The 2nd Amendment Transcends the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty

The 2nd Amendment Transcends the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty
Our Founding Fathers recognized that part of our birthright as humans in general, but Americans in particular, is the possession of natural rights that cannot be controlled, denied, or otherwise constricted by a man-made government. They took pains to communicate this to us via the Bill of Rights, in which one of the rights they explicitly listed was the right to keep and bear arms.

According to the Founders, the right not only to keep arms but also to bear the arms we keep, "shall not be infringed." Moreover, they held that this right, above and beyond all others, is "necessary to the security of a free state."

Because this right transcends man-made governments, even the U.S. government, it most certainly transcends any treaty the U.N. can produce. This fact needs to pervade our psyches, as we need to be confident in the knowledge of the rights that are ours by birth.

The 2nd Amendment "shall not be infringed."
