"The United States government is denying the request of law-abiding citizens to buy back military surplus M14s citing international agreements that would make such a program, 'problematic.' "

"We can only presume that the referred agreement was made during the United Nations Conference on the Illicit Trade of Small Arms and Light Weapons in All its Aspects in July 2001." ...

"Needless to say, this type of agreement with the United Nations or other foreign entity poses a serious threat to the citizens and the sovereignty of the United States of America. As citizens we have the God-given right to keep and bear arms to defend ourselves and to preserve this nation in the event of a foreign governmental installation (i.e., tyranny). These rights are documented and recognized in our Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights."

FULL STORY BELOW:

A Chinese police officer named a national hero for relentless campaigns against drug trafficking gangs faces prosecution for smuggling heroin, the official Xinhua news agency said Tuesday.
Three years ago, Zhou Kun, head of an anti-drug brigade in the southwestern province of Guizhou, was an "anti-drug hero" who had captured more than 1,000 drug smugglers and more than 50 kg (110 pounds) of narcotics, it said.

"In 2000, he was rewarded the title of 'National Advanced Worker' for his remarkable contributions in the nationwide fight against drug trafficking."

But in November railway police caught two members of a trafficking ring on a train in the neighboring province of Kunming -- and they said they were working for Zhou.

Zhou was arrested in January and he confessed to drug smuggling narcotics with other traffickers on repeated occasions, Xinhua reported.

Outrage: Why America’s Gun Laws Need to Change

"It is not surprising in a society with judges like Weinstein – who coddle killers while demonizing gunmakers for crimes over which they had no control – and prosecutors who go after people like Dixon and Falquez, that a good and decent man like Robert Byland could be shot dead on Father’s Day, in broad daylight on a corner near his home."

"All of this has to do with firearms and the irrational effort to prevent honest citizens from owning, carrying and – if the need arises – using them, not only for self-defense but, in the broader sense, the common good. When a criminal loses, the rest of us win. It is an outrage that career criminals often get a free ride through turnstile courts while bungling prosecutors and judges hound decent citizens whose only crime is that they did not obtain the government’s permission to exercise a Constitutional right."
