Here we go: Obama backs UN arms treaty

by American Firearms Review  |  published on November 21, 2012

Earlier today, we blogged that Barack Obama’s second term would be a threat to the Second Amendment. A few hours later, the evidence comes in:

Hours after U.S. President Barack Obama was re-elected, the United States backed a U.N. committee’s call on Wednesday to renew debate over a draft international treaty to regulate the $60 billion global arms trade.

U.N. delegates and gun control activists have complained that negotiations collapsed in July largely because Obama feared attacks from Republican rival Mitt Romney if his administration was seen as supporting the pact, a charge the United States denies.

Senator Rand Paul and the NRA have been fighting this treaty for years. Among other things, it would create an international gun registry and ban the trade and sale of all semi-automatic weapons. And of course, since it’s controlled by the UN, your elected representatives have no say over it once it’s passed.
