After Obama win, U.S. backs new U.N. arms treaty talks
Reuters ^ | Wed Nov 7, 2012 6:48pm EST | Louis Charbonnea

Posted on 11/07/2012 4:50:07 PM PST by Mad Dawgg

(Reuters) - Hours after U.S. President Barack Obama was re-elected, the United States backed a U.N. committee's call on Wednesday to renew debate over a draft international treaty to regulate the $70 billion global conventional arms trade.

U.N. delegates and gun control activists have complained that talks collapsed in July largely because Obama feared attacks from Republican rival Mitt Romney if his administration was seen as supporting the pact, a charge Washington denies.

The month-long talks at U.N. headquarters broke off after the United States - along with Russia and other major arms producers - said it had problems with the draft treaty and asked for more time.

But the U.N. General Assembly's disarmament committee moved quickly after Obama's win to approve a resolution calling for a new round of talks March 18-28. It passed with 157 votes in favor, none against and 18 abstentions.

I predict epic failure for Obama trying to enforce any UN gun control treaty on Americans.

Stock went up today in Smith and Wesson —

The Springfield 1911 stainless steel barrel - the good one that your grandfather used...is for sale for $650...that side arm has served the US for decades - multiple wars - and the Marine Corp is now replacing the M9 with it...

...time we get back to our roots - time we stand up - and not let this country fall — arm yourself brothers...let them come - and watch them fall — we have 2014 on the horizon — there will be a day of reckoning...stand fast!

When they come for the guns, gun owners won’t have any idea that’s what the LEOs are there for until it’s too late. There won’t be any announcement before it happens.

Thanks Romney for losing this election and putting us through 4 more years of hell. Telling us you were going to win by a landslide, no concession speech. What a damn joke! NO MORE LIBERAL REPUBLICANS EVER!!!!!! You squishy liberal Republicans gave us one liberal after another. Enough and there is NO WAY I am going to say that Romney ran a great campaign like some idiots are saying. He LOST by a lot of electoral votes. It is disgraceful!!!!

No, more likely succeed with a DemocRAT-controlled Senate, and trigger a Lexington & Concord moment.

Mordor wants it, they'll get it, and that's where their "epic failure" will happen at the cost of millions of American lives in the next R2/CW2.

The Constitution will be upheld and defended against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

The few in the beginning may not get warning, but if they do it on a large scale, there is going to be push back and resistance. What is always quoted - 80 million gun owners? They won’t even be able to put a scratch in that number.

Besides, Obama’s signature on a treaty is Unconstitutional without Senate approval, and even with Senate approval no treaty can usurp a very understood US Constitutional right. And moreover, the next reasonable president would just withdrawal from any silly UN gun control treaty.

Too busy performing a Lewinksy on their buddy Harry Reid. You know, the same Harry Reid who will shove the treaty through the Senate by eliminating the filibuster rule.

And Who Should They Have Supported?

Besides, they tried to change history and claim Myth was pro-2A.......many FReepers bought it too.

Further the NRA is garbage anyway......all they care about is $$$ and there is plenty to be had by prolonging and exacerbating the problem.

The first few houses maybe. After that, it's going to get to be a high-risk proposition.

A treaty is binding in the United States only if it is ratified by a two-thirds vote of the Senate. How many Republicans would vote to ratify?

They’re not going to send blue helmets to your house. They’re going to pass laws that make it impractical or unprofitable to manufacture ammunition or firearms for sale to civilians. Eventually you won’t be able to afford to purchase either.

If there are EVER house to house firearm confiscations in this country, you will have lost much more than just your right to keep and bear arms. At that point, you may as well take as many with you as you can, because you will be murdered anyway, as you will be a “risk”.Also, if such did happen, only the first house would be a surprise. Everyone would know what was going on after that.

Do you even belong to the NRA? If you did, you might have noticed the dozens of anti-Obama emails, or the large amount of snail mail that they sent warning about the dangers of re-electing Obama. Or maybe you might have noticed the cover on the October issue of American Rifleman:

I just read a series of long scathing comments about the re-election of Barrack Obama on Facebook by a Chinese National living here who once dreamt of immigrating. Struggling a bit with grammar, but very lengthy and clearly pissed off. Pretty stunning. (I can’t seem to copy paste them, else I would.)

Of course you will.

They will come for them in the middle of the night, or send you neighbor for them. Or grab you wife, kids, etc, until you turn them over.

And all those nice young men in uniforms will say “We are just following orders.”

Don’t be naive. They will kill a few in a spectacular fashion and most will follow suit.
