Obama could single-handedly nullify the 2nd Amendment

by  Doug Book,  staff writer

When Barack Obama signs the United Nation’s Arms Trade Treaty late this month, the force of his signature alone could suffice to nullify the 2nd Amendment rights of the American people. How is this possible if a 2/3rds vote by the Senate—that is, constitutionally mandated ratification– is required before the United States may become a legal party to any treaty?  

Interested Americans have been told that the Arms Trade Treaty will regulate the international trade of conventional weapons, the purported goal being prevention of arms transfers to rogue or terrorist states.  Naturally, one would think regulations intended only to manage and restrict the trade of weapons to dangerous, warlike or terror-supporting countries couldn’t possibly threaten the constitutionally protected right of American citizens to keep and bear arms.

However, in order to prevent the accumulation and export of possible contraband weapons, the Treaty mandates creation of a global arms catalogue– an international registry detailing the existence, history and ownership records of all conventional weapons.  Every sale, every transfer of a weapon within the borders of the United States would be contained in this registry. The left have dreamed of such a national gun registry for decades and this would give it to them.

How could the gun-grabbing Obama Regime impose this clearly anti-2nd Amendment, Treaty-mandated arms registration scheme on the American people without the Senate first giving its advice and consent?  

“When a nation signs a treaty it is obligated to refrain from actions that would defeat the object and purpose of the treaty until such time as it makes clear its intent not to become a party to the treaty.” (1) This is language from Article 18 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties. Adopted in 1969, 111 nations have ratified the Vienna Convention, a treaty which has become known as the “Treaty of Treaties” and is “…widely recognized as the authoritative guide vis-à-vis the formation and effects of treaties.”  (2)

Many versed in international law argue that the “object and purpose” language of the Vienna Convention means that “…a nation that has signed a treaty is prohibited either from violating the treaty altogether or from violating the treaty’s core or important provisions.”  (1) Although the United Nations have taken great pains to make certain that no specific Treaty language has made its way to the American public, a Spanish representatives made clear his own “object and purpose” when he said the UN “… will be happy to honestly contribute to reduce their number (weapons), [and] to regulate buying and sell of arms…” If this is what the completed Treaty hopes to achieve—and we can bet it will be—Barack Obama will have signed onto the most anti-gun rights document in the nation’s history. (3)

After he has signed the Treaty, Obama could use the “object and purpose” language of the Vienna Convention as an excuse to strictly adhere to all provisions contained in the Arms Treaty itself! That could include any and all United Nations mandates for the registration of guns, the licensing of owners, the regulation of sales, transport or usage—anything! Needless to say, such a scheme would remain Obama’s little secret until he has won the November election.

There can be no doubt that a re-elected Barack Hussein Obama would attempt to impose by means of executive fiat the unconstitutional terms of the unratified Arms Trade Treaty on the American public. After all, why not, as a cowardly congress has already permitted him every manner of abuse of power.

This could get interesting.

  1. Obama, Romney, Bush, Clinton…

    Whatever. They are all the same.

    This government is so flat out rouge and out-of-control at this point that it doesn’t matter what treaties, legislation, SCOTUS decisions are conjured up. The government is going to do whatever it and it’s enforcers think they can get get away with.

    Let’m pass all the paper they want, the final say on whether or not it will become “the way of the land” will depend on each individual and his rifle.

  2. If the 2008 election of the Manchurian gun-grabber prompted the biggest increase in firearm sales in the nation’s history, imagine what his re-election would accomplish, especially when his scheme to overturn the 2nd Amendment actually comes to light!

  3. Rest easy!! The United States has NEVER RATIFIED THE 1969 VIENNA TREATY!!!

    Thus, Obama cannot use the object and purpose wedge.

    See, that was easy. :-)

  4. All the more reason to prove his ineligibility to the position of POTUS. As the natives get more restless the spineless republicans will welcome the increased control of the populace.

  5. President Obama has not grabbed anyone’s gun. He has signed legislation that allows gun owners to carry in national parks and Amtrak trains. Gun owners can also store arms in the train’s overhead bins. He supports the 2nd Amendment.

    These are the simple facts.

  6. Gracie,

    The Vienna Convention has been signed but not ratified by the US. However, “The United States considers many of the provisions of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties to constitute customary international law on the law of treaties.” These are the words of the State Department. http://www.state.gov/s/l/treaty/faqs/70139.htm

    As is obvious by now, Barack Hussein Obama enforces those laws, edicts and “provisions” he considers appropriate–or rather, useful–regardless of actual statutes in effect, the language of the Constitution or the specific enumerated powers granted the executive branch. If re-elected, he would find the anti-2nd Amendment provisions of the Arms Trade Treaty VERY useful and would most certainly attempt to enforce those provisions–or as the official explanation would go–”refrain from actions that would defeat the object and purpose of the Treaty…”

    Revealing his thoroughly anti-gun rights beliefs has been far too politically dangerous for the One. He has therefore feigned respect for the right to keep and bear arms, just as he has feigned respect for the law and for the United States. When the Treaty is signed, he’ll certainly not make speeches about his intentions. But should he win in November, he will certainly use Treaty provisions to begin a federal gun registry with the goal of disarming the American public.

    A re-elected Obama will no longer have anything to hide from the American public. His thieving, Marxist ways will become even more apparent and the US and its people will be in even greater peril.

    Lock and load.

    1. Paranoia? One is only paranoid when nothing supports the validity of their expressed fears or concerns. Obama has gotten away with literally giving billions of tax dollars to campaign donors and political supporters and NO ONE in a position of power has challenged him. He has successfully made appointments without the approval of the Senate and NO ONE has challenged him. He retains an office for which he may not be constitutionally qualified and NO ONE in the opposition party will challenge him! He has placed documents–now proven to have been forged–on the White House website and NO ONE in power has challenged him. He placed a proven liar on the Supreme Court and no one challenged him. This list could be much longer. For example, how many millions in known-to-be-illegal campaign contributions did he receive in 2008, once again with NO ONE challenging him!
      The point is, WHO in a position of power would challenge his assault on the 2nd Amendment? He has already gotten by with criminal acts which no one in DC has the guts to call him on. Will Mitchie the Kid McConnell or John Boehner defy the combined forces of their DC colleagues and the liberal media to expose and subsequently lead the people to stop an assault on the right to keep and bear arms? Or would they not wish to “rock the boat” and place their own cushy jobs in jeopardy, thereby allowing Obama to trample on the 2nd Amendment?
      Obama knows he can get away with virtually anything thanks to the cowardice of Republicans and the collusion of his supporters in the media. He has proven it time and again. I don’t think it paranoid to believe he will continue on until someone stops him.

    2. Jim Beam : Take yourself along with your “simple facts” and ‘beat feet’ outta this website….who the hell cares about your Marxist opinions?
      We get enough of your crap from the lame stream media…we DON’T want it in our website.
      Bugger off, matey.

  7. He hasn’t grabbed any guns yet, because as he told the Russian’s, he’s biding his time until re-election, when he has nothing to loose. He’s been to busy Supplying weapons to our enemies (that honest Americans have trouble buying) which are killing our own people!

  8. Jim Beam ….if you aren’t a Marxist….what the Sam Hill are you ? Certainly NOT a Conservative !! (And this IS a conservative site you’ve been invading, and which do NOT fit at all well into!!)
    Perhaps I mistook you for a Marxist when you unnecessarily jeered a response to Old Puppy Max then made additional apologies for “The Chief-Louse-in-the White House”…
    With Americans like you around, stupid as you are, it’s a wonder we still HAVE a country.
    Quit being part of Obama’s thought police and start thinking for yourself…..or are you happy being a member of the Borg Collective ???

  9. Jim Beam….I don’t give a flying fig WHAT you believe so long as you take your inner channelings of Karl Marx someplace else. I still hold to my initial assessment of you…..and for your bloody information loser, I am NOT a Republican.
