As we have learned, this administration is fairly deft at getting what they want even if Congress, the Supreme Court and ‘We The People’ say differently.
Our 2nd amendment rights are being threatened as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has announced that the
“Obama Administration will be working hand-in-glove with the United Nations to pass a new “Small Arms Treaty.”
This is naturally couched in terms of fighting terrorism, insurgency, and international crime syndicates (get a clue– secure the border and start profiling those you know are likely to be terrorists!), but it’s really a massive, GLOBAL gun control scheme.
What do you think Ted would have say about ‘Hil’s idea? This Small Arms Treaty will enact tougher licensing requirements (duplication, added cost and paperwork), confiscate & destroy all unauthorized firearms and create an international registry. Our only hope is to stop it in the Senate because the President will never veto this.
According to the Washington Times, he has already by executive order, banned the re-importation of American made M-1 Garand and Carbine rifles used during the Korean War and stored in South Korea. These are considered antique, collector rifles and popular with history buffs and the Civilian Marksmanship Program which has bought them to teach kids about shooting, history and gun safety.
Lest you think this is overblown and unimportant, don’t forget during Hurricane Katrina law enforcement officials went door to door confiscating privately owned, legally registered guns from the public.
Attorney General Eric Holder has said he does not believe the 2nd Amendment gives individuals the right to bear arms. What about you? Take this USA Today pole.
