UN GUN CONTROL BODY SUPPORTED BY OBAMA SETS UP VETO-PROOF FRAMEWORK

Representatives attending the UN Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) in Mexico this week have set up a structure for future conferences on gun control that include a veto-proof decision making process.

According to Reuters, representatives from 130 countries gathered in Mexico, although only 72 countries have fully ratified the treaty. They determined that Geneva will be “the seat of the permanent secretariat for the ATT” and they unanimously decided that unanimous agreements would not have to be reached on gun control decisions going forward.

This gives the body a veto-proof process for making gun control decisions going forward.

Anna McDonald, director of the international gun control group Control Arms, praised the agreed-to decision making process and the role representatives at the conference see for “civic groups.”

On August 23, Breitbart News reported Gun Owners of America’s warning that officials from the Obama administration would be attending the conference, even though the U.S. Senate had not ratified the ATT.

GOA Blasts Anti-gun Democrats as Tyrants who Prefer Their Subjects Unarmed

 

 

 

 



 

On August 20, Gun Owners of America executive director Larry Pratt described the Democratic Party on the federal level as “increasingly” tyrannical and focused on passing laws to take guns away from law-abiding Americans.

Pratt said, “The Democrat Party has increasingly become a party of tyranny. And you can’t be a good tyrant if there are a whole bunch of schlubs running around with guns.”

And Pratt is not wrong. The link between federal-level Democrats and a relentless push for gun control is undeniable. Obama craves it, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT), Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), and Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) continually push it, and Representatives like Elizabeth Etsy (D-CT-5th) and Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA-5th) eagerly promote it.

GOA:  Abolish Gun Free Zones by Hitting Their Creators in the Pocketbook

On August 19 Breitbart News spoke with Gun Owners of America (GOA) executive director Larry Pratt and he described gun free zones as “murder magnets” that must be abolished by hitting their creators where it hurts–“in their bloody pocketbooks.”

GOA has been unflinching in their opposition to gun free zones in schools from the moment Senator Joe Biden (D-Md.) introduced them in 1990. They remain opposed to the current cacophony of “guns allowed” versus “no guns allowed” areas in schools, colleges, and businesses that we see around the country today. This confusing mix presents law-abiding citizens with certain places where self-defense is honored and certain places were law-abiding citizens check their dignity and their ability to defend themselves at the door.

Despite Obama's efforts for gun control, US firearms production jumped 140% in five years

"People have been rushing to buy firearms because they’re afraid that Obama will take away their Second Amendment rights,” pointed out Erich Pratt of Gun Owners of America.

In 2010, more than 5.4 million firearms were manufactured. That number climbed to more than 10.8 million in 2013,” stated the ATF.

CA CITY SEIZES WIFE’S GUNS BECAUSE HUSBAND UNDERWENT ‘PSYCHIATRIC EVALUATION’

San Jose’s Lori Rodriguez says the city seized her 12 guns after her husband was forced to undergo a “72-hour psychiatric evaluation,” and she is suing the city to get back the guns....

These cases highlight the danger Breitbart News, the NRA, and Gun Owners of America have warned about in instances where domestic violence and other issues are used as a Trojan Horse for gun control. The push is insidious, and once those promoting gun control get their foot in the door, they often simply continue pushing.

Record Refutes McCain's "Day At The Beach" Charge
by
Nathan Burchfiel
As published at CNSNews.com

Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain... accused the Bush administration of creating the impression that the war in Iraq would be "some kind of day at the beach." But transcripts of Bush's speeches from March 2003 show that Bush tried to distance himself from analysts who said the campaign would be easy.

During a campaign stop for Sen. Mike DeWine (R-Ohio), McCain said, "One of the biggest mistakes we made was underestimating the size of the task and the sacrifices that would be required," according to the Associated Press.

But in his address to the nation on March 19, 2003 -- as American fighters began dropping bombs on Baghdad -- Bush said the bombings were the "opening stages of what will be a broad and concerted campaign."

The conflict "could be longer and more difficult than some predicted," Bush explained, due to the harsh terrain and unpredictable fighting methods of the enemy. He added that "helping Iraqis achieve a united, stable and free country will require our sustained commitment."

Larry Sabato, director of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia, said McCain, a likely candidate for the Republican nomination for president in 2008, is trying to distance himself from the president to appeal to so-called moderate voters.

"He's practicing that high wire act that all Republicans in 2008 are probably going to have to endure," Sabato said. "He's going to have to be pro-Bush enough to satisfy GOP activists who vote in primaries and caucuses, and yet he has to be enough of a change to get elected in November."

Sabato joked that McCain "was against President Bush before he was for him," a reference to Sen. John Kerry's (D-Mass.) statement during the 2004 presidential campaign that he was "for the $87 billion before I was against it."

Sabato predicted that "... he (McCain) will say some very positive things about President Bush and his Iraq policy." Sabato said he also felt President Bush sugar coated assessments of the situation in Iraq early in the conflict, making it seem as though the mission would be easier than it has been.

"There was some of that," Sabato said. "I think that was part of the encouragement to go in, that 'we can mop this up pretty quickly, it'll take a few months.'"

"In fact, I remember them cautioning people who expected this to be lightning quick as in 1991. 'No, instead of a few days, it's going to take a few months,'" Sabato claimed. "Well, it turns out it's a few years, or maybe more than a few years."

In his March 22 radio address, Bush repeated his belief that "a campaign on harsh terrain in a vast country could be longer and more difficult than some have predicted."

In a March 23 press conference, Bush said it was "going to take a while to achieve our objective," that "we're slowly, but surely, achieving our objective" and that "it's important for the American people to realize that this war has just begun, that ... we're just in the beginning phases."

In his now infamous "Mission Accomplished" speech on May 1, 2003, Bush said the operation "was carried out with a combination of precision and speed and boldness the enemy did not expect, and the world has not seen before."

While much of Bush's speech was celebratory, he also noted that "we have difficult work to do in Iraq. We're bringing order to parts of that country that remain dangerous."

"The transition from dictatorship to democracy will take time, but it is worth the effort," Bush said. "Our coalition will stay until our work is done."
