Dick Morris Warns of Gun Control Imposed by the United Nations
Dick Morris, political author and commentator, warns of a threat to the Second Amendment Right to bear arms.
Morris cautions that President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton â€śOn July 27â€¦ are going to sign a treaty in New York City which will obligate the United States to participate in a global regime of gun control.â€ť
The Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) is a proposal by the United Nations to address the lack of global standards for the international arms trade. Morris concedes that â€śthe theoretical objective of the ATT is to regulate the arms trade,â€ť but bills this claim as â€śridiculous because most of the arms trade is done by the governments and this [treaty] does nothing to regulate government arms trafficking.â€ť
Morris claims â€śthe real purpose of this [treaty] is that it will set up an international agency that will be in charge of controlling the flow of arms throughout the worldâ€¦It really will have the authority to tell member nations to adopt policies within their own countries to facilitate regulation of flows across borders.â€ť
Furthermore, Morris asserts that â€śif this treaty is ratified by the Senate, it assumes parody with the second amendmentâ€¦because the supremacy clause of the constitution says treaties are the law of the land.â€ť
Morris concludes that â€śfor those of us who value the Second Amendment Right to Bear Arms, this is absolutely pivotal.â€ť
Before ratification of this treaty, it is imperative that the American public understand its impact. Certainly, Americans deserve to know about a potential threat to the Second Amendment.
