Powell Cozies Up to UN -- Will your gun rights survive?

Does the United Nations recognize and protect your right to keep and bear arms? Not hardly.

Yet Secretary of State Colin Powell expressed on February 14 the Bush Administration's "strong support of the work of the United Nations."

Does the Administration also support the U.N. sponsored programs to disarm civilians? There is absolutely no "Second Amendment" in the U.N. Charter or any of its resolutions -- civilian disarmament plans are underway.

Does the Administration also embrace the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights? That document protects almost none of the American fundamental rights while it directly fosters world socialism.

Does the Administration intend to give authority over U.S. land and the U.S. military forces over to U.N. control? Will the Administration go along with a world income tax?

Secretary of State Powell said: "We obviously are bound by U.N. resolutions and we're not trying to modify those." This statement, although given in the context of sanctions on Iraq, leaves little doubt: the Administration considers itself "obviously" bound by U.N. resolutions.

When the U.N. passes a resolution to register, tax or confiscate privately-owned firearms, will the Bush Administration be "obviously bound"? Will Attorney General Ashcroft "enforce the law of the land" -- and thus enforce the U.N. resolutions to destroy the Second Amendment?

To protect our Bill of Rights, we must continue to educate Americans about how the United Nations gravely threatens our freedom and our way of life. We cannot depend upon President Bush and Secretary Powell to save our rights -- we must remain actively watching and protesting the increasing power and influence of the United Nations.

What to do:

Get educated -- and help educate others. Get copies of "Gran'pa Jack #5: The United Nations is Killing Your Freedoms!" Order copies in volume to pass out to others. Gran'pa Jack exposes the truth about the U.N. anti-freedom programs, and particularly the elimination of the right to keep and bear arms. Get the facts -- and pass the word! Click on:
