Obama's International Gun Control Ploy

Our President continues on his world apology tour, this time blaming all the ills of South America on the USA. From drugs to guns and through poverty, it's all America's problem. Not the problem of the despots and communists who run the countries of South America. Nope it's America's problem.

Drugs coming across your border, guns coming across your border, illegals coming across your border? Then why isn't the simple fix, close the border. WOW, well we couldn't have that, then what would we do about the loss of money we get from ... never mind.
Statement By NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre and NRA Chief Lobbyist Chris Cox Regarding the Organization of American States Treaty on Firearms Trafficking

Thursday, April 16, 2009

The NRA is well aware of the proposed Organization of American States treaty on firearms trafficking, known by its Spanish initials as CIFTA. The NRA monitored the development of this treaty from its earliest days, but contrary to news reports today, the NRA did not "participate" at the meeting where the treaty was approved.

The treaty does include language suggesting that it is not intended to restrict "lawful ownership and use" of firearms . Despite those words, the NRA knows that anti-gun advocates will still try to use this treaty to attack gun ownership in the U.S. Therefore, the NRA will continue to vigorously oppose any international effort to restrict the constitutional rights of law-abiding American gun owners.


Obviously, gun control has got the Democrats in Congress spooked, so they do what they normally do, try for an International solution. This crap treaty has been around since BJ Clinton signed in in 1998. One of it's most onerous requirements is licensing of gun owners.
