UN Gun Ban Treaty - Biden And Democrats On Board
As our friend Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights, noted in a recent email to supporters, from the beginning, gun grabbers have claimed the purpose of the UN's "Small Arms Treaty" is keeping arms out of the hands of terrorists, insurgents, rogue states, and gang members.
But at the very same time the Biden Administration was pledging their support for the UN's "Small Arms Treaty," they were leaving $83 BILLION in U.S. military weaponry to the Taliban!
Reading through the details of the UN "Small Arms Treaty," it's hard to see how this treaty could survive Second Amendment scrutiny, if ratified.
For starters, noted Mr. Brown, the Treaty text demands the U.S. identity "end users" (gun buyers), document "the quantity, value, and model/type" of firearms and ammunition, and develop "national control standards" to regulate transfers.
In other words, by design it's an International Gun Registry that'll include detailed information on American gun owners just like you -- the first step toward outright CONFISCATION.
Worse, all that information would be made accessible by despots and foreign governments including the Treaty's largest signer -- Communist China.
They don't care about keeping guns out of the hands of terrorists.
They care about keeping guns out of the hands of law-abiding Americans!
And, as our friends at Gun Owners of America told supporters in a recent email, this isn’t an imaginary issue: the Biden-Harris Administration *is* working behind the scenes to ratify the U.N. global gun registration treaty.
Since this treaty has the force of law, Biden could claim the power to impose semi-auto and handgun bans—along with gun owner registration—without ANY additional congressional action.
Where is this headed?
We note for the record that one of the categories of persons who the treaty would disarm is “insurgents,” a rarely heard category in American politics before January 6, 2021.
But now anyone who opposes the Biden regime or “woke” Leftist governors seems to get categorized as an “insurgent” or “insurrectionist.”
And it isn’t just the Left-leaning news media that wants to lump patriotic Americans who are exercising their 1st Amendment rights in with the Taliban and Peru’s Communist Shining Path guerillas.
As the NRA-ILA reported, last August New York’s Democrat governor Kathy Hochul gave a speech about how the Empire State is combatting what she repeatedly referred to as “gun violence.” Among other things, her remarks suggested that the state will begin using political and ideological litmus tests to determine who is a “suitable person” to own or carry a firearm.
There are two main methods gun control advocates use to advance their agenda, observed the ILA team, which ultimately would ban firearm ownership for anyone but those who protect the gun control advocates themselves or who prop up their regimes as police, soldiers, security guards, etc.
The first is to ban what they claim are unusually dangerous weapons.
The second is to ban the keeping and bearing of arms by those who they claim are unusually dangerous persons.
To Kathy Hochul and Joe Biden, that means conservatives and liberty lovers of any stripe.
While describing recent changes to New York’s already draconian firearms laws, Hochul said:
We also talked about, I mentioned, social media a number of times. I’ve called upon and working closely [sic] with our attorney general to identify what’s going on in social media. Those questions are now part of our background check, such as like in the old days you’d talk to someone’s neighbor. Now you can talk to their neighbors online and find out whether or not this person has been spouting, uh, you know, philosophies that indicate they have been radicalized, and that’s how we protect our citizens as well.
Judging by the statements of Hochul’s fellow far-left politicians, the NRA cautioned it is likely to be common philosophies and ideas that don’t mirror their own that are identified as “radical.”
And as if on cue, Joe Biden himself provided a perfect example with his widely-criticized speech in which he broadly painted supporters of his chief political rival – former President Donald Trump – as extremists and threats to democracy.
Treaties are binding agreements between nations and become part of international law. However, the good news is that Article II, section 2 of the United States Constitution provides that the president "shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two-thirds of the Senators present concur.”
The Capitol Switchboard is (202) 224-3121 we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators to tell them you demand they vote NO on the UN "Small Arms Treaty" or any treaty that purports to contravene the Constitution’s 2nd Amendment. Tell them you also demand they oppose any measure that purports to sidestep the two-thirds majority threshold, like Senators Mitch McConnell and Robert Corker did in their infamous arrangement to approve Obama’s nuclear weapons deal with Iran.
