Re-posting here, the comment I made on Joe Huffman's blog about the CIFTA Treaty. (Not because I am genius, but because I don't have that many coherent statements and I hate to waste them.)


When I queried my Senator (Webb) about this, he indicated support for it. The "Pro-gun" democrats (if such an animal actually exists) really do believe that this will not have any domestic implications for private gun ownership, ammunition reloading, or private gun transactions. When looked at through their Pollyanna lenses of being good world citizens, this treaty makes perfect sense. However, if we look at it through the "worst enemy" lens of rational legislation, we can foresee many instances of this law being the basis for abuse of our Second Amendment rights. It doesn't take a Rhodes Scholar to figure out that this treaty is targeted at the American gun owner. And, that removing this last bastion of Free Men is the goal of the people for whom world government is an ultimate prescription to solving the world's problems.

CIFTA should be on everybody's radar scope who values their freedom. I do not believe that it is alarmist to call out the Senate on this one, no matter how early it is in the game. My senators have both heard from me. I hope that everyone who reads your blog will do likewise and let their own senators know that this treaty shall not be ratified, as it is anathema to Liberty.

Concur... Webb doesn't surprise me- He'd VOTE for gun control if it came up...
