Rep. Reibolt (R-Mo.): UN threatening 2nd Amendment
For the past decade international anti gun groups have attempted to impose registration requirements, ban gun sales, track ammunition purchases, and create a United Nations gun control bureaucracy. This past Monday, July 2, the United Nations General Assembly quietly convened their conference on the Arms Trade Treaty. This conference, as well as the United Nations itself, poses two of the most serious threats to American gun owners and their constitutional Second Amendment rights. The National Rifle Association (NRA) has worked hard and tirelessly to support these rights, and up to this point the NRA has been the sole defender of them. Preparations for the Conference of 2012 have been under way since 2006, and the purpose of this conference is to put the finishing touches on the language of the International Arms Trade Treaty. It could be ready for international ratification by as early as late summer.
