Is Obama Unfettered On Gun Control?

Second Amendment advocacy groups like Gun Owners of America (GOA) and the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) are predicting a tough four years for the Nation’s gun owners as President Barack Obama readies himself for a second term in the White House.

Larry Pratt, executive director of GOA, said in a recent interview that he is shocked that the President won a second term. He expressed concerns over Washington’s call to restart debates over the United Nations’ proposed Arms Trade Treaty. He contends that Americans can expect the Administration to “openly launch broadsides” against their gun rights.

The Obama Administration joined with China, France, Germany, the United Kingdom and more than 150 other governments to support renewed debate on the proposed United Nations Arms Trade Treaty less than 24 hours after the President was re-elected, according to SAF.

“It’s obvious that our warnings over the past several months have been true,” said Alan Gottlieb, founder and executive vice president of SAF. “The election was called about 11 p.m. Tuesday and by 11 a.m. this [Wednesday], we got word that the United States was supporting this resolution. We have to be more vigilant in our efforts to stop this proposed treaty.”

Amnesty International issued a statement Wednesday lauding passage of the resolution, saying the treaty will protect human rights; but Gottlieb counters that the right to self-defense as allowed by the 2nd Amendment is a basic human right.

While both SAF and GOA highlight the importance of American vigilance when it comes to protecting the 2nd Amendment for those domestic and abroad who seek to undermine the rights it provides, they also say that Congress is unlikely to pass the international treaty if it makes it to the Capitol.

Pratt believes Obama will pursue more gun owner registration, more executive orders designed to limit 2nd Amendment rights and more anti-gun Supreme Court justices in the coming years.
