UN Arms Trade Conference Begins, Sec. General Calls for "Robust" Treaty

The UN conference on the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) has begun in New York City. Officials encourage all member states to impose stricter gun laws.

The United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) conference has begun in New York, and before the gavel sounded opening the meeting, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon cracked the whip on member states, urging them to get the treaty hammered out and enforced on their populations.

In a statement released just prior to the commencement of the ATT conference on March 18, Ban Ki-moon said he was “confident that Member States will overcome their differences and muster the political will needed to agree on this landmark Treaty.”

Muster the political will sounds like UN argot for ignore the Constitution.

Moon is surely pleased with President Barack Obama’s willingness to do just that. As The New American has reported, within hours of securing his reelection, President Obama ordered the U.S. delegation to the UN to vote in favor of the globalist gun grab.

Then, using the Sandy Hook school shooting not only as a pretext, but a prop, Obama announced his intention to issue 23 executive orders infringing on the people’s right to keep and bear arms as protected by the Second Amendment to the Constitution.

Of course, not only is the assumption of absolute control over the right to purchase, trade, and own a weapon unconstitutional, but the mandating of such measures via edicts that are afforded the color of law by the rest of the federal government is, as well.

It’s easy to tell that the secretary-general is enthused by President Obama’s acceleration of the seizure of weapons. In his statement he declared that “after a very long journey, our final destination is in sight — a robust arms trade treaty.”

How robust is the proposed arms trade treaty? A brief description of some of the provisions should be enough to illicit anger and action from Americans determined to preserve their right to keep and bear arms.
