The U.N. is taking another bold step in it's path to becoming the policy setting center of the world. In July, while we celebrate our inde- pendence, the U.N. will hold a conference on "Small Arms Re- view." It is a conference about global gun control. If you think that they are targeting gun- runners and terrorists - think again. Their stated goal is to regulate "the activities of bro- kers, setting strict import and export controls " They have never veiled their ultimate goal of banning guns globally, and (since most of Europe has thrown in the towel) the Unit- ed States is the intended tar- get. They want to abolish the 2nd Amendment, and disarm our citizens. What they offer is a global socialist fantasy - "If there were no guns, there would be no violence, there would be no poverty, there would be no hungry children." They re- fuse to address the real problem. Our problem is not gun control, it is people control. A gun has no mind nor will of it's own. When I attended high school in Georgia, every pick-up truck in the parking-lot had a gun-rack with a 30-30 cradled in it. Yes, there were the occasional fist- fights, but no gun was ever brandished, and no one was ever shot. We have digressed to the point in our educational system that our children are taught that God does not exist, that they evolved from apes, and that, since there is no absolute truth, they must set their own moral pa- rameters. Then, when they act like enraged animals and pull the trigger on their fellow students, we blame the guns. Rather than asking the hard questions about what is wrong with man, it is easier to point the finger at some- thing that cannot point the finger back. - Pastor Dean Herring You are invited to attend the SOUTH VALLEY BAPTIST CHURCH Meeting at the Kids Independent Day School 1615 Linder Rd.
