Obama’s Gun Control Crown Jewel

Dear John,

Every day that goes by without an announcement from the Trump administration is only emboldening anti-gun statists at the United Nations.

They know that one simple Executive Action from Donald Trump’s administration — announcing that the U.S. will no longer support their global gun ban — could crush their goal of imposing the U.N.’s so-called “Small Arms Treaty” in the United States . . .

But the questions remain: Will he do it? And why hasn’t he yet?

Are anti-gun New York advisors in his administration in Washington, D.C. trying to convince him to leave the Treaty untouched for “security?”

John, with the stakes so high, you and I can’t take anything for granted.

That’s why it’s absolutely critical you fill out and sign the Official Firearms Sovereignty Survey that I’ll link you to in a moment!

As I’ll explain shortly, the longer the Trump administration sits on its hands, the more dangerous our situation becomes . . .

And should this scheme ever be imposed in the United States, it would be nothing short of a global gun control DISASTER.

After reading through the details of the Treaty, it’s hard to see how our Second Amendment could survive such an assault.

Perhaps the worst of the Treaty’s provisions can be found in Article V, which mandates countries establish a “National Control List” — or a NATIONAL GUN REGISTRATION database!

You and I both know gun registration is just the first step toward outright CONFISCATION.

And the U.N. is already plotting their next step — developing new “International Small Arms Control Standards” (ISACS).

Their goal is to impose these radical anti-gun initiatives on every nation who signs the U.N. “Small Arms Treaty.” Introductory language already includes:*** Mandated national “screening” for all persons seeking to own guns, giving bureaucrats the final say on whether or not you’re “competent” enough to own a gun;

*** Restrictive licensing for gun and ammo sales, and perhaps even bans on certain types of firearms. This could include anything from semi-auto rifles to shotguns to handguns!

*** Restrictions on the number of guns and amount of ammo any “properly-licensed” individual may legally own;

*** Bans on magazines holding more than ten rounds;

*** Bans on owning a firearm for self-defense — unless a citizen can somehow demonstrate need and get federal government approval.

To date, 89 nations have ratified the Treaty. Another 130 — including the United States — have signed on signaling conceptual support.

Now, Treaty advocates are bragging the U.S. will ultimately be FORCED to comply with terms of the Treaty “because of peer pressure but also market pressure.”

As one anti-gun country’s foreign minister stated:

“[W]e expect the U.S. to abide by the Treaty even if ratification will take some time.”

That’s why it’s so critical that the Trump administration acts now to end all U.S. support for this Treaty.

The longer the United States remains a signatory to this Treaty, the more likely it is that these anti-gun statists will be right.

As the largest economy and number-one market in the world, the United States can make or break the U.N.’s “Small Arms Treaty.”

On one hand, should Mr. Trump announce the U.S. no longer supports the Treaty, it could light the fuse that ultimately blows this scheme up worldwide.

But on the other hand, continued U.S. support for the scheme — intentionally playing into the hands of gun control advocates or not — will only allow Treaty specifications to become more entrenched and far more difficult to get rid of down the line.

And ultimately, law-abiding gun owners like you and me will pay the price with our freedom.

That’s why your action is so critical to break through President Trump’s wall of advisors and ensure he hears the voices of Second Amendment supporters all over the country.

Many of those advisors (some with strongly anti-gun views) are taking every opportunity not to “rock the boat” on any issue –- including the U.N.’s “Small Arms Treaty.”

Many are even pushing the United Nations’ lie — straight from their Office of Disarmament Affairs — that this Treaty is really about combating, “insurgents, armed gang members, pirates, [and] terrorists!”

For the sake of freedom’s survival, it’s a brazen lie you and I cannot allow to go unanswered.

That’s why I was so excited to see the National Association for Gun Rights leading the fight to urge the Trump administration to remove the U.S. as a signer to the U.N.’s so-called “Small Arms Treaty!”

Their efforts over the past few years have stymied the gun control crowd every time they’ve sought to ram some radical scheme through Congress.

But the National Association for Gun Rights depends on the action and support of good folks like you for their effectiveness.

So your action is absolutely critical to ensuring the voices of Second Amendment supporters all over the country are heard.1. Do you believe the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Second Amendment are the supreme law of the land?

2. Do you believe any attempt by the United Nations to subvert or supersede your Constitutional rights must be opposed?

If you said “Yes!” to these questions, please fill out and sign the survey the National Association for Gun Rights has prepared for you.

With your help, the National Association for Gun Rights will continue to mobilize grassroots support insisting the Trump administration removes all U.S. support for the “Small Arms Treaty.”

If they have to, they’re prepared to launch a grassroots firestorm, including everything from U.S. mail, to phones, email, blogs and guest editorials — and even paid media if necessary.

All of this will take money, but we have to break through Washington, D.C.’s growing cocoon around our new President and ensure he understands the U.N. “Small Arms Treaty” threat must be killed NOW — before it’s too late.

So along with your survey, please agree to make a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or even just $35.

Every dollar counts in this fight, so even if you can only chip in $20, it will make a difference.

Thank you in advance for your time and money devoted to defending our Second Amendment rights.

For Freedom,

Rand Paul
United States Senator (R-KY)

P.S. It’s time for Second Amendment supporters to rally to ensure the Trump administration removes the United States as a signatory to the U.N.’s “Small Arms Treaty.”

If we don’t, it could lead to utter disaster for our Second Amendment rights.

So please sign your Firearms Sovereignty Survey and put yourself squarely on the record AGAINST the U.N. “Small Arms Treaty.”

And if you can, please make a generous contribution to the National Association for Gun Rights of $250, $150, $100 or even just $35 or $20 right away!
