So, What Do You Think?

 We know that no treaty is applicable unless first ratified by congress. We also know how many times the Marxist-in-Chief has ignored and bypassed congress. And we should know that a ratified treaty has more force in law that a Constitutional amendment...


From this global perspective, the UN's International Small Arms Control Standard module then directs, in excruciating detail, the manner in which national governments should restrict access to firearms and ammunition:

Restricting civilian possession of firearms only to those "at the lowest risk of misusing them."
Limiting sales and other transfers of firearms only to commercial transactions at licensed "sales premises" (in other words, no transfers at gun shows).

Only persons licensed and periodically relicensed by the national government could possess firearms.

All firearms must be registered with the national government.

All persons wishing to possess a firearm must pass a rigorous exam administered by the national government.

All firearms must be stored in locked containers separate from ammunition, and "bolted to a heavy or immovable object."

Only a predetermined number of firearms and rounds of ammunition may be possessed by a "properly" licensed civilian.

Magazine capacity is limited to 10 rounds.

Possession of a firearm may only occur after a seven-day waiting period.

No civilian could own or possess a firearm for self-defense unless he first demonstrates a "clear and convincing" need.

Individuals licensed to own firearms "are subject to periodic and random inspections of their homes or businesses".

In order to be granted a license to possess a firearm, an individual must secure recommendations from "responsible members of society," attesting to their "suitability to possess a small arm."

CDC Report Ordered by Obama Supports Pro-Gun Position:

After the Newtown massacre, Obama commanded the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to “research the causes and prevention of gun violence.” The resulting study was completed in June, but you probably never heard about it. Here’s why:

[The] study refuted nearly all the standard anti-gun narrative and instead supported many of the positions taken by gun ownership supporters.

For example, the majority of gun-related deaths between 2000 and 2010 were due to suicide and not criminal violence. In addition, defensive use of guns “is a common occurrence,” according to the study:

Almost all national survey estimates indicate that defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals, with estimates of annual uses ranging from about 500,000 to more than 3 million per year, in the context of about 300,000 violent crimes involving firearms in 2008.

Accidental deaths due to firearms has continued to fall as well, with “the number of unintentional deaths due to firearm-related incidents account[ing] for less than 1 percent of all unintentional fatalities in 2010.”

Furthermore, the key finding the president was no doubt seeking — that more laws would result in less crime — was missing. The study said that “interventions,” such as background checks and restrictions on firearms and increased penalties for illegal gun use, showed “mixed” results, while “turn-in” programs “are ineffective” in reducing crime. The study noted that most criminals obtained their guns in the underground economy — from friends, family members, or gang members — well outside any influence from gun controls on legitimate gun owners.

Also, the report noted that mass shootings such as the one in Newtown, Connecticut, have declined and “account for a very small fraction of all firearm-related deaths.”

The study did find that the USA has a higher firearm-related homicide rate than other countries. However,

As Graham Noble of Guardian Express noted, “If one were to exclude figures for Illinois, California, New Jersey and Washington, DC, the homicide rate in the United States would be in line with any other country.” These areas, of course, are noted for the most restrictive gun laws in the country, thus negating any opportunity for the president to celebrate the report’s findings...

"The current report from the CDC echoed findings the CDC published back in 2003 that showed that suicides were responsible for 58 percent of all firearms-related deaths in 2000. Also noted is that back in 2003 Americans owned an estimated 192 million firearms, while today that number is estimated to be closer to 300 million, an increase of more than 55 percent.

Said the CDC back in 2003, “Evidence was insufficient to determine the effectiveness of any of these laws" (Emphasis added.):

Bans on specified firearms or ammunition,

Restrictions on firearm acquisition,

Waiting periods for firearm acquisition,

Firearm registration and licensing of owners, and

Zero tolerance for firearms in schools.

If the president was looking to the CDC report for support on how to reduce the threat of firearm-related violence through legislation restricting the rights of American citizens, he was sorely disappointed. Perhaps that’s why so few of the media have publicized the report. In fact, the only establishment media even to mention the report was the Washington Post, which criticized it for not answering questions that it wasn't asked to answer!"

I think we should nuke the UN and kill everything east of the rockies, north of Moab and west of Quartzsite.

BTW does anyone have a extra Heroin Suppository?

I have just 7 words to say on the topic.

Just.

Let.

Or, as Anon. said, Molon Labe. Because I'm here to tell you, the U.N. hasn't seen guns used on them yet.

That would be MolonSnorpht LabePoots. And I just bought Another 1000 rnds off PMC X_TAC in 5.56.

And that's Marxist MUSLIM Shtever

I don't care if he's the reborn Joe Stalin, Chairman Mao, Karl Marx, Groucho Marx or Mark Spitz. The United Nations must be insane if they think they can come in here and take the guns.

Do you people think our cops and armed military [many of whom ARE gun people] will just let foreign troops walk in and take over? That's a huge "Aw Bull Shit" in my mind.

UN is add fucked up and impotent as the League of Nations.
