GunOwners of America – Senator Moran Seeks to Repudiate UN Small Arms Treaty

Although John Kerry signed the UN Small Arms Treaty, other senators who better understand our history, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Second Amendment, are seeking to repudiate the treaty. Senator Moran is now circulating a letter for that purpose. Senator Moran cites the extensive work that Gun Owners of America has done to reveal what the UN Small Arms Treaty is about. It is wrong, and it does undermine our sovereignty.

“[GOA’s Larry] Pratt also contends that the U.N. has a terrible track record in protecting human life. He said the horrors in Rwanda are a perfect example of why the U.N. has no business deciding who should and should not have access to guns.” — WorldNetDaily, June 2013

When you’re dealing with an adversary who hates the 2nd Amendment as much as Barack Obama, you have to fight attacks coming from several different directions.

We know we’ve thrown a lot at you lately. But there’s one other issue we’d like to bring to your attention.

As you know, the Obama administration recently signed the virulently anti-gun UN Arms Trade Treaty (ATT).

Although purporting to regulate international trade in arms, the treaty empowers anti-gun administrations (such as Barack Obama’s) to institute internal gun control, including gun bans, gun registration, and more. In fact, the drafters of the treaty made no secret of their goal of imposing measures such as microstamping on countries like the United States.

GOA’s legislative counsel has done a word-by-word analysis of the treaty, which can be seen here. If left unchecked, the treaty language will give rise a wide ranging series of gun control restrictions, as mentioned above. . . .

Denied a Chance: How gun control helped a stalker murder my husband by Nicole Goeser

Denied a Chance: How gun control helped a stalker murder my husband by Nicole Goeser is a powerful story of what’s wrong with gun control. Gun control laws in Tennessee forced her to leave her gun in the car, forced her to be defenseless, when a stalker walked in and shot her husband to death right in front of her.

Gun control creates ‘gun free zones’, the favorite place for criminals and psychos to hunt their defenseless victims.

While some who have been victims of criminals who use guns have chosen to advocate for more gun control, Nicole chose to become a 2nd Amendment activist, fighting for the right to keep and bear arms.

Her book, Denied a Chance: How gun control helped a stalker murder my husband , is available on Amazon.

U.S. Representative Johnson (Illinois) Continues Battle for Concealed Carry Rights for Law-abiding Citizens in Illinois

U.S. Representative Johnson (Illinois) Continues Battle for Concealed Carry Rights for Law-abiding Citizens in Illinois

Representative Johnson continues his battle for concealed carry rights. His words ring true for those who believe in the Second Amendment and its Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

WASHINGTON, DC – An attempt by U.S. Rep. Timothy V. Johnson and other Illinois Congressmen to guarantee Illinois citizens their constitutional right to carry concealed weapons was turned back by the House Rules Committee Monday night.

Rep. Johnson had offered to amend the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011 to extend to Illinois citizens the fundamental right to carry a concealed weapon under proper permitting limitations.

The amendment would have superseded the Illinois Legislature’s refusal to allow this right, which is enjoyed by citizens in all other states of the union. “The reciprocity bill has been introduced as an attempt, rightfully, to level the playing field in the execution of, and in the protection of, a citizen’s constitutional right to bear arms.

“The bill as introduced, however, did not address Illinois’ refusal to allow citizens this basic right. As most are aware, Illinois is the only state in the nation that does not allow conceal-carry

“I believe, as do many of my colleagues, that the right to bear arms is a right afforded all U.S. citizens in the U.S. Constitution. It is not a right that stops at a state line. It is not a right Illinois citizens should be asked to surrender. The Illinois legislature is under the grip of Chicago politicians. Their failure to grant to Illinois gun owners the same rights as the citizens of the other states necessitates that Congress exercise its powers under the 2nd and 14th amendment to allow Illinois citizens to safely carry firearms.”

Cosponsors of the amendment include Illinois Congressmen Bobby Schilling, Aaron Schock, Randy Hultgren and Adam Kinzinger. . . .
