Congressmen Urge the UN to Trample the US Constitution

United Nation Targets USA
Congressmen Urge The UN To Trample The US Constitution

FAIRFAX, Va. –-(Ammoland.com)- This week begins the most important 26-day period for our Second Amendment freedoms in recent history.

That’s because today, representatives from many of the world’s socialist, tyrannical and dictatorial regimes will gather at United Nations headquarters in New York for a month-long meeting, in which they’ll put the finishing touches on an international Arms Trade Treaty that could seriously restrict your freedom to own, purchase and carry a firearm.

Specifically, the U.N. wants to implement international gun registration requirements, bans on commonly owned firearms, tracking and registration of ammunition purchases, and create a new U.N. gun control bureaucracy.

You might think that something so obviously menacing to one of our enumerated fundamental rights would receive a strong rebuke from our top government leaders.

But you’d be wrong. This is President Barack Obama’s vision for America, and we’re expected to just go along with it.

In fact, a group of anti-gun members of the U.S. House of Representatives, led by U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.), went so far as to circulate a letter last week to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, in which they “strongly urge the United States to take a leadership role in pushing for a strong, verifiable Arms Trade Treaty.”

These House members insist that the treaty include “controls on a comprehensive list of weaponry, including small arms and light weapons,” as well as controls on ammunition. For good measure, they wrap their unconstitutional demands in the mantle of advancing “human rights” and preventing international violence.

Since when did it become fashionable for sitting members of Congress to lobby international thugs, tyrants and dictators against our own U.S. Constitution?

Rep. Grijalva should consider the plight of good people in countries like the Sudan, where it’s virtually impossible for an average citizen to legally own a firearm for self-defense.

He, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton should open their eyes to the unspeakable human rights atrocities that exist in their gun-ban utopia. They ought to see how far their gun-confiscation agenda resonates with hundreds of thousands of defenseless Sudanese men, women, and children who live in constant fear of being beaten, raped, sold into slavery, or murdered.

It’s easy for Congressmen Raul Grijalva, James McGovern, Bobby Rush, Dennis Kucinich, and every other signer of this woefully ignorant letter to sit on high — surrounded by the secure walls of freedom built by our strong Second Amendment rights — and dictate to oppressed citizens in other parts of the world that their lives would be better if they only had less freedom than we do in the United States.

Thankfully, these clueless representatives don’t speak for the majority of us. The NRA has been warning Americans about this ticking time bomb at the U.N. for over 15 years. Now it’s zero hour. Wayne LaPierre and I will be at U.N. headquarters in New York this week, fighting tooth and nail to protect the same constitution that Raul Grijalva and his pals swore an oath to uphold and defend.

And I can promise you, we won’t stop fighting until our Second Amendment freedoms are safe from this international disgrace.

Some basis for concern I 1929 The Soviet Union established Gun control. from 1929 to 1953 20 million dissidents were rounded up and exterminated.China also with gun control in 1935 & from 1948 to 1952 another 20 million political dissidents unable to defend themselves, guess what??.Uganda with gun control in 1970 and from 71'to'79 300.000 Christians rounded up,exterminated. Just some of the many ie 56 million in the 20th Century unable to defend themselves.Germany of course with gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945 13 million jews and others rounded up and also exterminated. I rest my case.

I agree that if they want to slamdunk this gun control BS, there will definitely be resistance. Militia groups will grow rapidly – like http://www.indianamilitia.org and http://www.michiganmilitia.com In fact, I can testify to the fact that militias have been organizing and growing for years now, and American gun owners have bought billions and billions of rounds of ammunition lately! Normally manufacturers would sell a million guns annually, but they sold at least 4 million guns in just the first quarter of this year, and they are simply unable to maintain the pace! Do you suppose that all these guns are… Read more »

Let's not forget our Fore Fathers when they came to America from England. If they did not have their guns to protect their freedom we all would be under English Rule. They are the ones that made this a free country and we want it that way.

There is no way I will ever give up my right to own and have a gun.

Ken Crawford

SURELY, THE EVENTS OF THE LAST WEEK, IF NOT THE LAST 50 YEARS, WOULD CONVINCE ANYONE BUT A TRAITOR, THAT WE CANNOT DEPEND ON OUR CONGRESS, PRESIDENT, OR SUPREME COURT, TO SUPPORT, DEFEND AND ENFORCE THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION ! I read this week that of the 535 members of congress, only 130 expressed any concern about this treaty at all ! The rest were either for it, or had no interest in it at all. The Oath of Office means nothing to them anymore, and this clown from Arizona, is in business for himself, no doubt he has a… Read more »

WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO START TALKING BLUNTLY ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THE MAJORITY OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT?

THEIR GOAL IS TO "DESTROY AMERICA" AND MAKE IT A SOCIALIST, TOTALY CONTROLED COUNTRY. MOST OF US SEE IT PLEASE DISCUSS IT OPENLY WITH US.

WHEN THERE AMERICAN SENATORS OPENLY DISCUSSING THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA BE PUT UNDER THE CONTROL OF THE united nations EVEN THE DUMBEST OF US SHOULD SMELL A RAT.

We will loose everything we have fought for..It is unbelieveable that the people voted for this Marxist , godless and fatherless man of illigimate birth with no papers..WAP, eh?

Steve Holmes

Does the word Traitor come to mind!?!

B. Johnson

Regarding this threating situation from the UN, please consider the following. Thomas Jefferson had noted the following constitutional limitation on the powers of the Senate and the Oval Office to negotiate treaties. Jefferson had essentially indicated that the Senate and Oval Office cannot use its treaty powers to force US citizens to comply with foreign laws base on powers that the states have not expressly delegated to Congress via the Constitution. "In giving to the President and Senate a power to make treaties, the Constitution meant only to authorize them to carry into effect, by way of treaty, any powers… Read more »

Ed, and all… WE won't be going to wat with ourselves, just a very few Federal law enforcement,local LE, and liberal politicians. We out number them 100 to 1 or more. They know it.The realistic scenario, they start it , we finish it, they are gone from our country and our government. How about a 30 million gun owner march on Washington. That ought to do it.

Don Holmes

I just read this,and want to pass it on."The Constitution is law,not vague aspirations,and we are obligated to protect,defend,and apply. If the second ammendment were truly an outdated relic , the Constitution provides a method for repeal.

The Constitution does not furnish the federal courts with an eraser."

Don Holmes

Why ? for the life of me does Rep.Raul Grijalva hug the President after hundreds of "his people" were murdered by this administrations "fast and furious" illegal gun running scheme ? If they were ever able to confiscate all of our "legal"guns,Rep.Raul Grijalva's (and our)life would not be worth a plug nickel. in my opinion, people like Pres. Obama is not interested in making friends, But subjects.

gmnance

If Obama wants a civil war so he can declare marshal law, he is doing a damned good job of it. He can't trust the military to follow his orders so he has created an army of street thugs and illegals to do his bidding. Mr. O bama, be careful of what you ask for, you might get it.

ed Thompson

This is one time Congress better listen to the people, or be responsable for starting the next civil war. We will not sit back and let this happen, we will fight. We will not give up our guns.Our fighting men for the most part will not go along with this either, I hate to see this country at war with itself, but that is what will happen if you let this happen!

bonnie somer

I know that is this is allowed then everything we as a nation for 236 yrs have worked to keep will be lost, the constitution, our sovereignty, our freedom, rights. liberties and all America is. We must not let this happen or we have but ourselves to blame. Be careful when November comes the choice is ours Freedom or sheep forever to the fed govt and obama communism. Freedom sounds dam good to me.

David Douthit

It sucks, but we have our selves to blame. So long as the people keep electing these individuals in to office and refuse to hold them to their oaths to support and defend the Constitution (oath of office) nothing will change. These people should be immediately recalled the second they go against the Constitution. People are going to crap their pants when they wake up one morning and discover what it is they truly gave up. You will never miss something until the day comes and you wake up to discover that it is no longer there. You treat your… Read more »
