BARR: The U.N. comes after America’s guns
Barack Obama’s OK of a gun-control treaty would destroy the Second Amendment
The true scope of the anti-firearm crusade of the United Nations, which began more than a dozen years ago, finally is coming into clear focus, as the White House readies to sign the Arms Trade Treaty adopted with U.S. support this past April by the U.N. General Assembly. The reach of this long-term, carefully crafted agenda is truly breathtaking, going far beyond the publicly articulated goals of even the most radical of homegrown gun-control groups.
Since the first major U.N. meeting in July 2001, officially launching the so-called “Program of Action to Prevent, Combat and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All Its Aspects,” this bureaucratic behemoth on the banks of the East River in New York City has been attempting to stretch its tentacles into the domestic regulation of firearms. If the administration of President Obama signs the Arms Trade Treaty, the U.N. will have taken a major step toward its ultimate goal — regardless of whether the treaty is ever submitted to the Senate for ratification.
According to experts familiar with this process, the mere act of signing the treaty — a responsibility that would fall to Secretary of State John Kerry — would “obligate” the U.S. government as a signatory not to act “contrary to” its terms. Those “terms” are, to quote Ross Perot, the “devil in the detail”— found not only within the four corners of the document itself, but in companion, foundational documents on which it is based.
The most relevant of these is the one titled,“National controls over the access of civilians to small arms and light weapons.”
One need read no further than the introduction to this missive to understand its goal. The operative focus is strict regulation of civilian possession of firearms by the “central” or national government. This is necessary because “some civilians misuse small arms” by using them illegally or “improperly storing]” them. The document bases this notion of government control of firearms and ammunition on “international law”— an inaccurate interpretation of such body of laws, but one that fits conveniently the U.N.’s agenda.
From this global perspective, the International Small Arms Control Standard module then directs, in excruciating detail, the manner in which national governments should restrict access to firearms and ammunition:
Restricting civilian possession of firearms only to those “at the lowest risk of misusing them.”
Limiting sales and other transfers of firearms only to commercial transactions at licensed “sales premises”(in other words, no transfers at gun shows).
Only persons licensed and periodically relicensed by the national government could possess firearms.
All firearms must be registered with the national government.
All persons wishing to possess a firearm must pass a rigorous exam administered by the national government.
All firearms must be stored in locked containers separate from ammunition, and “bolted to a heavy or immovable object.
Magazine capacity is limited to 10 rounds.
Possession of a firearm may only occur after a seven-day waiting period.
No civilian could own or possess a firearm for self-defense unless he first demonstrates a clear and convincing need.
Individuals licensed to own firearms are subject to periodic and random inspections of their homes or businesses.
If Congress fails to take swift action to prohibit the administration from implementing any part of the Arms Trade Treaty or taking any action pursuant to it, we now know exactly where we are headed.

What was wrong with the old rules that let
the gangsters and banksters on Wall Street
almost destroy our economy? If government
would just get out of the way, the "job creators"
could finish the job they started.

too bad for us, a few of those proposals had a lot of infrastructure jobs in them, but just so long as he fails then it's okay.
because we wouldn't want anything positive to happen while he's the POTUS.

Yes it is really upsetting that the republicans are forcing Harry Reid to set on jobs bills and bills that would lower energy cost.

Don't worry, nothing positive will happen during Braack' s reign. He wasn't selected to build this country up, but to destroy the nation from the inside out. He and the democrat party have done a whale of a job in that respect.

they've succeeded on that score - too bad the voters are aware of it as well.
lol
Nothing positive happend while the dems had the full congress and the presidency. Epic fail..........
The voters saw what you did from 2008-2010, and that's why Nancy got fired, and we now have 30 republican governors!

And now oblubmer wants to make the same mistakes again....and hope for different resutls...the president is dumb.

so none of you even know what his numerous jobs-bills contained huh?
well, that's great, ignorance must truly be blissful.
.
.
it's surprising that so many of you (and those you've elected) want him to fail.
you understand that if he fails, we all fail right?
or do you think that you wont be affected because of your political leaning?
you and your obstructionist leaders will be held responsible by the rest of us, your obsession with the ACA wont be forgotten by moderates in 2014.
.
.
the stock market is doing well, insurance premiums are going down more than expected, and the deficit is dropping quickly.
.
I would also add that he appears to be more concerned with the "greater-good" than with profit margin, probably because he's not campaigning anymore.
