Our Second Amendment proclaims that, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
But that Amendment means nothing to the United Nations.
It’s no secret that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama are working “hand in glove” with the United Nations to pass a Small Arms Treaty that is, at its core, a massive gun control scheme.
The “United Nations Programme of Action to Prevent, Combat and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All Its Aspects” will:
- Enact tougher licensing requirements, making it almost impossible for you, an individual, to own a firearm
- Require the government to confiscate firearms owned by individuals
- Place further restrictions on the sale of arms
- Create an international gun registry
The next meeting on this treaty will begin on August 27th, which means we must act now to defeat it!
The United Nations met during the month of July to carve out the treaty’s language; and the negotiations were led by, of all countries, Iran!
That in itself should make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.
Thankfully, at the end of negotiations in July, the treaty stalled, because member states could not agree on all the aspects of control and the U.S., Russia and China asked for “more time” to consider the revisions.
This was good news, but it was only a short-term victory.
State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said the treaty will definitely be revisited: “While we sought to conclude the month’s negotiations with a treaty, more time is a reasonable request for such a complex and critical issue.”
not going to enforce the law, there’s really nothing anyone can do about it.”
Various U.N. organizations claim this Small Arms Treaty will prevent terrorists and radical regimes from acquiring weapons. But, let’s be real: criminals will never have any problem getting their hands on weapons. Law-abiding citizens like you and me, who wish to own firearms for protection and recreation, will suffer.
An unarmed America is a weakened America, and that is just what the U.N. wants.
In fact, in the wake of various shootings across America, the U.N. member states are more likely to want to take away our gun rights, and Members of Congress may feel pressure from anti-gun groups to go along with it.
It happens every time some maniac inflicts tragedy upon us with a gun—anti-gun advocates line up for talk shows, the lobbyists come out of the woodwork, and there is a call for broad gun “reform” and “control.”
Our Congress has been relatively quiet on the issue—after all, it’s an election year, and they don’t want to anger constituents. But don’t take their silence to mean they are not seriously considering ways in which to limit your Second Amendment rights. Many of them want to push for gun control, but they are going to wait until after November to do it.
If the U.N. comes up with a workable treaty during their conference that begins on August 27th, they will send this treaty to the Senate for ratification—and remember, conservatives do NOT have a majority right now in the Senate.
We would like to have one after the November elections, but that is not guaranteed.
Right now we are pushing for support of S. 2205 and H.R. 4846, bills that will protect Americans from any U.N. treaty and keep our sovereignty in place.
It may seem inconceivable that our “leaders” would allow a world body like the United Nations to decimate our Second Amendment rights—but it is definitely not out of the question, especially with Barack Obama in the White House!
After all, he has shown great disdain for both our Constitution AND our Congress, frequently bypassing both to get what he wants.
Do you honestly believe that President Obama is going to “go to bat” for our Bill of Rights against the United Nations?
He has had no problem ignoring the law when it comes to voter fraud, requiring everyone to purchase health insurance, or running the Fast and Furious gun running scheme (which, of course, is part of Obama’s plan to dismantle our gun rights).
University of Pennsylvania constitutional law professor Kermit Roosevelt told Politico, “If the president says we’re not going to enforce the law, there’s really nothing anyone can do about it.”
If the Small Arms Treaty is passed and ratified by the Senate, you will give up your Second Amendment rights and turn gun control over to the United Nations. It also could mean that foreign nations—including our enemies—will have access to your personal information. It will give crooks and thugs at the United Nations control over your freedoms and your right to own and operate a firearm.
What the American people need to do right now is fax Congress and demand each and every Member stand up for our U.S. Constitution and our Second Amendment.
Opponents of the Second Amendment will not rest, and neither should those of us who value our Constitutional rights.
We don’t have a President in the White House who is interested in defending our Constitution. Obama has proven time and time again he’s willing to tear down the foundations of this country in order to impose his agenda—and his agenda includes handing over our sovereignty to a world body like the United Nations.
That is why we must, without hesitation, make our opposition to this treaty known.
