Skip to comments.Obama Takes First Step in Banning All Firearms
Posted on 11/12/2009 6:01:58 PM PST by opentalk
On Wednesday the Obama administration took its first major step in a plan to ban all 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. By signing international treaties on gun control, the Obama administration can use the US State Department to bypass the normal legislative process in Congress. Once the US Government signs these international treaties, all US citizens will be subject to those gun laws created by foreign governments. These are laws that have been developed and promoted by organizations such as the United Nations and individuals such as George Soros and Michael Bloomberg. The laws are designed and intended to lead to the complete ban and confiscation of all firearms.
The Obama administration is attempting to use tactics and methods of gun control that will inflict major damage to our 2nd Amendment before US citizens even understand what has happened. Obama can 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 US to international treaties and foreign gun control laws. Does that mean Obama is telling the truth? What it means is that there will be no publicized gun control debates in the media or votes in Congress.

Lock and load.
Uh...yeah... sure. The only thing it would accomplish would be to start Civil War II.
Such treaties must be approved by 2/3’s of the US Senate, and that is simply not going to happen. The result would be insurrection. 85 million American gun owners will not acquiesce to such tyranny.
this will be the day the guns will be heard.
Noone has the right to give away our constitution for Any reason.
And any cop or military gets in the way they will go the way as the gov.!
Constitution Article II, Section 2 requires all treaties to be concurred by 2/3 of Senators present.
Oh no he di-int!
Is the NRA in da house? If so i wanna give a shout out to them to get on this yesterday!
May God be with us all.
Try to come and get them....
It will most assuredly be a very bloody affair.
Regular old RK here
L & L
I am generally interested in the answers to these questions. Anybody here on FR ever talked to some LEOs about this issue?
The treaty ostensibly deals with exports.
When they come for our guns... give them the ammo first !
I haven't, but I have been thinking that exact thought for several months.
Check out Oathkeepers website. http://oathkeepers.org/oath
An all-out shooting civil war would begin before this kind of thing happens.
What kind of dope are you on newbie!
85 million armed gun owners marching on the White House would change his mind in a heartbeat...and the louses in Congress who agree to go along with this mess.
International treaties need to be scrutinized with this administration. There seems be an agenda that is not in our best interest.
That will be the last straw, if true.
The Chiefs will glibly order the officers into the field, the majority rank and file, outside Urban-hoodoo land will balk.Some will join with the”Civilian Obamacorps” cus dah kids gotta eatz.
LEOs despise Obozo and his minions with a perfect hatred. They are screwed. If they try raising their own army then there is CWII and they are screwed even more.
If ya’ll want to engage in some serious paranoia... consider that articles like this could be posted and used to find out who would resist unconstitutional actions.
It’s amazing to me to watch the reactions to this BS.
Some of you seem to have left common sense at home.
He can sign all the Treaties he wants but as someone pointed out they must be ratified by the U.S. Senate.
Lets not lose our cool just yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Although, I can easily see this Administration ignoring that little ol' "ratification" step. Espcially seeing how they piss on the rest of the Constitution.
There will be no ban. There might be a civil war, but there will be no ban.
I will not comply. I am not alone.
Even democrats won’t give up their guns.
40/60. About 60% on our side. According to my retired LEO father who still does Range Master duty for local and County LEO re-quals.
Great website. From looking at it, those LEOs and military types would be on our side.
With the recent Zero inspired buying binge? Probably much closer to 100 million by now.
Welcome to Oath Keepers
Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of currently
serving military, reserves, National Guard, veterans,
Peace Officers, and Fire Fighters who will fulfill the
Oath we swore, with the support of like minded citizens
who take an Oath to stand with us, to support and defend
the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic,
so help us God.
Our Oath is to the Constitution
Our motto is “Not on our watch!”
F*ck that. Pardon my French...
I can see the older LEOs like your Dad being on our side, but what about all these new, young cops I’m seeing? I mean, they look like little kids and, being as such, I would think they’d be easily brainwashed by Zero and his thugs. For the record, I live in a rural town who’s citizens would not stand for this sheet for second.
Cold day in hell!
The President does not have the authority to sign away our constitutional rights. But of course we have no ‘standing’ in any court, so nothing will be done...
This is what happens when You let an Apparently KENYAN BORN COMMUNIST RADICAL who has stated he “only supports some parts of the U.S. Constitution” hide ALL of His Past, including where he was Born, All of His Medical and Academic Records, All of His Passport and Travel records, All of His Professional Records and Financial Records, Realize He NEVER WROTE HIS ALLEGED “MEMOIRS”, ignored the Fact that ge Never Had a Real Position of Responsibility and Decision making, Ignored that He Campaigned as a US Senator for a Third World Thug and Possible Murderer, and then You Give HIM the MOST POWERFUL and MOST RESPONSIBLE POSITION IN ALL OF THE WORLD’S HISTORY because He is GOOD AT READING A TELEPROMPTER AND OBFUSCATING THE TRUTH!
MAY GOD SAVE OUR AMERICA AND OUR WORLD!!
That’s right and if there is a special call at 3:00 am to half a dozen anti-gun Senators they’ll vote on the treaty and ratify it before we know what’s happening.
Then there will be blood...
Its DOA if he tries. Treaties are subordinate to the Constitution and cannot override the protections stated therein. They can only be valid within the confines of the authority granted to our government by the Constitution. Plenty of controlling case law on this already exists including the recent Supreme Court smack down ruling in Medillan v Texas 2008.

Most likely you're right. But what if it's something else like Cap and Trade? Say 10 years down the road gas is $10/gallon, electricity rates have tripled, and there is no more middle class. Do we as citizens just sit there and become a third world country, or do we say "enough!"?
Geez, 42 posts into the thread and no one's bothered to see if SB-2099 exists in this Senate session (it doesn't) and no one's bothered to look on SNOPES.COM to see if this is a hoax (it is, and has been since May of this year.)
What's become of Freepers who knee-jerk react first, and don't bother to look for the facts?
I sure wish I had bought stock in firearms and ammo companies about a year and half ago.
