A Panamanian attorney and gun owner rights activist recently told me that George Soros was pushing gun confiscation in Panama, and that every time he adds another country to the gun control list, the position of the U.S. at the U.N. becomes more precarious.

In other words, thanks to George Soros in some considerable measure, the UN noose is tightening around the neck of gun owners in the U.S.

George Soros is a Hungarian born socialist billionaire who now resides in the U.S. Soros, who wants everybody (but himself) to be equally poor, was convicted in France of insider trading.

There is the story of the fellow who murdered his parents and then pled to the court for mercy because he was an orphan. Similarly, George Soros, having lost on appeal to France's highest court then appealed to the European Court of Human Rights (which is still pending) on the grounds that the French process took too long.

What an irony that Mr. Insider Trading, aka George Soros, funnels a lot of his left-wing political financing through the Open Society Institute.

I have seen the footprints of George Soros' financing of gun-grabbing legislation throughout the world. When I was in South Africa a few years ago, the law that the communist African National Congress party had put on the books there had been promoted by George Soros.

Earlier this year when I addressed a conference of the Panamanian Association of Gun Owners (APPA), I heard a Panamanian speaker detail the bill that APPA is fighting in the Panamanian National Assembly. Not surprisingly, it has the same provisions as the South African law. Then a Costa Rican member of that country's National Assembly described the gun control bill in their legislature. Care to guess what is in the Costa Rican bill? The same provisions.

The Costa Rican added that the bill was being pushed by President Oscar Arias, aided by his Arias Foundation which is funded by none other than George Soros.

The warning of the Panamanian attorney that the UN noose is tightening around the necks of American gun owners sounded all the more credible when the bigger picture of Soros-sponsored international gun control emerged.

But, as the salesman says, there is more.

Soros is not ignoring direct involvement in the U.S. He pumped big bucks into the anti-gun show referendum campaign of Americans for Gun Safety in 2000. Presidential candidate, Sen. John McCain was the pitchman for this attack on the Second Amendment in the Colorado and Oregon referenda of that year.

With this kind of position on guns, it is not surprising that McCain's 2000 presidential bid fizzled. Because he planned to run again, McCain wanted to park his key campaign staff where they would be available the next time they heard his siren call. That place ended up being the Reform Institute which received major funding from George Soros.

McCain's Reform Institute was the tip of the spear in the campaign to gag political speech, aka, the McCain-Feingold campaign act of 2002. Among other things, McCain was insulating himself from pesky criticisms by gun owners of his anti-gun record which puts the lie to his claims of support for the Second Amendment.

How interesting. A trip to Panama helped me understand better than before how sinister George Soros is, and the threat he represents to freedom, not only in the U.S., but in many other countries as well.
