The United Nations does not approve of our Second Amendment. They are hoping to do something about it soon. Using the pretense of a proposed global “Small Arms Treaty” which will be touted as something to fight terrorism, insurgencies and international crime organizations, you can bet that, hidden inside, the treaty will target our Constitutional right for law-abiding citizens to own and bear arms.
While the terms have not yet been made public, if passed by the U.N. and ratified by our Senate, it will almost certainly force the U.S. to:
• Enact tougher licensing requirements, creating additional bureaucratic red tape for legal firearms ownership.
• Confiscate and destroy all ‘unauthorized’ civilian firearms.
• Ban the trade, sale and private ownership of all semi-automatic weapons
• Create an international gun registry (clearly setting the stage for full-scale gun confiscation.
Have no doubt that this plan is very real and has strong support from the Obama administration. In January 2010, the U.S. joined 152 other countries in endorsing a U.N. Arms Treaty Resolution that will establish a 2012 conference to draft a blueprint for enactment. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has already pledged to push for Senate ratification.
Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton has cautioned gun owners to take this initiative seriously, stating that the U.N. “is trying to act as though this is really just a treaty about international arms trade between nation states, but there is no doubt that the real agenda here is domestic firearms control.”
The majority in the U.S. Senate is smart enough to realize that the U.N.’s gun-grab agenda is unconstitutional, politically suicidal for those who support it, and down-right idiotic—right?
These are people who make a habit of voting for bills that they haven’t read, so let’s not count on them to preserve our Constitutional rights. If we leave it up to them, we could lose both our guns and our rights.
