Dear Friends of Liberty,
Recently, according to an NRA news release, Hilary Clinton mentioned the Obama administration’s intention to negotiate a new small arms treaty with the UN. In late October of this year, the U.S. joined a nearly unanimous 153-1 U.N. vote to adopt a resolution setting out a timetable on the proposed Arms Trade Treaty, including a U.N. conference to produce a final accord in 2012.
The proposed Small Arms Treaty will make it more difficult for Americans to legally buy firearms. The Treaty will do that by creating higher financial costs and complicated bureaucratic licensing processes. The Treaty will also create an international gun registry scheme that will eventually ban guns nationwide.
If Obama meets UN expectations to adopt the Small Arms Treaty for domestic and international considerations, Obama will be violating our. The UN Treaty requires that the US government confiscate guns from law-abiding Americans—something Obama wants.
That is extremely wrong since the Second Amendment is justified by our natural right of self-defense. Since guns help us implement that right, the second amendment is just and must not be violated—not by our government nor by the UN.
Furthermore, the Founding Fathers viewed our Bill of Rights as representing “natural rights.” That is, rights we have by nature which exist prior to, or independently of, the existence of government. Therefore, a government can not justifiably “give” or “take away” our rights, including our Second Amendment right. If the Obama administration signs the Small Arms Treaty and submits to UN rule, the stipulation becomes wrongfully nullified.
Moreover, our Founding Fathers fought to make us Independent from rule by a foreign power. Whereas it was King George’s dictatorship during the 1700s, it is now the UN. America’s current administration must respect this tradition of Independence and keep America free from unconstitutional influence –let alone conquest—by foreign institutions and nations.
