I would imagine the Hiliary;s and The Amateur’s careers are toast for even coming up with this crap! And not to mention all those in Congress that would vote for 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.
Good luck getting 2/3 of the Senate to vote for that ...
This is also a great example of why the 17th Amendment needs to be repealed.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?
‘My opinion is, he guarantees his loss in November if he signs it’
Was just thinking the very same thing, RR
‘I’m pretty sure there will never be 2/3rd of the senate willing to consent to this POS treaty’
Agreed, this is our last best hope... yet Hillary committed, sound to me like they plan on ramming it through somehow
A call to your Senator can’t hurt, eh-
His check marks in his Marx hand book is increasing.
“Yes officer, that is correct ... the gun I purchased yesterday was stolen ... I have no idea who stole it or where it is.”
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!
Ratified by the Senate?
2/3 vote of the Senate?
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.
I understand that any “Treaty” must be approved by Congress. Anyone have further info?
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.
“PASSED BY THE UN????? A joke, right?
NRA thinking same as I apparently, NEVER underestimate your opponent... everybody PLEASE call your Senator!
Obama in a Big Hurry to Sign Oppressive UN ‘Small Arms Treaty’ (Next Month!)
Well, that goes in line with him being an Oppressive doesnt 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.
I predict a rash of unfortunate boating accidents...shame we all took all of our weapons out in the boat that one time.
Dude is on crack and high as hell with all his victories by SCOTUS.
I don’t see him getting 2/3rds of the Senate for ratification.
Well, they had the numbers in their favor then. Not so now.
SO IS THERE AN ACTUAL TIMELINE OR DATE CERTAIN FOR HUSSEIN TO ENGAGE THE SENATE?
WE HAVE BEEN HEARING ABOUT THIS FOR YEARS BUT THERE IS NO DATE CERTAIN I AM AWARE OF AND NONE INDICATED IN YOUR POSTING.
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.
Better to go down with a pile of spent cartridge casings at your feet than to submit to one iota of this. This, I pledge.
Guess I’ll have to kill someone who tries to take my weapons . Bring it on !!
Don’t be so sure it won’t pass — considering the many anti-American numbnuts we have in that place.
“When They Take Them From My Cold,Dead Hands”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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:
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”.
F U UN....(please go away!! You are (UN)American
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.

By the way, here’s the blog site for the author of the 2nd article: http://sipseystreetirregulars.blogspot.com/
Dingy Hairy probably thinks he can do it with 51 in reconciliation. And the LSM would probably back him up. And SCOTUS.
I dont see him getting 2/3rds of the Senate for ratification.”
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.
Revolution will come for certain, the second time for the USA.
Welcome to the second American revolution, the land of.
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.
