Blue Christmas: UN Arms Trade Treaty Goes Into Effect Dec. 24th

The United Nations Office of Disarmament Affairs has announced that on Dec. 24th 2014 the UN Arms Trade Treaty will begin it’s enforcement.  To refresh your memory on what the UN Arms Trade Treaty actually does:

“The treaty includes export/import controls that would require officials in an importing country to collect information on the ‘end user’ of a firearm, keep the information for 20 years, and provide the information to the country from which the gun was exported. In other words, if you bought a Beretta shotgun, you would be an ‘end user’ and the U.S. government would have to keep a record of you and notify the Italian government about your purchase. That is gun registration. If the U.S. refuses to implement this data collection on law-abiding American gun owners, other nations might be required to ban the export of firearms to the U.S.”

So what will that mean for the United States once this treaty goes into force?  Well, thanks to the Obama Administration and John Kerry for signing the most worldwide form of gun control and sovereignty invalidating piece of garbage in history, even if the Senate doesn’t ratify it, the effects will still be extensive.

First and foremost, since the US has a thing about liberty (we love it) and by nature disdains the forfeiture of its own sovereignty as well as creating gun registries, we will not ratify and because we won’t bend a knee, the importation of firearms from other countries will all but evaporate.

Small arms from countries that have ratified the treaty include Germany, Italy, Romania and the United Kingdom and as such will be compelled by international treaty to stop importation of their wares to the United States.  Other countries that have signed up and are awaiting ratification include Austria, Belgium, and the Czech Republic; so get ready to say goodbye to your Glocks, Brownings and Czech made AK’s.

Mind you, we’re not just talking about the complete firearms either:

Parties must also regulate export of parts and components that may assemble these conventional arms.

After Christmas, while the conventional model may be to expect a drop in prices, parts for these firearms will undoubtedly go through the roof.

You can thank the Obama administration for this.

This was the “under the radar” methods that Obama was speaking of when he spoke of taking away American’s 2nd Amendment rights.  A strong US President who loved his country and the liberty it entails could have easily, as THE World Leader, squashed this entire treaty long before it became a reality.

How do I know this?  Because the Small Arms Treaty didn’t start under Obama’s reign, it started WAY back in 1997 by the President of Costa Rica.  It languished for ten years until it finally came up for the first time at the United Nations as Resolution 61/89.

153 foreign nations voted for the resolution, 24 abstained and ONE nation stood as the lone vote rejecting the resolution.  Which country was this High Noon’s Will Kane?  You got it…AMERICA.  The Bush administration didn’t side step the issue and abstain, the Bush administration took a stand and said NO.

That ENDED the UN’s plan for global gun control right there and then.  With a lone dissenting voice the United States stopped one of the most dangerous measures the United Nations has ever tried to pass.

And don’t undervalue the impact of the United States in stopping it because after the vote, Algeria indicated that the effort must receive broad-based support from states and be based on the principles of the UN Charter.

Broad based support?  The resolution had 153 signatures and one dissenter.   It’s support was broad based.  What Algeria really meant was that: “this resolution cannot go forward without the United States.”

Which was true, until we elected the gun controller in chief with his rabid obsession of disarming his own people.

This is not conjecture, this is a quantifiable action/reaction delineation.

The DAY, September 25th 2013, after Obama had Kerry sign the treaty, 16 other nations signed with three more nations ratifying it immediately.  Nearly, 20 nations followed Obama’s lead that day.  Three more would sign the following day.

Before the Obama administration signed the treaty only 4 nations in the world ratified it.  Once the world saw that the US was willing to go along with it the dam gave way and countries were falling over themselves to follow suit.

So even when the Senate refuses to ratify the Treaty, because of Obama’s willingness to lead the world instead of his country, the firearms industry will be hurt by this treaty.  Thereby hurting the American gun owning citizen.

Now, you may be saying, we’ll just build them here in the USA.  And we can…or can we?

I direct your attention once again to the following aspect of the treaty:

Parties must also regulate export of parts and components that may assemble these conventional arms.

What actually constitutes a component?  A barrel? Sure.  A stock? Ok.  The steel and wood to make them?  Ahhhhhhh.

What about bullets?  Well, one could say that lead is also a component and can now banned from importation.  Considering that the Obama Administration shut down the last lead smelting plant in America at the end of last year, that could be a very tricky situation for the US.

The US has been shipping manufacturing and textile jobs overseas for so long that we are lacking the capabilities of just picking up and making it ourselves.

Even if we start again, at the very least, prices for firearms and bullets will sky rocket.  The UN Arms Trade Treaty will, in effect, create an embargo designed to make the firearm in America go extinct or cow the government to ratify the treaty.

Not a very nice Christmas present for the 2nd Amendment.  But on the bright side, after this most recent election the country all but assured that the UN treaty will not be ratified here and that is something.

Let this also be a reminder that in 2 years, when we pick a new President, we vote for one who will not only put the welfare of his own people before the whims of foreign states but also will have the backbone and courage to stand alone if needed.

Because frankly, even if Obama wasn’t so gung-ho of an anti-gunner, he is still a coward and would have kow-towed to the world in order to go along to get along and be liked.  Our sovereignty is in jeopardy because our leader has no spine.

Remember that in 2016.

    It is time to call and write to your Congressmen, women and Senators. We must keep the pressure on at all times. Never let up. Our freedoms are being taken away a quarter of an inch at a time. Before you know it all or our freedoms will be gone. Our Dictatorial administration is working to see that you are under total control of the government and you will have no way to change it or protect yourself from it. If you are a lover of Freedom and respect the people who died fighting for us and our Freedom get yourself in the game of protecting the U.S. Constitution. Inform others and make the uninformed informed.

      Sounds to me like it’s already a done deal. If so all the letters and phone calls to Congressional leaders will make NO difference. I’m not seeing any way out of this.

  • Injun Trouble

    Why don’t we invite GLOCK to come to the U.S. and produce their wonderful guns here OR

    Have somebody start up a new factory in the U.S. and produce the guns with the grips slightly

    different. There must be a hundred ways to get the job done.

    Not at MY house it won’t. Not now, not ever. They’ll come for mine and be buried with theirs. Or without should I like them.

  • JeromefromLayton

    Remember, some of this stuff requires a budget [funding] and those bills have to originate in the House. After that, the Senate gets to amend it and then the two houses have to agree on the end product. [A violation of this process is how we got Obamacare, by the way.]
    The Senate is the only body that can ratify a Treaty, confirm appointments, etc.
    Now, make those phone calls, send the letters, etc. Don’t let them forget or get too comfortable.

  • malcolm7172

    The senate never ratified this. It didn’t pass in the Senate the last time they voted on it. Unless I missed something this is a dead deal. It’s time to send this administration a message don’t mess with our guns. England, Germay and France is begging for thie gun rights back. The Muslims are taking over Europe.

      Barack Obama may institute martial law on 24 December 2014 based on his statement that he would initiate what he sees needed without Congress approval. This move would have city police departments in gun-ban states at his disposal with their armored vehicles with 50cal. BMG machineguns and M16 auto selectable 5.56mm, not AR15 semiautomatic, rifles courtesy of the U.S. military to assist in the confiscation raids. Add these to the UN solders who are hidden here and you will have the beginnings of a bloody civil war.

  • Frank W Brown

    Did you know that 46 Senators voted for this POS? Hopefully we retired most of those ASSWIPES!
    They actually voted to remove YOUR sovereignty, how do you like them NOW?

    • Dan Moore

      I have copy of that list and I will post it above.

  • Christopher Silva

    He’s not MY leader. He’s a foreign born dictator whom I have zero respect for.

  • Darrell Murray

    We’ll see. Once these countries start losing their income from American purchases, just how long this B.S. continues. AND they can make and do make ALL these firearms under license here, so guess what? They’ll still be available. As long as we do not ratify this left wing treaty, which with the Senate now under our control, won’t happen and guess what? Future administrations can withdraw Oscummer’s and Kiss ass Kerry’s signed support. Vote Conservative and thrown these Marxists out, fix the country.

    Folks: This needs to go viral. These Senators voted to let the UN take OUR guns. They need to lose their next election. We have been betrayed. http://itmakessenseblog.com/20

    P.S. Dear People, PLEASE KEEP it in mind when you’ll go to the Precinct Polls in November. Vote ALL godless DEMONcrats and RINOs OUT and replace them with the TRUE Conservative and Constitutionalist Tea Partiers. Do NOT donate to Republican Party. Donate to Candidates directly.

      I posted this several times over the last year. I don’t think enough people saw it or didn’t care. Please keep it going. Molon Labe (mo-lone lah-veh)

    Glad that liberal didn’t get the Senator jab.

    This is their final desperate attempt to disarm the population. They need to disarm the population BEFORE the people discover they are being exterminated in mass. By the vaccine viruses (parasites); they are using Ebola outbreak as the cover. The iron poisoned population (~95%) is on schedule for mass extermination NOW. Iron poisoned because viruses require a host with an iron supply to replicate. http://www.unveilingthem.com/IronFacilitatesPathogenGrowth.htm

    This is why they have attempted MANY times to disarm the people of this nation; in preparation for this very hour.

    I wonder why none of this is ever mentioned on mail stream media since they seem to hang on everything Hussein does and says. It looks like Osama Obama actually wants to cause a civil war in our country, and IF any blue helmets show up on our streets he will get it. Also, he is forcing illegals and muslims down our throats I think, in order to force us to defend ourselves from a takeover. He has two more years to push his agenda and I still don’t believe the Repubs have the guts to take him on in direct confrontation. All this is the perfect vehicle for his opportunity to declare Marshall law. I don’t see a good ending here either way. He really is the greatest threat this country has ever seen, and he’s just one insane, evil maniac.
