UN Convention Threatens Gun Owners’ Rights

May 12, 2009

ParentalRights.org today released The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child: The Impact on Private Gun-Ownership in America, a carefully considered legal analysis of the impact this United Nations treaty will have on Americans’ Second Amendment Rights. In it, author Michael Farris, J.D., establishes that ratification of the UNCRC poses a significant threat to the right of the American people to keep and bear arms:

  • The U.N. believes all children have a right to grow up in a community without guns.
  • The U.N. holds that the UNCRC is applicable to this issue.
  • They also hold that the idea that guns are beneficial is itself harmful to children.
  • The UN believes guns should never be accessible to children.
