Obama in a Big Hurry to Sign Oppressive UN 'Small Arms Treaty' (Next Month!)
Reaganite Republican ^ | Reaganite Republican

Posted on 07/05/2012 11:16:55 AM PDT by Reaganite Republican

Obama and Holder are enamored of it... Hillary Clinton commited us to it... all they need now is Dear Leader's signature/ratification by
Harry Reid's Senate and the US populace has forever forfeited a significant chunk of it's 2nd Amendment rights.

Specifically, what's all this mean?

If passed by the UN and ratified by the U.S. Senate, the
UN Small Arms Treaty will likely FORCE the U.S. to:


As the despicable Obama regime does all it can possibly imagine to restrict and intimidate us re. our 1st Amendment rights, we simply can't afford to lose our 2nd Amendment rights...
they're almost all we got between us and total tyranny now- not to mention poor AZ ranchers facing battalion-sized drug running gangs armed with AK-47's or worse right in their yard.


What to do?

1) Join the NRA, if you haven't already.. even if you currently do not own a firearm -here-

2) Call your Senator and say don't even think about it... -here-

What a crying shame patriots are forced to fight our own president just to preserve what were once 'inalienable rights'...

My opinion is, he guarantees his loss in November if he signs it, and hordes of people will descend on Washington do protest and PREVENT the Senate from even considering ratification. Signing this treaty IS treason!!!!!!! IMHO

In the US, the treaty power is a coordinated effort between the Executive branch and the Senate. The President may form and negotiate a treaty, but the treaty must be advised and consented to by a two-thirds vote in the Senate. Only after the Senate approves the treaty can the President ratify it

I'm pretty sure there will never be 2/3rd of the senate willing to consent to this POS treaty. Hopefully we can make it even more unlikely in 2012.

Not even close! It would GUT the 2A in its entirety.

If the Senate ratifies it, this country is completely lost. It will be the final straw. My predictions about martial law will come to fruition very shortly after signing.

IF it passes, every Senator who voted for it should swing. This is a blatant and very obvious circumvention of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution and would constitute treason of the highest order and in the strongest terms possible.

I am preparing my heart, my soul, my family, and my friends for what is coming, folks. I hope you are doing the same.

This is also a great example of why the 17th Amendment needs to be repealed.

It used to be that Senators represented the state governors. They were appointed much the same way that the SCOTUS justices are.

Popular elections mean the whims of a fickle majority are on the table.

Our sentiments were very similar during the Obamacare debates.

Look where that ended up.

People can be bought with both power and money. All it would take is a few billion of promises to each Senator, and our freedom, the very soul of our republic, would be signed away with the stroke of the pen.

” CONFISCATE and DESTROY ALL ‘unauthorized’ civilian firearms (yet firearms owned by the government are excluded, of course!)

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.”

Anyone that tries to follow through with that is only committing suicide.

Infringe on my Rights, don’t dare complain when I remove yours. Sorry but try to take my guns and we will have a war and while you may eventually win against me, is the cost you will endure worth it?

This is true of a lot of ridiculous "treaties," but I don't think Harry Reid will ever have 67 votes to ratify. I find it interesting the #1 course of action recommended by the article is "Join the NRA." Hah!

I don't think so. NRA scare tactics. But that's OK with me. The NRA is on the right side of the law and the Constitution.

“2/3 vote of the Senate?”

Easy. Put the bill in some student loan thing, and use 51 votes or reconciliation to pass it.

Reid can kill the 67 votes pretty simply.

If passed by the UN and ratified by the U.S. Senate, the UN Small Arms Treaty will likely FORCE the U.S. to

Those are the key words here - "will likely." This treaty hasn't even been written. Supporters say that it will relate only to international arms sales, and specifically won't affect domestic firearms ownership. I'm willing to wait and see what the treaty ultimately says before supporting/opposing it.

Well, that goes in line with him being an Oppressive doesn’t it?

Is this all part of his trying to destroy our right of self-defense “under the radar”?

The senate Donks and RINOs know damned well they’d be skinned in their next election if they signed off on this. It won’t happen— Barky can pledge to sign all he wants but his signature would be meaningless.

Ratification of this treaty would require approval by 67 Senators. The leftists will not get 67 Senators to approve this, either before or after November.

Thus Obama would be doing us a favor to sign this treaty now, thereby handing us another club with which to beat him in the run-up to November.

My concern is that Obama is going to circumvent the Senate altogether. He’s already circumvented Congress with EOs, and there’s absolutely no response from any lawmaker on any of his wrongdoings. Every chamber is silent on Obama’s usurpation of power.

I have little faith Obama will abide by any advice or consent (or lack thereof) from the higher chamber.

It is time to get become organized against the threat of confiscation. The Constitution not only allows for it, guarantees it, the right to be armed, the right to speak freely and associate, the right to defend personal safety and liberty. All gun organizations of any type including local, state, and national need to have all members be counted and united and pledge to stand together against any agency or group on American territory and soil anywhere that would attempt to confiscate individual arms. Such attempts by any agency or entity usurping our right to bare arms would be stopped cold by our God given right and legal authority under the Constitution as to prevent such confiscation by force of arms from all able bodied men standing together at the call ready to defend each and one another as whole nation of free men fighting oppression in common cause and pledging our lives, fortunes, honor, and tradition as free men.

If that bill is passed you will see a huge increase in the crime rate in this country.

You can bet that the Swiss and the Yemeni, where every male over 16 carries an AK-47, will never give up their guns and that the UN will never ask them to do so.

This is clearly a case where the UN is singling out the US to change its Constitution and they know that, with Obama as POTUS, the time has arrived to do so.

“Most treaties submitted to the Senate have received its advice and consent to ratification. During its first 200 years, the Senate approved more than 1,500 treaties and rejected only 21. A number of these, including the Treaty of Versailles, were rejected twice. Most often, the Senate has simply not voted on treaties that its leadership deemed not to have sufficient support within the Senate for approval, and in general these treaties have eventually been withdrawn. At least 85 treaties were eventually withdrawn because the Senate never took final action on them. Treaties may also remain in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for extended periods, since treaties are not required to be resubmitted at the beginning of each new Congress. There have been instances in which treaties have lain dormant within the committee for years, even decades, without action being taken.” - taken from US Senate website:

http://www.senate.gov/artandhistory/history/common/briefing/Treaties.htm

For whatever its worth, the Senate ratified Obama’s 70% reduction in deployed nuclear warheads (2011, New START Treaty).

O will do what he usually does. Sign a UN agreement and if the senate objects, go the back door route and enforce it through his departments(that already control most everything)with EOs. A few examples of this are immigration, energy and environmental “concerns”.

My predictions about martial law will come to fruition very shortly after signing.

My prediction is that not only will "Wanted Dead" posters crop up, they'll be serious about paying out.
Hopefully, the Grand Juries (for every district) will convene and issue presentments demanding the Treason trial for all signatories. Then, try them in absentia using the signatures themselves as witnesses to the action thereby providing the "two or more witnesses to the same overt act."

And secondly, politicians will crap their pants at the new militia movement.

First of all, even if such a treaty is approved (and I think that highly unlikely), it would be illegal - no treaty can override the Constitution, only a Constitutional Amendment can do that.

Further, with regard to the Bill of Rights, the simple fact is that the Constitution was only ratified because those at the Constitutional Convention promised that the 1st Congress would take up the issue of certain basic rights and pass amendments to specifically limit government power. If one of those first 10 Amendments is voided out, then it can safely be concluded that the entire Constitution is null and void.

In the event that the treaty is passed, and the (then-illegal) central government attempted to enforce its terms against the people of this country, I believe that many articles and threads like the 2 below will not only “go viral” all over the place, but that much of the advice or information presented in them will be implemented...none of which is calculated to make it easier to govern this country.

Dingy Hairy probably thinks he can do it with 51 in reconciliation. And the LSM would probably back him up. And SCOTUS.

Always remember FReepers, 67 votes in the Senate are not required for ratification. 2/3 of Senators “present” are what's required to ratify treaties. Remember the Reich's enabling laws in 1933 were passed with the exclusion of targeted Social Democrats, Catholics etc... I would not put it past 0bama to make sure certain Senators will not be present to vote.

Remember that the first American Revolution began with government forces attempting to seize arms and supplies stored at Concord. Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
