In George Orwell’s 1984, “firearms were impossible to procure” and “the war is waged by each ruling group against its own subjects.”
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 United Nations Small Arms Treaty early next year, or an anti-gun President like Obama passes an Executive Order. We must protect our rights under the Constitution.
2nd Amendment: 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.
As the people become weaker, the state grows stronger. If we do not act soon, we are going to watch our Second Amendment disintegrate before our eyes. The Democrats are trying to sneak gun control language into various bills, such as the recent mess revolving around cybersecurity. And last week, Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) tried to sneak an amendment into the Defense Bill that will make it illegal for many of our veterans to own a gun—all without due process.
The United Nations sees a perfect opportunity to send us over the cliff of freedom, as we approach our fiscal cliff of doom. The U.N. has been working on gun control for years. President George W. Bush opposed international gun control so he refused to work with them on their Small Arms Treaty. Enter Barack Hussein Obama, who has no particular love for our Constitution and is the U.N.’s hero when it comes to weakening America and her citizens. So it was natural for Obama to reverse the policy of the United States and enter into 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.
They can’t be serious about saving the good guys and going after the bad guys when they allowed Iran to lead some of the negotiations! The final document will likely:
- 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
Let’s face it: it’s us they want. The United States is the world’s largest arms trader, accounting for more than 40 percent of global conventional arms transfers. The Small Arms Treaty is therefore really 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 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.
National Rifle Association Vice President Wayne LaPierre is worried about that the treaty “could effectively ban or severely restrict civilian ownership of firearms worldwide.”
It is Barack Obama’s dream: the dream of a large state to take care of weakened masses. 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.”
That must be the same kind of “under the radar” flexibility he bragged to Russian President Medvedev about.
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.
If this treaty is implemented, governments will become more powerful and well armed, and citizens will see their right to own a firearm disappear. As you know from reading Conservative Daily, we are fighting a consistent assault against our rights. Nearly every day, we are alerted to a new threat against our freedom and our founding principles. This U.N. treaty is simply an invitation to tyranny around the world, and here in the U.S. it is a hatchet in our Second Amendment rights.
We can still rely on Congress to defend our sovereignty, but they need to hear from us. We can’t just assume they will protect our rights—and we can’t assume that Obama will not get out his pen and sign away our Second Amendment rights by Executive Order. That is why we need overwhelming support for these bills and for our Constitution, before it is too late.
We can absolutely stop the U.N. from taking away our rights. Just recently, as the United Nations worked on a treaty to regulate the Internet, the House voted overwhelmingly to reject any form of United Nations control over our online activities—which was great news, seeing Members of Congress stick up for American sovereignty.
Gun control is a completely separate issue, however, and there are people in Congress who wouldn’t mind international gun control. It is imperative that we 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 as he creates some type of one-world, global “utopia” where our freedoms are stripped and our wealth is redistributed. It is 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.
