Obviously, the United Nations, from its very inception, has been one of the world's most ardent gun control proponents. As anyone who has ever driven by the U.N. building in New York City knows, a huge statue of an American-made revolver with its barrel twisted in the shape of a pretzel greets every visitor. The CIFTA treaty is one of the U.N.'s pet projects in order to achieve this long-held ambition.
Chuck Baldwin writes an excellent column on the international treaty (CIFTA) signed by Obama, who blames America's armed populace for the violence in the 3rd-world country to our South. People always hear me talk about "tipping points" when they ask my opinions about the potential for revolts and civil unrest. I see two major tipping points: massive inflation and gun control. There are still enough proud American patriots around that such a thing as Baldwin describes cannot happen without violent resistance on the part of Americans who have had enough of the Obama administration's plans for enslaving them in service to the state and its partnered elites.
...Should the Senate ratify CIFTA, Americans who reload ammunition would be required to get a license from the government, and factory guns and ammunition would be priced almost out of existence due to governmental requirements to "mark" each one manufactured. Even the simple act of adding an after-market piece of equipment to a firearm, such as a scope or bipod, or reassembling a gun after cleaning it could fall into the category of "illicit manufacturing" of firearms and require government license and oversight.
In addition, CIFTA would authorize the U.S. federal government (and open the door to international entities) to supervise and regulate virtually the entire American firearms industry. Making matters worse is the fact that, as a treaty, this Act does not have to be passed by both houses of Congress, nor is it subject to judicial oversight. All Obama needs to do in order to enact this unconstitutional and egregious form of gun control is convince a Democratic-controlled Senate to pass it.
As to H.R. 45, before you think Baldwin is full of sensationalist poop, read the bill's language. Especially read under "SEC. 305. CHILD ACCESS PREVENTION" and "SEC. 501. DUTIES OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL." Do you wonder why the government is preparing for mass rebellion?
