It's no longer a secret the United Nations wants to establish
some kind of global tax scheme and impose global gun control.
If the United Nations can do both at the same time, it will.
To make certain the United Nations has a clear understanding of
the position of the United States, Congressman Ron Paul, along
with ten other congressmen, introduced H.R. 3125 - The Right to
Keep and Bear Arms Act of 2003.
According to H.R. 3125, Congress finds that:
1. over the past decade, the United Nations has demonstrated a
consistent animus to the Second Amendment to the United States
Constitution and to the right to keep and bear arms;
2. in June 2003, the United Nations sponsored a "Week of Action
Against Small Arms";
3. French President Jacques Chirac and the socialist president
of Brazil Luiz Lula da Silva both advocate the imposition of a
United Nations' tax on firearms for various utopian purposes;
4. two million largely unarmed people are killed yearly by
oppressive genocidal governments throughout the world; and
5. ironically, at the same time the United Nations was working
to prohibit Americans from exercising their Second Amendment
rights to defend themselves, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and
Firearms was called to investigate the illegal possession of
submachine guns by bodyguards to Secretary General of the United
Nations Kofi Annan.
H.R. 3125 would prohibit U.S. taxpayer dollars from being used
to support or promote any United Nations' actions that could in
any way infringe on the Second Amendment. The legislation also
expresses the sense of Congress that proposals to tax, or
otherwise limit, the right to keep and bear arms are
"reprehensible and deserving of condemnation."
H.R. 3125 was introduced on September 17, 2003 with ten original
cosponsors which is an impressive number to start. But let's
make clear to the United Nations, France, China and to any other
country what the position of the United States is. Urge your U.S.
representative to defend America's Second Amendment by
cosponsoring H.R. 3125. To send your message, go to
