Is the UN's Small Arms Treaty a Threat to the Second Amendment? - 7

Fears that the proposed United Nation's "Small Arms Treaty" will endanger Americans' Second Amendment rights have been dismissed by many -- including some gun-rights advocacy groups -- as an irrelevant distraction in the ongoing civil rights struggle to ensure local, state, and federal government in America uphold the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

But when Forbes' magazine writer Larry Bell says in a recent blog that the UN treaty does, in fact, target “our Constitutional right for law-abiding citizens to own and bear arms," maybe it's time to be concerned.

According to Bell, the treaty, if ratified by the U.S. Senate, would force the United States to do the following:
               
• Enact tougher licensing requirements, creating additional bureaucratic red tape for legal firearms ownership.
               
• Confiscate and destroy all “unauthorized” civilian firearms (exempting those owned by our government, of course).
               
• Ban the trade, sale and private ownership of all semi-automatic weapons (any that have magazines even though they still operate in the same one trigger pull — one single “bang” manner as revolvers, a simple fact the anti-gun media never seem to grasp).
               
• Create an international gun registry, clearly setting the stage for full-scale gun confiscation.

The flip side of the coin is after recognizing Croatia's independence Germany shipped them all the arms they inherited from East Germany. This allowed the Croatian Ustashe government to arm militias who went and ethnically cleansed the minority Serb population in the Krajina region of Croatia from 1991 to 1995.

I've said we need to pull out of the UN for years. Because one of their main goals is to disarm all private ownership of guns so it's easier for them to invade and force their agenda on people.

It’s appalling to think that the U.N. could try and control THIS country’s right to bear arms. Give me a break!! Who does the U.N. call all the time when things happen around the planet, the US!! They’ll have to pry them out of my cold dead fingers! I say NO!!

That highly effective organization that accomplishes so much and does so much good?
If that collective bunch of idiots, morons and scofflaws ever could get it together, I'd be worried. After the blasting that Defense Secretary Gates gave them recently, it is really apparent what a talking head organization they are.
After all, they have to come get them don't they?

It is and has been for a number of years under similar UN proposals. This would be a catastrophic change in our constitutional rights.

If they pass that then everyone that voted for it should be arrested and prosecuted for treason. This country wouldn't be here if not for our general public gun ownership.
