UN Small Arms Treaty
 
Here is a piece from Forbes magazine that should gut us all riled up.
The UN small arms treaty is alive and well and dangerous to the 2A.

The U.N. can go piss up a rope. No treaty can step on the Constitution. Any president or congress that lets this happen tells us all we need to know.

Oh, and "prohibition never works". Don't forget that.

If this does pass the UN needs to remember one key thing... Blue helmets do not make for good camoflauge.

Fireguy,

Anything involving the UN P---- Me Off! Wish we would advise them we were withdrawing from the group. They have used the US as a patsy for years. The instigate issues and then want us to pay and take care of it.
Anyway I waive the banner of our Second Amendment Rights on the back window of my Yukon XL as I travel the US for business.

I bought the graphics from Culpepper and Gadsden.

It is large whit graphics and it states:

DON'T TREAD ON ME! With the Snake Emblem. Over the top of that I have a large Graphic of an AR-15 Rifle with the saying under it of "COME GET IT!"

I also got a nice T-Shirt from them that states: "PEACEFUL BUT PREPARED!"

And I literally mean it. The day they try to come and take my weapons oh well! They will just have to find out !!!!

Every gun owner should be aware of legitimate threats to our 2nd Amendment rights. This one is not a threat to our gun rights. No treaty can trump the US Constitution. There is a UN Resolution stating that the UN will not get involved in gun rights.

Quote:

UN General Assembly Resolution A/C.1/64/L.38/Rev.1, Oct. 28: …Acknowledging also the right of States to regulate internal transfers of arms and national ownership, including through national constitutional protections on private ownership, exclusively within their territory…
This stuff has been on the internet ever since Obama took office. The likes of Bell and Dudley Brown keep this lie alive.

U.S out of the U.N. and U.N. out of the U.S.

I agree that no treaty can override the constitution HOWEVER, the danger here is VERY real. Im pretty sure the current president doesnt like guns and doesnt like people owning guns. If he can find a way to swing it by hook or crook he will probably go for it.


Can you imagine an international coalition of euro soldiers going door to door taking our guns? No, it wont be the guys with blue helmets, wed kill all of them right away.

I wonder what the US Military's response would be to such an event. (theory craft yay :D ) I can only assume they would not be to pleased with foreign soldiers bringing arms to bear on American citizens. But at the same time the commander in chief would probably tell them to not interfere... The question is would they obey that command. I don't think they would, personally.
