Obama Set to Sign UN Small Arms Treaty

On June 3, President Barack Obama will sign the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT).
The ATT passed in the U.N. General Assembly by a vote of 153-4 on April 2.
This treaty is ostensibly aimed at putting an end to gun trafficking across international boundaries, and both Breitbart News and the NRA have argued that it will eventually require an international gun registry in order to be enforceable.
The ATT also provides the executive branch of our government with broad powers for controlling which guns do and don’t come into the country, and includes ambiguous language that a gun-control-friendly administration can use to its advantage.
Even though Obama will sign this treaty, it is not enforceable in the U.S. until the Senate ratifies it by a two-thirds majority.
For the time being, Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) has pushed through an amendment opposing the treaty. However, Obama’s signature will open the door for the Senate to reconsider a resolution of ratification at a future date.

    If he does, he should be summarily executed for selling out the Constitution and our nation … that would make him guilty of High Treason.

    None of it is permanenent. It can all be reversed at a future point. Someday Obama will die. Nobody lives forever. One thing that is impossible is to reverse history so unfortunately history will be written showing we had a foreign national as our king for 8 years.

    My two Senators had better not vote to ratify it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Obama does want it because he is a Marxist

  • Robert S Moulds

    Barack Obama intentions maybe to save lives but does he think criminals, rogue nations and terrorist will honor the UN treaty. If he does he is ignoring recent history such as North Korean nuclear weapons or Iranian jet fighter planes and small arms.

      Do you really think he has good intentions? Hello! Wake the @$#@! Up!

  • jenniewalsh

    Obama is the worst enemy of the American people, con man and racketeer in chief.

      obamination believes in the Quran because he’s a Muslim PIG but, he’s also a puppet to the Billionaires agenda of world domination (Agenda 21) and our Constitution and especially our 2nd Amendment is standing in their way.
      The UN is a criminal organization as is the FEDeral Reserve!
      “We the People” must NEVER give-in to these Tyrants!
      “We the People” must Fight to the death if necessary to keep our Liberty and Freedom and that means we must NEVER let them take away our Constitution and our Bill of Rights.
      I’ll Die on my Feet “Fighting these Criminals, before I’ll EVER Live as a Coward on my Knees!

  • This is but another reason why we had better be looking somewhere else for our authority to bear arms. Think about it: The Amendment that contains the language “shall not be infringed” is the most infringed, licensed, and limited amendment of the
    the entire twenty seven.

    So what’s the answer? Listen to “The Second Amendment: A Knife in a Gunfight” at

    At the same location, you’ll find a radio interview Larry Pratt (Executive Director of Gun Owners of American) conducted with me on the same subject. I think you’ll find Mr. Pratt’s remarks especially interesting.

    If Obama signs the UN’s ATT it will prove that he’s against the U.S. and our Constitution which he is swore the preserve, protect and defend! That makes him a TRAITOR in my book!

  • TexRancher

    Another Treasonous act by this unvetted president! Republicans had better not ever let this happen again! McCain was challenged, why wasn’t Obama?
    Obama should be prosecuted for selling out the Constitution that he swore to Preserve, Protect and Defend! And it was “So help me God, not so help me Allah…
    As an American, I refuse to answer to any foreign agency on U.S. soil. Obama’s executive orders have no authority over me as I am not a government employee or in the military.
    Besides, I have a valid Birth Certificate, Selective Service Card and Social Security Card and can pass an E-VERIFY check.. All of which Obama fails!
