I had an email this morning from SemperFi 0321. It was a link to this article. I've been hearing about the un small arms treaty for a while now, but this article is dated yesterday.
I would like to think that our congress will refuse to go along with something like this. I would hope they would be smarter than that. I'm not so sure. congress hasn't proven to be real bright lately. And they seem to live in fear of obama and allow him to do whatever he wants.
This is something we need to keep an eye on. I don't think obama would have any problem selling our sovereignty right down the river.
On the upside though, those blue helmets make nice targets...

hillary clinton, US Secretary of State has announced that the Obama administration is working with the United Nations (UN) to approve, through the US Congress, the Small Arms Treaty (SAT).
clinton affirmed that the US would facilitate talks with the UN in the Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty, as long as it “operates under the rules of consensus decision-making. Consensus is needed to ensure the widest possible support for the Treaty and to avoid loopholes in the Treaty that can be exploited by those wishing to export arms irresponsibly.”
This global gun control scheme, concocted by the UN, is called the International Arms Control Treaty (IACT). Disguised as a way to combat terrorism, insurgents and international criminals, this document endeavors to secure that the world’s citizens cannot defend themselves.
The IACT will empower the UN to literally force the US government to:
Enact internationally agreed licensing requirements for Americans.
Confiscate and destroy unauthorized firearms of Americans while allowing the US government to keep theirs.Senator Jerry Moran said in a letter (signed by 44 other senators) to President obama; warning him not to continue his push for ratification of the SAT. Moran wrote:
Ban trade, sale and private ownership of semi-automatic guns.
Create and mandate an international registry to organize an encompassing gun confiscation in America.
Our country’s sovereignty and the Second Amendment rights of American citizens must not be infringed upon by the United Nations. Today, the Senate sends a powerful message to the Obama Administration: an Arms Trade Treaty that does not protect ownership of civilian firearms will fail in the Senate. Our firearm freedoms are not negotiable.
