LETTER: Congress needs to oppose United NationsOnly time will tell whether we will stand by and let the U.N. “peacekeepers” in their little blue helmets march down our streets and demand surrender of our deer rifles, pheasant shotguns, and whatever else we may have.

To the Editor:
A recent action by S.D. Sen. John Thune to oppose the “U.N. Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities” raised criticism from some. Unfortunately, they seem to ignore or don’t understand the ever present dangers of the U.N.’s repeated attempts to undercut U.S. law and to circumvent our sovereign U.S. Constitution.
There is much more. Check out the U.N. “Treaty of the Sea.” Then hold on to your wallet. There is the U.N. “Framework Convention on Climate Change” that will impose a global tax on U.S. citizens for causing carbon dioxide emissions. These are the same U.N. people who collaborated with the British scientists who defrauded the whole world with their manipulated climate data. There are apparently other provisions that may cost us some of our property rights.
Wake up America, here comes the U.N. “Small Arms Treaty.” With all the current hype about gun control, this one had better get our attention. Whatever we may believe about our Second Amendment gun rights, NO American citizen should want the U.N. to circumvent our Constitution and to have a bunch of foreign bureaucrats force registration, banning and confiscation of our firearms. How real is the threat?
Well, President Obama and ex-Secretary of State Clinton have been actively pushing for U.N. adoption, which will be followed by extreme pressure on our U.S. Senate to ratify the treaty. Didn’t Barack Obama just recently take an oath of office to “uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic?”
Only time will tell whether we will stand by and let the U.N. “peacekeepers” in their little blue helmets march down our streets and demand surrender of our deer rifles, pheasant shotguns, and whatever else we may have for defense of our homes and families. But, we say, that can’t happen here. Sorry, don’t hold your breath.
We had better hope that our South Dakota Sens. Johnson and Thune do everything they can to make sure our U.S. Senate votes down ratification of these dangerous U.N. treaties.
