I think he did the right thing throwing his War metals away. He sure as hell did not earn them. It is a terrible thing. The Democrats have chosen the Ani-Patriots to lead our Nation.
Yeah, he got his silver star when he saw a VC about to blow away the river boat Kerry was on. So Kerry in all his heroism, jumped off the boat, probably to save his own hide. Then he shot the kid who couldn't figure out how to operate his grenade launcher.

Yep, John Kerry is an idiot. However, he did serve in the US Navy in Vietnam. The US Navy does not hand out Silver Star medals; Kerry earned his. Very few sailors were awarded Silver Star medals. Whatever he did after Vietnam is beside the point.

Numerous self described "patriots" dodged the draft and wussed out on the home front. Among these are Dick Cheney, Tom DeLay, Dennis Hastert and our yellow bellied draft dodging congress critter Tom Cole.

Strange that many of those who dodged the draft later became bellicose warmongers.

October 22, 2013

One month after Secretary of State John Kerry signed the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty and just a few days after 50 U.S. senators said they will not ratify the agreement, a curious “high level panel” on Argentina’s national program for the voluntary surrender of firearms is scheduled this Thursday in a U.N. conference room in New York, Examiner learned today.

Apparently hosted by Ambassador Maria Cristina Perceval, permanent representative of Argentina to the U.N., according to the invitation obtained by this column, the gathering was described as a “side event” scheduled during the daily lunch break, from 1:15 to 2:30 p.m.

Last year, according to the U.N. Office of Drugs and Crime, Argentina authorities destroyed nearly 11,000 firearms that had been voluntarily turned in. Argentine President Cristina Fernandez Kirchner, now recovering from serious surgery, spoke last month at the U.N.

During this Thursday’s event, presentations will be made by Dr. Julio Alak, minister of justice and human rights of Argentina; Angela Kane, high representative of the Secretary General for Disarmament Affairs; Matias Molle4, director of the National Register of Arms of Argentina; Dr. Ernesto Kreplak, under-secretary for Coordination and Control of Registral Management of Argentina; Melanie Regimbal, director of the Regional Centre of the U.N. for Peace, Disarmament and Development in Latin America, and Daniel Prins, director of the Conventional Arms Branch of ODA (Office of Disarmament Affairs).

Dr. Alak was quoted last year when news agencies reported the gun destruction. He told reporters that “we have now reached the figure of 160,531 firearms taken out of circulation.” He said at the time that civilian disarmament “is a priority goal for the national state because it is a tool for reducing the level of violence in society.” Alak’s appearance on Thursday has yet to be confirmed, according to the invitation.

If that sounds familiar, it is essentially the same rhetoric used by the American gun prohibition lobby. Every scheme to erode gun rights is aimed at “reducing violence,” which comes right out of the gun control playbook exposed first by this column and The Gun Mag.com on Aug. 1. On page 9 of “Preventing Gun Violence Through Effective Messaging,” readers are counseled, “Do talk about ‘preventing gun violence’,” but “Don’t talk about ‘gun control’.”

............

Our specific concerns with the Arms Trade Treaty include:

1. Article 3 which would include controls over small arms ammunition. We believe that such control would do little but reduce accessibility for legitimate purposes and raise costs.

2. Article 4 with its requirement over control of components.

3. Article 5, particularly sections 2 and 4, which at 2 calls on states to "...establish and maintain a national control system, including a national control list, in order to implement the provisions of this Treaty." Sub-section 4 makes that issue even more offensive with:

4. Each State Party, pursuant to its national laws, shall provide its national control list to the Secretariat, which shall make it available to other States Parties. States Parties are encouraged to make their control lists publicly available. We see this vague phrasing as having the potential to create a national registry which would be all the more offensive and dangerous as it would be made public.

4. Article 8 subsection 1 is highly problematic with regards to "end user" documentation, and the NFA submits that the end user of small arms and ammunition cannot be known in the absence of a heavily regulated registration and licensing program, which we vigorously oppose. We have the same concern about article 12, especially sub-section 3.

5. Canada's National Firearms Association does not support the inclusion of Article 7 subsection 4 in the absence of any clear statement supporting the legitimate use of firearms for personal defence. Why should prevention of violence be tied to gender? It should also be considered that civilian self-defence may by necessity involve violence.

6. Canada's National Firearms Association is concerned that articles 15 and 16 open the door to widespread corruption, as well as to increased demands for assistance. Canada's National Firearms Association expects that improved fiscal responsibility at the UN is necessary to ensure that funding is better monitored and controlled. Improved financial controls upon the UN would save more lives than this Arms Trade Treaty ever would.

7. Canada's National Firearms Association is concerned about Article 16, subsection 1 and in particular its reference to model legislation. The UN model firearms legislation that has been published is both extremely dangerous and offensive, and would certainly represent significant additional burdens to Canadian firearms owners.

8. Canada's National Firearms Association is concerned about Article 18 particularly the vague nature of subsection 3. E. and its potential for expansion of the scope and additions to the treaty as related to Article 20.
Canada's National Firearms Association strongly recommends that Canada does not sign the Arms Trade Treaty. Our position is that the present domestic burdens on Canadian firearms owners are already excessive, and the effect of this treaty would be to add more unnecessary, onerous, and costly requirements for firearms ownership, as well as build further disrespect for firearms law...........

This is where registration leads. This is where gun owners end up when they don't support each other.

This Treaty is poison.

Humm? Only conservatives did not join our military? I am sure you intended to include Obama, Harry Reed. Joe Biden survived 5 draft attempts until 1968. He then claimed he had asthma since High School? Bill Clinton escaped to England and led protest against the American Military.
Alsaqr, I am sure you intended to include these Liberals. No need to thank me, just glad to help you out.

Just because a politician is a conservative does not mean the politician will defend the second ammendment, see Chris Christie and Mitt Romney. We cannot allow the republican party to present these "Obama Light" politicians as conservatives. If we do allow these Blue state republicans to be nominated again we will lose again. Many conservatives voted for Obama because they felt like he could do the least amount of damage.

Moreover, voters from red states see the mess created in most of the northeast. They are not going to give these candidates a chance to screw up the entire nation.

We are already seeing the effects of the UN small arms treaty. Without the UN small arms treaty Obama could not have stopped the import of milsurp firearms with the stroke of a pen. We are not seeing the flow of imported ammunition that we expected to end the current ammo shortage. We are seeing ammo prices increase due to the restrictions created by the ATT. I saw wolf gold 9mm ammo in walmart today for $20 a box, it wasn't even HP ammo.

Seriously now Mr. Deere, who ever called Christie or Romney conservatives? That is like confusing a horse with a Camel.
