Gun Grab on Pace for March
by Joe Wolverton, II
In just two
months the globalists of the UN will gather in New York City to
put the final touches on plans to impose strict regulations worldwide
on the right of the individual to buy, sell, trade, or own guns
18, 2013 in New York City the next round of negotiations is
scheduled to begin, with one aim in mind: eradicate private gun
Eve, 2012, the United Nations General Assembly approved a resolution
to renew negotiations on the global Arms Trade Treaty (ATT).
was approved by a vote of 133-0, with 17 countries abstaining.
reported by Reuters, the foreign ministers of Argentina, Australia,
Costa Rica, Finland, Japan, Kenya, and the United Kingdom
the countries that drafted the resolution released a joint
statement praising the passage of the resolution to move ahead on
the global gun ban.
"This was a
clear sign that the vast majority of U.N. member states support
a strong, balanced and effective treaty, which would set the highest
possible common global standards for the international transfer
of conventional arms," the
foreign ministers said in their statement.
The New American has reported, when the treaty was
being deliberated in July, the United States was the only obstacle
preventing the global arms control regulations from being imposed
on the world.
however, all the points of the agreement Secretary
of State Hillary Clinton found so distasteful in the summer
were made so much more palatable after President Obama’s reelection,
and every single attack on the right to bear arms remains in the
version of the treaty approved on November 7.
of his securing his reelection, President Obama placed a late night
call to the U.S. United Nations delegation ordering them to vote
in favor of a passage of L.11.
A story in
The Hill reports, however, that “The U.S. mission to the
U.N. denied that the timing of the election had anything to do with
the treaty’s talks being delayed.”
of the questionable timing of the Obama administration’s green light
to the globalists' gun grab, the U.S. government was now placing
its full weight behind convening a “Final United Nations Conference”
for the proposal of a treaty imposing worldwide gun control regulations.
In July, 51
senators sent a letter to President Obama and Secretary Clinton
encouraging them “not only to uphold our country’s constitutional
protections of civilian firearms ownership, but to ensure
if necessary, by breaking consensus at the July conference
that the treaty will explicitly recognize the legitimacy of lawful
activities associated with firearms, including but not limited to
the right of self-defense.”
to pass an acceptable version of the treaty in July is in the president’s
rearview mirror, however, as Reuters reports that “adoption of a
strong, balanced and effective Arms Trade Treaty” could be imminent.
Brian Wood of Amnesty International:
today's resounding vote, if the larger arms trading countries show
real political will in the negotiations, we're only months away
from securing a new global deal that has the potential to stop weapons
reaching those who seriously abuse human rights.
of an “abuse” of “human rights” will be left up to a coterie of
internationalist bureaucrats who will be neither accountable to
nor elected by citizens of the United States.
With good reason,
then, gun rights advocates oppose approval of this treaty.
it does seem more than a little incongruous that a nation that places
such a high value on gun ownership that it enshrined it in its Bill
of Rights participates in an organization that opposes gun ownership
so staunchly that it has an Office
for Disarmament Affairs. An office, by the way, that the U.S.
Deputy Director, Office of Weapons Removal and Abatement, Bureau
of Political-Military Affairs, Steven Costner, proudly
announced would be moving from Geneva to New York City.
