ALERT: The UN just adopted landmark treaty to regulate multibillion-dollar global arms trade

UNITED NATIONS — The U.N. General Assembly overwhelmingly approved the first U.N. treaty regulating the multibillion-dollar international arms trade Tuesday, a goal sought for over a decade to try to keep illicit weapons out of the hands of terrorists, insurgent fighters and organized crime.

The resolution adopting the landmark treaty was approved by a vote of 154 to 3 with 23 abstentions. As the numbers appeared on the electronic board, loud cheers filled the assembly chamber.

A group of treaty supporters sought a vote in the 193-member world body after Iran, North Korea and Syria blocked its adoption by consensus at the end of a two-week final negotiating conference last Thursday. The three countries voted “no” on Tuesday’s resolution while Russia and China, both major arms exporters, abstained.

I have something the UN can kiss!

Phil ?? Me Too. But, they should hear whats in store for ANYONE who comes to get MY Shooters. I might Die. But that's better than being a UN Slave. OR an OBOGUS/LIB/DEM Slave. NEVER GIVE an INCH

we really need the UN to leave this country and never return

Be nice if ' Barry' left with them- you know 'Barry' , he's the Messiah !!!

   The United Nations is the largest organization of lowlifes and corruption in the world , NOTHING they do is for anyones benefit except their own .

You can include our present gov't among the low-lifes in the world....How embarrassing it is to have this bunch of stupid idiots agree with the UN  on anything.  They are so great at their job, example.....look at the mess the world is in !!! The only thing they are united in is in corruption and greed !!! I agree, we should throw them out of our country, along with Obama and his cronies in the gov't !!!! This is the begining of the dissolution of our Constitution....TIME for the second REVOLUTION !!!!

Like everything else the UN involves it self in , this treaty will mean and do nothing . This anemic joke of a world body should just close down and go home to their respective countries

I think all true AMERICANS have some lead for the UN .UN stands for under nothing can we be trusted at all because they don"t recognize the constition ,  declration of independence or anything else that made our country strong.Now all they strive for is to make us WEAK.Do not give up any GUNS to anyone with out lead first.

Wondering just what this treaty. I can't believe these politicians that believe regulations and treaties will stop terrorist and criminals from getting weapons and guns. This great will only hurt the law abiding people and aid the criminals

which country is going to have its troops physically enforce this new wonderful treaty ? 

EVERYONE: you MUST bombarde everyone in Congress to vote NO when this gets to the Senate!! They are trying to also regulate OUR arms here in one-fell-swoop! This will cause GLOBAL GUN REGISTRATION, and must be killed! Obama and Hillary have been working on this for several years, and we MUST squash it NOW!! We will be allowing the UN to tell us what guns we can have, or not! They have no right to demand ANYTHING from us, unless our OWN country says its OK, which Obama is anxious to say "yes" to.

PLEASE, get the US out of the UN and the UN out of the US, petty dictators and communists are NOT telling me what to do, I am SOVEREIGN!! The UN can go to HELL!!

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
