    This is simple, the government cannot make a treaty that infringes on anything in the Bill of Rights.

    It is not a power enumerated by the Constitution, therefore, it should not hold up in the Supreme Court.

    If it does hold up? Cock and lock ladies and gentlemen, it's time.
    One must be wary of the mentality creating the problem or the law creating the crime.

    I love America and the Constitution, if you don't then get out!

    I thought I had heard that the constitution said that any treaty entered into by us was considered binding and became law of the land...I can't find a refrence now to back that up...any bigger brains out there know if this is true?

    OK, this is a lentghy read, but rather interesitng Treaties as Law of the Land - United States Constitution

    It looks like the treaties are law of the land, but it also looks like Congress can repeal treaties, at which time the invovled parties can engaged in negotiations and reclamations, including war..... so either way, sounds like it could get interesting

    As I understand it, a treaty must be signed by the president and ratified by 2/3 of the Senate before it has bearing on US law. The Kyoto protocol was signed by Clinton, but never ratified by the Senate. In effect, his signature placated those desiring greenhouse gas controls, without ACTUALLY doing anything.

    Normally the 2/3 vote requirement would be a big restriction on ratification of treaties, but our current Senate is a whole 'nother story.

    Exactly wolfhunter. I would put nothing past that group of traitors in D.C.

  9. The Small Arms Treaty is not even written yet much less negotiated. The U.S. is stipulating any talks must have single country veto before we will become involved. The actual treaty talks will be held in 2012. Interestingly enough, alot of things are suppose to happen in 2012. The current hypocrite in chief getting kicked under the bus, the end of the Mayan calendar, an electromagnetic storm from the sun wiping out all electronics, the Apocalypse, cats and dogs living together, Mass Hysteria!!

    Initial talks are going on in 2010 and 2011 and the US can pull out at any time. Do i think that Obama will? No? Instead of getting worked up about something 2 years in the future, lets concentrate on current stuff, like the long gun registry in Kalifornia and the ongoing repression of the 2A in Chicago NYC and other places.

    YMMV

    Lweson, You're right. The Small Arms Treaty draft has been around at least three years that I know of. But instead of getting "worked up" to get our congress-critters set against this, let's ignore it until the draft is finalized, signed and 40-50% of our Congress have been duped into supporting it. THEN we can start rallying and complaining that Congress doesn't listen to "We the People".

    When are "We The People" going to put some teeth in the Oath our elected officials take to protect the Constitution of the United States Of America? If we don't hold these people accountable, shame on us. This should be a bigger issue.
