United Nations human rights “experts” are weighing in on the mass shooting at the church in Charleston, South Carolina, calling for “urgent measures” to curtail gun-related violence.

“We utterly condemn the appalling attack on the Emanuel African Methodist Church in Charleston, South Carolina, this week and the killing of nine African Americans,” the said Mireille Fanon-Mendes-France, the chairperson of the United Nations Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent.

“Urgent measures must be taken to prevent gun violence and racist crimes motivated by prejudice that affect the security of Afro-Americans, their communities and society as a whole,” continued the statement.

There was no explication of what exactly those “urgent measures” should be, but given that it’s coming from a faction of the U.N., the authors of the anti-gun Global Arms Trade Treaty, one doesn’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out what those experts are alluding to — rolling back the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.

    The only steps necessary I see in my humble opinion is get the UN the hell out of the USA and get the USA out of the UN period.

    They want to destroy our Constitutional rights and build and control a ONE WORLD ORDER

  • gary February 3, 2017, 11:58 am

    I really do not see much action in Africa, DR, Mexico, Central America, Middle East. Europe, Russias take overs….. the list goes on…. stay the hell out of the US of A!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And get out, go to Paris, Tehran anywhere but the US. That is one of the few thing the Birchers have right.

    IF any man says he is anything but an American he is not an American, Mexican-American not an American’ as Teddy Roosevelt stated.

  • Chris June 29, 2015, 9:14 pm

    The UN has no authority within the US, regardless of anything Congress or the President does (whomever the President may be at the time).

    • David Neil Calkins October 27, 2016, 1:46 pm

      Wrong again ! The UN is coordinating and facilitating the relocation of all of the muslim and central american immigrants into this country. That includes: being in charge of US dollars that they divy out to the immigrants, for subsistance and travel. Thank the president for this, with his back room deals…….wake up people!

      • gary January 20, 2017, 12:26 pm

        we need to stop give them OUR US DOLLARS then and KICK THEM off our soil. END OF STORY>

  • hey June 29, 2015, 6:08 pm

    The psychiatric drugs that the FDA approves are responsible not only for this shooting but for the other mass shootings as well. The drug he was reportedly taking is known for violent out burst! I would like some idiot to tell me these chemically addicted drug addicts actions where all a coincidence.

  • Charlie June 29, 2015, 4:29 pm

    Ladies and gentleman there coming after our gun’s now more than ever. Now is the time to step up and protect our rights. Join and support the NRA and they will support us

    • miller July 2, 2015, 4:26 pm

      Nra,what have they done? They are just there to take your money when some commie tries to take your civil rights away. How can people who are in our government activity and overtly try to take your civil rights through government force and not see a jail cell? The nra doesnt sue for your civil rights they lobby and pay off corrupt politicians.

  • Mick Dodge June 29, 2015, 12:56 pm

    The UN can go pack sand.
    “We The People”
    Shall keep our guns at the ready till the last sunset of the last day that any and all oppressors stand at the ready to do us harm

  • Gary June 29, 2015, 11:43 am

    get the UN out of the USA and get the USA out of the UN PERIOD. We have NATO, we do not need the UN, they cost more money then they are worth. We pay the bulk of there existence here, WHY????? The John Birchers have this part at least right.

  • dancin'bill June 29, 2015, 11:40 am

    why is the un interested in America’s churches? they aren’t they are interested in taking over the world. one world government is the goal.
    the blacks are just chess pieces being moved around to suit the needs of the big dogs. the sad thing is the blacks are not smart enough to figure out they are pawns.

  • L Cavendish June 29, 2015, 10:52 am

    Do they know that blacks kill blacks here in the USA…by the thousands every year?
    If they are saying that we need to do sweeps of AA neighborhoods to find the illegal guns there, I am all for it.
    Bring in the gun sniffing dogs (they exist)…find illegal guns in government paid housing? Out you go. And off to jail as well.
    Search on the streets…search the cars…everywhere.
    Heck…bring in the UN to do it. But watch out for the cholera carriers and rapists among them.
    After that…then you can work your way to other areas.

    • miller July 2, 2015, 4:17 pm

      Whats an illegal gun? You sound like a progressive dumb shit.

    • gary January 20, 2017, 12:34 pm

      AS STATED ABOVE ME, you are either blind to history or a fool that wants to repeat it. When Dear Mr. Hitler came into power he would merely send the Brown shirts (Socialist I might add) and take all the WEAPONS AND ART that they found then there could little to no resistance. The UN wants to rule the whole ballgame, put us down where they think we belong so to speak, if you understand that , I am sorry for you. Have a pleasant life saluting the Blue and the White !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • D Hicks June 29, 2015, 10:43 am

    P U U N They use American troops and money, ask any one who served with UN troops and find out how they view them. Ask the next question ,how the UN views the country there in. It might give a clue about how the UN thinks about America.

  • Angel June 29, 2015, 9:34 am

    Now what is is the ultra liberal U N up to, Have they solved all the genocide in Africa and the middle east already.. hundreds of thousands DEAD, and the U N is and always has been a giant waste of money, while harboring and kissing the butts of outright tyrants…now they don’t like what is going on here…i pray for the victims, but the U N should clear their house before they visit their diatribe here………..

  • Roger June 29, 2015, 9:17 am

    This has all gotten to be so ridiculous. Now we have more people who know nothing about guns and what the real problem is, and they are reacting with big ideas as if they have the solution. Guns are not the problem, people are the problem. The focus needs to be put on people and why they are committing horrible acts against other people.

    Do not let those who know nothing about guns tell those of us who know about guns, about guns.

  • Larry Koehn June 29, 2015, 8:46 am

    More hot air from the Useless Nations adding to global warming. I would love to see the US cut it’s dues to a dollar and ask them to relocate to Iran.

  • Will Drider June 25, 2015, 1:31 am

    A United Nations that neither respects our Nations Founding Documents and pushes foe the elimination of them in part is not worthy to be hosted on soil protected by the blood and lives Citizens and Servicemen. The entire U.N. is a self serving bottomless money pit that has metastasized into an international cancer. It has no spine for its core mission and persues the folly of international commerce and bad science of the money makers pushing global warming. They provide a public forum for our enemies to spew their hatred in our faces and undermine our Allies. They allow the Countries that invade others, start wars, enslave and starve their citizen to hold veto power positions and Chair the very Committies that were created to keep such Countried in check. It is time to evict the U.N. from U.S. soil and resign Membership.

  • Alkemyst June 23, 2015, 4:47 pm

    Given that the UN not only does not recognize an inherent human right of self defense and has worked to actively ensure such right is never mentioned, I can rather imagine what their “response” is…or what it would if all us nutball gun owners would only peaceably relinquish those awful guns. The fact that NO ONE from the UN (or any other national or international agency or government) is going to be the sheepdog at your door when the wolf comes calling is completely irrelevant. “You don’t need a gun.” Mantra of the sheep, headed by sheep whose answer to violence is to defang the sheepdog then blame him for the violence when the wolf shows up…Molon labe, a**holes….molon labe…

  • Anonymous June 23, 2015, 4:20 pm

    So how do us proud Anglo-Americans defend ourselves against the racist Afro-Americans if our Constitutional Right to bear arms is taken from us…?

    • Chris June 23, 2015, 6:07 pm

      See your the problem “Anonymous” my statement had nothing to do with racism but simply stating the facts. It’s funny how “black lives matter” when a white man or policeman shoots a black individual and then it is made known that black lives matter, and I think they do. But it’s sad that the black community does not cry out or that the leftist media does not cry out at all when black youth are gunned down by other black youth due to drugs, gangs and outright violence. They only seem to voice their opinion to push their gun control agenda. Same thing with unsecured prescription drugs. Unsecured prescription drugs kill up to 45,000 people a year compared to the roughly 500 deaths per year due to unsecured firearms. Those are tragic losses but if the government was really concerned about saving lives then they should look at the facts and create legislature criminalizing people for not securing their prescribed drugs that are highly controlled substances.

      But no you have to make a remark about “proud Anglo-Americans”, your words and something that you insinuated was me or my thoughts and then decide to make a derogatory remark against African Americans calling them “racist Afro-Americans”, again your words not mine. You are either a democrat hell bent on your perceived idea of gun control or possibly a person of ethnic dissent that thinks its okay to be derogative towards African Americans to push your own agenda or make it a race thing. I would love to hear what your educated reply is.

      • L Cavendish June 29, 2015, 11:23 am

        Guns work to defend against ANY attacker..white or black…
        Most blacks are killed by other blacks…most whites are killed by other whites…you can look up the percentages and facts.
        But I believe when you look at the stats…many more black on white crimes than there are white on black. Again…just facts.
        I personally do not care WHAT color my attacker is…bullets are colorblind.

  • Chris June 23, 2015, 4:14 pm

    We do not need the worthless UN initiating or dictating law that affects law abiding US citizens. Appalling is what this is. If they are serious about saving African American lives then lets take a look at who is killing the most African Americans here in the United States! Anyone willing to guess what group of individuals is most responsible for the deaths of African Americans? Well, Well, Well, It’s African Americans! fancy that. That’s all we need is another political force pushing their agenda, instead of truly focusing on what the real problem is.
