Sun Journal Letter to the Editor: A threat approaches…

There are forces at work in our nation’s Capitol that wish to dismantle our Constitution and will do so by bypassing Congress by any means possible.
Perhaps the most dangerous threat to our liberties comes from the United Nations Small Arms treaty which is supported by the Obama administration and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Our Second Amendment reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Our Founding fathers lacked trust in any government including our own to respect the rights of free citizens. They placed in the hands of the law abiding individual(s) the means by which to forcefully oppose a tyrannical government in our Nations future, both foreign and domestic.
The Oath of Office for the President of the United States affirms this in these words: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic;”
The U.N. Small Arms Treaty is going to be used to circumvent our Second Amendment and eventually our total Bill of Rights. They believe that a one world government is sovereign whereas Americans believe that the individual is sovereign.
Appearing before the U.N. Small Arms committee last summer, Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the NRA, had this to say in regards to the make up of the committee:
“Their member list reads like a who’s who of human rights abusers. I was in New York to testify before this committee. I stood in front of representatives from China, North Korea, Cuba, Syria, Sudan — all those great bastions of freedom.”
Under our laws all treaties must be passed by a 2/3 majority in the Senate; no problem you say! Yet we have a president that just bypassed the Senate when, by Executive Order 13547, ratified the LOST Treaty. A Google search for Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) ratified by Obama’s Executive Order 13547 will support this.
We live in dangerous times and it’s becoming obvious that elements within our government are out of control. The man in the oval office has no problem side stepping the legislative branch of government when it suits his agenda.
Perhaps Samuel Adams said it best when he wrote, “Let the Constitution never be construed to authorize Congress ... to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms.”
A closing thought. America is still a beacon for the rest of the World … proof that ordinary people can be trusted with extraordinary power and that set free, we can live in peace, govern ourselves and control our own fates.
