Can the UN destroy our second amendment right?

Would this be the proverbial straw that breaks the Americans back?

It may not come as surprising news to many of you that the United Nations doesn’t approve of our Second Amendment. Not one bit. And they very much hope to do something about it with help from some powerful American friends. Under the guise of a proposed global “Small Arms Treaty” premised to fight “terrorism”, “insurgency” and “international crime syndicates” you can be quite certain that an even more insidious threat is being targeted – our Constitutional right for law-abiding citizens to own and bear arms.

What, exactly, does the intended agreement entail?

While the terms have yet to be made public, if passed by the U.N. and ratified by our Senate, it will almost certainly force the U.S. to:

Enact tougher licensing requirements, creating additional bureaucratic red tape for legal firearms ownership.
Confiscate and destroy all “unauthorized” civilian firearms (exempting those owned by our government of course).
Ban the trade, sale and private ownership of all semi-automatic weapons (any that have magazines even though they still operate in the same one trigger pull – one single “bang” manner as revolvers, a simple fact the ant-gun media never seem to grasp).
Create an international gun registry, clearly setting the stage for full-scale gun confiscation.
In short, overriding our national sovereignty, and in the process, providing license for the federal government to assert preemptive powers over state regulatory powers guaranteed by the Tenth Amendment in addition to our Second Amendment rights.

  • Someone should remind the UN ... along with it's "powerful American friends" ... that it's home currently sits on US soil and that there are a LOT of US citizens that are currently armed (and that MOST of them are already quite dissatisfied with US membership in it's terroristic, sex abusing, money squandering habits). I would cheerfully, and personally, deliver them an eviction notice along with a letter informing them that the US is quitting all membership ~ and all payments (please stop at the door to pay up all parking tickets, hotel bills/bar tabs, and don't let it hitcha on the backside).

    If our 'powerful American traitors' insist on trying to rip up our COTUS, I'm also quite ready (and able) to show them exactly why the founders put that amendment in writing.

  • Be careful Carpy, soon the gun haters will be on here accusing you of blowing this all out of proportion. Don't you know, according to them we don't really need guns.

    This scares me! How dare the UN try to change OUR constitution that our great nation was built on? That Hillary has been championing it all along is one of the biggest reasons I would never vote for her willingly. It won't hurt her, she has her taxpayer paid security force to protect her. More elitist BS.

  • Isn't this the truth??? "Now, more than ever, it’s imperative to stick by our guns in demanding that all Constitutional rights be preserved. If not, we will surely lose both."


    It sure would be nice if people who pay their bills, use their guns responsibly and mind their own business could get some respect, but nope, instead, we are the ones who are treated like terrorists...

  • More importantly, can the US evict the UN and get better profit from renting the space to someone else?

  • NP, considering how much money we dump into the UN every year, if we turned it into a museum (possibly to memorialize things that have outgrown their usefulness) it would bring in a better profit. Converting it into condos or office space would not only generate generate a profit, but would also vastly lower our foreign spending.

    Initially, I think the idea of the UN ~ at least as it was presented ~ was a good thing. Now it is just an overpriced corruption club that has gone feral when it comes to seeking power and control over others (it sure doesn't do much to control itself OR it's employees). I truly hope that we get someone in office that has the cahones to send them packing. I don't see why we can't uphold our treaties without continuing to contribute to such a waste of money and resources.

    I agree.
    But it would be nice of they could screen out the mentally ill and paroled criminals. They don't need to be carrying a weapon. BUT, you know THAT won't happen either.
