UN Small Arms Treaty Passes While Media Sleeps

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Source: Freedom Outpost

The United Nations Small Arms Treaty passed in its second session. The Media was silent over its passage.

According to the UN’s press release,

Concluding its two-week session today, the second United Nations conference to review the 2001 Programme of Action on trafficking in small arms and light weapons adopted a consensus outcome document that highlighted the international community’s renewed commitment to preventing, combating and eradicating the illicit trade.

The document’s adoption represented a major achievement for delegations, who had failed to agree on a final outcome at the first review conference, held in 2006. “We accomplished something great today,” said U. Joy Ogwu ( Nigeria), President of the Conference, formally known as the United Nations Conference to Review Progress Made in the Implementation of the Programme of Action to Prevent, Combat and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All Its Aspects.

According to the text, Member States renewed their pledge to rid the world of the scourge brought upon it by the illicit manufacture, transfer and circulation of small arms and light weapons, and their excessive accumulation and uncontrolled spread in many parts of the world. They also committed to mobilizing the necessary political will and resources to implement the Programme of Action and the International Tracing Instrument, with the aim of achieving clear and tangible results over the next six years, through 2018.

Further by the text, States emphasized that the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons continued to sustain conflicts, exacerbate armed violence, undermine respect for international humanitarian law and international human rights law, aid terrorism and illegal armed groups, and facilitate increasing levels of transnational organized crime, as well as trafficking in humans, drugs and certain natural resources.

Ahhh yes, the cries of terrorism and drugs and boogey men for the passage of the treaty. This comes from member nations who knowingly promote these kinds of things. Even the United States is now in the midst of a scandal involving gunwalking, known as Fast and Furious, and at least one man arrested has come forward and said that Fast and Furious was all about arming drug cartels in Mexico, never about tracking them.

All countries signed the declaration and further documentation can be found here.

According to the program of action:

“8. Reaffirming our respect for and commitment to international law and the purposes and principles enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, including the sovereign equality of States, territorial integrity, the peaceful resolution of international disputes, non-intervention and non-interference in the internal affairs of States, “. Non-intervention and non-interference? How about Syria? NATO is part of the United Nations.

“9. Reaffirming the inherent right to individual or collective self-defence in accordance with Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations,”. Collective means the state, in-contrary to our Bill of Rights guaranteed by our government, but ultimately granted by our Creator.

“10. Reaffirming also the right of each State to manufacture, import and retain small arms and light weapons for its self-defence and security needs, as well as for its capacity to participate in peacekeeping operations in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations, “. This is just another statement dealing with a ‘collective right’, not an individual right. The ATF, FBI, Homeland Security, along with all the ‘alphabet’ agencies of the federal and state governments are immune and the tyranny they will accomplish when this treaty is fully implemented staggers the mind.

“11. Reaffirming the right of self-determination of all peoples, taking into account the particular situation of peoples under colonial or other forms of alien domination or foreign occupation, and recognizing the right of peoples to take legitimate action in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations to realize their inalienable right of self-determination. This shall not be construed as authorizing or encouraging any action that would dismember or impair, totally or in part, the territorial integrity or political unity of sovereign and independent States conducting themselves in compliance with the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples,” This section was examined previously. It is important to point out that the West Bank and Gaza are not recognized as an ‘sovereign and independent States’, therefore they are up for grabs.

Of course this will be enforced by the UN’s blue helmets, or International Assistance.

Keys To Liberty reported,

It is interesting to note, the “delegations agreed to strengthen the action programme’s implementation at the national, regional and global levels over the period 2012-2018. On follow-up measures, they decided to hold a one-week biennial meeting of States in 2014 and 2016, and a one-week open-ended meeting of governmental experts in 2015 to consider the Programme of Action’s full and effective implementation”. (Underline Emphasis is the author’s) Over the next few years ‘something’ is needed to fully implement this treaty by 2018. Each two years they will meet to see how the treaty has been complied with. This means new statutes in place at the federal level, further restricting the right to keep and bear arms. An assault weapons ban, large capacity magazine ban and stripper clips ban are just around the corner. In the future this will probably begin with more ‘false flag’ operations, stemming, and leading to our own government behind them. More Aurora, Colorado’s, more Sikh Temple type massacres around the country and maybe even a Oklahoma City bombing type event.

Right about now you are probably thinking, so what? As long as the Senate doesn’t ratify all if well. Ask yourself if you are familiar with the United Nation’s Agenda 21. The Senate didn’t ratify that. Instead Bill Clinton basically passed it by executive order. Mike Opelka, at the Blaze writes:

Agenda 21 is a two-decade old, grand plan for global ’Sustainable Development,’ brought to you from the United Nations. George H.W. Bush (and 177 other world leaders) agreed to it back in 1992, and in 1995, Bill Clinton signed Executive Order #12858, creating a Presidential Council on ‘Sustainable Development.’ This effectively pushed the UN plan into America’s large, churning government machine without the need for any review or discussion by Congress or the American people.

So it is perfectly feasible that this will be implemented over a period of years, but very short years.

From The Trenches reports on legislation that is currently before Congress to put the squeeze on those of us wishing to maintain our Second Amendment rights.

Enter H.R. 6241 and S. 3458, identical bills in both houses that are currently in committee; titled Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act of 2012 .When passed, in person sales of ammunition will be required, as well as registration of amounts exceeding 1,000 rounds, or 1,000 rounds over a week period. The idea behind this legislation is to make you pay more in the future for ammunition and to register sales. It will also limit your selection to what ever is available at a local store.
Another bill before Congress, sitting in committee is Gun Show Loophole Closing Act of 2011. It is H.R. 591, in the House and S.35 in the Senate. It would permanently ban Gun Shows if passed.

Here is another one held up in committee, Fix Gun Checks Act of 2011.This one penalized states that don’t report enough violators to the National Instant Criminal Background Checks. In the Senate it is S. 436.

Doing a search for ‘assault weapons’ this Bill came up, titled Child Gun Safety And Gun Access Prevention Act Of 2011. This one raises the age of ‘Juvenile’ to ‘under 21′ with penalties for transfer of guns, ammunition, high capacity clips to anyone under 21 who might commit a crime. This one is bound to pass, because of the New Speak in the title. The socialists will love it.

By the way, what has been covered during the past week? Oh that’s right, some anti-islamic film, nude pictures of Dutchess Kate and a few political gaffes.

      Of course they even distracted everyone with royal titites. It’s a good indication of what they think of everyone. ie Sun readers obsessed with tits and the Royals, they obviously think royal titties can hypnotise the world.

        She’s a bit flat-chested. Can’t ‘hypnotise’ me with such ordinary ‘titties’

          We never even got to see them in the UK, so they were hypotising us with censored royal tities.

      Executive Order #12858 was not signed in 1995, it was signed in 1993, and it has nothing to do with the UN, it was for DEFICIT REDUCTION.

      There was a bill on sustainable development signed by Clinton in 1993, and it was Executive Order 12852 of June 29, 1993. The sustainable development committi is nothing more than an uncompensated (except for travel expenses) advisory board.

      You know it’s not hard to search the national archives at all. just go there and search before you post 3rd hand crap, that is incorrect. You cheapen and cast a shadow of disbelief on this who site when you just post stuff without researching it. I’ve found tons of EXECUTIVE order errors in other postings, stuff people claimed OBAMA signed, that was actually from the NIXON era, etc, and so forth.

      • Hermodr

        FYI – When a new president comes into office, he automatically re-signs all executive orders instituted by the previous administrations.. Unless he doesn’t want too. One of the more powerful features of that nifty autosigner maybe? Why read hundreds of pages of mumbo jumbo when you can just be told what to do and collect a fat paycheck!

        Executive orders were first used as a request for something from congress.. ie, the floor fell out on some of the white house rooms, pretty please could you fund repairs? <3

        Pretty stark difference from the application we see today.

      Times are changing,I personaly dont have a problem with a one world government,the reasoning behind it is if there is one government it will elimate world wars,no more fighting over resources and so on,however our right to self protection is paramount,the vast majority of americans are law abiding citizens,so therefore law abiding citizens should not be targeted,if there was a real war on drugs that would eliminate the majority of gun crimes,citizens of this nation have to depend on themselves for protection,its going to get interesting over the next few years,I believe the ancients were right about big earth changes,hopefully the changes will be positive because this world is on a collision course with financal destruction,the ponzi schemes are collaapsing under thier own weight because of greed,the fact is everything we need is in nature,we have lost our spirituality and our connection with nature,im old so i dont fear for myself but i do fear for future generations,the way we live has to change now,our oceans asre dieing,there is a mass animal extinction right now,our mother earth deserves much better treatment,if not i believe she will shake us off like a dog does water,im at peace with my maker so i dont fear death,we are beings of light our spirit lives forever,the gnostics spoke of the archons,inorganic beings here on earth creating a false reality to lead us away from our maker,knowledge is the key to understanding our place on this earth,we have divinity in us the archons dont,they thrive on human misery,wars,destruction,we must meditate raise our concessness,if we dont pay close attention we are doomed,we have to search,pray,treat others well,care for eachother time is short

      “…By the way, what has been covered during the past week? Oh that’s right, some anti-islamic film, nude pictures of Dutchess Kate and a few political gaffes…”

      They should require a license to watch the news. That stuff could hurt someone.

    • Docinator

      Stop hoping for the worst….it will come to you eventually….even if the vote did take place…and was covered up by the Mass Media….so what….ARE YOU READY?!!!!

    • Docinator

      So what’s the problem? The small arms treaty specifically states that it doesn’t apply to the United States within it’s own borders.

      This treaty just makes what Eric Holder did an international crime. Seems perfectly fair to me.

    • building 5

      glad it dosen’t affect me.

    • Wake up!

      Mmkkpro, most are to occupied with bull and self centered to feel or connect to what your trying to say. Still trying to figure that one out. Stop hurting our home, at least.

      Here is a message for Hillary Clinton. The day the government start taking guns away from the law by citizens, it is the day will start revolution. Liberty is more important that your stupid idea.
      I hope you will lose your job along with Obama.
