United Nations Small Arms Treaty Not Dead
United Nations Small Arms Treaty Not Dead

Opponents arrayed against the United Nations’ anti-gun effort
prematurely celebrated on Friday as the treaty stalled due to member
states failing to reach an agreement on revised language in the text.
The treaty went into limbo after the United States, Russia and China
called for more time to consider revisions.
NGOs and gun-grabber groups portrayed the stall as “stunning
cowardice” and a “staggering abdication of leadership” and attributed
the supposed failure to the Obama administration. A nameless diplomat
went so far as to claim the U.S. had “derailed the process” and
complained that there is little hope the treaty will be revived after
the U.S. election.
The U.S. State Department, however, said in a statement released at
the conclusion of the negotiating conference that the effort will indeed
be revived after the election in November. “While we sought to conclude
the month’s negotiations with a treaty, more time is a reasonable
request for such a complex and critical issue,” said State Department
spokeswoman Victoria Nuland.
The extended timeframe will give Second Amendment opponents time to
ramp up their propaganda campaign in favor of gun control following the
suspiciously timed mass shooting in Colorado.
A number of establishment intellectuals – with CFR member Joe Klein
leading the pack at Time Magazine – are now pushing “sensible” and
“moderate” approaches to disarming the American people. Klein’s Time
article, set to roll out on August 6, features a photo of a 100-round
ammo drum of the sort James Holmes supposedly used in Aurora.
Gun-grabbers in Congress have set their sites on extended round clips
and other firearm accessories.
Although Bloomberg in New York and Chuck Schumer in the Senate and
others are talking up outlawing armor-piercing ammunition and
semi-automatic weapons, the establishment has responded to the
bureaucratic snafu at the United Nations by playing possum or playing
After the election finale in November and the installation of Romney
or the re-installation of Obama as chief teleprompter reader in January,
not only will there be a push for a new round of restrictive gun laws
in America, but the stalled United Nations treaty will be dusted off and
the bickering between nations will finally end with a gun-grabbing
As Al Benson, Jr.,
notes, careerist politicians are reluctant to press forward on
legislation for fear of their cushy jobs. “As for the Senators, this is,
after all, an election year and if they antagonize their gun-owning
constituency many of them will be in big trouble, so they have to try to
placate us, at least for now, until they get back into office. Then all
bets are off, especially if Comrade Obama gets a second term (notice I
didn’t say “wins” a second term),” he writes.
The corporate media has portrayed those of us concerned about a
United Nations treaty outlawing our guns as conspiracy kooks and
paranoids. They insist the Constitution trumps any internationalist
treaty and there is nothing to worry about, so we need to relax.
But as CFR minion Joe Klein knows, the one-world government crowd has
no respect for the Constitution and works relentlessly to undermine it.
“For decades, apostles of one-world government have endeavored to
convince the American people that treaties, rather than the
Constitution, embody the supreme law of the land. In 1952, Secretary of
State and Council on Foreign Relations member John Foster Dulles told
the American Bar Association that ‘Treaty law can override the
Constitution…Treaties, for example…can cut across the rights given the
people by the constitutional Bill of Rights,” writes Doug Book.
Book notes that even if the courts decide against the treaty after it
is ratified in the Senate, Obama will undoubtedly move to ignore any
such decision as he has done with Fast and Furious and other laws
enacted by Congress, in particular his decision to ignore a law to
deport illegal aliens.
“If the president says we’re not going to enforce the law, there’s
really nothing anyone can do about it,” University of Pennsylvania
constitutional law professor Kermit Roosevelt told Politico in June. “It’s clearly a political calculation.”
Disarming America is undoubtedly a front and center “political calculation” for the globalists
