Senate MUST NOT Ratify UN Small Arms Treaty!
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
We have warned our readers numerous times that the Obama Administration WILL make an effort, at some point in his term in office, to institute some form of gun control on Americans. He has made a number of attempts so far and he is not done yet -- not by a long shot.
There can be no question the "Obamatons" have little regard for the US Constitution. It is but a speed bump in their drive toward establishment of a Socialist/Marxist America. And they will use whatever method or means necessary to accomplish their goal.
After their withering pressure on the Supreme Court produced a ruling in their favor on Obamacare they are convinced they now have the highest court in the land in their pocket and, therefore, only one thing stands in the way of their goal of that Socialist/Marxist America -- millions of guns in the hands of some pretty PO'ed Americans!
But, WAIT, as they say on the TV commercials. Obama has help coming from, where else -- the UN!
Remember the UN Small Arms Treaty we have warned about for at least four years now? Well, it's here. John Kerry, the current US Secretary of State, just signed the accursed thing.
The Washington Times said: "The language of the draft agreement is so expansive it wouldn’t take an Obama-appointed judge very long to extend the treaty to cover the domestic firearms market as well. If American jurists continue to be enamored by the popular trend to consider international precedence when making U.S. rulings, you can kiss the Second Amendment goodbye."

Back in October of 2009, the then US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, publicly announced that the US WOULD support UN negotiations of an Arms Trade Treaty to regulate international gun trafficking. The Bush administration, you may remember, and, notably, former Permanent U.S. Representative to the United Nations, John Bolton, OPPOSED negotiations of this treaty for years.
Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton has said: "Conventional arms transfers are a crucial national security concern for the United States, and we have always supported effective action to control the international transfer of arms. The United States is prepared to work hard for a strong international standard in this area."
The US then joined a vote, which was almost unanimous; to adopt a resolution, which would set a schedule, a timetable, on the proposed Arms Trade Treaty. Within that resolution was a proposal to finalize the accord in the year 2012.
It is now 2013 and the process has officially begun -- and our President supports it.
Do you begin to understand, just a bit maybe, why those little militia units continue to pop up in the woods across America? Still think they are ALL completely crazy, huh? Look. There are times when paranoia can be your friend -- especially when someone is out to get you!
It would be a mistake to think we have a "delusional" Commander-in-Chief. You may think he SEEMS to believe he has dictatorial powers already.
Take a deep breath. You might want to sit down for this ...
The plain truth is -- HE DOES HAVE SUCH POWER -- and he is giving himself even more by issuing executive orders the American public knows nothing about -- but -- when enacted will have the force of LAW and will place every single American under the direct command of the President of the United States.
Congress? Forget Congress. They will have zero power. The ONLY person with power will be the President and he will be, IN FACT, the Dictator of America.
I've been taken to task a few times for my defense of "honor." Maybe some of my critics will begin to see why I feel honor is so extremely important in our national leaders.
I believe the Founders of this country, when they wrote the founding documents, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, just ASSUMED that the generations of Americans to come would instinctively elect "men of honor" to fill the important post of President. As we now know -- they were mistaken.
Of course, I have no way of knowing, for certain, what is in the minds of the people who would take America's freedom and make Americans slaves. but I must tell you, I took an oath, way back in the 1950's, as a soldier, and again in the 1960's as a law enforcement officer, and for the life of me, I do not recall an expiration date on that oath. All of us who raised our hands swore to uphold the constitution and to protect it. We swore to protect this country from all enemies foreign and domestic.
I am not unique. Millions of Americans have taken the same oath. It seems to me that I am bound by that oath to alert my fellow Americans to a threat I perceive aimed at this country and its citizens.
America has reached a tipping point. Events over the next few weeks and months will determine if America holds on to her remaining freedom and liberty or slides into the septic tank of socialism and enslavement to the state. We are already a far distance down that slippery slope.
I suggest that we all contact our Senators (while we still have that freedom) and insist that they resist ratification of the UN Small Arms Treaty when it comes before them.
And finally, the powers of the President, I mentioned above, can only be brought under control by amending the constitution. Since "honor" can no longer be assumed in our Presidents, or our presidential candidates, then I suggest we need to amend the constitution in order to protect the constitution, itself, and the freedom of the American people from a "rogue" President.
Yes. Sadly, we HAVE come to this.
