The United Nations Efforts to Disarm the U.S.

Much more material about the United Nations can be found on this page.

Beware: The United Nations Is Taking Aim at Ammo.  The United Nations will have a busy year in 2018 on the firearms front.  That's not good news for anyone in the U.S. who buys firearms.  When it comes to the U.N. and guns, the best form of action is always inaction.  Worse, manufacturers and importers at this year's SHOT Show — the Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show, organized by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the trade association for the firearms industry, which ran from Jan. 23 to 26 — believe they're starting to see the results of past U.N. anti-gun efforts.  Bottom line:  there are more problems for U.S. gun importers, while China gets a free pass on a critical issue.

UN Gun Control Body Supported By Obama Sets Up Veto-Proof Framework.  Representatives attending the UN Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) in Mexico this week have set up a structure for future conferences on gun control that include a veto-proof decision making process.  According to Reuters, representatives from 130 countries gathered in Mexico, although only 72 countries have fully ratified the treaty.  They determined that Geneva will be "the seat of the permanent secretariat for the ATT" and they unanimously decided that unanimous agreements would not have to be reached on gun control decisions going forward.  This gives the body a veto-proof process for making gun control decisions going forward.

Kerry signs UN arms treaty, senators threaten to block it.  Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday signed a controversial U.N. treaty on arms regulation, riling U.S. lawmakers who vow the Senate will not ratify the agreement. [...] "The Obama administration is once again demonstrating its contempt for our fundamental, individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms," Chris Cox, executive director of the NRA's Institute for Legislative Action, said in a statement.  "These are blatant attacks on the constitutional rights and liberties of every law-abiding American.  The NRA will continue to fight this assault on our fundamental freedom."  Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., one of the most vocal opponents of the treaty, also sent a letter to Kerry declaring the treaty "dead in the water," since a majority of senators has gone on record against the agreement.

Are You Ready for Remote Concealed Carry Detection Devices?  Man-portable concealed carry detection devices are being designed by a team of Canadian and Ukrainian scientists for a recently funded U.N. project.  The goal is to interrogate potential threats for firearms and other concealed weapons on their person without their permission. [...] Previous prototypes of man-portable radar detection devices have only had a range of around 10 feet.  The U.N.'s goal is to develop a system that can detect a concealed firearm or weapon on a person from 50 feet away.

Gun Grab U.N. Arms Treaty To Take Effect Dec. 24.  To some, concern over a U.N. Arms Trade Treaty set to take effect Dec. 24 is much ado about nothing. But a president unconstrained by Congress or the Constitution may try to impose severe limits on gun rights. [...] The Orwellian-named United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs, which has disarmed none of the world's tyrants or terrorists, has announced on its website that the ATT will take effect on Christmas Eve, a lump of coal in the stockings of anyone who believes, as our Founding Fathers did when they wrote the Second Amendment, that guns in the hands of private citizens are the best defense against predators, terrorists and, yes, tyrannical governments.

Reminder: Mary Landrieu, Claire McCaskill, and 44 other Democrats Voted to Cede Your Gun Rights to the U.N..  Senate Amendment 139, proposed by GOP Senator James Inhofe, states simply the intent to "uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty."  In July Adm. James A. Lyons (Ret.), former Commander-in-Chief of the Pacific Fleet and a senior military representative to the United Nations, described the ominous goals of the "One World Government"-types as it pertains to firearms: [...]

Small-arms treaty, big Second Amendment threat.  [Scroll down]  A number of major defects in the U.N. treaty were detailed in a letter sent to President Obama in October 2013 by 50 senators — both Republicans and Democrats.  The first problem was that the treaty was adopted by majority vote in the U.N. General Assembly, not by consensus, a condition called for by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  After entry into force, the senators contend, the Arms Trade Treaty can be amended by majority vote of signatory countries, effectively negating the Senate's constitutional treaty power and handing it to foreign governments.

A Call to Vigilance.  Don't make the mistake of thinking that there are not a significant number of Senators who would be willing to trample your second amendment right, that was proven a while back when a senatorial vote was taken to abolish the treaty, to take it off the table permanently and 46 Senators voted against the move.  I think, at least in the area where I live, federal attempts to confiscate guns would result in a quasi-civil war as people down home believe they are guaranteed the right to own guns by the constitution and that no global monstrosity like the United Nations should have any say over their lives at all.  The Obama administration has shown its true colors and its obvious immaturity by knowingly putting high-powered firearms in the hands of the murderous drug cartels — Fast and Furious — while doing their best to disarm American citizens.  The United Nations' reason for this treaty has nothing to do with reducing violence and everything to do with making the people of this nation defenseless against anything that is shoved down our throats.

Gun registry 'scheme' among concerns over UN arms treaty.  Secretary of State John Kerry signed an international treaty on arms regulation Wednesday [9/25/2013], angering conservative lawmakers and rattling the National Rifle Association despite claims that the treaty won't infringe on gun rights.  So what's all the fuss about?  The treaty, which took seven years to negotiate, would regulate the $70 billion global trade in conventional arms.  The U.S. is the largest arms exporter in the world, and Kerry's signature was seen as a significant step in pushing it forward.

UN Arms Treaty will be menace to US for years to come.  Today, treaties are not just about international conduct.  They seek to regulate how we raise our children, how we treat the disabled, and how we manage our firearms market.  As a result, the old requirement not to violate the "object and purpose" of a signed treaty has become a way to evade the need for Senate ratification.  And in the case of the Arms Trade Treaty, the problem is even worse.  The administration will argue that it already has all the powers it needs to enforce the treaty.

Kerry signs U.N. Arms Trade Treaty, says won't harm U.S. rights.  The United States signed a U.N. Arms Trade Treaty regulating the $70 billion global trade in conventional arms on Wednesday [9/25/2013] and the Obama administration sought to allay the fears of the powerful U.S. gun lobby which says the pact will violate the constitutional rights of Americans.

Second Amendment Under Attack: John Kerry to Sign U.N. Gun Treaty.  Secretary of State John Kerry has announced his intention to sign the United Nations' gun treaty that has Second Amendment advocates in a stir.  The United Nations General Assembly approved the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) earlier this year, which has been designed to regulate the traffic and possession of weapons between countries.  However, it is likely that the true aim of the treaty is to try and regulate individual firearm ownership while Democrats coyly note, "Don't blame us; it's the UN."

John Kerry pretty pumped about signing off on UN arms trade treaty.  The Obama administration went pretty mum about the ongoing issue in the run-up to the presidential election, but has since declared their full and enthusiastic support for the project that a group of 130 lawmakers last week called a "deeply flawed" document that "suffers from vagueness" and which they recommend the administration should abstain from signing.

Obama To Sign International Gun Control Treaty On June 3rd.  This treaty is ostensibly aimed at putting an end to gun trafficking across international boundaries, and both Breitbart News and the NRA have argued that it will eventually require an international gun registry in order to be enforceable.  The ATT also provides the executive branch of our government with broad powers for controlling which guns do and don't come into the country, and includes ambiguous language that a gun-control-friendly administration can use to its advantage.

Obama's United Nations Backdoor to Gun Control.  Even before his most ambitious gun-control proposals were falling by the wayside, President Obama was turning for help to the United Nations.  On April 2, the United States led 154 nations to approve the Arms Trade Treaty in the U.N. General Assembly.  While much of the treaty governs the international sale of conventional weapons, its regulation of small arms would provide American gun-control advocates with a new tool for restricting rights.

U.S. Agrees To U.N. Global Gun Control.  Despite a prior Senate rebuff, President Obama will likely sign and push a treaty embraced by the world's oppressors and thugs who fear armed citizens.  The treaty's prior rejection by the Senate 53-46 in a nonbinding test vote as part of the budget debate in a body where a two-thirds vote to ratify is required would seem to doom the United Nations pact endorsed by the Obama administration.  However, the president will likely sign it and, as is his custom these days, try to enforce key provisions by stealth, executive order and by "common-sense" regulations and restrictions.

Texas AG Abbott Throws 'Red Flag Alert' After UN Passes Arms Treaty.  Texas GOP Vote reports that Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is alarmed after the United Nations General Assembly today [4/2/2013] passed the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty. [...] Abbott sent a letter to President Obama, stating that "Treaties do not trump constitutional liberties.  Even if you, as the President, signed and the Senate ratified the UN Arms Trade Treaty, our Constitution remains the Supreme Law of the Land and would supersede any treaty provision that violated Second Amendment rights."

Texas AG to Obama: Ratify UN arms treaty and I'll sue.  If President Obama signs the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty approved today and the Senate ratifies it, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbot will sue, he told Obama in a letter today [4/2/2013].  "The Arms Trade Treaty agreed to today by the United Nations (UN) is a threat to Americans' Constitutional liberty," Abbott wrote.  "I urge you to reject that treaty.  If you sign it, and if the U.S. Senate ratifies the treaty, Texas will lead the charge to have the treaty overturned in court as a violation of the U.S. Constitution."

New U.N. arms treaty faces rough road in U.S. Senate.  The new global arms trade treaty was overwhelmingly approved by the United Nations, with U.S. backing, but it was clear on Wednesday [4/3/2013] it faces a tough fight for ratification by U.S. senators who contend it could affect Americans' gun rights.

UN Goes For America's Guns — New Law Could Lead to National Registry.  The United Nations today passed sweeping legislation that will regulate the international arms trade and could lead to a national registry in the United States.

U.N. passes sweeping international arms regulation viewed by some as Second Amendment override.  The United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday [4/2/2013] signed off on a sweeping, first-of-its-kind treaty to regulate the international arms trade, brushing aside worries from U.S. gun rights advocates that the pact could lead to a national firearms registry and disrupt the American gun market.

Here are the 46 Senators Who Voted to Turn Your Gun Rights Over to UN.  The anti-gun senators are all Democrats or so-called Independents.

Buyers, beware: UN Arms Trade Treaty will regulate individual gun ownership.  The U.N.'s Arms Trade Treaty, which seemed dead last July, is beginning to wrap up negotiations.  The Obama administration is committed to getting it passed.  Secretary of State John Kerry confirmed:  "The United States is steadfast in its commitment to achieve a strong and effective Arms Trade Treaty."  The treaty was resurrected on Nov. 8 — the very day after President Obama's re-election.  Very conveniently, that the Obama administration delayed the U.N. vote in favor of renewing negotiations delayed until the president was no longer constrained by public opinion.

'Bizarre Interpretation of Second Amendment' is Obstacle to UN Gun Grab.  [Scroll down]  There is also the irrefutable fact that there would be no conference right now were it not for the fact that the Obama administration's previously filed objections to the treaty mysteriously disappeared after the president won reelection in November.  Within hours, in fact, of locking up another four years in the White House, President Obama ordered the U.S. diplomats to vote in favor of another round of negotiations and to green light the globalist gun grab.  Ironically, then, without the support of the United States there would be no treaty to debate, but it is the United States that is accused of being the roadblock that is standing in the way of accelerating toward civilian disarmament.

Gun control by the U.N.  Bureaucrats from 150 nations are ramping up efforts to impose gun control through international pact.  Here in the United States, the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty has become the vehicle to drive an agenda that is deeply controversial because once a treaty is ratified by the Senate, it becomes the supreme law of the land.  Last week, Secretary of State John F. Kerry — no friend of the Second Amendment — announced support for the treaty, which calls for international regulations on firearms, including personal firearms as well as military weapons.

Kerry Commits U.S. To U.N. Arms Trade Treaty Gun Grab.  As the world body meets this week to hammer out an agreement to restrict international arms trade, our Secretary of State commits us to pushing a treaty that may also restrict our Second Amendment rights.

Does UN arms trade treaty figure in Obama administration's gun control plans?  One day after President Barack Obama won re-election, his Administration agreed to a new round of international negotiations to revive a United Nations-sponsored treaty regulating the international sale of conventional arms, which critics fear could affect the Constitutionally protected right of U.S. citizens to purchase and bear firearms.

A sneaky way to control guns.  Gun-control advocates and the Obama administration are rushing to complete negotiations in New York on a proposed international agreement called the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.  They hope to finish the drafting within weeks, perhaps having a document ready for signature so that President Obama could press a lame-duck Senate to ratify it after our Nov. 6 elections.  Because these UNATT negotiations had long escaped serious media attention, many Americans are only now learning about their disturbing direction.

U.N. Prepares Arms Trade Treaty That Threatens Second Amendment Rights.  The United Nations is putting the finishing touches on an Arms Trade Treaty that transcends borders and may even trample our Constitutional right to bear arms.  Every indication is that the president will sign it.  Like the New Start and Law of the Sea treaties before it, as well as the Kyoto Protocol and Agenda 21, the Arms Trade Treaty being finalized at the U.N. this month is one of those feel-good, can't-we-all-get-along pieces of parchment whose net effect is to accomplish little except to eat away at American sovereignty and freedom.

Soros Promotes UN Control Over Gun Ownership.  George Soros is financing the fight to give the United Nations control of your guns.  Through his Media Matters organization, Soros is dumping pro-UN gun control propaganda into the mainstream media to coincide with the United Nations Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty being held in New York July 2-27.

Democrats Oppose Obama-U.N. Gun Control Treaty.  Twelve Democratic senators have joined 45 Republicans in a fast growing movement to halt progress on an Obama-backed United Nations effort that could bring international gun control into the United States and slap America's gun owners with severe restrictions.

U.N. Agreement Should Have All Gun Owners Up In Arms.  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.

NRA warns of U.N. gun control.  An American delegation will participate in a controversial United Nations small-arms conference criticized by Second Amendment advocates as a threat to U.S. gun ownership.  The U.N. Small Arms Review Conference will meet in New York City June 26 to July 7 to discuss illegal trafficking in arms, "ineffective national controls" and related issues.

We're From the U.N. and We Want Your Guns.  The U.N. will gather in New York City this July for the 2006 Small Arms Review Conference.  Doesn't the name alone make you nervous?  The U.N. is "reviewing" guns.  If you don't own one, doesn't it make you want to go out and buy one just so you can be ready for whatever Kofi's got planned?

Congressmen urge the UN to trample the US Constitution.  Today [7/2/2012] begins the most important 26-day period for our Second Amendment freedoms in recent history.  That's because today, representatives from many of the world's socialist, tyrannical and dictatorial regimes will gather at United Nations headquarters in New York for a month-long meeting, in which they'll put the finishing touches on an international Arms Trade Treaty that could seriously restrict your freedom to own, purchase and carry a firearm.

Obama's Second Term Regulations That Will Destroy America.  Just hours after President Obama was re-elected, the U.S. backed a U.N. call to renew debate over a draft Arms Trade Treaty (ATT).  Even many U.N. delegates and gun control activists believe this process was put on hold due to presidential campaign concerns.  While ATT is represented as a means to regulate only government-to-government transfers and direct sales by manufacturers to governments, it is broadly perceived by skeptics as a strategy for those who oppose Second Amendment rights to ultimately achieve their goal of prohibiting private firearms ownership through vague, innocuous language without media attention.

NRA warns of U.N. gun control.  An American delegation will participate in a controversial United Nations small-arms conference criticized by Second Amendment advocates as a threat to U.S. gun ownership.  The U.N. Small Arms Review Conference will meet in New York City June 26 to July 7 to discuss illegal trafficking in arms, "ineffective national controls" and related issues.

We're From the U.N. and We Want Your Guns.  The U.N. will gather in New York City this July for the 2006 Small Arms Review Conference.  Doesn't the name alone make you nervous?  The U.N. is "reviewing" guns.  If you don't own one, doesn't it make you want to go out and buy one just so you can be ready for whatever Kofi's got planned?

Standing up to the U.N. on guns:  Conservatives upset with the Bush administration's performance in many areas should be more than pleased with the president's continuing willingness to do whatever is required to defend and protect Second Amendment rights.

Day one of the UN gun ban summit.  They've gathered in New York City, the best and brightest minds in the global gun ban movement.  Oh, they don't want you to think for a second that they're actually interested in your guns.  Kofi Annan as much as said so yesterday, when he told the attendees of the Small Arms Review Conference, "This Review Conference is not negotiating a 'global gun ban', nor do we wish to deny law-abiding citizens their right to bear arms in accordance with their national laws." … It's too bad for Kofi that many of the countries attending the summit didn't get his memo.

Day four at the UN gun ban conference.  It seems to be getting quiet at the United Nations. Oh, the delegates are still speaking, but on Thursday [6/29/2006] much of the discussion moved behind closed doors.  It's funny, actually.  Every anti-gun delegate or activist talks about the need for "transparency" in firearms ownership, but those running the gun summit don't seem that interested in transparency for what they're doing.

Million Moms Morph Into Billion Moms for U.N. Assault on Gun Rights:  Where does a rights-hating organization go when it has collapsed in disgrace in its own country?  If it's the Million Mom March, dedicated to destroying the right to bear arms, it goes to the United Nations.  It goes global and becomes the Billion Mom March.

Gunning for your gun rights:  It sounds like a fairly benign gathering, this United Nations conference on (ahem) "the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons in all its aspects."  Searching for ways to curb the sale of arms to groups that provoke global instability?  Great.  Trying to keep the export of illegal guns under control?  Fine.  If it stops there -- if the meeting goes no further than figuring out how best to mark guns to trace their ownership, to record what weapons enter and leave countries -- it will be time well spent by the United Nations.  But some mischief-makers lie in wait.

U.S. Delegates May Be Selling Out America at U.N. Anti-gun Conference:  U.S. delegates to the United Nations small arms conference are failing to provide firm support for Undersecretary of State John Bolton's principled position against global gun control.  Instead, according to observer sources at the U.N., the U.S. delegation is looking for compromise language with the enemies of freedom.

Role of the UN:  Globalism is out of control and it's far passed time for the United States to secede from the United Nations in its present form unless we intend to ultimately surrender our national sovereignty and be ruled by an omnipotent world government.

U.N.'s Real Gun Agenda Emerges:  The official name of the meeting taking place at the U.N. General Assembly this week and next is the "United Nations Conference on the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All Its Aspects."  The portentous-sounding phrase "illicit trade in small arms and light weapons" is worth repeating, because the conference speakers themselves keep endlessly repeating it, word for word like a mystical mantra, along with impassioned calls for the worldwide elimination of small arms and light weapons.  Spoken so often, the words begin to have an almost hypnotic effect.  But what do they really mean?  What is this conference really after?

Gun Control Debate Goes Global:  A two-week conference on illicit small-arms trading begins Monday at the United Nations.  Gun control advocates want to impose global restrictions on the small arms trade, while supporters of gun rights say the U.N. has no business trampling on the freedoms of individual nations.

U.N. Approves Anti-gun Treaty However, Gun Owners of America isn't surprised at the U.N. action, according to spokesman Erich Pratt.  "Anywhere you look, gun control has failed to cut crime," Pratt said.  "But one thing that gun control has been effective at," Pratt said, "is registering law-abiding gun owners, and that seems to be what this treaty is aimed at encouraging governments to do is to register gun owners and being able to track law abiding gun owners," he said.

The West is being systematically disarmed.

Gun Grab Revival:  Surging firearms sales after 9-11 briefly disarmed gun control efforts, but anti-gun lobbyists are now exploiting fears of terrorism to renew their attacks on the Second Amendment.

Disarmament by "Consensus":  The recent UN small arms conference was not the death knell of the Second Amendment.  It was, however, another step on the road to a disarmed, UN-dominated world.

Disarmament's False Prophecy:  For 40 years, arms control agreements, under a false vision of peace, have been used to transfer military power to the United Nations.

U.N. Targets American Gun Owners:  This is about overriding national sovereignty regarding firearms.

U.N. Wants Global Gun Ban

Global Gun Grab It's open season on the right to keep and bear arms as the UN gears up for international gun controls.

Civilian Disarmament The United Nations, in its quest for global domination, is stepping up its efforts to disarm civilians.  For Americans, this means an all-out assault on the Second Amendment.
