Although there’s no reason to consider the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty a threat to U.S. citizens’ gun rights—yet—the U.N. is certainly no friend to armed self-defense. Professing peace and promoting negotiation, U.N. politicians pave the road to hell by masking the simple reality of politics in “developing” countries: those who have the guns make the rules. Those who don’t are tortured, raped and killed. As conflicts escalate or deescalate, the U.N invariably call for disarming militias, tribes, rebels, insurgents—whatever you want to call them—-while urging armed-to-the-teeth despots and dictators to exercise “restraint.” In this bone-headed bombast the media is complicit . . .
If we can work on taking guns out of the equation, or address the issue of guns and their use, we can begin to help bring peace to the many post-conflict zones around the world where peace has yet to arrive.
CNN’s copy and headline [above] illustrate the news org’s bias against firearms-based security. I mean really, is there any other kind?
