The Attack on the Second Amendment is not Finished

The Statist-Marxists (self-termed “Progressive Democrats”) are by no means finished hacking away at the branch of the Tree of Liberty bearing the 2nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The right of a free citizenry to keep and bear arms is a right the Marxist-Statists absolutely cannot tolerate. We have seen it all throughout history: Hitler’s Germany, the Soviet Union, Cambodia…all of the totalitarian states must take the firearms from the hands of their citizens in order to make them subjects.

Ben Franklin once said, “Those who beat their rifles into plowshares will plow for those who do not.” How simplistic, but eloquent in its truth. Bill Clinton kicked off the Brady Bill on November 30, 1993, and this was followed by what was termed the Bill Clinton Gun Ban that imposed drastic restrictions on firearms that lasted for ten years. What Clinton did not foresee was the severe backlash that occurred as a result from angry citizens that ended up propelling the Republicans to regain the House of Representatives after they had lost it for forty years.

This lesson was not lost on Obama, who preferred to attack the 2nd Amendment indirectly without the passage of legislation. Such actions are his attempts to control firearms with executive actions. The Arms Trade Treaty was adopted by the United Nations on April 2, 2013, and on September 25, 2013 U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry signed the treaty. This action was proposed before and argued over tooth and nail for more than ten years. The treaty went into effect on December 24, 2014, a quiet Christmas Present for the whole world that nobody noticed.

The U.S. Senate has not ratified it and will not ratify it: we know, it violates Marbury vs. Madison and is onerous to the Constitution. The problem lies in the fact that Kerry signed it as Obama’s representative and thereby made the United States a signatory to the treaty. What this means is the United States is now obliged to refrain from any actions that the treaty holds in its terms. One example of this would be a federal opposition to gun control, as this UN treaty clearly makes the objective of removing firearms from every human being on the planet not sanctioned, certified, and approved in the service of a government. Here are a couple of points to this:

Obama can still use signing the treaty as a justification for executive actions or orders that would institute gun control.

Only the courts could undo this (and the judges for the Circuit Courts and the Supreme Courts are owned by Obama), or actions by Congress (that would inevitably be vetoed anyway).
