From INVESTORS.com, The United Nations is putting the finishing touches on an Arms Trade Treaty that transcends borders and may even trample our Constitutional right to bear arms. Every indication is that the president will sign it.
Like the New Start and Law of the Sea treaties before it, as well as the Kyoto Protocol and Agenda 21, the Arms Trade Treaty being finalized at the U.N. this month is one of those feel-good, can’t-we-all-get-along pieces of parchment whose net effect is to accomplish little except to eat away at American sovereignty and freedom.
Just as the world’s worst human rights violators sat on and often chaired the U.N. Human Rights Council, Iran, arms supplier extraordinaire to America’s enemies, was elected on Saturday to a top position on the United Nations Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty being held in New York. It began July 2 and extends through July 27.
This came right after the same U.N. found Iran guilty of illegally transferring guns and bombs to the murderous Syrian regime of Bashar Assad, currently slaughtering thousands of its own citizens as an impotent U.N. joins the U.S. administration in standing around and watching.
The mindset of the one-worlders preaches that guns cause crime and war and if we only get rid of those otherwise inanimate objects the evil that lurks in the hearts and minds of men will suddenly dissipate. Then we can buy the world a soft drink and sing “Kumbaya.”
We are assured by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who enthusiastically backs the treaty, that it only deals with international trade and trafficking and does not affect our Second Amendment rights. How the treaty would have dealt with Operation Fast and Furious, the administration program that walked guns into the hands of Mexican drug cartels, she does not say.
We don’t believe such assurances, given by an administration that has shown no respect for the U.S. Constitution and has a robust gun-control agenda of which Fast and Furious may have been a part. Its expansive view of its powers, recently ratified by a bizarre Supreme Court decision on ObamaCare, is supported by judges at all levels increasingly willing to incorporate international precedent and law in their decisions.
The treaty, which former Clinton adviser and political pundit Dick Morris believes President Obama will sign soon after it is completed, would seem to cover guns and weapons in the warm, live hands of private American citizens.
Guns defend not only liberty but also survival, as well as peace. Instead of no guns, perhaps we need no UN or anybody that attacks we the people or our Constitution.
The Communist Party of America, the Nazi Party and the Muslim Brotherhood all endorse Obama. These all have one thing in common, the downfall of the USA. And STILL…people support this individual.
When a president signs a treaty that is in obvious conflict with the US constitution, he has clearly and directly violated his oath of office.
The Constitution doesn’t *permit* citizens to have arms, it prevents the government from depriving us of the right to own them with which was ours from birth as citizens of this country.
Obama and his cronies need to understand that the pot is starting to boil. There are lines that, once crossed, will cause the pot to boil over. Curtailing the second amendment is one of them. I believe the Founders would stand solidly behind that sentiment.
As serious as this attack on the 2nd Amendment is, it is not the worst part. It is the proverbial camel’s nose under the edge of the tent, or a crack in the dam. It is an attempt to chip away a little bit at the sovereignty of our nation. Once precedent is set, further erosion of our sovereignty will be easier, and one-world government will be on the way. The US needs to pull the plug on the UN, and then watch their balloon fly around the room as one country after the next follows our lead. Reduce them to the whiny brats they are.
