Obama Can Take Your Guns With UN Treaty

Gun owners are protected under the auspices of the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution, but their rights are not protected when
President Barack Obama becomes a signatory of a United Nations' treaty on global gun-control restrictions.
The Obama administration announced this week its support for the UN Small Arms Treaty. This international agreement poses as a grave danger for
freedom for both in the United States and around the globe by making it more strenuous - if not outright illegal - for law-abiding U.S. citizens to
keep and bear arms.
According to the Washington Times, "the U.N. claims that guns used in armed conflicts cause 300,000 deaths worldwide every year, an inordinate number
of which are the result of internal civil strife with individual nations. The solution proposed by trans-nationalists to keep rebels from getting guns
is to make the global pool of weapons smaller through government action. According to recent deliberations regarding the treaty, signatory countries
would be required to 'prevent, combat and erradicate' various classes of guns to undermine 'the illicit trade in small arms.' Such a plan would
necessarily lead to confiscation of personal firearms."
This may appear as reasonable solution for governments that don't trust their citizens, yet it represents a dictatorial disregard for the safety and
freedom of all U.S. citizens. Not all insurgencies are evil, first of all. As U.S. history reveals, one method of destroying a despotic regime is to
revolt against it. That is the very reason why authoritarian regimes such as Syria, Cuba, Rwanda, Vietnam, Zimbabwe and Sierra Leone, enforce strict
gun control laws.
As reported by the Washington Times, "the U.N. Small Arms Treaty opens a back door for the Obama administration to force through gun control
regulations. Threats to the Second Amendment are real today as ever."
I had been wondering when this was going to come out. Thoughts about how this will play out.
Mods please move if this is in the wrong area, and help me if I made any mistake as this is my first thread here at ATS.
