GunOwners of America – Senator Moran Seeks to Repudiate UN Small Arms Treaty

Although John Kerry signed the UN Small Arms Treaty, other senators who better understand our history, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Second Amendment, are seeking to repudiate the treaty. Senator Moran is now circulating a letter for that purpose. Senator Moran cites the extensive work that Gun Owners of America has done to reveal what the UN Small Arms Treaty is about. It is wrong, and it does undermine our sovereignty.

“[GOA’s Larry] Pratt also contends that the U.N. has a terrible track record in protecting human life. He said the horrors in Rwanda are a perfect example of why the U.N. has no business deciding who should and should not have access to guns.” — WorldNetDaily, June 2013

When you’re dealing with an adversary who hates the 2nd Amendment as much as Barack Obama, you have to fight attacks coming from several different directions.

We know we’ve thrown a lot at you lately. But there’s one other issue we’d like to bring to your attention.

As you know, the Obama administration recently signed the virulently anti-gun UN Arms Trade Treaty (ATT).

Although purporting to regulate international trade in arms, the treaty empowers anti-gun administrations (such as Barack Obama’s) to institute internal gun control, including gun bans, gun registration, and more. In fact, the drafters of the treaty made no secret of their goal of imposing measures such as microstamping on countries like the United States.

GOA’s legislative counsel has done a word-by-word analysis of the treaty, which can be seen here. If left unchecked, the treaty language will give rise a wide ranging series of gun control restrictions, as mentioned above. . . .

UN Arms Trade Treaty – John Kerry Signed It

UN Arms Trade Treaty – John Kerry Signed It

What does this mean for the future of gun rights in the United States? What does this mean for the Second Amendment? What does it mean for our sovereignty as a nation when we sign a document giving specific gun control powers to an international body?

WASHINGTON — The latest front in the Senate battle over gun control opened Wednesday, as Secretary of State John Kerry signed the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty in New York.

The treaty establishes standards for the global trade in conventional weapons, with the goal of preventing such weapons from being sold to those who would use them to commit genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.

In the United States, however, the ATT has been the target of fierce opposition from the gun rights lobby, led by the National Rifle Association, which claims the treaty violates the Second Amendment rights of gun owners.

Supporters, on the other hand, argue that the treaty is necessary to help protect millions around the globe in danger of human rights abuses. “This treaty says that nations must not export arms and ammunition where there is an ‘overriding risk’ that they will be used to commit serious human rights violations,” said Amnesty International USA’s Frank Jannuzi in a statement on Tuesday. “It will help keep arms out of the hands of the wrong people: those responsible for upwards of 1,500 deaths worldwide every day.” . . .

The IANSA group lists its current advisory board members. Probably a good idea to know who the advisory board members are, and then, as much as possible, to follow their statements and actions as they work together on the UN Arms Treaty, a treaty that will significantly impact our Second Amendment rights.

Why should we be concerned about this proposed treaty? Isn’t it just an effort to control arms to reduce violence and terrorism around the world? Not according to Wayne LaPierre.
