Ok, I know many of you do not like politics, and I try to avoid discussing them on this forum, but this is something I have a passion for. I love guns. I believe we have a right to own any gun we want and any law preventing it is unconstitutional. The UN wants the US to sign a small arms treaty that will severly limit our 2nd amendment rights. Obama plans on supporting this treaty. Here’s some info on it.
While the terms have yet to be made public, if passed by the U.N. and ratified by our Senate, it will almost certainly force the U.S. to:
1.Enact tougher licensing requirements, creating additional bureaucratic red tape for legal firearms ownership.
This is from Forbes.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want this to ever happen. It violates much of what the founding fathers stood for. Why should we allow a foren power to take away our rights? Don’t we have a right to defend ourselves? (Despite popular belief, gun control does not prevent crime. Criminals will get guns illegally if they have too. I have actually did research on this and found that there is less crime when there is little gun control. That is true of different states, countries, and even decades.)
The right to bear arms is the shield and sword of the constitution. I don’t know about you, but I think taking away this right is something that should never happen.
