Trump Decides To Ignore U.N.’s Advice On Gun Control.

Trump Decides To Ignore U.N.’s Advice On Gun Control.

The U.N. thinks that international light arms sales emboldens dictators, totally forgetting that Hitler’s Germany made their own guns anyway.

In 2013, Obama signed the U.S. onto the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty. Although not yet ratified by the Senate (hey, this is politics and it’s only been 6 years so far), the “Treaty” is an attempt to restrict the sales of conventional light arms from one country to the other, and not simply government-to-government security usage sales. It was to also restrict public/commercial access to self-defense weapons, i.e., from your home country’s gun shops.

This past week, Trump announced we’re taking back our signature, and we’ll mail a letter next week with more than enough stamps to get there to officially declare it.

Oxfam America President Abby Maxman complained, “The United States will now lock arms with Iran, North Korea and Syria as non-signatories to this historic treaty whose sole purpose is to protect innocent people from deadly weapons.”

Ever hear of Oxfam? Neither had I, until I Wiki’d it:

“Oxfam is a confederation of 20 independent charitable organizations focusing on the alleviation of global poverty, founded in 1942 and led by Oxfam International.”

Well, I’m not too impressed by this, especially considering that the U.S. hasn’t sold a single bullet to Iran, North Korea or Syria in a very long time. (I guess it doesn’t take much brainpower to become president of Oxfam.)

But we’re not finished yet:

Amnesty International USA’s Adotei Akwei said, “With this announcement the Trump administration will re-open the floodgates for arms sales with weakened human rights criteria.”

Huh? Human rights criteria? Whose human rights criteria!? And I guess that the three years between Obama’s 2013 signing and Trump’s 2017 inauguration didn’t open these floodgates and weaken human rights.

Only Trump weakened them! Just last week! In just one day!

Originally, 130 countries agreed to the Treaty, but only 101 have formally and officially signed on so far. Twenty-nine, including the U.S., have yet to do so, and the U.S. isn’t going to.

But there are a total of 193 U.N. nations, so what the hell happened to the other 63? Is it expected that these 130 will follow the rules in the first place (good luck with that), the other 63 don’t even have to try, and the U.S. alone is deserving of criticism for pulling out of this nonsense?

In what alternate reality, what parallel universe, do certain members of the U.N. live in that they think the U.S. is going to abdicate its responsibilities to help our allies and fight our enemies? Let alone allow the U.N. to decide who those allies and enemies should be?

It’s another win for Trump, but an easy win and a no-brainer. The U.S. is not going to take lessons from the rest of the world when it comes to individual gun ownership rights, and what happens when you restrict that right.

Just ask anyone still alive who lived in Eastern Europe between 1939 and 1945, or ask anyone who knows the history, like Trump obviously does.

    Donald Reagan made at least TWO major errors in judgment. He didn’t follow through on his threat to kick the U.N. out of New York AND he granted amnesty to a staggering number of illegal aliens whose first act was to enter the United States with no respect for our immigration laws.
    Today’s Dhimmirat Party is still reaping the rewards of President Reagan’s monumentally stupid decisions to weaken our national security.

      You’re overlooking the part that Ronnie Raygun’s amnesty deal included building a border wall and otherwise increasing border security. Demonrats reneged on their part of the deal; the gloves should have come off then.

    The U.N. is not a Freedom Loving or humanitarian organization. It uses things like Unicef and other aspects of it organization as a smoke screen for it’s TRUE intent; a One World dictatorship with total control of every aspect of the life of the individual, the cessation of Private ownership of land or other accrued wealth, redistribution of all previously held private individual wealth to 3rd world nations, the enslavement of your children as wards of the State to do with as they see fit, the “re-wilding,” of America as their private domain. It will be a world of the politically privileged and powerful and the rest of us will be assigned status as serfs; told where to live, when to eat, what to eat, how to live in THEIR framework! It would be a worldwide dictatorship like none has ever seen and THIS country is the main obstacle to its philosophy and its enemy within behaviors. All new construction will be upward in limited areas , NEVER horizontally expanded! And, the worst aspect of all this is that it is happening thanks largely to the seditious efforts of the lunatic left whose application of the Marxist Dialectic is masterful and working! They are allowing, aiding and abetting the invasion at our Borders in Open Border policies sought by the U.N which in Europe more than here presently is seeing THEIR languages , history, laws and culture being negatively affected by the :”Muslim immigration,” throughout all of Europe and a threat wherever it grows like the terminal cancer militant Islam is, Worldwide. We CANNOT allow that to happen here and the disarmament of America is the foremost thought in the U.N’s consciousness as Americans WITHOUT the 2nd Amendment, would be defenseless against their eventual onslaught and THAT is exactly what they WANT! The same threat is HERE and Growing and only a fool would ignore the threat! but then. we are a nation of fools by performance record in Congress in particular and in the Society in General. After all; is this not the continuing development of the “Great Society?” God help us all as He and Trump are the ONLY ones who can reverse the curse in my opinion and, I have had a degree in government for 52 years, some of it in Washington, D.C, as an Army employed observer of the PRAGMATIC REALITY OTHERS WISH TO IGNORE, BUT, NOT ME, NOT EVER!! We are ruled by American, not International law and THAT is of paramount importance and we cannot allow their interference in OUR domestic affairs; NOT NOW, NOT EVER!

    Many of our People here today still are laboring under the assumption that The United Nations of Global Communism is our friend or has the best interest of our country in mind , That is a false assumption , The United Nations of Global Communism along with their Globalist / Communist Allies is organizing , Supporting , Funding the current Invasion of our country , Much like what has occurred in Europe , The U. N. is in fact waging Asymmetrical Warfare on Christianity and Western Civilization , First they intend to destroy Western Europe and now it has become our turn

    Excellent! Our Rights and sovereignty are not for sale or trade! Finally, a President with the guts to protect this country!

    Next step, get the U.S. out of the UN and get the UN out of the U.S. Their usefulness is exhausted! Now they’re just another anti-American gang and we’re paying the bills!

    Its correct name is IADT, the International Association of Dictators and Tyrants. Leftists (they’re not liberal or progressive) got us into it, and freedom lovers need to get us out of it.

    Russians were able to overthrow the tyranny of Czar Nicholas, III because they had guns, as many were armed veterans of World War I. Unfortunately, they established a new form of tyranny and confiscated guns from the masses so Russians now cannot overthrow the new one.

    American Colonists were able to overthrow the tyranny of King George, III because they had guns, as many were armed hunters. Unfortunately, Leftists want to confiscate our guns and leave us defenseless against their form of tyranny.

    On December 29, 1890, the Seventh Cavalry (U.S. Army) forcibly disarmed most of the Lakota Native Americans near the Wounded Knee Creek in South Dakota and then massacred approximately 300 men, women, and children in the group.

    Since Democrats claim to be the compassionate party, and the IADT claims to promote peace, isn’t it time for them to show a little compassion for the millions of people disarmed and then murdered by their own governments?

      You fail to mention that when the first Europeans arrived here and well into the 19th century the first immigrants to this continent had no way of forging steel, did not have a clue how to make http://www.chemistryislife.com/the-chemistry-of-gunpowder, had to pillage all forged weapons and that includes firearms.
      As for using the term nation, I take personal offense to them wanting the same or of more importance equal rights yet they still refer to themselves by their tribal name, Apache, Cherokee, Commanche, etc., etc. etc. nation.

      Here in WI which is not the ancestral hunting grounds of the Oneida tribe they are still provided special privileges because the federal government way back in the 1830s decided that with all the wide open space in NY they needed to thin out the tribe.

      To enlighten you those tribes native to the WI territory are not happy with the favoritism displayed to the Oneidas, ask any member of the Menomonee tribe.

    More accurately Abby “Madwoman” you people are tyrannical scum, the United Nations is a criminal organization, Trump said before he took office that we were going to withdraw from the U.N. and boot them out of the United States yet we are still a member and they are still on United States soil, do what you said you were going to do Donald “withdraw from and eject the U.N. from the U.S..”
