OBAMA REVEALS ANTI-GUN U.N. INTENT; SENDS EX-SEATTLE MAYOR AS REP
Thursday, September 16th, 2010
BELLEVUE, WA The appointment of anti-gun rights former Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels as an alternate representative to the United Nations has removed any doubt about the Obama administrations intentions regarding global gun control initiatives, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.
Nickels, a founding member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns and the author of Seattles failed attempt to override Washingtons state firearms preemption statute, was sworn in Wednesday to help represent the United States in the UN assembly, according to the Seattle Times.
Putting an extremist gun banner in any position to represent this country at the United Nations amounts to renting a billboard for advertising against the Second Amendment, said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. While he was Seattles mayor, Greg Nickels supported every anti-gun scheme put forth by Washington CeaseFire, the Northwests most active gun prohibition lobby.
Nickels is a gun ban proponent, he continued, so his appointment as an alternate to the UN is a clear signal of Barack Obamas intention to rubber stamp the UNs global gun ban agenda. We had to sue Nickels while he was still Seattles mayor to overturn his illegal city parks gun ban. Now he gets to push his anti-gun philosophy on a world scale. It hardly seems a coincidence that Nickels has been appointed by the Obama administration at a time when the UN is considering treaties and initiatives that pose a serious threat to the Second Amendment.
Nickels was turned out of office in 2009, which was something of a feat in a liberal enclave like Seattle, Gottlieb recalled. His defeat in the primary demonstrated the degree of alienation voters felt from a politician who once epitomized the Seattle liberal establishment.
By naming Greg Nickels as an alternate representative at the UN, Gottlieb stated, President Obama has essentially told Americas 85 million gun owners that their firearm civil rights are in jeopardy. Nickels cannot be counted on to defend the Second Amendment because he would like to see it erased from the Constitution.
With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is one of the nations premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States. The Citizens Committee can be reached by phone at (425) 454-4911, on the Internet at www.ccrkba.org or by email to InformationRequest@ccrkba.org.
Let the Blue Helmets try to disarm the American People.
So, how much do we believe an election is going to fix this?
Tyranny and evil is moving through Obama.
Judging from the number of folks I’ve talked to around here, that is precisely what will happen.
I’m sighted in for MOBH. Keep your powder dry.
If anyone truly want’s my firearms is welcome to come and take them, but they should be VERY sure that they are willing and prepared to pay the price that I will demand.
This putz is going to be an “alternate” rep to the UN.
There is NO WAY a treaty banning firearms gets ratified by the Senate.
Agreed 100%, FRiend.
And even then, they should probably bring lunch.
the socialst democrats will have two choices: Stand down or be removed.
And, how about tried for treason against America?
Obama needs to be impeached, tried for treason and brought to justice.
As the saying goes, you are welcome to have my guns — bullets first.
I'm not sure exactly how much input the "putz" will have in the process, but he IS now part of the team that will continue to push for U.N. sanctions against U.S. gun owners. And as a founding member of the Mayors' Gun group, he will have access to the resources of liberal fascists such as Bloomberg and Soros. The fact that he was appointed by the marxist-in-chief should be cause for concern.
I do shake my head a bit whenever any of the gun rights groups go off on how we will "lose our Second Amendment rights." Since our rights do not come from government, we will lose nothing. It doesn't matter what treaty they sign, or how SCOTUS rules.
Keep your powder dry.
And, how about tried for treason against America?
Get's my vote!
Think of the thugs who make up the United Nations....those people want our gun rights? Obama and Hillary's base....anti-gun along with most of the other rights afforded us by God and put in place by the Founding Fathers. Obama and Hillary are Marxists, not freedom loving Americans.
