U.N. arms treaty a direct threat to American gun ownership
Quote:Oxfam America has long served as a reliable cheerleader for nearly all misguided United Nations policy. However, Oxfam America President Raymond Offenheiser’s Friday op-ed (“President should ignore fear mongering and sign arms treaty”) is an exceptional illustration of this blind allegiance.

Offenheiser wants us to simultaneously believe the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty is both the single most important tool to cracking down on war crimes and that the treaty has absolutely no teeth whatsoever. That’s twisted logic for sure. Here’s the truth.

The Arms Trade Treaty directly threatens the Second Amendment rights and privacy of American gun owners. Article 12 of the treaty “encourages” signatory nations to compile “records” of all “end users” of firearms imported into their county — and to supply this sensitive personal information to the government of the exporting country.

if you bought a shotgun made by an Italian manufacturer, the U.S. government would keep a record of your purchase and provide your information to the Italian government.

This is gun registration on an international level, plain and simple.

Should the U.S. refuse to take part in this international gun registry, other nations could be required to ban the export of firearms to the United States.

Registration info is already shared via etrace to over 2,000 agencies worldwide. 35+ countries where the Tiahrt Amendment has no authority. The info on US first purchasers available contains Name, address, date of birth, place of birth, height, weight, sex, driver's license information, vehicle information and SS when provided on the 4473.

So, whats to worry about?
The Second Amendment does not GIVE us the right. It tells the gov they can not infringe our right.
