    They've been trying that garbage for quite a while, now. It took a lot of work for the NRA to get status as an NGO; it's the only NGO to speak up for our side of the issue. Umpteen gazillion NGOs are against us.

    Hats off to Bob Barr and Bolton. For Kofi and his world domination clan, the guillotine.

    All the major blocks that constitute global governance are in position. Just a few remain to be place. The two biggies are control of legal small arms trade and UN direct taxes. The US is standing up and saying "No" but you can bet President Hillary <shudder> will reverse Bush's directives. It is no coincidence both initiatives are linked. Direct taxation will permit the fielding of an autonomous UN army and control of legal firearms will reduce the amount of target practice on the nice blue helmets.

    Glad Bob Barr is available for the gig.

    Direct Taxes and civilian disarmament by foriegn governments...

    As I recall, we threw a grand little war over that in 1776, and I'm sure we'll have plenty of help if we need to again.

    No armed UN soldier will ever stand in a position of authority on US soil unmolested.

    Not within 300 meters of me, anyway.

    THE NEW WORLD DISORDER
    U.N. seeking global gun control?
    Conference moving toward plan that would regulate U.S. arms

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A U.N. group is working toward establishment of an international system to register and regulate civilian possession of firearms, according to a former congressman.

    The ultimate aim of many members of the conference on small arms is to outlaw personal ownership of guns altogether, said Georgia Republican Bob Barr in an interview yesterday on the newly syndicated WorldNetDaily Report with Joseph Farah.


    Bob Barr

    Barr was an official representative of the U.S. State Department's delegation at the conference's week-long session last week. It is known officially as the first Biennial Meeting of States on the Implementation of the Program of Action on Small Arms and Light Weapons in All Its Aspects.

    At the beginning of the session, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan urged members to redouble efforts to curb small arms and light weapons.

    "The United Nations remains firmly committed to prevent, combat and eradicate the illicit trade of small arms and light weapons in all its aspects," he said.

    The group will meet again in 2005, followed by a review conference scheduled for 2006.

    If not for the U.S. State Department and organizations such as the National Rifle Association, "this locomotive would have had a lot more steam," Barr said.

    Barr commended U.S. Undersecretary of State John Bolton for focusing the U.N.'s attention on international trafficking of illicit arms and not on U.S. ownership of arms.

    "He has done an outstanding job of monitoring this and standing up to it in a way the State Department frequently does not do," Barr said.

    However, Barr warned that many member nations, including the UK, Netherlands and India, want to set up a legally binding protocol requiring all U.N. countries to start registration of firearms.

    The potential implications of that are enormous, he said, noting it is a small step toward the ultimate nightmare of American gun owners – "the U.N. knocking on our door to get our firearms."

    "If we were to allow in any way, shape or form the U.N. to begin the process of registering and regulating fire arms – ultimately their goal of doing away with personal firearms – we would have dealt a blow to our sovereignty," he said.

    Barr called on citizens to urge their representatives to stay on top of the issue and ensure the U.S. is not faced with a legally-binding document that would commit the country to some form of firearms registration and regulation by the U.N. or any outside authority.

    "The presence of several anti-gun groups at this and other related conferences underscores the threat they pose to the constitutional rights of American citizens if we fail to closely monitor their activities," Barr said in a statement. "In fact, many of these groups receive substantial funding from anti-firearms governments to move their agenda."

    During the conference, the Geneva-based Small Arms Survey released its findings for 2002, which paid special attention to U.S. gun ownership.

    "By any measure the United States is the most armed country in the world," the report said. "With roughly 83 to 96 guns per 100 people, the United States is approaching a statistical level of one gun per person."

    The un can't get global power if there are people still out there with guns. They are the demorats democrap, they not only believe they are owed power but will kill anyone who goes against them. They can't take over if people have the power to stop them from doing so.

    It's probably time to get out of the UN.

    I've merged two threads on the same subject, using the earlier thread's title for the combined result.

    If they've got plans to come on over and tell us what to do, I'd wish they'd hurry up and come on. Those dang paper targets get boring to shoot at after awhile. Those delivery room blue helmets scurrying for cover would be much more fun and challenging.

    mmm. What firearms do UN "peacekeepers" use, anyway? HK stuff? Somehow I don't see them walking around with 1911s.

    Gentlemen:

    Interesting though the thoughts might be, I doubt very much that the U.S. will ever pull out of the U.N., at least not within the forseeable future.

    As for the U.N. dictating to this country, regarding our constitutional rights, I doubt that too, unless our government complete abdicates it's responsibilities, which might well lead to armed conflict.

    Savor the irony

    The worst dictators in the world trying to regulate our firearms in the name of peace.

    But let them pass all the edicts they want. They mean nothing unless we sign a treaty and it's ratified.

    We wouldn't have to sign it, someone like Hillary would be obliged to do it on our behalf.

    Who hosts the U.N.? America
    Who pays the lions share of its bills? America
    Whose troops do most of the killing and dying when the U.N. gets involved? America
    Who made up the bulk of U.N. troops in Korea? America.

    The U.N. has peacekeepers, from a myriad of other countries, all over the place and they are militarily as useful as teats on a bull! Libya and Cuba are main players on the human rights commission, some joke, eh?

    Our right to bear arms will be won or lost right here on the homefront! Without the Americans there is no U.N.!
