Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) on Saturday warned President Barack Obama was working on behalf of "anti-American globalists" in the United Nations who were plotting against the U.S. Constitution.
In a fundraising email sent on behalf of the National Association on Gun Rights, Paul alleged the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty was a secret plot to completely disarm American civilians.
"Ultimately, UN bureaucrats will stop at nothing to register, ban and CONFISCATE firearms owned by private citizens like YOU," Paul wrote. "So far, the gun-grabbers have successfully kept many of their schemes under wraps. But looking at previous attempts by the UN to pass global gun control, you and I can get a good idea of what’s likely in the works."
Paul said the United Nations would "CONFISCATE and DESTROY ALL" of civilian firearms in the United States and ban the sale of all semi-automatic weapons. He also alleged the United Nations was controlled by "petty dictators and one-world socialists" who were plotting to usurp American sovereignty.
"These anti-gun globalists know that as long as Americans remain free to make our own decisions without being bossed around by big government bureaucrats, they’ll NEVER be able to seize the worldwide power they crave," Paul wrote.
