In September of 2013 Secretary of State John Kerry signed the United Nations Small Arms Treaty. While this treaty has not been ratified by the senate there is reason to speculate that there will be a final push to implement the global gun control scheme before President Obama leaves office. Barry has said on several occasions that a failure to implement gun control has been one of his biggest regrets as president. Many people have insisted, in an effort to alleviate fears of UN troops confiscating weapons mind you, that the U.N. treaty would in no way affect the rights of Americans to keep and bear arms. There are provisions in the text which would lead one to believe that an individual’s right is protected, such as the following paragraph-
Mindful of the legitimate trade and lawful ownership, and use of certain conventional arms for recreational, cultural, historical, and sporting activities, where such trade, ownership and use are permitted or protected by law.
There are several problems with this paragraph. For instance, there is nothing in this description that recognizes an individual’s right, or responsibility, to defend their lives or the lives of their loved ones. In fact, self defense is not a recognized human right in the U.N. Declaration of Human Rights. Secondly, who is defining legitimate trade and lawful ownership? The United Nations would be which means there would likely be a board of U.N. bureaucrats deciding who is qualified to own firearms. Finally, the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution was not written to protect recreational use of certain firearms, it exists explicitly so that free men have the means of preserving liberty by keeping and bearing arms which are consistent with modern military purposes .
There are other parts of the treaty that are a bit more alarming. For instance, Article 16 allows for individual nation states to apply for assistance in implementing the treaty if they are having trouble doing so. In other words, if a nation cannot implement the treaty that nation may appeal to the United Nations for legislative or financial assistance in implementing the treaty in that particular nation.
- In implementing this Treaty, each State Party may seek assistance including legal or legislative assistance, institutional capacity-building, and technical, material or financial assistance. Such assistance may include stockpile management, disarmament, demobilization and reintegration programs, model legislation, and effective practices for implementation. Each State Party in a position to do so shall provide such assistance, upon request.
- Each State Party may request, offer or receive assistance through, inter alia, the United Nations, international, regional, sub regional or national organizations, non-governmental organizations, or on a bilateral basis.
- A voluntary trust fund shall be established by States Parties to assist requesting States Parties requiring international assistance to implement this Treaty. Each State Party is encouraged to contribute resources to the fund.
Notice that the first paragraph also suggests that nations may seek help in disarmament, demobilization and reintegration programs? That’s an interesting revelation considering that President Obama and Loretta Lynch are paving the way for foreign troops to police American cities through the Strong Cities Network.
This article really isn’t about the treaty itself but the fact that on May 31st the U.N. will be releasing its first annual report concerning the global implementation of the treaty.
It would be interesting to see how the U.S. scores on this report seeing as though we have a president who has failed to pass his gun control initiatives. Not only that, he also seems to be deliberately arming Isis, running guns to Mexican drug cartels and even more recently, he lifted a decades old arms embargo on Vietnam in an effort to keep China in check. The President has also done absolutely nothing to address the real causes of gun violence in the inner cities, leaving young black children at the mercy of gang warfare. This leaves the impression that the U.S. has an out of control gun epidemic even though we all know this isn’t true. President Obama is deliberately trying to discredit the United States by allowing this type of violence to run rampant. He is attempting to portray the U.S. as a gun running nation in an effort to get the United Nations to intervene and force the implementation of the treaty because the U.S. Senate refuses to ratify it.
While many may view this as an outrageous conspiracy theory it isn’t that far from the realm of probability. President Obama operates using the Hegelian Dialectic, which is the Problem-Reaction-Solution strategy. This was apparent when Rham Emanual said that you should never let a good crisis go to waste. Also, the communists once devised a plan where they would deliberately portray the United States as an imperialist, war mongering nation and present the Soviet Union, or communism, as a system that promotes global peace and cooperation. This plan was called the communist peace offensive and it was presented to the U.S. Congress in 1951 by John Foster Dulles, Republican advisor to the State Department. It is the opinion of this author that we are witnessing this plan in action as President Obama has continually discredited our culture and encouraged an atmosphere of racial violence, while also suggesting we have an out of control gun problem. The anti-gun left will eventually demand the implementation of this treaty with or without the senates ratification.
“The government encouraged the manufacture and importation of military firearms for the criminals to use. This is intended to foster a feeling of insecurity, which would lead the American people to voluntarily disarm themselves by passing laws against firearms. Using drugs and hypnosis on mental patients in a process called Orion, the CIA inculcated the desire in these people to open fire on schoolyards and thus inflame the antigun lobby. This plan is well under way, and so far is working perfectly. The middle class is begging the government to do away with the 2nd amendment.” (William Cooper, Behold A Pale Horse)
