Obama is famous for saying that America's patriots "cling to their religion and guns" as if that were something shameful. "If liberals are attacked what do they cling to? Their food stamps and energy-saving life bulbs?" quipped a political strategist.
While most of the news outlets in the United States have engulfed Americans in news coverage regarding the economy and the 2012 presidential elections, little if any news coverage exists about major actions being considered by President Barack Obama and progressive lawmakers, including the signing of a United Nations gun control treaty on July 27, according to Dick Morris, a former Bill Clinton political advisor.
Apparently the United States will sign-on to an International Gun Control Plan pushed by the United Nations that's already received the blessings of Secretary Hillary Clinton, according to the State Department.
Secretary Clinton has been pushing for the United States to become a party to a global gun control treaty since she began heading the State Department. And President Obama appears to be overly sympathetic to such an international power-grab, according to gun rights groups, according to gun rights activists such as John Snyder and Larry Pratt.
"Last week, the Obama Administration took its first major step in a long-range plan to ban firearms in the United States. The Obama Administration intends to force gun control and a complete ban on all weapons for US citizens through the signing of international treaties with foreign nations," according to journalist Joan Sharon.
By signing international treaties on gun control, the Obama administration can use the U.S. State Department to bypass the normal legislative process in Congress. Once the U.S. government signs these international treaties, all US citizens will be subject to those gun laws created by foreign governments, according to political consultant and attorney Michael S. Baker.
"These are laws that have been developed and promoted by organizations such as the United Nations and individuals such as radical billionaire George Soros and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg," said Baker.
"The laws are designed and intended to lead to the complete ban and confiscation of all firearms," according to Joan Sharon.
"The Obama administration is attempting to use tactics and methods of gun control that will inflict major damage to our Second Amendment before US citizens even understand what has happened," she added.
Critics believe Obama will appear before the public and tell them that he does not intend to pursue any legislation in the United States that will lead to new gun control laws, while cloaked in secrecy, his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, is committing the U.S. to international treaties and foreign gun control laws.
"We will wake up one morning and find that the United States has signed a treaty that prohibits firearm and ammunition manufacturers from selling to the public. We will wake up another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that prohibits any transfer of firearm ownership. And then, we will wake up yet another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that requires US citizens to deliver any firearm they own to the local government collection and destruction center or face imprisonment," Ms. Sharon stated.
And former police detective Samuel Ginsburg uses the Operation Fast and Furious scandal as an example of Obama's infatuation with disarming Americans. He claims the goal of the gun-walking operation was to place even more sanctions on gun dealers and owners.
"These people came up with an amateurish police operation designed to prove their point about a need for stiffer gun laws. And it blew up in their faces as they hide behind executive privilege likes rats hide from an exterminator," said Ginsburg.
This is another reason why we have to take control of the Senate away from the Democrats and that idiot Harry Reid. We are all advocates of the Constitution here and should know that the usurper on his own can sign treaties all day long and it means absolutely squat. In order for any treaty to be binding on the United States it must be approved by the Senate. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I believe it has to be approved by a two thirds majority, that's 66 votes. While I am not advocating that we forget about this, we must keep an eye on it. But fool that he is I don't think even Harry Reid would be stupid enough to pass something like this. In my neck of the woods even the most ardent die hard Democrats are very pro gun.
Sixty-seven. And, yes, a two-thirds majority is required for treaties.
Anyone here really serious about doing anything to stop this treason? Take a look at the Million-Man-March scheduled for Sept 17th, 2012. Sign up and plan on going.
As I recall there are 46 republicans in the US Senate......it will take 12 of them to vote for the treaty in order to get the 66 votes, or maybe it's 67, needed for ratification. If 12 of them do vote for this despicable treaty, I hope to God they are up for reelection.
Exactly right Harry. I'm beginning to think that perhaps the message is starting to get through. Our representative is a Democrat but he voted with the Republicans to repeal Obamacare.
Is your Rep. up for re-election?
One of my Senators is up for reelection........Bill Nelson of Florida and he's a gonner..........his head is so far up Obama's backside, there's no room for light..........
Both of mine will vote no. Inhofe and Coburn.
I have Feinstein and Boxer; I don't bother to write or call.
No he's not running again, but he's one of the so called blue dogs.
OBAMA SHOULD JUST THINK THIS OVER AGAIN......HE WORKS FOR ''WE THE PEOPLE'', AND ''WE THE PEOPLE'' ARE NOT GIVING OUR GUNS UP......NOT FOR HIM NOR THE U.N.
Folks, there are I think 58 Senators already on the list who've sent OWEbumbler a letter stating their OPPOSITION to the UN ATT treaty. It takes 67 votes to PASS the treaty, that means DemocRATS have to peel off at least 14 GOP Senators to win this vote. In an election year it WON'T happen, that's where the American people will have to show their extreme opposition should OWEbumbler attempt to enforce this treaty through the State Dept. This election year is THE most important in our lifetimes, WE THE PEOPLE need to make sure OUR VOICES ARE HEARD LOUD AND CLEAR in November.
