If any U.S. politician signs that $#!t, he/she/it should immediately be impeached. Or maybe we should just stump-hang him if it is Kerry, Biden, or Obummer.

On Friday Secretary of State John Kerry released a statement that the U.S. was committed to a “strong and effective” treaty to “help stem the illicit flow of conventional arms across international borders, and have important humanitarian benefits.” It could “only” be part of the treaty, Kerry noted, if it didn’t “impose any new requirements on the U.S. domestic trade in firearms or on U.S. exporters” and that the U.S. “will not support any treaty that would be inconsistent with U.S. law and the rights of American citizens under our Constitution, including the Second Amendment.”
Well the U.S Constitution says this treaty is null and void. It really pisses me off to see these "big shots" like John Kerry who knows nothing of the law and clearly doesn't care about citizens rights.

Some of these people are doing everything they can to promote a one-world government, apparently with the notion that they personally would be part of the governing body, and reap big personal benefits. Kerry strikes me as one of these. Since he married a filthy-rich lady, he regards himself to be part of the "master race". Obama is a puppet, has been since childhood, and would fantasize that he is a big hero if he helps to pull it off.

When you read that treat information, it all relates to control the armed populace thru registration of weapons, ammunition and components; relating to the final straw in armed populace is confiscation.

Buyers, beware: UN Arms Trade Treaty will regulate individual gun ownership

http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2013/03/28/buyers-beware-un-arms-trade-treaty-will-regulate-individual-gun-ownership/

The U.N.'s Arms Trade Treaty, which seemed dead last July, is beginning to wrap up negotiations. The Obama administration is committed to getting it passed . Secretary of State John Kerry confirmed: “The United States is steadfast in its commitment to achieve a strong and effective Arms Trade Treaty."

The treaty was resurrected on Nov. 8 – the very day after President Obama’s re-election. Very conveniently, that the Obama administration delayed the U.N. vote in favor of renewing negotiations delayed until the president was no longer constrained by public opinion.

The Arms Trade Treaty will regulate individual gun ownership all across the world. Each country will be obligated to “maintain a national control list that shall include [rifles and handguns]” and "to regulate brokering taking place under its jurisdiction for conventional arms.”

In fact, the new background check rules approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee include just those rules -- a registration system and a record of all transfers of guns.

Update on the UN Treaty:

Send Iran, North Korea and Syria a Thank You note; since our own state department will shove us off the cliff.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/optimism-in-un-over-1st-global-arms-trade-treaty-as-us-is-said-to-go-along-with-deal/2013/03/27/c0eac630-9746-11e2-b5b4-b63027b499de_story.html

Iran, North Korea and Syria blocked adoption Thursday of a U.N. treaty that would regulate the multibillion-dollar international arms trade which required agreement by all 193 U.N. member states.

In an unexpected twist, Mexico proposed that the conference go ahead and adopt the treaty Thursday without the support of the three countries, saying there was no definition of “consensus.” Delegates then started debating whether this should be done and several countries supported Mexico, but the Russian delegation called the proposal “a manipulation of consensus” and objected.

Is there a list of countries that blocked it? Besides Iran, NK, Syria. I know the Senate said they would not ratify it.

Besides those 3 countries, Mexico wanted to press forward with the vote; however, Russia and China chimed in and no, it is all or none!
