Hey fellow Freepers and Gun Rights Enthusiasts...

Does the UN CRPD have a back door clause on gun control?

I noticed this in reading this article by another Freeper. Check out the last sentence!

6. Article 6(2) is a backdoor method of requiring the United States to comply with the general provisions of the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women. This treaty enshrines abortion rights, homosexual rights, and demands the complete disarmament of all people.

Someone changed Article 6(2). It actually reads:

States Parties shall take all appropriate measures to ensure the full development, advancement and empowerment of women, for the purpose of guaranteeing them the exercise and enjoyment of the human rights and fundamental freedoms set out in the present Convention.
