Oathbreaker: exhibit ... I can't keep count.

"This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, any thing in the Constitution or laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding."--Constitution of the United States of America; Article VI, section II

"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."--Constitution of the United States of America, Amendment II
Obama plans to sign the UN small arms treaty--an administrative attempt to remove our God-given rights to protect ourselves from a tyrannical government.

How does that work? I mean, if God has created us with the rights named in the Declaration of Independence, and protected by the Bill of Rights, how can the government believe it can take them away?

Simple: first, common (though wrong) legal opinion, connected to the above link for the second amendment, states "However, the States and the National Government can and do control the ownership and usage of firearms by private persons."

I don't see how anyone who can fucking read can get that from the Second Amendment: "...the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." The first half of the second amendment gives an example of why the amendment was written; however, it's the second half that is important. It cannot be written any more clearly than "shall not be infringed," which is why the government has been emphasizing the first half to justify the idea that this right is granted and controlled by the federal government.

Secondly, the Constitution itself makes treaties with foreign nations co-equal with Constitutional and federal law--and the UN small arms treaty has clauses that forbid the common citizenry to own firearms.

This treaty goes directly against our God-given, Constitutionally-protected rights. And, since "Congress shall make no law...," they'll not just infringe upon our right "to keep and bear arms" through this treaty, they'll take them away entirely.

I pray to God that they aren't able to get this treaty signed until after the elections this fall. It takes a two-thirds majority in the Senate to ratify any treaty signed, according to Article II, section II, clause 2. Without ratification, our Constitution does not recognize it as co-equal to Constitutional and federal law, which does not permit the circumvention of our Constitution.
