    Why does the UN care if we own guns? It’s not like Americans are going to other country and blowing people away. It’s the US military that they need to worry about.

    The source is the State Department, regardless of there 'official' UN dealings, this is what they want:

    U.S. Support for the Arms Trade Treaty

    Hillary Rodham Clinton
    Secretary of State
    Washington, DC
    October 14, 2009

    Conventional arms transfers are a crucial national security concern for the United States, and we have always supported effective action to control the international transfer of arms.

    The United States is prepared to work hard for a strong international standard in this area by seizing the opportunity presented by the Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty at the United Nations. As long as that Conference operates under the rule of consensus decision-making needed to ensure that all countries can be held to standards that will actually improve the global situation by denying arms to those who would abuse them, the United States will actively support the negotiations. Consensus is needed to ensure the widest possible support for the Treaty and to avoid loopholes in the Treaty that can be exploited by those wishing to export arms irresponsibly.

    On a national basis, the United States has in place an extensive and rigorous system of controls that most agree is the “gold standard” of export controls for arms transfers. On a bilateral basis, the United States regularly engages other states to raise their standards and to prohibit the transfer or transshipment of capabilities to rogue states, terrorist groups, and groups seeking to unsettle regions. Multilaterally, we have consistently supported high international standards, and the Arms Trade Treaty initiative presents us with the opportunity to promote the same high standards for the entire international community that the United States and other responsible arms exporters already have in place to ensure that weaponry is transferred for legitimate purposes.

    The United States is committed to actively pursuing a strong and robust treaty that contains the highest possible, legally binding standards for the international transfer of conventional weapons. We look forward to this negotiation as the continuation of the process that began in the UN with the 2008 UN Group of Governmental Experts on the ATT and continued with the 2009 UN Open-Ended Working Group on ATT.

    Amen brother. No way anyone is taking my guns away unless they want to go out in a blaze of glory (queue Bon Jovi heh). It would be one hell of a bloody mess if the govt ever tried to take people guns away from them.

    Dude it has to do with the import and export of weapons to and from other countries. You origianly posted that they were going to make us turn our arms in. You really need to read the whole thing before you blast something. Of course this is from the State Department they are the ones that control the export and sales of US made weapons to foriegn countries. It has nothing to do with the UN and taking our weapons.

    Sorry to blast your information but you reall need to read it first. Just a suggestion..

    Im not worried about it yet. But if the day comes and they try to take my guns I feel sorry for the people doing it. Im taking as many of them with me as I can and they can come pry it from my dead hands after they kill me.

    I did read it, but thanks for suggesting that I'm a complete imbecile! :D I'll eventually live up to it! :)

    What we're reading differently is what's between the lines. Even the Former UN Ambassador, you claim to believe over the State Dept in such matters, doesn't trust this Treaty, so why should I?

    Besides, I think we need to go along with the UN on anything, like we need another hole in our head... :rolleyes:

    As for the link posted earlier, read it.
    "On a national basis, the United States has in place an extensive and rigorous system of controls that most agree is the “gold standard” of export controls for arms transfers."

    Has to do with exporting guns, not taking them from citizens. Calm down and have a beer.
