[quote:Anonymous Coward 45127910:MV8yMzI2MDQ2XzM5Njg0NjY1XzgwMjgzOTMz] [quote:Anonymous Coward 33039683:MV8yMzI2MDQ2XzM5Njg0MDU0X0Q4OEYyNkQ0] [quote:Anonymous Coward 33039683:MV8yMzI2MDQ2XzM5NjgzODcxXzkxN0Q5RDg=] Did anyone actually go and read the ATT? (http://treaties.un.org/doc/Treaties/2013/04/20130410%2012-01%20PM/Ch_XXVI_08.pdf#page=21) I'm in no way a fan of UN or Barry nor defending their positions. I did read the ATT from the UN's website and I have a hard time seeing where this affects or is written to affect the Constitution and rights of American citizens. Everything in the treaty itself appears to be addressing the import/export of conventional arms and munitions. The description of the 'national control system' is followed by 'to regulate the export of' in every statement. It states "For the purposes of this treaty, the activities of the international trade comprise export, import, transit, trans-shipment and brokering hereafter referred to as "transfer"". This doesn't infer "transfer" like FFL transfer. I've read nothing that attempts to regulate a State's (which doesn't mean the individual United States, rather a UN member Party) internal National laws. It cannot regulate nor attempt to regulate a Parties national laws. It's attempting to regulate international weapons trade. I'm not here to argue; I'm 100% pro-gun. I just wanted to do the reading myself and see what the hub-bub was about. I find it hard to glean out of this document where anything that affects American citizens is implied, besides if you were trying to purchase arms from a foreign country. If this is totally wrong, then please tell me. Believe me, I was just as pissed as the next guy reading the headline, but it didn't sound correct once I read it. Don't get me wrong, I don't trust it but I'm not an attorney or the like so I may be missing something. Now the International Small Arms Control Standards is a different ballgame, but the USA isn't listed as a member. http://www.smallarmsstandards.org/partners.html [/quote] just looking for 2nd, 3rd opinion etc... [/quote] Ask the newspaper that Published the article and headline They must know something more REAL than what you are saying in order to admonish the pres like that [/quote]

"The true scope of the anti-firearm crusade of the United Nations, which began more than a dozen years ago, finally is coming into clear focus, as the White House readies to sign the Arms Trade Treaty adopted with U.S. support this past April by the U.N. General Assembly. The reach of this long-term, carefully crafted agenda is truly breathtaking, going far beyond the publicly articulated goals of even the most radical of homegrown gun-control groups..."
