I have but one sincere and honest thought.
come and take them.
This is a discussion on gun ban due to UN treaty within the The Second Amendment & Gun Legislation Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; I received a call from the NRA yesterday asking for a donation to curb the actions of the United Nations to outlaw guns by treaty ...
I received a call from the NRA yesterday asking for a donation to curb the actions of the United Nations to outlaw guns by treaty with other nations. Has any one else received such a call? When I give to the NRA its usually through the mail. I would appreciate any thoughts you all might have on this.
My thoughts are this is alarmist bravo Sierra. Any sources cited?
Scary because it would be a legal gray area, but in practice I think the chances of it actually happening are near zero.
Public support for something like this would probably be like 5-10%...people would be really angry.
Basically, I'm not worried about a treaty. My primary concern for the future is ordinary laws, which of course you can deal with through elections.

Treaties may not abrogate or modify the Constitution, and where a treaty conflicts with the Constitution, the treaty is void. See Reid v. Covert (1957).

Here's a semi-pseudo-news story on the topic (written as news but I can't confirm them as being a news source)
U.N. gun ban faces pre-emptive attack
I've heard bits and pieces of this in the internet rumor mill, but it may give you a basis to do some more in depth research on your own.
IIRC it would have to pass through Congress. I don't believe it's one of those things someone can just sign and we are done. I could be wrong on this, anyone know for sure. And then there is the constitutionality issue. But there is a push for nations to sign onto a small arms compact with the UN. It's real, it exists, I don't think it's very feasible here though. It is supposed to deal with illicit/illegal gun sales, but whether or not is stops there is the issue I think.
No call here. Just letters and e-mails. They want a cc number?
