The US Arms Trade Treaty
« on: July 20, 2012, 05:08:40 PM »
On July 27th, the nations of the world are scheduled to meet in New York to sign a global Arms Trade Treaty. Disguised as a way to prevent the proliferation of small arms throughout the world, it is, in fact, a backdoor way to legislate gun control in the United States and effectively repeal our Second Amendment.

This is a link to a site where you can write a petition to your senators, asking them to not vote yes. Over 300,000 letters and emails have been sent in. I personally have already signed it. Who else is going to help me defend my Constitutional rights, including the right to bear arms?

That worked out well for Gage didn't it! :) And it's worked so well in every country it's been tried. It'll never happen by treaty....O.L.

Some diplomats and treaty supporters blamed the United States for triggering the unraveling of the month-long negotiating conference.
In a letter to President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the senators expressed serious concerns with the draft treaty that has circulated at the United Nations,
saying that it signals an expansion of gun control that would be unacceptable.
(TG note: Congress was bombarded with calls, letters, e-mails and faxes. We promote "Civic responsibility" at our Appleseeds, right?!)   

"The Constitution's Second Amendment offers broad protection for weapons ownership by civilians.
The Supreme Court also has ruled separately that "treaty obligations may not infringe on individual constitutional protections and rights within U.S. borders."


Despite the failure to reach agreement, Ambassador Roberto Garcia Moritan predicted that "we certainly are going to have a treaty in 2012."

(TG note: ain't gonna happen Moritan!)

Yep, they'll just keep trying. Stay vigilant and raise cane even over the "little" stuff. If we push back on the little things they won't dare attempt the big stuff....O.L.
