The fate of the treaty is now up to the U.S.Senate; they would need a 2/3rd super majority to ratify the treaty. We CAN stop this international treaty from reaching American soil by killing it in the United States Senate. Reach every U.S. Senator and tell them you do NOT want this treaty in OUR United States!
Everything Obama tackles in office is strategically timed and politically motivated. He only looks out for himself, his fellow liberals, and his anti-gun agenda. After mass shootings the Administration launches all-out attacks on our gun rights since the country would be more susceptible to change after a traumatic event. This has been signed conveniently after the recent D.C. Navy ship yard shooting. Since the attack, anti-gunners have been demanding more gun control and now it appears.
Gun advocates are weary of the language in the treaty including the fact that ‘small arms and light weapons’ are among the included weaponry that could be regulated by the United Nations. The UN Gun Treaty is a lot like ObamaCare; we will not know what it fully entails until it is implemented. It is impossible to trust the UN’s reassurance that this treaty will not affect our current gun laws or our Second Amendment. After all, the UN Arms Trade Treaty had previously been rumored as a replacement of the Second Amendment.
Obama may think he is being sneaky but we will make sure the public knows what he is up to and so will all 100 U.S. Senators. By sending faxes to each Senator, they will realize how important this issue is to the American people. We must flood their offices with faxes from Patriots across the country demanding our U.S. Senate does not ratify this international gun grab!
There has been Congressional resistance to the thought of a UN gun Treaty. 130 out of the 535 members of Congress signed a letter to Obama and Kerry urging them not to sign the treaty which the Administration seems to have ignored:
“As your review of the treaty continues, we strongly encourage your administration to recognize its textual, inherent and procedural flaws, to uphold our country’s constitutional protections of civilian firearms ownership, and to defend the sovereignty of the United States, and thus to decide not to sign this treaty.”
Senator James Inhofe shows his strong displeasure with the thought of an international gun treaty:
“The U.N. Arms Trade Treaty that passed in the General Assembly today would require the United States to implement gun-control legislation as required by the treaty, which could supersede the laws our elected officials have already put into place. It’s time the Obama administration recognizes it is already a non-starter, and Americans will not stand for internationalists limiting and infringing upon their Constitutional rights.”
We must make it clear TODAY to the Senate and the White House that the Second Amendment must be protected and that they must reject any and all U.N. Gun Control. Tell them to KEEP THEIR TREATY AWAY FROM OUR GUNS!
The uncertainty begins in the discussion of small arms. Where will the regulations on our small arms start, and where will they stop? They are even trying to include ammunition regulations in the Arms Trade Treaty!
Will the United Nations try to impose international licensing requirements, an international registry, or international regulations for the trade, sale, importation, and private ownership of our semi-automatic firearms?
The last negotiations for an Arms Trade Treaty took place in July 2012, just four months before the Presidential election. Obama did not want to take a big stance for global gun control just months before his re-election but now he has made it clear he is for total gun control. He also told voters he would not be re-visiting negotiations for an Arms Trade treaty but here we are.
Since his re-election it has become clearer than ever what is at the top of his agenda; taking our guns away! The Obama Administration has been exploiting tragedies since the election to push gun control at the city, state, federal, and now GLOBAL level.
Our Senate took a stance before the Presidential election when 51 of them wrote Obama a letter saying they would not support an Arms Trade Treaty. We must let our entire U.S. Senate know we do not support international gun control. They must not ratify this international treaty.
