Skip to comments.BARR: The U.N. comes after America’s guns
Posted on 08/19/2013 9:32:01 PM PDT by Whenifhow
The true scope of the anti-firearm crusade of the United Nations, which began more than a dozen years ago, finally is coming into clear focus, as the White House readies to sign the Arms Trade Treaty adopted with U.S. support this past April by the U.N. General Assembly. The reach of this long-term, carefully crafted agenda is truly breathtaking, going far beyond the publicly articulated goals of even the most radical of homegrown gun-control groups.
Since the first major U.N. meeting in July 2001, officially launching the so-called Program of Action to Prevent, Combat and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All Its Aspects, this bureaucratic behemoth on the banks of the East River in New York City has been attempting to stretch its tentacles into the domestic regulation of firearms. If the administration of President Obama signs the Arms Trade Treaty, the U.N. will have taken a major step toward its ultimate goal regardless of whether the treaty is ever submitted to the Senate for ratification.

One need read no further than the introduction to this missive to understand its goal. The operative focus is strict regulation of civilian possession of firearms by the central or national government. This is necessary because some civilians misuse small arms by using them illegally or improperly stor[ing] them. The document bases this notion of government control of firearms and ammunition on international law an inaccurate interpretation of such body of laws, but one that fits conveniently the U.N.s agenda.
I thought the kenyaclown signed it on a weekend a while back.
Hold fire until you see the blue of their helmets.
There was confusion on that. One article said it was already signed and another one said - sometime in August.
They’re talking about a civil war. The 2’nd amendment is the only thing which lets many of us feel safe enough to go on living in the US at present.
That pretty much sums it up.
Be done with it and let’s get it on.
Cleaned up my accuracy this weekend with 2” groups on iron sights and less than 1” on my brother’s Luepold.
Don’t recall which on he had but, at least he quit using and bragging about his cheap azz, $199, mil dot. What a piece o crap.
Helped to be competing against each other and shooting from a completley new position. That of resting on your knee and toes off a bench, just so you could properly grip the weapon and get a good sight.
Was tough too. His sight practically sits on the rail. Very annoying as was his stoopit check rest, which sat a bit high as well.
Oh well. His gun, our fun.
Now if we could figure out how to get his rifle to feed properly out of a mag. As it is now, it’s a very expensive bolt action.
I do like his the left hand extension on the bolt carrier. Charging from the left is much easier and more natural.
Would be kewel if I could do that to my M1’s.
The colour of the helmet for them UN fella’s is blue, right?
and since cops seem intent on playing military, shooting all dogs and homeowners who believe they’re being home invaded, it is already tenuous at best.
i’d say maersk blue. fitting commie color.
Same deal every six months it seems. They will have to fight me for them.
Ain’t worried about it.
Bob Barr and sidekick ‘Franklin’ used to do a very funny radio show in Georgia, “Bob Barr’s Laws of the Universe.” UN gun grabbing in the US was an issue even then. These are serial murderers from war-torn AIDS-infested tribal rape death-by-machete wastelands telling folks in Martha’s Vineyard how to behave.
Seems to me that obambi would be committing an impeachable crime, by signing this treaty. No question, in my opinion.
I would like to see articles of impeachment being brought up in the House, while the treaty is debated in the Senate...
The UN only has as much power as we give them. If the US wanted to, it could shut down the UN almost immediately. Therefore, the US government views the UN as a useful tool and supports what they are doing.
Yeah, whatever. Molon labe, baby. It’s time we had this out.
Of course fast and furious showed us just how trustworthy governments and criminals are with small arms. I’ll be keeping mine. I will never surrender seems to a fascist troop in a blue helmet.
If foreign troops come here and try this, it will not end well at all.
The first thing the UN needs to do is start looking for another building in another country to spew their communist propaganda because if this treaty is signed and they try to enforce it, the first thing we do is take over their tower in the sky.
Sign away clown boy
Then come try and fetch them
Gonna find out it will be a whole lot harder than putting ink on paper you marxist goat humper
“you marxist goat humper”
Reggie Love and Kal Penn are goats?
This UN treaty is simply another milestone showing how much the elites fear armed citizen militias.
I was involved with independent contract work for an Israeli company when the Libyan civil war broke out. The armed Libyan militias in the provinces led the way in overthrowing the dictator Qaddhafi. These militias joined up with Libyan army deserters - the desertion rate was 75% - to create a fighting force that whipped Qaddhafi’s mercenary southern army and his elite guard.
The militia shot or hanged thousands of privileged elitists in Qaddhafi’s regime. This scared the crap out of elitists around the globe. Hillary demanded that the UN charge the militias with crimes against humanity. Of course, nothing came of that.
The fact remains, though, that elitists are very afraid, and this UN treaty will be one in a long list of efforts by the elites to disarm citizens.
Specially if you are in Chicago.
Murder capital, the same Chicago our current bitch thug is from.
“.......The fact remains, though, that elitists are very afraid, and this UN treaty will be one in a long list of efforts by the elites to disarm citizens.”....
They damn well better be afraid as they themselves will be high on the first list of those who are no longer. Many of us may pay the ultimate price in defending this country and I may be one of those, but defend it I will. To quote an earlier patriot, “Give me liberty or give me death”.
Perhaps we should update Give me liberty or give me death to “Give me liberty or I give you death”?
The Senate has already warned Barky they will not ratify this POS.
Reid v. Covert, 354 U.S. 1 (1957), was a landmark United States Supreme Court case in which the Court ruled that the Constitution supersedes international treaties ratified by the United States Senate.
