The New American: “Responding to the Islamist terror attack in Orlando that killed 50 people in a “gun-free zone, the United Nations and its “High Commissioner for Human Rights” claimed again Tuesday that the U.S. government has an “obligation” to implement “robust gun regulation.”
According to UN human-rights chief Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein (shown), the terrorist massacre and other killings are a “direct result” of the U.S. government’s adherence to the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment, which protects the God-given right of Americans to keep and bear arms from infringement.
However, critics ridiculed both the idea and the UN itself, noting, among other facts, that the attack occurred in a “gun-free zone.” In light of the controversial remarks, gun-rights leaders also reiterated calls for the United States to withdraw from the UN and stop funding it with American taxpayer dollars.”
Opinion: In addition to a far left Supreme Court, another reason that a second Clinton presidency would be a catastrophic mistake is the matter of the UN membership and the UN Arms Treaty that was signed by John Kerry shortly after the 2012 election.
In January 2015, William F. Jasper, senior editor at The New American wrote this:
The UN Arms Trade Treaty was written in secret by the Obama/Hillary Clinton State Department, along with Russia, China, France and Britain. Not exactly a lineup of champions of liberty. What does it actually say?
Article 2 defines the conventional arms covered, which include battle tanks, artillery systems, combat aircraft, attack helicopters, warships, missiles — and “small arms and light weapons.”
Article 3 of the treaty places UN prohibitions on “ammunition/munitions fired, launched or delivered by the conventional arms covered under Article 2.”
Article 4 puts all “parts and components” of weapons within the scheme.
Several places in the treaty text, including Article 5, require all countries to “establish and maintain a national control system, including a national control list.” Moreover, it declares, “Each State Party is encouraged to apply the provisions of this Treaty to the broadest range of conventional arms.”
Article 5, Section 4 says each State Party “shall provide its national control list to the Secretariat, which shall make it available to other States Parties.” Which means our federal government will provide the guns and ammo registration list to the UN, which will provide it to Russia, China, Cuba — any and every State Party that wants it.”
Mr. Trump on the other hand has opened the door to re-think all of our foreign entanglements and memberships sending shock waves to one the most corrupt dictator run criminal enterprises in the world.
