U.N. Small Arms Treaty is one step to taking away our freedoms

  • Published in Letters
To the editor,
In yesterday's paper (June 4), there was an informative letter by George Dengel regarding the U.N. Agenda 21. We've been doing a lot of research on the subject and a whole new world is opening up to us. Thanks to Tim Carter and the Lakes Region Tea Party, to Glenn Beck and Ann Coulter for standing firm on the Constitution.
Mr. Dengel mentioned the U.N. Small Arms Treaty that has just been signed by 60 countries, and President Obama will be signing it when the translation has been done to his satisfaction. Any international treaty will trump our own Constitution. According to freedomoutpost.com, Mr. Obama may sign the treaty sometime before the end of August — when Congress will not be in town. The Senate has already signed a resolution to not ratify the treaty, and we must let our senators know we support them. Secretary of State John Kerry said that Obama will sign despite bipartisan resistance in Congress. This is all part of the U.N.'s sustainable development initiative signed by George Bush in 1992, and implemented by Bill Clinton under a Presidential Order, and has been in the works in all planning commissions around the country. The Master Plan calls for governments to take control of all land use and not leave decision making in the hands of private property owners. Look it up on line; this is a fact, their plan, not a conspiracy. The U.N. Small Arms Treaty is only one step to taking away our freedoms.
