    United Nations debate over the international Arms Trade Treaty is set to resume in March amid a barrage of criticism.

    David Keene, president of the National Rifle Association, described the treaty as a ploy by President Barack Obama to circumnavigate Congress, federal courts and state legislatures in an effort to enforce his firearm agenda, potentially violating the Second Amendment rights of U.S. citizens.

    “The president and his people will tell your viewers [the treaty] does not affect the rights of the people of the U.S. It does,” Keene said in an interview with The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas. “It requires an international registry of firearms. It charges all signatory countries to set up a regime of firearms ownership and registration in their country consistent with the treaty.”

    Sounds like a great opportunity for a new govt. agency, we are certainly in need of more bureaucrats--worldwide.

    The second amendment was written to preclude tyranny. The bad guys will not register their weapons--not many good guys will either. A house to house search for weapons would not go unresisted--drones can be shot down too.

    Peace and safety? Not until Jesus returns.

    Even so, come Lord Jesus.
