Hillary Clinton signed the small arms treaty with the UN.
OBAMA FINDS LEGAL WAY AROUND THE 2ND AMENDMENT AND USES IT.
IF THIS PASSES, THERE could BE WAR
On Wednesday Obama Took the First Major Step in a Plan to Ban All Firearms in the United States
On Wednesday the Obama administration took its first major step in a plan to ban all firearms in the United States . The Obama administration intends to force gun control and a complete ban on all weapons for US citizens through the signing of international treaties with foreign nations. By signing international treaties on gun control, the Obama administration can use the US State Department to bypass the normal legislative process in Congress. Once the US Government signs these international treaties, all US citizens will be subject to those gun laws created by foreign governments. These are laws that have been developed and promoted by organizations such as the United Nations and individuals such as George Soros and Michael Bloomberg. The laws are designed and intended to lead to the complete ban and confiscation of all firearms. The Obama administration is attempting to use tactics and methods of gun control that will inflict major damage to our 2nd Amendment before US citizens even understand what has happened.
Obama can appear before the public and tell them that he does not intend to pursue any legislation (in the United States) that will lead to new gun control laws, while cloaked in secrecy, his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton is committing the US to international treaties and foreign gun control laws. Does that mean Obama is telling the truth? What it means is that there will be no publicized gun control debates in the media or votes in Congress. We will wake up one morning and find that the United States has signed a treaty that prohibits firearm and ammunition manufacturers from selling to the public. We will wake up another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that prohibits any transfer of firearm ownership. And then, we will wake up yet another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that requires US citizens to deliver any firearm they own to the local government collection and destruction center or face imprisonment. This has happened in other countries, past and present!
THIS IS NOT A JOKE NOR A FALSE WARNING.
As sure as government health care will be forced on us by the Obama administration through whatever means necessary, so will gun control. Read the Article U.S. reverses stance on treaty to regulate arms trade WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States reversed policy on Wednesday and said it would back launching talks on a treaty to regulate arms sales as long as the talks operated by consensus, a stance critics said gave every nation a veto. The decision, announced in a statement released by the U.S. State Department, overturns the position of former President George W. Bush's administration, which had opposed such a treaty on the grounds that national controls were better. View The Full Article Here

It's BS. The UN Small Arms treaty is about regulating international trade in small arms between countries. The intent is to make it more difficult to sell arms to people like terrorist groups or drug cartels. Of course people like the NAGR are turning it into "Obama's coming for your guns right now! run and hide! He hates children and puppies and applie pie!"

Also, there's the little issue that international treaties to which the U.S. is a party cannot supersede/conflict with the U.S. Constitution, so the whole idea of using an international treaty to somehow do an "end-run" around the Constitution is a non-starter.

I do have to disagree with one point above...
that this treaty has to do with keeping guns out of the hands of terrorist and drug cartels.... I don't really think so, it really has to do with keeping small arms out of the hands of 'freedom' fighters and revolutionaries of one type or another (good or bad). It's all about governments getting more, ultimate, power over their people by what ever means needed.

"By signing international treaties on gun control, the Obama administration can use the US State Department to bypass the normal legislative process in Congress."
That sentence right there is MORE than enough to tell you that this entire thing is 100% bullcrap.
The Constitution mandates that while the State Department is responsible for negotiating and signing treaties, the Senate MUST approve all treaties by a 2/3rds majority.
Anyone who has even the slightest knowledge of how our Constitution works should recognize this.
"THIS IS NOT A JOKE NOR A FALSE WARNING."
Well, at least that's the truth. It's a bunch of lies, misrepresentations, bullcrap, and mouthbreathing mindlessness.
But at least it's not a joke or a false warning.
