I’m sitting in my hotel room in New York City, just blocks away from the United Nations Plaza, studying the draft UN “Small Arms Treaty.”

And it’s just as I expected.

After you strip away all of the flowery language of this treaty, it comes down to a completely open-ended attempt to put United Nations bureaucrats in charge of firearms policy worldwide, usurping the authority of countries to set their own policies.

If you want to slog through the draft language, you can see it by clicking here.

What you’ll notice is the entire scope of this treaty is covered in elegant dancing, attempting to say things without actually saying them.

But UN insiders — who’ve been involved in this process for years — say you can understand a lot more about the intentions of this treaty by reading between the lines, and by noticing the ambiguous mentioning of “control”.

Some of the apologists will point to a paragraph in the preamble, claiming that it covers the “lawful private ownership” of firearms for recreational and sporting activities.

First, the preamble isn’t binding. It’s where you put nice-sounding words that have literally ZERO legal force.

Second, the preamble language doesn’t even mention “lawful private ownership.” Only “recreational” or “sporting” use.

If you’ve been around the gun control debate for as long as I have — and I just started my 20th year as a professional “gun lobbyist” — you know what politicians mean when they talk about “recreational and sporting” firearms.

Hint: they’re aren’t talking about defensive handguns, semi-automatic rifles like the AR-15, Mini-14, M1A, M1 Garand or anything like that.

Sporting firearms are shotguns and bolt action rifles. They don’t want to anger hunters, but instead have their eye set on what our founding fathers called “liberty’s teeth.”

If you doubt that, just look at the statue in the main plaza of the UN.

It’s not a tank’s main gun that’s tied in a knot.

It’s a uniquely American revolver — closely resembling a Smith & Wesson, if not an exact copy.

In other words, a defensive handgun. An icon of American independence.

But that’s the attitude down here: UN bureaucrats scoff at American freedoms, and the anti-gun organizations gleefully point to mass murders as their proof that America’s firearms freedoms are far too lax.

Of course, virtually all of these UN bureaucrats come from countries where only government agents have firearms — and where unarmed civilians are subjects.

The goal is simple: get the camel’s nose under the tent. Get international influence, control and authority into firearms policy…

…then ban firearms wholesale, for all but government agents.

The worst — and most surprising, last minute — provision of this treaty is the ability to change it, at any time in the future.

According to Article 20 of the draft, this treaty can be amended by a vote of the signers of the treaty… any time in the future, with amendments proposed by any country!

That means that if the U.S. Senate ratifies this current treaty but opposes future changes, it is still bound by the future changes.

This is the perfect end-run around the U.S. Senate ratification of unpalatable gun controls.

All they need to do is amend the Small Arms Treaty after a very generic version has been ratified, and there’s no need to ratify it again, according to the treaty’s language for amendments.

Just this morning I was interviewed by Fox News, and my message was clear: we will fight against this treaty in the U.S. Senate.

We will fight against ratification of this treaty with everything at our disposal.

After the camera’s lights turned off and we went off-air, the reporter leaned in close and said “but can you beat it?”

My response: “With enough activists, yes, we can.”

Take Action : 1,227 Calls So Far

Eric Cantor has announced that Ron Paul’s Audit the Fed bill, H.R. 459, will be voted on, on the House floor, on Tues 7/24, Wed 7/25, or Thurs 7/26.

I urge you to call your congressman and urge him or her to vote YES on H.R. 459.

http://action.freedomworks.org/7388/tell-your-congressman-to-vote-yes-on-audit-fed-bill/

FROM RAND PAUL:

I’m excited to report that Audit the Fed (H.R. 459) passed the House in a 327-98 vote landslide!

The demand for accountability and transparency was so massive that nearly half the Democrats in congress voted to lift the curtain on Ben Bernanke’s secret manipulations of our economy.

This tremendous victory for sound money, limited government, and free markets was possible because you turned up the heat on congress with phone calls and emails.

But now the fight shifts to the Senate where I have sponsored a companion Audit the Fed bill (S. 202) and I expect to have to fight tooth and nail to get a vote.

You see, Harry Reid is determined to protect vulnerable Democrats who desire to continue the bailouts and endless spending by denying a vote.

Can you imagine, at the height of the most important election of our lifetime, any senator in a competitive race trying to explain to their constituents why they looked the other way as the Fed bailed out the politically well-connected and devalued our currency with trillions of dollars in debt?

Either vulnerable Democrats vote to pierce the veil of secrecy surrounding the Fed or RANDPAC will make sure their constituents realize their senator voted to keep the Fed’s printing presses running unchecked.

But this will only be possible if we can generate a tidal wave of grassroots support.

That’s why I hope I can count on you to chip in a contribution by clicking the link below

[I’m not advertising for Rand, go to randpac if you want to donate “X”]

and help RANDPAC crank up the pressure on the senate through emails, phone calls, direct mail and online ads to force Harry Reid to hold a vote on Audit the Fed.

You and I have shoved aside Harry Reid’s roadblocks before and we can do it again.

its-the-law-in-kennesaw

The anti-Second Amendment crowd is on the warpath again. PBS’ Bill Moyers, who served as White House Press Secretary in the Lyndon Johnson administration from 1965 to 1967, called theNRA “the enabler of death.” It seems to me that James Holmes is the Enabler of Death. 65 million other gun owners in the United States didn’t kill anybody last Thursday evening.

I live just a few miles from the most pro-gun city in the United States – Kennesaw Georgia – where gun ownership is mandatory. It’s not the “Wild West” like some people predicted when it passed a mandatory gun ownership law. “The city of Kennesaw was selected by Family Circle magazine as one of the nation’s ‘10 best towns for families.’ The award was aimed at identifying the best communities nationally that combine big-city opportunities with suburban charm, a blend of affordable housing, good jobs, top-rated public schools, wide-open spaces, and less stress.”[1]

In 1982 the city passed the following ordinance [Sec 34-21] which was in response to a handgun ban in Morton Grove, Ill.

 

(a) In order to provide for the emergency management of the city, and further in order to provide for and protect the safety, security and general welfare of the city and its inhabitants, every head of household residing in the city limits is required to maintain a firearm, together with ammunition therefore.

(b) Exempt from the effect of this section are those heads of households who suffer a physical or mental disability which would prohibit them from using such a firearm. Further exempt from the effect of this section are those heads of households who are paupers or who conscientiously oppose maintaining firearms as a result of beliefs or religious doctrine, or persons convicted of a felony.

The city’s website states that Kennesaw “has the lowest crime rate in Cobb County,” one of the most populous counties in Georgia. In fact, from 1982 through 2009, Kennesaw had been nearly murder free with one murder occurring in 2007.

There were three murders in 2010 committed by the same man in what is described as a “school safety zone,” an area extending 1,000 feet from any school, including adult colleges and technical schools. This means that even though Kennesaw has the most liberal gun laws in the United States, employees at the facility where the murders were committed could not have a gun on the premises.

Of course, criminals don’t care about laws; that’s why they’re criminals. Ed Stone of Atlanta Gun Rights Examiner makes these important points:

“Unfortunately experience with actual ‘school safety zones’ in Georgia has proven that the ‘school safety zone’ law approach does not stop violent armed crime, as it disarms only the potential victims of an attack. Criminals seeking to rob, rape, and murder ignore the ‘school safety zone’ as merely one more law they are breaking.”

Now we come to New York City. In September 2011 Ryan Jerome, a former Marine Corps gunner, walked up to a security officer at the Empire State Building and asked where he could check his gun.

He had a valid concealed carry permit from his home state of Indiana. He also had the rights given to him under the Second Amendment. No matter, the security officer called police and Jerome spent the next two days in jail. “The 28-year-old with no criminal history now faces a mandatory minimum sentence of three and a half years in prison. If convicted, his sentence could be as high as fifteen years.”

He brought the gun for protection since he was traveling with $15,000 worth of jewelry that he planned to sell. Certainly a rational decision, given the crime rate in New York City and stories like the U.S. Marine veteran who was shot three times when a Craigslist transaction went bad.

In December of 2011, Tennessee nurse Meredith Graves noticed a “no guns” sign at the World Trade Center site in New York City and asked where she could leave her weapon. Like Jerome, she was arrested and faces similar charges. Mayor Bloomberg claims that she was in possession of cocaine. It seems that what the police found was BC Powder, an over-the-counter pain reliever that is sold exclusively in the South.

In a 25-year period, New York City has had more than 15,000 murders – 2245 in 1990 alone– while Kennesaw, Georgia, had 1.

Two Texas Highway Patrol Officers were conducting speeding enforcement on Hwy 77, just south of Kingsville, Tx.

One of the officers was using a hand held radar device to check speeding vehicles approaching the town of Kingsville .. The officers were suddenly surprised when the radar gun began reading 300 miles per hour and climbing.

The officer attempted to reset the radar gun, but it would not reset and then it suddenly turned off.

Just then a deafening roar over the Mesquite treetops on Hwy 77 revealed that the radar had in fact locked on to a USMC F/A-18 Hornet which was engaged in a low flying exercise near this, it’s Naval Air home base location in Kingsville Tx.

Back at the Texas Highway Patrol Headquarters in Corpus Christi the Patrol Captain fired off a complaint to the US Naval Base Commander in Kingsville for shutting down his equipment.

The reply came back in true USMC style:

‘Thank you for your letter….

You may be interested to know that the tactical computer in the Hornet had detected the presence of, and subsequently locked on to, your hostile radar equipment and automatically sent a jamming signal back to it, which is why it shut down.

Furthermore, an Air-to-Ground missile aboard the fully armed aircraft had also automatically locked on to your equipment’s location.

Fortunately, the Marine Pilot flying the Hornet recognized the situation for what it was, quickly responded to the missile system alert status, and was able to override the automated defense system, before the missile was launched to destroy the hostile radar position, on the side of Hwy 77 So. Of Kingsville …

The pilot suggests you cover your mouths when cussing at them, since the video systems on these jets are very high tech.

Sergeant Johnson, the officer holding the radar gun, should get his dentist to check his left rear molar. It appears the filling is loose.. Also, the snap is broken on his holster.’

Reasons Why I Carry a Gun

 

 

 Godfather Politics

Carry GunThe following was sent to me by a friend. Hope you enjoy it.

I don’t carry a gun to kill people.

I carry a gun to keep from being killed.

I don’t carry a gun to scare people.

I carry a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary place.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m paranoid.

I carry a gun because there are real threats in the world.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m evil.

I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the world.

I don’t carry a gun because I hate the government.

I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m angry.

I carry a gun so that I don’t have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.

I don’t carry a gun because I want to shoot someone.

I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed, and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m a cowboy.

I carry a gun because, when I die and go to heaven, I want to be a cowboy.

I don’t carry a gun to make me feel like a man.

I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.

I don’t carry a gun because I feel inadequate.

I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

I don’t carry a gun because I love it.

I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.

Police protection is an oxymoron.

Free citizens must protect themselves.

Police do not protect you from crime, they usually just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.

Personally, I carry a gun because I’m too young to die and too old to take a butt whoopin’.

Bloomberg Calls On Obama, Romney to Get Tough on Guns – Patriot Update.

I knew the Anti-gunners would froth at the mouth… Excerpt from the post:

In the wake of Friday’s deadly shooting in Colorado, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg called on both President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney to get specific on how they plan to address gun violence in America.

My answer – I’ve a t-shirt with this statement: If more sane people were armed, the crazy people would get off fewer shots.  Support the 2nd amendment.

Much back & forth over this PAN blog; Other bloggers here who follow me know how I feel about Romney. He is NO Reagan. Leopards don’t change their spots. If any of you read the blog and some of the many comments, you’ll see my own response to a few of the commenting PAN members.  http://resistance.ning.com/forum/topics/spread-the-word-mitt-romney-will-fight-for-and-preserve-the

BUT THIS IS WHY I’M MAKING THIS POST: NOTE THE SUBSEQUENT BLOG obtained from a PAN respondent on a posting by Orly Taitz!

From Orly Taitz:

Urgent!!! I need your help in calling the Supreme Court of the US. More evidence of tampering with the docket, my application for stay sent to justice Thomas and resubmitted to justice Roberts was deleted by someone from the docket

Posted on | July 19, 2012 | 4 Comments

This is the second case where my case is being deleted from the docket of the Supreme Court. The first case, application for stay Lightfoot v Bowen was submitted by me on December 12, 2008, right before the electoral college meeting, which formally elected Obama. The case was read by Chief Justice Roberts and referred to the conference of the Supreme Court which was scheduled for January 23, 2009. Right after the inauguration the case was deleted from the docket and only after the avalanche of phone calls, letter and faxes, which broke their fax machine, the case was re-entered in the docket only minutes before the end of the day on January 22, 2009, on the eve of the conference.

Now I submitted an application for stay of Obama’s primary election. It was submitted to Justice Thomas and resubmitted to Justice Roberts. I posted the docket, which stated: Farrar et al v Obama, attorney Orly Taitz, submitted to Justice Thomas. Now someone deleted the whole case from the docket of the Supreme Court of the US. This is the pinnacle of lawlessness that we are seeing in the Supreme Court. We reached the times, when dealing with the Supreme Court is like dealing with the Chicago mob. No rule of law whatsoever, thugs working there are simply deleting from the docket inconvenient cases.

I need your urgent help!!! Please, call the Supreme Court, demand re- posting of the case. Demand investigation of deletions. Please, write to the Public integrity committee of the Department of Justice, Chairman of the House oversight committee Darrel Issa, Chairman of the judiciary committee Lamar Smith.

In Nazi Germany and Communist Soviet Union they started by making documents disappear and it ended with people disappearing. We can’t allow this Chicago mafia completely take over the nation. Please, help me form a front of resistance to this ruling mob.

See attached the official docket as it was before with the case was deleted and you can see the docket now with the case deleted. this is a totally shocking lawlessness. Please, Forward a criminal complaint to the District Attorney for Washington DC, US attorney of the DC district, Sheriff’s department in the DC, demand immediate criminal investigation and prosecution of thugs, who are deleting from the docket of the Supreme Court inconvenient cases.

1. This is the case as it was on the Supreme Court docket until today:

http://www.orlytaitzesq.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/Farrar-v-Obama-in-front-of-the-Supreme-Court1.pdf

2. Today in the morning the case disappeared from the docket. When you look at 12A25 it only says Orly Taitz, there is no case of Farrar et al v Obama, no information about the case whatsoever.
