Do you want this?

Dear Fellow Patriot,
This is a critical issue we need to address.
Thank you for helping, 

Sue Long

If you have been listening to the news at all, you are aware that there is an all out attack on our inherent  God-given right to be armed, which is protected by the Second Amendment.   Although this assault is not new by any means, it is certainly far more intense and flagrant.


The need is not only to be able to protect ourselves from criminals, the deranged and terrorists, but also from a government which would establish a dictatorship.


We can look to two countries for examples of how this works. Switzerland, which has one of the highest rates of gun ownership, has not had a mass shooting since 2001.


In contrast there is Germany.   Gun controls were put in place little by little, culminating in a federal registry.  When Hitler was coming to power, he used the registry to know where to go to confiscate the guns.  Once the citizens were disarmed, they were unable to resist him and depose him.

Those responsible for the murder of 100 million plus people in the 20th century made sure that their victims had first been disarmed.


Among the many means of attack against gun ownership, one of the most virulent is the UN Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). 


What does this treaty contain?

·       Our federal government would have to have a registry of who owns, buys, sells, trades or transfers guns, ammunition, parts or components.

·       The list of gun and ammo owners would be shared with foreign governments

·        The foreign government agency in charge would be unaccountable and unelected. 


What is the status of the treaty? 

So far, the ATT has not been implemented.  The Senate has not ratified this, as is required for treaties. However, President Obama signed it in 2013 on behalf of America so the UN considers us a "signatory" and Article 18 of the Vienna Convention  obligates a signer of a UN treaty "to refrain from acts which would defeat the object and purpose of [such] a treaty. "


The need is obvious.  Please call President Trump and ask him to unsign the ATT. Since he has gotten us out of other such treaties, there is a good chance that he can be persuaded to do so with this one.

His phone number is 202-456-1111. 
Send a message
and send a post card to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20500.


Thank you for helping.
