The United Nations leadership and members have been actively pushing for the dismantling of gun laws around the globe, and Ban Ki-Moon has found a strong comrade in President Obama with the ultimate goal of diluting the Second Amendment.
He complimented Obama for his commitment to handling this “scourge” of gun violence.
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Friday called for the United States to take action to reduce gun violence following a mass shooting that killed nine people at a U.S. college campus in the state of Oregon.
The statement by U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric:
New York, 2 October 2015
The Secretary-General was deeply saddened to learn of the mass shooting in Roseburg, Oregon, on 1 October. He conveys his sincere condolences to the families of the many victims and wishes a swift recovery to those wounded.
In the face of yet another tragedy of this kind, the Secretary-General expresses his strong hope that the United States, through the robust democratic process that characterizes it, will be able to take the necessary action to reduce the appalling toll in human life that gun violence is taking on American society. He notes that President Barack Obama has consistently demonstrated his commitment to address this scourge.
