President Obama is working on gun control, and if we do not act we are going to watch our Second Amendment disintegrate before our eyes.
Obama told Sarah Brady (from the Brady Campaign), “I just want you to know that we are working on [gun control]. We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”
Presumably that meant taking actions such as nominating the anti-gun Andrew Traver as Director of the ATF (although concerned citizens stalled his appointment, and he eventually took a job at the Denver field office), and orchestrating the disastrous “Fast and Furious” operation, which took the lives of Americans and was meant to act as a poster child for gun control.
So it was natural for Obama to reverse the policy of the United States and begin gun treaty negotiations with the U.N. after he became President in 2009.
The U.N.’s Coordinating Action on Small Arms says the arms trade must be regulated “in ways that would … minimize the misuse of legally owned weapons.” How many criminals and terrorists do you know with “legally owned” weapons? They will never have any problem securing firearms; but you can be certain law-abiding citizens like you and me, who wish to own firearms for protection and recreation, will suffer.
The U.N. laid low until after the election because any news about Obama supporting an international gun treaty would have boosted Romney. So, just as he tried to sweep Benghazi under the rug, and just like he asked contractors to ignore the WARN Act and hold off on giving layoff notices until after November 6th, Obama supposedly pressured United Nations committee members to keep quiet about the Small Arms Treaty until November 6th was over.
So wasn’t it interesting when, approximately 12 hours after he was re-elected, the U.N. General Assembly’s meeting of the First Committee on Disarmament called for the new round of talks beginning March 18th. This is when the U.N. will meet with the final version of the treaty, and the Obama administration is almost certain to sign it, which will send it to the Senate for ratification.
The U.S. is the world’s largest arms trader, accounting for more than 40 percent of global conventional arms transfers. The Small Arms Treaty is a treaty against America. The U.N.’s ultimate goal is to make America weaker and more vulnerable without armed citizens on the watch against tyranny. Also, within the language of regulating us to death and gun registries is that tiny little question of, just who qualified as a “terrorist” or a “radical regime?” Is someone who disagrees with the government? Is it someone against one world government? Is it a member of the military? Is it a conservative?
Is the United Nations now going to determine whether we can support resistance movements around the world and aid allies, such as Israel? Will they tell us our involvement is a “misuse” of arms?
The UN Small Arms Treaty 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
- Give foreign nations access to your personal data
It is Barack Obama’s dream: the dream of a large state to take care of weakened masses. If this treaty is implemented, governments will become more powerful and well armed, and citizens will see their right to own firearms, disappear. It is an invitation to tyranny around the world. And it is a hatchet in our Second Amendment rights.
National Rifle Association Vice President Wayne LaPierre is worried about that the treaty “could effectively ban or severely restrict civilian ownership of firearms worldwide.”
S. 2205 and H.R. 5846, the Second Amendment Sovereignty Act of 2012, must be passed in the House and the Senate to ensure our Second Amendment rights and the sovereignty of the United States are safe. These bills are meant to be a safety net if for any reason, the Senate ratifies the Treaty early next year, or an anti-gun President like Obama passes an Executive Order. We must protect our rights under the Constitution.
We need overwhelming support for these bills and for our Constitution, before it is too late. The right to own a firearm is a human right given to us under the U.S. Constitution, and the U.N. is a bloated international agency that constantly has to give itself something to do and has no respect for our laws, or our country. That is how wide-ranging, one-size-fits-all agreements bleed their way into Member nations that are as different as North Korea is to Canada; or as Iran is to the United States. That is why Iran was allowed to lead treaty negotiations a couple of months ago. Under the U.N. umbrella, all are equal…except for the United States, of course. We are the enemy.
And Barack Obama takes the side of the United Nations whenever given the chance. He allowed four Americans pleading for help in Libya to die; he has publicly questioned the wording of our Constitution; he constantly bypasses Congress in order to implement his agenda and he has lied to the American people on many occasions about the facts surrounding legislation. Do you really believe he gives a hoot about our Second Amendment? Do you believe he will lift a finger to stop the U.N. from getting involved in our affairs?
We must stop the U.N. from meddling in our Constitution, save our right to bear arms, and keep America free from international control.
Can you imagine an international body governing our Second Amendment rights; or, in this case, possessing the power to take them away? And remember, we have a President who will not defend our Constitution. He has shown his willingness to let the U.N. have their way with our government. It is now up to you and me to pressure Congress to do their jobs and defend our Constitution. There is no other alternative.
As proud citizens of this great nation, we must fight for our Constitution and remind our leaders to do the same. The American people need to contact Congress immediately and let their feelings be known about the U.N. Small Arms Treaty. Tell them to defend our Second Amendment, our Constitution, and the sovereignty of the United States of America.
