Few Americans read and study their U.S. Constitution. Fellow Americans, your greatest enemy is your own ignorance.
When Citizens Have No Arms Only Tyrants Will Have Them
The United Nations “Working Group on Treaty Universalization” is meeting on April 26-29, 2022. What is on the agenda of the working group?
This “working group” is tasked with setting the agenda for this summer’s “Conference of State Parties,” (CSP8) where stakeholders determine how they can twist the arms of countries like the U.S. to ensure full-scale compliance…Dudley Brown, President, the National Association of Gun Rights (NAGR)
[I]n July 2019 [when Donald Trump was president] the United States (the world’s leading exporter of arms) informed the treaty depositary that it did not intend to seek ratification of the treaty, despite signing it in 2013 [ while Barack Obama was president], and would no longer consider itself bound by its object and purpose. While Joe Biden pledged to undo this decision as part of his platform in the 2020 US presidential election, his administration has thus far remained silent on the ATT. This has provided cover to other states eager to stay outside the treaty.Stockholm Interenational Peace Research Institute [SIPRI], August 2021: TAKING STOCK OF THE ARMS TRADE TREATY: UNIVERSALIZATION
Your first self-defense tool against losing your right to keep and bear arms is self-education. Read and study the U.S. Constitution, to wit Article. VI., the second paragraph that defines the Supreme Law of the Land:
“This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.”
The three elements of the Supreme Law of our republic:
- The Constitution
- Federal laws made in pursuance of the Constitution
- ALL Treaties
Read again the last phrase of the above Article VI: “any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding. Notwithstanding means “in spite of; without being opposed or prevented by“. In spite of any treaty with any other country (country means state), we the citizens have no obligation to yield to any treaty, not in pursuance of our Constitution.
The important principle emanating from Article VI is found in the phrase “made in Pursuance thereof”. Any legislation not made in pursuance of the Constitution, any court opinion not made in pursuance of the Constitution, and any treaty not made in pursuance of the Constitution are unconstitutional and not legally binding. Any treaty that would, if left unchallenged, nullify our natural right to keep and bear arms, a right protected by the Second Amendment to the Constitution is unconstitutional and legally unenforceable.
A word from one of a Founding Father: “I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.” – Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Madison, January 30, 1787
