UNCRC Linked to Anti-Second Amendment Rights

I got an article from ParentalRights.org that outlines how they believe that the UNCRC (UN Convention on the Rights of the Child) may also lead to diminished gun ownership rights.

While I agree that children should not be used as soldiers (and the US already has laws stating that you must be 18 to join the armed forces), gun control is a dangerous thing. Restriction and confiscation of guns has proceeded genocide in various countries all over the world and throughout history. If you don't believe me, I recommend that you watch the movie Innocents Betrayed. In it they claim that 170,000,000 people have been killed by their own governments in the 20th century. According to UNICEF (the official UN agency charged with the worldwide advancement of children’s rights), world-wide deaths from fire arms ownership is hundreds of thousands. Lets say it is 400,000. (If it was more, I assume they would say half a million or almost a million.) In 10 years that would equal 4,000,000. Now which one seems the bigger problem. Not being able to defend yourself and your family (17 million in one decade) or firearms deaths (4 million in one decade).

In the official UNICEF brochure, this is how we should deal with firearms:

Efforts must be ongoing to overcome the destructive messages that small arms and light weapons are essential instruments for survival and protection in daily life. (Read who needs fire arms to protect themselves from criminals or the government.)

Governments must support communities in eliminating the insecurity, fear and instability that often lead people to acquire and keep guns. (Read never rely on yourself or you God. Only rely on the government. Trust the government to keep you safe from criminals. Trust the government to not get power hungry and decide that YOU are the criminal.)

Regulations are needed to ensure that small arms and light weapons are not easy to acquire and are never accessible to children. (Read only governments should have weapons never individuals and certainly never in homes.)

The UN and all of its branches are a dangerous thing. If I had my way, the US would get out of the UN. As I don't see this happening any time soon, I must support the Parental Rights Amendment.

Truly scary. I din't realize this aspect of it until the Parental Rights mailing. Let's keep trying to get the word out.

BTW - email me with shipping info for the Parental Rights DVD from my blog. Wasn't much response, sad to say, but I'll have them send it to you
