Yesterday at the United Nation’s useless conference to ban guns worldwide, United States Undersecretary of State for Arms Control and International Security to the conference to go to hell! – not really but it might have had more effect.

Robert Joseph told the nations in attendance, most of which are lawless dictatorships with no laws to protect human rights and individual rights, where the U.S. stood on this issue to ban civilian possession of guns.

“The U.S. Constitution guarantees the rights of our citizens to keep and bear arms, and there will be no infringement of those rights,” he proclaimed to the dignitaries and functionaries. “The United States will not agree to any provisions restricting civilian possession, use or legal trade of firearms inconsistent with our laws and practices.”

TownHall.com reports that five years ago, then Ambassador to the UN John Bolton spoke at the first conference to ban guns and requested that language that would prohibit the civilian possession of firearms be removed. It was but will it happen this time?

The civilian possession of firearms promises to be a contentious issue once again. On Monday and Tuesday of this week, countries like Mexico and Indonesia spoke glowingly of the need to ensnare civilian gun owners in the UN’s web of gun regulation. It will once again take steadfast resolve from the US delegation to stop the gun banners from expanding the Program of Action to try and regulate legal firearms.

Many countries, like Mexico and Indonesia are dead set on banning guns for individuals and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why. As history shows, when civilians can’t arm and protect themselves, dictatorships rule.
