U.N. passes sweeping international arms regulation viewed by some as Second Amendment overrideBy David Sherfinski
The Washington Times
 Tuesday, April 2, 2013

The United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday signed off on a sweeping, first-of-its-kind treaty to regulate the international arms trade, brushing aside worries from U.S. gun rights advocates that the pact could lead to a national firearms registry and disrupt the American gun market.
 
The long-debated U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) requires countries to regulate and control the export of weaponry such as battle tanks, combat vehicles and aircraft and attack helicopters, as well as parts and ammunition for such weapons. It also provides that signatories will not violate arms embargoes, international treaties regarding illicit trafficking, or sell weaponry to countries for genocide, crimes against humanity or other war crimes.

Following lengthy process which began in the 1990s, General Assembly today passes Arms Trade Treaty
 
2 April 2013 — Building on a process which began in the 1990s, the General Assembly today passed a resolution adopting an Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) to create a uniform framework covering the international trade in conventional arms. The aim of the treaty is to create a level playing field for the global arms trade, bringing to it more accountability, openness and transparency, and making it harder for human rights abusers, criminals and arms traffickers to obtain weapons.
 
The General Assembly meets to vote on the Arms Trade Treaty.
 
The vote by the General Assembly was 154 in favour, 3 against, and 23 abstentions.
 
The Arms Trade Treaty process began in the 1990s when civil society actors and Nobel Peace Prize Laureates voiced their concern over the unregulated nature of the global arms trade and its impact on human security. Subsequently, a number of States developed an interest in the issue and began a formal process under the purview of the United Nations.
 
In 2006, the United Nations General Assembly requested countries to submit their views on a possible ATT. More than 100 countries did. These views were collected in a 2007 report of the UN Secretary-General.

In 2008 a Group of Governmental Experts examined the feasibility, scope and draft parameters for a comprehensive, legally binding instrument establishing common international standards for the import, export and transfer of conventional arms.
 
In 2009, an Open-ended Working Group – open to all UN Member States – held two meetings on an ATT. At the end of 2009, the General Assembly decided to convene a Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty in 2012 "to elaborate a legally binding instrument on the highest possible common international standards for the transfer of conventional arms". The Conference was preceded by four sessions of a Preparatory Committee.
 
The United Nations Conference on the ATT took place at the United Nations Headquarters in New York from 2-27 July 2012. After four weeks of complex and intense negotiations, the Conference concluded its work without an agreement on a text for a treaty.

The lack of an outcome on 27 July was a blow to the aspirations of large number of the United Nations membership, as well as sectors of the civil society that for almost a decade had been tirelessly advocating the adoption of an ATT. Member States nevertheless came very close to reaching an agreement and pledged to build on the work done by pursuing negotiations in the near future.
 
Before today's historic vote, the Final United Nations Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty took place at the United Nations Headquarters in New York from 18-28 March 2013. Building on the work of the July 2012 Conference, it was designated as "final" to reflect the overwhelming commitment by many to conclude the ATT process and reach an agreement.

UN adopts treaty to regulate global arms trade
By EDITH M. LEDERER, Associated Press
Updated 12:52 pm, Tuesday, April 2, 2013

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The U.N. General Assembly overwhelmingly approved the first U.N. treaty regulating the multibillion-dollar international arms trade, a goal sought for more than a decade to try to keep illicit weapons out of the hands of terrorists, insurgent fighters and organized crime.
 
The resolution adopting the landmark treaty was approved by a vote of 154 to 3 with 23 abstentions. As the numbers appeared on the electronic board, loud cheers filled the assembly chamber.

....
Many countries, including the United States, which voted for the treaty, control arms exports. But there has never been an international treaty regulating the global arms trade
...

The treaty will not control the domestic use of weapons in any country, but it will require countries that ratify it to establish national regulations to control the transfer of conventional arms, parts and components and to regulate arms brokers.
...

The treaty will open for signatures from member states on June 3 and its supporters said they will continue campaigning to get all countries to sign and then ratify it.

...
The treaty approved Tuesday was the first of its kind. The resolution was approved at the U.N. by a vote of 154 to 3 with 23 abstentions.
 
But in the U.S. Senate, which must ratify the treaty in order for the United States to be a party to it, opposition is much stronger.
 
The Senate already voted for an amendment last month to prevent the U.S. from entering into the treaty. The sentiment among conservative and moderate senators concerned the treaty represents an infringement of Second Amendment rights had not changed in light of Tuesday's U.N. vote.
 
"The U.N. Arms Trade Treaty that passed in the General Assembly today would require the United States to implement gun-control legislation as required by the treaty, which could supersede the laws our elected officials have already put into place," Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., said in a statement. "It's time the Obama administration recognizes it is already a non-starter, and Americans will not stand for internationalists limiting and infringing upon their Constitutional rights."

...

In the U.S. Senate, it takes two-thirds of the 100 lawmakers to win ratification.
...
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott swiftly fired off a letter to Obama Tuesday urging him not to sign it. He threatened that if the treaty were eventually signed and ratified, his state would "lead the charge" to have it overturned in court "as a violation of the U.S. Constitution."
 
He voiced concern that the treaty "empowers a new U.N. bureaucracy focused on firearms restrictions that will be run by international bureaucrats."

President should ignore fear mongering and sign arms treaty
By Raymond C. Offenheiser  -    05/31/13 12:00 PM ET

Syria, Iran and North Korea are the only three countries that voted against the Arms Trade Treaty passed by the United Nations General Assembly in April with support from 154 countries, including the United States. Now, U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) and Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.) want to establish their own “axis of misinformation” by spreading falsehoods about the Arms Trade Treaty.
...
Moran and Kelly’s misguided rhetoric includes an argument that the Obama administration is abbreviating the review process, which is simply not true. Other recent multilateral arms agreements have had even shorter time lines. The Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) was signed by the president only 14 days after the text was approved by the General Assembly. Likewise, the president signed the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) 46 days after the text was submitted to the United Nations. Like the CTBT and CWC, the United States played an active role in the negotiations of the ATT, working with other countries to ensure the treaty’s language was acceptable.

Obama Signing United Nations Anti-Gun Treaty June 3rd
AUTHOR Bookworm
May 30, 2013 10:50am PST

The Obama administration has long made it clear that it was intrigued by United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (“ATT”) which, if enacted, will control or prohibit ever civilian arms shipment anywhere in the world. Republicans and a handful of Second Amendment Democrat Senators have been so worried about the Obama administration’s flirtation with the UN ATT that the Senate passed an amendment to stop the Obama administration from entering into the ATT.

Nothing was going to stop Obama, though. Despite Senate objections, on March 28, the Obama administration engaged in an underhanded maneuver that ensures the ATT will pass despite America’s non-participation. Now, although Obama sat out the vote (after ensuring that the treaty would pass) Obama has announced that he will sign the treaty on June 3, on behalf of the United States of America.

The ATT will negatively affect American firearms. It will allow the UN to exert control over (and block) all civilian firearm imports into the United States (such as Glock, which Obama’s media wants to destroy), lessening the overall availability of guns. This, combined with the DHS’s massive weapons and ammunition buying spree, will leave even fewer guns for the civilian and law enforcement markets. In addition, the treaty imposes costly, and often prohibitive, restrictions on firearms imports, which will cover everything from shipping containers to sportsman traveling abroad.

Lawmakers urge Obama to reject UN international arms regulation treaty
Published June 03, 2013


Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have banded together to urge President Obama not to sign a landmark international arms regulation treaty, as the U.N. measure opens for signature Monday.

The president has already voiced support for the treaty, which the U.N. General Assembly overwhelmingly approved on April 2. It would require countries that ratify it to establish national regulations to control the transfer of conventional arms and components and to regulate arms brokers, but it will not explicitly control the domestic use of weapons in any country.

Still, gun-rights supporters on Capitol Hill warn the treaty could be used as the basis for additional gun regulations inside the U.S.

Last week, 130 members of Congress signed a letter to Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry urging them to reject the measure for this and other reasons.
...

The chance of adoption by the U.S. is slim, even if Obama goes ahead and signs it -- as early as Monday, or possibly months down the road. A majority of Senate members have come out against the treaty. A two-thirds majority would be needed in the Senate to ratify.
...
In addition, the treaty requires countries to take measures to prevent the diversion of conventional weapons to the illicit market. This is among the provisions that gun-rights supporters in Congress are concerned about.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

World's top weapons exporters unite to sign historic UN arms treaty
US expected to sign later this year as campaigners hail agreement on treaty designed to prevent illegal arms trafficking
guardian.co.uk, Monday 3 June 2013 12.03 EDT
...
Many of the world's top arms exporters, including the UK, Germany and France, were due to sign the treaty. The US announced on 2 April that it accepted the treaty and is expected to sign later this year.
...
Syria, North Korea and Iran voted against the treaty, while Russia, China, India and several other countries abstained.
...
Countries began the signing process at the Trusteeship Council at the UN headquarters on Monday morning, and UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon was expected to give a speech later.
...

Anna Macdonald, Head of Arms Control, Oxfam said ...
"This treaty now makes governments take responsibility for every arms transfer that enters or leaves their territory, and requires they put human rights and humanitarian law, not profit, at the heart of every decision. Too many lives have been lost to armed violence – today's ceremony marks a new dawn."

The Obama administration has indicated it will sign the pact, despite opposition by the National Rifle Association which claimed, falsely, that it would have an impact on domestic gun use.

Last year, after negotiations on the treaty broke down, the NRA claimed victory for "killing the UN ATT."

The US was among the countries pushing for the General Assembly vote last month, in a 154-3 vote. Major arms exporters Russia and China, which had earlier raised major concerns about the final draft of the treaty, abstained from voting, along with over 20 other nations.

U.N. arms treaty a direct threat to American gun ownership

By Chris W. Cox - 06/03/13 06:00 PM ET

Oxfam America has long served as a reliable cheerleader for nearly all misguided United Nations policy. However, Oxfam America President Raymond Offenheiser’s Friday op-ed (“President should ignore fear mongering and sign arms treaty”) is an exceptional illustration of this blind allegiance. Offenheiser wants us to simultaneously believe the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty is both the single most important tool to cracking down on war crimes and that the treaty has absolutely no teeth whatsoever. That’s twisted logic for sure. Here’s the truth.

The Arms Trade Treaty directly threatens the Second Amendment rights and privacy of American gun owners. Article 12 of the treaty “encourages” signatory nations to compile “records” of all “end users” of firearms imported into their county — and to supply this sensitive personal information to the government of the exporting country.

In other words, if you bought a shotgun made by an Italian manufacturer, the U.S. government would keep a record of your purchase and provide your information to the Italian government. This is gun registration on an international level, plain and simple.

Should the U.S. refuse to take part in this international gun registry, other nations could be required to ban the export of firearms to the United States. This would drive many foreign firearms manufacturers out of business and significantly increase the cost of perfectly legal firearms. The fundamental right to self-defense would become unaffordable for many law-abiding civilians around the world.

Signing this treaty would be a clear indication that President Obama wants to resurrect his failed attempt to implement backdoor gun registration. It would also show his clear contempt for American supremacy and sovereignty.

An overwhelming majority in the General Assembly voted in favour of the landmark Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), regulating the international trade in conventional arms, from small arms to battle tanks, combat aircraft and warships. The treaty will foster peace and security by putting a stop to destabilising arms flows to conflict regions. It will prevent human rights abusers and violators of the law of war from being supplied with arms. And it will help keep warlords, pirates, and gangs from acquiring these deadly tools.

Kerry signs UN arms treaty, senators threaten to block it
Published September 25, 2013•
FoxNews.com

Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday signed a controversial U.N. treaty on arms regulation, riling U.S. lawmakers who vow the Senate will not ratify the agreement.




As he signed the document, Kerry called the treaty a "significant step" in addressing illegal gun sales, while claiming it would also protect gun rights.

"This is about keeping weapons out of the hands of terrorists and rogue actors. This is about reducing the risk of international transfers of conventional arms that will be used to carry out the world's worst crimes. This is about keeping Americans safe and keeping America strong," he said. "This treaty will not diminish anyone's freedom. In fact, the treaty recognizes the freedom of both individuals and states to obtain, possess, and use arms for legitimate purposes."

U.S. lawmakers, though, have long claimed the treaty could lead to new gun control measures. They note the U.S. Senate has final say on whether to approve the agreement.

Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., in a letter to President Obama, urged his administration not to take any action to implement the treaty without the consent of the Senate.

He claimed the treaty raises "fundamental issues" concerning "individual rights protected by the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution."
...
Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., one of the most vocal opponents of the treaty, also sent a letter to Kerry declaring the treaty "dead in the water," since a majority of senators has gone on record against the agreement.

"The administration is wasting precious time trying to sign away our laws to the global community and unelected U.N. bureaucrats," he wrote.
 Kerry, who is in New York attending the U.N. General Assembly session, announced earlier this year that the administration planned to sign the treaty

Merry Christmas: UN Declares Arms Trade Treaty to Go Into Effect Dec. 24


The New American
08 November 2014


On its official website, the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs (yes, that’s really a thing and yes, it is housed right here in the United States) announced that the UN’s Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) “will enter into force on 24 December 2014.”

Merry Christmas!

It is ironical that on the day before the world’s 2.18 billion Christians commemorate the coming of Jesus Christ to the Earth, the United Nations will officially put into motion a plan to deny them of a right given to them by the very God whose birth they celebrate.

 Jesus was born in the Harvest times [about Sept.29th], But we can Celebrate HIS conception: which is about Dec.25!

 Check the dates--9 months to birth from conception!

On subject; Of course the EVIL UN would pick a date that hurts Christians!

 One thing the UN has never known--is that--Jesus Lives forever---and they are just a Blip on the Radar Screen of history!

Signing the Treaty does not make the State a party to it.
Signature does not legally bind the signatory State or require it to  begin to implement the provisions of the Treaty. To become legally bound by a multilateral treaty, a signatory State must subsequently  deposit its instrument of ratification, acceptance or approval. That State will then become a party in accordance with the entry into force provisions of the treaty in question.

52 senators warn of sweeping ammo bans, say Second Amendment 'at risk'
 By Paul Bedard  | March 10, 2015 | 11:48 am

A majority in both the Senate and House — 52 senators, 238 House members — have joined to oppose the Obama administration's move to ban a popular type of ammo used in the top-selling AR-15 rifle and pistol because it pierces police body armor.

A week after the House members, led by Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte, sent a letter of opposition to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley echoed that in his own letter signed by 51 others.

In their letter, the senators said that the 5.56 M855 "green tip" cartridge was exempted in a 1986 law, along with other rifle ammo from bans on armor-piercing rounds. The reason: popular rifle ammo is not used in shootouts with police.

The Truth On AR 15 Ammunition Ban 5.56 green tip BATFAE
 By Rev. Laura Ellen Bradley
February 18, 2015 Guns, Ammo, & Knives
...
The ‘green tip’ or solid steel tip 5.56/.223 is a cleaner shot…it penetrates going right through where as the traditional lead 5.56/.223 when it hit flesh flattens out, tumbles and fragments therefore violating the Geneva Convention. So our military switched to something less than ‘inhumane’ (whatever, like a bullet is somehow different in its effect). Now here is the kicker…we now have available ‘pistols’ that take and fire the 5.56/.223, 7.62 x 39, and 7.62 x 54r. When the regulations were put into place in the late 80’s and early 90’s we had no such firearms. We do NOW.


There are in fact AR 15 pistols, AK 47 pistols and yes Virginia, some DA came up with a Mosin pistol. Under ATF rules exemptions were given to steel core or steel tip ammunition because they were for rifles ONLY!!! Within the past few years, pistols that would take the 5.56/.223, 7.62 x 39 and 7.62 x 54r have become commercially available thus giving the ATF a way to regulate these rounds given that the EXEMPTIONS for these rounds were given in years past ONLY because they were RIFLE rounds.

Now, before anyone gets pissed at me and starts to blast me…I am merely giving YOU the reader the truth as to what and why this is happening. They, the ATF is not banning 5.56, .223 or any other round AS LONG AS THE TIP AND/OR THE CORE DOES NOT CONTAIN THE FOLLOWING: (a soft core is okay)

Yes, what they, the ATF is trying to do is bullcrap, none of the bullets they are trying to ban are ‘armor’ piercing, except for the fact the average LEO wears no more protection outside of ‘stab’ (very few wear what is known as SAPI plates which stop small arms or military grade). But what we have going on here is nothing less than back door UN Small Arms Treaty via backdoor.

This is NOT about a bullet! This is about the UN SMALL ARMS TREATY that the US did not ratify but because of Obama and his elk who absolutely believes in relieving us of our second amendment rights, will do anything to make it real.

First comes the ban on ‘green tips’ and other types of bullets which are primarily import surplus, next comes denying our right to certain types of firearms. I am not a fear monger, but the ATF is in the process of taking away our rights…first they come for steel tip and others, next they will come for the firearms…let them know you won’t stand for this. Say it loud and stand proud.

Obama To Circumvent Congress With ‘Gag Order’ On Firearm Coverage
by AWR Hawkins7 Jun 2015
...
Moreover, last week the State Department put forth a proposal “clarifying” how to handle releases containing “technical data” which are posted online or otherwise distributed into the “public domain.” Ultimately, the proposal would require those releasing “technical data” on ammunition or firearms to first seek government approval.

Here’s how the NRA-ILA summed it up:


The proposal would institute a massive new prior restraint on free speech. This is because all such releases would require the ‘authorization’ of the government before they occurred. The cumbersome and time-consuming process of obtaining such authorizations, moreover, would make online communication about certain technical aspects of firearms and ammunition essentially impossible.

Public comments on the proposed changes to ITAR will be accepted until August 3, 2015. You can submit those comments at regulations.gov or e-mail them to [email protected] with the subject line indicating the comments concern the ‘‘ITAR Amendment—Revisions to Definitions; Data Transmission and Storage.”

80 FR 31525, June 3, 2015, Public Notice 9139
Amendment to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations: Revisions to Definitions of Defense Services, Technical Data, and Public Domain; Definition of Product of Fundamental Research; Electronic Transmission and Storage of Technical Data; and Related Definitions.
 As part of the President's Export Control Reform (ECR) initiative, the Department of State proposes to amend the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) to update the definitions of "defense article," "defense services," "technical data," "public domain," "export," and "reexport or retransfer" in order to clarify the scope of activities and information that are covered within these definitions and harmonize the definitions with the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), to the extent appropriate. Additionally, the Department proposes to create definitions of "required," "technical data that arises during, or results from, fundamental research," "release," "retransfer," and "activities that are not exports, reexports, or retransfers" in order to clarify and support the interpretation of the revised definitions that are proposed in this rulemaking. The Department proposes to create new sections detailing the scope of licenses, unauthorized releases of information, and the "release" of secured information, and revises the sections on "exports" of "technical data" to U.S. persons abroad.

Finally, the Department proposes to address the electronic transmission and storage of unclassified "technical data" via foreign communications infrastructure. This rulemaking proposes that the electronic transmission of unclassified "technical data" abroad is not an "export," provided that the data is sufficiently secured to prevent access by foreign persons. Additionally, this proposed rule would allow for the electronic storage of unclassified "technical data" abroad, provided that the data is secured to prevent access by parties unauthorized to access such data.

The Department of State is responsible for the export and temporary import of defense articles and services governed by 22 U.S.C. 2778 of the Arms Export Control Act ("AECA"; see the AECA Web page) and Executive Order 13637. The International Traffic in Arms Regulations ("ITAR," 22 CFR 120-130) implements the AECA. The ITAR is available from the Government Printing Office (GPO) as an annual hardcopy or e-document publication as part of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and as an updated e-document.

Obama Expresses Desire to Block ’21-Year-Old Kid’ from Buying Handguns
by Charlie Spiering 20 Jun 2015

As President Obama continues his California fundraising tour, he encouraged his wealthy San Francisco friends to stop mass shootings by mobilizing for gun control.

Referring to the church shooting in Charleston, Obama insisted that mass shootings were “unique” to America because of its gun laws, adding such events don’t happen as often in other “advanced countries.”

“It’s not because there aren’t violent people or racist people or crazy people in other countries; it’s that a 21-year-old kid can’t just walk in and buy a firearm and, oftentimes, through gun shows, avoid background checks, and then act on this hatred,” he said. “And we’ve got to change that, and it’s not enough for us to express sympathy — we have to take action.”

Obama admitted that in a Republican-led Congress, it would be difficult to pass any legislation.

“It is not going to happen in this Congress, but we have to stay on it so that it does,” he said.

Gun Control Wall, Bolstered by Republicans, Shows a Crack
By CARL HULSE   JUNE 29, 2016

WASHINGTON — A widely publicized sit-in by House Democrats. A bipartisan compromise proposal in the Senate. Neither is very likely to lead to any legislative action in Congress on gun safety this year. Election Day is too close, and most of the Republican opposition is too dug in.

But the fact that a legislative response remains elusive does not mean there has been no movement on the issue. Members of both parties say they sensed a shift in then debate after the mass killing in Orlando, Fla., a notable difference in attitude from the reaction on Capitol Hill after previous horrific shootings.

Eight Senate Republicans joined with 44 Democrats on a Republican-proposed compromise that would deny people on two different federal watch lists the ability to buy weapons unless they could successfully appeal that decision. Several other Republican senators showed some willingness to accept new restrictions on gun purchases if they could be structured in an acceptable way. A bipartisan companion measure also was introduced in the House.

Obama Seeks Ratification of UN Arms Trade Treaty Before Leaving Office
by AWR Hawkins  13 Sep 2016

With only months left before before leaving office, President Obama is committed to securing ratification of the United Nation’s Arms Trade Treaty (ATT).

ATT has been an on again off again project of the Obama administration during both terms of his presidency, particularly his first term.

...

To require recording keeping on end users is nothing other than requiring registration of end users. In fact, Breitbart News warned that firearm registration must proceed from the ATT if it is to be enforceable. This is a logical but freedom-crushing consequence when part of the treaty’s focus is stopping the movement of “small arms [and] light weapons” across borders. How are agents tasked with enforcing this treaty going to ascertain the origin of smuggled weapons without a comprehensive registration on file?

Yet even with all the evidence and warnings that an international registry would certainly follow any U.S. agreement to comport with the treaty, and even though Republicans in the Senate had already made clear the treaty would not be ratified, Secretary of State John Kerry signed it on September 25, 2013. The goal appeared to be put everything in place so a future, Democrat-dominated Senate could revisit the ATT, ratify it, and get the U.S. on the road to international gun control.

And on September 11, The Daily Signal reported that Obama is still committed to ratification of the treaty before he leaves office, if he can find a way to secure it.

...

Obama Advocates for UN Gun Treaty Ratification

Fred Lucas / @FredLucasWH / September 11, 201
/...

The language is so vague is could almost mean anything. A lot could be done to rationalize gun control. The treaty has no prohibitions, no thou-shalt-nots,” Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, told The Daily Signal. “President [Barack] Obama has for some time used as a defense a cell phone and a pen and not the Constitution or even a treaty for taking action.”
