NRA Delivers Remarks at United Nations Concerning Proposed Arms Trade Treaty


We reject the notion that American gun owners must accept any lesser amount of freedom in order to be accepted among the international community.

National Rifle Association’s Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre addressed the United Nations this afternoon.

He told the U.N. to not interfere with the Second Amendment freedoms of Americans and pledged to continue the fight to preserve civilian ownership of firearms in the U.S. He said the NRA will oppose any U.N. provision that seeks to prohibit or regulate U.S. civilian firearm ownership.

LaPierre said in his remarks, “The cornerstone of our freedom is the Second Amendment. Neither the United Nations, nor any other foreign influence, has the authority to meddle with the freedoms guaranteed by our Bill of Rights, endowed by our Creator, and due to all humankind.”
