They will never take guns from Americans. IF they tried it would be instant civil war imo, I would think they would have to bring in UN troops to enforce it and I don't see that ending well for those troops lol Americans are nuts,

I love how the President, after getting elected, never gets any input from the people who voted them in. They take it upon themselves to issue orders no matter if they are popular or not.
Its like "Hey you voted me to represent you, thanks for your input, I'm just gonna do it this way."
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.

So let me get this straight. Americans have the right to bear arms, EXCEPT for the list? So when did the right to bear arms get diced up and quantified into specifically what is okay and not okay?

I went through some of the listed weapons using google images search. They all seem to be military grade weapons or the type special forces would use. Forgive my ignorance of guns, being from the uk i have never actually seen a real one. But anyone can see the type of weapons listed are designed for one purpose, to kill lots of people very quickly.......
So the question in my mind is why would anyone want such weapons? what possible reason could you have for wanting to amass a military arsenal? I can understand hunting rifles and a handgun in the home for protection, but not this absurdity. The sooner they ban it the better
