Is Rand Paul (R-KY) Retarded?

Posted on the 07 October 2011 by Mikeb302000
In February, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) sent out an urgent message to his supporters. The subject was the United Nations Small Arms Treaty, a pact under consideration by the UN that would wipe out Americans' Second Amendment rights. If it were to be ratified by the Senate, Paul wrote, it would allow the government to "CONFISCATE and DESTROY ALL 'unauthorized' civilian firearms." And that would be just the beginning. Once implemented, the treaty it would mandate that all guns be registered with the international body, paving the way for "full-scale gun CONFISCATION."
Only there's no such thing as the UN Small Arms Treaty. The senator was broadcasting unfounded propaganda being disseminated by an extreme gun group.
Is it any wonder why the US's economic fortunes are in a death spiral when a freakin' US senator is promoting fairy tales?
