U.N. Small Arms Treaty

United Nations Flags

As many are aware, there has been a push in recent years to remove our 2nd Amendment rights by slowly eroding away the edges. It appears that the latest effort (Manchin/Toomey) has been stopped, but I don’t think we should relax.

Those who would take away our God-given right to bear arms have sworn they will not give up.

United Nations

One angle may not even come from our country. For at least a couple years now, I’ve heard ever strengthening talk about the United Nations infringing upon our Second Amendment rights.

The group that does such a wonderful job with the rest of the world (that’s sarcasm) wants to continue by regulating firearms globally. The bill is referred to as the U.N. Small Arms Treaty.

What’s in this Bill?

Some of the basics of this world order that would directly affect us would be as follows:

– Stronger license requirements that would make law-abiding American citizens have to go through even more bureaucratic hoops in order to legally own a firearm.

– A ban on the sale, trade and private ownership of all semi-automatic weapons.

– Confiscation and destruction of all “unauthorized” civilian firearms. It’s notable that government weapons are excluded here.

– The creation of an international gun registry, which naturally sets us up for total gun confiscation.

Ramifications

Imagining the results of this bill being passed in our country is frightening. The final stop on this train is the removal of all privately owned weapons.

The very reason we have the Second Amendment is to create a check and balance system against a federal government that would tyrannically rule. If there are no guns in the hands of private citizens, the Federal government has all the power.

Out of Our Hands?

So far, our congressional leadership as a whole has held off this push from the U.N., but we can’t assume that will always be.

A majority vote in the United Nations General Assembly would be all it takes. Our liberties could be taken from us not by our own lawmakers, but by a global governing body that does not have our rights in mind.

This vote would bypass any further discussion and give them self-imposed power to insist that member states (including the U.S.) adopt the treaty immediately.

Then it would be up to our governing leadership to stand against the United Nations. That is something that doesn’t seem promising.

What can You do?

The most effective action you can take is to contact your congressmen in both the House of Representatives and the Senate. Politicians pay attention to a flood of phone calls, emails, and visits.

Another step I took was to sign a petition/survey. I participated in a survey produced by the National Association for Gun Rights .

The Time is Nigh

Many have fought and died for the rights we enjoy. I believe the time has come for us to act as well.

The U.N. says it will protect us if we just give up a few of our freedoms. We cannot let our right to bear arms be stolen. If we do, our other rights will vanish soon after.

Question

What is your views on the U.N. governing our 2nd Amendment rights?

  1. Under the Constitution, all treaties must receive the approval of 2/3 of the Senate. The UN cannot bind the United States to anything without 2/3 Senate ratification. The Senate is the key.
