    Civil War is Coming
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) -

    The United States reversed policy on Wednesday and said it would back launching talks on a treaty to regulate arms sales as long as the talks operated by consensus, a stance critics said gave every nation a veto. The decision, announced in a statement released by the U.S. State Department, overturns the position of former President George W. Bush's administration, which had opposed such a treaty on the grounds that national controls were better. On Wednesday Obama Took the First Major Step in a Plan to Ban All Firearms in the United States.

    The Obama administration intends to force gun control and a complete ban on all weapons for US citizens through the signing of international treaties with foreign nations. By signing international treaties on gun control, the Obama administration can use the US State Department to bypass the normal legislative process in Congress. Once the US Government signs these international treaties, all US citizens will be subject to those gun laws created by foreign governments. These are laws that have been developed and promoted by organizations such as the United Nations and individuals such as George Soros and Michael Bloomberg. The laws are designed and intended to lead to the complete ban and confiscation of all firearms. It will never happen!

    The Obama administration is attempting to use tactics and methods of gun control that will inflict major damage to our 2nd Amendment before US citizens even understand what has happened. Obama can appear before the public and tell them that he does not intend to pursue any legislation (in the United States) that will lead to new gun control laws, while cloaked in secrecy, his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton is committing the US to international treaties and foreign gun control laws.

    Does that mean Obama is telling the truth? What it means is that there will be no publicized gun control debates in the media or votes in Congress.

    We will wake up one morning and find that the United States has signed a treaty that prohibits firearm and ammunition manufacturers from selling to the public.

    We will wake up another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that prohibits any transfer of firearm ownership. And then, we will wake up yet another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that requires US citizens to deliver any firearm they own to the local government collection and destruction center or face imprisonment.

    This is not a joke nor a false warning. As sure as government health care will be forced on us by the Obama administration through whatever means necessary, so will gun control.


    Straight into socialism if Obama has his way...

    We are being led like a lamb to the slaughter (Socialism/Dictatorship).

    This was a pre-August 2012 press release. The treaty was negotiated in August, and nothing was agreed to or signed.

    Hours after U.S. President Barack Obama was re-elected, the United States backed a U.N. committee's call on Wednesday to renew debate over a draft international treaty to regulate the $70 billion global conventional arms trade. ...

    The month-long talks at U.N. headquarters broke off after the United States — along with Russia and other major arms producers — said it had problems with the draft treaty and asked for more time.

    But the U.N. General Assembly's disarmament committee moved quickly after Obama's win to approve a resolution calling for a new round of talks March 18-28. It passed with 157 votes in favor, none against and 18 abstentions.

    To the fools who think that the election of Obama is a benign eventn and that nothing much will change:

    This is then left's chance to change everything they don't like about America with nothing to stop them. Only a fool would believe that people who lie, cheat and steal would be "fair". They will load the Supreme Court with leftist "judges" and procede to change all the things they hate about America and about you and me. Perhaps the best we can hope for is a civil war!

    I got it wrong. That reads just like the press release before the August 2012 meeting about this treaty. A long debate should follow, discussing the interplay between the US Constitution and international treaties.

    Treaties cannot override the Constitution.

    Unfortunately, Obama and his cronies feel the Constitution is toilet paper.

    So if this gets signed, I expect Obama to try to make an end run around the Constitution. As well as use the treaty to try to get congress to pass gun control. For example, the treaty only works if all guns are registered and are traceable. So the pitch will be that we are in violation of the treaty if congress fails to act.

    I may be incorrect. I think a treaty requires a 2/3rd Senate vote. It does not even go to Congress. Please correct me if I am wrong. Jeff

    Stop & think for a moment..just days before the election they mobilized units of the National Guard..no destination, just stand by. How much ammo did the Homeland Security buy during this past year? Just what in hell are they preparing for, a civil war? Open our borders to permit enough illegals in to weigh the vote. Now we bring up the UN movement to block arms sales. And the background sponsers, Geo Soros, Blumberg, and the likes! Looks to me like we are in line for another Executive Order, Congress doesn't have to approve those! I love my country, I fear my government!

    To all who think our gun rights are not in jepordy, don't
    forget to hang your sock up on Christmas eve night. We are
    in for a lot of efforts to restrict and confiscate our guns.
    Of course, the gang bangers will turn theirs in immediately.
