NRA official: Obama wants to outlaw guns in 2nd term
By Sean Lengell
February 10, 2012, 03:41PM

A top official with the National Rifle Association said Friday that President Obama will move to 'destroy' gun rights and 'erase' the Second Amendment if he is re-elected in November.
While delivering one of the liveliest and best-received speeches at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said the president's low-key approach to gun rights during his first term was 'a 'conspiracy to ensure re-election by lulling gun owners to sleep.'

The Constitution
I am appalled by the lack of understanding you people possess about our democracy. Obama is not a king. He cannot do as he pleases without going through the checks and balances system set forth in the Constitution. Since you people clearly do not understand how our government works, I will explain it to you.

First, lets say Obama wants to do away with the second amendment. He would have to propose a new amendment abolishing gun ownership, which would be called a bill. The bill then goes to the both houses of the legislature who then vote on it and it can only pass with a two-thirds majority in each house. Because this is a bill that involves a new amendment to the Constitution it would have to go to the states for a vote. Let’s say that it passed unanimously in both houses of the legislature and was ratified by the states, then all someone has to do is challenge the bill by means of a lawsuit and then it goes to the judiciary. The judiciary will say whether or not the new bill is constitutional and judging from the Supreme Court’s actions in the past, the bill will be struck down as all bills or laws typically are that violate the second amendment.

How can you people profess to love America when you know absolutely nothing about the democratic systems in place to protect your rights? Stop believing the sensationalized media stories and think for yourself.

What do you think Fast and furious was about it was trying to show why they need to take away our rights of gun ownership. Which backfired on them this time wait if this dictator and chief is re-elected this will be one of his highest priority's.

We all need to get out and vote and get as many of our friends to do the same use your right to vote. It's our biggest gun against tyranny!

checks and balances
mlagroue, did you quote this out of a high school civics textbook? Yes this is how a real democracy is run. The fact is Obama is not trying to run a democracy. He is trying to break this country with taxes and extreme government overspending. His goal is to form socialist government and the only way for him to dictate will be to take our guns away. Will it happen? Who knows? I would hope the men and women in our military are smart enough not to back this man when and if that time comes. But hey, this country elected him once, if they are blind and stupid enough to do it again who knows where the hearts and minds of our goverment soldiers will be. The day we no longer have the right to bear arms is the day this country falls. The bill wont be to take away our rights to own firearms; it will be huge fees when purchasing new and the registration of all firearms which in turn he will use to tax gun owners yearly for each firearm. He will make it so we cant afford to own them anymore. And if you try to hide the guns you already own from registration the wardens and police will be able to sieze the guns and fine or inprison you because you will be labeled a terrorist by the dumb Obama supporting liberals out there. Thinks this all sounds far fetched? Maybe it is but why risk it by letting this Communist that has done nothing to better this country with his first four years have another term?

Yes, Checks and Balances
The fact of the matter is you people are talking about a right guaranteed in Bill of Rights of the Constitution. Obama isn’t the only one running this country and if any bill were to pass restricting gun rights it would have to go through the same procedures as I set forth above. If it does pass and any of you disagree with the said “bill”, then all you have to do is break the newly enacted law and challenge it in the court system. Research past judicial decisions on the Second Amendment and you will consistently find that courts have struck down laws that limit the powers of the Second Amendment as the courts would do if
Obama tried to do the same.

I do not care whether or not you like Obama.That was not the point of my post. All I am saying is use your sense of reason. No president will ever be able to take away the rights endowed to citizens in the Second Amendment; I don’t care if we are talking about Ronald Reagan, FDR, or Richard Nixon. It doesn’t mater. The point of Cajun-Pete’s initial post was to state that Obama is going to take away gun rights and I am saying that it won’t happen, that no president can do that.

Now, if you disagree with what I have said and want to live delusional and misinformed, then my advice to you would be to build a bunker and hide all of your guns because Obama and his socialist army are coming for them.

Well, its also in the Constitution that the gov't can not force you to purchase a service but you Will buy healthcare or pay the gov't a penalty. If you pay any attention to Obama, you will notice that he only uses the word Constitution when he needs it. But when he wants to shove something down your throat, he steps on the Constitution and says that it is stopping him from transforming America.

Pay close attention and 'listen' to him to his words, don't just hear him talk!

not as ignorant as he thinks I am !If he his given
a second term he will probably get to seat two more anti-gun judge's to the Supreme Court and you can kiss your guns good-bye!!! The last time they voted gun owners won by 1 vote.
Reply
Yeah, but.....
Who will enforce a total ban? The real muscle of the government is not the legislative, executive, or judicial branches. Any ban will have to be enforced by federal authorities. Do you think members of local police agencies, military or National Guard will come after you, or desert first?

None of them would follow such an order. In their free time, they are gun-toting republicans like the rest of us; hunting, shooting, etc.

We need to vote him and his cronies out.

Greybark
Bark is correct, The fact is that the next president will likely appoint 2, maybe 3 Justices to the supreme court, our rights to own guns will erode quickly from that point forward. Before this last Supreme court descision, it was illegal to OWN, in your HOUSE, a handgun in D.C. If the cops went in because of a loud noise complaint, they would confiscate your handguns and arrest you. Still think it can't happen? Research gun ownership in England, Scotland, and Ireland. The government requires people to register their AMMO! If they find more ammo than registered, gun ownership rights are revoked! Obama's Cronies believe the right to bear arms is a state right, not individual.

545 Congressmen and President versus 300,000,000 American Citize
Not one to foward or post something like this, however, i felt it was deserving of the circulation.

Charley Reese's final column

COMPLETELY NEUTRAL

Be sure to Read the Poem at the end.

Charley Reese's has been a journalist for 49 years this is his final column for the Orlando Sentinel prior to retirement...

Be sure to read the Tax List at the end.

This is about as clear and easy to understand as it can be. The article below is completely neutral, neither anti-republican or democrat. Charlie Reese, a retired reporter for the Orlando Sentinel, has hit the nail directly on the head, defining clearly who it is that in the final analysis must assume responsibility for the judgments made that impact each one of us every day. It's a short but good read. Worth the time. Worth remembering!

545 vs. 300,000,000 People

-By Charlie Reese

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

You and I don't propose a federal budget. The President does.

You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.

You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.

You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does.

You and I don't control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.

I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes.

Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.

What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits. The President can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.

The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? John Boehner. He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.

It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair.

If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red.

If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it's because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan ....

If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way.

There are no insoluble government problems.

Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like 'the economy,' 'inflation,' or 'politics' that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.

Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.

They, and they alone, have the power.

They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.

Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees...

We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

Charlie Reese is a former columnist of the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper.

What you do with this article now that you have read it... is up to you.

This might be funny if it weren't so true.

Be sure to read all the way to the end:

Tax his land,

Tax his bed,

Tax the table,

At which he's fed.

Tax his tractor,

Tax his mule,

Teach him taxes

That you won't be done

Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers;

Then tax him some more,

Tax him till

He's good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,

Tax his grave,

Tax the sod in

Which he's laid...

Put these words

Upon his tomb,

'Taxes drove me

to my doom...'

Another Opinion
This is just my opinion but I agree whole-heartedly with mlagroue.

If you want to see Obama elected to a 2nd term keep debating the birth certificate issue and spreading propaganda that Obama is going to take all your guns away. Propaganda is propaganda no matter who is spouting it.

If you truely want to get Obama out of office, focus on the facts, what he has done while in office, and what he has failed to do while in office.

As long as the waters are clouded with propaganda, his chances of re-election are greater than 50/50.

Everyone believes that the constitution of The United States will Protect us as it has our forefathers for 200+years.
The NDAA gives the Govt the right to detain any U.S. citizen that The govt. decides is a subversive / terrorist indefenantly w/o evidence or trial.
All it will take to have the biggest Gun grab in history is one event that Obama can use to declare a national State of Emergency, (aka) Martial Law.
Once this happens he will use his power . By the way he no longer has to answer to congress (remember we are under martial law).
He alone can decide that we are a danger to ourselves and country if we are armed. The wording in the bill will allow him to use the military to seize our weapons.
If our military refuses to fight U.S. citizens
(which i think most will do). Guess what else he can do??? Ever hear of NATO?? Yes since we are members of NATO He can bring Foreign troops to our country to enforce anything the U.S. troops won't .
Obama IS NOT DUMB! He knows what he wants and knows How he is going to achieve total control.

Don't Underestimate Obama!
It certainly seems like I've created a firestorm of a debate on the gun issue.

Anyone who doubts Obama's intent and ways of doing away with the US Constitution's 2nd Amendment should review what he has done to date. The 1st Amendment assures the right of free speech, freedom to practice the religion of our choice, etc. Look at what he is doing with his contraception mandate that had most Christian religions in an uproar. This is against the 1st Amendment. Yet, he'd doing it..so far. I'm sure litigation will come out of this.

And, there is absolutely no doubt that if he is re-elected he will most certainly appoint two anti gun activist new Supreme Court Justices. That could be the death knoll.

I could go on and on at the things he has done to date that are totally against the will of the people or downright against the Constitution, and believe me, if re-elected, he will NOT stop here.

I have a few elderly friends who grew up in Germany during the Hitler take over in the 1930’s and they say this is the same exact path that Hitler took during his rise to power. If we don’t kick Obama out of office, we will not recognize our once great Country in 4 more years of his tyrannical presidency.

Like several posters have so clearly said, we MUST show up in HUGE numbers in November and vote this Socialist out of office.......FIRE him!

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has already signed the UN’s “Small Arms Treaty”, which would ban private ownership of all guns. All it needs to go into effect, is for the Democratic controlled Senate to approve it. We will ALL need to lobby our States US Senators to vote AGAINST this if and when it comes up for a vote. We all also need to support the NRA in their fight…….they are a strong lobbying force, they will need our help and support. I know the right to own weapons is imbedded in the US Bill of Rights and the US Constitution. HOWEVER, look at all the other things Barrack Hussein Obama has done in total violation of the US Constitution. What makes you believe he wouldn’t try this also?

Here’s another article that I read today that might interest you on this subject:

DEFEND YOUR RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS FROM THE
U.N. GUN BAN! 2012 TIMETABLE AGREEMENT!
Barack Hussein Obama is working directly with the United Nations to confiscate your guns with their eyes on the prize this fall when everyone else eyes' will be on the Presidential Election….

Under the leadership of Barack Hussein Obama, the United States joined 152 other countries to support potential multilateral treaty that if established would control the international trade of conventional firearms, and that is just one treaty in which Obama and his leftist government allies around the world are out to fully disarm civilians.
In 2009, Obama reversed the position of the United States under George W. Bush's administration, which was AGAINST such the creation of the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty on the grounds that national controls were better (since the U.S. manufactures and controls the exports of roughly 40 percent of the global total of guns anyways). But now, with Barack Hussein Obama leading the charge to disarm America, the UN is on schedule for the conference this fall when they intend to attack American sovereignty and strip us of our right to keep and bear arms. The conference was even strategically planned to take place during the final showdown in our presidential race, which every media outlet with be covering non-stop giving Obama the leeway he needs to give his second term gun-grab a head-start.

exaggerations, but I hear your concern
Good to see the excellent discussions. Hadn't want to post because I don't want any grief, but the discussion has been polite. Hope that continues.

First, I will vote Republican, and if anyone tries to take away our guns, I'm standing right beside General Pete Landry and taking target practice at the liberals.

But, the NRA does this stunt every year, and there is no proof behind their statements even if the Supreme Court went more liberal (God forbid!). Checks and balances still apply even though there are backdoor ways to penalize gun owners. Other have already explained this well in this forum, and Republicans are still a strong force too.

Obama's done plenty enough wrong to dig dirt on him. Let's not promote the exaggerated stuff and scare the undecided voters into voting for him again.

third party
Voting for an independant party or 'third party' candidate is the same as voting democrat. All you will be doing is taking a vote away from the Republican Candidate and in turn helping the Democrat. Look at what Ross Perot did for Clinton. Like it or not your choice will be either the Republican or the Democrat, and seeing as how I am not a member of the newly formed racist organization 'African Americans for Obama'; I will be voting Republican.

Oblivious
If you honestly believe that the government can't take away your guns or anything else for that matter then you are simply blind. Will they come in overnight and snatch them up? No. They will do it just like everything else, little by little. Someone in an earlier post hit the nail on the head when he said Obama will tax guns, ammo, etc until we can't afford them and then start taking them and then abolish the right to own them. It's called step change. Also, the second amendment is not interpreted by everyone the way we interpret it. Some people believe that the 2nd only means that the states can form militia, not that citizens can own firearms. Elect enough liberals and guess what interpretation will be used. Everyday I'm sure a vast majority of us on this site enjoy an ice cold brew after work or on the weekends. Ever heard of prohibition? If they can take that, even for a little while, they can take our guns.

What fascinates me is that liberal activists cry about how that government oppresses them and takes their freedoms and that government is too big, yet they vote for the politician who's main objective is to grow government and seize as much power as possible.

You are obviously stuck in the 'two party paradigm'.

The Republicans are good and the Democrats are bad... Well, I got news for you! THEY ARE BOTH BAD!

They are both part of the problem! Last time I checked the Republicans didn't cut the budget when they had the chance. There's isn't a nickel's worth of difference between their actions. Sure, they may tell you nice things to get your vote, but then the bend you over and ram you just the same once they're elected.

My vote counts, and I'm not giving it to Newt, Romney, Santorum, or Obama because they are all the same. There is no difference in driving off a cliff at 50mph or 100mph, the end result is the same. You can keep voting for the R or the D because they tell you nice things, but I'm voting on substance and record, whether it is 3rd party or 5th party.

Thanks for the help though.

taking guns ?
It's the plan of Obama and his bosses for sure. It's about George Bush Sr's New world order that he spoke about years ago, and Ollie North's Agenda 21 plan. The big question is how do they plan to confiscate them ? If they go around banging doors down, they wont like what part of the guns they grab first. It's past time Americans tell these sik Dik-Tators to get screwed.

Smiley we are both on the same side as im sure you agree. I like Ron Paul, he's got my vote if he were to win the GOP nomination. Do I like Romney? Not so much.

Pretty much if obama wants to take our gun he will. Just look at what hes done so for.....Another thing, everyone says we have a democracy, well we are actually supposed to be a republic.

Look at all the Afican American groups they have...I can go on and on but I'll stop there.....Everyone in America needs to wake up and actually listen to the words this idiot speaks..

More on UN 'Small Arms Treaty'
Obama is attempting to get the UN to do his dirty work in banning guns in the US. Here's another article about the details of the UN Small Arms Treaty, which US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has already signed. However, our US Senate must approve before it would become binding.

Although, as many posters have said, it can never happen? And, again I say, don't put anything past Obama. He is merely the 'surrogate' or puppet for the ultra left wing radicals who despise guns.

'Pete'
================================

Once the UN Gun Ban is passed by the General Assembly of the United Nations it must be ratified by each nation, including the United States. That's where we come in.

As soon as Barack Obama took office and jumped onboard the gun-grabbing bandwagon, the Anti-Arms Treaty was up and running. Because the United States is the largest exporter of weapons in the world, if we are not onboard, the whole effort falls apart and our Second Amendment Right to Bear Arms is safe once again. If we act right now, we can defeat Obama's efforts to CONFISCATE firearms owned by private citizens like YOU.

Secretary Clinton is using all of her political might to push the U.S. Senate to ratify this outrageous treaty designed to register, ban and CONFISCATE YOUR FIREARMS. It is absolutely necessary that you BLAST FAX your U.S. Senators to vote AGAINST ratification of the UN'S 'Small Arms Treaty.' Demand they stand up for America against Obama's gun-grabbing agenda.

Those high on the horse at the UN and in Washington have successfully kept the exact wording of their new scheme to disarm America under wraps. But we are certain the treaty will address the private ownership of firearms. If passed by the UN (and ratified by the U.S. Senate) the UN 'Small Arms Treaty' would FORCE national governments to:

• Make law-abiding citizens jump through even more bureaucratic hoops just to own a firearm legally by enacting tougher licensing requirements;

• Confiscate and destroy all 'unauthorized' firearms owned by non-government entities;

• BAN the trade, sale and private ownership of ALL semi-automatic weapons;

• Create an INTERNATIONAL gun registry, setting the stage for full-scale gun CONFISCATION.

It's not surprising that Obama is letting someone else (the UN in this case) do his dirty work when it comes to disarming America. After all, it is an election year – and Obama wants to win more than he wants almost anything, except for perhaps YOUR GUNS. The U.S. Senate is our final stand against the anti-gunners at every level of government. If we lose this fight, we lose our guns. It is as simple as that.

Grandfather Gets Arrested for Holding Burglar at Gunpoint While Waiting for Police to Arrive
Read this article if you think we're safe with the 2nd Amendment today to protect our right to gun ownership. I hope someone comes to this guy's defense and files a lawsuit against this police department and the State of New Hampshire.

Grandfather Gets Arrested for Holding Burglar at Gunpoint While Waiting for Police to Arrive

A New Hampshire grandfather has been arrested and is facing a possible prison sentence for firing a shot into the ground and holding a burglar at gunpoint until the cops could arrive. Dennis Fleming, 61, came home on Saturday night to discover that his home had been robbed. He saw the burglar, Joseph Hebert, 27, climbing out of his neighbor’s window. Mr. Fleming yelled, “Freeze!” and fired a shot into the ground before holding the crook at gunpoint.

When the police arrived, they arrested Hebert, but instead of a big old “thank you” and a slap on the back for Fleming, he got arrested too, on a charge of reckless conduct.

U.N. GUN BAN ONE STEP CLOSER!
Yet Another Article on the UN's attempt to ban guns with it's 'Small Arms Treaty'. I'll try to keep everyone abreast of this as I learn more.

'Pete'
==============================

U.N. GUN BAN ONE STEP CLOSER!
Americans' Right To Arms is a Project of Patriot PAC

With the full-backing of the Obama administration, the United Nations is one step closer to controlling your guns announcing that the final wording for the ANTI-GUN Small Arms Treaty will be presented this July!

The United Nations Small Arms Treaty is a 'peace charade' signed onto by the Obama administration as part of his anti-Second Amendment gun-grabbing agenda. And right now, the United Nations and Barack Obama are collaborating on a worldwide conspiracy to register, ban, and CONFISCATE YOUR GUNS!

You and I must do everything in our power to STOP this Obama scam from becoming a reality!
We've obtained a draft of the treaty wording … and it is conniving at its finest. The United Nations, with the full support of the Obama administration wants a 'COMPREHENSIVE' arms trade treaty and they're hoping to pass it under the banner of making the world a safer place…

Here is the exact wording of the UN Arms Trade Treaty, thus far:
'It must require States (countries – like the United States!) to assess the risk that serious violations of international humanitarian law and human rights law may be committed with the weapons being transferred. This may very well take away your individual rights to buy or sell a gun!
Secondly, it must include within its scope all conventional weapons, including small arms.
The treaty must also include ammunition within its scope.
It must ensure that there are no loopholes by covering all types of transfers, including activities such as transit, trans-shipment, as well as loans and leases.'
Together, you and I MUST hold every elected official on Capitol Hill accountable for ensuring this abominable treaty IS NEVER RATIFIED by the United States – We MUST counter the anti-gun pressure taking over Capitol Hill, so right here and right now we need to get to work to fight the UN gun-grab!
STOP THE ASSAULT ON OUR SECOND AMENDMENT BY THE UN!

Obama is keeping mum while on the campaign trail, but behind closed doors he and Hillary are working 'Fast & Furious' with the United Nations to destroy the Second Amendment for good. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced that the Obama administration is working 'hand-in-glove with the United Nations' to pass this sickening gun-grabbing treaty that tramples on our Constitutional guarantee to keep and bear arms.
And don't be fooled by noble pretenses. This drafted treaty has its sights set on using bureaucracy to target ALL conventional weapons and ALL ammunition – it targets free citizens, sports hunters and collectors along with the criminals. Former United Nation's ambassador John Bolton has cautioned gun owners about the Arms Trade Treaty and says the UN 'is trying to act as though this is really just a treaty about international arms trade between nation states, but there's no doubt that the real agenda here is domestic firearms control.'
I know I can count on you to tirelessly fight against the United Nations' Small Arms Treaty, but we have to start fighting back against the anti-gun agenda before it gains more traction in the Left-controlled mainstream media. We must make sure the United Nations will never tell us AMERICAN gun owners what we can and cannot have – even if Barack Obama is more than happy to bow deeply to tyranny, click his heels and hand over our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
The United States is the largest exporter of weapons in the world, if we are not onboard, the whole effort falls apart and our Second Amendment Right to Bear Arms is safe once again. If we act right now, TODAY, we can defeat Obama's efforts to CONFISCATE firearms owned by private citizens like YOU.

Unfortunately, the United States Senate (which ratifies international treaties) is STILL controlled by leftwing zealots intent on disarming America. That's why we need YOU to BLAST FAX EVERY UNITED STATES SENATOR to let them know you OPPOSE the United Nations Small Arms Treaty!

DO NOT LET OBAMA DISARM THE UNITED STATES!
If passed by the UN (and ratified by the U.S. Senate) the UN 'Small Arms Treaty' would FORCE sovereign national governments to:
Make law-abiding citizens jump through even more bureaucratic hoops just to own a firearm legally by enacting tougher licensing requirements;
Confiscate and destroy all 'unauthorized' firearms owned by non-government entities;
BAN the trade, sale and private ownership of ALL semi-automatic weapons;
Create an INTERNATIONAL gun registry, setting the stage for full-scale gun CONFISCATION.
Obama is hiding behind the UN and a noble banner to attack our Constitution and disarm America. The UN Small Arms Treaty is no less than a worldwide takeover of your guns, and it is being directly supported by the Obama administration in order to control YOU and ABOLISH YOUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS!

The goal of this UN Small Arms Treaty is to BAN and SEIZE firearms owned by YOU – a private law-abiding citizen. Judging by this past week's committee at the United Nations, they are right on schedule to begin grabbing your guns by the end of this year.

The Second Amendment guarantees your fundamental right to self protection, and is America's bulwark against tyranny and oppression. It MUST NOT be abridged!
Please, will you fax your Senators to make sure they stand up for your Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms and do not sign this international gun-grabbing treaty?

Gun-grabbers around the globe believe they have it made.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recently announced the Obama Administration will be working hand-in-glove with the UN to pass a new “Small Arms Treaty.”

Disguised as an “International Arms Control Treaty” to fight against “terrorism,” “insurgency” and “international crime syndicates,” the UN Small Arms Treaty is in fact a massive, GLOBAL gun control scheme.

I’m helping lead the fight to defeat this radical treaty in the United States Senate and I want your help.

Please join me by taking a public stand against this outright assault on our national sovereignty by signing the Official Firearms Sovereignty Survey.

Ultimately, the UN Small Arms Treaty is designed to register, ban and CONFISCATE firearms owned by private citizens like YOU.

So far, the gun-grabbers have successfully kept the exact wording of their new scheme under wraps.
If passed by the UN and ratified by the U.S. Senate, the UN Small Arms Treaty would almost certainly FORCE the U.S. to:
*** Enact tougher licensing requirements, making law-abiding Americans cut through even more bureaucratic red tape just to own a firearm legally;
*** CONFISCATE and DESTROY ALL “unauthorized” civilian firearms (all firearms owned by the government are excluded, of course);
*** BAN the trade, sale and private ownership of ALL semi-automatic weapons;
*** Create an INTERNATIONAL gun registry, setting the stage for full-scale gun CONFISCATION.
I'm sure I don't have to tell you that this is NOT a fight we can afford to lose.

Ever since its founding 65 years ago, the United Nations has been hell-bent on bringing the United States to its knees.

The truth is there’s no time to waste.

You and I have to be prepared for this fight to move FAST.

The fact is the last thing the gun-grabbers at the UN and in Washington, D.C. want is for you and me to have time to mobilize gun owners to defeat this radical legislation.

They’ve made that mistake before, and we’ve made them pay, defeating EVERY attempt to ram the UN Small Arms Treaty into law since the mid-1990s.

But now time may not be on our side.

In fact, we’re likely to only have a few weeks to defeat the treaty when they make their move.

And we definitely don’t have a President in the White House who will oppose this treaty.

So our ONE AND ONLY CHANCE to stop the UN Small Arms Treaty is during the ratification process in the U.S. Senate.

As you know, it takes 67 Senate votes to ratify a treaty.

With new pro-gun champions joining me in the Senate, rounding up enough votes to kill this thing should be easy, right?

Unfortunately, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Even with the Republican tidal wave in 2010, there still isn’t a pro-gun majority in the Senate to kill ratification of the treaty.

You know just as well as I do how few Senators are truly “pro-gun.”

Not only that, but many Senators get “queasy” about killing treaties for fear of “embarrassing” the President -- especially with “international prestige” at stake.

They look at ratifying treaties much like approving the President’s Supreme Court nominees.

Remember how many Senators turned their back on us and voted to confirm anti-gun Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor?

A dozen more only voted against Sotomayor after receiving massive grassroots pressure from the folks back home.

So if we’re going to defeat the UN Small Arms Treaty gun owners have to turn the heat up on the U.S. Senate now before it’s too late!

Do you believe the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Second Amendment are the supreme law of the land?

Do you believe any attempt by the United Nations to subvert or supersede your Constitutional rights must be opposed?

If you said “Yes” to these questions, please sign the survey the National Association for Gun Rights has prepared for you.

Your survey will put you squarely on the record AGAINST the UN Small Arms Treaty.
