Time for UN to leave


MT. VERNON — Editor:

The United Nations is about to vote on a gun ban treaty designed to prevent firearms from getting into the hands of terrorists.

Our President and Secretary of State are desperate to disarm American citizens and eliminate the Second Amendment from our Constitution. Since this insanity is inherent in their thinking, there is nothing to be gained by writing, calling or demanding they change course.

Another Presidential Order will follow, in my opinion. It will declare a time limit on when all firearms must be surrendered to the Feds, or some criminal designation will be forthcoming. Law abiding citizens then become subjects of the “government.” Only the government and the criminal element will then be armed. It is time the UN leave our shores and big government be voted out, as well.
