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.

As he signed the document, Kerry called the treaty a “significant step” in addressing illegal gun sales, while claiming it would also protect gun rights.

“This is about keeping weapons out of the hands of terrorists and rogue actors. This is about reducing the risk of international transfers of conventional arms that will be used to carry out the world’s worst crimes. This is about keeping Americans safe and keeping America strong,” he said. “This treaty will not diminish anyone’s freedom. In fact, the treaty recognizes the freedom of both individuals and states to obtain, possess, and use arms for legitimate purposes.” Fox News

This U.S. arms treaty has Barack Hussein Obama grinning like a happy little *one world commie* on Lenin’s birthday.

And here goes John Kerry with his *illegal guns* mantra again. Aren’t ALL guns illegals in the eyes of the Libber left? Personally, I am NOT buying the “This treaty will not diminish anyone’s freedom. In fact, the treaty recognizes the freedom of both individuals and states to obtain, possess, and use arms for legitimate purposes.” Dem. Party line from Kerry or his master, Barack Hussein Obama.

Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., in a letter to President Obama, urged his administration not to take any action to implement the treaty without the consent of the Senate.

He claimed the treaty raises “fundamental issues” concerning “individual rights protected by the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.”

Make NO mistake America; the Second Amendment IS under attack; whether that attack be out in the open or conducted covertly, the attack is real and it is underway.

That is not some willy-nilly rhetoric on the part of gun owners and pro-gun groups. Many feel that the Second Amendment will be done for if the Democrats are given their way and somehow manage to retain control of the U.S. Senate and White House. If the Second Amendment is under attack, does it not make sense that the rest of the Bill of Rights and the entire U.S. Constitution are also in danger?

”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.

I fully expect the NRA and other pro-gun groups to fight this treaty, that is what they are paid to do, that’s the reason so many Americans are paying members of those groups, it’s the U.S. Senate that has me wondering what their move will be.

The majority of Senators have said they will stand against and vote down the U.S. involvement in the U.N Arms Treaty, but, those same Senators can’t seem to get their act together and stop Obamacare.

From Guns Save Lives:

Despite Kerry’s signature, don’t panic just yet. The treaty must also be ratified by the Senate, which is unlikely to happen in the immediate future.

In fact, in March, the Senate voted to keep the US out of the arms treaty by a vote of 53-46.

Treaties require a 2/3 majority vote by the Senate in order to be ratified, however, unlike regular bills, treaties do not have to be reintroduced for each session of Congress. This means the treaty could sit in committee until the Senate is more likely to pass it after future elections. SOURCE

This is a battle that will not end if Democrats remain in power. I say that with NO hesitation or reservation. There’s one other thing I say with NO hesitation, and is meant with ALL sincerity; IF this U.N Arms Treaty ever comes to pass, and for whatever reason, were to be bastardized to a point that it would be used to disarm LAWFUL Americans, remember this: BLUE helmets and berets make excellent targets!

Deo vindice!

  1. Just further proof (as if any were needed) that this administration cares not what the public wants, cares not what Congress wants, cares not what the Constitution says, and cares not what the consequences for the country will be. This is absolutely an attack on guns and just one more chink in the chain that the left hopes will end with the confiscation of firearms. They won’t stop until they achieve that goal.

  2. Working To Keep Freedom says:

    Agreed! This is an attack, a continuing attack, on the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment. The *Libbers* will NOT stop lying, twisting/adjusting the FACTS just to drive home their agenda. The *Libber* Press will assist them in any way, shape or form to push their agenda forward. I trust in the American people, the “We the People” to stand up and continue to fight these fools to the winning end.

    With almost 300 million guns in this country they would have a damned hard time trying to confiscate ALL of them!! *Libbers*, take note – we will fight for our liberties, our America and our Constitution!! There will be no Kings or Dictators here on our land!!

  3. abigail says:

    I’m not surprised kerry signed this treaty. It plays right into the hands of fearless leader and his crusade to disarm everyone (well, except criminals of course and foreign rebels and fast and furious firearms…).
    It’s another chipping away of our national sovereignty. Just wait until the UN decides it is unlawful to defame religion which they have been trying to do for years.
    One little UN slice at a time until the Constitution is completely cut up and done away with. And most will never see it coming.

  4. Hgpsurf says:

    Meanwhile Kerry and Obama are arming the terrorists in Syria…how nice! Obama’s goal is clear and that is to take away our firearms. Well, F#%K him!

  5. dekare says:

    What I find most scary of all, is that obama and his ilk have been testing the waters for 5 years now on what they can and cannot get away with. The left have given up hiding their true marxist intentions, yet no mob has overrun these tyrants and thrown them from office. They have openly attacked our economy, and take from us our 2nd amendment, yet no tar has been warmed or feathers collected.

    At this point, I have to wonder and ask, what will set off the people to regain their senses and take America back? Jefferson has rightfully advised us on the needs of the the tree of liberty, yet it remains unnourished.

    Either we are a very tolerant lot or a week bunch of cowards who deserve the re-education camps.

    We are two wholly different thinking peoples living under one roof. Lincoln stated that a house divided can not stand and forced us all under one roof. However, making us live together has not solved the problem, and here we are, two very opposing ideas trying to function under one rule. How long can harmony last.

    In a recent article I read, it stated that after the civil war, the southerners believed for quite some time that the south would rise again. As history has well shown us, it did not. How long did it take before those southerners gave up hope? How many generations did it take before it was realized that the south lost and the federal govt won, and nothing was going to change that?

    So, I ask the same question, how long before we realize that there is no Reagan waiting to swoop down and save us? That America as I knew it is not going to return. I keep moving my barometer line, saying to myself, “As long as they don’t win the next election” or “As long as obama doesn’t get a second term, all will be okay”, and on and on. I keep bargaining with myself and like obama’s red line in the sand, I too keep moving it farther back. Now, I am telling myself that as long as we take and keep the house and senate in 2014, all will be okay, and as long as we take the presidency back in 2016, we can fix this. But what if we don’t.

    I don’t want to become some aged southerner clinging on to his confederate currency hoping one day it will one day be worth something again. But for now, I can only hope and pray.

    Hope is all we have. We are fighting the good fight, but seem to be out-numbered. I am amazed that We The people keep allowing obama and friends to keep taking our freedoms away and doing nothing. Our guns maybe the only thing keeping obama from declaring himself chancellor for life. And as we all know, the 2nd amendment is the teeth that bare when all other rights are threatened. Take away our teeth, and all other rights are plucked as easily as candy from a baby.

    I now know what the people of europe felt as hitler gained more and more power and nothing was done until it was too late. 20/20 hindsight tells us we should have stopped hitler in the 1930′s. But we did not. Were we were too soft? Were we still willing to have peace at any price? It appears history has taught us nothing. Will history 50 years from now tell us we should have stopped obama at all costs as well, but did nothing? Or will we read history from our govt assigned readings on how obama saved the union and united the world under marxim, where social justice is the way of the world and all praise lenin, stalin and obama.

    We have faced bleak times before and overcame. Can we do it again? This is not the movies. Sometimes evil does triumph over good.

    • dekare, you are spot on!

      I do not see the fire-in-the-belly in the generations of Americans upon whose shoulders lie the responsibility for taking the fight to the political left to save America. It just isn’t there. Many at my age level would step up, without a second thought, but, many, like me, can only bring to bear that pressure with which they press the keys on their keyboards — due to age and ill health. We are already “moving off-stage,” if you will.

      I look at my children, and my grand children, and I genuinely worry about the future they will have because of what we/I failed to do today.

      So. I’ll try to make it as uncomfortable as I can for the opposition. I’ll be sitting right here, in the wee hours tomorrow morning, forming sentences and phases (and pounding them out on the computer) that I HOPE will inspire some to action and others to deep reflection on what we have allowed our country to become. I can only hope the keyboard equals the pen in the contest with the sword.

      Best regards!

    What’s with corker. Asking Obama not to start to implement it? The senate must approve period. But we know he will try. He was making noises about it last week that he was planning something.

  7. wayne says:

    The keyword here is PROGRESSIVES!!!!! The liberals have taken a back seat to progressivism. Glen Beck has been trying to sound the alarm about this for some time now. ……. Google it.

    • BobF says:

      Progressives. Did you know that POW’s during the Korean War who became traitors and aided the North Koreans were known as Progressives? The Progressives were those traitors who embraced socialism and assisted the North Koreans in trying to brainwash other POW’s. Funny though, we never hear of this in our history classes because they just about mirror the Progressives of today.

  8. BobF says:

    This treaty will not diminish anyone’s freedom. In fact, the treaty recognizes the freedom of both individuals and states to obtain, possess, and use arms for legitimate purposes.

    Not diminish my freedom? My freedom according to who? John Kerry, Barrack Obama, or Hillary Clinton? Legitimate purposes? I wonder what Kerry considers legitimate purposes? Is legitimate purposes determined by Massachusetts, NY, or DC law? Maybe legitimate purposes is what is considered legitimate in England where only the wealthy can afford to own firearms? I think we all know what Kerry, Obama, Clinton, and other liberals believe in our freedoms and what is legitimate.

  9. Steve Dennis says:

    I do not trust the Senate at all. While they claim they will not agree to this I wonder what will happen when the arm twisting from Obama begins. And even if they do hold firm we still have to hope that Democrats lose in 2014 or it will be brought up then. It is scary how close this is to becoming policy.

  10. minuteman26 says:

    These leftist clowns now in power keep pushing this country toward a showdown and civil war. This is one more straw on the back of the camel. Do they really think they will fare well when push comes to shove? All in then senate who support this UN treaty need to be defeated during the next election based on this alone. The people governing this Republic today would have been considered traitors in 1960. IMHO a traitor then is a traitor today.

  11. BARR says:

    “My name is Manuel Martinez. Born in Cuba. American Citizen for more than 40 years.

    In 1957 a Revolution … individuals … malicious individuals, masquerading as Democrats, revolutionaries, established a regime … a dictatorial regime … in my nation. Called Communism, Socialism, Stalinism, Marxism, and whatever other named -ism you want to put on it.

    The reason why it was done was to take away the guns from the People.
    That is a God-given Right. It’s not given by anybody. It’s not given by any group. It’s the same thing as freedom, which is a God-given Right. And no one, absolutely no one, has the authority to take it away. To cease to defend the Second Amendment, and my God-given Right of freedom, will cease only with my death.

    I’ve been through it. I’ve been there. You people don’t know what freedom is because you never lost it.”

    U.S. Hero general: Obama following Fidel Castro’s plan!

    ‘The things done in every Marxist insurgency are being done in America today’

    Earlier this year, a former senior Pentagon official who has battled Marxism around the globe released a video warning that Barack Obama is following in the footsteps of Fidel Castro, Joseph Stalin and others who have led communist revolutions in their nations.

    Retired Lt. Gen. William G. “Jerry” Boykin, a decorated former Delta Force commander, U.S. deputy undersecretary of defense for intelligence and Purple Heart recipient, explained in the video a six-step plan used by revolutionaries to bring about Marxism elsewhere and drew parallels to Obama’s actions in the U.S.

    Boykin’s warning resounds eerily today in particular, as the nation is reeling from the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold a massive federal overhaul of health care and on the anniversary of Obama’s pledge to establish a “national civilian security force” – two events Boykin warned were markers of a “Marxist insurgency” in other nations.

    “We hear a lot about Marxism and socialism, and there are those, particularly in the media, who would say that we should ‘tone down our rhetoric’ about socialism because ‘we’re not moving to socialism,’” Boykin states in the video. “Well, The reality is … I’ve studied Marxist insurgency. It was part of my training. And the things I know that have been done in every Marxist insurgency are being done in America today.”

    53 to 46?? Think about that. In actuality, that’s a DAMN CLOSE vote.

    Regarding the Kenyan Mall attack. I wonder how many of the Islamic-Muslim terrorist weapons can be traced back to some CIA arms deal with Syria ,Libya or some other piss-pot country? A middle eastern twist to the near forgotten, Fast and Furious.

    I don’t care what they call themselves, al-Shabab, al-Qaeda, al-CIAda, Muzzie Brotherhood, Hezbollah, Mujahideen, PLO, or several dozen more Islamic thug organizations, their goal are the same. Kill all the infidels. And Barack Hussein Obama is doing what ever he can to help them do it..

    I find it ironic BO is arming Islamic terrorists bent on killing everyone of us and doing his best to disarm all Americans so we cant stop them from doing it…Makes me think without a doubt hes one of them. How the F**K did he get elected in the first place?

  14. Oh well…
