UN Guns Treaty: 5 Quotes From Gun Rights Advocates During United Nations Debate

By    |   Thursday, 22 Jan 2015 08:33 PM

The UN guns treaty has been a hotly contested item between conservatives and liberals since its inception in April 2013. Many gun rights advocates have spoken out against the arms trade agreement, convinced the United Nations will interfere with their Second Amendment rights.

Here are five pro-gun quotes on the UN guns treaty:

URGENT: Do You Support Obama's Plans for Stricter Gun Control? Vote Now

1. “It's ironic that the Obama administration, whose Fast and Furious gunwalker program caused the deaths of over 300 Mexicans and two American border agents, purports to end such arms trade. Those who will be punished by this are law-abiding American gun owners, not those guilty of Fast and Furious-level crimes. But then again, perhaps that is the point?” – Dana Loesch, host of "The Dana Show" on TheBlaze Radio Network and "Dana" on TheBlaze TV

2. “Not only has the White House indicated support for the ATT; Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has vowed to push it through the Senate for ratification. Until now, the administration’s attempts to diminish Second Amendment rights to bear arms have been under the radar, except when botched, as in the Fast and Furious gun walking incident which can only be logically explained away as an effort to create a crisis that they would capitalize on to this end. We’ve seen all too many times how the Obama administration bypasses Congress and implements its agenda through executive orders. Don’t be surprised if the White House attempts to circumvent the Senate’s ratification of the treaty altogether and declares the ATT ‘in effect’ by executive order. After all, constitutional limitations on government, and our constitutional rights, are only valid if honored and upheld, something this administration fails at when it conflicts with their agenda.”
Richard Larsen, The Associated Press award-winning columnist

“They’ll [The UN] control guns, soda, banking, education, everything in your life. Drugs? No. That’s to keep you fat and sassy.”
Glenn Beck, host of "The Glenn Beck Program" on TheBlaze Radio Network and "Glenn Beck" on TheBlaze TV

4. “It may not come as surprising news to many of you that the United Nations doesn’t approve of our Second Amendment. Not one bit. And they very much hope to do something about it with help from some powerful American friends. Under the guise of a proposed global “Small Arms Treaty” premised to fight “terrorism,” “insurgency,” and “international crime syndicates,” you can be quite certain that an even more insidious threat is being targeted — our constitutional right for law-abiding citizens to own and bear arms.”
Larry Bell, Forbes contributor

5. “The effort [UN guns treaty] which is supported by the Obama administration has a very vocal opposition; those of us that believe in the right of Americans to keep and bear arms and those that don’t want the UN to have control over our lives ... this is aimed, no pun intended, at the United States of America and our Second Amendment.”
Sean Hannity, host of "The Sean Hannity Show" and "Hannity" on Fox News
