We have our own problems with states like California, which is poised to outlaw all semi-automatic rifles, including .22 caliber models, like the Ruger 10/22. California is also expected to pass legislation to confiscate any handgun magazine that holds more than 10 rounds. Citizens will be required to obtain an annual permit to buy ammunition. The ammo permit will cost $50 a year. Ammo will be also be subject to an additional 10% sales tax, if Governor Brown signs to the Bill, which is expected to pass this month.
Then we have the Traitor-in-Chief, Barry Obama. BO is the most dangerous man in America, when it comes to the Bill of Rights and civil liberties . Progressives are liberal fascists. Barry is their Commander in Chief.
Our freedoms are at risk as long as he’s in office. Barry has vowed to sign the UN Disarmament Treaty today. The United States contributes over $5 billion dollars a year to help the UN violate the sovereignty of our Republic.
The UN Treaty, ATT, violates our Constitutional rights as the treaty would afford the international community greater powers to regulate arms imports and exports, allowing for the barring of import or export of certain classes of firearms to and from the U.S. that “endanger women and children.”
Such broad restrictions on the import and export of firearms, the treaty affords the executive branch an opportunity to yield gun control decisions to the notably anti-gun United Nations. By offering the United Nations the right to regulate firearms that are “inappropriate” or that could conceivably “endanger women and children,” the treaty offers a blank check to the United Nations and plausible political cover for Democrats and moderate Republicans who can avoid the political fallout and claim, “Don’t blame us; it was the UN.”
THIS WILL NOT STAND IN TEXAS.
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has declared that Texas will sue the federal government if the treaty is signed and ratified. In a letter to President Obama, Abbott wrote,
“As with most so-called international-law documents promulgated by the UN, the draft treaty is not written using the precise, unambiguous language required of a good legal document. Instead, the treaty employs sweeping rhetoric and imprecise terminology that could be used by those who seek to undermine our liberties to impose any number of restrictions on the right of law-abiding Americans to keep and bear arms.”
Anticipating the treaty’s approval in the UN, the Senate, in February, voted on an approved an amendment to the budget that calls for a refusal to enter into the ATT.
Senator James Inhofe of the great state of Oklahoma, author of the amendment, called the treaty a “non-starter” shortly after its passage in the UN, casting a serious doubt over the possibility of the treaty being recognized by the United States. Inhofe stated,
“The U.N. Arms Trade Treaty that passed in the General Assembly today would require the United States to implement gun-control legislation as required by the treaty, which could supersede the laws our elected officials have already put into place. It’s time the Obama administration recognizes it is already a non-starter, and Americans will not stand for internationalists limiting and infringing upon their Constitutional rights.”
Inhofe’s amendment passed 53-46 in the Senate, which should kill the ATT in the USA, even with Barry’s signature, as 67 senators are needed to ratify the controversial treaty.
