Tony Newbill sent me a link that goes to message from Representative George Braun (R-GA). The essence of Braun’s message is that the U.N. is pushing for an international treaty that would track small arms globally. The public intent is to limit access to (Islamic) terrorists; however the reality is there are no amount laws on a national or global level that will prevent terrorists and criminals from acquiring and using weapons. If you don’t realize this then you must get your head out of the sand.
Braun’s concern is that the international tracking of small arms will lead to infringing the U.S. Constitution’s SECOND Amendment which enables all citizens of America the right to bear arms for self-protection. So if a Democratic Party President (uh like Barack Hussein Obama) and the still Democratic Party majority in the Senate pushed for ratification of a small arms treaty, I am certain this is one that will go to the Supreme Court. The question before SCOTUS would be: Does the Constitution trump Senatorial ratified treaties or do Senatorial ratified treaties trump the Constitution? I personally am unaware if SCOTUS has ever tackled an issue of the Constitution vs. International Treaties. I’ll let you guys to that research.
I’ll share the link that Newbill sent: http://www.nagr.org/UN_lp_survey2.aspx?pid=key02&gclid=CLC0_YiAk6YCFRZy5QodfAdvnw
I am going to cross post the “Submit Survey” link because it goes into greater detail than the link Newbill sent to me. Also the “Submit Survey” link contains ways to donate money to efforts to prevent U.N. infringement on American sovereignty and the American Constitution.

Thanks for your Official Firearms Sovereignty Survey
Dr. Paul Braun (R-GA-10)
I’m Congressman Paul Broun and I’m writing to make sure gun owners like you are prepared to face this assault on our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
But your survey alone is not enough to win this battle.
NAGR must alert and mobilize millions of gun owners against this anti-gun treaty. But contacting a few thousand like minded Americans can cost a few thousand dollars!
That’s why I hope I can count on you to chip in just $10 or $20 towards this fight.
I want you to understand just how dangerous this global gun ban is. Please bear with me for a moment.
Ultimately, the UN’s Small Arms Treaty is designed to register, ban and CONFISCATE firearms owned by private citizens like YOU.
So far, the gun-grabbers have successfully kept the exact wording of their new scheme under wraps.
But looking at previous versions of the UN’s Small Arms Treaty, you and I can get a good idea of what’s likely in the works.
If passed by the UN and ratified by the U.S. Senate, the UN’s Small Arms Treaty would almost certainly FORCE national governments to:
· Enact tougher licensing requirements, making law-abiding citizens cut through even more bureaucratic red tape just to own a firearm legally;
· CONFISCATE and DESTROY ALL “unauthorized” civilian firearms (all firearms owned by the government are excluded, of course);
· BAN the trade, sale and private ownership of ALL semi-automatic weapons;
· Create an INTERNATIONAL gun registry, setting the stage for full-scale gun CONFISCATION.
I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that this is NOT a fight we can afford to lose.
Ever since its founding almost 65 years ago, the United Nations has been hell-bent on bringing the United States to its knees.
To the petty dictators and one-worlders who control the UN, the U.S. isn’t a “shining city on a hill” — it’s an affront to their grand totalitarian designs for the globe.
These anti-gun globalists know that so long as Americans remain free to make our own decisions without being bossed around by big government bureaucrats, they’ll NEVER be able to seize the worldwide oppressive power they crave.
And the UN’s apologists also know the most effective way to finally strip you and me of ALL our freedoms would be to DESTROY our gun rights.
That’s why I’ve decided to stand with the National Association for Gun Rights in their opposition to this assault on our Constitution.
The truth is, there’s no time to waste.
You and I have to be prepared for this fight to move FAST.
The fact is, the last thing the gun-grabbers at the UN and in Washington, D.C. want is for you and me to have time to react and mobilize gun owners to defeat this radical legislation.
They’ve made that mistake before, and we’ve made them pay, defeating EVERY attempt to ram the “Treaty on Small Arms” into law since the mid-1990s.
But this time, time won’t be on our side.
In fact, we’re likely to only have a few days or weeks to defeat the treaty.
Worse, there’s no longer a pro-gun Senate to kill ratification of the treaty.
There’s no longer a President in the White House who has stated opposition to the treaty.
And you and I know good and well how Germany, Great Britain, France, Communist China or the rest of the anti-gun members of the United Nations are going to vote.
So our ONE AND ONLY CHANCE of stopping the UN’s Small Arms Treaty is during the ratification process in the U.S. Senate.
As you know, it takes 67 Senate votes to ratify a treaty.
So rounding up 34 votes to kill this thing should be easy, right?
Unfortunately, that couldn’t be further from the truth.
First, you know just as well as I do how few Senators are truly “pro-gun.”
Second, even with the partisan rancor in Washington, D.C., many Senators get “queasy” about killing treaties for fear of “embarrassing” the President — especially with “international prestige” at stake.
They look at ratifying treaties much like approving Presidents’ Supreme Court nominees.
And remember how many Senators turned their back on us and voted to confirm anti-gun Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor?
A dozen more only voted against Sotomayor after receiving massive grassroots pressure from the folks back home.
So if we’re going to defeat the UN’s Small Arms Treaty we have to turn the heat up on the U.S. Senate now before it’s too late!
Do you believe the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Second Amendment are the supreme law of the land?
Do you believe any attempt by the United Nations to subvert or supersede your Constitutional rights must be opposed?
You see, your survey puts you squarely on the record AGAINST the U.N.’s Small Arms Treaty.
But it will take hundreds of thousands, even millions, of pro-Second Amendment Americans rallying to the cause to stop the globalists.
That’s why along with your signed survey, I hope you’ll chip in just $10 or $20 to help finance this battle.
With your contribution, the National Association for Gun Rights will immediately begin contacting Second Amendment supporters to turn up the heat on targeted U.S. Senators.
Direct mail. Phones. E-mail. Blogs. Billboards. Guest editorials. Press conferences. Hard-hitting newspaper, radio and TV ads. The whole nine yards.
Of course, if NAGR can raise enough resources, their goal is to expand this full program to ALL of their target states.
But that’s not going to be cheap, and we may not have much time.
In fact, if we’re going to defeat the UN’s so-called “Small Arms Treaty,” we have to start NOW!
Every dollar counts in this fight.
Inaction could very well lead to defeat and the loss of our right to keep and bear arms.
Whether you can afford $100 or just $10 or $20, please contribute what you can.
It’s critical we do all we can.
Thank you in advance for contributing your time and money towards defending our Second Amendment rights.
For Freedom and Liberty,
Dr. Paul Broun, M.D.
U.S. Congressman (R-GA)
The Obama Administration just announced they would be working hand in glove with the UN to pass a new GLOBAL, “Small Arms Treaty.”
In fact, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton just announced the Obama Administration would be working hand in glove with the UN to pass a new “Small Arms Treaty.”
That’s why it’s vital you and I fight back IMMEDIATELY.
Are Obamanites Conspiring against the 2nd Amendment?
