Gun Control and the United States Government

Does the United States government want to take away our guns? It would seem so and I’m not talking about just specific types of guns, but all guns. Why else would President Obama, Former Secretary of State Clinton and Secretary of State Kerry have put so much effort into getting an arms trade treaty with the United Nations signed? In my opinion, it’s the first step toward getting a federal-level gun control law put into place. Why would the federal government want a gun control law in place? It’s just one more piece in the puzzle needed to control the population.

The 2nd Amendment to the United States Constitution

handgun - gun control Our 2nd Amendment right, the right to bear arms according to the Constitution of the United States, is in jeopardy all the time and just discussing arms with anyone outside of the United States is cause for suspicion. The 2nd Amendment is very short, yet concise:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Despite interpretations to the contrary, the 2nd Amendment is referring to private citizens and our right to bear arms. There isn’t any mention about gun control in any possible interpretation. If we don’t have the right to bear arms, then we can’t form a militia. Why or when would private citizens need to form a militia? When the government is out of control, like it is now.

Guns and Gun Control

The purpose of registering a firearm is so that criminal activity involving such can be traced to the owner. That’s all well and good, but it also means that guns belonging to innocent people can be traced as well. There’s a problem with this: Criminals can get guns without registering.

The anti-gun crowd has no idea what would happen, or could happen, if the entire population (excluding the government) suddenly becomes disarmed. I can tell you part of it and it isn’t pretty. The criminals would still have guns and so would the government. What would stop either party from taking what they want from you? If you don’t trust either party (and I don’t), go ahead and sell your guns while you can still get money for them because one day, they could be taken from you.

I have never owned any kind of firearm, although I’m proficient in the use of rifles and pistols due to my annual training with them during military service. Even though I don’t feel the need to have any kind of firearm in my possession, it’s a constitutional right for me to have one. Part of my 20 years of military service was to enforce that right (for me and everyone else). I, for one, am not ready to allow the government the opportunity to use gun control to take that right from us.

You may scoff at my insinuations, but you can’t ignore them. Every allowed infringement on the Constitution makes it a little easier to get the next one into place, just like the violations of the 4th Amendment the TSA is perpetrating now.

This year, it could be a treaty between the United States and the United Nations. Next year, we could be fighting for our very right to survive.

Gun Control Failure by the Current Administration

I started paying attention to all of these treaty negotiations in 2010. The negotiations collapsed a few months before the 2012 presidential election. I thought it was over. I was wrong.

Like a snake in the grass, President Obama acted on a new draft of the international arms treaty within hours after getting re-elected in 2012. Read this for more information: After Obama win, U.S. backs new U.N. arms treaty talks

In September of 2013, Secretary of State Kerry signed a UN arms treaty. Luckily, as of October of 2013, the treaty is dead on arrival.

In this case, failure is a good thing. But don’t get complacent and start thinking more attempts at gun control are going to end. In January of 2013, President Obama signed 23 executive orders and urged Congress to create new control laws. I would not put it past him to sign another executive order to put the UN Arms Trade Treaty into effect while everyone’s attention is focused on something else.
