"U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has not signed, nor has the U.S. Congress ratified, a United Nations (U.N.) arms treaty. In fact, the content of such a treaty hasn't even been finalized yet. A first draft of the Arms Trade Treaty was created at a U.N. conference in July 2012, but action on the treaty was indefinitely suspended after the United States (among other countries) declined to support a vote on the current text and asked for more time.<quoted text>He supports the UN ban that will effect all guns in the USA..........
The Arms Trade Treaty has nothing to do with restricting the legal sale or ownership of guns within the United States. The aim of the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty is to combat the illicit international trade of arms by "tightening regulation of, and setting international standards for, the import, export and transfer of conventional weapons" in order to "close gaps in existing regional and national arms export control systems that allow weapons to pass onto the illicit market." The text of the proposed treaty specifically "reaffirms the sovereign right and responsibility of any State to regulate and control transfers of conventional arms that take place exclusively within its territory, pursuant to its own legal or constitutional systems," so even if such a treaty came to pass, U.S. rights and laws regarding the sale and ownership of small arms would still apply within the United States.
No such treaty could "bypass the normal legislative process in Congress," as all treaties to which the U.S. is a signatory must first be approved by a two-thirds vote of the U.S. Senate before they are considered to be ratified and binding.
The President of the United States cannot enact a "complete ban on all weapons for US citizens through the signing of international treaties with foreign nations." The right to keep and bear arms is guaranteed in the Constitution of the United States, and in the 1957 case Reid v. Covert, the U.S. Supreme Court established that the Constitution supersedes international treaties ratified by the U.S. Senate.
There is no "legal way around the 2nd Amendment" other than a further amendment to the Constitution that repeals or alters it, or a Supreme Court decision that radically reinterprets how the 2nd Amendment is to be applied."
You really have to stop paying attention to those spam emails you get, claiming untrue things, just to scare the population into voting for the GOP!
Their platform is lies, fear, hate, and "God is on our side". They use those, and then tell you they are all about the economy, which they have no new plan for whatsoever!
They have the Bush economists and the Bush plan, because it deserves a second try! At least in their opinion!
Good thing Romney is so far behind in this election and sliding further all the time.
It reaffirms my belief, that people in this country are brighter than the GOP would like them to be!
