Sucking Up To The U.N.

Obama seems totally removed from these united States.  The fact that We the People are not the world’s peace-keepers and that it is against our Constitution to be so, doesn’t seem to occur to Obama.  It is NOT our job to be responsible for Mexico’s or any other country’s gun problem and why Congress keeps making it so is not a mystery, it is a crime.  Bilking the citizens of this country to fund pet projects is the norm with these assholes in Congress and the presidency.  The arms aren’t coming from these united States.  There is more than ample proof of that.

Yet Obama is determined that WE MUST DO WHAT MEXICO CAN’T.  Hello!  Is there anybody HOME in the White House?  We will NOT allow any part of government to curtail our guns, to infringe on our sovereign rights to privacy, to own weapons and use them, or to incur the costs of enforcing the world’s gun problems.  Nor will we tolerate any government which claims we are responsible for another country’s problems.

Here is a serious question: WHAT GOOD WILL IT DO TO RATIFY THIS TREATY? Are criminals going to obey this treaty or buy guns legally?  Obama, will you please pull your head out of the place the sun can’t shine in???  Are you seriously STUPID OBAMA?  Have you lost your mind?  What is the point of this?

I swear to GOD the man needs a serious psych evaluation.  Not only is his legitimacy as POTUS in question, but now I have to wonder if having a law degree makes you stupid?   Or perhaps he is just on drugs?  What good will this treaty do?  Criminals do not obey laws. They can acquire guns in multiple ways.  Do you seriously believe this will have ANY impact on the criminal element?

INTER-AMERICAN CONVENTION AGAINST THE ILLICIT MANUFACTURING OF AND TRAFFICKING IN FIREARMS, AMMUNITION, EXPLOSIVES, AND OTHER RELATED MATERIALS

There is not one single thing in this document to curtail a criminal from purchasing, carrying, or manufacturing weapons.  NOT ONE!  Does being a lawyer make you stupid?  Does this driving need to be thought well of and be part of the New World Order preclude sense from being part of your life?  I’m so sick and tired of these morons being elected who do not respect the foundations of this country, its Constitution, or its history and Sovereignty.

These are the definitions of small arms and light weapons:

3. “Firearms”:

a. any barreled weapon which will or is designed to or may be readily converted to expel a bullet or projectile by the action of an explosive, except antique firearms manufactured before the 20th Century or their replicas; or
b. any other weapon or destructive device such as any explosive, incendiary or gas bomb, grenade, rocket, rocket launcher, missile, missile system, or mine.

4. “Ammunition”: the complete round or its components, including cartridge cases, primers, propellant powder, bullets, or projectiles that are used in any firearm.
5. “Explosives”: any substance or article that is made, manufactured, or used to produce an explosion, detonation, or propulsive or pyrotechnic effect, except:

a. substances and articles that are not in and of themselves explosive; or
b. substances and articles listed in the Annex to this Convention.

6. “Other related materials”: any component, part, or replacement part of a firearm, or an accessory which can be attached to a firearm.
7. “Controlled delivery”: the technique of allowing illicit or suspect consignments of firearms, ammunition, explosives, and other related materials to pass out of, through, or into the territory of one or more states, with the knowledge and under the supervision of their competent authorities, with a view to identifying persons involved in the commission of offenses referred to in Article IV of this Convention.

Seeing as how the Obama administration cannot, or will not, secure our ports and borders, HOW ARE YOU GOING TO ENFORCE THIS TREATY?  Before you can enforce any kind of treaty which demands that you know what is crossing your borders, you have to know what is crossing your borders. This is not possible at this time with the inability, or lack of desire, on the part of the Obama administration to enforce the laws of this country and secure our ports and borders.  Dumb and Dumber would be SO proud!

Who needs another treaty when we already have laws making it illegal to import illegal firearms???  I cannot believe just how stupid this makes Obama look!

And by the way Obama, we are NOT a country State.  We are a country made up of States!  Congress, pay attention!  If you want to have any hope of being re-elected you will think very carefully about ratifying this treaty when America already has laws to deal with this. We are NOT a subject of the United Nations.  ANY ATTEMPT TO MAKE US SO WILL MEAN YOUR OUSTER!  The U.N. is the most limp-wristed body of fools ever to call themselves leaders.  I have yet to see ANY leadership or decisive action come out of the U.N.

Our history is far too complex and wonderful to be subjugated to an outside authority.  Quit kissing someone else’s ass Obama!

Now this part would directly affect those manufacturers of weapons here in these united States.

Article VI

Marking of Firearms

1. For the purposes of identification and tracing of the firearms referred to in Article I.3.a, States Parties shall:

a. require, at the time of manufacture, appropriate markings of the name of manufacturer, place of manufacture, and serial number;

b. require appropriate markings on imported firearms permitting the identification of the importer’s name and address; and

c. require appropriate markings on any firearms confiscated or forfeited pursuant to Article VII.1 that are retained for official use.

2. The firearms referred to in Article I.3.b should be marked appropriately at the time of manufacture, if possible.

Cost to gun manufacturers would go up, cost to consumers would go up penalizing citizens who have done nothing to merit this extreme method which doesn’t prove that the firearms will be able to be tracked in the future.  There simply is no proof.  Here are the facts:

MICROSTAMPING

http://www.gunfacts.info

Background: Microstamping is a proposed means for imprinting unique serial numbers into cartridges fired from a gun. Similar to “ballistic fingerprinting,” it allegedly helps police identify what firearm might have been used in a crime. Microstamping uses precision equipment to remove microscopic amounts of metal from the tip of the firing pin

Myth: Independent testing by forensic technologists shows the technology is reliable

Fact: Firing pins are readily removable and swappable in most models of handguns, and inexpensive replacement parts. Criminals who file down serial numbers on the sides of guns won’t hesitate to file or exchange firing pins.

Fact: 46% of impressions ranked as “unsatisfactory” (i.e., illegible) after only ten rounds.

Myth: The cost per firearm will be cheap

Fact: The National Shooting Sports Foundation, the representative for firearm manufactures, estimates the cost will be upwards of $150 per firearm, more than tripling the price of self-protection and making it unaffordable for low-income people.4 The Brady Campaign dispute those with firearm manufacturing experience claiming micro-stamping would cost only 50¢?

4 “Etched bullets interest law enforcement”, The Record, September 25, 2006

Myth: The numbers will let police find the gun’s owner.

Fact: Most crime guns are stolen property, 5 which makes finding the original owner worthless.

5:“Armed and Considered Dangerous”, U.S. Department of Justice, 1986

BALLISTIC “FINGERPRINTING”

Myth: Every firearm leaves a unique “fingerprint” that can pinpoint the firearm used

Fact: A group of National Research Council scientists concluded that this has not yet been fully demonstrated. Their research suggests that current technology for collecting and comparing images may not reliably distinguish very fine differences.6

Fact: “Firearms that generate markings on cartridge casings can change with use and can also be readily altered by the users. They are not permanently defined like fingerprints or DNA.”7
Fact: “Automated computer matching systems do not provide conclusive results.”8
Fact: “Because bullets are severely damaged on impact, they can only be examined manually”.9
Fact: “Not all firearms generate markings on cartridge casings that can be identified back to the firearm.”10
Fact: The same gun will produce different markings on bullets and casings, and different guns can produce similar markings.11 Additionally, the type of ammunition actually used in a crime could differ from the type used when the gun was originally test-fired — a difference that could lead to significant error in suggesting possible matches.12
Fact: The rifle used in the Martin Luther King assassination was test fired 18 times under court supervision, and the results showed that no two bullets were marked alike.13 “Every test bullet was different because it was going over plating created by the previous bullet.”
Fact: “The common layman seems to believe that two bullets fired from the same weapon are identical, down to the very last striation placed on them by the weapon. The trained firearms examiner knows how far that is from reality.”14
A group of National Research Council scientists concluded that this has not yet been fully demonstrated. Their research suggests that current technology for collecting and comparing images may not reliably distinguish very fine differences.6

When will common sense occur to Obama?  < smacks forehead > Oh, that’s right, we are talking lawyers here!!!  When will he quite kissing the behinds of every other world leader?  Did a spineless simpering fool become POTUS?  When did these united States become the coward of the world’s stage?  Or its enforcers?

And what the HELLO is this????

Article VII

Confiscation or Forfeiture

1. States Parties undertake to confiscate or forfeit firearms, ammunition, explosives, and other related materials that have been illicitly manufactured or trafficked.

2. States Parties shall adopt the necessary measures to ensure that all firearms, ammunition, explosives, and other related materials seized, confiscated, or forfeited as the result of illicit manufacturing or trafficking do not fall into the hands of private individuals or businesses through auction, sale, or other *disposal.*

In other words these weapons cannot be resold but must be destroyed at the expense of the country in which they were found because they cannot be resold or auctioned off to recoup the costs of the investigation and actions taken.  Just BLOODY BRILLIANT!

And the bullshit just gets deeper and deeper!  This is an outrageous usurpation of Sovereignty.  This body of foolish, inept, luke-warm response morons think they can dictate to us what we will and will not do?  How dare they!!!

Article VIII

Security Measures

States Parties, in an effort to eliminate loss or diversion, undertake to adopt the necessary measures to ensure the security of firearms, ammunition, explosives, and other related materials imported into, exported from, or in transit through their respective territories.

Article IX

Export, Import, and Transit Licenses or Authorizations

1. States Parties shall establish or maintain an effective system of export, import, and international transit licenses or authorizations for transfers of firearms, ammunition, explosives, and other related materials.

2. States Parties shall not permit the transit of firearms, ammunition, explosives, and other related materials until the receiving State Party issues the corresponding license or authorization.

3. States Parties, before releasing shipments of firearms, ammunition, explosives, and other related materials for export, shall ensure that the importing and in-transit countries have issued the necessary licenses or authorizations.

4. The importing State Party shall inform the exporting State Party, upon request, of the receipt of dispatched shipments of firearms, ammunition, explosives, and other related materials.

I say again, these united States already have such laws which, if enforced, will take care of these issues. We do NOT need to ratify a treaty from the united nations in order to gain control of *arms and munitions*. We already have laws aplenty. What we need is enforcement of the EXISTING LAWS! Something for which the Obama administration seems to lack the necessary conviction to do. Had they secured our ports and borders we would be able to fulfill these clauses, but we can’t because Obama refuses to take the steps necessary.   The lack of conviction where our ports and borders are concerned is appalling.

All this treaty does is reiterate what we already have laws about.  It is ridiculous to even consider this until or unless we secure our ports and borders.  Otherwise this is nothing more than empty rhetoric being spouted by a self important idiot.

We'll be watching you even more!!!

We'll be watching you even more!!!

Article 13 seeks to make government even bigger and more all seeing!

Article XIII

Exchange of Information

1. States Parties shall exchange among themselves, in conformity with their respective domestic laws and applicable treaties, relevant information on matters such as:

a. authorized producers, dealers, importers, exporters, and, whenever possible, carriers of firearms, ammunition, explosives, and other related materials;

b. the means of concealment used in the illicit manufacturing of or trafficking in firearms, ammunition, explosives, and other related materials, and ways of detecting them;

c. routes customarily used by criminal organizations engaged in illicit trafficking in firearms, ammunition, explosives, and other related materials;

d. legislative experiences, practices, and measures to prevent, combat, and eradicate the illicit manufacturing of and trafficking in firearms, ammunition, explosives, and other related materials; and

e. techniques, practices, and legislation to combat money laundering related to illicit manufacturing of and trafficking in firearms, ammunition, explosives, and other related materials.

2. States Parties shall provide to and share with each other, as appropriate, relevant scientific and technological information useful to law enforcement, so as to enhance one another’s ability to prevent, detect, and investigate the illicit manufacturing of and trafficking in firearms, ammunition, explosives, and other related materials and prosecute those involved therein.

3. States Parties shall cooperate in the tracing of firearms, ammunition, explosives, and other related materials which may have been illicitly manufactured or trafficked. Such cooperation shall include accurate and prompt responses to trace requests.

Just what part of any of this doesn’t the united States already do?  How is it that we are so inept that we cannot figure out for ourselves what needs to be done?  What part of this don’t we already do besides the marking of arms and ammo???  Big brother is just going to get bigger and he is big enough already.  This flies in the face of our Constitution once again!!!

Myth: A database of ballistic profiles will allow police to trace gun crimes

Fact: The National Research Council deemed a national ballistics database as impractical due to practical limitations of current technology for generating and comparing images of ballistic markings.15
Fact: Maryland’s ballistics database “is not doing anything”16 and “has not met the mission statement of the state police.”17 In the first five years of implementation, it failed to lead to any criminal arrest or convictions, despite collecting over 80,000 specimens at a cost of $2,567,633.18
Fact:
More than 70% of armed career criminals get their guns from “off-the-street sales” and “criminal acts” such as burglaries19, and 71% of these firearms are stolen.20 Tracing these firearms will not lead to the criminals, as the trail stops at the last legal owner.
Fact: Computer image matching of cartridges fails between 38-62% of the time, depending on whether the cartridges are from the same or different manufacturers.21
Fact: “Automated computer matching systems do not provide conclusive results” requiring that “potential candidates be manually reviewed”.22
Fact: Criminals currently remove serial numbers from stolen guns to hide their origin. The same simple shop tools can change a ballistic profile within minutes. “The minor alteration required less than 5 minutes of labor”.23 Criminals will make changing ballistic profiles part of their standard procedures.

In a time of economic depression Obama is once again going to force We the People to absorb the costs involved in this treaty.

These united States need to quit funding this body.  Co-operation between countries can be arranged at any time, but knowing how often these united States are required to supply this, that, and the other thing, I foresee us absorbing the costs of training other nations in our methods.  Another means of making us a global enforcer in direct violation of our Constitution.

And here is a statement from Norway and Ghana:

I’ll just close by adding a picture of my feelings towards this treaty.  Have a nice day!
