Gun Owners of America

Washington, DC --(Ammoland.com)- Kansas Senator Jerry Moran introduced legislation to prohibit the Obama administration from negotiating away our gun rights as part of the UN Arms Trade Treaty (ATT).

The ATT is a backdoor attempt to impose massive restrictions on U.S. gun rights. While negotiations on the treaty are being held behind closed doors, it is certain to include language that will:

  • Require the registration and licensure of American firearms;
  • Ban large categories of firearms;
  • Require the mandatory destruction of surplus ammo and confiscated firearms;
  • Define manufacturing so broadly that any gun owner who adds an accessory such as a scope or changes a stock on a firearm would be required to obtain a manufacturing license;
  • Require “microstamping” of ammunition.

The treaty could also be self-executing, which would mean that it would achieve its anti-gun objectives whether or not implementing legislation was passed by Congress.

Some people think the U.S. would never sign off on such a treaty. Well, think again.

In 2009, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced the U.S. agreed to negotiate on the treaty.

That’s a shift from the Bush administration, which declared the ATT dead on arrival. President Bush wouldn’t have delivered the treaty to the Senate for ratification, but Obama can’t wait to use this vehicle as a way to show his anti-gun base that he is doing something on the gun control front.

GOA is continually briefing Senators on the dangers of this treaty. We even have a number of Senators who have committed in writing to oppose the treaty.

But one thing we fear is that the ATT is so massive (it would regulate everything from battleships to bullets) that many Senators may feel that the small arms portion is insignificant compared to the entire document.

A number of Senators who purport to be pro-gun could possibly go along with the treaty. It is also likely that no Democrat Senators – even those from so-called red states – will vote against the president in the months leading up to the election.

All this makes the Moran bill vitally important. S. 2205 will not allow the Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration to even attempt to negotiate away our gun rights.

The Moran bill is also a good test of which Senators are willing to stand against the president and oppose the ATT.

Please take a minute to urge your own Senators to cosponsor S. 2205, the Second Amendment Sovereignty Act of 2012.

And then please consider contributing to help GOA continue to battle this treaty and other attacks on the right to keep and bear arms.

It is important to act right away. Negotiations on the ATT are happening NOW! The committee at the UN in charge of the treaty expects to have a final draft ready by this summer. We need to use every means available to stop it in its tracks.

      I don’t know why anybody would follow that law? If he did that then that would be the last thing obama and the ugly useless wench would ever do again. Too many people and millions who have guns in their homes would really cause problems and it would be a major uproar like they have never seen. All I know if we all stand united how can we let 1-2 people tell us what to do? I don’t get that. YOu would think that people just wouldn’t follow it and cops or law would enforce it. I don’t know this is nuts and our founding fathers were so smart when they put this together. This is Obamas last chance and action just like the healthcare bill to change things to a socialist country. Wont happen and we need to all keep active in this together. they are the problem, not us

      It is now time for the JURY NULLIFICATION movement I proposed in a previous comment on the Anti Airsoft legislation currently going through the California Legislature to go NATIONAL.

      Here is an example of the letter or e.nail i feel we should be sending to the following people, President Barrack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, All of the United States Senators:

      1. Whereas, we gun owners of The United States of America have concluded that you are now engaged in trying to get around the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution by internationalizing the “gun control” issue through the UN Arms Trade Treaty (ATT).

      2. Whereas we feel that the Operation Fast and Furrious fiasco was an attempt to create conditions justifying such innternationalization of the “gun control” issue through the small arms provisions of the
      UN Arms Trade Treaty (ATT).

      2. Whereas, our studies of the history of “gun control” in general has shown that it was a neccessary prerequisite to the Holocausts and Genocides of the following nations and regimes:

      World War I Turkey with the disarmed victims being the Armenian population.

      Stalin Era Soviet Union with Anti Communists and the population of the Ukraine being the disarmed victims.

      Nazi Germany with Jews, Roma, Homosexuals, the Disabled and Jehovah’s Witnesses being the disarmed victims.

      Nationalist China with non Communist leftists and disidents being the disarmed victims.

      Communist China with Anti Communists, Intellectuals and dissidents being the disarmed victims.

      Pol Pot’s Cambodia with anyone with more than a sixth grade education being the disarmed victims.

      Be it resolved that if you continue this attack on our second amendment through applying the UN Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). to ANY currently legal guns including such currently unregulated guns as pre 1898 antique guns, pellet guns, metal BB guns, Airsoft, BB guns as defined under Federal regulations (only the tip orange or some other neon color), paintball guns or collector replicas legal under federal regulations we will no longer cooperate with the enforcement of ANY “gun control” laws of the United States or any state county or incorporated city through votes for conviction on them when we are called for Jury duty. That is the last deal we have for you. You can keep what you have now in the “gun control” legislative field and stop at that point or LOSE IT ALL. This is our last deal with you as you have proven that you are not the guardians of the rights given us by our God and our Federal Constitution and we are no longer in a compromising mood.

    4. Our constitution states we are a soveriegn govenment in which any foreign treaty cannot cannot be enforced within the boundaries of the US. This a way of abolishing our constitution and is high treason.

    5. [...] At the top of Obama’s agenda has been the disarming of America. We have seen this with “Operation Gun Runner” and “Fast and Furious”… His remarks to Sarah Brady about doing an “end run” around Congress with respects to gun control and Secretary Clinton’s support of the United Nations “Small Arms Treaty”… [...]

    6. we need to drop out of the useless united nations. i’m sure this country does most of its funding. what is next? probly if there is a problem here bring in un troops or if this country has a monetary failure let the nwo run the world with un troops being police enforcement. common congress, introduce a bill to get us out of this useless and dangerous organization.

      What makes you think that a president can sign away our Constitutional rights? That’s insane and paranoia inducing crap. Fear is NOT our friend.

      Check it our for yourselves…..a sitting president can’t sign a treaty that is diametrically against one of our Constitutional rights. fact.
