Gun Control, Hillary Clinton, Obama and The UN Arms Trade Treaty

President Barack Obama has now brought America into the negotiations after the Bush administration voted against them.

Partners in Crime Against the 2nd Amendment

The UN Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) is now being conducted behind closed doors with finalization expected in July and implementation expected by the end of this year. Obama and his administration are in full support of ATT as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton leads international gun control.

From the independent.co.uk - The global arms trade, which produces two bullets for every person on the planet every year and the weapons that kill 1,500 people each day, is facing the first worldwide effort to control it. An unprecedented treaty that would attempt to restrict arms sales is expected to be drawn up at talks in the United Nations this week.

Negotiators at the UN will begin their final week of talks to agree on the terms of the treaty before world leaders gather in July to vote on it.

London Foreign Office minister Alistair Burt conceded yesterday that there would have to be compromises” during the negotiation of the final treaty, stating, “Securing an arms trade treaty is a priority for this Government and we have made that clear since we came into office. It must be robust. We will not support a weakened treaty. We want it to cover all conventional arms and their munitions.”   

Once the treaty is signed, those who do not meet its terms will be liable for prosecution under international law.

A report from the Heritage Foundation, has outlined why YOU, the United States should be concerned.

  • The U.S. position is that the ATT should not include hunting weapons. Unfortunately, many major countries have made it clear that they want the treaty to include these weapons. The draft paper notes that the ATT will cover, inter alia, small arms, light weapons, their parts or components, ammunition, and equipment used to develop, manufacture, or maintain any of these items. It does not exclude hunting weapons. This is avowedly unacceptable to the U.S. The draft also does not exclude sporting firearms or other small arms that could conceivably have a military use but are actually for self-protection, such as revolvers.
  • The scope of the treaty—which controls everything from rifle scopes to battleships, as well as the technology necessary for their production—means it would be unenforceable without a very substantial expansion of federal authority. The U.S. should not sign treaties that are so broad that their impact cannot be precisely understood, and the ATT would affect every individual and U.S. business that deals in any way with any conventional weapon. Such a treaty could not meaningfully be subject to advice and consent by the Senate.
  • The draft paper requires nations to “maintain records of all imports and shipments of arms that transit their territory” and notes that these records may contain information about the type of arms transferred and their “end users.” This information is to be reported to the treaty’s international Implementation Support Unit, along with the “national legislation or other measures used to regulate or control the items and transactions.” The draft treaty thus views the collection and international reporting of the identities of selected individual firearms owners—the “end users”—as constituting the best practice of treaty compliance. It also appears to suggest the creation of an international gun registry for all firearms that are either imported into or transit national territory.
  • The Senate uses reservations to define and limit the effect of a ratified treaty. The draft paper states that reservations “incompatible with the object and purpose” of the treaty are forbidden. This is a common clause, but in the context of this treaty, it raises special concerns.

The underlying philosophy of the treaty is that arms transfers between U.N. member states are presumptively legitimate, while private arms transfers are problematic and should be subject to national regulation.

 

 The UN Arms Trade Treaty is simply GLOBAL GUN CONTROL!

    THE SAME PEOPLE WHO WOULD PASS THIS LAW WOULD HAVE APPLAUDED THESE VILE AND CRUEL PEOPLE IN THE WORLD!!!!!

    I don’t own a gun, but everyone that wants one should have the right to get one if they want. I have my eye on a nice sword myself.

    A word of caution…. NEVER bring a knife to a gunfight….just sayin.

    I will defend my right to own my guns, and a BIG problem from a large number of American Patriots if the gubmunt tries to take them. Simple answer to a simple minded problem.

    The Constitution relies on honorable people serving in political office to not violate their oath to protect and defined the Constitution.. their willful treason shows how honorable our present domestic enemies are. They are prohibited by their oath and Constitutional restrictions from signing any treaty that violates any part of it.

    I would presume that any foreign or domestic individuals or collectives acting to comply with enforcing any UN contrivance would be met with immediate opposition making blue hats, badges or patches a stupid accessory.

    I can’t believe what is happening. We in the USA have the right to bare arms according to the Constitution. When I look what is happening to my America it scares me to death. I do not recognize the USA anymore. Socialism, Marxism or Communism. Sounds like we are doomed. (sorry for any misspellings)

    We believe that everyone has the right to voice their opinion on any of the matters facing our freedoms and nation. I would welcome your facts that support your opinion. However a statement that simply proclaims an opinion doesn’t carry much weight in a debate on any issue.

    Guns, guns and more guns. how the h*** are you expect to defend yourself against the government that gets too big. guns, guns, guns duh. its the second amendment of our constitution. the founding fathers of our constitution saw this coming and gave us the right to defend ourselves using guns. its my right and I!m protected by the second amendment not some sneaky under the table un treaty the american people have no say in. its bull**** now how do we stop this dictatorship and imperialistic government?

    We stop this dictatorship by getting involved, through education of the masses, by working together and exercising our right to vote them out of office. Politicans love power and we have the ability to take that power away from them. Instead of being angry, get even! Work for and support candidates that truly love this country. Vote with your pocketbook – companies are in business to make money – don’t buy their products or services and let them know why. Victory begins with taking the first step. While we may lose a few battles, persistance wins the WAR!

    they can try to take my arms, but Messing with a Texans constitutional rights is not advised. Our founding fathers must be rolling in their graves that we are letting these communist liberal rule us all under a Dictatorship. those of you that put obama in power- i hope you take pride in your direct contribution in destroying this country.

    Our freedom is gone. Our voice is ignored. Our possessions no longer belong to us.

I will now go out and buy at least four military grade wepons ( good luck trying to track them )!!!!!! and high powered ammo to go with them, and i will not make the mistake of not having enough ammo. If they do make the mistake of trying to collect wepons across this country, I not only will defend but will go on offence. We the people need to vote this Commie, Pinko, PIG out of office NOW.PS: Don’t for get how effective IED’S were in Iraq. They think we are stupid,and I truley hope and beleve they will under estimate us and our resolve.

    Almost every person in the world owes his or her livelihood to a gun. However the gun itself did nothing to give you your freedom and your bill of rights. It was the Patriot that held that gun that gave you this great country of ours. Our guns are not the real issue here, having the Government be in control of your every movement is. That is the beauty of the 2nd amendment. It give us the right to bare arms against the Tyranny of our own government if necessary. Hillary, Odama, Pelosi, Reid and NATO are the beginnings of this tyranny.

    Who does the United Nations think they are to try and impose such restrictions on the United States anyway?
    Why are we even entertaining such foolishness? Why in the hell are we even negotiating with any foreign body about gun control/regulation in the United States?
    The Constitution was created in America by the founding fathers,and under the constitution we are guaranteed rights.So again I ask the question” Who does the United Nations think they are to just all of a sudden impose gun control/gun restrictions on the United States?” and” Why in the hell are we even entertaining such foolishness like this in the first place?”
    I wholeheartedly believe in the Constitution and the Second Amendment and I will not lie down and allow ANYONE to take my gun.Its my right and I’m going to exercise my rights.
    DON’T TREAD ON ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My home is protected by Remington, Winchester, Smith & Wesson. It will be a cold day in Hell before they take my guns away. My family is made up of ranchers, farmers & military raised to provide food and protect our families with these guns. I’ll defend my 2nd Amendment rights to the bitter end. Side note: we are not entertaining these ideas- Hillary Clinton and our Presidant of these United State Borack Obama are entertaining these ideas. Legal or not legal- the bad guys will ALWAYS have their guns to use against all of us average American citizens.

    we as a people have a responsibility to our country to defend it from all enemies foreign and domestic and that includes our own government. If we as a people do not feel the government is acting and working as they should we have the responsibilities to overthrow said government and regain our country.our people came to america to get away from the european bureaucracy. why are we trying to sign treaties with them to control us again. we need to rise up and take control of OUR country again.

    I think we as Americans have been missing the point for some time and I side with many others that we have allowed our govrenment get to the point that it is running us rather than us running the govrenment, first we had the IRS with broad powers to sieze the american citizens property, then Home land security (GESTAPO) has the authority to arrest you & me with no case, hold us without charge. Thomas Jefferson said it best, if the govrenment is big enough to give you everything it is big enough to take it.

Long live the 1st & 2nd ammendment. Stand UP AMERICA rid your selvs of these socialist dictators before they enslave us all. THERE IS POWER IN THE BALLOT BOX. If that fails to rid us of then then maybe a little lead poisining is in order for a few to show force

    The united states of America’s bill of rights has no business being used as a bargaining tool by Barack Hussein Obama (African born) and Hillary rhodium Clinton two people who are as un American besides bill who gave us NAFTA as i have ever seen are using.These rights belong to the republic, or has everyone forgot the pledge of aligence . Rember oboma promised change then turned right around and hired john mcain and hillary clinton same old thing he fooled you didnt he.

    So far it is apparent that all of the prior respondants are frightened ignorant paranoid individuals who lack respect and think that by shooting at something they will get respect. The Constitution was written by people, not by God. Intelligent rational people can change it if the populous that it was written for no longer possesses the maturity to understand the intent of the original law. Today’s society is too immature and too irresponsible to be allowed the privilege that comes with the complicated intent of the 2nd Amendment. What you all percieve as your Freedom, you would inflict on a civil society as evidenced by the 15,000 gun related deaths and 100,000 gun related injuries in the US each year. Americans and their “freedom” to possess and use their weapons has literally become the death of America. You’re killing us. When the Constitution was written, people made their own ammunition. Gun ownership should be allowed..just not ammunition unless you make your own. If you are as smart as they were then, fine. If you can’t do it, then tough. Good parenting includes teaching their children what’s right and what’s wrong. If they don’t learn, they shouldn’t be allowed to do certain things. You’re not supposed to drive a car until you learn, prove you’ve learned and get licensed and then get insurance to protect in case of an accident. Until you are mature enough to learn that passing an educational program, getting licensed and having insurance only makes sense for gun ownership, you shouldn’t be allowed to have one. Start to act and express yourselves as intelligently as the Constitution writers and then maybe you’ll deserve to own a gun. Right now you’re all just a bunch of loose cannons.

    The intent of the framers of the Constitution is evident in their writings. Perhaps if you actually read something other than liberal publications you might discover that the 2nd Amendment was a guarantee that America would stay free. It is obvious that you got your gun related deaths and injuries figures from some gun control group. The last compiled statistics from an unbiased source in 2010 showed that there were 12,996 murders in the U.S. and of that only 8,775 were from firearms. While any death is sad, the majority of these murders were committed by criminals, not the 273 million honest law abiding gun owners. You might also find it interesting to know that States with the most strict gun control laws had the highest murder rate. In comparison, there are between 33,000 and 43,000 auto deaths each year and unless I am mistaken, all Americans are required to be licensed to drive.

    Guns save lives. A study by the Cato Institution reported that tens of thousands of crimes are prevented each year by ordinary armed citizens. Another independent study showed that between 800,000 to 2 million Americans used guns for defensive purposes. A 1993 study by the Florida State University found that 2 million women used a gun to defend themselves against sexual attackers.

    If you prefer to face a criminal unarmed, that is your right. But for the rest of us, we prefer to stand on equal ground and defend ourselves. Who knows, someday some “loose canon” may actually prevent your death.

    If you want to get their attention on a certain date before the election all of us should got to our employer and stop having taxes taken out of our checks. You’ll see that the government does’t care about what we want, just the upper 1%. But if you don’t have money you can’t pay the UN, foreign PUCKS and these slime ball house, senate and president. It is sure funny how this government acts like a spoil kid that wants evrything and want you to pay for it. The only way to stop these spoiled kids is to cut their money off. You’ll see how fast they do a one eighty. If you don’t have money to pay your debts, Oh well!!! Also if china owns so much of the US debts they will want a piece of the US. You can thank hillay for that, but not is lost! I didn’t sign that paper and I didn’t get a kick back. So. guess what Hillary Obama Rommey MACain and all you other low lifes can pay it back to china all the money you have stolen from the AMERICAN People. You can’t make your happiness on the misery of others. time to be held accountible. POWER to The PEOPLE. Oh by the way just try and takes my guns!! food for thought!!!! Peace!
