Dick Morris is trying to sell his book here, but he makes some very good points about the states not being able to fight the provisions of an international treaty.
Wayne Lapierre make the perfect point here about the ATT. Even if your wishy washy liberal Senator is going to vote for the fool thing, at least contact him or her and get the civilian guns taken out. This could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back and bring a genuine revolution to the streets of America. No matter which way you lean politically, the ATT is good for nobody.
This coming week the UN is set to meet to agree on an international arms treaty on “small arms,” called the ATT. The treaty was engineered by Hillary Clinton, and is the second shot from the Obama White House to covertly take our 2nd Amendment rights away through indirect means. The first was of course the “Fast & Furious” program that walked guns into Mexico in hopes that our gun freedom, and gun dealers, would be blamed for spilled blood across the border. Thankfully that one failed thanks to a brave whistleblower, but this one is even more serious.
You need to immediately contact your Senators for your state. The Senate, not the House of Representatives, ratifies international treaties. This link gives you the phone numbers and a link to the web form for the Senators themselves:
Conservative commentator Dick Morris has been one of the lead whistleblowers on this issue. He explains on the video we have embedded here that the small arms treaty will carry the force of a constitutional amendment once it is ratified by the Senate and signed by the President. The treaty will prohibit the export of all small arms. You may not feel strongly about this issue, because you have no plan to ever export any of your guns. But like everything else we’ve seen from this administration, this is a platform for a sneaky and underhanded way to register and eventually take away our guns.
The catch of this agreement not to export guns is that the White House, through the BATFE, could decide that in order to prevent guns from being exported, all the guns in the US need to be inventoried and registered, so that the government can make good on their promise not to export. So with no law, no congressional oversight, no debate, no conditions, the Federal Government could simply mandate that all firearms become registered. We know from history, whether it be Nazi Germany, Communist China, Pol Pot’s Cambodia, Stalinist Russia, and every other murderous dictatorship, that the first step in taking weapons is inventorying and registering them.
The NRA has been anything but silent on this issue. The ATT has been a topic of discussion in the NRA print pubs for years, and Wayne Lapierre recently gave a speech at the UN, (video embedded here) commenting on the treaty. His take is that the only way the ATT can become compliant with American gun ownership values and the 2nd Amendment is to completely remove all talk of civilian firearms from the treaty. Until 2009 the US was officially against the ATT. Obama opened the door, and here it is on our doorstep today. You must voice your opinion on this to your Senators today, whether you advise them to not vote for the treaty, or even, if your Senator is a wishy washy liberal, to at least remove the civilian guns from the entire ATT itself.
Whether you are one of those people who answer every call to action regarding the 2nd Amendment or if you have never written or called a representative in your life, the TIME TO STAND UP IS NOW. The government has taken away our freedoms from us by stuffing FDA, EPA, OSHA, and even ridiculous hunting regulations down our throats. The one freedom that guarantees all of our other freedoms is the right to keep and bear arms. The 2nd Amendment shall not be infringed. Please take a tiny part of your day today and let yourself be heard. The future of freedom in America depends on you.
