Obama Administration To Sign UN Arms Trade Treaty -We Must Kill It In The Senate-
Assistant Secretary of State Thomas Countryman confirmed that the Obama Administration will quickly sign the dreaded UN Arms Trade Treaty when given the chance. Countryman said they will be signing the treaty in "the very near future."
The treaty will be open for signatures on June 3rd. We CAN stop this international treaty from reaching American soil by killing it the United States Senate. The U.S. Senate must ratify an international treaty for it to be effective. They would need 67 votes to ratify the treaty. Tell your U.S. Senators that you do not want this treaty in these United States!
Radical delegates from over 150 countries have agreed upon the final details of a binding international treaty that requires countries to regulate and control the export of arms.
Many gun advocates are weary of the language in the treaty including the fact that 'small arms and light weapons' are among the included weaponry that could be regulated by the United Nations. They do not trust the UN's reassurance that this treaty will not affect our current gun laws or our Second Amendment. After all, the UN Arms Trade Treaty had previously been rumored as a replacement of the Second Amendment.
We must make it clear TODAY to the Senate and the White House that the Second Amendment must be protected and that they must reject any and all U.N. Gun Control. Tell them to KEEP THEIR TREATY AWAY FROM OUR GUNS!
Senator Jerry Moran has given us some confidence but they must be reminded that:
"The U.S. Senate is united in strong opposition to a treaty that puts us on level ground with dictatorships who abuse human rights and arm terrorists, but there is real concern that the Administration feels pressured to sign a treaty that violates our Constitutional rights."
We must not take his word for it though; there are 99 other Senators that need to be reminded that we will not stand for an international treaty.
With an agreement reached it just has to be signed by Obama, our last defense is the U.S. Senate. Anti Gunners will need a 2/3 super majority in a Senate vote to ratify the treaty. We must therefore be sure to remind every member of the Senate to protect our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms from the overreaching arm of the United Nations.
The uncertainty begins in the discussion of small arms. Where will the regulations on our small arms start, and where will they stop? They are even trying to include ammunition regulations in the Arms Trade Treaty!
Will the United Nations try to impose international licensing requirements, an international registry, or international regulations for the trade, sale, importation, and private ownership of our semi-automatic firearms?
The last negotiations for an Arms Trade Treaty took place in July 2012, just four months before the Presidential election. Obama did not want to take a big stance for global gun control just months before his re-election but now he has made it clear he is for total gun control. He also told voters he would not be re-visiting negotiations for an Arms Trade treaty but here we are.
Since his re-election it has become clearer than ever what is at the top of his agenda; taking our guns away! The Obama Administration has been exploiting tragedies since the election to push gun control at the city, state, federal, and now GLOBAL level.
Our Senate took a stance before the Presidential election when 51 of them wrote Obama a letter saying they would not support an Arms Trade Treaty. We must let our entire U.S. Senate know we do not support international gun control. They must not ratify this international treaty.
