Hours after election, White House supports U.N.ís global ban on Guns (Glenn Beck)
Glenn Beck ^ | 11/8/12 | Glenn Beck

Just a few hours after being re-elected, President Obama encouraged the United States to support new United Nations discussions on a global treaty regulating guns and the gun industry. Supporters of the treaty believe the talks collapsed in July due to the campaign and Obama’s fears that Romney could use it against him. Now that the President has four more years in office, the White House is ready for the discussions to begin again.

“While everybody is saying, you know he’s going to compromise. He’s going to get together with the Democrats and the Republicans, he’s going to reach across — the very next morning he was pushing a global ban on guns,” Glenn said.

The Blaze reported that a Washington official said, ““We seek a treaty that contributes to international security by fighting illicit arms trafficking and proliferation, protects the sovereign right of states to conduct legitimate arms trade, and meets the concerns that we have been articulating throughout.”

Why buy them if you’re just going to hide them? Why not save the money? You’re surely not going to use them once everyone else who could help you have been subjugated. Just wondering because I see people make those comments frequently and I simply don’t get them.

. . . shall NOT be infringed.

If we use even larger font will Obama ignore it less? Nope.

Treaties supersede the constitution, regardless of font size. That is why he is doing it this way. Get ready, here it comes.

I’m really not certain a civil war can happen. We have way too much layers of law enforcement from Fed to local; however, some form of peaceful(violent if necessary) secession needs to be seriously discussed and pursued once all the details are finalized.

As statutes may be held void because they contravene the Constitution, it should follow that treaties may be held void,
the Constitution being superior to both. And indeed the Court has numerous times so stated.

Thanks, Nachum
This is much ado about nothing.
This UN arms agreement is a treaty, and as such, must be ratified by 2/3 of the Senate to pass. The Constitution clearly states that.
Clinton tried the same crap with the Kyoto agreement, which is really a treaty. Clinton signed it but the Senate wouldn’t ratify so it is null and void.

I am not sure I agree. This is part of a larger playbook. Team Obama is planning on doing much much more.

They will roll out an entire playbook to attack gun rights. The fun is only starting. :(

They need two-thirds of “those present”.

Agreed. The Republicans need to be very alert to Dingy's shenanigans.

Understood, and thanks. I was not aware of that.

But let us be realistic: if the proposed treaty is challenged because of a presumed conflict with the constitution who decides on what is the "law of the land"? (now... where have I heard that phrase recently?)

If you want to be on or off the Agenda 21 ping list, please notify me by Freepmail. It is a relatively low volume list in which we have been exploring the UN Agenda21 and related topics. We have collected our studies with threads, links, and discussions on the Agenda 21 thread which can be found here:


Post 128 of the Action Thread is a summary of the history of Agenda 21, “what they are doing”, “what to do about it” and a good bibliography for further reading.
