundays.


Brit Hume and Chris Wallace are so RINO that
Ted Kennedy would have been more conservative by now. ;-)X

Our legitimate universal gun rights aren’t respected in the USA as it is. I’m not concerned about the rest of the world at this point.

You said it! I’m sick of the cutesy banter on the “curvy couch” and the Howdy Doody sound effects.

Now.... if Gretchen & her gal pals were to show up on set in bikinis, I might amend my criticism somewhat. ;^)

(Back on topic) FReepers everywhere have observed that the Trayvon incident, ONE SINGLE SHOOTING, is galvanizing the entire gungrabber movement complete with talk of abridging the individual right of self defense. We can only hope that Zimmerman is tried & acquitted (let the cities explode, I say lock & load) which will deflate most political momentum toward reinstituting 1960’s era gun control.

Still, I doubt that any candidate or incumbent will proclaim, “I’m Senator Smurdlap and I’m going to disarm the violent majority!” (Schumer & Feinstein, they might).

The UN is the real enemy. They will stomp all over anyone that dares to not fall in line with their one-world-goverment socialist, Utopian vision.

So, why is Newt lending them any credibility?

Any UN Treaty that touches the right to keep and bear arms is dangerous for Americans, even if it purports to "give" others the right to keep and bear arms.

We are already fighting to keep our GOD-GIVEN rights to bear arms against domestic enemies; why we want to open up any such treaty to interpretation by the one-worlder, jackbooted UN thugs? Our Constitution GUARANTEES the RKBA "shall not be infringed"; why mess with perfection?

No thanks. If it was my choice, the only notice we'd give the UN would be an EVICTION notice. Get the hell off our sovereign soil, and not another dollar would go to the UN.

If he had asked me, I would have suggested leaving the UN would be the better choice. But he didn’t, so I guess you’ll have to ask him that.

Seriously, I do think it is yet another of those ‘now or never’ issues. Maybe it’s already to late for anyone to pull out.

This perfectly defines Gingrich in a nutshell.

He is brilliant at generating ideas that can’t work in the real world.

Is the idea brilliant? Yep, everybody in the world should have the right to self defense.

Is there a snowball’s chance in hell of the UN EVER PROMOTING THIS LET ALONE FIGHTING IT AT EVERY CHANCE?

This is so obvious, no answer is needed.

And there you have your classic Gingrich. He comes up with a nice brilliant utopian idea that would be fabulous if executed, but it’s execution is impossible.

And this is why Speaker Gingrich accomplished almost nothing of the Contract with America or anything else for that matter.

But he sure talks a good game. Too bad nothing useful comes of it.

“And this is why Speaker Gingrich accomplished almost nothing of the Contract with America or anything else for that matter.”

I suggest strongly you vote for the Kenyan bastard. You will not be missed here.

“the violent majority”

Since we know who they are and they know who they are, the phrase, “violent majority” should be popularized but not by the media.

As I.

John Bolton said he will get us out of the UN if he is in a position of authority.

I love that man.

Its kind of odd how conservatives with the closest ties to the UN are most vehemently opposed to it. John Bolton and Alan Keyes both hate the UN with a passion.

They’ve seen how the sausage is made.

Although Newt may have meant well but a sincere patriot would never in any manner speak in positive recognition of the UN but instead would demand the UN be severed from the US altogether

They can’t hate the UN anymore than I do.

Not only would I get us out the UN, I would kick their asses out of the U.S. I would give those crooks 48 hours to pack and leave.

In the Canal Zone where I grew up, any family that misbehaved was given 24-48 hours to pack and leave; therefore, 48 hours is not unreasonable.

No thank you. I’m a conservative. I don’t vote for radical communist muslims.

I strongly wish Gingrich had been worth a damn to Conservatives and to America, instead of pushing global warming environmentalism with Nazi Pelosi.

It is 2012. What has Gingrich done for conservatives since 1995? What has he done for Conservatives in the past 17 years?

Anyone? Bueller?

I've done some traveling in some pretty backward parts of the world..parts of Africa,Southeast Asia,South America.. and I can assure you that there *are* parts of the world where the 2nd Amendment wouldn't work.I'm not even in favor of *everyone* in *this* country being allowed to own firearms.Individuals with certain types of criminal convictions and people with certain types of mental illness or defect are what I'm talking about.

And yes,boys and girls,I've already donned my asbestos armor.Have at it!
