Will the Senate threaten the 2nd Amendment?

The United Nations Arms Trade Treaty goes into effect on December 24th. Through that date, Coach is Right will provide background and current information concerning the dangers this treaty poses to the American people and their freedom.

President Obama has been re-elected since this piece was written and Republicans secured a massive, midterm victory in 2014. The midterm results should guarantee an incoming Senate that would  not ratify the Arms Trade Treaty. But conservative voters were certainly betrayed by the vote of the Republican House on the Omnibus Spending Bill a few days ago.

As New York City plays host to a conference which will shape the UN Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) into final form, most 2nd Amendment supporters are concerned that stealth language or overly broad applications woven into the document will serve to separate Americans from their right to keep and bear arms. After all, why else would preliminary versions of the Treaty be so difficult to obtain and U.N., pre-conference position statements remain consistently absent from the internet?  

Barack Hussein Obama leads the most anti-gun rights Administration in the nation’s history. Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Janet Napolitano and recently appointed, ATF Acting Director B. Todd Jones have spoken often and passionately about the importance of implementing more restrictive gun control legislation.  

But the gun-grabbing Regime will not be able to ratify the UN’s global gun control measure without first securing a 2/3rds majority of senators to vote in favor. And it won’t be easy to convince 67 politicians to sign onto a document which countless critics have spent nearly a decade rightly representing as a worldwide assault on the 2nd Amendment. It will be especially difficult as the American public may once again be told that the document has to be “passed” in order to find out what’s IN it!

Late last year the Heritage Foundation obtained an ATT “Draft Paper” from an NGO participating in the Treaty mark-up. The Paper makes it clear that the finished product would be broad in scope, controlling everything “from rifle scopes to battleships.” And though the Treaty purports to monitor only “international arms transfers,” document language shows the UN also wishes to control “internal transfers” as “any firearm transfer—meaning any change in ownership…might conceivably somehow affect another nation…”

Therefore the ATT will demand signatories control and monitor “transfers including ‘transport’ across national territory.” To accomplish this, a nation would necessarily “maintain records of all imports and shipments of arms that transit their territory,” creating records on “the type of arms transferred and their ‘end users’.” So as international records would be kept of all weapons bought and sold within the United States, the Treaty would create not only a global arms registry, but the rules by which arms may be transferred and to whom.

Would Senators sympathetic to global arms control try to slip these and other unconstitutional ATT edicts past American voters? 

DC politicians—including Republicans—have already written purposely misleading and legally ineffective language into both the 2012 and 2013 National Defense Authorization Acts for the sole purpose of deceiving the American public into believing their constitutional rights were being looked after.  As for treaties, they commonly include “reservations;” that is, language designed to “define and limit the effect of a ratified treaty.” A few dedicated, gun-grabbing Senators might get the idea of attaching a codicil to the ATT, claiming it would prevent the ratified Treaty imposing upon the 2nd Amendment rights of the American people thereby safeguarding the right to keep and bear arms.

Of course they wouldn’t bother to inform Americans that the Arms Trade Treaty specifically forbids any reservations which are “incompatible with the object and purpose” of the Treaty! Would members of the Washington political class be so dishonest as to try such an underhanded stunt?

It’s doubtful that a sufficient number of Senators would risk the fury of the NRA and gun owning voters. But then, stranger things have certainly happened in the nation’s capitol.  After all, a Supreme Court Chief Justice has just prostituted both himself and the Constitution!

Maybe keeping tabs on the Senate wouldn’t be such a bad idea.

Our 2nd Amendment rights threatened by The United Nations

 For nearly 2 decades, possible adoption of the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty has concerned gun owners who fear the deliberate destruction of their 2nd Amendment rights.

On December 24th the ATT goes into effect in the United States thanks to the signature of John Kerry on behalf of the Obama Administration. Beginning today, Coach is Right will provide background and current information on Treaty terms and what they can mean to Americans across the nation.

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.

Israel vs the world

By Jim Emerson, staff writer

Israel has pretty much declared it is sick and tired being the target of hate by Muslim terrorists and their enablers. In a battle against the world propaganda machine, Israel finds itself as David against the Goliath of the American and UN ministries of disinformation. The U.N. has a history of blaming Israel for defending itself and had to get used to being mistreated by every Democrat leaders since the assassination of Robert Kennedy by a Palestinian.

Obama’s contempt for Israel

 
Though admitting that Israel has the right to defend itself the Obama White House is doing all it can to deny the Jewish state the ability. Obama’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Libya and Syria, his non-involvement in the rise of the Islamic State and his support of al Qaeda terrorists in Syria have only emboldened the enemies of Israel. Hamas was planning a major action against the Jewish state believing that the Grand Mufti of the Great Satan would forbid the Jews from fighting back. It didn’t work.

Israel stood up against the call for a cease fire by both Barack Obama and John Kerry because she was effectively fighting back against terrorists. Israeli forces were destroying launch sites and the tunnel systems built by Palestinians for the purpose of invading Israel and killing Jewish residents. Obama was surprised and humiliated by Israel’s rejection of the one-sided, Muslim-appeasing cease fire proposal presented by Secretary Kerry. It seems the American president underestimated the unity of the Israeli public behind the war effort. Israel will no doubt be punished in the near future by the Public Housing Muslim from Kenya because the One doesn’t like opposition, least of all when it has been declared before the entire world.

The only reason Obama and Kerry called for a cease fire was because Israel was winning. The early damage to Hamas was of a strategic nature, cutting off its electricity, supply routes and sea ports.  Hamas will have a difficult time recovering from the loss of supplies and resources.

The invaluable United Nations
The UN, in its strategic brilliance, has designated public schools to be safe bomb shelters for children and civilians. In fact, the world assembly is so humanitarian it even returned the weapons stored in these buildings to Hamas! It’s no secret that Muslims will use Mosques, Hospitals and Schools as weapons caches. They have also famously used women and children as human shields.

During its operations, Israeli forces have been giving the civilian Muslim population ample warning before striking a known target. The latest incidents in which civilians were killed or injured undoubtedly involve women and children literally held in place by Muslim men. Knowing they would leave the area upon news of a warning from Israeli forces, brave Muslim fighters lock these useful martyrs in the announced target area, confident that the world media will condemn Israel for their death. Of course the UN will look the other way or risk finding its own observers among the next tally of martyrs.

Israel will have to go it alone, understanding it has the support of the majority of its own citizens and sensible people of the world.

 

Even the United Nations says Sweden is on her way to third world status, all thanks to Islam

by Kevin “Coach” Collins

Sweden the land of gentle loving people; the land of my great grandparents is rapidly committing national suicide and there is nothing anyone can do to stop it.

This harsh truth as laid out in a UN report that says Sweden has about fifteen more years before the North African Muslim hordes that are pouring across her borders completely engulf her and pull her down into rough parity with today’s third world crap holes like Libya.  

The Swedish Left has impaled their own country on a spike called “multiculturalism.” Far from the utopia these fools believed bringing in the poorest least civilized people in the world would bring about, they have irreversibly wrecked the lives of their countrymen.

Just as everywhere else, the swine in the Swedish media are aiding in the destruction of their own country, but unlike most places they are actually acting as PC storm troopers. With the help of Marxist computer experts, the Swedish media is tracking down and exposing anyone who dares speak out against this madness even if they spoke “anonymously” on line. They are publishing the addresses of these “offenders” so they can be punished for speaking out.  These quislings use Alinsky tactics of bullying and labeling to smother anyone who raises a voice in protest to what is happening.

Rapes of blond native Swedish women are becoming commonplace.  While these rapes are generally not allowed to be reported the cold truth is that about 1 in 4 Swedish women has been raped by one or more violent Muslim thug; and more than 3 of every 4 arrested rapists in Sweden is a North Africa Muslim immigrant.  Moreover, the dimwitted offspring of these thugs are destroying Sweden’s school system and have already pulled standardized test scores down to ten year lows.    

The situation in Sweden is now at a crisis point with “assimilation” now described as a “racist hateful concept” by the insane suicidal Leftist who run the country.

Shutting the doors and deportations are the only real options but that can’t happen as long as this suicidal Swedish government is in charge.

My great grandparents would weep at what has become of their country. Your prayers are needed for Sweden.

United Nations crack “scientists” have decided 17 years of no warming proves there is a crisis

by Kevin “Coach” Collins

Undeterred by facts, United Nations “scientists” will soon deliver their most ominous warning about the danger the world faces from “global warming.”

Of course they don’t use the discredited phrase “global warming” because it produces laughter among sane people. Instead they talk about “climate change” as if the weather we experience is a static phenomenon.  Predictions of civilizations destroyed by floods droughts, wars, economic collapse and of course carbon emissions are woven into this latest iteration of this never ending hoax.  

This time the fake whines of gloom and doom come from the august sounding Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and because of it we are once again going to be pressured into costly policies that will line the pockets of two bit jerks in the U.N. and do nothing to address this imaginary problem.

As is usually the case with charlatans who predict dire consequence for not falling for their tricks, the IPCC is predicting the worst of all of this will be felt around 2100 – how convenient!  

The IPCC says “…hundreds of millions” of coastal dwellers will be displaced by 2100. Small island countries will be hit first.  This reminds us that like UFO landings,  these catastrophes ALWAYS seem to hit in out of the way locations, never in Manhattan or Miami. And the worst things these fakers predict are ALWAYS visited upon brown-skin, third world countries that “we of the leading countries MUST help.”

Showing they are very aware of the ignorance of the people they are talking to, the U.N. predicts a 2% average decline in wheat, rice and corn production for each decade from now until 2050, wringing its hands that the “ poor tropical countries will be hardest hit.”  

All of this would be hilarious if we didn’t have a president like Barack Obama who will slavishly follow what these empty headed fakes demand. Hold on to your wallet America because the United Nations is making a move on it even as we smile.
