President Lucifer signs UN gun control treaty

BKeyserv lord of the fliesWhile you, I, and 314 million other Americans were busy going about our lives, President Lucifer’s Lurch, aka John “snake-tongue” Kerry, quietly signed the gun control United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.

The UN News Service reports (via GlobalSecurity.org) that yesterday, Sept. 25 2013, 19 countries, including the United States, signed onto a new treaty regulating international trade in conventional arms, bringing the total number of signatories to more than half of all UN member states.

The new Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) – which will enter into force once it receives 50 ratifications – includes a prohibition on the transfer of arms which would be used in the commission of genocide, crimes against humanity and certain war crimes — all conventional arms within the categories of battle tanks, armored combat vehicles, large-caliber artillery systems, combat aircraft, attack helicopters, warships, missiles and missile launchers and small arms and light weapons.

Note: Obama’s signing of the ATT is the height of hypocrisy because his own regime, specifically the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), had engaged in “the transfer of small arms and light weapons” across the US-Mexican border. I am, of course, referring to Obama’s Operation Fast and Furious gunrunning fiasco that took the life of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.

The UN Arms Trade Treaty’s prohibition on the transfer of “small arms and light weapons” prompted the National Rifle Association (NRA) and the Gun Owners of America to warn that the treaty is an attempt to circumvent the Second Amendment and similar guarantees in state constitutions in order to impose domestic gun regulations. In other words, just like the UN Small Arms Treaty, the Arms Trade Treaty is really a gun-control agreement.

The ATT would provide the United States Executive, i.e., the President, sweeping powers to regulate which guns can and cannot enter or exit our country. Further, this treaty is likely a stepping-stone to a mandatory international gun-registry. In July 2012, the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action sounded this warning:

“Anti-gun treaty proponents continue to mislead the public, claiming the treaty would have no impact on American gun owners. That’s a bald-faced lie. For example, the most recent draft treaty includes export/import controls that would require officials in an importing country to collect information on the ‘end user’ of a firearm, keep the information for 20 years, and provide the information to the country from which the gun was exported. In other words, if you bought a Beretta shotgun, you would be an ‘end user’ and the U.S. government would have to keep a record of you and notify the Italian government about your purchase. That is gun registration. If the U.S. refuses to implement this data collection on law-abiding American gun owners, other nations might be required to ban the export of firearms to the U.S.”

The NRA’s warning is well-placed. Here’s what Article 5 (“General Implementation”) of the UN Arms Trade Treaty says:

2. Each State Party shall establish and maintain a national control system, including a national control list, in order to implement the provisions of this Treaty.

3. Each State Party is encouraged to apply the provisions of this Treaty to the broadest range of conventional arms. […]

4. Each State Party, pursuant to its national laws, shall provide its national control list to the Secretariat, which shall make it available to other States Parties. States Parties are encouraged to make their control lists publicly available.

5. Each State Party shall take measures necessary to implement the provisions of this Treaty and shall designate competent national authorities in order to have an effective and transparent national control system regulating the transfer of conventional arms covered under Article 2 (1) and of items covered in Article 3 and Article 4.

6. Each State Party shall designate one or more national points of contact to exchange information on matters related to the implementation of this Treaty. A State Party shall notify the Secretariat, established under Article 18, of its national point(s) of contact and keep the information updated.

Read Article 5 (4) again. It’s not just our federal government that would get a copy of the “national [gun] control list.” International bureaucrats at the United Nations and foreign governments would have access to the list as well!

A gun registration system (though it’s not called such) is contained in the treaty’s Article 12 (“Record Keeping”):

1. Each State Party shall maintain national records, pursuant to its national laws and regulations, of its issuance of export authorizations or its actual exports of the conventional arms covered under Article 2 (1).

2. Each State Party is encouraged to maintain records of conventional arms covered under Article 2 (1) that are transferred to its territory as the final destination or that are authorized to transit or trans-ship territory under its jurisdiction.

3. Each State Party is encouraged to include in those records: the quantity, value, model/type, authorized international transfers of conventional arms covered under Article 2 (1), conventional arms actually transferred, details of exporting State(s), importing State(s), transit and trans-shipment State(s), and end users, as appropriate.

4. Records shall be kept for a minimum of ten years.

Then there’s the ATT’s Article 14 (“Enforcement”), which seems to authorize the United States Executive, i.e., President, to create whatever domestic gun-control laws that are needed: “Each State Party shall take appropriate measures to enforce national laws and regulations that implement the provisions of this Treaty.”

Even worse, Article 16 of the ATT allows for U.N. personnel to help U.S. law enforcement implement treaty obligations: ” In implementing this Treaty, each State Party … may request, offer or receive assistance through, inter alia, the United Nations, international, regional, subregional or national organizations, non-governmental organizations, or on a bilateral basis.”

Article 16 also opens the door to U.S. taxpayers footing the bill for other countries’ treaty implementation: ” A voluntary trust fund shall be established by States Parties to assist requesting States Parties requiring international assistance to implement this Treaty. Each State Party is encouraged to contribute resources to the fund.”

Despite his signing the treaty, the U.S. Constitution gives the authority over foreign treaties to the United States Senate. This means the ATT is not enforceable unless and until the Senate ratifies it with a two-thirds majority vote.

But if what the Senate did on March 23, 2013, is an indication, it is not at all certain that the Senate will reject the ATT.

In the pre-dawn hours that morning, the Senate narrowly approved a measure to oppose the ATT. By a narrow vote of 53-46, the Senate passed an amendment to the budget bill “to uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.”

Imagine that: Six months ago, America was four votes away from the  Senate giving our Second Amendment Constitutional rights over to the United Nations!

Here are the 46 U.S. senators (44 Democrats, 2 Independents) who had voted to surrender our Constitutional rights to the UN. Note that there is not a single Republican among the 46 traitors, so don’t tell me  there’s not a wit of difference between the two parties!

Incredibly, according to the Huffington Post, the National Association of Evangelicals, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, National Council of Churches and “numerous retired generals and admirals” are outspoken advocates for the UN Arms Trade Treaty. Christian Post reports that a left-wing “faith” group called the American Values Network — which calls itself “an organization seeking to encourage community and family values” — even launched a video aimed at the seven U.S. senators who currently oppose the ATT.

So be sure to contact your senators and tell them to vote NO when the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty comes before the Senate for ratification!

  1. The senate has said that they will vote against this and I have to say that for the very first time, I honestly hope that they are not lying.

    As for the difference between the parties, unlike some of my fellow Libertarians I have never claimed that there are no differences. Not to hijack this thread but it always has been and remains my belief that Conservatives should take note of the party slipping to the left as evidenced by the vicious GOP smears against Cruz on Obamacare. Further, the government ruling on something as law where it has no such power or authority … as both parties are apt to do … even when republicans do it and it agrees with my personal moral standing … I believe to be an abject failure of the people to regulate government and an unlawful usurpation of governmental power and control and forces us to relinquish our liberties. Be it a right boot or a left boot, I personally prefer to see all of the jackboots removed from not only my throat but out of the collective rectum of the general populace as a whole.

    • Not a good sign:

      A Senate.gov web page covering the Constitution gets the scope of the Second Amendment wrong, telling readers that it is not clear whether the amendment protects an individual right or a collective right.

      http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/09/25/Senate-Website-Gets-Second-Amendment-Wrong

      • Already decided it’s an indvidual civil right by the Supreme Court, but left/liberalism is all about lying to people to get what you want.

    • Cruz may of caused many to Wake Up, but……check out the link to Cruz’s wife’s bio on this Daily Paul page! Derivatives specialist for Goldman Sachs?
      oh, real nice – – – – – – – NOT! What a hoax this 1/2 Cuban, Canadian born guy would be if edging out a Rand Paul patriot. I ask you, would a patriot be married to a high level international banker with the cartel?

      http://www.dailypaul.com/300250/vetting-ted-cruz

      • James Carville is married to a die-hard Conservative … does that make him a closet conservative? Sarah Palin’s husband has a more than questionable past that could easily be used to unravel a campaign … and let us not forget that she was “The Darling of the Left” when she shut down republican scandals like the “bridge to nowhere” and other such pork-based projects when she was first elected.

        Does it make it right? Nope. However, if we spend more time in-fighting trying to find the perfect candidate and tearing each other down than we do building one another up and compromising on some of our stands (which is unfortunate, borderline traitorous to our own convictions but sadly necessary in the political climate these days on a federal level at least) we will never win elections especially given the fraud and corruption that we are up against.

  2. We don’t need no stinkin’ 46 traitorous Senatorial sellouts, we need 46 carpenters and plenty of rope! (BTW, an undertaker or two would be nice too.) ;)

  3. If al Qaeda or anyone else wants to buy rocket launchers from American manufacturers, they should be able to if only because it’s good for the economy. Likewise, if I want to buy Sarin gas from the Syrians, it is my 2nd amendment right to do so. So it is crucial for economic growth and personal freedom to reject the ATT. Let your elected reps know how you feel.

    • The second amendment does not protect your right to own chemical weapons, explosives or anything of the sort. It protects your God-given right to defend yourself through the ownership and judicial use of firearms.

      Where do you come up with chemical weapons from that? Trolling for something perhaps?

      • Have you ever read the second amendment? It says the right to bear arms. not the right to bear firearms, which would be of little use against the Armed Forces of the USA, especially under a tyrannical Socialist dictator like Prez Obozo.

        • Firearms are actually most effective in dictatorships as there is only one dictator that must be removed from the equation … or at least never more than one at a time ;)

          Apart from that, while I do believe that the restrictions placed on the 2nd Amendment to be unlawful, I also believe that explosive, incendiary, chemical and other types of weapons are generally classified as weapons and not as arms. While it may merely be a difference of opinion based on semantics, the war on words is a great part of what occurred to allow us to get into this mess in the first place in my opinion.

        • Also, given recent purges in the military and efforts to effectively emasculate our veterans, while I do think there would be some that would follow unlawful orders, I do believe that a very large portion of the military would stand on the right side of the Constitution … no pun intended. Add in a hundred million or so armed patriots and I would give us better than even odds in such a scenario … God forbid, if one were to occur.

  4. In the immortal words of Charlton Heston…”From My cold dead hands”..I concur.

  5. More and more bandaids are not going to remedy the situation. There has to be a paradigm shift that causes the banksters that are in the process of their coup to take over the world operate in broad daylight. Reinstate Glass Steagall, stop funding those who bankroll the warmongers and start being American again, using up energy for this is a good idea but if Congress is in session for another couple days, and the Treasuring is running out of dough on Oct 17th or thereabout, isn’t it time to talk turkey? Before Thanksgiving …….keepin’ it light….

  6. Correction: we have to cause the stoppage of the looting of citizens money etc for derivatives trading by reinstating Glass Steagall. That would curtail the activities of the oligarchs who are bankrolling the mercenaries through their money laundering and other schemes as they destroy economy after economy. Ten for me , none for you. Ten for me, none for you. Also I meant THE TREASURY who has “suddenly” discovered ther are 20 Billion dollars sort? Excuse me? What did they do with it? ets ask for Mouchelle’s latest wardrobe additions or maybe they are just attempting to get the debt ceiling raised. I say reinstate Glass Steagall, this is getting tired.

  7. Registration, confiscation, socialist utopia– left/liberals’ perennial fantasy.

  8. He’s setting up the take over and do not trust the senate on this one. There is becoming to many rino’s like mccanut, grambutt,mcconualnut who are kissing the annointed ones butt. I think I can say for the majority of the people, if you do this it will be the button you didn’t want to push. Come to my door step uninvited and you will not like the outcome. The U.S. Constitution rules here and no other dam country is going to override that.

  9. Treasonous Kenyan comrade Dear Ruler POS.

    -Dave

    • Odinga, the murdering communist Kenyan dictator, Islamic Jihad operator is Obama’s cousin. The videos on line show O campaigning for the mastermind behind the Kenyan mall shooting. Infowars has story of U.S. special forces in the mix.

  10. This is a pure BS treaty that will do nothing to stop anything! I’ll give it 15 seconds of thought!

  11. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this significant post. Clearly, this is another maneuver of Obama to use his kingship to engage in full scale gun control. This is another method of ignoring the Constitution.
