If you listen to all the political pundits on both sides of the botched “Fast & Furious” gun walking operation, a recurrent theme that seems to keep rearing its ugly head is that the operation was really an attempt by the Obama administration to justify very strict gun control laws. It didn’t work and led to the deaths of two federal agents and hundreds of Mexican citizens. It has also created one big mess for Obama’s Thugocracy, ensnaring his Attorney General, Eric Holder Jr.
The fact the SOCIALST PROGRESSIVES, currently in charge of our government, hate the Second Amendment to our Constitution is no secret. Progessives have been trying to disarm Americans ever since they realized that the total control of America is out of the question because of all the (legal) weapons that are present in this country. So they have been very diligently trying to find other ways to render the Second Amendment impotent.
Now, on the 27th of this month, Obama is getting ready to sign a treaty with the United Nations called “the Arms Trade Treaty”, and what it is supposed to do is control arms shipments between countries. In realty, it opens the door for the United Nations to dictate to our country global gun laws, effectively OVERRIDING our Constitution.
There have been news reports (but not by the Lame Stream Media) about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s very quiet negotiations with the United Nations concerning this treaty for a couple of years now. Apparently, the President is going to sign this treaty, which if ratified by our Senate will have the power to nullify our Second Amendment and your right to bear arms.
This treaty will affect the ownership rights of gun collectors, women, and sportsman almost immediately. The rest of us will have to simply wait until the Socialists running the United Nations decide when they will demand universal registration and possible confiscation of our legally-owned weapons for the “safety of the world”! Yeah, right. So, after much thought (about ten seconds) I have come up with an idea.
I am going to ask that you get this story out to everyone that you know who is a hunter, a sportsman, a gun collector, a CCL person, and basically anyone you know who feels that they have a right to own firearms and the right to protect their families and themselves under our Constitution. I would ask that they call the White House and let Obama know that you DO NOT approve of him signing any of our sovereign rights over to the United Nations, or anyone else for that matter.
For those of you who are not gun owners or enthusiasts, just remember one thing….if the government can take away your right to legitimately own firearms, then every other “right” that you possess means absolutely NOTHING! Our government now feels that they have a right to tell you what to eat, what to drink, what to drive, how to raise your kids, etc. etc. What do you think is going to stop them from taking TOTAL control of your life once the impediment of weapons is gone?
