UN promotes gun control again!
» Soros Promotes UN Control Over Gun Ownership Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind!
Ok, so the first part of the article says that according to the UN we gun owners have nothing to fear from this treaty. It says that our right to bear arms is guaranteed in the constitution and can't be taken away (or edited) by our own government, or a foreign government. Also, it states the goal of the treaty is supposed to be directed at international arms trade and not at private gun ownership.
But then we see that the text of the treaty doesn't actually exclude private ownership, and that it intends to impose strict international standards for the ownership, trade, and transfer of weapons in this country. It is really just a smoke screen to enact a massive overhaul of our second amendment. There is no way I am willing to comply with any of these proposed changes, and in fact it makes me want to buy a few weapons I have on my wish list. Maybe this is enough to get the wife on board with a new SR-556!
In order to avoid being labeled a “human rights abuser,” the United States (along with all member states) is ordered by the UN to comply with the ATT. To compel this compliance, the ATT empowers the UN to force Congress to:
• Enact internationally agreed licensing requirements for Americans
• Confiscate and destroy unauthorized firearms of Americans while allowing the U.S. government to keep theirs
• Ban the trade, sale, and private ownership of semi-automatic guns
• Create and mandate an international registry to organize an encompassing gun confiscation in America
So in the name of world peace and the supposed protection of human rights they will indeed infringe on our rights to bear arms. There is no way this will go over peacefully. In the end the standards set will ONLY effect private citizens and our government will continue to sell all types of arms and technology, without restriction, to countries all over the world.
The middle of the road is all of the usable surface. The extremes, right and left, are in the gutters.
