Anti-terror Treaty Seen as 2nd Amendment Threat

Anti-terror Treaty Seen as 2nd Amendment Threat


A “Small Arms Treaty” currently being considered by the United Nations could end up infringing on American Second Amendment rights. While the measure must first pass the U.N. and then manage to secure U.S. Senate ratification, it could result in firearms licensing and confiscation, University of Houston professor Larry Bell writes in an Op-Ed for Forbes.

The treaty is aimed at fighting terrorism, insurgency and international crime syndicates but “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,” Bell writes.

While noting the terms have yet to be made public, Bell argues the measure could force the United States to enact tougher licensing requirements, confiscate and destroy all “unauthorized” civilian firearms, ban the trade, sale and private ownership of all semi-automatic weapons, and create an “international gun registry, clearly setting the stage for full-scale gun confiscation.”

“Former U.N. ambassador John Bolton has cautioned gun owners to take this initiative seriously, stating that the U.N. ‘is trying to act as though this is really just a treaty about international arms trade between nation states, but there is no doubt that the real agenda here is domestic firearms control,’” Bell wrote.

He concludes, “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.”

Very Bad defense, go out and get them is a good defense of the second amendment. Diplomatic Immunity ends the day they attack the right to keep and bear arms.
The Constitution has never meant squat to the State Department or the Professional Diplomatic Corp. The entire Adam's administration into the Jefferson administration the Diplomatic Corp. protected the Muslim pirates that were acting out of Florida (at that time still Spanish) It was not until the Muslims told Jefferson's personal representative in Europe that they had the right to take Americans as slaves that we over rode the diplomats and went to war with the Muslim nations. (The war with the Barbary Pirates)
