Gun Rights Advancing Both Nationally and in the States

Washington, DC -(Ammoland.com)- There is great news in the gun rights community today.
The New Hampshire Governor signed a GOA-backed permitless carry bill into law today, allowing the Granite State to become the 13th member of the Constitutional Carry Club.
Gun Owners of America will provide you more information on this, and other recent gun-related victories, later in the week.
Moving to the Congress, there are efforts underway to prevent the UN from continuing its crusade to destroy the Second Amendment.
As you know, a good percent of UN member nations consist of genocidal totalitarian regimes. And they certainly don’t want anyone other than government butchers to have access to firearms.
Just within the last eight years, the UN has tried to saddle us with the anti-gun Small Arms Treaty and the anti-gun Arms Trade Treaty — or ATT.
The ATT, in particular, would REQUIRE the U.S. to establish a national firearms registry.
In addition, it would authorize an anti-gun president to implement massive gun and ammo bans by executive fiat.
Thus, under the ATT, if a Democrat were to ever again seize control of the White House, he could use executive orders to illegally ban all handguns or all semi-autos or all AR-15 ammo.
Suffice it to say that it’s well past time that we cut off the spigot on the anti-gun crazies in the UN.
H.R. 249, introduced on January 4 by Congressman Brian Babin (R-TX), would do just that.
The provisions of H.R. 249 are simple: The bill would prohibit U.S. funds from going to voluntary contributions to the UN or any UN agency.
If passed, we would punish the United Nations, and deservedly so, for trying to strap the U.S. with restrictive gun controls — and for enabling a lawless president to someday implement (illegally) anti-gun treaties like the ATT by executive fiat.
Gun Owners of America has supported legislation in the past to remove the U.S. from the United Nations. While H.R. 249 doesn’t go that far, it’s a good first step.
So, for those of you who have fought beside us against the ATT since 2012, now is the time to put a stake through the heart of this anti-gun vampire.
Hopefully, H.R. 249 would also cut off its head, shoot it with a silver bullet, and bury it in a lead coffin with a crucifix and a string of garlic around its neck.
Please urge Representatives to cosponsor H.R. 249 — legislation to cut funds to the anti-gun United Nations.
