Just when we all thought the gun debate was dying down, the Obama administration has said it is now pursuing to sign the UN Arms Treaty in the “near future”. On April 2nd 2013, the UN general assembly voted 153-4 to proceed with the arms treaty with the United States voting in favor of the bill.
So what exactly does the UN Arms Treaty do to us as Americans? It’s a complex ban, still in prototype but the main force of the bill is to regulate the international trade in conventional weapons.
The treaty is expected to signed by the Obama administration by June 3rd, 2013.
Mainly what needs to be concerned here is the fact that the treaty regulates trade of firearms and like. This gives the elite a “foothold” to invade on our 2nd amendment rights, and later down the road our other rights.
The main reason that the treaty has been successful with other countries, is the fact that it does not ban firearms directly. However, it allows the governments of the countries who enact it to gain backdoor access to later infringe upon rights. Politicians are using the excuse that “the treaty will not take away our rights, rather enforce them”. This gives a decepted population the feeling that the treaty is good and will not harm our rights. This however is not true. Looking back into history, the first Nazi Regulation against firearms in 1938 was mild. It did not outright ban gun, rather it classified them and restricted them a bit. The, a few years later, Jews were ordered that they could not own, transfer or posses firearms, no exceptions.
