You know,there comes a time when,with so much evidence to support such an accusation and conclusion,that one must question the legitimacy of such a corrupt government..........as well as one's own fealty to obey it.

someday the truth will come spilling out about who this man BHO is and the world will laugh at a people who elected the biggest charlatan ever.

Just thought I'd share a response I got from Senator Inhofe (OK) regarding an e-mail I sent him about this subject. Hope it isn't too long for the forum.

Dear Mr. White:

Thank you for contacting me regarding the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. As you know, the United Nations just completed a global conference, during which it attempted to reach an agreement on an Arms Trade Treaty . Fortunately, at the end of the conference the negotiators were unable to reach consensus. The Arms Trade Treaty has, at least temporarily, been put on hold.

The Bush Administration opposed the Arms Trade Treaty on the grounds that national controls were better. Yet i t should come as no surprise that soon after entering the White House, the Obama Administration reversed this position and went to work crafting and negotiating a U.N. Arms Trade Treaty.

Although we all agree that a committed effort must be made to prevent terrorists and criminals from acquiring weapons, the treaty could undermine our foreign policy and national security strategy, and infringe on Americans' Second Amendment rights.

Bad actors in the international community will continue their unlawful actions after this treaty is signed. Against nations such as the United States, however, the Arms Trade Treaty may have a considerable impact. Take, for instance, the requirement in the draft that arms should not "be used in a manner that would seriously undermine peace or security, or provoke, prolong or aggravate internal, regional, sub-regional or international instability."

Yet each and every time we supply weapons to some of our greatest allies—Taiwan, South Korea, Israel—we are in fact prolonging regional or international instability. But this is instability that is necessary for international order and the prevalence of democracy in regions where it might not otherwise exist. Yet the terms of the draft treaty could be read to prohibit such weapons sales.

The United States has some of the strictest export control mechanisms in the world and does not supply arms to terrorist organizations or totalitarian regimes. The United States should not, therefore, change its standards on the transfer of conventional weapons to meet new universal standards set by other U.N. member states.

I am a cosponsor of S. 2205, expressing the Senate's opposition to the treaty, and have joined 57 of my Senat e colleague s who have already signed a letter of opposition. Protecting our national interests and individuals' right to bear arms is important to me, and I will continue to champion efforts to ensure they are protected.

Though the Arms Trade Treaty negotiations failed to produce a document the negotiators could agree upon, the debate is not over. I have no doubt that efforts to produce a treaty will continue. At that time, it will be the duty of the United States Senate to refuse to ratify any treaty that will undermine the foreign policy of the United States and the Second Amendment to the Constitution.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact me. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future about other issues of importance to you.

Sincerely,

James M. Inhofe
United States Senator

A letter from Congressman Jeff Duncan, South Carolina:










July 19, 2012









Dear Mr. Byers,



Thank you for your letter regarding H.R. 5846, the Second Amendment Sovereignty Act of 2012. I appreciate hearing your concerns.



Introduced by Congressman Ben Quayle (R-AZ) on May 18, 2012, H.R. 5846 has been assigned to the House Foreign Affairs Committee. As a Member of that that committee, as well as co-chairman of the Sovereignty Caucus, I will do everything possible to ensure that American Sovereignty is protected against international bureaucrats.



My position on gun rights is very simple; I will oppose any restriction or erosion to our Second Amendment liberties. As an avid sportsman, gun owner, and concealed weapons permit holder, I strongly believe that law-abiding citizens should have the right to keep and bear arms. As you may know, I carry a pocket-sized Constitution with me at all times. I do this not only to honor the founders of our country, but also because I am a firm believer in this great document.



If the United Nations passes the proposal regarding the arms trade treaty, only the Democratic-led Senate will have approval authority. This treaty could be interpreted to ban or reduce the use and possession of an automatic weapon. Fortunately, a two-thirds majority is needed in order to approval any proposals formed at the United Nations. I plan to work with my Senate colleagues to ensure they understand the importance of the Second Amendment. I do not support the President's backhanded attempts at stripping American citizens of their Constitutional rights.



Again, I appreciate you expressing your concerns. As your Representative in Congress, I welcome your input and the input of all my constituents. If you ever need anything from me in the future, please do not hesitate to contact my office directly.







Blessings and Liberty,
Signature
Jeff Duncan
Member of Congress

Something just stinks when we have to introduce legislation like this in defense of an inalienable right that government is already told it may not infringe.

And again,the "law abiding" "permit holding" supposed 2A supporter just doesn't get it- when you have to have permission from and a license from the government to do something,it is not a "right",but a "privilege".

We don't have a "right" when government gets to decide who gets to excersize it and licenses people to be able to excersize it in full.

Thats a government administered privilege.

And he might as well toss that constitution he's got in his back pocket in the nearest state provided waste receptacle if he doesn't understand that.

Its my belief that we have gotten to the point where were worrying about the UN violating our rights because we don't have a government that respects them here at home.

Wake up folks- you don't live in a Republic with a government limited by Constitutional law,you live in a socialist democracy where individual rights are subjugated to the needs of the collective as determined by those "who know whats best for us" and popular consent.
You've got mob rule administered by elitists elected to office because of their promises to cater to the will of said mob,NOT because of their fealty to the Republic and the Constitution.
And if the mob thinks your "right" should be subject to government control,well.......

"There is no maxim in my opinion which is more liable to be misapplied, and which therefore needs elucidation than the current one that the interest of the majority is the political standard of right and wrong.... In fact it is only reestablishing under another name a more specious form, force as the measure of right...."
— James Madison, letter to James Monroe, October 5, 1786

You can continue to accept the "by your leave" permission scheme nature of allowing government to have so much control over you and your natural,inalienable rights that they're no more then mere privileges,and watch how quickly those privileges dwindle into mere shadows of what you could have if you stood on principle and demanded that your rights be respected.

We will either have a government limited by Constitutional law that which derives its powers by the lawful appropriations of duties and authorities granted it by the Constitution and obedient to the principles of the founding of this nation,or we will have a government that believes it is our master and that it derives its authority from the will of the mob and that we have no rights but those it allows us.

And when those who support a socialist world government manage to subjugate our nation and ourselves to the will of the UN with such a powerful government as one that knows no bounds,don't act surprised.

Its the natural course of tyranny to seek global domination via empire.
