UNSAT still a threat

Though the United Nations Small Arms Treaty has been almost forgotten due to recent events, it has not gone away. China, the latest nation to sign the treaty, is seeking to force the U.S. into submitting next, with the full backing of “weak” President Joe Biden, who has been a strong advocate for the treaty since his time as vice president.

With the recent Democratic gains in the senate, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is hoping to ram this treaty through quietly without the American people being aware until after it’s ratified.

This treaty would allow foreign powers to destroy our Second Amendment freedoms. Article V of the treaty mandates each signing nation establish a “national control list” to track “end users” of “small and light weapons” for a minimum of ten years.

It would be disastrous if foreign nations along with President Biden and V.P. Kamala Harris had unrestricted access to a list of American gun owners. Gun registration is the first step to out right gun confiscation. The U.N. is already plotting their next step — developing new “international small arms control standards.” The treaty’s goal is to impose these radical anti-gun initiatives on every signing nation.

Plus, national mandated “screening” for those wishing to own a gun, giving the government the final say on who’s competent enough to own a firearm.

Plus, restrictive licensing on guns and ammo sales, and bans on certain types of firearms.

Plus, restrictions on the number of firearms and how much ammo a “properly licensed” individual may legally own.

Plus, bans on magazines holding more than ten rounds.

Plus, bans on owning a firearm for self defense –unless an individual can somehow demonstrate need and get government approval.

Unfortunately, Republicans failed to block this treaty when they were in power and since the gun grabbers have successfully installed Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in office, they will be pushing the S.A.T. full steam ahead.

During the last decades, Americans have made significant gains in our gun rights. Many states have passed “must issue” carry laws and even constitutional carry. The S.A.T. would cancel these gains and forever eliminate our Second Amendment.

I’ve written about the S.A.T previously, but with Biden now president, Schumer Senate leader and Nancy Pelosi the House Speaker, pushing the treaty, Americans must be aware of the great threat to our Second Amendment.
