On Wednesday the Obama administration took its first major step in a plan to ban all firearms in the United States .

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. 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.

So who still thinks that we won't lose our 2nd amendment rights? Congress will need to ratify any treaty made, but I don't know that I can trust this congress to NOT do that...

  • Well what do you expect? We TRIED to tell all the liberals and other Obama-fans that he was no good, that he would run the country into the toilet and try to take away our rights and is a socialist crazy! But no one listened!!! I betcha he tries to take our guns, there'll be plenty of militia saying "No sir. Oh by the way, you are no longer in power, as you are taking our rights, you have NOT taken the right for us to form and uprising if the gov't takes our freedoms." Yep.

  • You know, I really am starting to have some faith that this idiot administration and it's minions are on the way out, with NO SECOND TERM!

    The men in my community, and thousands of other communities like mine, will NEVER give them up.

    Obama may think these men are unsophisticated , but taking guns away from law abiding citizens is a language even they can understand!
    Like so many other areas, this is one that he just doesn't understand................

  • He had ole Hill do his dirty work, so he can get up in front of us and tell us that HE has no plans to introduce legislation to introduce gun control. He's just going to let Hillary do it all with the UN. He is a manipulating liar.

  • Look at the whole story.

    (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.

    U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the United States would support the talks as long as the negotiating forum, the so-called Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty, "operates under the rules of consensus decision-making."

    "Consensus is needed to ensure the widest possible support for the Treaty and to avoid loopholes in the Treaty that can be exploited by those wishing to export arms irresponsibly," Clinton said in a written statement.

  • While praising the Obama administration's decision to overturn the Bush-era policy and to proceed with negotiations to regulate conventional arms sales, some groups criticized the U.S. insistence that decisions on the treaty be unanimous.

    "The shift in position by the world's biggest arms exporter is a major breakthrough in launching formal negotiations at the United Nations in order to prevent irresponsible arms transfers," Amnesty International and Oxfam International said in a joint statement.

    However, they said insisting that decisions on the treaty be made by consensus "could fatally weaken a final deal."

    "Governments must resist US demands to give any single state the power to veto the treaty as this could hold the process hostage during the course of negotiations. We call on all governments to reject such a veto clause," said Oxfam International's policy adviser Debbie Hillier.
