The UN Arms Trade Treaty...as unwanted as the UN itself
By: Diane Sori
Let’s cut right to the chase...the Obama wanted global United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) is nothing but a conundrum of restrictive obligations that basically renders our American firearm industry impotent and strips us of our Second Amendment rights.
The second Amendment of the US Constitution states, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
Hear that Obama...”the right of the people to keep and bear arms.”
The latest attempt by the U.N. (the Useless Nations) and the liberal global elitist gun-haters, including our President, Secretary of State, and Attorney General, is to try and include our privately owned civilian firearms in the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty. These miscreants want to place our guns and ammo in the same grouping with warships, attack helicopters, aircraft, tanks, submarines, military vehicles, missiles, ammunition and other weapons of war, in their attempt to place regulations on small arms import, export, transfer, brokering, and manufacture of conventional arms.
And they also want to “take the necessary legislative and administrative measures, to adapt, as necessary, (our) national laws and regulations to implement the obligations of this treaty.”
Give me a freakin’ break!
But what these UN jokers forget is that the United States of America is still a sovereign nation (the last time I checked it was anyway), and while the Useless Nations can bloviate all they want they really cannot tell the United States what they can and cannot do...unless, heaven forbid our elected officials do sell us out because they have NO backbone to stand up to Barack Hussein Obama.
Remember, in order for any treaty including treaties initiated by the Useless Nations to go into effect they must be ratified by two-thirds of the Senate and then get presidential approval. Uh-oh are we in trouble because in addition to our socialist loving Constitution trampling president, guess which party currently has control of the Senate...yup, the libertard gun-hating Democrats.
And here’s a little piece of information that needs remembering, The Arms Trade Treaty would fall under the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution (Article VI of the U.S. Constitution declares federal laws to have jurisdictional authority over state laws in the event there is conflict between laws established by two governing bodies, meaning that ALL treaties made under the authority of the US are the Supreme law of the land). This would have the power of a constitutional amendment and could allow for a repeal of the Second Amendment.
And sadly, adding to this is the wording of the proposed treaty itself, deliberately done in double-speak and misleading ambiguities, done so that an Obama ‘bought’ judge could eventually rule that constitutionally the treaty does indeed include our domestic firearms. And a ratified treaty, given constitutional adjudication by said judge, could end up meaning that any US made weapon that has any foreign workings that might someday be exported overseas or affects the overall arms market could be part of the international trade clause that’s covered by the treaty.
Bottom line... the United States must NOT sign this treaty and if Obama forces us to do so we must block the Senate from ratifying this abomination.
But all is not lost as there are ‘certain things’ we can do if this treaty does come to pass and it’s ruled that we must surrender our guns and ammo. We can say, oops, we ‘lost’ our gun somewhere....we can report to the police that our gun was ‘stolen’...or ‘We the People’ can do what Congress has NO guts to do...we can stand united as one and collectively shout loud and clear to both Barack Hussein Obama and the Useless Nations that you can stick it with your treaty because ‘We the People’ will NOT allow you to tell us what we can or cannot do with our Constitutionally given right ‘to keep and bear arms.’
And then we can tell the UN to pack up its gear, its delegates, its flag, and all its crap, and get the hell out of our country because from our cold dead hands will some namby-pamby bunch of UN trash tell ‘We the People’ what we can or cannot do with our guns, our Bibles, and our country.
Then on their way out we can tell them to please take Barack Hussein Obama, our country’s very own enemy within, with them!
