Skip to comments.We're From the U.N. and We Want Your Guns

The U.N. will gather in New York City this July for the 2006 Small Arms Review Conference. Doesnt the name alone make you nervous? The U.N. is reviewing guns. If you dont own one, doesnt it make you want to go out and buy one just so you can be ready for whatever Kofis got planned?
Wayne LaPierre is plenty nervous, which is why hes written, The Global War on Your Guns: Inside the U.N.s Plan to Destroy the Bill of Rights. Sound alarmist?
His critics think so, claiming that the aim of the conference and its supporters is only to deal with the illicit sale of small arms, so it would have no effect on any legally traded arms. But check out the U.N.s own explanation and see what you think (emphasis mine):
By unanimously adopting the UN Programme of Action to address the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons (UNPoA), in 2001, the UN Member States committed to collecting and destroying illegal weapons, adopting and/or improving national legislations that would help criminalize the illicit trade in small arms, regulating the activities of brokers, setting strict import and export controls, taking action against violators of such laws, and better coordinating international efforts to that end.
Sounds like theres some wiggle room in there to me. I got to talk to LaPierre, executive vice president and chief executive officer of the National Rifle Association, about his new book and the new fight facing gun owners.
LaPierre has been charting the U.N. gun-ban movement since the mid-1990s, when all of the nuclear freeze non-governmental organizations (NGOs) morphed into gun-ban groups and hijacked the disarmament machinery of the United Nations, he said.

"NRA warns of U.N. gun control
U.S. participating in upcoming small-arms conference"

ARTICLE SNIPPET: "An American delegation will participate in a controversial United Nations small-arms conference criticized by Second Amendment advocates as a threat to U.S. gun ownership.
The U.N. Small Arms Review Conference will meet in New York City June 26 to July 7 to discuss illegal trafficking in arms, "ineffective national controls" and related issues.
The U.N.'s disarmament effort features a program in which it buys back weapons in nations torn by civil strife. But National Rifle Association Vice President Wayne LaPierre insists the U.N. is concerned about more than illicit arms in African hot spots. He says the global body wants the firearms of American citizens and much more.
"So, after we are disarmed, the U.N. wants us demobilized and reintegrated," says the NRA's executive vice president, Wayne LaPierre, according to the Economist magazine. "I can hear it now: 'Step right this way for your reprogramming, sir. Once we confiscate your guns, we can demobilize your aggressive instincts and reintegrate you into civil society.' No thanks.""
I go on record as resisting this.
Why we must never give up our guns to this POS organization
The NRA should do a "recruit a buddy" campaign for this July 4th, see if it can swell its membership some.
So we should expect another appeal for funds from the National Reasonable-regulation Ass? To accomplish what, another reasonable infringement?
See heep://www.nrawol.com links to http://www.keepandbeararms.com archive of NRA loving-gun control abuses that are as evil as Sarah Brady's and less honest. NRA lifer recta may osculate my fundament. Tagline...
Doesn't the U.N. have something else better to do with it's time?
They are about as useful as boobs on a bull!
Take the U.N. by eminent domian and convert it into condo's.
The DUMmies don't seem to realize that getting the NRA more involved only hurts their party. Bottom line is that the NRA is more popular than any democratic candidate we've had for the last two elections. Just watching Al Gore back away from gun control due to the union rank and file's distaste for his gun-control beliefs should teach them to stay away from this subject. Oh, yeah, I forget that DUMmies never learn.
Still, without the efforts of the NRA you would already be a felon. I will continue to support them.
The UN wants to make all private ownership and possession of firearms illegal. Therefore any sale or trade of firearms to or by any private party would be "illicit" and punishable by the UN. The US has to make it clear to the UN gun grabbers that we will not agree to or tolerate any such negation of our Constitutional rights by any outside organization.
This is just one more excellent reason why the US has no business being part of the UN. The socio-political philosophy and agenda of the vast majority of UN nations is diametrically opposed to that of the US. I want the US out of the UN and the UN and it's arrogant, corrupt, lawbreaking agents of 2-bit totalitarian regimes out of the US.
And I'm 'series'.
Troll? Hardly. That poster is a lot more protective of A2 than the NRA who he is criticizing.
The "guns debate" is the Key to the continuing success of this nation. The minute the second amendment is repealed, the left wing of this country will go into action to turn America into a police state.
The UN must be thrown out of this country immediately.
They're not violating you Second Amendment rights, they're just "regulating commerce". The New Deal writ large.
I'll be more than happy to hand over my guns to the UN.....one bullet at a time!
