UN Small Arms Treaty Passes While Media Sleeps

The United Nations Small Arms Treaty passed in its second session. The Media was silent over its passage.

According to the UN’s press release,

Concluding its two-week session today, the second United Nations conference to review the 2001 Programme of Action on trafficking in small arms and light weapons adopted a consensus outcome document that highlighted the international community’s renewed commitment to preventing, combating and eradicating the illicit trade.

Balderdash on this distraction!

No treaty means a whit to the people of the this Republic called the united States of America, unless it is first and foremost, totally Constitutional!!

Anything less is in fact, NO TREATY, and it is the duty of the citizen to DISREGARD such!

Anything less is but fraud, tyranny, and actions of criminals and tyrants!

Save your brain for rooting out the perfidious crooks from office for daring against their 'sacred oaths' in the first place!

Whoa. Change that headline.

I thought the Senate had passed a ratifying resolution. The cursed thing does not "pass" unless the US Senate passes on it. By a 2/3rds majority. Don't scare me like that.

Don't comply

stand your grounds against the murderers that try to enforce it.

But did Congress ratify it?

There could still be time.

I don't care if they do pass

I don't care if they do pass it. I will never give up my firearms period. At some point you have to make a stand.

Senate approves or rejects treaty Reresolution of Ratification.

The Senate does not ratify treaties — Senate approves or rejects a resolution of ratification. If the resolution passes, then ratification takes place when the instruments of ratification are formally exchanged between the United States and foreign powers.

The Constitution provides that the president "shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two-thirds of the Senators present concur" (Article II, section 2). The Constitution's framers gave the Senate a share of the treaty power in order to give the president the benefit of the Senate's advice and counsel, check presidential power, and safeguard the sovereignty of the states by giving each state an equal vote in the treaty making process....

Most treaties submitted to the Senate have received its advice and consent to ratification. During its first 200 years, the Senate approved more than 1,500 treaties and rejected only 21. A number of these, including the Treaty of Versailles, were rejected twice. Most often, the Senate has simply not voted on treaties that its leadership deemed not to have sufficient support within the Senate for approval, and in general these treaties have eventually been withdrawn. At least 85 treaties were eventually withdrawn because the Senate never took final action on them. Treaties may also remain in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for extended periods, since treaties are not required to be resubmitted at the beginning of each new Congress. There have been instances in which treaties have lain dormant within the committee for years, even decades, without action being taken.

Luckily

Luckily a treaty must be approved by 2/3rds of the senate. Anyone have an idea on whether or not the 47 republicans in the senate, who have a perfect opportunity to stop this in it's tracks, plan on voting against it?

Any Republican who wants to

Any Republican who wants to get reelected and keep his six-figure salary isn't going to vote for gun control.

About 1/3 of the Dems

About 1/3 of the Dems wouldn't vote for it either. As much as I despise the NRA, they've been pretty successful at what they did.

Should read: "While the media

diverts and distracts". The masses fascination with Kate Middletons boobies is much less threatening to the schemes of the NWO than them knowing that foreign interests plan to make them defenseless cattle less dangerous to fleece and cull.

Exactly

The media is not sleeping. They no longer report. They deliberately filter this news out.

Censoring bad words was promioted to get censors paid.

Censorship is for our ship-of-state. Laws were created to justify payment for our own self censorship.

We pay politicians to restrict us. We pay censors so that we don't have to listen to what they don't want us to hear.

This passed in the UN, but not in the United States.

I think this treaty has more to do with "monopoly control of black market arms sales" by the biggest thugs of all....the black hats arms dealers in our own government.

Has the UN investigated how any of the arms ended up in Libya, Syria etc ?

You see a string of 50 cal bullets each costing more than a libyan makes in one days wages..

Where did all this CIA propped up regime change come from ?

Wow,

now this Benghazi attack is starting to make sense. I thought it was a coincidence that it happened on the anniversary of 911, but now realize it was just an attention diverter.

I think you're on to something.

I always thought Charlie Sheen's flip out was a distraction from the lead up to bombing Libya.

Celebrity "feuds" always seem to be diversions from serious events as well.

PS. And add to that almost anything having to do with Lindsay Lohan.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Never really thought of that

But it makes sense
