Quote:Upon publication of the document, Woolcott informed delegates that they have 24 hours to confer with their respective governments and then report tomorrow for a final vote.

Apart from a couple of technical reviews by the drafting committee scheduled to be completed by 2:00 p.m., this is the last revision of the document, and Woolcott said nations must now “take it or leave it.”

...

Perhaps the most immediate threat to the rights of gun owners in the Arms Trade Treaty is found in Article 5. Under the title of “General Implementation,” Article 5 mandates that all countries participating in the treaty “shall establish and maintain a national control system, including a national control list.”

This list should “apply the provisions of this Treaty to the broadest range of conventional arms.”

Should the U.S. delegation vote in favor of this treaty (and President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have both signaled that they should), the federal government will be obligated to begin compiling a list of who owns, buys, sells, trades, or transfers any of the weapons included in the list provided above, as well as the ammunition, parts, and components of those weapons.

After creating this database, the federal government will be required under the provisions of Article 5(4) of the Arms Trade Treaty to “provide its national control list to the Secretariat, which shall make it available to other States Parties.”

That’s right. The UN demands that the list of gun and ammo owners not only be in the hands of our own government, but be sent to foreign regimes, as well.

Americans are right to recognize this registry as the first step toward confiscation.

reading this, there's no way kerry or obama can rubber stamp this without facing angry pitchforks.

I don't know. I would have thought that about a good deal of things coming from washington these days.

I think this could cause a great deal of trouble. With emotions running high right now, something like this could be a breaking point.

Neither of them cares. They just want the power. And in their sick, narcissistic brains, this gives them more.

I beg everyone on here to write and call your Senators. Tell them they must vote NO if it comes to a vote for ratification on the Senate floor. This treaty is an absolute nightmare for our Second Amendment rights.

The treaty was NOT finalized, Iran, North Korea and Russia all voted against the final language. Having said that there is still the possibility that one of the nations that is in agreement with the language could bring it to the floor for a vote. We must all remember though that Russia, because it is a permanent member of the security council, does have the right to veto it even if it does pass with everyone else. This is a very intricate situation and does not mean that we should just lay back. However if it does come to the US Senate for a vote, and it would only need to be voted on by the Senate, Toomey and Bobby Casey are the people you need to contact, and Bobby has shown us just how pro 2A he is.
