Obama Sends UN’s Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) To Senate for Ratification

Truth About Guns – by John Boch

President Obama has about one month left in office and he’s throwing lots of pooh against the wall to see if he can get something to stick.  The latest handful of smelly excrement?  America’s Greatest Gun Salesman ever (even CNN agrees) has sent the United Nation’s Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) to the U.S. Senate for one final (desperate) effort at securing its ratification.  Of course, the incoming administration will flush it down the commode for good if Obama fails.

The UN’s ATT includes, per the NRA:  

Notably, the ATT includes “small arms and light weapons” within its scope, which covers firearms owned by law-abiding citizens. Further, the treaty urges recordkeeping of end users, directing importing countries to provide information to an exporting country regarding arms transfers, including “end use or end user documentation” for a “minimum of ten years.” Each country is to “take measures, pursuant to its national laws, to regulate brokering taking place under its jurisdiction for conventional arms.” Data kept on the end users of imported firearms is a de-facto registry of law-abiding firearms owners, which is a violation of federal law. Even worse, the ATT could be construed to require such a registry to be made available to foreign governments.

The “courageous” medal tossing Democrat Secretary of State John Kerry signed the abomination on September 25, 2013 but its ratification has been held up as Democrats could only muster 46 votes for passage the last time someone counted.

Its passage looks doubtful this time as well, but it’s something we all should watch and if necessary, start making calls to our respective State Senators if it looks as though it might come up for a vote.

Breitbart News reported:

Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) released a statement on Obama’s new attempt at ratification, saying:

Since 2012, many senators, including myself, have expressed opposition to the small arms treaty, citing an array of concerns with Second Amendment rights. Nothing has changed over the last four years to suggest the treaty is in our national interest, and it will remain dead in the water. I reiterate my strong opposition and will work with my colleagues to protect the rights of Americans.

  1. “Of course, the incoming administration will flush it down the commode for good if Obama fails.”

    Uh huh. Sure. Because chump is one of the people, right?

    Watch for it to reappear in a different form, with different packaging to appeal to the trumpet-blowers because he endorses it. He is their pied piper. Hell, those a-holes would war for him if he rattled their desperate cages enough.

  2. Who gives a rat’s rectum?

    When you understand that we’re going to end up fighting them all anyway, when, where, and how it begins is of little importance.

    Let’s just get all the A-holes out of our lives once and for all, and no, I don’t think it’s going to be easy, and certainly not pretty, but please, tell me what options we’ve been left with. I’d love to hear a viable, peaceful solution to our problems, but I’ve searched in vain for one for too long, myself.

  3. Yes please, bring it, get it started…pass all the fkn laws and edicts you want….you stupid authoritarian maggots…I have taught my kids to think free and understand what real freedom is etc…So, you have already lost…..

    Older average good folks like me want you to make your laws and then come enforce them……we ain’t Australians or German’s or Brit’s…..me thinks you know this, you chicken shit’s….come on pull the trigger…..do it….

    With baited breath, we await you, as do the gallows……..
