    I don't understand how so many conservatives believe the UN is both A) powerless and therefore useless and B) a serious threat to their freedom at the same time. Its either one or the other guys.
    I've read up enough on the U.N. anti gun stances over the years, and it isn't a far stretch to think they would try to backend gun rights into extinction using a treaty.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I have a hunch that if the NRA were a unionized organization, you might take them seriously.
    I stated this event makes a great fund raising platform for them.

    LMR-
    This has been debunked long ago. The UN's treaty goes into pretty good detail that it doesn't override any nation's internal laws. The USofA, nor any other country has to abandon it's current fire arms laws, what is the bone of contention is it will severely limit the arms sales, covert and with taxpayer funding to third world petty tyrants, who FYI seem to be excellent customers of the former arsenal of democracy.

    Time to drop the BS 'defend our nation from the New World Oder blue helmets' crap. If all it takes is a few blue hats to gut our Constitution then all the loud mouths online spouting their 'blood of tyrants' stuff are all hat and no cattle.

    Steady in the ranks, wait on it, don't poop yourself until you see the whites of their eyes....

    For years I supported the NRA. Got the magazine. Had the little sticker on the camper of my truck.

    I don't seem to remember them, back then, trying to scare me into oblivion and make me shake in my little spaceboots because the "government was coming for my guns."

    Why are they resorting to that type of paranoia nonsense now? Does it generate more revenue.

    Nobody's coming for anybody's guns. Ain't nobody even talking about coming for my guns but the tinfoil hat paranoid people.

    Really?!?

    Get a grip.

    Americans and their guns are inseparable. Everybody knows that.

    You can all come out now. The wicked witch is dead.

    Sheeeesh....
