Indeed, the entire enterprise of ostensible U.N. Small arms “regulation” actually runs under the auspices of UNODA, the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs…
But surely you were in no confusion about the real agenda behind the ATT, the U.N. Small Arms Treaty, and the vital and urgent necessity to SHUT DOWN Obama Administration promotion of United States ratification of this coming-like-a-freight-train disarmament treaty?
If you WERE, here’s news. UNODA just released their press kit for the ATT conference, and it is a doozy. Included is a lengthy paper by the U.N.’s Coordinating Action on Small Arms (CASA) program entitled “The Impact of Poorly Regulated Arms Transfers on the Work of the U.N.”
This paper claims, as does the ATT itself, that the big problem with “arms violence” the world faces is a lack of agreed standards on arms transfers. Nonsense, of course:
One big problem the world faces in this regard is that many U.N. Member states are despotisms, dictatorships, supporters of terrorists, or simply incapable of controlling their own borders.
But the CASA paper insists that the job of the U.N. Is to make the case for a very broad treaty. As CASA puts it, “Advocacy efforts should be developed…through relevant reports and op-eds, messages, and statements at relevant meetings and to the press.” Here comes the U.S. Taxpayer-funded U.N. Propaganda!
Ominously, the ATT repeatedly ALSO signals that “the problem” is as much lawful ownership as it is the international arms trade. And although the U.N. Keeps protesting on the one hand that it “does not aim to impede or interfere with the lawful ownership and use of weapons” within member states, this CASA paper bluntly states that “United Nations agencies have come across many situations in which various types of conventional weapons have been…misused by lawful owners” and that the “arms trade must therefore be regulated in ways that would…minimize the risk of misuse of legally owned weapons.”
And just how, pray tell, would the ATT do that if it doesn’t “impede” or “interfere” with lawful ownership?
Clearly, those negotiating the U.N. Gun Treaty aren’t just concerned with lawful ownership; they are also campaigning against “community attitudes” that “contribute to the powerful cultural conditioning that equates masculinity with owning and using a gun, and regards gun misuse by men as acceptable.”
All this just further confirms that the U.N. Regards gun ownership – even under national constitutional protection and for lawful activities – as a dangerous cultural failure that it needs to redress under global governance, by international treaty that trumps our U.S. Constitution. The ATT will NOT abide the principle that self-defense is an inherent right, and our Second Amendment guarantees ARE DEEPLY IMPERILED BY THE U.N. GUN TREATY!
This strong emerging evidence further proves that the ostensible objectives of the U.N. Small Arms Treaty are mere camouflage, and the real purpose IS stealth gun control to gut our Second Amendment rights! STOP Obama from wasting millions of American tax dollars on negotiations to empower gun-grabbing globalists!
And according to additional analysis by the Heritage Foundation, if passed the U.N. Gun Treaty, officially titled the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) WILL INCREASE THE THREAT OF ARMED TERRORISM despite its proclaimed purpose to reduce the ability of terrorists to acquire weapons!
While the United Nations’ ATT has never focused exclusively on terrorism (after all, they want to grab YOUR guns more than anything else), terrorism is among the most often cited justifications for negotiating this international civilian disarmament.
Take the U.N. General Assembly’s Resolution 64/48, adopted on January 12, 2010, for example. It states that: “problems relating to the unregulated trade in conventional weapons… can fuel instability, transnational organized crime and terrorism.” Then on April 16 of this year, Assistant Secretary of State Thomas Countryman said that an ATT would “help prevent the acquisition of arms by terrorists and criminals.”
Sounds nice, doesn’t it? Well, don’t be fooled. This is just part of a SHAM to pull the wool over YOUR eyes and the eyes of every other legal gun owner in America.
Not only has the blithering United Nations never defined terrorism – but a definition of terrorism wouldn’t matter anyway, Heritage Foundation analysis reveals. “The ATT cannot prevent nations from arming terrorists if nations do not agree on who the terrorists are, or on what constitutes terrorism.”
YOU READ THAT RIGHT! The United Nations Arms Trade Treaty is so feckless and phony, it fails to identify terrorism, or even try to define it, never mind commit to its prevention! The ATT’s alleged purpose is a SHAM, A FRONT TO GRAB YOUR GUNS – NOT STOP TERRORISM! Let’s not forget, insofar as the dysfunctional U.N. is capable of ANY meaningful efforts, the Security Council has already “addressed” this issue!
Despite its pathetic, moral-relativist inability to agree on a definition of terrorism – in the aftermath of 9/11, U.N. Security Council Resolution 1373 passed unanimously on September 8, 2001 requiring ALL U.N. members to “take action against terrorism,” including “eliminating the supply of weapons to terrorists.”
The Security Council, which supposedly exists to maintain international peace and security, even has the authority to back up its resolutions using armed force – unlike the ATT, which will be based on national implementation with no means of enforcement whatsoever.
So, what possible need is there for yet another U.N. initiative on such contentious matters (“one government’s terrorist is another government’s freedom fighter”)? Why bother with the upcoming negotiations at a conference to be held July 2-27 in New York? Why chance increasing the risk of armed terrorism? …Because the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty isn’t about terrorism at all.
It’s about disarming civilians like you.
THE THUGS AT THE UN ARE UNSUSTAINABLE!
The United Nations in fact regularly legitimizes “approved” terrorism and their declarations regularly contain legalese to the effect that the U.N. recognizes “the right of self-determination of all peoples, taking into account the particular situation of peoples under colonial or other forms of alien domination or foreign occupation.”
This even applies to the U.S. and our allied presence in Iraq and Afghanistan, to justify the so-called “rights” of Hamas, Hezbollah, the Taliban, al-Queda factions and other mass-murdering terrorist groups to attack the United States of America and our foreign allies…
If the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty passes and contains – as it no doubt will – language to this effect, any “nation” or “liberation movement” that wishes to assist a terrorist organization could claim the right of all people to realize their self-determination against a government that did not respect this right – and the U.N. could do nothing about countries arming terrorist organizations to the gills!
The utter lack of enforcement muscle, failure of focus and absence of overall commitment by the U.N. to fight terrorism (as this treaty is falsely touted to do) proves this whole U.N. Arms Trade Treaty business is nothing more than a political scheme and façade to disarm American citizens. It is a dangerous, duplicitous Trojan horse imperiling our Second Amendment rights, and a waste of time, effort and our tax dollars in the fight against terrorism!
The obsolete UN failed their only charter from 68 years ago. It was for world peace. Isn’t that a laugh! They do not ever account for how all their billions are spent. Whistleblowers mysteriously jump off their buildings.
Now, we know the U.N. must appear ever-busy with meetings and conferences in order to ‘justify’ their paychecks in the eyes of taxpayers like you. After all, without funding from your U.S. tax dollrs, the United Nations would cease to exist, just like negotiations for the Arms Trade Treaty, or ‘Small Arms Treaty’ if you prefer, would cease to exist if ONLY our elected representatives would act!
Congress needs to ENACT legislation banning the use of taxpayer funds for U.N. They seek war and chaos never peace. They now seek remove our sovereignty and our 2nd amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
Keep the pressure on Washington to ENDORSE AND ENFORCE the REHBERG AMENDMENT of H.R. 2827 and the Second Amendment Sovereignty Act, S. 2205, in the Senate – and secure our Right to Arms!
When passed H.R. 2827 and S. 2205 will prohibit this current anti-gun rights ploy in the U.N., as well as block all future presidents from using “the voice, vote, and influence of the United States, in connection with negotiations for a United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, to restrict in any way the rights of United States citizens under the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, or to otherwise regulate domestic manufacture, assembly, possession, use, transfer, or purchase of firearms, ammunition, or related items, including small arms, light weapons, or related materials.”
Only by preserving our gun rights can we be free in the breach to stand our ground against the freedom-crushing “laws” and federal tyranny that imperil us… loss of liberty, corruption, and overspending that has bankrupted our national economy and our own checking accounts.
Very soon the United Nations will begin negotiations on the bill that attempts to destroy our Second Amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms AND bankrupt American gun manufacturers through costly regulation… UNLESS WE STOP IT NOW!
The proposed global “Small Arms Treaty” is cleverly premised to fight “terrorism,” “insurgency” and even “international crime syndicates” – but it goes much further…
In a nutshell, this is no less than an international gun-grab that works by overriding our national sovereignty.
The U.N. Gun Ban Treaty shreds the Tenth Amendment, as well as decimating our Second Amendment rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, by “authorizing” the federal government to assert itself (and its preemptive powers) over state regulatory prerogatives!
The Second Amendment Sovereignty Act, S. 2205, which will BAN U.S. funding of the United Nations Gun Ban negotiations, and PROTECT our Constitutionally protected right to arms. Without funding, the international conspiracy to rob us of our Second Amendment right to keep and arms will be stopped in its tracks!
The Obama administration is working hand-in-hand with the United Nations to ban the import and sale of firearms and ammunition around the world – including right here in the United States! The U.N.’s Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) is no less than an open attack on our Second Amendment rights, an assault on the Constitution of the United States of America, and Barack Hussein Obama’s backing and support of it amounts to no less than treason.
The preliminary conferences and pre-meetings are already out of the way, and the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty Conference will be held July 2-27 in CLOSED SESSIONS in New York City UNLESS WE ACT NOW! To defend our constitutional freedoms, conservative U.S. Sens. Jerry Moran and Rand Paul have introduced the Second Amendment Sovereignty Act, S. 2205, on Capitol Hill. But they desperately need our help as the Senate is still controlled by Obama’s Leftwing zealots, who are intent on disarming America!
S. 2205 reads:
No funds may be obligated or expended to use the voice, vote, and influence of the United States, in connection with negotiations for a United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, to restrict in any way the rights of United States citizens under the second amendment to the Constitution of the United States, or to otherwise regulate domestic manufacture, assembly, possession, use, transfer, or purchase of firearms, ammunition, or related items, including small arms, light weapons, or related materials.
Make no mistake: If the U.N. Small Arms Treaty passes, our guns are GONE.
This bill to protect YOUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS FROM THE GLOBALISTS, SOCIALISTS AND ONE-WORLDER DISARMERS OF THE U.N. will not pass without YOUR support. Together, we CAN stop this assault on our liberty, by cutting off the funding for the gun ban’s negotiations – but we must act TODAY to make sure law-abiding gun-owning Americans like you and I are not punished and stripped of our Right to Keep and Bear Arms by the anti-gun Obama administration!
Right now, the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations has been assigned S. 2205 for review and a committee vote. The best way to protect our gun rights from the U.N. gun grab is to make sure no deal on the ‘treaty’ is ever reached – but in the meantime, we need YOU to contact your Senators and Representatives and tell them TO STAND UP FOR YOUR GUN RIGHTS – NOT A U.N. SELL-OUT!
S. 2205 MUST be passed as a safety measure in the Obama/Harry Reid Senate, and only YOUR continuing support and hard work can make it happen!
Members of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations include: John Kerry (Chairman), Richard G. Lugar (Ranking Member), Barbara Boxer, Robert Menendez, Benjamin L. Cardin, Robert P. Casey Jr, Jim Webb, Jeanne Shaheen, Christopher Coons, Richard J. Durbin, Tom Udall, Bob Corker, James E. Risch, Marco Rubio, James M. Inhofe, Jim DeMint, Johnny Isakson, John Barrasso, and Mike Lee.
Remind them, and ALL THE CONGRESS, which controls “the power of the purse” to DEFUND THIS GUN GRAB and protect our Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms regardless of who is in the Oval Office!
With the full-backing of the Obama administration, the United Nations is one step closer to controlling your guns – announcing that the final terms for the ANTI-GUN Small Arms Treaty will be presented this July!
The United Nations Small Arms Treaty is a “peace charade” signed onto by the Obama administration as part of his anti-Second Amendment gun-grabbing agenda. And right now, the United Nations and Barack Obama are collaborating on a worldwide conspiracy to register, ban, and CONFISCATE YOUR GUNS!
You and I must do everything in our power to STOP this Obama scam from becoming a reality!
We’ve obtained a draft of the treaty wording… and it is conniving at its finest. The United Nations, with the full support of the Obama administration wants a “COMPREHENSIVE” arms trade treaty and they’re hoping to pass it under the banner of making the world a safer place…
NOTE: Here is the exact wording of the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty, thus far:
- “It must require States (countries – like the United States!) to assess the risk that serious violations of international humanitarian law and human rights law may be committed with the weapons being transferred. This may very well take away your individual rights to buy or sell a gun!
- Secondly, it must include within its scope all conventional weapons, including small arms.
- The treaty must also include ammunition within its scope.
- It must ensure that there are no loopholes by covering all types of transfers, including activities such as transit, trans-shipment, as well as loans and leases.”
Together, you and I MUST hold every elected official on Capitol Hill accountable for ensuring this abominable treaty IS NEVER RATIFIED by the United States – We MUST counter the anti-gun pressure taking over Capitol Hill, so right here and right now we need to get to work to fight the U.N. gun-grab!
Obama is keeping mum while on the campaign trail, but behind closed doors he and Hillary are working ‘Fast & Furious’ with the United Nations to destroy the Second Amendment for good. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced that the Obama administration is working “hand-in-glove with the United Nations” to pass this sickening gun-grabbing treaty that tramples on our Constitutional guarantee to keep and bear arms.
And don’t be fooled by noble pretenses. This drafted treaty has its sights set on using bureaucracy to target ALL conventional weapons and ALL ammunition – it targets free citizens, sports hunters and collectors along with the criminals.
Former United Nation’s ambassador John Bolton has cautioned gun owners about the Arms Trade Treaty and says the U.N. “is trying to act as though this is really just a treaty about international arms trade between nation states, but there’s no doubt that the real agenda here is domestic firearms control.”
I know I can count on you to tirelessly fight against the United Nations’ Small Arms Treaty, but we have to start fighting back against the anti-gun agenda before it gains more traction in the Left-controlled mainstream media. We must make sure the United Nations will never tell us AMERICAN gun owners what we can and cannot have – even if Barack Obama is more than happy to bow deeply to tyranny, click his heels and hand over our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
The United States is the largest exporter of weapons in the world; if we are not onboard, the whole effort falls apart and our Second Amendment Right to Bear Arms is safe once again. If we act right now, TODAY, we can defeat Obama’s efforts to CONFISCATE firearms owned by private citizens like YOU.
Unfortunately, the United States Senate (which ratifies international treaties) is STILL controlled by Leftwing zealots intent on disarming America. CONTACT EVERY UNITED STATES SENATOR to let them know you OPPOSE the United Nations Small Arms Treaty!
If passed by the U.N. (and ratified by the U.S. Senate) the U.N. “Small Arms Treaty” would FORCE sovereign national governments to:
- Make law-abiding citizens jump through even more bureaucratic hoops just to own a firearm legally by enacting tougher licensing requirements;
- Confiscate and destroy all “unauthorized” firearms owned by non-government entities;
- BAN the trade, sale and private ownership of ALL semi-automatic weapons;
- Create an INTERNATIONAL gun registry, setting the stage for full-scale gun CONFISCATION.
Obama is hiding behind the U.N. The U.N. Small Arms Treaty is no less than a worldwide takeover of your guns, and it is being directly supported by the Obama administration in order to control YOU and ABOLISH YOUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS!
The goal of this U.N. Small Arms Treaty is to BAN and SEIZE firearms owned by YOU – a private law-abiding citizen. Judging by this past week’s committee at the United Nations, they are right on schedule to begin grabbing your guns by the end of this year.
The Second Amendment guarantees your fundamental right to self protection, and is America’s bulwark against tyranny and oppression. Tell your representatives in Congress and the Senate it MUST NOT be abridged!
