Satire by Hugh Farnham
President Obama was at Camp David putting the final touches on the UN Arms Trade Treaty, a progressive wish-list of worldwide gun control diktats.
"I want to be perfectly clear," the President said in a recent interview, "We need Rwandan-style gun control. Only the police and military will have weapons. Period. So slink off and be bitter, but you can't cling to your guns. We need to take those - for your own safety."
A reporter asked about guns for home defense. "Our police and emergency responders need to be as well armed and funded as the military" he said. "You won't need to protect your family from intruders - we'll send professionals to do that."
All satire aside, the tragic fact is that disarming victims leads to great bloodshed. I'm referring to the millions of people who died at the hands of their government over the past century. Most of these mass murders were preceded by a cynical and calculating "gun control" program, leading to eventual disarmament. Genocide followed soon thereafter.
Governments are the greatest mass murderers, not amateurs like James Holmes
The UN Arms Trade Treaty seeks to impose an international regulatory regime of tracking certain firearms, and outright banning of others - except for those guns in the twitchy and murderous hands of the State. Obama intends to sign this treaty within the week. The Senate has then to ratify it for it to become law.
Unfortunately, the UN Vienna Convention prevents legislative bodies from subverting a treaty from the time it is signed by a President until it is ratified by the Senate. It is in a quasi-state of ratification - just the justification that enemies of the Constitution like Schumer need to ramrod through laws that support the treaty. Obama is well aware of this.
If you remain unconvinced about the wickedness of disarming victims, I only need to point you to the Rwandan Genocide. Civilian disarmament set the stage for the 800,000 - 1,000,000 violent murders that took place there. Prior to the outbreak of violence, Rwanda was a model of UN disarmament and gun control. Eventually only the Hutu State had firearms. The rest of the story followed a predictable path, ending with Tutsis clogging rivers with their dead bodies.
Gun control advocates have innocent blood on their hands
If you still trust in the government's wisdom with firearms, I point you to the ATF's Operation Fast and Furious, which transferred US firearms to Mexican drug lords. Over 200 Mexicans have been murdered with these weapons.
Fast and Furious was designed to demonize U.S. gun shops - and provide statistics in time to justify signing the UN Arms Trade Treaty. It was a false flag that went sideways. (Note to the Administration: If you are going to attempt a false flag, get sharper tools than the ATF.)
Contact your Senator here. Let your congress-critter know not to ratify or vote for any law that supports Obama signing this treaty.
The life you may save might be your own.
