With the democrats controlling the Senate , our only hope is that some democrats will vote againist the treaty or that the republicans will be able to filibuster.
Americans' Right To Arms is a Project of Patriot PAC
Obama Administration Rushing to Finalize UN Gun Grab Treaty
ATT Vote on Its Way to Harry Reid's Senate
UN Only Needs "Consensus" to Finalize
Obama administration gun control fanatics have teamed up with leftwing United Nations apparatchiks to swiftly finalize and foist upon America a global Arms Trade Treaty that will gut our Second Amendment rights! The UN Gun Treaty is on a fast track to tyranny – and it MUST be stopped NOW!
Gun-grabbing leftists, including in the Senate, claim there is no threat to our Second Amendment. THEY LIE!
Obama IS DETERMINED to pass this treaty, and is pressing Harry Reid hard in the U.S. Senate to leverage deals in the Congress to get this DONE!
Obama has fast-tracked United States support in the United Nations for this global treaty, with EVERY INTENTION OF DESTROYING OUR GUN RIGHTS.
Economist and gun rights expert John Lott Jr. was a colleague of Barack Obama during the 1990s at University of Chicago Law School. Lott at the time was rudely dismissed by the arrogant Obama as "the gun guy" and told flatly by Barack Obama, "I don't believe people should be able to own guns."
And Lott says what is most telling is Obama's record, not "…my word for his views on guns; look at the positions Obama took on guns during his time in Chicago. Obama supported a ban on handguns in 1996, and a ban on the sale of all semiautomatic guns in 1998 (a ban that would have encompassed the vast majority of guns sold in the U.S.). In 2004, he advocated banning gun sales within five miles of a school or park (essentially a ban on virtually all gun stores), and he has worked in other ways to support bans. He was on the board of directors for the Joyce Foundation, the largest private funder of research to ban gun ownership in the U.S."
This treaty will result in mandatory gun registration – and registration leads inexorably to confiscation. All modern history proves this is true!
For example, Nazi policies repressed civilian gun ownership and eradicated gun owners in Germany as well as throughout occupied Europe. In every country after invading, Nazis used pre-war registries of gun owners to confiscate firearms, and round up gun owners. Many gun owners were shot, or simply disappeared. Following confiscation, a disarmed populace left the Nazis free to wreak their evil unchecked. "Registration makes it easy for a tyrannical government to confiscate firearms and to make prey of its subjects," scholar Stephen P. Halbrook has written.
Many other experts agree that gun registration correlates perfectly to confiscation. "The only purpose of gun registration is gun confiscation, whether it is done individually and piecemeal, as the legal requirements to own a gun become more and more difficult, or en mass, when the government feels the necessity to disarm its citizens in order to further its control," as gun rights advocate Dean Weingarten has noted.
Invading Nazi troops in Holland in 1940 immediately nailed up posters announcing a ban on all firearms. From Die Deutsche Wochenshau, May 15, 1940.
Believe the U.N. propaganda that our unalienable right to arms; our natural right to self-defense will not be infringed by this global disarmament juggernaut? "Our common goal is clear: a robust and legally binding Arms Trade Treaty that will have a real impact on the lives of those millions of people suffering from the consequences of armed conflict, repression and armed violence," said United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon at the opening of the conference. "It is ambitious, but it is achievable." The ATT is popularly known among its advocates as the U.N. Small Arms Treaty, but they want you to suspend reason and believe that it has no designs upon YOUR gun rights!
130 members of the House have more sense, and KNOW the treaty poses a direct threat to our Second Amendment. Despite the denials by the United Nations' Office for Disarmament Affairs, it is a foregone conclusion that the final treaty will provide the U.N. means to "prohibit citizens of sovereign nations from possessing firearms, and interfere with the legal trade in small arms and light weapons" – UNLESS YOU FORCE OBAMA AND THE U.S. SENATE TO STOP CAPITULATING TO THIS GLOBAL SURRENDER OF OUR RIGHTS – TODAY!
On June 29, Congressional ATT resistors in the House sent a strongly worded letter to Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stating that the treaty infringes on the "fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms" and confirming that the United States government does not have the right to support a treaty that violates the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. But…
WE NEED ACTION FROM THE SENATE NOW! DEMAND THE U.S. WITHDRAW AS A NEGOTIATING PARTICIPANT FROM THIS TREATY – WHICH WE CANNOT VETO – OR OUR NATION WILL BE ENSNARED IN ITS TERMS, WITH OR WITHOUT SENATE RATIFICATION!
Obama MUST be stopped from signing on to this treaty! Obama is the most explicitly anti-gun occupant of the White House in history. Tell the pro-Second Amendment House to shame and embolden the U.S. Senate to stand for the Constitution!
Democrats claim gun right proponents are grandstanding the issue for political gain, and insist the treaty does not threaten the Second Amendment. Michigan Democrat senator Carl Levin – who has consistently earned an "F" from the NRA and other gun rights organizations for his gun control voting record – is a noisy ATT Senate advocate who says our fears are "misplaced." Levin has voted for the semiautomatic gun ban, government background checks at gun shows and to close the so-called "gun show loophole," among countless other pro-gun control bills.
If you think we are exaggerating this threat to the Second Amendment, remember:
Barack Obama is on the record as having either voted for, advocated for, or approved policies promoting:
- The banning of private ownership of ALL handguns
- The banning of private ownership of ALL semiautomatic firearms, including hunting rifles
- Federal licensing and central databasing for ALL firearms that are "issued" through the central government as "exceptions" to the general population bans, and
- Prosecution of anyone using a firearm for self-defense
Obama's administration has relentlessly assaulted the Second Amendment, bringing an avalanche of new gun restrictions and regulations by Executive branch edicts, to "address" faux gun enforcement crises his agencies have themselves created – such as the gunwalking scandal of Fast and Furious!
Now, we know the U.N. must appear ever-busy with meetings and conferences in order to 'justify' their paychecks in the eyes of taxpayers like you. After all, without funding from your U.S. tax dollars, the United Nations would cease to exist, just like negotiations for the Arms Trade Treaty, or 'Small Arms Treaty' if you prefer, would cease to exist if ONLY our elected representatives would act!
Congress needs to ENACT legislation banning the use of taxpayer funds for U.N. negotiations seeking to restrict OUR Second Amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
Thanks to YOUR outpouring of support for this desperately needed protection of our Second Amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms, the co-called Rehberg Amendment has PASSED the U.S. House Committee on Appropriations Fiscal Year 2013 State and Foreign Operations Appropriations bill, by a bi-partisan vote of 30 to 20 in H.R. 2827, and then moved to the calendar in the full House.
This vital amendment mandates that NO taxpayer funds can be used to negotiate ANY United Nations treaty that would restrict the Second Amendment rights of any United States citizen or interfere with the rights of our 50 states to regulate firearms and ammunition.
Since before the Revolutionary War – won because our Patriot forebears were armed and free to defend their liberty – We the American People have stood fast on our unalienable Right to Arms! Among our U.N. allies, Great Britain's formidable regent Elizabeth II, in her day an accomplished marksman and hunter, seems to understand and respect this far better than Obama! What a travesty!
Every legal gun owning American or gun rights supporter, just like you, is concerned about the future of our Second Amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms, in the face of the international gun grab being stealthily facilitated by the Obama administration and the United Nations. That's why now, more than ever before, we MUST work together to keep the pressure on Washington to ENDORSE AND ENFORCE the REHBERG AMENDMENT of H.R. 2827 and the Second Amendment Sovereignty Act, S. 2205, in the Senate – and secure our Right to Arms!
Earlier this year, U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS) introduced the Second Amendment Sovereignty Act, S. 2205, which if passed will prohibit this current anti-gun rights ploy in the U.N., as well as block all future presidents from using "the voice, vote, and influence of the United States, in connection with negotiations for a United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, to restrict in any way the rights of United States citizens under the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, or to otherwise regulate domestic manufacture, assembly, possession, use, transfer, or purchase of firearms, ammunition, or related items, including small arms, light weapons, or related materials."
Despite all the airy-fairy press releases claiming the contrary, and public relations damage control being done by this administration, the U.N. Gun Grab does not just affect heavy weapons and machinery like tanks and helicopters all under the banner of defending human "rights" in war-torn third-world countries – NO INDEED!
The U.N. Small Arms Treaty seeks to DISMANTLE AND DESTROY legal gun ownership in America with costly regulation and the creation of an international database of gun owners. It even lists OUR legal rifles, shotguns and handguns as contraband right along with the illegal heavy weapons in the hands of mass murderers, rapists, and other scum of the earth!
Of course, to this high-and-mighty administration, legal gun-owning Americans are at best latent criminals, always a cause for concern. Never mind our Constitutional rights! But we still have the power to check the federal government when it gets out of our control and our elected officials fail to hold themselves accountable to us – the AMERICAN people!
Only by preserving our gun rights can we be free in the breach to stand our ground against the freedom-crushing "laws" and federal tyranny that imperil us… loss of liberty, corruption, and overspending that has bankrupted our national economy and our own checking accounts.
We're already making headway in the House with the Rehberg Amendment victory in committee, but now we need to seek an official victory and see these protections in S. 2205 become LAW!
If we fail to stand up for our gun rights and demand that our elected officials ENDORSE AND ENFORCE S.2205 to preserve the Second Amendment, you can bet your last dollar that Barack Hussein Obama will grab our guns, and he'll use the United Nations (and this so-called 'treaty') to do it!
In less than four weeks, the United Nations will begin negotiations on the bill that will destroy our Second Amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms AND bankrupt American gun manufacturers through costly regulation… UNLESS WE STOP IT NOW!
With the help of Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, the United Nations is only weeks away from beginning the process of stripping law-abiding American citizens of our Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms. The proposed global "Small Arms Treaty" is cleverly premised to fight "terrorism," "insurgency" and even "international crime syndicates" – but it goes much further…
In a nutshell, this is no less than an international gun-grab that works by overriding our national sovereignty.
The U.N. Gun Ban Treaty shreds the Tenth Amendment, as well as decimating our Second Amendment rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, by "authorizing" the federal government to assert itself (and its preemptive powers) over state regulatory prerogatives!
Sens. Jerry Moran (R-KS) and Rand Paul (R-KY) need your help to pass the Second Amendment Sovereignty Act, S. 2205, which will BAN U.S. funding of the United Nations Gun Ban negotiations, and PROTECT our Constitutionally protected right to arms. Without funding, the international conspiracy to rob us of our Second Amendment right to keep and arms will be stopped in its tracks!
The Obama administration is working hand-in-hand with the United Nations to ban the import and sale of firearms and ammunition around the world – including right here in the United States! The U.N.'s Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) is no less than an open attack on our Second Amendment rights, an assault on the Constitution of the United States of America, and Barack Hussein Obama's backing and support of it amounts to no less than treason.
The preliminary conferences and pre-meetings are already out of the way, and the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty Conference will be held July 2-27 in CLOSED SESSIONS in New York City UNLESS WE ACT NOW! To defend our constitutional freedoms, conservative U.S. Sens. Jerry Moran and Rand Paul have introduced the Second Amendment Sovereignty Act, S. 2205, on Capitol Hill. But they desperately need our help as the Senate is still controlled by Obama's Leftwing zealots, who are intent on disarming America!
S. 2205 reads:
No funds may be obligated or expended to use the voice, vote, and influence of the United States, in connection with negotiations for a United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, to restrict in any way the rights of United States citizens under the second amendment to the Constitution of the United States, or to otherwise regulate domestic manufacture, assembly, possession, use, transfer, or purchase of firearms, ammunition, or related items, including small arms, light weapons, or related materials.
Make no mistake: If the U.N. Small Arms Treaty passes, our guns are GONE.
This bill to protect YOUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS FROM THE GLOBALISTS, SOCIALISTS AND ONE-WORLDER DISARMERS OF THE U.N. will not pass without YOUR support. Together, we CAN stop this assault on our liberty, by cutting off the funding for the gun ban's negotiations – but we must act TODAY to make sure law-abiding gun-owning Americans like you and I are not punished and stripped of our Right to Keep and Bear Arms by the anti-gun Obama administration!
Right now, the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations has been assigned S. 2205 for review and a committee vote. The best way to protect our gun rights from the U.N. gun grab is to make sure no deal on the 'treaty' is ever reached – but in the meantime, we need YOU to contact your Senators and Representatives and tell them TO STAND UP FOR YOUR GUN RIGHTS – NOT A U.N. SELL-OUT!
S. 2205 MUST be passed as a safety measure in the Obama/Harry Reid Senate, and only YOUR continuing support and hard work can make it happen!
Members of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations include: John Kerry (Chairman), Richard G. Lugar (Ranking Member), Barbara Boxer, Robert Menendez, Benjamin L. Cardin, Robert P. Casey Jr, Jim Webb, Jeanne Shaheen, Christopher Coons, Richard J. Durbin, Tom Udall, Bob Corker, James E. Risch, Marco Rubio, James M. Inhofe, Jim DeMint, Johnny Isakson, John Barrasso, and Mike Lee.
Remind them, and ALL THE CONGRESS, which controls "the power of the purse" to DEFUND THIS GUN GRAB and protect our Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms regardless of who is in the Oval Office!
With the full-backing of the Obama administration, the United Nations is one step closer to controlling your guns – announcing that the final terms for the ANTI-GUN Small Arms Treaty will be presented this July!
The United Nations Small Arms Treaty is a "peace charade" signed onto by the Obama administration as part of his anti-Second Amendment gun-grabbing agenda. And right now, the United Nations and Barack Obama are collaborating on a worldwide conspiracy to register, ban, and CONFISCATE YOUR GUNS!
You and I must do everything in our power to STOP this Obama scam from becoming a reality!
We've obtained a draft of the treaty wording… and it is conniving at its finest. The United Nations, with the full support of the Obama administration wants a "COMPREHENSIVE" arms trade treaty and they're hoping to pass it under the banner of making the world a safer place…
Here is the exact wording of the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty, thus far:
- "It must require States (countries – like the United States!) to assess the risk that serious violations of international humanitarian law and human rights law may be committed with the weapons being transferred. This may very well take away your individual rights to buy or sell a gun!
- Secondly, it must include within its scope all conventional weapons, including small arms.
- The treaty must also include ammunition within its scope.
- It must ensure that there are no loopholes by covering all types of transfers, including activities such as transit, trans-shipment, as well as loans and leases."
Together, you and I MUST hold every elected official on Capitol Hill accountable for ensuring this abominable treaty IS NEVER RATIFIED by the United States – We MUST counter the anti-gun pressure taking over Capitol Hill, so right here and right now we need to get to work to fight the U.N. gun-grab!
Obama is keeping mum while on the campaign trail, but behind closed doors he and Hillary are working 'Fast & Furious' with the United Nations to destroy the Second Amendment for good. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced that the Obama administration is working "hand-in-glove with the United Nations" to pass this sickening gun-grabbing treaty that tramples on our Constitutional guarantee to keep and bear arms.
And don't be fooled by noble pretenses. This drafted treaty has its sights set on using bureaucracy to target ALL conventional weapons and ALL ammunition – it targets free citizens, sports hunters and collectors along with the criminals.
Former United Nation's ambassador John Bolton has cautioned gun owners about the Arms Trade Treaty and says the U.N. "is trying to act as though this is really just a treaty about international arms trade between nation states, but there's no doubt that the real agenda here is domestic firearms control."
I know I can count on you to tirelessly fight against the United Nations' Small Arms Treaty, but we have to start fighting back against the anti-gun agenda before it gains more traction in the Left-controlled mainstream media. We must make sure the United Nations will never tell us AMERICAN gun owners what we can and cannot have – even if Barack Obama is more than happy to bow deeply to tyranny, click his heels and hand over our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
The United States is the largest exporter of weapons in the world; if we are not onboard, the whole effort falls apart and our Second Amendment Right to Bear Arms is safe once again. If we act right now, TODAY, we can defeat Obama's efforts to CONFISCATE firearms owned by private citizens like YOU.
Unfortunately, the United States Senate (which ratifies international treaties) is STILL controlled by Leftwing zealots intent on disarming America. That's why we need YOU to BLAST FAX EVERY UNITED STATES SENATOR to let them know you OPPOSE the United Nations Small Arms Treaty!STOP THE ASSAULT ON OUR SECOND AMENDMENT BY THE UN!
BLAST FAX CONGRESS TO PROTECT OUR RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS!
DO NOT LET OBAMA DISARM THE UNITED STATES!
If passed by the U.N. (and ratified by the U.S. Senate) the U.N. "Small Arms Treaty" would FORCE sovereign national governments to:
- Make law-abiding citizens jump through even more bureaucratic hoops just to own a firearm legally by enacting tougher licensing requirements;
- Confiscate and destroy all "unauthorized" firearms owned by non-government entities;
- BAN the trade, sale and private ownership of ALL semi-automatic weapons;
- Create an INTERNATIONAL gun registry, setting the stage for full-scale gun CONFISCATION.
Obama is hiding behind the U.N. and a noble banner to attack our Constitution and disarm America. The U.N. Small Arms Treaty is no less than a worldwide takeover of your guns, and it is being directly supported by the Obama administration in order to control YOU and ABOLISH YOUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS!
The goal of this U.N. Small Arms Treaty is to BAN and SEIZE firearms owned by YOU – a private law-abiding citizen. Judging by this past week's committee at the United Nations, they are right on schedule to begin grabbing your guns by the end of this year.
The Second Amendment guarantees your fundamental right to self protection, and is America's bulwark against tyranny and oppression. It MUST NOT be abridged!
Please, will you fax our WHOLE Congress and the U.S. Senate in support of the Second Amendment Sovereignty Act, S. 2205 to make sure they stand up for your Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms and do not FUND nor SIGN this international gun-grabbing treaty?
