What An Idea

I've been trying to find a United Nations report that is mentioned in this article that says. "At its July meeting on gun running, the United Nations released a report estimating that 500,000 people have died over the past decade from injuries caused by small weapons or guns used in crimes or military attacks. Children are frequent victims, the UN report said." So far I haven't been able to find a copy of the report. I'd like to see if it compares the number of people that were killed in parts of the world that have strict gun control laws (where law abiding citizens are unarmed but the criminals aren't) to places where the gun laws are "too lax?" The article also mentions a bill that I plan on looking into, S. 1488, The Second Amendment Protection Act Of 2005. "Under the Vitter bill, the United States would be barred from providing financing to the United Nations unless the president of the United States certifies that the United Nations "has not taken action to restrict, attempt to restrict, or otherwise adversely infringed upon the rights of individuals in the United States to possess a firearm or ammunition...". Cut off funding to an organization that would infringe upon our rights, what an idea. So far I like it.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

I wonder if this amendment would make it imposible for the president and congress to violate the second amendment but of course they would violate that also.

I think pulling out of the U.N. is a great idea it is nothing more than a waste of tax payer money. Maybe the new ambasador will get us kicked out.

I did find this http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,165893,00.html I'm not sure if it is what Aubreyj is talking about. Makes one wonder which side the U.N. is taking on the war on terrorism.

Jake, I don't know that the Second Amendment will ever be safe from the President or Congress

God Bless America, God Save The Republic
