Granny Get Your Gun!

When you hear the word treaty you would normally assume that two or more countries in conflict with each other had reached an accord to end the conflict. Take the proposed “small arms treaty” from the U.N. There is no doubt that the rights and freedoms that our forefathers secured for us, scare many of the world “leaders”(for lack of better word).

Most of the “civilized” nations in this world have banned private ownership- or have at least passed stringent laws strongly restricting the private ownership of firearms. Americans have had their rights paid for with over 200 years of freedom loving patriots giving life and limbs for our freedoms and rights. We have fought tooth and nail and paid that same high price to give that same gift to many others around the globe.

“Concentrated power has always been the enemy of liberty.”-Ronald Reagan

With many of the world’s citizens allowing their politicians to pass laws prohibiting or restricting the private ownership of firearms they have given up their last line of defense against tyranny. The proposed “treaty “, if passed would most likely impose harsh restriction on the buying and selling of firearms and create a national firearm registry. The first steps leading to the confiscation of privately owned guns, leaving the citizen at the mercy of the criminal and the government.

It has been proven time and again that when the citizen is disarmed, the crime rate skyrockets. The criminals already reject following the law, so the government just makes it easier for them. When a politician starts out at the state or local level most all will state that they want to lower the crime rate. This cannot be accomplished by disarming the law abiding citizen, from any government level.

Now is the time to raise our voices and be heard. Let our senators and representatives know that we will not tolerate them signing away our freedoms and rights under the guise of a “treaty”.

Keep an eye on where this goes through the NRA-ILA.

  1. Jon says:

    Under Obama rights of gun owners have increased.

    • R. Mitchell says:

      Jon,

      “Under Obama” and “as a result of Obama’s pro-gun actions” are two very different things. It is because of his administration’s publicly anti-gun policies and actions that gun owners have become activists.

      That is why gun rights have increased “under Obama”.

  2. AnneS says:

    Many people who are against private gun ownership have never had a firearm, shot one, gone hunting, don’t go against their government, trust their government, think that their government can make no mistakes, and mostly, indeed, don’t want to rock any boats. These are the people who are afraid to stand on the front line, would be the first to boohoo if their government would take away their rights, and who would be the first to brown-nose their government to selfishly keep themselves safe with no thought for the rest of the population. They are the ones who do not have vision of the future, and only live for today.

    Obama is not the first President to threaten to do this, though the Homeland Security Bureau could become like the Gestapo, who would and are insidiously working into the weave of our nation and weakening the Rights of the People.

    In some ways, the Republican candidate for Pres and his snot nose kindergarten boy, Paul Ryan, threaten us more than Obama does. Both want to take away the freedom of the masses, and I don’t think anyone can really argue with it. If you can ……feel free to do so.
