George Soros Wants Your Gun
Red State ^ | 12 jul 05 | erick erickson

Make no mistake about it, George Soros wants your gun. In addition to funding political organizations to attack George Bush and the Republicans, Soros is also one of the leading backers of International Action Network on Small Arms ("IANSA"), a well funded lefty group dedicated to keeping you from your guns.

Right now the UN is meeting in New York to discuss small arms and IANSA is there to push for "an international, legally-binding Arms Trade Treaty" that would limit your 2nd Amendment rights.

One of the points IANSA stretches to make is that "gun violence is undermining the fight against poverty." IANSA says that "22 out of the 34 poorest countries are in or emerging from armed conflict" and "Almost 1000 people are dying from guns every day." Note that there is no distinction between military conflict and criminal activity in either one of those talking points.

Among the interesting ideas that IANSA promotes are that its "members around the world are working to reduce gun ownership in their communities" and "[a] gun in the home does not make anyone safer, and especially not women." There's no explanation on why they had to throw in the gratuitous point about women. Why should we trust IANSA's data? Well become they say so. IANSA also tells us why we should not trust the gun lobby. IANSA's talking points provide this tid bit:

The gun lobby says that Australia/Canada/England banned guns and now only criminals have guns -- crime rates have soared. Why would other countries follow?
These are figures provided by the gun lobby. Why would we rely on the gun lobby for unbiased research on gun violence? The truth is that if you regulate guns, you reduce the number of people shot dead every year, including suicides and accidents as well as gun homicides.
Notice, they did not actually contradict the gun lobby's statement, though they throw out a stastistic on "gun murder rates" dropping. The gun lobby's point is that crime escalates when the good guys can't own guns and the IANSA's silence on the matter is deafening.

By the way, if you want to see all of the IANSA's talking points for dealing with the media at the UN Conference, you can click here.

Check out IANSA's talking points.

As if I needed ANOTHER reason to despise George Soros and the UN.

I hate to bring up old quotes, but..

FROM MY COLD DEAD HANDS!

It is unconstitutional to follow international ideals,laws, or potentates (practically the reason for the second ammendment). No matter WHO tries to take away this RIGHT from me or mine,will find themselves at the business end of the object of the 2nd Ammendment!!!

Soros can have my gun too, stuck right between his beady little eyes, as he hears a voice something like Yosemite Sam saying "HOLD IT RIGHT THAR, YA COMMUNIST VARMINT!"

The best part of Soros ended up as a stain on his mama's mattress! (w/credit to Gunnery Instructor Hartman in 'Full Metal Jacket')

How old is Soros? He'll never run out of money, so maybe he'll run out of time before he can do any more damage to our country. I wouldn't be surprised to find out he's the one funding all the Muslim terrorists.

George Soros can take my gun if he gives me his $400,000 a year security team. Soros is such a jerk - what's next -- does he want poor people to take those unsightly bars off their windows?

After he takes your gun, the bars off your windows, then he brings in drug dealers to hand out heroin to your neighbors? Yeah, love the freakin' world he would create.

Then go elsewhere, if you're smart enough to actually search.....you'll find the same stats.

Alright, you want to know why we own guns?

Does anyone know why the Nazis told their own people that private gun ownership was bad?

They simply wanted to disarm the population, and leave them helpless in the line of resisting tyranny.

Do you want me to be disarmed and unable to resist some potentially dangerous, tyrannical future?

Think again, Soros, because we have more brains than you would assume that we have.
