Left-wing activists are quick to dismiss the UN Small Arms Treaty as virtually irrelevant in the United States.
But while these armchair generals pontificate, bureaucrats at the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs are steadily pushing a global gun ban under the guise of “controlling the illicit firearms trade.”
On October 14, 2009, President Obama and newly minted Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton reversed the longstanding position of the United States and announced public support for an international gun control scheme.
This breathed new life into the so-called “Small Arms Treaty” and bureaucrats at the UN quickly began working on new ways to redefine gun ownership as a crime.
The next “UN Conference on an Arms Trade Treaty” will be held in New York City throughout the month of July. According to sources at the UN, pushing heavy anti-gun restrictions into the developing language of the treaty is top priority.
“The hidden agenda of a lot of the people who sought to negotiate a small arms treaty really had less to do with reducing dangers internationally and a lot more to do with creating a framework for gun control statutes at the national level,” said former UN Ambassador John Bolton.
The official documents of the UN Office for Disarmament Affairs substantiate Ambassador Bolton’s predictions. Disguised as an “International Arms Control Treaty” to fight against “terrorism,” “insurgency” and “international crime syndicates,” the UN’s Small Arms Treaty is the same old gun control on a global scale.
If passed by the UN and ratified by the U.S. Senate, the UN “Small Arms Treaty” would almost certainly force the United States to enact new firearms licensing requirements.
It would also require the U.S. to confiscate and destroy all “unauthorized” civilian firearms, ban the trade, sale and private ownership of all semi-automatic weapons and create an international gun registry, setting the stage for full-scale gun confiscation.
Ultimately, the clear goal is to give UN bureaucrats sweeping power to restrict your Second Amendment rights.
Right on cue, left-wing activists are raising shrill protests. It would be downright funny, if the subject itself weren’t so serious. For example, one of their “experts” is a character named Professor Carl T. Bogus.
Yes, you read that right. Apparently it’s not a joke. Professor Bogus has been hailed as a hero by anti-gun groups like the “Violence Policy Center” for explaining where the Second Amendment really came from.
According to Professor Bogus, James Madison actually wrote the Second Amendment just to reassure wicked, early-American slave masters that their militias, which were the “principle instruments of slave control,” would not be disarmed.
“The Second Amendment takes on an entirely different complexion when instead of being symbolized by a musket in the hands of the minutemen, it is associated with a musket in the hands of the slave holder,” says anti-gun zealot Josh Sugarman, founder of the Violence Policy Center.
Now the able Professor Bogus has brought forth a new jewel: the very idea that Hillary and the UN are anti-gun is, well, bogus.
According to Professor Bogus and the rest of the brain trust at the left-wing news website “Mother Jones,” the National Association for Gun Rights actually invented the “rumor” that Hillary, Obama and the UN Office for Disarmament Affairs want to ban guns!
The National Association for Gun Rights is proud to acknowledge that it was first on the scene more than two years ago, alerting gun owners to the dangers of the “Small Arms Treaty.”
Now, NAGR’s million member army is working to defeat this new threat, and literally thousands of gun owners are joining the fight every week. The National Association for Gun Rights will continue doing battle against this direct attack on the Second Amendment.
