Gun Owners of America is advising shooters to contact their senators and ask them to oppose what GOA says will be a “framework for a global gun control regime” from the U.N. Small Arms Conference held in Mexico City on August 24.
According to a GOA email alert, White House officials who attended the Mexico U.N. conference will try to “establish and maintain a national control system, including a national control list” in agreements linked to the U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which President Obama has signed and is awaiting ratification by the Senate.
GOA asserted that these agreements will require signing nations to participate in “a global gun registration database.” “Over the past century, we have seen registration lists used as a prelude to gun confiscation in countries like Rwanda, Cambodia, and many more,” the GOA e-mail said. “Gun confiscation, in turn, led to horrific genocides in many of these countries — including Rwanda and Cambodia.” “Imagine dictators around the world—who can control the UN blue helmets (aka, the UN military force)—having your name on record as a gun owner. It’s preposterous! And this is why the senate must kill this toxic agreement,” the release concluded. GOA further urged gun owners to contact their senators and tell them to vote against any agreement reached at the Mexico U.N. conference.
