Letter: UN gun ban treaty violates U.S. Constitution

UN treaty vs Constitution

This letter is regarding a March 24 article by Adam Geller titled, “Hitler joins gun debate, but history is in dispute.” Geller seems to be another gun control advocate, white washing Hitler’s allowance of guns in Nazi Germany in certain people’s hands. Hitler had the power to give or take away people’s rights at his whim. Some Germans were allowed to have guns to fit Hitler’s agenda. Hitler was all powerful. I’m surprised The News-Review would print such an article for front page news.

The United Nations gun ban treaty recently negotiated, if signed by the United States, would be in direct violation of the U.S. Constitution, which is the supreme law of our land. Any attack on the Second Amendment is an attack on the whole constitution.

Obama and Hillary Clinton both support this travesty on American’s rights under the constitution. Obama and Clinton must be taking their cues from the Communist Manifesto, which teaches citizens to give up their rights for the sake of the “common good,” but that always ends in a police state. Control is the key concept. Ignorance is when you truly don’t know the difference between right and wrong. Stupidity is when you know the difference but go ahead and do the wrong thing, anyway.

We have many politicians who fit this saying. Politicians take the oath of office to protect and uphold the U. S. Constitution and are not obligated to bow to any citizen’s demand that is contrary to this oath of office. Many politicians are willing to give up U.S. sovereignty. No other country is willing to give up theirs.
