Senate To Gut Second Amendment?

guns SC Senate To Gut Second Amendment?

As New York City plays host to a conference that will shape the UN Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) into final form, most 2nd Amendment supporters are concerned that stealth language or overly broad applications woven into the document will serve to separate Americans from their right to keep and bear arms. After all, why else would preliminary versions of the Treaty be so difficult to obtain and U.N. pre-conference position statements remain consistently absent from the internet?

Barack Hussein Obama leads the most anti-gun rights Administration in the nation’s history. Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Janet Napolitano, and recently appointed ATF Acting Director B. Todd Jones have spoken often and passionately about the importance of implementing more restrictive gun control legislation.

But the gun-grabbing Regime will not be able to ratify the UN’s global gun control measure without first securing a 2/3rds majority of Senators to vote in favor. And it won’t be easy to convince 67 politicians to sign onto a document that countless critics have spent nearly a decade rightly representing as a worldwide assault on the 2nd Amendment. Especially not as the American public must once again be told that the document has to be “passed” in order to find out what’s IN it!

Late last year, the Heritage Foundation obtained an ATT “Draft Paper” from an NGO participating in the Treaty mark-up. The Paper makes it clear that the finished product would be broad in scope, controlling everything “from rifle scopes to battleships.” And although the Treaty purports to monitor only “international arms transfers,” document language shows the UN also wishes to control “internal transfers” as “any firearm transfer—meaning any change in ownership…might conceivably somehow affect another nation…”

Therefore, the ATT will demand that signatories control and monitor “transfers including ‘transport’ across national territory.” To accomplish this, a nation would necessarily “maintain records of all imports and shipments of arms that transit their territory,” creating records on “the type of arms transferred and their ‘end users’.” So as international records would be kept of all weapons bought and sold within the United States, the Treaty would create not only a global arms registry but the rules by which arms might be transferred and to whom.

Would Senators sympathetic to global arms control try to slip these and other unconstitutional ATT edicts past American voters?

DC politicians—including Republicans—have already written purposely misleading and legally ineffective language into both the 2012 and 2013 National Defense Authorization Acts for the sole purpose of deceiving the American public into believing that their constitutional rights were being looked after. As for treaties, they commonly include “reservations”, that is, language designed to “define and limit the effect of a ratified treaty.” A few dedicated, gun-grabbing Senators might get the idea of attaching a codicil to the ATT, claiming it would prevent the ratified Treaty from imposing upon the 2nd Amendment rights of the American people, thereby safeguarding the right to keep and bear arms.

Of course, they wouldn’t bother to inform Americans that the Arms Trade Treaty specifically forbids any reservations that are “incompatible with the object and purpose” of the Treaty! Would members of the Washington political class be so dishonest as to try such an underhanded stunt?

It’s doubtful that a sufficient number of Senators would risk the fury of the NRA and gun-owning voters. But then again, stranger things have certainly happened in the nation’s capitol.  After all, a Supreme Court Chief Justice has just prostituted both himself and the Constitution!

Maybe keeping tabs on the Senate wouldn’t be such a bad idea.

  1. This is NOT in any way the concern of the U.N. ——– it IS in the U.S. Constitution. Send letters, emails and do phone calls to your Senators and Representatives so they know your disgust.

    • 912inMA says:

      I have been tweeting, posting on facebook, speaking to people & electeds for a while now. We cannot allow the regime to sign away our Constitutional rights! Once they grab this one, all the rest are in line to go.

  2. rayrmelc123 says:

    They can do what they want. They won't get my weapons while I am still alive

    • All of these S.O.Bs can go straight to hell.I wiil stand side by side with my fellow americans.I have emailed and called my senators.

  3. Any senator that vote to restrict gun rights will him/her self on the street come November or the next time they are up for re-election. Are they really that stupid to think the citizens are going to give up their weapons and then allow the government to take over all our freedoms? A peoples without weapons are a peoples in slavery.

    • Angelicsweep says:

      Yes, they do think that. Politicians have gotten away with too much for far too long…it is PAST time to put a stop to it. obama is an ILLEGAL president, enacting ILLEGAL laws and ILLEGALLY making executive orders to get his way, tromping over the American people and our CONSTITUTION as he goes. Doesn’t anyone care that we have SEVENTY-ONE ADMITTED COMMUNIST in Congress? No telling how many more who have remained silent…in BOTH parties! The BEST way to STOP this is to NEVER re-elect! Give them TERM LIMITS by VOTING THEM OUT! If they have been there over two terms…KICK THEIR BUTTS OUT! Stop putting the same people back in to keep doing the same ole stuff that has got us in the position we are in now! IT IS A MYTH that they need more time to get something done…just look at what obama has done to this country in ONE TERM! Putting him back in office will be the DEATH of this nation!

      • capa760 says:

        Last I heard, they have identified 76 and counting. The Senate voting records,with their earmarks, the UN-authorized earmarks tacked onto worthy bills are costing taxpayers billions of dollars if not the trillions that we are being buried under. How anyone can vote for the Washington State Senators, again and again, without accountablity, is beyond the Republican voters, who vote against them. There is no common sense on spending or cost cutting.

    • I would like to believe that the american people would NOT stand for it, but what I see tells me different. The blind sheep will follow Obama to hell.

    How incredibly far sighted were our founders. Well documente were their differences…, differences on virtually all matter of subject save for two upon which agreement was universal, the first being that men, whenever they into government, they cannot be trusted. And the second, owing its reasoning to the first was the absolute imperative for the Second Amendment.

    AMERICA:
    WE THE PEOPLE, do not care, how this United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (UNATT), come out; AS LONG AS THEY DISARM THE MURDERERS,, THE TERRORISTS, THE GANG BANGERS and all those who are harb illegal GUNS and ILLEGAL ALIENS. They CAN NOT DEPRIVE the law abiding citizens to own guns to protect themselves. ACTUALLY, it is time for US, LAW ABIDING CITIZENS TO FORM A "MILITIA", We DO NOT KNOW what is in the MIND OF OBAMA, IF HE FORBID THE CITIZENS FROM OWNING GUNS FOR OUR PROTECTION, then we MUST BE READY to protect ourselves. DISARMING THE CRIMINALS AND MURDERERS IS DIFFERENT FORM FORBIDDING THE LAW ABIDING CITIZENS TO PROTECT OURSELVES. If Obama declares MARSHAL LAW, then AMERICA WILL BE UNDER HIS "OBNOXIOUS FEET" to control US ALL. COMMUNISM IS THE NAME OF THE GAME. AND WE MUST PLAY TO WIN… WE MUST REMEMBER, OBAMA IS CONTROLLING EVERYTHING , from our money, businesses, jobs and our traditional lives…We left with nothing, EXCEPT OUR RIGHTS TO FIGHT….

    • The laws UN are implementing only affect LAW-ABIDING citizens. All gun laws affect only law-abiding citizens. Criminals do not regard any laws anyway and pay no attention to them. Thus these laws affect good citizens.

      What irony! What ALL gun laws do is disarm its law-abiding citizens and only empower criminals and tyrants!

  7. The Imperialist Japanese did not invade America in WW-II because they knew the citizens were well armed. I think Congressman West was right on when he said that there were some 70+ communist sitting in the White House. Now they want to give our sovereignty to the UN lock stock and barrel. No doubt, HIllary Clinton and her co-horts are about to do just that. I do not think our Marines will take to kindly to wearing blue helmets.

    Come and get them i will put a few slugs in you before my dead cold hands.

  9. I would like to remind you sheep that the massacres committed by Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, etc., were able to because the citizens were UN-armed! (pun intended).

    I would also like to remind you that the lesser dicktators like Castro, Kim, Chavez, Ahminijad, and many South Americans dicktators can control the population sheep because they are UN-armed!

    May I remind you what would happen if cowboys had to raise sheep that had claws, horns and sharp teeth??? All of sudden it’s a game changer, huh?

    • flowers says:

      I agree completely with you but because our children are not taught history they will not know the horrors they let themselves in for by ceding their God given rights to the government under the guise of safety.

    • The american sheeple have NO idea it is coming soon! If you study the Third Reich, you will quickly see we ARE where Germany was just as Hitler took over. Stupid people REFUSE to believe it can, and WILL happen here. They have had it too good for too long.

  10. Seeks_the_truth says:

    As a Native, just the word "treaty" raises a red flag.
    Remember this date, July 27, 2012. This is the date for the vote on this treaty.
    If it passes, it will be the day America died.
    The government controls our money, homes, transportation, movement, energy sources, water, electricity, farms, what we can eat, even whether we live or die.
    This is the last hurdle to a Marxist state.

    • flowers says:

      As much as it pains me to type this and even think it, I believe that we will be sold out to the UN and our country will no longer be free. Our representatives and senators have time and time again shown that they did not mean to uphold the Constitution as they vowed to do. Just as children do when they know they won't keep their promises, so have our elected officials crossed their fingers behind their backs while taking their oath of office.

      • bobvelon says:

        Many people are going to learn a few lessons the hard way…. Lock and load and be ready to rock and roll….Get a lot of ammuntion….

    • I don't think they will have a chance, there are to many of us out here that will not just turn in "OUR" guns to them, EVER. When they come for them if you want tp give them to them, but make sure you send them the bullets first. Where is Ronald Reagan and Charleton Heston when we need them?

  11. Pat Foust says:

    I thought our elected leaders pledged to uphold our Constitution? Isn't a pledge a vow, a word of your honor?

  12. They can do what they want but if we all stand together and tell them to go to hell what can they do put us all in jail after they try and take are guns I will never do what they say and I will never stop fighting them and they will never get my gun infact we need to buy more

  13. I don't care what they say or do in the UN. But, if they come for my guns, they had better bring lots of body bags. They won't get my guns while I have ammo to load into them. "Come and take it!"

  14. Donald Vastlik says:

    This will not be accepted in Mississippi. We have the Castle Doctrine law and more weapons than the populatrion. One Hundred fifty ago we fought in the battle of Shilow when 26,000 were lost in a 2 day battle.. Today we will not give up our guns.

The illegal alien muslim communist homo treasonous fraud will be easy to catch. The United States Senators have already stepped in it with the null and void NDAA, arrest every one of them. Guaranteed fast,fair speedy trials by the people. There are no Judges that go by the Constitution left, they must go too. D.C. is fully rotten to the core with communists that must be held accountable. Looking forward to the end game.

      They will all be fair game…. Comrade Feinstein is another one to watch…. They are all chomping on the bit looking forward to taking our weapons. The Dick Act of 1902/03 prohibits any repeal of our Second Amendment so how do they plan on getting around that? When it hits the fan we will not need a hunting license nor will there be bag limits….. Get em all just like they want to do to our weapons..

    Treason from on high! Where else will you find a group that makes an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, then blatantly disregard that oath to change our Constitution to meet UN requirements, striping away our rights one by one giving in to the Terrorist regimes that now lead the UN small arms treaty movement. Which makes them guilty of treason.

  21. S Rubicon says:

    I remain confused, until I realize that if our courts actually go along, we could lose our 2nd Amendment rights. How can any president &/or Senate sign & ratify any agreement at all, that infringes upon or places limitations on any of our constitutional rights? Those rights existed BEFORE we were formed as a nation, in the form of natural rights. The Constitution was written to enshrine those rights & obligate the government to 'protect & defend' those rights, not to create any infringements of to turn over their function to an international cabal. No court should permit any president to give away or sign away our rights… but in today's world even many of our judges think we must give up on our Constitution to become more like the rest of the world.

    • They don't care about our rights..they care about Their power and need us unarmed to make it easier to defeat us…hence…no help for Syria or us.Our gov't can't help the Syrian people and do the same as the gov't is doing to them…just a warm up for what they have planned for us.

  22. S Rubicon says:

    These "happy talk" kumbya clowns fail to acknowledge that their plans create a governing system that establishes itself as the arbiter of any & all rights, and allows that global governing operations to suspend or eliminate those rights if an elite governing cabal decide they think its best for the people. Guys, its OF, BY, & FOR the PEOPLE…. not the government or especially not for any world governing body rife with communists, socialists, leftists, & other elites who see themselves as better than the common man & entitled to lord over 'we the people.' The world as the left sees it, is a fantasy that does not exist & based on the evil intentions of many, will never exist. The elite seek to control & will use force to get what they want.

  23. Well i guess im about to become a criminal because i will NEVER GIVE UP MY GUNS PERIOD!!!! F. the U.N. and this anti-american Government!

  24. ReaperHD says:

    Time to end the existence of the UN here on American Soil, all we have is Anti-American Commie Terrorist in the UN trying to steal the wealth and the life style of the American People. Time to stop all monetary payments to this terrorist organization and spend the money on our people who need it.

  25. Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups, especially in Washington. The Constitution was written "not to protect big government form the people but to protect the people from big government." The lawmakers in Washington know this and are trying to destroy the hold that the Constitution has on them. The Constitution states that no treaty can go against the rules set forth in the Bill of Rights and if so they would be null and void. Moreover the Bill of Rights states that the US can only enter into a treaty a sovereign nation which the UN is not, therefore any treaty written by the UN and signed again would be null and void. So once again it will boil down to the Supreme Court and whether Obuma wins as to who will be sitting on the court when this decision is made. That is if this stupid treaty gets signed in the first place. Another question I have is, HOW MUCH IS ALL THIS REGULATION, IF PASSED, GOING TO COST US TAX PAYERS? Keep in mind the US is the biggest funder of the UN. I think that the UN isn't in the best interest of the US and we should tell them to take a hike and we don't want to be part of the circus anymore (wouldn't that put a frown on some faces).

  26. Daniel Spickard says:

    Let them come and try and take my guns! The only way they'll get my guns is barrel first with my finger on the trigger! The day that this government tries to take my guns is the day we go to Washington DC with our guns loaded and ready to fire! I believe that I'll have to go buy me one of those 50-cal. sniper rifles, and all the ammo. I can carry!

  27. Here's an idea. ANY Senator that votes in favor of this attach on the Constitution gets removed from office, IMMEDIATELY! No defense allowed, no questions asked. Immediately ousted & barred from ANY public office for the rest of his natural life. No pension, no healthcare, nothing!

    • You are right on Bob. If we all don't stand together we are all done for. I will bet you that Odumbo has already signed the executive or for martial law but just waiting to enforce it. He will wait until late on a Friday night when everyone is gone to do his dirty work so that nobody knows what he is doing and then the little coward will go some place to hide. And he is a little coward who has a big mouth and a very evil look on his face everytime I see him on television.

These ramifications are horrifing to think of …people are not going to give up their arms! We must communicate now… get a plan form large groups buy food, water, ammo. No one instigate anything stand in defense only! Last thing we want is M.a.r.t.i.a.l law. Once they sign the law it is t.r.e.a.s.o.n. !

  30. Edward Ducy says:

    WE THE PEOPLE have waited too long, it is long overdue, it is now time to join or form a Militia, and to march, armed on Congress & the WH. WE THE PEOPLE need over 1 million people to march as a Militia on DC, armed to the Capital & WH. It is time to get to the heart of the problem- Bozo "Insane" Obama. He needs to stand trial for high crimes & misdeameanors- treason & executed!

  31. This is THE reason there are over 600 empty FEMA camps right now around the country. I was told directly by current army members that are training RIGHT NOW for martial law. They are learning how to seal off and search whole towns and cars and homes. THIS is how they will attempt to take all guns. They know its going to get bloody. Forget about he bill of rights or the constitution. Martial law trumps all that. Obama has been very busy lately signing secret executive orders for it . Its getting close to hitting fans guys, PREPARE for it and FIGHT!

    • mabe so but rember that the military is made up of Americans which all have relatives that are citizens. so I would say that just like in the first world war when the last czar of russia told his military to put down the citizen revolt the military turned on him and his family.

  32. Why wait for them to come for us?
    We attack first. As soon as they pass it.
    In small groups.Guerrilla style. This country will commit suicide before we go commie.
    We can start by srorming the U.N.and every A,C,L,U, office in the country.
    No mercy. WE WILL NOT BE RULED!!

They don't care what "We The People Say". It doesn't matter anymore since the little dictator and chief is in charge. We don't even count anymore

  34. Also remember the senate is also working on a treaty with the UN called the lost sea treaty.Right now they only have 27 votes against it .Wicker will vote against it but Cochran will vote for it.Cochran will have to go.The gun treaty only has 57 senators who will vote it down.Call all your senators every day.Irritate the —- out of them.Bombard them with emails.I am really disgusted with this radical govt.They can all go to hell.Please keep abreast of any treaty the govt. wants with the UN.They are a bunch of tyrants,dictators and thugs.I am with the American people.Bless us all.

    50% of the population of Texas owns a firearm or multiple firearms. The Police, The Obummer brown coat army, the National Guard, the UN bluehats, the Black and Latino gangs, and Muzzies, all grouped together could not equal anywhere near 50% of the size of Texas proud home militia. Cabelas, Sporting goods stores (such as Academy, and Dicks) gun shops and gun shows have been non-stop busy with ammo and firearms through the roof. Let em’ try!

  36. Harold Priest says:

    Obama and all of his communists have gone nuts. If the American people continually allow Obama and his band of thieves to destroy the Constitution of the United States and its Amendments, America is lost and at a point of no return.

    We should sign NO treaty involving the UN. We are a sovereign nation governed by our own laws. The Un has no business trying to influenece any of our laws or constitution.
    I think any senator that agrees with this treaty NEEDS to be removed fdrom office as soon as possible!

  38. Mr. Romney, if you feel you must pick a black person to be your VP (in this environment), then why not
    Allen West? West is well educated, military experience, excellent speaker, true conservative, and black.
    Rice is very boring, been there, done that kind of person. Choose West! That is if you (Romney) can prove your own eligibility re/US Constitution.

  39. Patriot01 says:

    First, the ATT is ratified and passed in the Senate.
    Next, the public is angry when they start coming for our guns and when things get out of hand, Martial Law is declared.
    The Elections are suspended.
    All Patriots, Republicans, TEA partiers, Christians, Libertarians, anyone not releasing their firearms, and anyone who has ever spoken out against the US Government will be sent to FEMA camps.
    The dollar will plunge and immediate crash of stock market. This will be done by Obama’s brown coats, the UN, and our boys in blue. Think not? Look at how Christians have been treated and rights violated in Dearborn by the Police. We have had an increasing Police state, the use of drones, etc. NDAA and Patriot Act.
    Think how the UN’s Agenda 21 has been creeping into our very fabric of society for reasons the UN knows.
    Next is a New World Order complete with Microchipping. Look up how microchipping was slipped into the HealthCare bill. This is all Revelations of the Holy Bible folks.

    No treaty can supersede the US Constitution. The United States of America is a sovereign nation. This treaty will be hell for them to try and enforce on American soil. FYI- take a look at the number of hunting permits issued by every state during the hunting season, that being said "We The People" are the largest standing army in the world. There are over 80 million firearms owners in the US, that "we" know of. Think about this for a minute. Guns are kind of like a set of golf clubs, each one and each caliber is made for some specific reason and I don't know of any gun owner that owns just one. Go ahead Obozo, bring it on, just try and take them from us, your "brown shirts" don't stand a chance and if you doubt that take a look at WWII, the Jap's would not attack Main Land America because they thought that every American was armed to the teeth and that they would not have stood a chance and the same goes for hitler, if they were not afraid I do believe we would be speaking either Japanese or German right now.

  42. If the senate dose some thing like this thay are going to have to reinforce the secret service with the national gard. to protect all of those idiots.

  43. WITHOUT THE SECOND AMENDMENT, NONE OF THE OTHER ONES WILL MATTER.

  44. Hillary Clinton is the one who pushed this treaty and wants it passed along with Hussain! As the senate is made up of liberal loons (ie the deathcare bill) they will radify this and shove it down out throats also! There had better be alot of faxes going to these democrats!

  45. The UN has a revolver with it's barrel tied in a knot in front of it. I knew as soon as they erected this statue that they were out for our gun's and souls. To HELL with the UN! I think that is the first thing to go. They pulled Saddam's statue down immediately!

If we stand together, armed if necessary we stand STRONG!

  48. Ric Shaw says:

    The tyrant has taken away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our Governance!

    The tyrant has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns and destroyed the lives of our people.

    The tyrant has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of international frontiers the merciless Muslime, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages sexes and conditions.

    The tryant has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    The tyrant has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained, and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them..

    The tryant has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices and the amount and payment of their salaries.

    The tyrant has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of preteneded Legislation:

    The tyrant has quartered large bodies of armed troops among us:

    For protecting them by a mock Trial, from Punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:

    For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offences:

    For abolishing the free system of English Laws in a neighbouring Provinces, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absoulute rule into these Colonies:

    In every stage of these Oppressions we have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeatred Petitions have been answered ONLY BY REPEATED INJURY. A prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is UNFIT to be the ruler of a FREE PEOPLE.

  49. Dan Morgan says:

    The senate can "gut" anything they want to on paper.
    These rights were NOT GIVEN to us by the Constitution. They were given to us BY OUR CREATOR.
    Let them play with their paper all they want. We still have the hardware.
    Paper, rock, scissors? Hardware wins every time.
    I no longer recognize Washington, DC or these a**holes as my government anyway. I am fed up with their stupidity. Government can only govern with consent. I NO LONGER give my consent.
    END OF STORY

  50. Allen Jenken says:

    If you Liberals do not believe Obama is a Marxist after the last couple days of his profound wisdom then you are Marxist yourselves.
    Obama should be Impeached due to disregarding the Constitution of the USA. Something all Liberals should also be subject to in my opinion.

    What a "COWARD" this man is.
