Houston, Tx –-(Ammoland.com)- A UN Conference to limit gun ownership has been scheduled for July 2, 2012. The long-touted boogy-man for gun owners, the UN Arms Trade Agreement is moving closer.
The Obama Administration voted as early as October of 2009 to abandon the position taken by the Bush Administration and SUPPORT a United Nations-sponsored treaty to regulate the $55 billion a year trade in conventional weapons.
This was also the position of the Clinton Administration. The Bush position held such decisions were within the jurisdiction of a sovereign nation.
Not only has the Obama Administration agreed to enter into the negotiations but are reported as agreeing to the “heavy-lifting” which means, among other things, pressuring its allies.
After the Fast and Furious Debacle?
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton steps to the forefront and if you were pleased with how Eric Holder handled the Fast and Furious Debacle, Gun-owners, be prepared!
The July conference will include discussions on small arms sales and possibly regulating the sale of ammunition. Every gun owner’s worst nightmare.
NRA-ILA, NSSF, and associations of competitive shooters from around the world have worked tirelessly to successfully oppose this treaty for over 20 years.
Bush opposed it, Obama embraces it. We have a history with the Clintons and with Eric Holder.
If you’re not registered to vote, get registered. Believe that your U.S. Senators and Congress are well aware of how a negotiation such as this could be viewed this Fall by voters.
We don’t take kindly to threats.Keep the Faith Alice Tripp
