NRA warns of U.N. gun control
U.S. participating in upcoming small-arms conference JULY 2-27 2012 (see below)

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.”
LaPierre sees the U.N. as a club of governments, some of which want to “strip opposition forces of the means to challenge their authority.”
Noting that during the 20th century, governments murdered 169 million people in various parts of the world, the NRA leader says individual gun ownership is the “ultimate protection against tyranny.”
Although an effort by the U.N. to control Americans’ guns seems far-fetched and improbable to some, as WorldNetDaily has reported in a major investigation, that plan has its roots in the early 1960s with a 20-page State Department pamphlet titled “Freedom From War: The United States Program for General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World.”
LaPierre, in his book “The Global War on Your Guns: Inside the UN Plan to Destroy the Bill of Rights,” claims a 1997 land-mine treaty molded the U.N.’s new anti-gun strategy; that the U.N. funnels Americans’ tax dollars to anti-gun member nations; that U.S. gun-control advocates are investing in the U.N.’s activities; and that even the most extreme U.N. gun laws can be enforced on Americans, without the benefit of a new treaty.
As WorldNetDaily reported, actor Michael Douglas – who for many years has been designated by the United Nations as a “U.N. peace messenger” – is backing the conference.
The U.S. has provided more than $27 million to help various nations destroy surplus stockpiles of small arms and light weapons and offers regular technical assistance, according to the State Department.
A June 9 State Department fact sheet says, “Given the close links between terrorism, organized crime and drug trafficking, the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons has the potential to affect any country in the world at any time.”
The State Department urges “focused efforts to identify and curb the sources and methods of the illicit trade via robust export controls, law enforcement measures, and efforts to expeditiously destroy excess stocks and safeguard legitimate stocks from theft or illegal transfer.”
UN firearms conference scheduled
United Nations Examiner
Called the UN Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty, delegates in New York will try to reach agreement on what the UN calls "the most important initiative ever regarding conventional arms regulation within the United Nations. A robust arms trade treaty can make a difference for millions of people confronted with insecurity, deprivation and fear."
A 2011 UN General Assembly resolution marked for limited distribution described the goal of the conference to be "General and complete disarmament: towards an arms trade treaty: establishing common international standards for the import, export and transfer of conventional arms."
A 2010 resolution said the UN said it supports:
- the right of all States to manufacture, import, export, transfer and retain conventional arms for self-defense and security needs and in order to participate in peace support operations; and
- the right of States to regulate internal transfers of arms and national ownership, including through national constitutional protections on private ownership, exclusively within their territory.
UN officials deny they are targeting private ownership of firearms.
"The UN is not pursuing a global treaty to ban gun ownership by civilians," the UN said. "Member States are committed to tightening controls over the international import, export and transfers of conventional arms, because without such controls it is easier for weapons to be diverted from the legal trade into the illegal market, and into the hands of terrorists, drug traffickers and criminal cartels."
