Rand Paul Takes on Hillary's Proposed UN Small Arms Treaty

Kentucky's newly elected Senator Rand Paul has pleased conservatives with his calls for fiscal and constitutional conservatism, ranging from abolishing the Department of Education and all foreign aid to proposing substantial cuts to the federal budget.

Now Paul has joined the crusade to end Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's efforts to work with the United Nations to pass a new "Small Arms Treaty."

In an email to his supporters, Paul explains, "Disguised as an "˜International Arms Control Treaty' to fight against "˜terrorism,' "˜insurgency' and "˜international crime syndicates,' the UN's Small Arms Treaty is in fact a massive, global gun control scheme."

According to Paul, if ratified, the UN "Small Arms Treaty" would force the United States to enact stricter licensing requirements, confiscate and destroy "unauthorized" firearms, ban the trade, sale, and private ownership of all semi-automatic weapons, and create an international gun registry.

Critics of the treaty contend it is but one in a number of steps taken by the United Nations to bring the United States "to its knees." As long as America continues to secure the liberties of its citizens, it stands in the way of the movement toward a one-world government.
