Hours After Obama Wins, U.S. Backs New U.N. Arms Treaty That Could Trample Americans Second Amendment Rights…

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist and Patriot.

This is not likely to happen people, please read the constitution.

Any executive order Barry signs or that of any member of the government as in Hillary Clinton, is null and void upon signing as it usurps the Constitution of the United States of America.

Barry keeps effing around he is going to find his bony ass and empty suit going to court.  Perhaps he has forgotten what happened to the last dictator.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

Just a coincidence he waited until after the election, right?

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – Hours after U.S. President Barack Obama was re-elected, the United States backed a U.N. committee’s call on Wednesday to renew debate over a draft international treaty to regulate the $70 billion global conventional arms trade.  Complete non story below.

U.N. delegates and gun control activists have complained that talks collapsed in July largely because Obama feared attacks from Republican rival Mitt Romney if his administration was seen as supporting the pact, a charge Washington denies.

The month-long talks at U.N. headquarters broke off after the United States – along with Russia and other major arms producers – said it had problems with the draft treaty and asked for more time.

But the U.N. General Assembly’s disarmament committee moved quickly after Obama’s win to approve a resolution calling for a new round of talks March 18-28. It passed with 157 votes in favor, none against and 18 abstentions.

U.N. diplomats said the vote had been expected before Tuesday’s U.S. presidential election but was delayed due to Superstorm Sandy, which caused a three-day closure of the United Nations last week.

An official at the U.S. mission said Washington’s objectives have not changed.

“We seek a treaty that contributes to international security by fighting illicit arms trafficking and proliferation, protects the sovereign right of states to conduct legitimate arms trade, and meets the concerns that we have been articulating throughout,” the official said.

“We will not accept any treaty that infringes on the constitutional rights of our citizens to bear arms,” he said.

U.S. officials have acknowledged privately that the treaty under discussion would have no effect on domestic gun sales and ownership because it would apply only to exports.

The main reason the arms trade talks are taking place at all is that the United States – the world’s biggest arms trader accounting for more than 40 percent of global conventional arms transfers – reversed U.S. policy on the issue after Obama was first elected and decided in 2009 to support a treaty.

  1. There you go! It’s already started! I wondered who he was going to blame things on and it is Mitt and the campaign! Gotta love it! I was just sent an email from my old boss who is a man of color. He said that Mitt lost b/c the Republican Party is not tolerant of people of color and it takes a rainbow to make a world. What a joke! If you didn’t vote for him…it’s already starting! Mitt scared him so he couldn’t speak up at the UN. What a bunch of &^%*^&%%&&!
