Globalists Want Your Gun

Saturday, 19 May 2001 12:00 AM

"Behind closed doors around the world,” declared NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, these powerful groups "have been meeting for years under the auspices of the United Nations to control ownership of firearms.”

The pivotal date on this effort will be July 9 at the U.N.’s long-anticipated gun-control summit, "where they will propose banning civilian ownership of firearms worldwide,” LaPierre said in an address at the NRA's annual convention.

The plan, as LaPierre described it, is to "demonize your ownership of guns by declaring that you’ve got too much freedom, and that a global gun ban is the best global gun policy.”

At the start of the U.N. conference in July, governments in capitals around the world and anti-gun groups will celebrate "Small Arms Destruction Day” by tossing handguns, rifles, and other small arms into bonfires to kick off the summit.

The idea was hatched at a U.N. preparatory meeting April 2. Writing in the NRA’s house organ America’s First Freedoms, author James Bovard says the bonfire stunt could be "ominous” — just the opposite, he says, from the bonfires set by the sons of liberty in 1775 to signal their resistance to the abuses of the British king.

"Beginning this summer," LaPierre told the conventioneers, "if the U.N. has its way,” it will be global policy to force gun owners to "turn in certain guns, or become felons."

The U.N.’s problem, he added, is that it "draws no distinction between a missile launcher and your shotgun.”

LaPierre noted that citizens in countries such as Iraq, Russia, Iran, North Korea, China and Cuba were already disarmed. He added that the mainstream media would not ask just whose guns they are after because, like the U.N., "the media also think you have too much freedom.”
