-- -- threat to the Second Amendment our next guest says -- United Nations small arms treaty.
Is actually an end run around our constitution.
And should be rejected by every American joining us now is -- -- them.
He's president of the freedom alliance he's also the author of diplomatic divorce why America should end its love affair with the United Nations are good to have you with us.
-- beyond -- this.
Small arms treaty.
This it would really be.
To get around our constitution the Second Amendment I mean how would that work.
Oh sure it would be because this is an international agreement that is very broaden overreaching and what it is trying to do.
Is to regulate the at the manufacture the ownership -- possession of small of conventional firearms big and small but not only that it would also reach into.
Other aspects of the manufacturing technology the related parts and equipment.
That are all part of the of the firearms industry.
Secondly it would also create an international bureaucracy.
That would adjudicated enforce the -- of the provisions of the treaty.
I mean that's just perfect I mean if you if you can all you know.
Once stop on the US constitution simultaneously created bureaucracy you've got -- in of the left would have to be an absolute heaven here.
The NRA says that the treaty would also require manufacturer which I'm shocked that it's just regular -- civilians shotguns.
They're compose your same regulatory processes.
Is combat attack helicopters.
That's right and there are some countries the United States Japan and Canada.
That are trying to -- in specific exemptions for hunting and sporting.
Shotguns and other firearms and that tells you the kind of the lack of confidence that some of these folks have.
In in in the treaties provisions or that or there disdain for the right to it to keep and bear arms.
Not only in the US but throughout the world are now this -- has to be ratified.
By the senate does it not.
It would it would have to be yes what what will happen is this is gonna come to a head next summer in 2012.
And does this administration is likely to sign it and then it would go to the senate for ratification which would require two thirds.
But there are already.
-- many of the senators.
Have expressed their opposition.
Or concern about this treaty.
And what I find unfortunate -- that you know the founding fathers have weighed in on this the courts have ruled in the American people have spoken out.
On they're they're desire to have the right to keep and bear arms and yet this president.
Goes the United Nations to try and get their help to overturn the will of the American electorate.
If He comes through with this trees and signs that next summer in the midst of an election whatever his poll numbers are.
That will mean that He took absolutely nothing from history political history.
And that is what happened in 1990s.
After President Clinton are -- after the afterwards so called assault weapons in this country it was a disaster for the Democratic Party.
Would have try to have learned something.
This you know this president fancies himself as a citizen of the world that He took an oath.
To protect and defend the constitution of the United States of America.
And president of the United States does not have the luxury of being a cafeteria constitutional list.
He has to protect the whole document not just those provisions with which He likes and -- -- -- -- to do all of that including the Second Amendment.
And I think -- sort could put it another way is if I'm a Tom.
American citizens don't have -- -- being absentee and passive citizens any longer.
We're working against too many very forces that would remove the constitution.
From our nation.
And this is just one example of precisely about.
That effort -- -- very large even global scale Tom pilgrim thanks for being with us we appreciate your being here we appreciate your vigilance.
Thank thank you.
