Ron Paul: The Worldwide Gun Control Movement
Submitted by: News Director

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"The United Nations is holding a conference beginning this week in New York that ironically coincides with our national 4th of July holiday. It’s ironic because those attending the conference want to do away with one of our most fundamental constitutional freedoms—the right to bear arms."

"The stated goal of the conference is to eliminate trading in small arms, but the real goal is to advance a worldwide gun control movement that ultimately supercedes national laws, including our own 2nd Amendment. Many UN observers believe the conference will set the stage in coming years for an international gun control treaty."

"Another part that was particularly interesting though, at least to me, is a state making the stand for the Law of the Land - Our Constitution, and the sovereignty of it. It would be nice if we had quite a few more like that today, wouldn't it? (Not to mention an honorable Federal government, in ALL its branches). What do you suppose has happened to honor? I have been seeking it earnestly and can say that it is very difficult to find these days...."

"State Sen. Dean Martin wanted us to imagine the worst of scenarios: A serious disaster in the Valley has left gangs of thugs roaming the streets unchecked. ..."

"This was the Phoenix Republican's justification for a proposal to deny the governor any unilateral control over privately held firearms and ammunition during a state of emergency. ...lawmakers demurred after the National Rifle Association launched a surprise last-minute attack."

"We understand the desire to protect our fundamental rights under the Second Amendment and the state constitution. But HCR2010 was an overreaction to what happened in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. ..."

"Gov. Brian Schweitzer won't say exactly how many guns he owns, other than it's 'more than I need, but less than I want.'"

"An unabashed shooter, hunter and gun-fancier in a state deeply in touch with its Old West heritage, Schweitzer is a member of the National Rifle Association and was happy to receive the NRA's endorsement for governor in 2004."

"He is also a Democrat."

"Like many Democrats, especially those beyond the nation's big cities and urban coasts, Schweitzer doesn't see gun ownership as a partisan issue."

"In the life-is-cheap world of violent street gangs, guns are maybe a little harder to get than dope. But not by much."

"Stolen from homes. Taken from a parent. Bartered for drugs. Bought by a friend or relative."

"'The problem is they get them - no matter how, they get them,' said Wes McBride, a retired Los Angeles County sheriff's sergeant and president of the California Gang Investigators Association."
 

CO: Speakout: Despotic city, courts fret gun owners

"The city of Denver has long criminalized what has been legal elsewhere in Colorado, namely the ownership, use and transportation of firearms. ..." ...

"Denver has for years claimed that, as a home rule city, they are free to treat gun owners anyway they want, including nonresidents who happen to be in Denver. Our state constitution never intended to create a city-state with home rule or to use home rule as a means to cancel other constitutional rights."

"So, after the legislature in 2003 handed Denver a loss on this issue and affirmed our constitutional rights to possess, use and transport firearms, Denver turned to the courts to achieve its desires. Denver lost on some of these issues when Judge Joe Meyer ruled that Denver must comply with the new state law regarding concealed carry and firearms in vehicles and more. Denver won when Meyer ruled that Denver can continue to enforce a slew of laws that only strike fear and confusion in the minds of gun owners. These include bans on openly carrying guns, and on the sale of so-called Saturday-night specials and assault weapons. Denver also won on its requirement for safe storage of guns."

"I was not satisfied that gun owners' interests would be properly represented when Denver originally filed suit against the state and governor, so I filed a motion to intervene in this case but was denied by Meyer. I then filed a separate suit against Denver. In my case, I forced Denver to produce evidence to support my claim that the constitution and legislative intent of preventing Denver from abusing gun owners' legal and constitutional rights was proper."

"Already a long-shot, Tom Lingenfelter's independent campaign for Pennsylvania lieutenant governor seriously misfired last week."

"Running under the aegis of PACleanSweep, the anti-incumbent group formed after the state legislature's middle-of-the-night pay raise, Lingenfelter announced he was putting a genuine Buffalo Bill-owned revolver up for auction to raise money for a full-time campaign."

"Lingenfelter, of Doylestown, an antiques dealer, said in a pre-auction statement the Colt Model 1849 .31-caliber weapon was 'the very revolver carried and used by young Buffalo Bill Cody as he fought off armed Sioux Indians and outlaws as he carried the U.S. Mail for the legendary Pony Express in 1860 ... It would be quite fitting if this 'gun that made the West' ends up helping to bring freedom back to Pennsylvanians nearly 150 years later.'"

"Because Senator Giannetti killed a bill in the Maryland Senate in 2004 and kept it from being sent to Governor Bob Ehrlich, the bill has never passed, and military-style semiautomatic assault rifles like the weapons used by the bank robbery gang and the Washington D.C. area snipers are still legal in Maryland."

"The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, based in Washington D.C., believes Senator Giannetti should not be re- elected."

"When Yvonne Joseph's father died in 1993, people said she and her mother wouldn't be able to take over his business."

"Her father, Carl, had started Classic Arms in a basement in 1965. Over the years, it had grown to be a respected gun store and one of the region's few black powder specialty shops."

"It wasn't the financial state of the store on Lake Lansing Road in Lansing that had people doubting Yvonne Joseph. Some thought she and her mother, Luba, couldn't run the store because they were women."

"But Joseph thrives on challenges like that."

"While we were sleeping, our right to maintain privacy in the sanctity of our own homes has become the latest victim in the continuing onslaught against our constitutional liberties. The watering down of the most cherished document of our American heritage, The Bill of Rights, may become the legacy of the Supreme Court under Chief Justice John Roberts, as our ability to be free from unwanted government intrusion is diluted. ..."

"In a speech to the conference Monday, Annan told delegates that some progress had been made in the five years since states promised to do more to curb the illicit trade of small arms. Yet they have fallen short in updating their laws or collecting and destroying illegal weapons."

"You can walk into your local sporting-goods store and buy a 50-round box of 9mm ammunition for about $6, or 12 cents a bullet."

"The cost of that bullet increases exponentially on the streets of Greater Cincinnati if it rips through the gut or the spleen or the spine of a victim of a gun crime."

"Yet that scenario will be repeated more than 370 times this year if the city continues on its projected record-breaking pace of shootings and homicides in 2006."

"The National Rifle Association lobby is at it again. The latest bill it is trying to push through the Republican Congress has some truly horrible provisions." ...

"It seems the NRA, which already opposes restricting machine-gun ownership, maybe will next propose that citizens should be able to buy their own howitzers. The NRA has bought Congress with its huge donations and is selling out law enforcement."

"Air Canada's decision to charge passengers a new fee for carrying firearms is not going over well with Newfoundland and Labrador's tourism and outfitting industries."

"Passengers flying with Air Canada now have to pay an extra $50 each way if they are travelling with firearms. The handling fee went into effect on June 5 for tickets purchased on or after April 14."

"Air Canada says the surcharge will cover the cost of making sure firearms are declared, unloaded and secured in a case that cannot be easily broken in to during transport."

"Their fears stem largely from a National Rifle Association fundraising campaign backed by Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, who says on an NRA Web site that those at the conference plan July 4 'to finalize a U.N. treaty that would strip all citizens of all nations of their right to self-protection, and strip you of your rights.'"

John Lott: No Safety Lock: The U.N. shouldn’t be so sure gun-control works.

"The United Nations’ conference on small arms, which starts today, has an admirable enough goal: to save lives. Some conference attendees claim that guns used in armed conflicts cause 300,000 deaths world-wide every year. The 'international community’s' solution? Prevent rebels from getting guns with rules that include a registry of all small arms to enable tracing them and to ensure that weapons sales can be limited to governments."

"That is an understandable 'solution' for governments that don’t trust their citizens. But it also represents a dangerous disregard for their citizens’ safety and freedom."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
"Secrecy is the keystone of all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy ... censorship. When any government, or any church, for that matter, undertakes to say to it's subjects, 'This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know,' the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything. You cannot conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him." --Robert A. Heinlein, "Revolt in 2100" (Pg. 68-69, Baen Books paperback edition, 1999 printing)
