Bill To Halt Global Gun Laws
Ron Paul (R-TX) recently introduced legislation
to ensure American taxpayers are never forced to fund United
Nations gun control schemes. Several of Paul's pro-gun colleagues
in the House of Representative have already cosponsored
the bill, which prohibits the use of U.S. tax dollars for
any UN measures that would infringe upon the 2nd Amendment
rights of American citizens.
bill, entitled the "Right to Keep and Bear
Arms Act" (HR 3125), recognizes that perhaps
the greatest threat to our 2nd Amendment rights comes from
global Bureaucrats. The bill cites several examples of UN
contempt for both American sovereignty and gun rights.
fact, the United Nations has waged a campaign to undermine
Second Amendment rights in America for more than a decade.
UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has called on members of
the Security Council to address the "easy availability"
of small arms and light weapons, by which he means all privately
owned firearms. In response, the Security Council released
a report calling for a comprehensive program of worldwide
gun control, a report that admonishes the U.S. and praises
the restrictive gun laws of Red China and France! Meanwhile,
this past June the UN held an anti-gun "Week of Action
against Small Arms" conference.
fact, French President Jacques Chirac and the socialist
president of Brazil, Luiz Lula da Silva, both advocate the
imposition of a United Nations TAX on firearms for various
legislation aims to halt the trend toward global gun laws
by withdrawing American funding for UN gun control measures,
while reaffirming that the 2nd Amendment is the law of the
land within our borders.
no surprise that UN bureaucrats want to impose gun control
worldwide," Rep. Paul stated. "They don't respect
national sovereignty, and they certainly don't care about
our Constitution. Congress should make it clear that America
will not pay for UN gun control schemes, nor will we allow
the disarming of American citizens."
ITEM: Ironically, at the same time the United Nations
was working to prohibit Americans from exercising their
Second Amendment rights to defend themselves, the Bureau
of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms was called to investigate
the illegal possession of submachine guns by bodyguards
to Secretary General of the United Nations Kofi Annan.
is ridiculous. Proposals to tax or otherwise limit rights
under the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution
are reprehensible and deserving of condemnation. Go to our
