I don’t like the sound of this line...

4. Each State Party shall establish or update, as appropriate, and maintain a national control list that shall include the items that fall within Paragraph 1 above, as defined on a national basis, based on relevant UN instruments at a minimum. Each State Party shall publish its control list to the extent permitted by national law.

Actually I don’t like any of it...

Where specifically are you getting that they want to outlaw gun ownership?? From the preamble ... a little further down than what you posted ...

14. Recognizing the legitimate international trade and lawful private ownership and use of conventional arms exclusively for, inter alia, recreational, cultural, historical and sporting activities for States where such ownership and use are permitted or protected by law;

If you posted a few more points you would see it excludes what you seem to be concerned about ...

What section of the document are they trying to take our right away? ... Post it ...

Article 2, Section 3:

Each State Party shall establish and maintain a national control system to regulate the export of parts and components to the extent necessary to ensure that national controls on the export of the conventional arms covered by Paragraph A1 are not circumvented by the export of parts and components of those items.

Nope... sorry... not gonna do it.

If this is ratified and signed by Obama, Communism will be completely wrapped around the throat of America. There's nothing in this treaty that allows for state sovereignty to override it in any way.

Coincidence that the media is pushing this mass shooting now at the same time the UN is trying to take over and take away our guns? I think not.

Are you serious? They’re calling for gun registries across the board. One only need look to history in the 20th century to see where that leads.

You’re a complete dolt and ignorant to the rights of man if you believe it’s okay for any global entity to require that we account for the weapon in our possession or their purpose.

What you say is true. You think this marxist/democrat, Muslim Obama won't sign it? Then I have a bridge to sell you.

I believe he will ignore the will of the Senate and sign it anyway, yes, but according to protocol, the Senate needs to ratify it by a supermajority, which will not happen.

Obama will sign it anyway, I agree.

I wonder how the Swiss, where military personnel are allowed to keep their weapons at home, will react to this UN document.

Oh, and I didn't say "take away" our guns, I said "registration/tracking". Taking away comes later.

No, I'm asking for the evidence before I become concerned ...

I read up to point 14 (which the original poster skipped) and that was enough for me to conclude this is not worth getting all wee-weed up about ...

You must be a democrat mole.

You got me ... I blew my cover.
