Obama Pushing UN Gun Control

Kansas Senator Jerry Moran introduced legislation to prohibit the Obama administration from negotiating away our gun rights as part of the UN Arms Trade Treaty (ATT).

The ATT is a backdoor attempt to impose massive restrictions on U.S. gun rights. While negotiations on the treaty are being held behind closed doors, here it is certain to include language that will:

  • Require the registration and licensure of American firearms;
  • Ban large categories of firearms;
  • Require the mandatory destruction of surplus ammo and confiscated firearms;
  • Define manufacturing so broadly that any gun owner who adds an accessory such as a scope or changes a stock on a firearm would be required to obtain a manufacturing license;
  • Require “microstamping” of ammunition.

The treaty could also be self-executing, which would mean that it would achieve its anti-gun objectives whether or not implementing legislation was passed by Congress.

Some people think the U.S. would never sign off on such a treaty. Well, think again.

In 2009, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced the U.S. agreed to negotiate on the treaty.

That’s a shift from the Bush administration, which declared the ATT dead on arrival. President Bush wouldn’t have delivered the treaty to the Senate for ratification, but Obama can’t wait to use this vehicle as a way to show his anti-gun base that he is doing something on the gun control front.-[source]
