Dick Morris: Obama's About To Agree To A "Back-Door Gun Control" Act, Via Treaty, Which Will Trump The Second Amendment

I saw Morris talking about this last night. He's a smart man, but I don't know if he's right about this in all of its particulars. I don't think a treaty can abridge a freedom guaranteed to US citizens.

But who knows what a weak man like Justice Roberts is willing to say to keep the NYT being nice to him.

Either way, I'm against it.

Now, per Morris, and per the article linked below, the Senate will not pass this. However, Morris warns, the Senate will not even consider it until the lame duck session-- and so, for six or seven months, Obama can behave as if the treaty is in effect.


One thing Morris is obviously correct about: This lawless administration seeks to do via naked executive power grabs what it cannot do by Constitutional means.

Via Hot Air, the UN is "finalizing" a treaty.

While the treaty’s details are still under discussion, the document could straitjacket U.S. foreign policy to the point where Washington could be restricted from helping arm friends such as Taiwan and Israel, said Greg Suchan, Deputy Assistant Secretary in the State Department’s Bureau of Political-Military Affairs from 2000 to 2007.

Suchan also highlighted ongoing concern that the treaty may end up giving foreigners access to U.S. gun-ownership records.

On that score, LaPierre, who serves as NRA executive vice president, warns that the “UN’s refusal” to remove civilian firearms and ammunition from the scope of the treaty amounts to a declaration that only governments should be gun owners.

But he revealed he was set Wednesday to tell the UN gathering that 58 U.S. senators had signed a letter saying that they would refuse to ratify any treaty that includes controls over civilian guns or ammunition.
