Obama Urges Quick Adoption of Arms Trade Treaty by UN General Assembly

Despite failing to be adopted by consensus vote on last Thursday, the Arms Trade Treaty’s (ATT) civilian disarmament agenda marches on.

In an interview with The New American in advance of Thursday’s ill-fated final plenary session of the conference at UN headquarters deliberating the Arms Trade Treaty, a member of the U.S. delegation said the they were prepared to vote in favor of adoption of the gun grab.

They never got the chance, however, as Iran, Syria, and North Korea objected to the treaty, declaring it to be too favorable to the interests of the United States.

That point is debatable.

As I reported from the conference, the text of the treaty mandates several infringements on the right of people to keep and bear arms as protected by the Second Amendment to the Constitution.

For example, the Preamble of the Arms Trade Treaty points to the United Nations Charter as the source of guiding principles upon which the agreement is based. Citizens of the United States, however, recognize God as the source of all rights they enjoy. Not even the Constitution claims to be the giver of rights; it is merely the protector of them.

NRA Sues NY Gov. Cuomo on Gun Control Law

March 28, 2013 – (as reported March 22, 2013) | Ken Klukowski, Breitbart

Cuomo

The National Rifle Association NRA is supporting a lawsuit filed by its state affiliate, the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, whose president, Tom King, serves on the NRA board of directors.

In its complaint filed Mar. 21, the lawsuit challenges two provisions of Cuomo’s new gun-control law: one that bans a made-up type of firearm some politicians call “assault weapons” (there is no such type of firearm–it’s a collection of various types of guns that look scary but function like ordinary guns), and also the provision that bans ammunition magazines that hold more than seven rounds.

Latest Homeland Security (DHS) Armored Vehicle

March 6, 2013 – Originally reported September 6, 2012 | Ken Jorgustin, Modern Survial Blog

Of the nearly 9,000 delivered MaxxPro units to the military, the Department of Homeland Security is apparently taking delivery (apparently through the Marine Corps Systems Command, Quantico VA, via the manufacturer – Navistar Defense LLC) of an undetermined number of the recently retrofitted 2,717 ‘Mine Resistant Protected’ MaxxPro MRAP vehicles for service on the streets of the United States.

As these MRAP’s return from overseas/Afghanistan, and although it is apparently unknown exactly how many are being delivered, or have been delivered to DHS, I decided to dig slightly deeper and discover more about the vehicle itself…

The new DHS sanctioned ‘Street Sweeper’ (my own slang due to the gun ports) is built by Navistar Defense (NavistarDefense.com), a division within the Navistar organization. Under the Navistar umbrella are several other companies including International Trucks, IC Bus (they make school buses), Monaco RV (recreational vehicles), WorkHorse (they make chassis), MaxxForce (diesel engines), and Navistar Financial (the money arm of the company).
