U.N. is threat to Second Amendment
I commend Mr. Joe Starbuck for his respectful and reasoned July 4 response to my June 25 letter; and note his patience with our often difficult political disputes. I agree that circumstances might allow an intervening election to quash a cause for concern before it becomes a cause of regret.
Four years ago candidate Clinton boasted to supporters that with Democrats in control of Congress and The White House “we can do anything we want.” Sen. Reid speechified before the Senate that Republicans’ desire for debating issues “sabotaged the democratic process.” Reps. Pelosi and Hoyer entered into the House Record that opposition to this administration’s agenda was “un-American.” Obama’s left face repeatedly says we don’t know the facts and his further left face hides them behind privilege. This from the top down bullying reminds me of King George.
The U.N. has calendared a month to construct Small Arms Treaties (SAT) even as we discuss risk to the Second Amendment, a risk made serious by this administration’s antipathy to the democratic process. I misspoke when I said on June 25, “Twelve Democrat Senators have signed a separate opposition letter.” They actually signed a list of objectionable elements in Obama’s SAT proposals and a slate of remedies that would facilitate ratification. If Obama yields to this group, and the U.N. produces, on schedule, pacts comprising those revisions, our peril continues. The Senate’s Democrat majority could ratify treaties despite objections of the Republican minority months before the Jan. 3 seating of a new Senate Class Dedicated to restoring the Power of the People.
Our sovereignty may depend on U.N. nonperformance.
