Giving Up U.S. Sovereignty Its Your guns

Reluctant to Grab Guns Overtly, Governments Aim for Ammunition
Guns and ammo are private property, emblems of practical self-reliance, and a touchstone of our Constitution. That’s why whether the issue of someone being “good on gun rights” is such an important litmus test of whether or not they truly respect individual rights and limited government.
Put another way, gun rights are a freedom-defining issue, and the American political elite knows it.
That’s why a frontal federal assault on taking away Americans’ gun rights hasn’t happened yet. Too many people own guns to make outright confiscation politically feasible. Which is why the enemies of gun rights have trained their sights on a devious end run: restricting access to ammunition.
This backdoor assault on the Second Amendment comes from all levels of government – local, state, and federal.
Feds Shoot for Gun Dealers and Ammo Makers
In January, after U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords was shot in Arizona by a deranged lunatic (who is in the process of being punished), the Obama administration exploited the tragedy to renew efforts to undermine your gun rights. Some ongoing proposals include:
U.S Gun and Ammunition
  • Banning high-capacity ammunition clips;
  • Restricting certain shotguns from being imported to the U.S.;
  • Requiring dealers to report multiple sales to the same person of certain kinds of rifles;
  • “Fingerprint” fired bullet casings and/or force ammunition companies to place serial numbers on each shell casing manufactured.
Even the EPA tried to step in. Last year, EPA considered a petition to ban lead ammunition under the Toxic Substance Control Act of 1976. Fortunately, they soon realized that controlling and regulating ammunition is outside of their jurisdiction. But their regulatory attempt is revealing.
Control ammo, control guns. Back in 2009, the Department of Defense changed its policy about selling spent casings from military rounds. It decided casings could only be purchased from the military if they were “mutilated.”
Giving Up U.S. Sovereignty. Another “under the radar” scheme the Obama administration is considering is entering into a United Nations arms trade treaty. If the U.S. enters into this kind of treaty, the U.N. could:
  • Impose international gun-control laws on Americans and trump U.S. law;
  • Regulate the manufacture, possession, and sales of firearms and ammo on U.S. soil – possibly superseding the Second Amendment;
  • Force U.S. gun owners to submit to an international gun registry;
  • Push other severe and appalling restrictions onto Americans living on U.S. soil.
