The United Nations will vote on this ‘arms trade’ treaty on July 27 and it has been causing quite a bit of consternation among certain groups. Now I can’t say for sure that this is part of some grand gun-grabbing scheme but one has to examine the motives and agenda of the people and organizations backing these types of moves. And by doing so, we must view this push for more gun control with serious suspicion.
Inevitably, such a treaty will result in more restrictions and government registration and tracking of private firearms as the US simply attempts to ‘be in compliance’ and makes sure arms aren’t crossing over the border illegally.
There seems to be some validity to the idea that the horrendously failed and downright murderous “Operation Fast and Furious” was a tactic designed by the Obama administration to create some supporting evidence and a possible rallying point in the press and the public that such treaties are necessary to stop the cross-border trafficking of firearms that help fuel conflicts including the carnage south of the border. The web of deceit, lies, and potential coverup is there and nobody knows how deep it goes or how complicated it is except for those engaging in it. That such devious and deadly tactics were used in attempt to bring about support for this treaty ought to give every reasonable person pause as to the wisdom of the treaty itself.
As a conservative, a ”man of the Right”, and liberty loving American I believe the United Nations is worthless at best and a body that often and repeatedly leads to the erosion of national sovereignty and the inherent rights that I have as an American citizen. Is this just my own humble opinion? Yes. But it is also shared by many of those who have worked intimately with the UN body and observed it first hand.
“ The administration is trying to act as though this is really just a treaty about international arms trade between nation states, but there’s no doubt – as was the case back over a decade ago – that the real agenda here is domestic firearms control. After the treaty is approved and it comes into force, you will find out that it … requires the Congress to adopt some measure that restricts ownership of firearms. The administration knows it cannot obtain this kind of legislation purely in a domestic context. … They will use an international agreement as an excuse to get domestically what they couldn’t otherwise.” - former US ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton
Wayne LaPierre, Executive Vice-President and CEO of the National Rifle Association has taken up the challenge to oppose the UN Gun Ban Treaty and did so forcefully as an NGO speaker before the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty Conference. In a powerful speech he laid down the gauntlet and proclaimed that American gun owners will defend their God-given rights and oppose any UN sponsored attempts to enforce gun control in the United States. Simply put, good for him.
It is generally feared that if this treaty is passed by the UN and signed by the US the UN “Small Arms Treaty” would almost certainly force the United States to:
*** Enact tougher licensing requirements, making law-abiding citizens cut through even more bureaucratic red tape just to own a firearm legally
*** CONFISCATE and DESTROY ALL supposed “unauthorized” civilian firearms
*** BAN the trade, sale and private ownership of all semi-automatic weapons
*** Create an INTERNATIONAL gun registry, setting the stage for full-scale gun confiscation.
