The U.N. vs. The Second Amendment

Dave Kopel, writing for The Volokh Conspiracy, comments on the latest going on at the United Nations and the continued effort to hamstring America's Second Amendment, all in the name of worldwide small arms control (which most people equate with violence in third-world countries).

Though the U.N. claims it has no interest in infringing on American sovereignty, particularly with our Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, there is this final chilling note from Kopel's piece:

"According to Peters -- the head of the organization which the U.N. says represents "civil society" on gun issues, all handguns should be banned, as should all rifles capable of firing 100 meters, as should the defensive ownership of any gun."
A must read.
