The UN Arms Trade Treaty should alarm any liberty-loving citizen. Every UN treaty requires the participating country to turn over its sovereignty regarding that particular issue. An agreement with the UN removes the autonomy of the nation and the independence of the people to make their own laws free of UN control and dictate. The UN Arms Trade Treaty is no exception. It is meant to regulate the sale and possession of small arms, both within and without the nation. Patrick Henry gave this clear warning in his day,
Where in the founding documents of the United States (not Nations) of America is an outside agency allowed to challenge our nation’s sovereignty? In the 60s and 70s, billboards and hand-painted signs demanding the United Nations get out of the US were frequently seen alongside the highways. Traveling Interstate 25 in Southern Colorado you couldn’t miss the signs where a rancher raged against the UN for stealing his land…early signs of an agenda not public for years to come. Where did those protest signs go? Where is the outrage against the UN’s interference in the US and individual states? We are being invaded by a compilation of countries, to include known enemies. We aren’t meeting them at the border with an armed force…no, we are actually meeting them at the border with open arms!
