UN Going After All Privately Owned Firearms

ALERT: Your right to own a firearm is hanging on by a thread! In it’s most ambitious effort yet, the UN and the Obama regime are working together to pass the Arms Trade Treaty to control and/or ban ALL PRIVATELY OWNED FIREARMS! The anti-gun nuts are holding secret meetings to craft a slew of uber-restrictive gun laws known as the Arms Trade Treaty. This Progressive backed treaty could become international law as soon as 2012. The globalist gun agenda wants to disarm the world one gun at a time! Take action NOW to protect YOUR GUNS!

Congress is back from vacation – tell them to VOTE NO to the UN Arms Trade Treaty!

Alan Gottlieb, Founder and Executive Director of CCRKBA and his wife Julianne Versnel, have been on the front lines fighting the anti-gunners at the UN. In June, Alan and Julianne worked to veto anti-Second Amendment language in the Small Arms Treaty. Both Alan and Julianne attended as NGO (non-Governmental Organization) delegates. It’s no surprise that NGO representatives were told that they would be shut out of most of the meetings. Clearly, the UN doesn’t want anyone interfering with the passage of this bill. Alan and Julianne can’t win this war against gun rights alone. They need the help of patriots like you to pledge your support to STOP THE UN FROM ATTACKING YOUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS!

The UN wants to make all firearms subject to international law. The Arms Trade Treaty could:

  • Prohibit firearm and ammunition manufacturers from selling to the public.
  • Prohibit any transfer of firearm ownership.
  • Require US citizens to deliver any banned firearms they own to the local government collection and destruction center or face imprisonment.
  • Require micro-stamping on all guns.
  • Destru ction of “excess” firearms.

IF THE UNITED STATES SIGNS THIS TREATY AND IT IS RATIFIED BY THE U.S. SENATE, THE UN ARMS TRADE TREATY WILL BECOME THE LAW!

The UN propaganda machine is hard at work churning out manipulated “facts.” The UN says guns murder hundreds of thousands of people a year. Well, the UN conveniently forgot to leave out the fact that guns save lives. Each year, firearms are used 80 times more often to protect the lives of innocent citizens than to take lives. In the U.S. crime rates are the highest where gun laws are the most restrictive.

The UN Socialists claim that illegal guns used in armed conflicts kill 300,000 people a year. Again, the UN decided to leave out the evidence that armed conflicts aren’t always necessarily bad. I guess the gun haters need to brush up on their American history and learn about a little thing called the American Revolution. Our founding fathers fought for freedom from a tyrannical and abusive government. If there was an Arms Trade Treaty in 1776, our country would not exist.

The UN believes that if we take away guns from all “insurgents” our world would be a safer place. Wrong. Our founding fathers were considered insurgents. The UN erroneously thinks that anyone fighting for freedom is a threat. Guns protect citizens from governments who abuse their power. The only thing keeping the United States from turning into a Marxist Socialist regime is our right to keep and bear arms. With a guy like Obama in power it is terrifying to think what would happen to our country if we didn’t have our Second Amendment Rights! We must act NOW to preserve our right to protect ourselves and our families from an opressive government at the State and Federal level!

That’s what’s at stake here. Our freedom. Our future.

EDITORIAL: The U.N. gun grabber

Global Small Arms Treaty threatens your right to self defense

By THE WASHINGTON TIMES 6:51 p.m., Thursday, May 27, 2010

 American gun owners might not feel besieged, but they should. This week, the Obama administration announced its support for the United Nations Small Arms Treaty. This international agreement poses real risks for freedom both in the United States and around the world by making it more difficult – if not outright illegal – for law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms.

 The U.N. claims that guns used in armed conflicts cause 300,000 deaths worldwide every year, an inordinate number of which are the result of internal civil strife within individual nations. The solution proposed by transnationalists to keep rebels from getting guns is to make the global pool of weapons smaller through government action. According to recent deliberations regarding the treaty, signatory countries would be required to “prevent, combat and eradicate” various classes of guns to undermine “the illicit trade in small arms.” Such a plan would necessarily lead to confiscation of personal firearms.

This may seem like a reasonable solution to governments that don’t trust their citizens, but it represents a dangerous disregard for the safety and freedom of everybody. First of all, not all insurgencies are bad. As U.S. history shows, one way to get rid of a despotic regime is to rise up against it. That threat is why authoritarian regimes such as Syria, Cuba, Rwanda, Vietnam, Zimbabwe and Sierra Leone endorse gun control.

 Political scientist Rudy Rummel estimates that the 15 worst regimes during the 20th century killed 151 million of their own citizens, which works out to 1.5 million victims per year. Even if all 300,000 annual deaths from armed conflicts can be blamed on the small-arms trade (which they cannot), governments are a bigger threat to most people than their neighbors.

 This U.N. treaty will lead to more gun control in America. “After the treaty is approved and it comes into force, you will find out that it has this implication or that implication and it requires the Congress to adopt some measure that restricts ownership of firearms,” former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John R. Bolton warns. “The [Obama] administration knows it cannot obtain this kind of legislation purely in a domestic context. … They will use an international agreement as an excuse to get domestically what they couldn’t otherwise.”

 The U.N. Small Arms Treaty opens a back door for the Obama administration to force through gun control regulations. Threats to the Second Amendment are as real today as ever.

Gun Control: What Is the Agenda?

by Paul Craig Roberts

Some years or decades ago, I researched and reported on the Sullivan Act, one of America’s first gun-control laws.

New York state Sen. Timothy Sullivan, a corrupt Tammany Hall politician, represented New York’s Red Hook district. Commercial travelers passing through the district would be relieved of their valuables by armed robbers. In order to protect themselves and their property, travelers armed themselves. This raised the risk of, and reduced the profit from, robbery. Sullivan’s outlaw constituents demanded that Sullivan introduce a law that would prohibit concealed carry of pistols, blackjacks and daggers, thus reducing the risk to robbers from armed victims.

The criminals, of course, were already breaking the law and had no intention of being deterred by the Sullivan Act from their business activity of armed robbery. Thus, the effect of the Sullivan Act was precisely what the criminals intended. It made their life of crime easier.

As the first successful gun-control advocates were criminals, I have often wondered what agenda lies behind the well-organized and propagandistic gun-control organizations and their donors and sponsors in the United States today. The propaganda issued by these organizations consists of transparent lies.

Consider the propagandistic term “gun violence,” popularized by gun-control advocates. This is a form of reification by which inanimate objects are imbued with the ability to act and commit violence. Guns, of course, cannot be violent in themselves. Violence comes from people who use guns and a variety of other weapons, including fists, to commit violence.

Nevertheless, we hear incessantly the Orwellian Newspeak term “gun violence.”

Very few children are killed by firearm accidents compared to other causes of child deaths. Yet, gun-control advocates have created the false impression that there is a national epidemic in accidental firearm deaths of children. In fact, the National MCH Center for Child Death Review, an organization that monitors causes of child deaths, reports that seven times more children die from drowning and five times more from suffocation than from firearm accidents. Yet we don’t hear of “drowning violence,” “swimming pool violence,” “bathtub violence” or “suffocation violence.”

The National MCH Center for Child Death Review reports that 174 children 18 years old and under died from firearm accidents in 2000. The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control reports that 125 children 18 years old and under died from firearm accidents in 2006. In 2006, there were 77,845,285 youths in that age bracket.

In 2006, violence-related firearm deaths of 18-year-olds and under totaled 2,191. A large percentage of these deaths appear to be teenagers fighting over drug turf.

According to the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, drugs are “one of the main factors leading to the total number of all homicides. … Murders related to narcotics still rank as the fourth most documented murder circumstance out of 24 possible categories.”

According to the National Drug Control Policy, trafficking in illicit drugs is associated with the commission of violent crimes for the following reasons: “competition for drug markets and customers, disputes and rip-offs among individuals involved in the illegal drug market (and) the tendency toward violence of individuals who participate in drug trafficking.”

Another dimension of drug-related crime is “committing an offense to obtain money (or goods to sell to get money) to support drug use.”

Obviously, decriminalizing drugs would be the greatest single factor in reducing incarceration rates, the crime rate and the homicide rate. Yet, gun-control advocates do not support this obvious solution to “gun violence.”

Those who want to outlaw guns have not explained why it would be any more effective than outlawing drugs, alcohol, robbery, rape and murder.

All the crimes for which guns are used are already illegal, and they keep on occurring, just as they did before guns existed.So what is the real agenda? Why do gun-control advocates want to override the Second Amendment? Why do they not acknowledge that if the Second Amendment can be overridden, so can every other protection of civil liberty?

There are careful studies that conclude that armed citizens prevent 1 million to 2 million crimes every year. Other studies show that in-home robberies, rapes and assaults occur more frequently in jurisdictions that suffer from gun-control ordinances. Other studies show that most states with right-to-carry laws have experienced a drop in crimes against persons.

Why do gun-control advocates want to increase the crime rate in the United States?

Why is the gun-control agenda a propagandistic one draped in lies?

The NRA is the largest and best-known organization among the defenders of the Second Amendment. Yet, a case might be made that manufacturers’ gun advertisements in the NRA’s magazines stoke the hysteria of gun-control advocates.

Full-page ads offering civilian versions of weapons used by “America’s elite warriors” in U.S. Special Operations Command, SWAT and covert agents “who work in a dark world most of us can’t even understand” are likely to scare the pants off people who are afraid of guns.

Many of the modern weapons are ugly as sin. Their appearance is threatening, unlike the beautiful lines of a Winchester lever-action or single-shot rifle, or a Colt single-action revolver, or the World War II 45 caliber semi-automatic pistol — guns that do not have menacing appearances. Everyone knows that they are guns, but they are also works of art.

A little advertising discretion might go a long way in quieting fears that are manipulated by gun-control advocates.

The same goes for hunters. Recent news reports of “hunters” slaughtering wolves from airplanes in Alaska and of a hunter — indeed, a poacher — who shot a protected rare wolf in the U.S. Southwest and left the dead animal in the road enrage people who have empathy with animals and wildlife. Many Americans have had such bad experiences with their fellow citizens that they regard their dogs and cats, and wildlife, as more intelligent and noble life forms than humans. Wild animals can be dangerous, but they are not evil.

Americans with empathy for animals are horrified by the television program that depicts hunters killing beautiful animals and the joy hunters experience in “harvesting” their prey. Many believe that a person who enjoys killing a deer because he has a marvelous rack of antlers might enjoy killing a person.

This is not a screed against hunters. There are many families with the tradition of bringing in the venison once or twice a year. With the near extermination by man of deer predators, deer are so abundant in many localities as to have become a nuisance and a danger to motorists. Nevertheless, the defense of gun rights has little to gain from TV programs depicting the fun of killing Bambi’s mother.

In the United States, shooting is a hand-eye coordination sport. It is likely that 99 percent of all ammunition is fired at paper targets, metal silhouettes or clay and plastic discs. It is a sport for amateur physicists who are interested in ballistics and who experiment with different combinations of powder and bullet seeking the most accuracy for their rifle or pistol. Few of these shooters hunt, as their interest in shooting is unrelated to killing.

Shooting is a sport that offers comradeship and competition in which even old people can participate, people who do not or cannot play golf or tennis or bowl. There is a vast variety of events, from black powder muskets to antique military and frontier weapons to distance shooting.

Sports shooters punching holes in paper targets comprise the vast majority of active gun owners. They are a threat to no one. Accidents are extremely rare at gun clubs. A large network of small businesses provide the parts and supplies necessary for shooting. There is no reason to strip gun owners of their hobby and possessions and family businesses of their livelihood, as has been done in Great Britain and as the gun control lobby intends to do in the United States.

The NRA is correct to insist that “when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.” We have known this since the Sullivan Act.

 GOOD NEWS, THE FOLLOWING HAS BEEN KILLED (FOR NOW !)

 

 

Micro-Stamping Bill Heads to Senate Floor!

Please Contact Your State Senator Today!

 

Senate Bill 6005 passed the Senate Codes Committee today, Tuesday, June 8 and could be brought up on the Senate Floor as early as Thursday.  It’s companion in the Assembly, Assembly Bill 6468C, has already passed.

Both A6468C and S6005 require that semiautomatic pistols manufactured or delivered to any licensed dealer in the state of New York be capable of micro-stamping ammunition and establish fines for violations of this requirement.

Micro-stamping is an unproven technology that would require unique identifying information from the firearm, including the make, model, and serial number to be etched into the firing pin and breech face in such a manner that those identifiers are imprinted on the cartridge case upon firing.  The technology can easily be defeated with common household tools, has no public safety value, and adds substantially to the cost of the firearm.  If passed, the availability of semi-automatic handguns in New York could be in jeopardy, as manufacturers simply may choose not to build or sell firearms for purchase in the state. In fact, this bill would likely create a de facto ban on new semi-automatic handguns.

If allowed to become law, this bill will serve as a ban on all new semiautomatic handguns in the Empire State!  It is imperative that you contact members of the New York State Senate and respectfully ask that they protect our Second Amendment rights by opposing S6005.Your State Senator can be contacted through the Senate switchboard at (518) 455-2800.  To find your State Senator, please click here
