Anthony Martin posts: Investigators expose gun control in UN small arms treaty
A team of investigative reporters for Ammoland on Tuesday exposed previously unpublished documents showing that the controversial U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), also known as the “small arms treaty,” includes gun control for private “small arms and light weapons” as U.S. gun owners feared.
Dave Workman posts: Update: Final ATT draft sets up new U.N. gun control bureaucracy
The final text of the proposed global Arms Trade Treaty sets up a new global bureaucracy, called a “secretariat,” whose job will be to “assist States Parties in the effective implementation of this treaty.”
It is the “small arms and light weapons” that concern gun rights activists across the landscape, including Alan Gottlieb, founder and executive vice president of the Bellevue-based Second Amendment Foundation, and driving force behind the International Association for the Protection of Civilian Arms Rights (IAPCAR).
Earlier, Gottlieb told this column that the proposed treaty is a threat to Second Amendment victories over the past few years.
The document requires that, “Each State Party shall establish or update, as appropriate, and maintain a national control list that shall include the items that fall within (the above list), as defined on a national basis and, at a minimum, based on relevant United Nations instruments. Each State Party shall publish its control list to the extent permitted by national law.”
The document also requires participating nations to “establish and maintain a national control system to regulate the export of ammunition for conventional arms,’ and parts and components.
There is far more in this treaty, and it may also be read here.
Anyone got a copy of this treaty or is this a secret deal? July 27 is just a few weeks away. Why is this not a major story on every single news outlet? A few videos we hastily found to get the word out. Wake up people!
