The essence is that there are so many laws now, that no one can avoid breaking some of them every day. Far from trying to do something to trim this unmanageable mass of paper into something understandable, the Feds are delighted. It gives them the power to nail anyone they want to, any time they want to. They just have to figure out what statute you're in violation of, and they can ruin you. That's what they were trying to do with Bundy out West. They wanted his land, so they just found a "law" they could say he violated.
Now, this U.N. "treaty" has reared it's head again. There was a time when all treaties had to be ratified by the Senate and the House. But these days, the President and his lackey's don't worry about the Constitution. Anything they want that they can't get through the Congress, they simply implement through Executive Order. My concern with the U.N. trying to mandate gun regulation in the United States is that Obama will use this as an excuse for more executive orders. The use of executive orders by a President to rule by Diktat started on a large scale with Bill Clinton, and has been going strong with Obama. It's just one more threat to our way of life, but it's a big one.
