Washington, DC –-(Ammoland.com)- When you’re dealing with an adversary who hates the 2nd Amendment as much as Barack Obama, you have to fight attacks coming from several different directions.
We know we’ve thrown a lot at you lately. But there’s one other issue we’d like to bring to your attention.
As you know, the Obama administration recently signed the virulently anti-gun UN Arms Trade Treaty (ATT).
Although purporting to regulate international trade in arms, the treaty empowers anti-gun administrations (such as Barack Obama’s) to institute internal gun control, including gun bans, gun registration, and more. In fact, the drafters of the treaty made no secret of their goal of imposing measures such as microstamping on countries like the United States.
GOA’s legislative counsel has done a word-by-word analysis of the treaty, which can be seen here. If left unchecked, the treaty language will give rise a wide ranging series of gun control restrictions, as mentioned above.
Plus, it is entirely possible that, under the Supreme Court cases of Missouri v. Holland and Reid v. Covert, Obama could implement these restrictions without further legislation. After all, we’ve already seen the President do an end-around Congress by issuing over 20 executive actions this year.
