Obama’s Next Backdoor Assault on 2nd Amendment
‘The point is just to try to reduce legitimate gun ownership’
(WND) – Secretary of State John Kerry once again signed the United Nations Arms Treaty on Wednesday, a move that supporters say will help stop weapons from getting into the hands of criminals and terrorists worldwide but critics contend is is a backdoor assault on law-abiding gun owners.
The treaty would require nations to conduct a detailed registration of all guns. The issue is dead on arrival in the U.S. Senate, but one of the leading experts on guns says even if the agreement is only ratified in other countries, it can still work to erode gun ownership in America.
“The point of this is just to try to reduce legitimate gun ownership in other countries. Eventually it has some feedback effect in the United States.

Klein, who said the rally is tentatively set for September 9th, continued: “Maybe [Trump] will be covered more than anyone else at the rally. Fine. The issue’s all that matters to me, and getting it covered, and trying to stop this disaster for our country.”..(MORE)
