On the campaign trail, then-candidate Donald Trump pledged that “we will no longer surrender this country or its people to the false song of globalism.”
And today he took a massive step towards following through on that pledge by announcing he is removing the U.S. signature from the U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which was signed by former Secretary of State John Kerry in 2013.
“My administration will never surrender American sovereignty to anyone. My administration will never ratify the UN Arms Treaty,” Trump said while speaking at the National Rifle Association conference in Indiana.
The U.N. Small Arms Treaty is designed to create regulations on the import and export on small arms, which includes everyday firearms that U.S. citizens have the right to own. But gun rights advocates have long been concerned about having a global system of gun regulations, especially with the vast majority of nations leading the effort being vehemently anti-gun.
Gun rights groups like the National Association for Gun Rights have long been sounding the alarm on the treaty, calling it a “global gun control scheme” which could result in global gun licensing requirements, an international gun registration, and bans on the private ownership of certain firearms.
Big League Politics spoke to Dudley Brown, who is the President of the National Association for Gun Rights to discuss the monumental decision.
“It’s been a long slog since Hillary Clinton announced our country would support the Treaty in 2009,” Brown told Big League Politics. “And finally a stake has been put in the heart of this vampire. Now we just need to make sure we’re not still paying for it, which we have been.”
The Treaty first gained traction in October of 2009 when then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced the U.S.’s support, stating that, “The United States is committed to actively pursuing a strong and robust treaty that contains the highest possible, legally binding standards for the international transfer of conventional weapons.”
This was quickly followed by Congress voting to support the measure at a 2012 U.N. conference. In 2013 is when Kerry put his signature on the move, only having ratification left to accomplish.
But because of the work of group’s like the National Association for Gun Rights and figures like U.S. Sen Rand Paul, the move never gained any traction beyond the signature. The U.S. has continued to fund the implementation of the treaty, despite efforts to remove those funds. It is unclear if Trump removing the signature will also cancel any future funding.
Trump remove the signature makes clear the U.N. that the U.S. is not in any way involved in their global gun control scheme.
National Foundation for Gun Rights Pitched in $50K for Kyle Rittenhouse’s Legal Defense
They’re stepping up to the plate.
The National Foundation for Gun Rights (NFGR) announced on September 17, 2020 that they are providing $50,000 of aid to Kyle Rittenhouse, who is facing various criminal charges after he defended himself and business owners from leftist agitators in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
“I spoke with Kyle’s mother this morning to let her know NFGR received over a thousand donations amounting to over $50,000 from folks who support her son,” declared Dudley Brown, Executive Director of the National Foundation for Gun Rights.
Rittenhouse’s mother was thankful about receiving the donation. She stated, “No words can describe what we’re going through. Thank you so much – and I know Kyle and the rest of the family would say thank you too.”
NFGR’s funds will go towards the Kyle Rittenhouse trust fund that is being operated by his attorney, John Pierce. The funds will only be used according to the desires of Kyle Rittenhouse’s mother.
“We want Kyle to have the best defense possible,” remarked Brown. “If he were getting a fair shake from prosecutors, he would be home with his family right now instead of spending weeks in a jail without bail.”
According to video footage taken on the night of August 25th, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse was fleeing an armed mob who were screaming, “Beat him up!” and “Get that dude!”
“The left is doing everything in their power to portray a 17-year-old kid as the villain,” stated Brown. “We believe Kyle acted legally and defended himself from a dangerous group of armed thugs whose clear intent was to cause permanent harm.”
The National Foundation for Gun Rights plans on continuing to back the Rittenhouse family until Kyle is able to receive justice for simply exercising his sacred right to self-defense.
NFGR is the legal arm of the National Association for Gun Rights. Since its founding in 2000, NAGR has been one of the leading no compromise, Second Amendment organizations in the country.
Unlike most organizations, they’re willing to fight all unconstitutional gun control legislation at the federal and state level. Second Amendment supporters can donate to NAGR and NFGR at the links below:
