The Obama Administration and their allies among the Democrats in the House and the Senate continue to argue for strict gun control, and take whatever steps they can to continue moving in that direction.
With just over two years left in the administration of President Barack Obama, and with his promise, some might view it as a threat, to use the powers of his office to make changes he believes are best to move the country towards the vision he and his supporters have for the future of America (that fundamental transformation he told us about), protecting Americans’ right to bear arms will be even more important as the Obama Presidency winds down.
The president has made no secret of his interest in enacting more stringent gun control across the board in America. While he smiles and tries to cloak his goals in the guise of a “reasonable approach to gun control”, he quietly and behind the scenes schemes with his Attorney General Eric Holder to use whatever tactics they can to achieve as much as they can, with little regard for what the majority of the American people want.
The United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, regulating the international trade in conventional arms, from small arms to battle tanks, combat aircraft and warships, will enter into force on December 24th of this year. The Obama Administration has fully supported this treaty. While it violates the Second Amendment of U.S. Constitution and likely won’t be ratified by the Senate and enacted into law in this country, it serves as a symbolic victory for the anti-gun politicians in Washington, D.C.
