Obama's International Firearms Plans For You

In our last blog, we referred to a firearms treaty that Barack Obama wants the USA to become entangled with. The western hemisphere treaty, "Inter American Convention Against The Illicit Manufacturing Of And Trafficking In Firearms, Ammunition, Explosives, And Other Related Material," would impose international regulation on firearms, their owners, and the firearms industry in America.

In a broad slash of the international sword, the treaty lumps all firearms, except antiques and their replicas with "any other weapon or destructive device such as any explosive, incendiary or gas bomb, grenade, rocket, rocket launcher, missile, missile system, or mine." This latter category is already in US laws with many covered as "destructive devices. The Missiles and Missile systems provision is a back door entry to interfere with our right to nuclear deterrent and tactical weapons.

The stated purpose of this treaty is "To prevent, combat, and eradicate the illicit manufacturing of and trafficking in firearms, ammunition, explosives, and other related materials. Here's what that treaty covers.

Firearms" means the traditional definition of a firearm. It excludes antiques defined as made before the 20th century and their replicas.

"Related materials" means any component, or replacement part of a firearm, or an accessory which can be attached to a firearm." This means all internal and external parts, and magazines.

"Ammunition" for treaty purposes means the complete round, or its components, including cartridge cases, primers, propellant powder, bullets, or projectiles used in any firearm." Say goodbye to reloading.

The treaty is generous enough to specifically not include fire extinguishers, nail guns, fireworks, signal flares, and paper caps for toy pistols.

It is time to tell your legislators, and Barack Obama that America will not tolerate this type of treaty. We will not willingly submit to international gun law. Our forefathers were wise enough to give us the Second Amendment, and will not trash it for the pleasure of the UN, the western hemisphere, or Barack Obama.
