Global disarmament coming

While Democrats seek to disarm America’s citizens, the United Nations wants to implement civilian disarmament globally.

This month, the U.N. will debate, once more, their proposed “international arms control treaty,” which they claim will fight “terrorism,” “insurgency” and “international crime syndicates.” Ultimately, the U.N. small arms treaty will register, ban and confiscate firearms owned by private citizens worldwide.

The petty dictators and one-world socialists who control the U.N. are outraged that Americans have a right to keep and bear arms. Not surprisingly, so are the Democrats, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton!

The Bush administration told the U.N. that its small arms treaty was an attack on American sovereignty and the Second Amendment. Predictably, the socialist Obama administration is embracing this latest U.N. tyranny and will ask the U.S. Senate, controlled by Democrats, to ratify it.

There’s a name for nations where only the police and military have guns. They’re called police states.
