The U.N. Small Arms Treaty Passed Yesterday

while the US media keep pointing to fluff, and engage in distraction. 

They're coming for your firearms, but hey, what about Kate Middleton photographed topless, and Romney's video?  Look! Look! Over there!

I had heard something about this a couple days ago, but the details weren't clear and it was from a conspiracy site that I was far from sure about believing.

They will keep trying till they get it.

Matt, I fully expect that the current resident of the White House will adopt the Treaty by executive order, and his willing minions won't care that it wasn't ratified as required by law.

Thats what I am expecting as thats what he's doing on SOPA (internet crackdown)

Concluding its two-week session today, the second United Nations conference to review the 2001 Programme of Action on trafficking in small arms and light weapons adopted a consensus outcome document that highlighted the international community’s renewed commitment to preventing, combating and eradicating the illicit trade.

Looks like trouble to me..

gfa, read the text of the UN's article in the link provided by maddmedic, above. They've effectively adopted the measure, and agreed to try to implement it world-wide by 2018.

Um, well. No. And add to that "Bugger off".

Oh joy...

Rev. Paul said...

PH, absolutely.

NFO ...yeah. What you said.

Jenny said...

wait.... what exactly does this mean? What does it mean for the "UN to pass it" if it's not gone to the Senate for approval?

Rev. Paul said...

Jenny, it means that the U.N. is now recommending that all its member nations adopt the measure ... and that Obama will probably bypass Congress and adopt it via executive order, even though that's not a legal venue. Those niceties don't seem to slow anyone down, these days.
