When the systemic breakdown crap hits the fan in ther very near future, you will realize how stupid you are not to own firearms.

Which would be a good step forward on the issue.

Why should we ratify this? If any thing we should be hauling them Out of this country. Either that or they should at least punish Arabs countries like Iran for helping terrorist groups in Israel and Egypt. The UN IS A JOKE.

Glad I cancelled my membership. Did that after Columbine and that old fart Charlotn Heston’s “my cold dead hands” b.s.

Notice all the criminal-types bemoaning “arms treaties”. These are the same types of socio-paths that bemoan taxes, public schools, finance laws, or anything else based on commone sense.

The NRA serves the Gun Mfr industry. Anyone who really thinks they are protecting the 2nd Amd is a fool.

The ones that should not have arms do not abide by the treaty, while those that should have arms abide by the treaty.

The facts no one wants to read.

Censorship is evil.

Are you serious? Take a look at who is involved in this business. There are some very nasty people who call themselves arms brokers. They are well financed and often protected by government officials who are in for a cut. This is just more election year tripe.

The NRA now has created a country with the highest murder and incarceration rate in the world. That’s how they define “free” I guess.

After two generations under a military dictatorship, the US is living proof that Joe Goebbels’ methods continue to work. The average American has long since been brainwashed, he’s laughing in his grave.

You know, like what just happened in Mexico. Are they planning to just stand there and watch, hoping to call the nice police officers when it’s all over…if they’re still alive?!

Do home invasions not happen in their world? Do people not get raped, murdered, and robbed on a daily basis in their world? Do they think that the victims of the above daily crimes expected to be a statistic?

It is simply jaw dropping reading some of the comments from these nut-cases. The police cannot protect you in the instant of these violent crimes, all you can do is report them after the fact…if you survive. These weak minded cowards don’t want the responsibilty of protecting their own and they want to make sure you cannot as well. They want you to share in the shame of their pathetic, shameful cowardice.

How did that work out for us? Or them??? Again & again.. Don’t you get tired of making the same mistakes? I guess not if the right people continue to make their blood money…
Noo…I don’t support evil regimes, but I also don’t support evil rebels either…Y’all need to find ways to make money that don’t kill civilians in Mass and destroy the environment forever…Surly, y’all can find something better to do!

Since the premise is for self-protection, it doesn’t make any sense to limit this to small arms. In fact, doesn’t your argument, and those of others, actually encourage the making and selling and purchasing of larger and more lethal weapons? If the Second Amendment does provides “the basis to assure all the rest,” as BluePelican states, then shouldn’t our goal be to arm ourselves to the hilt, to compete with a government that’s in control of the most powerful military machine in the history of the human race, replete with thousands of nuclear weapons?

It just seems to me that if we really care about the survival of the human race, we should be moving in the opposite direction, and in that light this treaty makes sense. It’s not an infringement on our 2nd Amendment rights. The 2nd Amendment guarantees American’s rights to bear arms; no one elses. This treaty doesn’t impinge on that right in any way, shape, or form, but it could very well infringe on the profit making of gun makers in the US, which is really what LaPierre is concerned with. Theoretically, it could be used to help prevent the gun trafficking along our Mexican border, something Mexico has been begging us to do something about, but something we tacitly encourage because of the profits involved for gun makers and their influence on our state and federal law makers. Sorry, but regardless of what LaPierre says, our Constitution, and specifically our 2nd Amendment, only applies to Americans and it doesn’t protect an American’s right to sell arms to people beyond our borders, though I don’t think this treaty will do much to restrict that either. It provides for too many ways around that.

What makes this all the more unsettling is that the NRA, like most political forces in the world, is about the profits of a few people. So we use the Constitution as a rationale for the profit making of a few by selling as many weapons to as many people as possible. Bad logic. Down the rabbit hole we fall and the more stupid we get, the more we convince ourselves we’re smart.
