GOA informs us of Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tx) stepping up to the plate once again.
This time Rep. Paul has introduced a bill to withdraw the U.S. from the U.N. He also is asking for help on a petititon to urge the House to vote on his bill. You can view & sign the petition here.

Why, you may ask, is this bill to dissolve ties with the U.N. important? I'll let GOA answer that:

"But as the battle to block the reauthorization of the semi-auto ban continues to wage within our own borders, a sinister effort continues from without. In early June, the United Nations will be sponsoring a global "Week of Action Against Small Arms."
"Small arms" as defined by UN documents refers to many of the revolvers, pistols and rifles that millions of Americans already own.
Lawrence Auster is a reporter who covered a similar UN gun control conference in 2001. He says the disarmament agenda at the UN is so blatant that it "unembarrassedly admits that it wants to strip small arms from all non-government individuals [like you] because the possession of such weapons allows people to oppose the UN itself."
This upcoming disarmament conference is just another U.N. attempt to pressure member states like the U.S. to adopt more stringent gun controls."

Look the petition over & sign it. Calling &/or writing your reps & telling them you want the U.S. out of the U.N. wouldn't hurt. & drop a note to Rep. Paul to tell him how much you appreciate all the work he's tried to do on your behalf.
