What “Unsigning” the Arms Trade Treaty Means for American Gun Owners ~ VIDEO

Opinion

Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- Last Friday, President Trump took the historic step of ordering the “unsigning” of the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty during his address to the NRA-ILA’s Leadership Forum. President Trump’s action effectively withdraws the United States from the most comprehensive effort towards international gun control.

Much of the intervening coverage on the ATT has focused on how the treaty did or did not constrain U.S. arms sales abroad, but many average law-abiding gun owners may be questioning how the treaty could or couldn’t have affected them.

NRA’s complaints regarding the treaty have always been based on its potential effect on law-abiding American gun owners. Those complaints have focused on the treaty’s requirements for end use verification, its sometimes-unintelligible vagueness, its ability to be amended without the consensus of all parties, and its proponents repeated refusals to clarify that it has no effect on the possession of small arms by civilians in the United States.

The treaty urges record keeping of end users, directing importing countries to provide information to an exporting country regarding arms transfers, including “end use or end user documentation” for a “minimum of ten years.” Each country is to “take measures, pursuant to its national laws, to regulate brokering taking place under its jurisdiction for conventional arms.” Data kept on the end users of imported firearms is a de-facto registry of law-abiding firearms owners, which is a violation of federal law. Even worse, the ATT could be construed to require such a registry to be made available to foreign governments.

The vagueness of the treaty and its ease of being “amended” is best exemplified by actions that took place at a conference on the treaty last year. At that conference, proponents of the treaty “welcome[ed]” several living documents into the ATT. While seemingly innocuous on its face, this change incorporated the International Small Arms Control Standards (ISACS) into the ATT.

Falsely described as established “international standards” or “international norms” that “provide clear, practical and comprehensive guidance to practitioners and policymakers on fundamental aspects of small arms and light weapons control”, the ISACS are in reality a series of six standards developed by the UN for states to use in implementing their global disarmament agenda. Series 3 – Legislative and Regulatory – and its Module 3.30, “National Regulation of Civilian Access to Small Arms and Light Weapons,” is the most alarming of all the ISACS.

Purporting to set the standards for “National Regulation of Civilian Access to Small Arms and Light Weapons,” Module 3.30 creates a means to almost entirely limit civilian access to small arms under the guise of International Humanitarian Law, International Human Rights Law, and Gender Based Violence. Highlights include, but are not limited to; a ban on civilian possession of “military” style arms – no automatic weapons or magazines with over a 10 round capacity, ballistic recordings, different risk classifications on types of firearms (i.e. calibers over .45 are an intolerable risk to public safety and semi-auto handguns and rifles are high risk), licensing and registration of all firearms, training and storage restrictions, waiting periods, 20-year record retention requirements of sellers, age limits and requiring a demonstrated need to possess a firearm, with self-defense not being one of them.

While incorporation by reference of the ISACS into the ATT was alarming, it was also not entirely unpredictable. As with every anti-firearm UN initiative, concern must never lie entirely with what is in it now, but with what it will become and how it will be used by a future U.S. administration, especially one seeking international justification for a gun control agenda.

Perhaps the easiest way to understand the future danger the ATT posed to U.S. gun owners is the complete refusal by proponents of the treaty to limit its application to civilian arms.

NRA and other opponents of the treaty repeatedly asked for a carve-out in the treaty, yet those requests were flatly denied. If the treaty’s proponents had no intention of limiting American gun ownership, why resist such a limitation to the text of the treaty?

Instead, the treaty included language in its preamble that treaty parties be “mindful of the legitimate trade and lawful ownership, and use of certain conventional arms for recreational, cultural, historical, and sporting activities, where such trade, ownership and use are permitted or protected by law.” A careful read will show that the use of arms for individual and collective defense is notably missing from this statement, and the statement creates no limitation and is really only an aspirational provision.

Please join us in thanking President Trump for protecting our firearms freedoms by removing any obligation of the United States to be bound by the “object and purpose” of the Arms Trade Treaty.

“What unsigning the arms trade treaty means for American gun owners” Absolutely NOTHING. This was purely a symbolic gesture by RINO Trump…a publicity stunt put on by RINO Trump and the National RINO Association (oldest gun control organization in America). This is not how treaties work according to the US Constitution. A president signed a treaty and sent to to the US Senate for ratification. The US Senate STILL has that treaty and can ratify it any time they want to, with or without a subsequent president’s approval. The ONLY way for this treaty to be canceled is for the… Read more »

Barack Obama supported things like this for a reason. He had to get the guns out of the citizens hands in order to install his fundamental transformation and he gave that goal his utmost attention but failed. He further promised a federal police force just as well funded, trained and equipped as our military. He failed to get the guns and therefore failed in his fundamental transformation. Perhaps you noticed he failed to explain either of those promises. I think on purpose. No democrat asked (and I also did not hear a public question from republicans either) as to what… Read more »

What all too many forget is “Regardless of the constitution”, States, Cities, and the federal government often pass and enforce laws that are contrary to the constitution.

When it comes to the individual, the onus is on the individual, to raise the substantial money (Possibly millions) required to take the fight through the court system. A system that is becoming politicized. Look at the far left leaning 9th district court as an example.

The reason this was not a treaty is that the agenda of the former president Obama knew that a treaty had to be approved by a vote of the U.S. Senate, and there was no way in hell that the Senate would pass such a lopsided treated. It gave Iran the chance to guarantee to get a nuclear weapon within 10 years. America,like most of the world’s leading nation’s,cannot afford to have an armed with nuclear weapons Iran nation sitting in the middle east. Because once they get one they will certainly use it.

Correct it is not 1968. It is also not 1986 when Ronald Reagan issued his infamous executive order banning U.S. citizens from purchasing any more newly manufactured fully automatic weapons. As a former U.S. Army MAJ. I can attest that personal weapons are generally far more effective in semi auto as opposed to full auto due to the shooters ability to recover more quickly and get back on target faster with well aimed shots vs full auto. Generally, the SAW, M-60 and J.M.Brownings 50 cal. are light years more effective on full auto. There are a plethora of reasons for… Read more »

-Creation of national gun control database of second class citizens; requirement to get permission from government to buy/keep arms
-permission slip requirements to bear/carry arms
-ammo bans
-red flag laws/gun confiscations
-parts bans.
-de facto registration
-gun free zones

The missing portion, when added back in, supplies the proper meaning g of Article VI, clause 2, to wit, and specifically: “This Constitution and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made,or which shall be made under the Authority of the United States shall be the supreme Law of the land; and the Judges in every state shall rebound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.” With the… Read more »

This agreement was only set in place and approved by Obama so the US could end up in a world order government and this was one way to disarm our country.

My autistic teen is getting ready to start a regimen to include medical marijuana. He is highly aggressive and has been medicated by standard pharmaceuticals since the age of 4. This is a hail-Mary-pass, and I’m praying it will have a drastic effect on him. However, since he is a minor, I had to register as his “caregiver”. This prohibits me under federal law from buying, selling, transferring, or owning a firearm. Personally, I think this is absolutely BS.

It is not “highl addictive” (not addicitve at all, in fact, no more than Diet Dr. Pepper) and the very fact it is being PRESCRIBED for her son is proof it DOES have medical use.

I agree with your point Tionico, but as I understand her post, since her son is a minor, she has to be registered as his caregiver. She will likely, at least legally, be administering it to her son. In the upsidedown world of law and in particular, Federal Law, this probably makes her for “legal” purposes, “a user”.

@Forever….I would suggest that you read the heavily documented HELLSTORM, and discover what the timeline was. Even though some occurrences, such as the totally unnecessary firebombing of Dresden did take place before the end of the war, most of the atrocities occurred AFTER, blessed and ordered by “The Terrible Swedish Jew”. He acted out of hate and revenge, against innocent civilians who had absolutely nothing to do with the war.

The ATT was never ratified by two-thirds of the U.S. Senate and is therefore not a treaty.

Treaties made outside the parameters of the U.S. Constitution are null and void. Additionally, the NRA is wrong that the Second Amendment guarantees the right to keep and bear arms.
