Wonder why President Obama isn’t doing more on the topic of gun control?
Perhaps because the United Nations is carrying water for him, with the Small Arms Treaty. As Larry Bell of Forbes suggests, the treaty would most likely entail:
- Enact tougher licensing requirements, creating additional bureaucratic red tape for legal firearms ownership.
- Confiscate and destroy all “unauthorized” civilian firearms (exempting those owned by our government of course).
- Ban the trade, sale and private ownership of all semi-automatic weapons (any that have magazines even though they still operate in the same one trigger pull – one single “bang” manner as revolvers, a simple fact the ant-gun media never seem to grasp).
- Create an international gun registry, clearly setting the stage for full-scale gun confiscation.
- In short, overriding our national sovereignty, and in the process, providing license for the federal government to assert preemptive powers over state regulatory powers guaranteed by the Tenth Amendment in addition to our Second Amendment rights.
Why should Obama lift a hand, when the UN plans to give him such a lever?
Editor’s [Steve] Note:
- There is no treaty. A draft has not even been released.
- The United Nations can do a lot of things … that does not mean we have to blindly do what they say.
- The Senate would have to pass such a treaty … and if it really “confiscated and destroyed unauthorized civilian firearms” do you think they would pass it just to keep President Obama from being embarrassed in front of the world’s community as Bell suggests in his commentary post?
- The Supreme Court has ruled the Second Amendment is an individual right, and the tide is definitely turning in favor of gun rights advocates across the United States.
Should you be freaked out about this? Should you be sending me emails about this every few days? Should you be sending out chain emails to your friends and family about this treaty that does not currently even exist in draft form? Absolutely not.
Should you keep informed about real local, state and federal legislation that would restrict your ability to protect yourself and your family with a firearm … yes.
