For one, all you have to do is read Declaration of Human Rights, which is part of the Charter of the UN, to see that it does not get its idea of rights from a higher source than govt, but that "it" or the UN is the the giver of rights. Then look at HR #3 which makes being "secure" a right. LOL! The last half are the points for global socialism. Those guys hate weapons because it's been under such regimes that kill the most people.
The Treaty starts out with this:
The States Parties to this Treaty,
Guided by the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations,
Then look at
Article 5: General Implementation
2. Each State Party shall establish and maintain a national control system,
including a national control list, in order to implement the provisions of this Treaty.
3. Each State Party is encouraged to apply the provisions of this Treaty to the
broadest range of conventional arms.
4. Each State Party, pursuant to its national laws, shall provide its national
control list to the Secretariat, which shall make it available to other States Parties.
States Parties are encouraged to make their control lists publicly available.
This list will not only go to our govt, which is unConstitutional, but to foreign regimes as well. The broadest range of conventional arms fall under it. Article 2: Scope (h)" Small arms and light weapons."
Article 4 is pretty nasty too as it makes "parts and components” of weapons part of it. Article 1 under Purpose is to "reduce human suffering."
Then it tells govts to “appropriate measures” to enforce the terms of the treaty with Article 16 providing for UN assistance including enforcement of “stockpile management, disarmament, demobilization and reintegration programmes.”
It is not just about exporting of weapons either.
You can get a pdf off the UN website. I don't know how to link a pdf.
Those in Congress speaking out are right to recognize this as confiscation.
