UN Arms Trade Treaty poses Threat to Second Amendment
Talks are now underway in New York running from July 2 through to July 27 on the UN Arms Trade Treaty.
On 14 October 2009 the Obama administration said in a statement presented by Hillary Clinton and the State Department that it would overturn the position of former President George W. Bush, which had opposed a UN Arms Trade treaty on the insistence that national controls were better.
UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon was quoted as saying at the Conference-
“Our common goal is clear: a robust and legally binding Arms Trade Treaty that will have a real impact on the lives of those millions of people suffering from the consequences of armed conflict, repression and armed violence,” Ban said. “It is ambitious, but it is achievable.”
Foreign ministers of Germany, U.K., France, and Sweden wrote an editorial in the Guardian that the treaty “should cover all types of conventional weapons, notably including small arms and light weapons, all types of munitions, and related technologies. It is also of great importance that the treaty includes strong provisions on human rights, international humanitarian law and sustainable development.”
Previous UN treaties have been used to usurp national sovereignty, why wouldn’t this one do the same, especially when that is the UN’s intent in the first place. Gee , a bunch of unelected bureaucrats from other countries imposing their ideas and will over Americans Second Amendment rights. Sounds like a recipe for tyranny surprise pie to me, Especially seeing as Obama is a loving UN minion lapdog scumbag supreme, super sized with a Pepsi Jr. containing Fetal Cell lines. Gonna Vom..
