UN Wants to Take Our Gun Rights-‘Global Small Arms Treaty’

Posted on June 7, 2011


By Larry Bell…..It may not come as surprising news to many of you that the United Nations doesn’t approve of our Second Amendment. Not one bit. And they very much hope to do something about it with help from some powerful American friends. Under the guise of a proposed global “Small Arms Treaty premised to fight “terrorism”, “insurgency” and “international crime syndicates” you can be quite certain that an even more insidious threat is being targeted – our Constitutional right for law-abiding citizens to own and bear arms. What, exactly, does the intended agreement entail?

While the terms have yet to be made public, if passed by the U.N. and
ratified by our Senate, it will almost certainly force the U.S. to:

  1. Enact tougher licensing requirements, creating additional bureaucratic red
    tape for legal firearms ownership.
  2. Confiscate and destroy all “unauthorized” civilian firearms (exempting those
    owned by our government of course).
  3. 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).
  4. Create an international gun registry, clearly setting the stage for
    full-scale gun confiscation.
  5. 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
has pledged to push for Senate ratification.

Former U.N. ambassador John Bolton has cautioned gun owners to take this
initiative seriously, stating that the U.N. “is trying to act as though this is
really just a treaty about international arms trade between nation states, but
there is no doubt that the real agenda here is domestic firearms control.”
