Very important - Zach - 07-15-2012

Dear Friend,

On July 27th, the nations of the world are scheduled to meet in New York to sign a global Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). Disguised as a way to prevent the proliferation of small arms throughout the world, it is, in fact, a backdoor way to legislate gun control in the United States and effectively repeal our Second Amendment.

The ATT will set up a global body, which will require all nations to regulate firearms so that they can prevent their exportation to other countries. Inevitably, this will require countries to inventory the guns in private hands and to register them. A gun ban is not far away.

The ATT, under the Supremacy Clause of the US Constitution, would have the power of a constitutional amendment and would, effectively, repeal the Second Amendment guaranteeing us the right to bear arms. We must fight to stop the US from signing the treaty and, if we fail, block Senate ratification.

Please sign the petition below and include your name and address so we can send it to your Congressman and Senators. We'll add your email address to our Alerts list so we can keep you posted on progress and next steps.

Thanks very much.

The only reason the second amendment exists is because of the militia.

RE: Very important - Nuke - 07-15-2012

It's to prevent oppressive governments.

I guess it's time to master archery.

Good one, Zach!

And OQ, the government is oppressive. Obviously they're just going to revoke freedom of speech if we let them ban guns.

RE: Very important - opticQuack - 07-16-2012

Isn't that a good thing if they ban guns?
