UN treaty signed to prevent weapons going to terrorist, too late to stop terrorists from stealing U.S. weapons in Benghazi or Mexico!
Secretary of State John Kerry signed a controversial U.N. treaty today that critics believe opens the U.S. to international interference and could serve as a basis to threaten U.S. Second Amendment rights.

He asked the Centers for Disease Control to “research the causes and prevention of gun violence.” His objective, of course, was to reinforce the leftist narrative that guns were to blame for acts of evil.

Another attempt to pass the concealed-carry law in Illinois failed last week even though it captured the overwhelming majority of the vote 64-45, but needed a supermajority of 71 votes. A supermajority vote was required because the bill would override the home-rule authority of some municipalities to establish their own concealed-carry rules, and the bill sets a state-wide standard. The U.S. Court of Appeals, 7th Circuit stuck down Illinois’ last-state-in-the-nation ban on concealed-carry and ordered the state to pass some form of...read more
