as news of the latest massacre breaks – last week it was the slaughter of 12 people by Aaron Alexis at Washington DC's navy yard – and move on. But what if we no longer thought of this as just a problem for America and, instead, viewed it as an international humanitarian crisis – a quasi civil war, if you like, that calls for outside intervention?
If this perennial slaughter doesn't qualify for intercession by the UN and all relevant NGOs, it is hard to know what does.
There is absolutely nothing he [Obama] can do, which underscores the fact that America is in a jam and that international pressure may be one way of reducing the slaughter over the next generation. This has reached the point where it has ceased to be a domestic issue. The world cannot stand idly by.
The New American reports that Articles 2, 3 and 4 of the Arms Trade Treaty give the UN the authority to apprehend the right of private citizens to: “own, buy, sell, trade, or transfer all means of armed resistance, including handguns.” Ammunition, parts and components also fall under UN purview.
Just let them try. There will be a gun behind every blade of grass as one quote goes. There isn't a nation or group of nations suicidal enough to give it a go.

If they wanted to purposely start a war they should intervene, maybe thats the end game in all this. Thats why homeland security is buying billions of hollow tips, and military equipment. Maybe that's why fema camps are popping up. They want a American civil war, and if we dont do it in response to the obvious corruption with in in the worlds elites and the decision makers of America, they will give us a little push igniting a war on terrorism on American soil.

The U.N. is a disgrace. These broke nations that depend on America's wealth are trying to backdoor their way into the arms trading game. This is just pathetic all the propaganda "enlightened" and people who "aren't brainwashed" spew about America's guns military and economic strength and national debt. Even worse then foreign propaganda are "enlightened" Americans who have no idea about world economics, politics, or nations military capabilities.

I just can't see how they are going to "collect" your guns, maybe they will stop the sale of new ones but heck Iam sure many of you could make one.
