U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch just announced America’s partnership with the United Nations to initiate a “global police force.” Her efforts are consistent with other politicians who reject the Second Amendment, not to mention the first several articles of the U.S. Constitution.
In April 2013 the U.N. General Assembly overwhelmingly approved the first international treaty written to regulate a $60 billion global small arms trade.
Only Iran, Syria, and North Korea opposed the treaty.
In opposition to Obama and Kerry, the U.S. Senate voted 53-46 against the United Nations (U.N.) Arms Trade Treaty, in favor of Amendment 139 on March 23, 2013.
Amendment 139’s stated purpose was, “To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (U.N. Resolution 2117).”
The U.N. Arms Treaty’s stated purpose is to prevent “and control the illicit trade of weapons while regulating the international trade of them.” This includes:
- Creating a national gun registry;
- Mandating control of firearms and ammunition;
- Regulating the manufacture of gun parts;
- Limiting stores’ ability to sell firearms.
Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), who introduced the Amendment, argued the U.N. treaty was:
“another attempt by internationalists to limit and infringe upon America’s sovereignty. Such a treaty would require the United States to implement laws as required by the treaty, instead of the national controls that are currently in place. This would also disrupt diplomatic and national security efforts by preventing our government from assisting allies like Taiwan, South Korea, or Israel when they require assistance.”
Two Independents and 44 Democrats– 46 U.S. Senators voted to relinquish American citizens’ constitutional rights– to the United Nations.
The United Nations is not an American ally. It is an international regulatory body not recognized under Constitutional law to have any legal authority over American citizens. By voting to destroy constitutional rights, and by “providing comfort” to alleged enemies and also members of the U.N., these legislators should be tried for treason.
The offending U.S. Senators include:
The United Nations has no constitutional authority to confiscate, register, regulate, or limit American citizen’s constitutional right to bear arms.
The Second Amendment has been consistently defended at all levels of U.S. court jurisdiction. Yet these senators ignored the very law they swore to uphold and protect.
None should remain in office. None should receive a pension or benefits. All should be tried for treason.
