UN Arms Treaty Will Rid Nation of 2nd Amendment

As you read this, the United Nations (U.N.) is convening from March 18-28, to work on the final text for its “Arms Trade Treaty.”  Thankfully, the conference couldn’t come to an agreement last year on the text of the treaty, but that doesn’t mean they won’t this time.  The proposed goal of this treaty, which already has the support of over 100 nations, is to limit the black market deals that go on by illegal arms dealers.  Even if this is the true intention behind the proposed treaty, the language within the treaty allows the U.N. to erase our 2nd Amendment and erodes American Sovereignty. If you do not know already, when the Senate ratifies a treaty, it becomes the law of the land.

The language of the treaty is particularly and purposefully ambiguous.  This especially true in Article 2 Section 1 of the treaty where it applies at a minimum to certain weapons and machines used solely for the purposes of conducting war such as battle tanks and warships.  The very last aspect of Article 1 Section 2 identifies “small arms and light weapons” as applicable to this treaty.  This would, in every backdoor way possible, push the 2nd Amendment into the trash bin of history and further intrude on American Sovereignty.

AFS Survey Rejects Obama’s “Trojan Horse” Treaty of the United Nations

        A national survey of 5,000 supporters of Americans for Sovereignty revealed intense opposition to the ratification of a United Nations Treaty that the Obama Administration has sent to the Senate for ratification The survey indicated that they overwhelmingly opposed the so-called “United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.”  (CRPD).

        Over 90% of respondents oppose the loss of American sovereignty to UN bureaucrats in dealing with matters of disabilities.  The treaty would give oversight authority to a new UN committee over disability legislation in all countries.

        Similarly over 85% of respondents to the survey specifically opposed prospective United Nations mandates that could force homeowners make their home disabled accessible and even having UN bureaucrats determine the number of handicapped parking spaces should be allocated.

        Intense disagreement also arose over the implication in the treaty that UN bureaucrats should have superiority over parents in determining what is in the best interest of the disabled child.  The survey also rejected development of a mechanism in the treaty that would compel the United States to directly fund disability programs in other countries.

        Overall, the survey consistently revealed over 80% opposition to the innocuous sounding treaty and thus it was viewed as a “Trojan horse” treaty that would undermine both American sovereignty and the integrity of the family.

        Americans for Sovereignty is a project of Council for America.  With over 25,000 supporters, it is one of the largest organizations in the United States that focuses its attention on issues affecting continued American sovereignty.

Election Year Survey Rebukes the UN

In an extensive survey, Americans for Sovereignty has tabulated over 8000 responses to questions concerning the United Nations.   The survey of American attitudes towards the United Nations found that the American people remain very hostile to the institution and hope that the newly elected American officials will undertake a critical review of the institution.

       Specifically, nearly unanimous opposition opinion existed that the United Nations should not investigate so-called human rights abuses inside the United States.  This attitude contradicts the Obama Administration that has suggested that Arizona may be violating international human rights standards through its efforts to enforce violations of American immigration laws by illegal aliens.

    Similarly, over 90% of respondents to the survey believed that every candidate for federal office should promise to oppose any UN taxation schemes.  That same 90% insisted that the new Congress needed to vigorously investigate waste, fraud and corruption at the United Nations.

    Given the continued problem of terrorism in the United States, the respondents to the survey believed that newly elected US Government officials should encourage the State Department to restrict activities of so-called diplomats from countries that sponsor or shelter terrorists.

    Grave concern was also expressed in the survey with the International Criminal Court that could violate rights ordinarily enjoyed by American citizens, including American military personnel overseas.  The survey urged the rejection of the treaty that would lead to U.S. membership in the Court.

    Disillusionment was so great in the this latest survey that the respondents supported legislation that mandates the end of United States membership in the United Nations and the expulsion of the United Nations from the United States.

    Americans for Sovereignty is a project of Council for America.  With over 30,000 supporters it is one of the largest organizations in the United States that focuses its attention on issues affecting continued American Sovereignty.
