We were poking around on the United Nations website
just to see what we could find, in black and white, about the United Nation's
position on disarming U.S. citizens. We thought you would be interested in the attached
article (.pdf file) which came from their Disarmament Forum publication.
It will certainly come as no surprise that the sentiment of the article we
have attached is quite hostile to our Second Amendment Freedoms. Please
allow us to give you an example of how the U.N. views the United States and its
freedoms (here is a quote from the attachment):
"Much is made at the moment of the need to combat entrenched gun
cultures. The need to reverse fixed beliefs in the right, if not the duty, to
bear arms is an enormous task. This is not just the case in
"frontier" states such as the United States and South Africa."
~~ "Breaking Out of the Arms Control Framework" by Chris Smith
The article which we have attached also claims that,
"It was the westward expansion in the United States which forged the
culture of gun ownership in areas where the state could not be effective
because expansion had occurred so quickly."
Obviously, the writer of this article has never heard of the U.S.
Constitution or the Bill of Rights.
The article also claims that "solutions" to the "problem"
include the following:
"the ability of the security forces to protect extant stocks of
weapons and control corruption; the ability to control trafficking; tackling
the perceived need on the part of individuals to bear arms; and the ability to
control organized crime and opportunistic criminality, warlords and
"...there is a need to develop norms and procedures for dealing with
sub-state actors, which might range from empowering and mobilizing civil
society to address existing gun cultures to undertaking complex negotiations
with warlords to seek ways of dealing with the oligopolization of force and
Don't you just love how they refer to "civil society" as opposed to
us "uncivilized" gun owners? Har de har har har.
If you'd like to check out more in the same vein straight from the horse's
mouth, we would recommend following this link:
The above link is concerned with a U.N. conference which is scheduled to take
place in New York in July of 2001. We thought it would behoove KABA to have this
information, if you do not already have it.
As free citizens, not subjects or serfs, we would like to recommend that KABA
take a strong position in support of U.S. withdrawal from the United Nations and
expulsion of the United Nations from our sovereign soil.
Sincerely and keep up the good fight,
