    Each election cycle the NRA, GOA, local gun shop wails about the 'hidden agenda' to the point even when NO attempt is made to restrict the 2nd A, one needs to be ginned up. The UN STUDY on how to control small arm sales in the turbulent third world is just that, there is NO, I say again for those with a low IQ, there is NO Treaty, nothing to sign.

    This started in 2010 and is still being trotted out to stir up the already up in arms right wingnuts.

    No way, no how the Senate, ANY Senate would ratify such a treaty if it included provisions to override our Constitution.

    But until a new tactic can be developed the usual fearmongers will have to continue to beat this drum. For my marksmanship expenses it is right up there with speculator scare tactics to justify the increased price of the bullets I buy in bulk, or the wait in line at the 'gun' counter as nimrods ask such insightful questions like what caliber the AR15 is...
    Fears have been justified when Obama has admitted that he's trying to implement more gun control.

    So then it's a fools quest to once again attempt to snuff out the black market.

    I'm performing patriotic duty by questioning our elected leaders and thereby questioning this treaty. It's my duty. It's nothing personal.

    Well, at least I'm not the man that used a snopes link, that is over two years old and discusses a totally seperate document.

    It was updated 9Jul12, it clearly says so at the bottom, it doesn't matter if it was created two years ago because obviously the issue is still current AND its been updated. You still haven't read it have you?

    I remember when a 50 round box of 9mm was just under 10 bucks. Now it's about 15, and 38 spl is about the same. Not a huge leap like the fear mongers said it would be, but still enough to piss me off. Some places are even pushing this overpriced Soviet era **** in giant green tins now, making appeals to the tacti-fags. No way in hell I'd ever buy that ****, I only buy Winchester and Remington rounds for my baby. I try to avoid gun store conversations, since they're usually just ego stroking bull**** stories, since all the big talkers in the gun shop are Kimber hocking know it alls.

    Predictable diatribe...

    Apparently the "nimrods" asked an "insightful" question because they know the AR15 platform is chambered for different cartridges including:

    5.56 x 45 mm, 9mm, .458 Socom, .450 Bushmaster, .50 Beowulf, 6.8 Remington, .300 Whisper, 5.45x39mm, .22 long rifle, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5mm Grendel, and 6mm BR Remington, to name a few.

    It seems from your post you don't.

    It still concerns an event that happened two years ago. Nothing about what's going on, now.
