The UN and Obama Versus Gun Owners

June 8, 2010
John Lott

Gun owners might not feel besieged right now, but they should be very concerned. [Recently] the Obama administration announced its support for the UN Small Arms Treaty. This treaty poses real risks for freedom and safety in the United States as well as the rest of the world.

According to the U.N., guns used in armed conflicts cause 300,000 deaths worldwide every year. Their proposed solution is a simple one. Keep rebels from getting guns by requiring that countries ‘prevent, combat and eradicate’ what those countries define as ‘the illicit trade in small arms.’

The UN’s solution isn’t too surprising when one looks at the long list of notorious totalitarian regimes, such as Syria, Cuba, Rwanda, Vietnam, Zimbabwe, and Sierra Leone, which support these ‘reforms.’ But not all insurgencies are ‘bad.’ To ban providing guns to rebels in totalitarian countries is like arguing that there is never anything such as a just war.

… Political scientist Rudy Rummel estimates that 262 million people were murdered by their own government during the last century — that is 2.6 million per year. This includes genocide, the murder of people for political reasons, and mass murder. Even if all 300,000 deaths from armed conflicts can be blamed on the small arms trade, an obviously false claim, people have much more to worry about from their governments.

… The Small Arms Treaty is just a back door way for the Obama administration trying to force through gun control regulations. With the huge standing ovation that House and Senate Democrats recently gave Mexican President Calderon for his advocacy of a new so-called ‘Assault Weapons Ban,’ Americans who care about self-defense have been put on notice.

    Without Guns How would Americans Resist An Unconstitutional U.S. Government Takeover?

    Obama never clarified what he meant when he stated in July 2008:
    “We cannot continue to rely on our military to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.”

    Obama’s recently expanded Veterans and other Corps and Obamacare provisions buried in the health bill mandated a 6,000-man army on U.S. Soil; all the aforementioned changes including the new army, are so broadly defined they could subsequently include most any function of government. Hitler’s Germany in the 1930’s during hard economic times, established “Civilian Volunteer Patrols” for the purported purpose of helping Citizens and to protect the Homeland. But shortly after Hitler’s patrols were established, the civilian volunteers were transformed into a neighborhood political enforcement and informant arm” of the Nazi Party working with Hitler’s private secret Police, the Gestapo. During this period, years before the Gestapo was consolidated with the German Government, the Gestapo arrested Citizens and confiscated private property with no legal authority. Gestapo is the contraction of Geheime Staatspolizei for “Secret State Police.”

    In 1934 the Gestapo was placed under SS leader Heinrich Himmler Chief of German Police. Then in 1939 all German Police agencies were put under the control of the “Reich Main Security Office” the equivalent of U.S. Homeland Security.

    It will be interesting to see if Obama intends to use the new Obamacare 6,000-man army on U.S. Soil in violation of the Constitution.

    Should it be expected U.S. private mercenary companies now paid extremely well by U.S. Government to provide security in Iraq, might attempt to secure contracts from the Obama Government to provide security in U.S. Cities, should America’s recession worsen causing crime and riots like those seen in Greece?

    There appears to be nothing to stop U.S. Government deploying “American Citizens that are mercenaries” on U.S. soil to assist regular police or to accompany a “National Police Stabilization Force” alleged suggested in a recent NGO Rand Corporation Report provided the U.S. Army. The suggested “National Police Stabilization Force” would appear controlled by the Feds and might include in its ranks with federal police, local and state law enforcement. What would happen to State Rights and what Laws and Jurisdiction would be used to prosecute state Citizens arrested by a National Police Stabilization Force? Could this proposed National Police Stabilization Force involve Obama’s new 6,000-man army? A National Police Force could potentially be sent by Obama into any State with the approval of its governor, against the wishes of its Citizens? To clarify the Rand Corporation report visit:

    Several U.S. private security companies now work with U.S. law enforcement agencies in America under federal quasi-government contracts, sharing information, locate for arrest individuals and share with government assets they cause to be forfeited from U.S. Citizens. In retrospect, Hitler created the Gestapo a secret “Private police organization that worked closely with German police to arrest and eliminate anyone that disagreed with the Nazi Government and to seize huge amounts of property from German Citizens.

    Should the Obama Government contract private mercenaries on American soil; deploy in America Obama’s new 6,000-man army or create his proposed “civilian national security force” or similar force; it should be expected that any of these forces during a declared emergency that might last years, would discard your Constitutional rights including the Fourth Amendments, violate your private records and seize your arms. After the Nazi Government declared a State emergency against the Communists in 1933, Nazi officials proceeded without warrants to search Germans and their homes, confiscate their private arms, imprison Germans Citizens without cause and confiscate their property; Hitler’s volunteer corps often moved into confiscated homes.
