International Treaty to Ban Handguns?
Does anyone have any information about President Obama going after a handgun ban in the United States by signing an international treaty. Can this really be happening?
U.S. reverses stance on treaty to regulate arms trade | Reuters
On Wednesday the Obama administration took its first major step in a plan to ban all firearms in the United States . The Obama administration intends to force gun control and a complete ban on all weapons for US citizens through the signing of international treaties with foreign natio ns. By signing international treaties on gun control, the Obama administration can use the US State Department to bypass the normal legislative process in Congress Once the US Government signs these international treaties, all US citizens will be subject to those gun laws created by foreign governments. These are laws that have been developed and promoted by organizations such as the United Nations and individuals such as George Soros and Michael Bloomberg The laws are designed and intended to lead to the complete ban and confiscation of all firearms.
The Obama administration is attempting to use tactics and methods of gun control that will inflict major damage to our 2nd Amendment before US citizens even understand what has happened. Obama can appear before the public and tell them that he does not intend to pursue any legislation
(in the United States) that will lead to new gun control laws, while cloaked in secrecy, his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton is commi tting the US to international treaties and foreign gun control laws. Does that mean Obama is telling the truth? What it means is that there will be no publicized gun control debates in the media or votes in Congress. We will wake up one morning and find that the United States has signed a treaty that prohibits firearm and ammunition manufacturers from selling to the public. We will wake up another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that prohibits any transfer of firearm ownership. And then, we will wake up yet another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that requires US citizens to deliver any firearm they own to the local government collection and destruction center or face imprisonment.
This is not a joke nor a false warning. As sure as government health care will be forced on us by the Obama administration through whatever means necessary, so will gun control.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States reversed policy on Wednesday and said it would back launching talks on a treaty to regulate arms sales as long as the talks operated by consensus, a stance critics said gave every nation a veto.
The decision, announced in a statement released by the U.S. State Department, overturns the position of former President George W. Bush's administration, which had opposed such a treaty on the grounds that national controls were better.

Just the thought is an "Obamanation". In this country we still and allways will have the 2nd amendment, no international law will change that.
However, international trade could change for the worst. We'r gona have to watch these idiots closely.
Timid people sleep peacefully at night because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

I doubt that even this Liberal congress would try to ratify a treaty that stomps on the 2nd amendment. Many of the Dems in congress now are 2A supporters or come from districts that are VERY pro-2A so it would be a bad thing for them.
Now, if this did in fact come to pass, I believe that this might just be another possible thing that starts what I have called the possible 2nd American Revolution.
But I might just be a kook.
