Merry Christmas: UN Declares Arms Trade Treaty To Go Into Effect Dec. 24

On its official website, the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs (yes, that’s really a thing and yes, it is housed right here in the United States) announced that the UN’s Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) “will enter into force on 24 December 2014.”

Merry Christmas!

It is ironical that on the day before the world’s 2.18 billion Christians commemorate the coming of Jesus Christ to the Earth, the United Nations will officially put into motion a plan to deny them of a right given to them by the very God whose birth they celebrate.

For those unfamiliar with the text of the UN’s Arms Trade Treaty, here’s a brief sketch of the most noxious provisions:

• Article 2 of the treaty defines the scope of the treaty’s prohibitions. The right to own, buy, sell, trade, or transfer all means of armed resistance, including handguns, is denied to civilians by this section of the Arms Trade Treaty.

• Article 3 places the “ammunition/munitions fired, launched or delivered by the conventional arms covered under Article 2” within the scope of the treaty’s prohibitions, as well.

• Article 4 rounds out the regulations, also placing all “parts and components” of weapons within the scheme.

• Perhaps the most immediate threat to the rights of gun owners in the Arms Trade Treaty is found in Article 5. Under the title of “General Implementation,” Article 5 mandates that all countries participating in the treaty “shall establish and maintain a national control system, including a national control list.” This list should “apply the provisions of this Treaty to the broadest range of conventional arms.”

• Article 12 adds to the record-keeping requirement, mandating that the list include “the quantity, value, model/type, authorized international transfers of conventional arms,” as well as the identity of the “end users” of these items.

• Finally, the agreement demands that national governments take “appropriate measures” to enforce the terms of the treaty, including civilian disarmament. If these countries can’t get this done on their own, however, Article 16 provides for UN assistance, specifically including help with the enforcement of “stockpile management, disarmament, demobilization and reintegration programmes.” In fact, a “voluntary trust fund” will be established to assist those countries that need help from UN peacekeepers or other regional forces to disarm their citizens.

Arguably, the Arms Trade Treaty would become the law of the United States if the Senate were to ratify the treaty.

While that is the process that the Constitution establishes for the implementation of treaties, fundamental principles of construction and constitutional law dictate that no treaty that violates the Constitution can become the supreme law of the land. In the case of the UN’s Arms Trade Treaty, there is no doubt that regardless of presidential signatures or congressional consent, this treaty cannot pass constitutional muster and therefore will never be the valid law of the land.

  1. I just read an article a day or two ago about a vote our Congresspersons took on this UN bill. Out of 100, 54 voted not to sign on to the UN Resolution 2117. However, 46 senators did vote to give our second Ammendment away to a foreign power (the UN). I received the article from THERIGHTTOBEAR.COM and the article is entitled in part “Americans Just Dodged a Bullet…”. All 46 of the senators are named. They are all democrats, every one of them. They all need to be voted out for starters. If I had my druthers, they would be charged with treason.

  2. Isn’t it a nice thing for all of us to be thankful for on Dec. 24, that our legitimate ogvernment is the US Constitution and that ALL TREATIES that are made with the USA MUST be in Pursuance thereof the US Constitution to be valid?

    I, for one, am thankful for that.

    Federal gun control was non existent until the National Firearms Act passed in 1934 because it goes against the Bill of Rights, the people’s natural rights protected from those who serve within our governments by the US Constitution.

    General Douglas MacArthur: “No man is entitled to the blessings of freedom unless he be vigilant in its preservation.”

    Alexander Hamilton: “The only constitutional exception to the power of making treaties is, that it shall not change the Constitution… On natural principles, a treaty, which should manifestly betray or sacrifice primary interests of the state, would be null.”

    Alexander Hamilton: “… a treaty cannot be made which alters the Constitution or which infringes any express exceptions to the power of the Constitution of the United States.”

    Alexander Hamilton, concerning the supremacy clause The Federalist Papers, 33: “It will not, I presume, have escaped observation that it expressly confines the supremacy to laws made pursuant to the Constitution.”

    Alexander Hamilton: “There is no position which depends on clearer principles that that every act of a delegated authority, contrary to the commission under which it is exercised, is void. No legislative act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid.”

    John Adams, 2nd US President: “You have rights antecedent to all earthly governments; rights that cannot be repealed or restrained by human laws; rights derived from the Great Legislator of the Universe” 

    Training Manual No. 2000-25 published by the War Department, Manual No. 2000-25 says in Section IX Lesson 9.
    DEMOCRACY: A government of the masses.
    Authority derived through mass meeting or any other form of “direct” expression.
    Results in mobocracy.
    Attitude toward property is communistic–negating property rights.
    Attitude toward law is that the will of the majority shall regulate, whether is be based upon deliberation or governed by passion, prejudice, and impulse, without restraint or regard to consequences.
    Results in demagogism, license, agitation, discontent, anarchy.

    REPUBLIC: Authority is derived through the election by the people of public officials best fitted to represent them.
    Attitude toward property is respect for laws and individual rights, and a sensible economic procedure.
    Attitude toward law is the administration of justice in accord with fixed principles and established evidence, with a strict regard to consequences.
    A greater number of citizens and extent of territory may be brought within its compass.
    Avoids the dangerous extreme of either tyranny or mobocracy.
    Results in statesmanship, liberty, reason, justice, contentment, and progress.

  3. Get u.S. out!

    The united States of America is not spelled United Nations. And “united” in the Declaration of Independence is spelled with a lower case “u”. But then maybe Thomas Jefferson didn’t know how to spell.

  4. Oh, don’t forget anyone who serves within our US governments who sign, agree with, try to shove this down our throats are OPENLY *terrorists against and **traitors to the USA and her people (along with a bunch of other crimes – criminal and civil).

    * 28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.

  5. It is void in this nation, and if they think we will role over as Austria did they will quickly be mistaken. Lead will fly, and blood will flow. And they will quickly discover that it was a bad idea and that they should stop, but by then it will be to late.

  6. When our firearms and our GOD given right to have and bear them are outlawed, we, the People, will be outlaws in that day.

    MOLON LABE, TRAITORS AND GLOBALISTS!!!

  7. COME AND TAKE THEM!!!! I shall take NOT one step back…. Not on my watch!!!
    It is time to stand UNITED OATH KEEPERS. Prepare… This has the potential of being a complete and total disaster. If they are going to try this. I would think it would be before the new senators, reps. can be sworn in.
    This is a great big RED FLAG with a huge commie, symbol on it.

  8. Okay, my take here. Look at a view of any major city in the US with its outlying subdivisions and housing developments. NO! way can they get “us” all at once, never can they get “us” in total. If prepared, YES! some, okay many will fall, BUT we will have the numbers to resist.

    Critical to our overcoming this BS is Communications. Do not depend on Cell, Land Line, TV Radio. There must be in place a network to allow an alert. If this network is not now in place and working, then place your guns and ammo in the street for collection as it will be a total Boondoggle and we shall not have the ability to resist and support the Constitution.

    It is logicality impossible for them to hit every home, enclave, storage location at one time. If not prepared, surrender, plain and simple.

    Talk, Macho Talk and total Vain self serving I want to be heard Posts to any Forum does not allow for survival. Ready or not it may be very close, talk all you want, boast as you feel the need, but if you are not ready, what a total waste of humanity……

  9. @Jeff you bets ya, get us out of the U.N. the J. Birch signs used to say along the sides of the hiwyas. I asked my dad what they meant, (back in the early 60’s) and he would tell me never mind just a bunch of kooks. Sorry dad. Ya, we need to tell the U.N. to, get the heck out of our country, lock and load, I am sick of the talk, though I am old and busted up for my God and my country.

  10. Come and get some a man must know his limitations I guess you will have to find out about yours Molon Labe
