Obama Supports UN Gun Treaty That Hobbles 2nd Amendment

| April 2, 2013

The United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday signed off on a sweeping, first-of-its-kind treaty to regulate the international arms trade, brushing aside worries from U.S. gun rights advocates that the pact could lead to a national firearms registry and disrupt the American gun market.

The long-debated U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) requires countries to regulate and control the export of weaponry such as battle tanks, combat vehicles and aircraft and attack helicopters, as well as parts and ammunition for such weapons. It also provides that signatories will not violate arms embargoes, international treaties regarding illicit trafficking, or sell weaponry to countries for genocide, crimes against humanity or other war crimes.

With the Obama administration supporting the final treaty draft, the General Assembly vote was 154 to 3, with 23 abstentions. Iran, Syria and North Korea voted against it.

American gun rights activists, though, insist the treaty is riddled with loopholes and is unworkable in part because it includes “small arms and light weapons” in its list of weaponry subject to international regulations. They do not trust U.N. assertions that the pact is meant to regulate only cross-border trade and would have no impact on domestic U.S. laws and markets.

Critics of the treaty were heartened by the U.S. Senate’s resistance to ratifying the document, assuming President Obama sent it to the chamber for ratification. In its budget debate late last month, the Senate approved a non-binding amendment opposing the treaty offered by Sen. James M. Inhofe, Oklahoma Republican, with eight Democrats joining all 45 Republicans backing the amendment.

“The U.S. Senate is united in strong opposition to a treaty that puts us on level ground with dictatorships who abuse human rights and arm terrorists, but there is real concern that the Administration feels pressured to sign a treaty that violates our Constitutional rights,” Mr. Moran said. “Given the apparent support of the Obama Administration for the ATT, members of the U.S. Senate must continue to make clear that any treaty that violates our Second Amendment freedoms will be an absolute nonstarter for ratification.”

Mr. Inhofe likewise said Mr. Obama should take the Senate vote seriously.

    Once they place a gun crime before the International criminal court,UN judges will be setting precedence for gun laws and will bypass the congress and do away with the entire constitution.Ginsberg has already spoke about using international laws.This communist dictator wanabe will get his kingdom no matter how he has to break the law.

    I’m living in Canada – SO homesick! Canada signed on to this treaty today, too. Conservative Canadians are furious about it. This government had started a gun registry years ago: it was unworkable, unwieldy, expensive, and impossible to force every gun owner to comply. Finally, the Supreme Court said it was unconstitutional, and it was torn up. Many feel the UN treaty is just an end run around another gun registry, to make it easy to find the weapons when the black helicopters come. But Canadians have always won admiration from their allies as fierce fighters, and there is lots of talk of fighting, and of the Lord’s return. ALL of the events unfolding so rapidly can only convince us we are soon to be in the End Times. Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus.

    “No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. ” David Spangler of U.N.

    Sue’s not alone in referencing this “quote.” Sherry Shriner is a typical example:

    Those in the New World Order who are in control of most of the governments of the world already today declare that to become a citizen of this order will require a Luciferian oath.

    Accordingly those in the implementation stages proclaim:
    “No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian Initiation.”
