    I got this in the mail and was wondering if it's for real or BS.

    While you were watching the oil spill, the New York failed terrorist bombing and other critical crises, Hillary Clinton signed the small arms treaty with the UN.

    OBAMA FINDS LEGAL WAY AROUND THE 2ND AMENDMENT
    AND USES IT. IF THIS PASSES, THERE could BE WAR

    On Wednesday Obama Took the First Major Step in a
    Plan to Ban All Firearms in the United States

    On Wednesday the Obama administration took its 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. 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 has happened in other countries, past and present!
    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. Read the Article U.S. reverses stance on treaty to regulate arms trade 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. View The Full Article Here

    It's neither true nor untrue from what I understand. Although she did in fact do that, the US is subject to no treaty not ratified by congress so she can sign her little heart out and it means nothing since it won't pass the house of representatives.


    Doesn't mean they don't want it too and that they are elitest scum who fears an armed population, it just means that they have to try harder.

    I think vietcongress is loathe to pass anything remotely anti-gun right now. Look how they're giving a BJ to the NRA.

    Can you imagine a vote hungry politician sending Federal troops door to door to confiscate firearms? Not likely.

    He has discouraged interest in shooting and firearms by wrecking the economy. Hopefully most people will see through this and not give up.

    Rimfingeridiot,,the loose screws are squarely in your camp. The liberals you vote for, defend, prop up and support.

    And what would you people know about God? Liberalism removed the Ten Commandments from schools, and anything else to do with organized religion is lambasted to no end from the left. The religious persecution from the left has escalated at a rate never seen before.

    Same old, same old. This one has been around quite a while (as far back as Clinton actually), but has never gone anywhere. Has been posted a number of times in the past few months since Hilary has been talking it up again with the U.N., but as earlier noted, any treaty has to be approved by the Senate, so not much chance of that any time soon. Still, goes to show that the left has not given up their dreams (wet dreams, really) of finding ways to take away private ownership of firearms in America some day.

    rimfire, I really truly wish I lived in your world where people are inherently good, the government has your best interests at heart, and you can cure cancer with sunshine and puppies.

    Unfortunately I grew up many years ago and realized that freedom is neither free nor can it be entrusted to fools. We have currently forgotten both of those things.
