Brown: UN Gun Control Treaty Will Kill Second Amendment

By Floyd and Mary Beth Brown

"Representatives from many of the world's socialist, tyrannical and dictatorial regimes [are gathering] at the United Nations headquarters in New York for a month-long meeting, in which they'll put the finishing touches on an international Arms Trade Treaty that could seriously restrict your freedom to own, purchase and carry a firearm," warns Chris Cox, the executive director of the NRA's Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA).

It's happening right now. The member states of the United Nations have been meeting, behind closed doors with Hillary Clinton, since July 2nd to hammer out the final details on their so-called Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) and Barack Obama, has vowed to sign it on July 27th.

If you're not worried, you should be. Cox goes on to say: "You might think that something so obviously menacing to one of our enumerated fundamental rights would receive a strong rebuke from our top government leaders. But you'd be wrong. This is President Barack Obama's vision for America, and we're expected to just go along with it."

Make no mistake, your constitutional and God-given right to keep and bear arms may forever be regulated and controlled by thugs within the United Nations.

As a matter of policy, President George W. Bush not only opposed the ATT, but also proclaimed that the United States would have no involvement with the planning or implementation of the ATT. He wanted no part of this treasonous treaty.

As Bloomberg news reported, under the Bush Administration, the United States "was the only nation to oppose the 2006 resolution to create an international treaty on the sale of small arms and light weapons, and subsequent measures to continue the talks."

But the times, they are a changing. Instead of following President Bush's example and saying, from the get-go, that this voluntary surrender of our constitutional rights will ever see the light of day; Senate Republicans are taking more of a 'let's-wait-and-see-what-the-UN-comes-up-with' approach.

And while Republicans procrastinate, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are legitimizing and actively negotiating something that is illegitimate, a treaty the United States should never be negotiating in the first place.

Make no mistake, our elected officials like to talk tough. As a matter of fact, a number of Senators penned a strongly worded letter on ATT to Barack Obama last year, and they even went so far as to say that they would "oppose ratification of an Arms Trade Treaty presented to the Senate that in any way restricts the rights of law-abiding citizens to manufacture, assemble, possess, transfer or purchase firearms, ammunition and related items."

Don't be lulled into complacency by the tough-sounding rhetoric. Words are cheap and anyone who knows how the UN operates knows that its S.O.P. is deception. The ATT will, without a doubt, contain written promises and grandiose assurances and the UN will assure far too many Senate Republicans that the ATT will in no way restrict your right to legally own a firearm.

Once the ATT is signed and ratified our own government, under the supervision of the thugs of the United Nations, will start to "regulate" and, soon thereafter, start to "confiscate." Don't take our word for it. Former UN ambassador John Bolton, says that the UN "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."

    Why not wait and see what they are taking about instead of guessing.
    what they might or might not try to do. People that do the crimes do not get their guns legal, they get them by other means. Find out first Then go from there. Right now it is just a bunch of people trying to make others scared they will lose their guns The only guns we have that are registered are hand guns, The others are not, no way they could trace all the rifles. put your hat on and think for yourself. I don’t even think they would try. We do need to get some of the violence out of movies, games, and books. Stop putting so much on the air and pictures of them all over. It is people wanting their picture all over for people to know them, stupid, but true and then the others doing these things, are mental . If didn’t have a gun would use knife’s etc. Are they going to just give out or let people have cotton *****.There are other countries that don’t allow their people to have guns, but their citizens still get shot, or killed with knife’s. I for sure wouldn’t want to go after a person that had a gun with a billy club.

      ellen65761 — you are not informed on what the U.N. has been attempting to do with this treasonous treaty. It is already known what the U.N. is after. Much of their agenda is to regulate privately owned firearms in the U.S. You are wrong about registration in that every firearm sold by a FFL licensed dealer is documented on the BATF yellow form. These forms can be used to trace the original owner of any firearm, (handgun, rifle, shotgun)sold by a licensed dealer. You state that they cannot trace all the rifles and you are correct, but if ownership is criminalized, what then? There is no time to take a wait and see approach. This treaty needs to be killed immediately and politicians like Obama and Hillary Clinton destroyed politically for their treasonous behavior.

      Pelosi – We have to pass Obamacare to see what’s in it! You are saying that we need to wait to see what they are going to do regarding gun control after they pass the ATT? Well, we know what Obama wants to do and is doing. Dictators like Obama always want to take away the people’s ability to defend themselves. We cannot continue to act like ostriches with our heads in the sand and pretend that Obama and the democrat/progressives/liberals will allow us to keep our weapons to defend ourselves if they can take them away. The people of the United States cannot trust the present goverment. There is nothing wrong with the form of government itself. The people in it must be replaced.

      It still must be approved by 2/3 of the Senate. I doubt if this will come to a vote before the election. Any Senator voting in favor of it would be committing political suicide. If it comes to a vote at all, it will be during the Lame Duck Session after the election. That will depend on how many Senators loose reelection. The losers may vote for the treaty as a way to get back at the people who voted them out of office. Assuming it passes, the people will have to be disarmed. Enforcement will be difficult at best. To disarm the people, the ATF will have to go door to door and they don’t have the manpower to do it alone. They will need help and a lot of it. I don’t think they will be able to get that help from a majority of our military or local police either. There are a few foot kissers that will be eager to help in this but I still don’t believe that help will come from the majority of our military. A large amount of our active military troops are overseas. If the gun confiscation starts I believe that Obama will leave them stranded overseas. Our real strength is still in our National Guard and Reserve components. Many of them, along with the local police, are also very active members of their communities and I don’t think they would take up arms against their friends, family or neighbors. I also think that relocating them to other states would not work either. I strongly believe that they would go as far as to join their fellow Americans against the gun confiscators. With all the guns in this country, registered or unregistered it would be very difficult to locate them. I am sure the President and his followers are well aware of this and will request help from the United Nations. The UN would gladly send troops from China, Iran and North Korea, to name a few, and for the first time since the War of 1812, we would again be fighting foreign troops on our soil. Our, so called, NATO Allies will be unwilling or powerless to help us. They may also have no choice but to join the UN forces. It would be a bloodbath. I strongly believe that the people who will be kicking down our doors looking for guns will not be American troops.

      @kevink – I would recommend you read (or re-read) the Constitution.

      Article VI, para 2, clause 2, “and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land;”

      Yes, treaties can and do supercede the Constitution as written or amended. This is a BAD treaty! Nullify the 2nd Amendment and all others become fair game.

    Our founders added the 2nd Amendment for 1 main purpose… So that “We the People” would have the means to protect ourselves from an oppressive and tyrannical government…

    Even though Switzerland is a socialist country, at least they have 1 thing right… Arm your people and train them how to use their weapons!

    The people of America have become too apathetic and passive… “We the People” have forgotten that “Freedom is NOT Free”! We must be vigilant to defend our LIBERTY, our FREEDOM and our way of life… We need to return to the foundational principles that made this country great!

    Apathy is NOT one of them!

    The Senate would be fools (bigger fools, that is ) to the ratify before the 2012 elections. If they did the 2010 elections would look like a picnic compared to the decimation the Senate Dems would receive for the ratifying the treaty.

    After the elections it might be a different story.

    That’s another reason this election is so much more than the economy. What economy could there possibly be without the 2nd Amendment?

      and by the way!

      then different article,

      Israel will act “decisively and without hesitation or restraint” if Syria transfers any chemical weapons to the terrorist organization Hezbollah, Israel’s Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman declares.

      Liberman also said Syria’s transfer of chemical weapons to Hezbollah would be a “justification for war.”

    Restricting lawful citizens from owning guns would leave them completely under the control of those intent on evil, because you know darn well the bad guys would find ways to own guns and ammo, laws or no laws. The only thing that needs to be done is to implement some kind of computer program that keeps track of large gun/ammo purchases… there’s no way that can’t be accomplished in this day and age of computers. And as one law abiding old lady who firmly believes in our Constitution and the Second Amendment, there is no way I’m turning over my right to defend myself. I refuse to let ‘the powers that be’ take away anyone else’s right, either. Legal ownership of guns is what is going to keep our country free and strong…give them up, and you’re going to give it all up. Think, people!

    The President of the United States has sworn to uphold (protect and defend) the Constitution. If he wishes to restrict the individual right to keep and bear arms, which “shall not be infringed” according to the exact words of the Second Amendment, then he is guilty of High Treason, and must be tried by the Senate. Any Senator who votes for such a Treaty is also guilty of Treason. If the Senate votes to honor a Treaty in conflict with the Constitution, then he has defied the highest Law of the Land. Why do these people do this? -Because the ONLY legal way to eliminate individual rights granted by the Second Amendment is to repeal it. They haven’t tried that, because they know they couldn’t make that happen. So they try to fool the masses. Let’s get the masks off of them, and remove them from office.

    In some parts of our world. dictators are arming young teens to enforce their rules. In many cases, the arms are provided by nations who have nothing to lose by taking money to equip armies who enforce a long list of vicious, corrupt reigns of terror and abuse. An international treaty to control the traffic of arms appears to be a method by cooperating nations to reduce the numbers of such infamous dictators who are the stuff of news-casts daily.

    I am further aware of the belligerence and militancy of those who routinely claim the Constitutional right to threaten armed revolt if the government attempts to participate in such a treathy.

    If their prediction as to their conduct is indeed a “call to arms,” they should first google up “Lidice” to see how the government they foresee would react to their rebellion.

      Haleaton — A treaty focused toward prevention of corrupt reigns of terror and abuse would be a good thing. Unfortunately for America, there is evidence that shows Obama and Hillary Clinton supporting this treaty knowing that private ownership of firearms will take a severe hit. Both of these politicians have a history of extreme gun control.

      Your statement about some claiming a Constitutional right to threaten armed revolt for participation in the arms control treaty seems suspect. I am calling your hand on this. Who exactly are you talking about? I know of no group that has made the national news threatening anything like you have stated.

      Then why IS the NRA so adamant about the treaty?

      The National Rifle Association has demanded that the United Nations leave civilian weapons out of a treaty on international arms sales that it is negotiating this month.

      Wayne LaPierre, the group’s CEO, warned Wednesday that the treaty won’t pass Congress if it does include restrictions on civilian arms, as this would trump Americans’ right to bear arms under the Second Amendment, The Hill reports.

      He said 58 senators have promised to oppose a treaty, that covers civilian weapons. A U.N. treaty would need approval from two-thirds of the Senate to become law in the United States.
      “I am here to announce NRA’s strong opposition to anti-freedom policies that disregard American citizens’ right to self-defense. No foreign influence has jurisdiction over the freedoms our Founding Fathers guaranteed to us,” LaPierre said at the U.N Arms Trade Treaty Conference.

      “The only way to address NRA’s objections is to simply and completely remove civilian firearms from the scope of the treaty. That is the only solution. On that, there will be no compromise.

      If the NRA is concerned, I’m concerned!

    “As a matter of policy, President George W. Bush not only opposed the ATT, but also proclaimed that the United States would have no involvement with the planning or implementation of the ATT. He wanted no part of this treasonous treaty.”

    That is all fine and dandy but he and his father supported UN Agenda 21.

    PATRIOT

    My fear is that this arrogant clabberhead will over ride Congress by executive order and we’ll be in the damn thing, vote or no vote.

    He would like to be King and I’m not sure we can stop him…legally.

    “UN Gun Control Treaty Will Kill Second Amendment” No it won’t: “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” Just like all of the other gun laws we’re forced to work within they are UNConstitutional.

      I say again! Article 6, para 2, clause 2, “and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land;”

      @bcbailey63,
      Ah, but the Amendments are not part of the body of the Constitution, and so do not apply, the Bill of Rights overrides article 6. In any event, like the communists in Washington if we don’t like that law or clause we’ll just ignore it like immigration laws, or that a Candidate for high office must be a Natural Born Citizen. It’s just inconvenient lets forget it lah dee dah.

      http://www.westernjournalism.com/dems-admit-obama-not-eligible-dont-care/

      They’ve broken way more than enough laws to not have the right to enter into treaty agreements. The communist DNC at large and your undocumented communist president should be impeached and tried for crimes of high treason.

      SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED!

    This would be a conflict in law. The Constitution FOR the United States OF America is the ‘supreme’ law of the land and can only be amended by a very definite process. The Bill of Rights, which is actually a Bill of prohibitions acting against the federal government, falls within the amendment process. Unfortunately the average American is ignorant when it comes to understanding how the American system is supposed to operate. A Treaty is not the proper amending process and has no standing to affect the “Second Amendment.”

    “It is not the function of our government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the government from 
falling into error.” — U.S. Supreme Court in American Communications Association v. Douds 339 U.S. 382, 442 (1950)

    It means that Treaties can supersede state laws but not U.S. laws or the Constitution.

    It is clear with a little analysis of the details of the language and grammar used to construct this clause that our Founders were placing treaty law in its rightful place – beneath the supreme law of the land in the form of our U.S. Constitution, but above the laws and constitutions of the states. There is no loophole that can allow international interests to trump the U.S. Constitution, but the treaty must be made in pursuance of our Constitution, just as all laws that Congress makes must be in pursuance of the Constitution.

    While some well-meaning (and not-so-well-meaning) politicians may claim that they can legislate via treaty, this clearly was not the intent of our Founders. Will this knowledge stop those who would seek to take our freedoms from shredding the Constitution by attempting to pass such treaties? Probably not. But we can rest firm in the knowledge that our Founders did not give the Federal government the power to usurp the Constitution by treaty, and that the Constitution is the supreme law of the land, not treaty law. More importantly, we can use this knowledge as intellectual firepower to stop the enemies of liberty and the Second Amendment from doing so.

    “The only constitutional exception to the power of making treaties is that it shall not change the Constitution…” – Alexander Hamilton

    “I do not conceive that power is given to the President or the Senate to dismember the empire, or alienate any great, essential right. I do not think the whole legislative authority to have this power.” – James Madison

    “I say the same as to the opinion of those who consider the grant of treaty-making power to be boundless. If it is, then we have no Constitution.” – Thomas Jefferson

    THINK THINK THINK PEOPLE ! We need a Congress that will abolish the BATF and leave the U.N. Tomorrow. Take the vote away from all who are on welfare. Abolish all Federal Immigration and Gun Laws and turn that authority over to the States. One 6 year term for everyone in Washington. Anyone with a Law degree is disqualified from serving in the Legislative and Executive branches of government. Do these things and we’ll take back our country.
