Another attack on the Second Amendment: UN Small Arms Treaty
June 25, 2012
The United Nations, that bastion of self-enriching, bloated gas bags, will soon be holding a month long convention on the UN Small Arms TREATY between 192 nations. Of course, Hillary Clinton is right in the middle of things in an effort to commit the US to this unconstitutional treaty.
Because this is a treaty, and not one of those federal corporate contract agreements the presidents are so fond of, it will have to be brought to the states for ratification (See U.S. Const. art. II, § . Section 3 provides the power to make treaties (with the advice and consent of two-thirds of the Senate)) except I don’t believe that will ever happen. Some, never heard of before, political slight of hand will be given as the reason as to why ratification of the treaty by the states was by-passed
Clinton will agree to the treaty on behalf of the US and Obama will sign it with great pleasure. For decades it has been the intent of the federal government to disarm lawful gun owners in the US.. Every possible excuse and reason has been used to try and sell the idea of striking down the 2nd Amendment by both partys. The actual intent is, by U.N. mandate to disarm private individual gun owners in America claiming a global treaty banning the ownership of small arms. Its all for world peace! It will make the military assaults on all nations far easier if the general population isn’t armed and able to mount even a limited defense.
