RUMOR CONTROL

Are Hillary Clinton & Barack Obama coming for your guns via UN treaty?
 

Many times a week, ISRA receives the following important warning, in this form, or something very similar, sometimes in all caps, large fonts, different colors, you've been receiving it too.  Here's an example:

While you were watching the oil spill, the New York failed terrorist bombing and other critical crises, Hillary Clinton signed the small arms treaty with the UN.

OBAMA FINDS LEGAL WAY AROUND THE 2ND AMENDMENT AND USES IT.
IF THIS PASSES, THERE COULD BE WAR

On Wednesday Obama Took the First Major Step in a Plan to Ban All Firearms in the United States

On Wednesday the Obama administration took its first major step in a plan to ban all firearms in the United States . The Obama administration intends to force gun control and a complete ban on all weapons for US citizens through the signing of international treaties with foreign nations. By signing international treaties on gun control, the Obama administration can use the US State Department to bypass the normal legislative process in Congress. Once the US Government signs these international treaties, all US citizens will be subject to those gun laws created by foreign governments. These are laws that have been developed and promoted by organizations such as the United Nations and individuals such as George Soros and Michael Bloomberg.

Please forward this message to others who may be concerned about the direction in which our country is headed. This is a very serious matter! Silence will lead us to Socialism!!!

So is Hillary coming for your guns? Like most stories spread on the internet there is some truth to this, some falsehood and some exaggerations.

The talks about the treaty exist. That said, we are a sovereign country with our own constitution. Even if the administration signed such a treaty, it has to be ratified by 2/3 of the US Senate, and even if they could ratify it, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that we have an individual constitutionally protected right to own firearms.  There has been no signing of any such treaty.

This administration does not have the power to implement such a change in American culture. Look at all the trouble they had passing the health care bill. The resistance to that change would be dwarfed by the people's resistance if they were looking at a revocation of their second amendment rights.

Still, the threat is being taken seriously. The Second Amendment Foundation has a recently formed International organization that is tracking these, as is the NRA. ISRA works closely with both of these organizations and if there is a credible, immediate threat that requires action, ISRA will be amongst the first to get out the alerts to our friends.

Gunowners must stay organized and informed. Being a member of the ISRA is the best way to achieve that. If you're not an ISRA member, you can join on-line , or over the phone at 815-635-3198. You can download a printable application form here .
