UN Arms Treaty Dead
The Washington Times ^ | July 27, 2012 | James S. Robbins

Posted on 07/27/2012 6:05:39 PM PDT by Neil E. Wright

Talks over the UN Arms Trade Treaty fell apart today, effectively killing the agreement. The Arms Trade Treaty Legal Blog reports that the process seemed to be moving to completion when the United States requested an extension to the time to negotiate the agreement. This opened the door to other countries to begin registering objections, and it soon became clear that reaching agreement within the allowed timeframe would be impossible. The proposed treaty, which raised considerable domestic opposition from gun rights advocates in the United States, died before it had a chance to become a threat. As a delegate from China observed, "C'est la vie et la vie c'est ça."

Unfortunately,this is NEVER going to go away. This is just a temporary set-back for the gun grabbers.

Seize the UN, raze the building, and put up the world’s biggest Chick-Fil-A. Y’all go do your misery on European soil and without our participation or compliance.

The only way to truly kill it is to eliminate the UN.

It would be fun watching the UN collapse.

First they’d fight over who gets to house the UN and all the wealthy diplomats it brings with a fair number of countries packing up and leaving with us.

It would be especially entertaining if they landed in the mideast where there would be weekly bombings.

The UN is dead. It has a deadly wound in it’s head. It may miraculously rise from the dead at some point like the future world leader prophesied in the Bible (Revelation 13:3).

Exactly! I also note that over the last couple of years we have heard a number of times that some devilish plan was dead, only to see it rear it’s head seemingly hours later.

I’ll believe this round is dead at least a week after the Olympics is over.

No use for the Euros to fight over a new UN headquarters, they [the UN] already have four: (1) NYC [current one]; (2) Geneva, Switzerland; (3) Brussels, Belgium; and (4) Nairobi, Kenya.

Condemn the NYC HQ and give the UN six months to move out. Four weeks after the drop dead date to move out, the NYC HQ gets imploded. NYC is free to build anything on the rubble.

The U.S. does not relocate to the new UN HQ and it shuts off all funding. The UN dies of its own corruption and greed.

Never take anything for granted....”lame duck” sessions can do strange things.

And yes, I know about the head count against LOST stands at a precarious 35 votes. It takes two senators to go wobbly and we’re in deep doo-doo. Make every senator take a stand BEFORE the lame duck session.

I agree, the headline is mis-leading. Particularly since it says in the body of the article that it is only in "indefinite hiatus."

Carry_Okie: I agree, they have a plan B somewhere up their sleeves. Eternal vigilance!

It’s okay to be optimistic, just not complacent. Remember when ObamaCare was declared dead after a summer of protests - and then “deemed passed” in the middle of the night? We are facing pure evil, and we have to stay involved and keep the pressure on the far left.
