MeinRS6: One of the nice things about the UN is that they FAIL at pretty much everything they try.

Unfortunately, they are extremely successful at spending and wasting money.


Yeah that UNICEF is a horrid waste of money.. fark the little kids right? Has anyone reminded you lately that your a giant douche bag?

The proponents of the treaty have goals that are clearly at odds with the American Constitution. Their refusal to remove civilian arms from the treaty was one major issue that led to the breakdown in negotiations.  The U.S. delegation made it clear that they could not move forward with the language as it had been drafted.

TheBigJerk: dr_blasto: Ok, so outside of the nutjobs, can anyone explain how UN arms export treaties would impact anyone's ability to keep their guns? Just asking, because the actual treaty forbids exports to countries where the weapons could or would likely be used to giolate human rights-it would forbid things exactly like fast and furious.

It wouldn't even stop fast and furious.

But this isn't about law or reality, it's about a stupid narrative created by an NRA that is more beholden to its corporate partners and weapon manufacturers than its members.


If you think it's the gun manufacturers that are holding the NRA's reigns, you haven't been paying any attention.

well, they way it is written, it could but that doesn't mean anything, really. In the end, all this would do would be to ban us from exporting arms to places like Syria. Maybe. Well, there's no real enforcement attached, so it wouldn't even do that.

It would provide another stick to smack around whatever rogue nation is out of favor and that's it.

PacManDreaming: Oh man, this is gonna be fun to watch. How are the Conservatives gonna spin this to make both Obama and the UN look bad?


Obviously, the UUN (Useless United Nations) is going to lay low until after the election, and THEN swoop in, steal everyone's guns, herd all gun owners into FEMA camps, and execute Grover Norquist on live tv. And then OBIGOT will forcibly sodomize the US women's gymnastic team at gunpoint, and George Soros will laugh and laugh and laugh.

I work with two of those conspiracy nuts; I was told repeatedly that "Friday the UN will be in control" after this treaty was voted on. I just shook my head whenever they began their comments, but these are the kind of guys who don't think 6000 rounds of handgun ammo is enough.

So wait. The three largest arms manufacturing countries on the planet have issues with a treaty limiting arms trade?

NO WAI!

GAT_00: Anyone else think it's fun to see people who denounce the UN as weak and utterly incapable of anything suddenly scream about how the uber-powerful UN is going to take away their guns?


These are the same people who think Obama is as strong-armed and thuggish as Hitler while simultaneously being as weak and ineffectual as Chamberlain.
 
2012-07-28 08:44:53 PM
Did the UN mention anything about Black Helicopters, FEMA re-education/detention camps, HAARP brain-rays and C.H.U.D.'s?

I was told there would be C.H.U.D.'s.

A lot of UN conspiracy gunnuts also praised Bush through his presidency despite his regime enacting some of the most freedom crushing things in US history. Department of Homeland Security, the TSA, funding local law enforcement to stock up on military style weapons and equipment, etc. You get these cowardly "there gonna take our (insert paranoid fear) away!" worked up enough they'll support anything. Give them the right erection and they'll put their own eye out with it.

Of course the UN isn't going to invade the US. That is a straw man.

All the UN is all the countries of the world talking together. How would you change the forum in which countries talk? Or would you prefer them just not to talk?

My guess is that all the hoopla is a lot more about our military-industrial complex losing money if foreign arms trades were more tightly regulated than about individual freedoms in the US, but I guess "THEY WANNA TURK OUR GUNS!!!" is a lot easier to rally people around than "We won't make quite as much money if we can't sell weapons to despots!!".

It is simply amazing how since Obama won, people on the right have just gone completely pants on head dumb and have made the most idiotic conspiracy theories their mainstream talking points against him. Even the right wing elected officials, political pundits and news outlets are running with these conspiracy theories. It is just sad because for most of them if someone would just sit down and think for a second, and for others do 20 minutes worth of research, they would see how ridiculous these things are. It is amazing how hate can turn people into raving idiots.

I have no illusions regarding the nature of the treaty, but I can state confidently that six-thousand rounds of handgun ammunition is only "a good start".

It's not my theory. You guys look stupid when you talk out your collective ass about an incorrect concept and I'm just trying to clarify it.

And it isn't so much "at the behest of" but Obingo is allegedly signing a treaty that contains gun control measures and people see it as a back-door approach around the 2nd.

So, the UN was never coming in anyway and it was never an argument. So please adjust your rhetoric appropriately.

There's rather a large difference between the common ownership of hunting rifles and handguns.

Hunting rifles are rarely the problem.
