On JUNE 3rd, the United Nations will release their Arms Trade Treaty to member nations for ratification.
President Obama has indicated his willingness to sign it, and it will then move to the Senate for ratification.
Adopting this U.N. treaty means the international body of the United Nations will override our Second Amendment. Tell Congress to vote no!
The ATT will regulate the trade of large arms (such as tanks, helicopters and missiles) and also, “Small arms and light weapons,” the definition of which is “weapons designed for individual use, including” but not limited to “revolvers and self-loading pistols, rifles and carbines, sub machine guns, assault rifles and light machine guns.” It 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
For years, the United Nations has been working on an Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) that would regulate small arms on a global scale. President George W. Bush took the U.S. out of negotiations, because he did not want any involvement in a treaty that would infringe on our Second Amendment rights. Barack Obama put us back at the table.
And now, we are faced with a threat to our sovereignty and our Bill of Rights. What Congress couldn’t get done by legislation after the Sandy Hook tragedy, the United Nations will accomplish on June 03rd with the stroke of a pen!
Do not be fooled by liberals trying to play off this treaty as nothing. It will establish an international bureaucracy that will regulate and strictly control all arms, ammunition and parts –and if our country signs on to it, it will lessen our Second Amendment rights and eventually eliminate them. The treaty has been marketed as a way to keep weapons out of the hands of dictators and terrorists, but it is an international attack on private gun ownership and will essentially regulate our Second Amendment rights.
Fax Congress now and tell them to stop this international intrusion. Tell them to defend our Constitution, save our right to bear arms, and keep America free from international control.
