Newt to NRA: Right to Bear Arms is a Human Right

Here’s why Newt isn’t going to get any farther (from the Newt Gingrich 2012 campaign site):

Appearing before the National Rifle Association annual meeting this afternoon, Newt Gingrich called for a new United Nations treaty that would give the right to bear arms to every person on the planet.  This proposed treaty would counter the United Nations Small Arms Treaty currently supported by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

After Gingrich’s speech concluded, NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox came out on stage and said “The Gingrich Treaty…I like that.”

The Daily Beast noted that Newt’s reception from the crowd of 5,000 people was more enthusiastic than Governor Romney’s.

Somewhere along the line, folks are going to imagine a Newt Presidency and see themselves dead in their living rooms. Just think if every man, woman and child worldwide were armed!

Give a thought to what it would do to our legal system (of course, given the current Supreme Court, it might not make any difference.)

Bang bang Maxwell’s silver hammer…etc.

  1. Yeah Newt isn’t going anywhere except maybe FOX but his thinking does fit right (no pun intended) in with the current Conservative movement.
    Putting America back in a position of telling the rest of the World what is right and wrong.
    I wonder if Conservatives really want everybody armed? I’m guessing they haven’t thought that thur completely. There are a lot of people they don’t like. Do they want them armed?

  2. They won’t be happy until they turn this country into an armed camp like Somalia. Sure let’s just issue every 12 year-old on the planet an AK-47, and see how that works out.
