The United Nations, that bastion of self-enriching, bloated gas bags, will soon be holding a month long convention on the UN Small Arms TREATY between 192 nations. Of course, Hillary Clinton is right in the middle of things in an effort to commit the US to this unconstitutional treaty.
Because this is a treaty, and not one of those federal corporate contract agreements the presidents are so fond of, it will have to be brought to the states for ratification (See U.S. Const. art. II, § . Section 3 provides the power to make treaties (with the advice and consent of two-thirds of the Senate)) except I don’t believe that will ever happen. Some, never heard of before, political slight of hand will be given as the reason as to why ratification of the treaty by the states was by-passed
Clinton will agree to the treaty on behalf of the US and Obama will sign it with great pleasure. For decades it has been the intent of the federal government to disarm lawful gun owners in the US.. Every possible excuse and reason has been used to try and sell the idea of striking down the 2nd Amendment by both partys. The actual intent is, by U.N. mandate to disarm private individual gun owners in America claiming a global treaty banning the ownership of small arms. Its all for world peace! It will make the military assaults on all nations far easier if the general population isn’t armed and able to mount even a limited defense.
Don’t look to the District of Criminals for help!
If you think other than a few Republicans and even fewer Democrats will half-heartedly object or stand to defend our constitution or our inalienable rights of any kind, much less the right to keep and bear arms, you are sadly mistaken. Both partys have been equally active in their assaults on the constitution, with members of both partys actively promoting the militarization of local law enforcement against their respective communities. Our police and many sheriffs departments are now para-military organizations capable and willing to turn on their own communities in subservience to Homeland Security edicts and orders. Regarding this, the District of Criminals couldn’t be happier.
“This is the Treaty that will infringe on the US Constitution, the Second Amendment, and your right to self defense. The United Nations and specially invited anti firearms rights groups who want to eliminate our firearms freedoms will be convening at the UN July 2nd through the 27th to draft a Treaty to accomplish the goal of regulating firearms and accessories, and ultimately the disarming all of America.”
Spain agreed with the drafters of the Treaty, with input from various international and US gun control groups, who want the “Urgent and essential” Treaty to;
“a) Include a golden rule that prohibits the authorization of arms transfers where there is a substantial risk that used to commit or facilitate the commission-¬ – serious violations of international human rights and international humanitarian law.
b) Allow a comprehensive coverage that includes controls on weapons, ammunition and related material and on ALL (emphasis added) transfers.
c) explicit regulation of solid systems of licensing, transparency and reporting.”
We wouldn’t sell arms to the same countries we are fighting…would we?
Supposedly, this treaty will involve only the sale of small arms and military weapons to other countries. Thats never going to happen because the US has been selling arms to mid-eastern countrys for years on end, even as we waged wars on them.
What’s The Impact Of U.S. Arms Deals In The Middle East? (NPR Interveiw between Melissa Block and her guest William Hartung)
For the last three years we have sold military weapons valued at about $350 million to Bahrain with no questions asked, including helicopters, guns and ammunition.
The recent uprising in Egypt was accompanied by the use of teargas, the canisters stamped U.S.A.
Host Melissa Block speaks with arms export expert William Hartung. He’s the director of the Arms and Security Initiative at the New America Foundation. From that interview:
Mr. HARTUNG: Well, I think on the low-end, the teargas probably caused the most uproar. But over the years, a billion dollars or more every year, we were selling tanks, we were selling fighter planes, we were selling armored personnel carriers, things that were used sort of indirectly to close off the square, to buzz the demonstrators. So, you know, not to the same degree of impact as the teargas, but certainly I think causing some ill feelings towards the United States for supporting the regime for so many years.
This interview only touched on a small number of ongoing arms deals which the US has engaged in for more than 30 years.
WE are the enemy our government fears
In preparation for the disarming of America, our law enforcement agencies now refer to the general public as [civilians]. That is a referenced military term. These same agencies now carry fully automatic rifles, and in some instance grenades. Cities are buying military tanks with ADS systems installed on them and many are buying drones to spy on their populations; drones which will be fully capable of being armed. Who is it they are preparing to wage war on?
And guess who it is that will show up at your door in full battle rattle to demand your guns? The UN? Not hardly! Those who show up at your door (and they will show up) will be dressed in military gear meant for war. Since they will not be in Iraq or Afghanistan or any other country we are aggressively terrorizing……who is it they are preparing to wage war on? It appears this will be war on American soil with what used to be [American’s] dressed for war against the remaining American public. We are the enemy our government fears and we currently have the means to fight back against assaults by our own government.
There is not one of us who possesses the fire power or weaponry equivalent to what our own government is prepared to use against us to force us into submission. Still, this will not stop a great number of Americans from fighting back.
While this unconstitutional treaty is sold to the public, they will speak great volumes about how disarming everyone (except police, the military, special agents, special ops, FBI, CIA, NSA, and every other corporate federal agency) will help bring [peace] to the world, I don’t believe it will be quite that easy.
Peace will be the last thing the criminal gang on CRAPitol Hill will achieve here at home if they do not stand up to this assault on the 2nd Amendment.
