U.N. Human Rights Chief Says U.S. Needs 'Robust Gun Regulation'

The United Nations’ human rights chief called on the United States Tuesday to enforce more effective gun control measures in the aftermath of the Orlando terrorist attack, dismissing as “irresponsible pro-gun propaganda” the notion that firearms make societies safer.


So the UN human rights chief is effectively crapping on the US Constitution.



U.N. human rights commissioner Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein urged the U.S. government to live up to its obligations to protect citizens from the “horrifyingly commonplace but preventable violent attacks that are the direct result of insufficient gun control.”


Aside from the fact that this UN official is advocating fundamentally changing the US Constitution; how well has disarming a country's population worked out for the people in that country?(Russia,Turkey,Germany,China)




Zeid deplored what he called the ease with which individuals can buy firearms in America – “in spite of prior criminal backgrounds, drug use, histories of domestic violence and mental illness, or direct contact with extremists – both domestic and foreign.”

That is not true. Different states and cities have very restrictive gun laws and it has made no difference.(see chicago)




Zeid cited a recent report from his office on the question of human rights and civilian access to firearms. Its conclusions include a call for governments to regulate the acquisition and possession of firearms. “Human rights law requires [member] States to protect people from harmful private activities and to adopt appropriate regulatory and institutional frameworks,” the report reads.

Why is the United States participating in an organization that openly calls for us to change our laws?

The UN can suggest whatever they want. The moment they start voting on sanctions to force the US into submission is when I will start to care about anything they say.

If its nothing but a butt-wipe, it should be handled as such.

Need for milia, yeah right. As if any such milita could even dream of fighting a full-worth army.

I will never understand the fear of a US-citizen for the UN. Like that the UN would want to rule a country, or even could. The UN is such a piece of red tape, they couldn't govern their way out of a paperbag..

All in all: relax, nobody will want to touch your itzi-bitzi-rifles. Nobody cares for them. It should just be forbidden to buy new ones. The problem would solve itself then in the next 10-20 years.

Start caring my friend! FOX news is already promoting some reform for gun laws and Lindsey Graham who was at the Bilderberg meeting is supposed to be making an announcement sometime soon.

Seems like the puppets have received their orders!

The UN calling for gun control in the U.S. is no different than a foreign country invading us, and then after conquering, setting up new laws.

Hmm, sanctions by UN to different countries often applauded here on ats. What happened to all the pragmatic thinking and when we decide to bring freedom to other countries.


It doesn't feel so good to have a foreign governing body dictating what's best for a country, does it?

I wouldn't expect much more than this from someone who hasn't been afforded the protections our constitution provides. And as far as not standing up to "a full worth army" your country had some experience with that and failed miserably; as I understand it many people regretted not being able to stand up against a tyrant.
The fact is right now many in the UN and the US government want to take all fire arms away from US citizens. Our constitution is the only thing stopping them.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA . All I got to say on that one.

It is no where near any semblance of fear. It is distrust for a very corrupt organization (re:IDIOTS) bent on world governance. Name me one , just one, example of anything the UN has not epic failed on ?

If you read what he said (it's in your link), he was merely stating the obvious, supported by statistics and evidence, that a society awash with guns is not really that safe.

I don't want to question the holiness of the Unchangable US Constitution, but did the authors of the document really foresee a world like today? I think the maturity of a society is based on its ability to change. The debate on guns in the US is pretty immature when looked at from the outside. No offense.

The United Nations needs to clean up its own backyard before peering over the fence to criticize the state of anyone elses.

Who in their right mind has any respect for an outfit that makes Saudi Arabia the head of their human rights trainwreck?

What are they even doing on US soil? It is the nest of the elite and from whence they wield their trickery.

I agree its not fear. The UN has its own agenda.

And, not being a U.S. citizen, your opinion should be handled the same. It's not your country, your Rights that are being taken away or even your problem. 15 or 20 years? I have guns almost as old as I am, that still work perfectly. When are you people going to learn? Europe is not the U.S. and we have people here who would just as soon cut your throat for $20 as look at you. Taking away the law abiding citizens guns is not going to get them out of the hands of gang bangers and other criminals. See that word? Let's say it together...Cri-min-al. It means they do not obey laws. Laws that will do nothing to lower violent crime, just like they haven't worked in the past. I know, I know, call the police. That's a bit hard to do when you're dead.

When the U.N. does something about the human rights violations in Saudi Arabia and the M.E. in general, South America and several other places who need it first, they can come give their useless opinions on gun violence in the U.S. We see this every time something happens. Out of millions of gun owners, a few nuts do stupid, horrible things, so let's punish every gun owner for the crimes of a few. Everything that has happened, is illegal. Did that stop them....or will bad people do bad things, no matter what laws are on a piece of paper?

Oh I agree but those invasions were the decisions of a few in which the people had no control over.

the weapon that was used was legally purchased. Ain't nuthin anyone can do about that except moan and complain.

I'll tell you this, if someone is willing to go this far, guns are the least of our worries. You know Timothy McVeigh used a bomb, not a gun and killed alot more people, do we really want these folks getting "creative"? I have NO idea why the lame stream media is calling this the worst terrorist in America, when they are others.

The founders valued an individuals right to self defense, how is that immature?

Well, on removing the blinkers you may find that the UN does some good in the world. Some things are a bit crap, like the politics at the top, but here’s a few, off the top of my head…

- Aim to eradicate hunger - World Food Program
- Support for refugees fleeing conflict and other ills - United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees
- Work on over-population and reproductive health - United Nations Population Fund
- Peacekeeping
- Help to mothers and children - United Nations Children's Fund
- Support the global battle against HIV/AIDS
- Global fight against disease - World Health Organization

Hope that does not change your worldview too much.

There are stats all over the place. However, the question is whether there is evidence that a society awash with uncontrolled guns is safer then a society in a different situation.
