The Truth About The UN Small Arms Treaty

by David Morris on April 12, 2010

I get emails ALMOST every day about Obama and Hillary signing on to the UN Small Arms Treaty.

They usually say that it happened “last Wednesday” and try to combine it with some current event.

In short, these emails are lies/hoaxes/cons sent out to make gun owners look stupid.  Don’t fall for it.  If you’re going to forward something, forward my newsletters, but please don’t spread hoax’s like this one.  In fact, if you received a forwarded email with the UN Small Arms Treaty hoax email, please do a reply-all with the URL for this page in it so that we can try to stop the spread of dis-information.

>> <<

Almost all versions of the email include a link to a reuters article saying that the events mentioned happened in 2009…not LAST Wednesday.

Here’s a brief overview of what’s going on.  The bill is in the VERY early stages.  It is on track to get voted on in 2012, and it requires a 2/3 majority in the Senate to get ratified.  The NRA-ILA is actively involved in this fight and I’ll be one of the first to be notified when it is time for us to contact our representatives.

Here’s a copy of one version of the email:


On Wednesday Obama Took the First Major Step in a
Plan to Ban All Firearms in the United States

On Wednesday the Obama administration took its first major step in a plan to ban all firearms in the United States . The Obama administration intends to force gun control and a complete ban on all weapons for US citizens through the signing of international treaties with foreign nations. 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. These are laws that have been developed and promoted by organizations such as the United Nations and individuals such as George Soros and Michael Bloomberg. The laws are designed and intended to lead to the complete ban and confiscation of all firearms. 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.

 Obama can appear before the public and tell them that he does not intend to pursue any legislation (in the United States) that will lead to new gun control laws, while cloaked in secrecy, his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton is committing the US to international treaties and foreign gun control laws. Does that mean Obama is telling the truth? What it means is that there will be no publicized gun control debates in the media or votes in Congress. We will wake up one morning and find that the United States has signed a treaty that prohibits firearm and ammunition manufacturers from selling to the public. We will wake up another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that prohibits any transfer of firearm ownership. And then, we will wake up yet another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that requires US citizens to deliver any firearm they own to the local government collection and destruction center or face imprisonment. This has happened in other countries, past and present!
As sure as government health care will be forced on us by the Obama administration through whatever means necessary, so will gun control. Read the Article U.S. reverses stance on treaty to regulate arms trade WASHINGTON (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. View The Full Article Here

There are hoaxes etc. out there, but you can read almost every day about how some folks are doing their best to deliver us to a one-world government. i.e. the reporting of Arizona to the human rights org. in the U.N! Now, if this info is wrong, please correct me, but I saw this on several news prgrams So, if this is true, the gun thing is not too hard to see in the future, along with many other possibles that spell he end of te thing we call FREEDOM!!!

Bill – Conservative commentators agree with your insight that it will probably pass the Senate. The one possible thing that can defeat it are the Dems who are up for reelection in November and have to deal with their voters who are now sending their messages to CapHill. Unfortunately, your second insight may end up coming to pass. People are extremely upset. Some believe this will be the catalyst for POTUS to declare his “State of Emergency” prior to the election taking place which would institute marshal law. If he’s suspending the US Constitution with this act, only God knows what he’ll try to do with the elections and trying to remain in power and further enslaving us to his radical brand of internationalism and social/economic deprivation. If marshal law id declared, be aware that the “banking holiday” may not be far behind. If that is the case, remember that CASH IS KING – – – (HINT!)
