UN Arms Treaty Dead (for now)

http://www.washingtontimes.com/blog/robbins-report/2012/jul/...

Excerpt:

The proposed treaty, which raised considerable domestic opposition from gun rights advocates in the United States, died before it had a chance to become a threat. As a delegate from China observed, "C'est la vie et la vie c'est ça." edit~ Translation: "That's life and the life that's right."

The UN may take up the matter at a later date, but for now it is on indefinite hiatus.

And I'll bet it broke Hillary's heart.

Boo-hoo

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

The original story I read yesterday was different

I don't think dead is the right word for this one. "The US needs more time" and a letter from 90 countries saying they were ready at a drop of a pin to sign on are some things that lead me to believe this thing's not dead yet.
John Bolton has consistently stopped this thing for a long time and he's getting older. Will his replacement be as cavalier? I imagine he's not a well-liked character among the commie bosses in DC on this issue.

I was wondering what had happened

I was really surprised not to see anything on the DP about it yesterday. I had warned my friends about it and I was really freaked out, but it looks like we are good for now.

I posted it yesterday PDC3378 but it was lost in the GJ

shuffle.

Didn't see that one fireant

I just used the integrated system that notifies you if the exact link was posted when I posted it. Seems like both are not getting that much attention. I thought people would be jumping up and down for joy hooting and a hollering over this.

Chalk one up for liberty...

Glad the Movement was here to stand up for the Constitution. In past times, this thing may have been masqueraded as the "Preserve the 2nd Amendment Treaty."

All I can say is...

...HALLELUJAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
