We have enough problems without the U.N.



U.N. pushing their "small arms and ammo treaty" again.

                                        link to article above

It's tough enough trying to keep our own government from making stupid laws.  Despite the best efforts of people who still live in the sphere of reality,  Washington D.C. pumps out hundreds of new laws each year. Some of them are just codified acts of stupidity, engendered by some nobody who wanted to have a "legacy."  Many of them, though, are serious threats to the rights of the average citizen in the United States.  There's a book called  Three Felonies a Day which addresses this phenomenon.



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.

  1. The U.N. has it done any good?? The next President if not a liberal, will spend their first few months writing E.O. to cancel all of B.O.'s E.O.'s. God help us if Hillary gets in. All of us bloggers will end up in Canada.

    1. I don't know if I want to go to Canada. I just read an article where some woman stopped on the road to get some ducks off the highway. A guy on a motorcycle crashed into the back of her car and killed himself and his passenger. Now she's facing an extensive prison sentence. That just doesn't sound like Canada to me but it's on all the news sites.

    2. Any way I think we are all in deep crap, with no way out. I think those of us living away from the cities will have a better chance for awhile anyhow.

    3. Depends on what happens. Things like gun registration and confiscation will sweep everybody up in the net. There's not shortage of people willing to inform on their neighbors.

  2. I absolutely agree that this will be used as an excuse for more executive orders.....none of them good for the American people. What do you suppose it is going to take for folks to wake up? I'm guessing most won't until someone wearing a blue helmet is at their door demanding their firearms.

    1. The sad thing is that a lot of Americans would be perfectly ok with that. I read articles every day, written by well off individuals with absolutely no connection to the average citizen. They're all for this kind of thing. One I read yesterday, written by a young women, said that anyone who did not trust the government was exhibiting a form of mental illness.

  3. Funny you should mention the Bundy thing. I think we have finally been so divided that indeed these silly laws, treaties and orders no longer hold much weight. Sure they still do with companies and institutions which means in many ways they apply to individuals because we can't break the law of owning a certain type of ammo if it ain't for sale kinda thing but people are fighting back when they can.

    With LEO's acting the way they have been too I know many feel, like I do, that when the time does come might as well go out standing up.

    1. I think there are Law Enforcement people who would resist being part of the implementation of sweeping Obama "reforms." But I think there are a hell of a lot of them that would cheerfully do it, just for the sense of power it gives them. In the 1930's, plenty of German police tried to look the other way and not get involved in what were clearly bad laws and situation. But enough of them complied that the net result was the same.

      The big thing that worries me is gun registration. I won't comply. But I'm on the ATF list of collectors, which means I will surely come to their attention in the event of some kind of registration scam. Then what? I haven't got that figured out but I know I'm not going to kiss their behinds and do what they want.

  4. It seems like most politicians don't pay attention to the Constitution anymore. It's rather sad.

    1. President Obama breaks laws one after the other. If they are inconvenient, he just ignores them. Then people raise hell for a day or so and it's forgotten. The founding fathers knew what they were doing when they designed our government with three distinct and interlocking branches. When the Constitution is complied with, tyranny is virtually impossible. But now, when the executive branch rides roughshod over the legislative and judicial branches, any tin pot politician that can get into the oval office can be a Julius Caesar.

  5. Hey Harry,


    (captaincrunch)

    I got a little saying I made up. "The more control they try to take, the more anarchy they will create"

    Human behavior cannot be controlled only regulated if your lucky. Down here in Texas the speed limits can go up to 85 MPH but people will still drive 90-100 MPH. If guns and ammo are outlawed. People will be killed with knives. If knives are outlawed, bows and arrows will be the weapons of choice and there can be no end.

    I'm not to worried about the U.N. That corrupt Communist organization titers on collapse from its own corruption and ineptitude.

    I personally rack up at least 15 felonies a day including speeding, giving people the middle finger and urinating on my property to keep the meth addicts and bobcats at bay. I also refuse to Recycle garbage and I hacksawed off the Catalytic Converters on my trucks (Eat my Carbon Al Gore)

    My next big project will be restoring an old 1990's diesel pick up of some sort so I can over fuel the engine and blow black smoke on the hybrid cars behind me (that's about 35 felonies right there)

    1. CC, be kind of careful about what you write, buddy. I get a lot of hate mail, not all the people who come here are sympathetic to our points of view. If somebody wants to find out who you are, and they are willing to work at it, they eventually will.

      I'm not worried about U.N. boots on the ground. I'm very worried about some B.S. United Nations treaty being used by Obama or someone like him as a smoke screen for executive orders that overturn the Constitution. That's what scares me about it.

      The bad thing about so many inane laws, is that when the government decides it wants to remove you from the gene pool, it can just pick some little known statute and charge you with violating it. So no one is safe from arrest. I will say that in the last few years, they have arrested a great many people on "tips", which turned out to be totally false. But that still allowed them to destroy their victims financially, intimidate them, and shut them up.

    he has taken over all the elected reps powers and they say nothing. what's wrong with them?

    1. They are, by and large, weak and morally corrupt people like Harry Reid, or Boehner. They don't care about anything but preserving their own perks and padding their own cushy nests. That's why they don't oppose Obama.

  7. Not surprisingly Ayn Rand had an interesting take on this in ATLAS SHRUGGED:
    “There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.”

    1. That is absolutely true. One of the classical Greek philosophers said that the viability of a government is inversely proportional to the number of laws it generates. I wish I could remember the exact quote and who said it.
