UN “Human Rights” Report Attacks U.S. Gun Rights, Constitution

The United Nations pseudo-“human-rights” bureaucracy released another report attacking Americans’ self-defense rights, “Stand Your Ground” statutes passed at the state level, and the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment protection of the people's God-given right to keep and bear arms without government infringement. Agreeing with the Obama administration and the most extreme anti-Second Amendment members of Congress, the UN “Human Rights Committee” also claimed that the U.S. government needed to expand the unconstitutional background-check regime to include even private firearms sales. 

In a section of the report entitled “gun violence,” the UN “experts,” virtually all of whom come from governments that do not recognize the fundamental human right to possess weapons or of self-defense, claimed to be “concerned” about multiple issues surrounding U.S. gun laws. Despite “measures taken to reduce gun violence,” an advance of the UN document claims, “the Committee remains concerned about the continuing high numbers of gun-related deaths and injuries and the disparate impact of gun violence on minorities, women and children.” It was not immediately clear where the outfit obtained its data.

POLL:  Should the United States get out of the UN?

Especially troubling to the UN bureaucrats was the alleged “discriminatory effect of ‘Stand Your Ground Laws,’” according to the report. While the UN “experts” praised an “investigation” conducted by the federal “Commission on Civil Rights” into the popular state protections for self-defense rights, the unelected international committee claimed to be “concerned about the proliferation of such laws that are used to circumvent the limits of legitimate self-defence [sic] in violation of the State party’s duty to protect life.” The report marks at least the third time in recent months that self-styled UN authorities have used discredited arguments to attack American protections for fundamental human rights. 

“The State Party [the U.S. government] should take all necessary measures to abide by its obligation to effectively protect the right to life,” the report continues, despite the fact that studies show widespread gun ownership protects lives. “In particular, it should: (a) continue its efforts to effectively curb gun violence, including through the continued pursuit of legislation requiring background checks for all private firearm transfers … and (b) review Stand Your Ground Laws to remove far-reaching immunity and ensure strict adherence to the principles of necessity and proportionality when using deadly force in self-defence.”

In other words, the UN is now brazenly and openly pushing for radical and unconstitutional changes to both U.S. and state law. In particular, the report is calling for a massive expansion of the background-check regime — a plot that was so extreme it did not even make it through the Democrat-controlled U.S. Senate amid a full-blown assault on gun rights by the Obama administration. Critics have attacked the controversial idea from all angles, but especially troublesome are the constitutional implications, as well as well-founded suspicions that the Obama administration is unlawfully trying to use background checks to compile a national gun registry in defiance of federal law.

What they do in their countries is their business. If the UN doesn't like American laws or our Constitution move. They need to take their nose out of our affairs and realize that without us they wouldn't have anything.

hang on, one step at a time.

how about we deport all our violent criminals to their countries for twenty years and then get an update of their views on self defense, and stand your ground.

 I really like the way you think, but you need to go farther. We also need to ship back to them the trash they sent over here as illegals. Then we can all set around with our hands out for their money,  while we tell them what we want them to change about their country.

The UN has no business telling us what to do with our Constitution. They also do not represent the best interest of the American people. The second amendment was initiated by our forefathers to allow all of us protection against all tyranny, foreign and domestic. They knew Americans should always have the means to change their government if they considered it unacceptable. That's where it all started. Don't Tread On Me!!!!

Randall,

    I find your comments extremely well stated and on target.  We the People of this country are the final judges as to how we shall live.  We have spoken through our Constitution and Bill of Rights and we will fight to keep them.  No outside force or MARXIST REGIME inside the United States will take that from us..........NO ONE!

AMEN!

Got news for you, Patriots! Some of our elected officials in Washington, D.C. DO NOT HAVE OUR BEST INTERESTS AT HEARTThe proof of that is in their voting records and their actions!

We can either run the UN folks out of our country, or MAKE them STAY and charge them back rent for using our facilities (U.N. building), and keep an eye on them through the N.S.A.

Revoke "diplomatic immunity" for countries that are in the Middle East or sympathetic to Iran and other terrorist-sponsoring countries.

When Iran sends their new diplomat that was one of the Iranian terrorists that kidnapped those at our Embassy for 444 days- ARREST him for the terrorist-related kidnapping.

The UN is controlled by Satan and his demons.

The UN wants people to die, they just want to be the ones that kill them.

Again, UN Agenda 21 and a push for New World Order.  The UN needs to step back and shut their friggin mouth.  Don't they understand that you don't bite the hand that feeds you.  Them SOB's can get the hell off our shoreline, and go somewhere else.  Oh yeah, while they are getting on the plane, wave bye-bye to the money flow from America.  And you can do your own background check on that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

UN out of U.S., Nothing more needs to be said.

Or burn it to the ground!

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
