Remember!?!?!?! This is mostly the same house and senate members that passed the NDAA (lock em up by command of the president without charge, without access to counsel and indefinitely). Don’t worry, just sit back and accept the fact there is no longer a Constitution so accept that the majority of supposedly elected traitors in DC will WITHOUT A DOUBT allow the US to adopt this UN treaty. Most politicians denigrate the Tea Party folks because they are scared to death of us thus they must disarm us. Once this treaty is passed we can all respond in an appropriate fashion as the obozo, Holder, Hitlery and it, it goes by Janet Nipolitano, attempt to confiscate our firearms.
No one should be shocked by this. It has always been Obama’s plan.
Barack Obama’s gun control is ‘under the radar’
For an administration with a secretive itch for gun control, the situation is ideal. They can let the United Nations do the dirty work of drafting onerous new restrictions on civilian firearms, then package them inside a treaty with legitimate measures to control true military armaments.
The U.N. has scheduled the treaty to be finished in July of next year just in time to go to the Obama White House for ratification.
Thats under the radar for you.
But one risk of operating under the radar is that you cant see the moves of your opponents. This is not the first U.N. gun-control rodeo for my friends at the National Rifle Association. They know treaty ratification requires a two-thirds vote in the Senate. Thirty-four senators would have to vote no to block the treaty.
While the rest of Washington was fixated on the debt ceiling debate, the NRA quietly marshaled opposition to the treaty among pro-gun senators.
Fifty-eight senators have now called out the president on his plan. Led by Sens. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) and Jon Tester (D-Mont.), 45 Republicans and 13 Democrats have written two strong letters one from members of each party to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. All the senators have vowed to oppose any treaty that restricts civilian firearm ownership.
Whats ironic is that the United States already has the worlds pre-eminent system for regulation of true military arms sales. If the rest of the world merely adopted the U.S. regulatory regime, there would be no need for an Arms Trade Treaty.
Except from the article.
