Do any of you pay attention or give any mind to these kinds of warnings?

I got the email alert message below with the link that follows to 'take action'.

UN Holds Stealth Meeting To Pass Gun Ban ASAP

ALERT: Watch out! Obama and the UN are fast tracking a global law to REGULATE/AND OR BAN your firearms. Anti-gun college students organized a clandestine UN meeting to speed up the passage of the UN Arms Trade Treaty. The gun-grabbers said the purpose of their meeting was to "discuss technical aspects of the treaty." We all know, the real purpose of the meeting was to come up with a gameplan to force this treaty into international law SOONER than the original deadline of 2012! The globalist gun ban agenda wants to disarm the world one gun at a time! Take action NOW to protect YOUR RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS!


This all appears bad, but the link asks for money to fax our senators; is this worth doing?

Here's a link to the organization sending these alerts.

This is very old FUD (i.e., a bogus alert designed to cause Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt) which has popped up here on CGN dozens of times. It's entirely bogus.

Well, the U.N. is trying to push a small arms treaty that would strip our second amendment rights. SAF will tell you all about it and they aren't part of the tin foil hat brigade.

I just make sure all of my donations go to organizations that get things done...

The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is (IIRC) the 501(c)3 arm of SAF.

I agree - some of their email alerts can be a little hystrionic.

However - with all the amazing good SAF does, I'm willing to let these slide.
