Why The U.N. Arms Trade Treaty Is A Bad Idea

26 May


First, let me be honest.  I’m not a constitutional scholar, and I need to read the treaties more thoroughly.  (But I’m not a constitutional lawyer either,  so that’s a plus.)  People will argue it does not violate any constitutional rights directly, and that may be true, I need to look closer.  But that is not what I’m arguing.

The bottom line is that it is a treaty with the United Nations; a corrupt global organization, guilty of atrocious human rights violations across the world, often against those they are supposed to be helping.  The U.N., as well as many other NGOs, are organizations that openly call for the abolition of private property.  Although many people insist Agenda 21 was abandoned long ago, and was only a treaty, therefore inferior to the U.S. Constitution,  they have failed to take into account gradualism.  When the U.S. implements U.N. policies, they do so incrementally under new laws created by the U.S. government.  They don’t name the bills “U.N. Gun Grabbing” or “Agenda 21,” but MAP-21 and SafeFlight 21 are a bit obvious, though some may feel they have nothing to do with one another.  (A new transportation system will be sold to us under the guise of sustainable development, promoting  resource efficiency and safety.  It may do those things, but it will also further encroach on your privacy and right to be responsible for every day decisions.)

The U.N. is anti-gun ownership, this is not a secret.  If this treaty passes, we will be seeing more gun control legislation.  Why would U.S. lawmakers who support U.N. gun policies pass a law that inches them closer to their goal, then stop trying to pass more?

Let us not forget that we have an administration with high-ranking officials, such as Attorney General Eric Holder, who is criminally involved in the “Fast and Furious” scandal, aka conspiracy (no, not theory).  The Obama administration is openly anti-gun, and there is a fair chance that they will be around for another four years, and there’s no guarantee that Romney wouldn’t allow further implementation of gun control.  We don’t need to be signing more U.N. treaties allowing unelected officials from foreign nations to influence our gun control policies.  If laws bending us towards the U.N.’s agenda are put into place gradually, it is possible for our consitutional rights to be violated without repercussion.  We have to wake up.  Why would we trust the U.N. or our government?

Barack Obama on Gun Control, 2008.  Come on now, this is the answer of someone who is anti-gun but trying to get elected.  Why do people try to defend this?  I do appreciate his use of the term “mentally deranged” over the government’s “mentally defective” label.  (Sarcasm, they’re both demeaning.)

Eric Holder 1995: “Brainwash” people to change the way they think about guns.    He wants to include ad agencies to develop commercials using athletes, entertainers and community leaders in which they say “it is wrong to carry a gun.”

Hillary Clinton on Gun Control

“A month after the Columbine shootings, Bill & I went to Littleton Colorado to visit with the families of victims & survivors. The Columbine tragedy was not the first, nor the last, episode involving gun violence at an American high school. But it ignited a call for more federal action to keep guns out of the hands of the violent, troubled and young–a lethal combination. Bill and I announced a proposal to raise the legal age of handgun ownership to 21, and limit purchases of handguns to one per month.

“We will not make progress on a sensible gun control agenda unless the entire American public gets behind it. It is really important for each of you [kids] to make sure you stay away from guns. If you have guns in your home, tell your parents to keep them away from you and your friends and your little brothers and sisters.”

“We have to do everything possible to keep guns out of the hands of children, and we need to stand firm on behalf of the sensible gun control legislation that passed the Senate and then was watered down in the House. It does not make sense for us at this point in our history to turn our backs on the reality that there are too many guns and too many children have access to those guns-and we have to act to prevent that.”

Notice she didn’t just say, “Children have too much access to guns.”  She comes out and says “there are too many guns.

“As part of a “zero tolerance” policy for weapons, drugs, and other threats to the safety of teachers and students, the President signed an executive order decreeing that any student who comes to school with a gun will be expelled and punished as a condition of federal aid.”

Federal laws mandating school expulsion seem like an overreach to me.  Besides, the government has already done a good enough job making the schools and those who run them into mindless boot-lickers and tattletales; I have no worries that they wouldn’t expel the child.

Ironically, Hilary voted no on

A bill to prohibit civil liability actions from being brought or continued against manufacturers, distributors, dealers, or importers of firearms or ammunition for damages, injunctive or other relief resulting from the misuse of their products by others. Voting YES would:

  • Exempt lawsuits brought against individuals who knowingly transfer a firearm that will be used to commit a violent or drug-trafficking crime
  • Exempt lawsuits against actions that result in death, physical injury or property damage due solely to a product defect
  • Call for the dismissal of all qualified civil liability actions pending on the date of enactment by the court in which the action was brought
  • Prohibit the manufacture, import, sale or delivery of armor piercing ammunition, and sets a minimum prison term of 15 years for violations
  • Require all licensed importers, manufacturers and dealers who engage in the transfer of handguns to provide secure gun storage or safety devices
  • Reference: Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act; Bill S 397 ; vote number 2005-219 on Jul 29, 2005

Fast and Furious was not a friendly plan that went wrong.  If you believe this, you are incorrect.  It was a plan to undermine the second amendment.  It was a secret.  It was not supposed to ever be public.  There are emails, statements,  audio, and video to back this up.
