Obama Will Sign UN Gun Treaty While Congress Is On Vacation
You heard it straight from the horse's mouth. Jay Carney said Obama will sign the UN Arms Trade Treaty "before the end of August...We believe it's in the interest of the United States." This is very strategic timing considering Congress is on a 5 week vacation lasting thru the month of August!
These back door tactics are nothing new for the Obama Administration, which is why we are using tactics of our own to stop his anti-gun agenda. We have the home fax numbers of every Senator so while they are absent from the Capitol we can demand they must not ratify the UN Gun Treaty once Obama signs it.
We CAN stop this international treaty from reaching American soil by killing it the United States Senate. The U.S Senate must ratify an international treaty for it to be effective. They would need 67 votes to ratify the treaty. Reach every U.S.. Senator at their home office; tell them you do not want this treaty in OUR United States!
Everything Obama tackles in office is strategically timed and politically motivated. He only looks out for himself, his fellow liberals, and his anti-gun agenda. After mass shootings the Administration would launch all-out attacks on our gun rights since the country would be more susceptible to change after a traumatic event. He made sure the Benghazi cover up was swept under the rug until he got re-elected. He will wait to attack certain issues until the 2014 Congressional elections so he'll know how many liberals are by his side.
Obama believes now is the best time to sign the UN Gun Treaty since Congress is out of Washington. He will have less scrutiny to worry about if Congress is not nearby. He also thinks the public eye is not paying attention too closely. It is the slow summer months, people are on vacation, Congress is out of Washington so nothing must be happening.
Obama may think he is being sneaky but we will make sure the public knows what he is up to and so will all 100 U.S. Senators. By sending faxes to each Senator's home office, they will realize how important this issue is to the American people. If we are reaching out to them while they are on vacation they will know they must take action. We must flood the home offices with faxes from Patriots across the country demanding our U.S. Senate does not ratify this international gun grab!
Gun advocates are weary of the language in the treaty including the fact that 'small arms and light weapons' are among the included weaponry that could be regulated by the United Nations. The UN Gun Treaty is a lot like ObamaCare; we will not know what it fully entails until it is implemented. It is impossible to trust the UN's reassurance that this treaty will not affect our current gun laws or our Second Amendment. After all, the UN Arms Trade Treaty had previously been rumored as a replacement of the Second Amendment.
The Obama Administration seems to be thrilled with the thought of global gun control. John Kerry cannot wait for it to be signed:
"As your review of the treaty continues, we strongly encourage your administration to recognize its textual, inherent and procedural flaws, to uphold our country's constitutional protections of civilian firearms ownership, and to defend the sovereignty of the United States, and thus to decide not to sign this treaty."We must make it clear TODAY to the Senate and the White House that the Second Amendment must be protected and that they must reject any and all U.N. Gun Control. Tell them to KEEP THEIR TREATY AWAY FROM OUR GUNS!
All of the evidence suggested Trayvon threw the first punch, Trayvon was on top, Trayvon was unloading significant damage onto Zimmerman, and Zimmerman used deadly force to defend himself. No matter what the facts are, the anti-gunners continue to push their agenda to try to get what they want.
It is our job as Americans and Second Amendment Patriots to meet the anti-gun crowd head on. We will fight any legislation that tries to destroy our self-defense laws or our Second Amendment rights. We need your help in order to launch a significant attack against the anti-gun agenda. They use smoke, mirrors, and lies to push their agenda while we show the facts. So many resources are needed in order to be successful against the anti-gun crowd. Anything you can give us will be substantial in maintaining our goal of protecting America's Second Amendment!
The uncertainty begins in the discussion of small arms. Where will the regulations on our small arms start, and where will they stop? They are even trying to include ammunition regulations in the Arms Trade Treaty! Will the United Nations try to impose international licensing requirements, an international registry, or international?
The last negotiations for an Arms Trade Treaty took place in July 2012, just four months before the Presidential election. Obama did not want to take a big stance for global gun control just months before his re-election but now he has made it clear he is for total gun control. He also told voters he would not be re-visiting negotiations for an Arms Trade treaty but here we are.
Since his re-election it has become clearer than ever what is at the top of his agenda; taking our guns away! The Obama Administration has been exploiting tragedies since the election to push gun control at the city, state, federal, and now GLOBAL level.
Our Senate took a stance before the Presidential election when 51 of them wrote Obama a letter saying they would not support an Arms Trade Treaty. We must let our entire U.S. Senate know we do not support international gun control. They must not ratify this international treaty.
