Obama to sign UN Arms Treaty this month while congress is in recess


From The DailyCaller.com, by Dan Cannon, GunsSaveLives.net, 08/15/13 – President Obama will move forward with adding his signature to the UN Arms  Treaty before the end of this month according to Press Secretary Jay Carney.

It is feared and predicted by many gun rights groups and advocates that the  treaty, if ratified, could open up the US gun market to international  regulation.

According to a letter written by CCRKBA Chairman Alan  Gotlieb,

The uncertainty begins in the discussion of small arms. Where will the  regulations on our small arms start, and where will they stop? They are even  trying to include ammunition regulations in the Arms Trade Treaty! Will the  United Nations try to impose international licensing requirements, an  international registry, or international?

The last negotiations for an Arms Trade Treaty took place in July 2012,  just four months before the Presidential election. Obama did not want to take a  big stance for global gun control just months before his re-election but now he  has made it clear he is for total gun control. He also told voters he would not  be re-visiting negotiations for an Arms Trade treaty but here we are.

Since his re-election it has become clearer than ever what is at the top  of his agenda; taking our guns away! The Obama Administration has been  exploiting tragedies since the election to push gun control at the city, state,  federal, and now GLOBAL level.

Our Senate took a stance before the Presidential election when 51 of them  wrote Obama a letter saying they would not support an Arms Trade Treaty. We must  let our entire U.S. Senate know we do not support international gun control.  They must not ratify this international treaty.

Despite Obama’s pending signature, don’t panic just yet. The treaty must also  be ratified by the Senate, which is unlikely to happen in the immediate  future.

In fact, in March, the Senate voted to keep the US out of the arms treaty by  a vote of 53-46.

Treaties require a 2/3 majority vote by the Senate in order to be  ratified.
