Obama using the backdoor to push gun control

Obama's Coming Gun Control: Through the UN

Katie Pavlich

News Editor, Townhall

Right now the United Nations is meeting and negotiating in New York City. One of the treaties up for consideration and finalization is the Arms Trade Treaty, better known as the “Small Arms Treaty.” We’ve heard anti-Second Amendment groups like the Brady Campaign scream about how President Obama has done nothing to further domestic gun control, but their yelling is only a distraction from what the corrupt and dirty UN has been up to.

What does this treaty do? It doesn’t just control heavy weaponry used by our military but reaches right into the homes of gun owning Americans by controlling pistols, rifles and ammunition with the full backing of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and a readied signature from President Obama.

-Enact tougher licensing requirements, creating additional bureaucratic red tape for legal firearms ownership.

-Confiscate and destroy all “unauthorized” civilian firearms (exempting those owned by our government of course).

-Ban the trade, sale and private ownership of all semi-automatic weapons (any that have magazines even though they still operate in the same one trigger pull – one single “bang” manner as revolvers, a simple fact the ant-gun media never seem to grasp).

-Create an international gun registry, clearly setting the stage for full-scale gun confiscation.

In short, overriding our national sovereignty, and in the process, providing license for the federal government to assert preemptive powers over state regulatory powers guaranteed by the Tenth Amendment in addition to our Second Amendment rights.

Have no doubt that this plan is very real, with strong Obama administration support. In January 2010 the U.S. joined 152 other countries in endorsing a U.N. Arms Treaty Resolution that will establish a 2012 conference to draft a blueprint for enactment. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has pledged to push for Senate ratification.

Not only is the treaty written to limit the Second Amendment rights of Americans, rogue terrorism supporting regimes like Iran have been appointed to oversee it’s implementation.

Iran was elected to a top post on the UN Arms Trade Treaty conference, UN Watch revealed on Sunday. The Geneva-based human rights group is calling on UN chief Ban Ki-moon, who addressed the conference on the same day, to condemn the selection of the Tehran regime.

“Right after a UN Security Council report found Iran guilty of illegally transferring guns and bombs to Syria, which is now murdering thousands of its own people, it defies logic, morality and common sense for the UN to now elect this same regime to a global post regulating the transfer of guns and bombs,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, a non-governmental monitoring group based in Geneva.

“This is like choosing Bernie Madoff to police fraud on the stock market. And the U.N.’s scandalous choice of Iran is exactly why we fear that Syria’s declared bid for a U.N. Human Rights Council seat is not impossible.”

And Mexico, whose President Felipe Calderon called for the reinstatement of the Clinton era assault weapons ban during a joint session of Congress address in May 2010, is fully on board to "protect" its citizens who are getting mowed down in the streets daily by drug cartels because they can't legally protect themselves.

Mexico participated in the general debate of the UN Diplomatic Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), stating categorically that although countries need to access and use weapons, their trade and use cannot occur without any international legal responsibilities.

Regulating the international arms trade will be effective to the extent that the international community addresses the problem of the diversion of weapons to the illicit market. For Mexico, it is clear that the purpose of the treaty is to prevent the diversion and misuse of weapons, while seeking to ensure the protection of individuals.

And guess who has been helping enforce this treaty fresh off of trafficking thousands of weapons illegally into Mexico through Operation Fast and Furious? The Department of Justice and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives.

The good news is lawmakers are pushing President Obama not to sign the treaty and argue it does not have the best interests of the United States in mind.

“The UN's actions to date indicate that the ATT [united Nations Arms Trade Treaty] is likely to pose significant threats to our national security, foreign policy, and economic interests as well as our constitutional rights,” reads the letter, which was spearheaded by Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.). “The U.S. must establish firm red lines for the ATT and state unequivocally that it will oppose the ATT if it infringes on our rights or threatens our ability to defend our interests.”

The Arms Trade Treaty is nothing but an international effort to weaken America by taking away the right to bear arms from its citizens, setting us up for easy attacks. Remember why Japan didn't invade in WWII? Because they knew they'd get creamed by the world's largest army made up of U.S. citizens who own nearly 200 million guns.


U.N. Agreement Should Have All Gun Owners Up In Arms

As an Illinois state senator, Barack Obama was an aggressive advocate for expanding gun control laws, and even voted against legislation giving gun owners an affirmative defense when they use firearms to defend themselves and their families against home invaders and burglars. He also served on a 10-member board of directors of the radically activist anti-gun Joyce Foundation in Chicago during a period between 1998-2001when it contributed $18,326,183 in grants to anti-Second Amendment organizations.


From 2-27 July, all countries of the world will come together in New York to negotiate what is seen as the most important initiative ever regarding conventional arms regulation within the United Nations. A robust arms trade treaty can make a difference for millions of people confronted with insecurity, deprivation and fear.


Naturally the U.N. had to get one of the top state sponsors of terrorist activity on the committee.

Final push for global arms trade treaty begins at United Nations

The 193-member U.N. General Assembly is expected to approve the treaty, which has been in the works since 2006, when the U.S. voted against the resolution that launched the process. The Obama administration later reversed the George W. Bush administration’s position and supported an assembly resolution to hold this year’s four-week Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty.

Obama To Sign Anti-Second Amendment U.N. Gun

Posted 07/09/2012 07:10 PM ET

Second Amendment: The United Nations is putting the finishing touches on an Arms Trade Treaty that transcends borders and may even trample our Constitutional right to bear arms. Every indication is that the president will sign it.

Like the New Start and Law of the Sea treaties before it, as well as the Kyoto Protocol and Agenda 21, the Arms Trade Treaty being finalized at the U.N. this month is one of those feel-good, can't-we-all-get-along pieces of parchment whose net effect is to accomplish little except to eat away at American sovereignty and freedom.

Just as the world's worst human rights violators sat on and often chaired the U.N. Human Rights Council, Iran, arms supplier extraordinaire to America's enemies, was elected on Saturday to a top position on the United Nations Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty being held in New York. It began July 2 and extends through July 27.

This came right after the same U.N. found Iran guilty of illegally transferring guns and bombs to the murderous Syrian regime of Bashar Assad, currently slaughtering thousands of its own citizens as an impotent U.N. joins the U.S. administration in standing around and watching.

The mindset of the one-worlders preaches that guns cause crime and war and if we only get rid of those otherwise inanimate objects the evil that lurks in the hearts and minds of men will suddenly dissipate. Then we can buy the world a soft drink and sing "Kumbaya."

We are assured by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who enthusiastically backs the treaty, that it only deals with international trade and trafficking and does not affect our Second Amendment rights. How the treaty would have dealt with Operation Fast and Furious, the administration program that walked guns into the hands of Mexican drug cartels, she does not say.

We don't believe such assurances, given by an administration that has shown no respect for the U.S. Constitution and has a robust gun-control agenda of which Fast and Furious may have been a part. Its expansive view of its powers, recently ratified by a bizarre Supreme Court decision on ObamaCare, is supported by judges at all levels increasingly willing to incorporate international precedent and law in their decisions.

The treaty, which former Clinton adviser and political pundit Dick Morris believes President Obama will sign soon after it is completed, would seem to cover guns and weapons in the warm, live hands of private American citizens.

Last week, 125 members of Congress sent a letter to President Obama and Secretary Clinton warning that the treaty is "likely to pose significant threats to our national security, foreign policy and economic interests as well as our constitutional rights."

A paper by the U.N.'s Coordinating Action on Small Arms (CASA) notes that arms have been "misused by lawful owners" and says that the "arms trade therefore be regulated in ways that would ... minimize the misuse of legally owned weapons." Is defending your home against intruders a "misuse"?

Addressing the Conservative Political Action Conference last February, National Rifle Association Vice President Wayne LaPierre accused Obama of working behind the scenes with the U.N. on a "treaty that could effectively ban or severely restrict civilian ownership of firearms worldwide."

The treaty also establishes a bizarre moral equivalence between countries that trade arms to defend freedom and those that do so to suppress and extinguish it. Would such a treaty allow us to sell weapons to Taiwan or Israel?

Private ownership of firearms is a cornerstone of American liberty. If the people in places like Sudan and Syria had gun rights protected by their government and courts, would they be oppressed and slaughtered? We think not.

Let's protect our Second Amendment rights and not jeopardize them with a vague and misguided treaty.

That's why your guys came up with Fast and Furious isn't it.

Maybe that's why they don't want to actually exhibit some of that transparency he talked about so much when he was running for the presidency.

This regime is disgusting. If the majority and Congress do not align with their goals, they try to find a way circumvent the system and the Constitution.

You are correct. They are running roughshod over the checks and balances that are supposed to keep these things from happening. The ONE is the ultimate POST-AMERICA president. A citizen of the world. The ONE we have been waiting for! Disgusting is a very accurate description.

To be honest I think there is a little fear mongering on the whole gun issue. There is no way that a politician could get away with restricting guns. Now the point brought up in the UN is a valid concern.
