Washington, DC --(Ammoland.com)- About every twenty-fifth message in my Inbox concerns the efforts of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to impose, on every American she claims to represent, a treaty written by and for the United Nations that would result in the end of private firearms ownership in this country.
Smart money has it that Hillary was appointed Secretary of State in the first place for no other reason than to keep her out of Barack Obama’s administrative hair — just before he took over foreign affairs – so she had to find something else to do with her spare time.
Hillary and her Yoonie goblins obviously agree with her husband that the Founding Fathers “gave” us too many rights and now maybe some of them need to be taken “back“. They think they’re being clever – a common failing among critters toting diplomas from overrated Ivy League colleges -- having found an end-run around the Second Amendment that has caused them so much heartache throughout the past several decades.
Under Article 6, Section 2 of the United States Constitution, they reason – to the extent that reason’s involved -- a treaty possesses equal authority to any American law, including the Constitution itself. The proposed U.N. small arms treaty would nullify the Second Amendment. Shamefully, there are lot of people and organizations, nominally on “our side” making money – or political hay – from these circumstances.
But here’s what the original document has to say:
This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.
At first, it looks like Hillary and her U.N. goons are pretty much correct. ” … all Treaties made … shall be the supreme Law of the Land … “
Not so much, actually. ... continues...
