Our 2nd amendment rights threatened by…The United Nations!

 

By Doug Book, staff writer

In 2006, the United Nations decided it was time to explore “…the feasibility, scope and draft parameters for a comprehensive, legally binding instrument establishing common international standards for the import, export and transfer of conventional weapons.”

The Bush administration voted against the creation of this proposed Arms Trade Treaty, believing that such oversight would be more productive on a national level. But on October 30th, 2009 Barack Hussein Obama reversed course, quite possibly turning the sovereignty of the United States, its Constitution and the rights of its gun owning public over to Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the member states.  Many believe this decision to represent a serious threat to the right of the American people to keep and bear arms.

 Claiming that the UN treaty would affect only international arms trafficking, Hillary Clinton said, “conventional arms transfers are a crucial national security concern for the United States, and we have always supported effective action to control the international transfer of arms.” But former UN Ambassador John Bolton is not buying the international aspect. In an interview with NRA News, Bolton stated, “the administration is trying to act as though this is really just a treaty about international arms trade between nations, but there’s no doubt…that the real agenda here is domestic firearms control.” Continuing on, “…many of the implications of these negotiations are very much in their domestic application.” 

 Former congressman Bob Barr agrees with Bolton. “Even though [treaty advocates] all say ‘We are not going to involve domestic laws and the right to keep and bear arms, that won’t be affected by all this’, that’s nonsense”, he says. “There’s no way…to ensure that firearm transfers internationally don’t fall into the hands of people that the UN doesn’t like…unless you have some sort of national regulation and national tracking.” (2) Taking it even further, Bolton asserts “after the treaty is approved and it comes into force, you will find out that it…requires the Congress to adopt some measure that restricts ownership of firearms. The administration knows it cannot obtain this kind of legislation purely in a domestic context. They will use an international agreement as an excuse to get domestically what they couldn’t otherwise.” (2)

 In July of 2010, Julianne Versnel, Director of Operations for the Second Amendment Foundation, represented the Foundation as an NGO delegate at the UN Arms Trade Treaty meeting. Her report is chilling to say the least, as she writes “there appears to be little doubt that some sort of treaty will be adopted by 2014, if not by 2012. It is anticipated that the final treaty will attempt to register firearms, require micro-stamping, destruction of surplus ammunition on a very set schedule…and restriction on any transfer of arms including between private individuals…” “If the United States is a signatory and this is ratified by the US Senate, this UN treaty would be the law.”

 We know the Obama regime will sign on to this assault on the 2nd amendment. The vote of Republican senators will decide the outcome.

  1. We need to ship the United Nations along with Obama and his allies out to Kenya. We don't need them nor can we afford them here in the land of the free.

  2. Since when did we vote the U.N. into the position of making law for the United States of America and when did we give the POTUSINO and the State Department the authority to sell the sovereignty of this great nation to any one?? Damn this Democrat party and their desire to become the supreme law makers of the land without the permission of WE THE PEOPLE

  3. the book Lethal Engagement, Barack Hussein Obama, the United Nations & Radical Islam, by Joseph A. Klein is the most important book to read at this time to see how the IOC and the America hating nations in the UN are working with Obama to islamize our nation and enable the UN to rule over it.

  4. Parts of the gov. and people are trying to take our gun rights away. due to the fact they fill guns kill people and when they are over looking the real truth it take a person to pull the triger. You can't tell a gun to fire but, if there is no one there to do it for the gun then it can't fire. With what ever is going on in the white house an what ever obama/gov. is doing, I fill if they don't start caren about this country and quit helping others 1st this country is going to bring havick in its self. an there may be a chance of the U.S. deviding in two!

  5. one more thing to add, when it comes to our men and weman going in to the military an signing up they are forgetting to tell them to read the fine print at the bottom. Where it says when signing up don't forget to make out your will and please bring your own body bag if needed.
