Gun Confiscation is Coming

Desert Conservative published a fascinating article warning of the imminent gun confiscations which are being organized by the Obama administration.

On Wednesday Obama Took the First Major Step in a Plan to Ban All Firearms in the United States. The Obama administration intends to force gun control and a complete ban on all weapons for US citizens through the signing of international treaties with foreign nations. By signing international treaties on gun control, the Obama administration can use the US State Department to bypass the normal legislative process in Congress. Once the US Government signs these international treaties, all US citizens will be subject to those gun laws created by foreign governments. These are laws that have been developed and promoted by organizations such as the United Nations and individuals such as George Soros and Michael Bloomberg. The laws are designed and intended to lead to the complete ban and confiscation of all firearms.

At first glance I thought this was paranoid nonsense. Then when I read it through I was sure it was paranoid nonsense. What do you think? Are these guys serious.

First of all, didn't it come out a couple months ago that Hilary agreed to this international agreement as long as they had a consensus? That's what I remember. Secondly, if this means "US citizens will be subject to those gun laws created by foreign governments," how do Bloomberg and Soros enter into it? What foreign governments are they with?

To me this sounds like more paranoid Obama bashing. I wonder if the folks putting this stuff out really believe it or if they're just acting like shills for the gun manufacturers who are hoping for another surge in sales, greedy businessmen that they are.

What's your opinion? Is there another way to understand this kind of hysteria? Do you think it's true?

Please leave a comment.


  1. "What foreign governments are they with?"

    I'm guessing Bloomberg is with the foreign government of New York City and Soros is with the New World Order/One World Government.

    But, yeah. That whole article is a bit on the fringe.

  2. Gun Confiscation is Coming!

    What's that old canard? Something like, 'First they came for our brains and then our guns...'

  3. A few days ago, I was questioned by a police officer after I took a picture of his police car in front of a dunkin donuts store. He questioned why I took the photo and even after I told him it was the classic iconic photo of cop car and donut shop, he demanded my id and vehicle regristration, even though the car was in park and I did not break any law. It gets even better when a another man in jeans and a white t-shirt tells me to stay in my car when I tried to get out of it, and when I asked him to show me his identification of him being a cop, the cop told me the man was a cop because the cop said he was. After being detained for five minutes and not committing no crime I was free to go.
    Although the cop might have been sensative to having his cop car photographed in front of a dunkin donuts, it is a perfect example of how americans are losing liberty in the name of security.

  4. It's dangerous nonsense. Today I learn that just such a crackpot theory, disseminated via e-mail, is what was about to send the Huraree into combat mode.

    This is the kind of crap that people send my mother in law. I know to hit delete. Why don't they?

  5. Nice unbiased opinion piece there SoBeale....

    As for stupid folks getting worked up about crap they know nothing about and being totally wrong, I would think you'd know something about that yourself wouldn't you?

    OH NOES, GUNS IN BARS (only you were dead wrong)

    OH NOES, ERIC THOMPSON BROKE THE LAW AND SOLD GUNS TO BOTH SCHOOL SHOOTERS! (only he didn't and you were dead wrong)

    We could go on and on, but I think perhaps you get the point.
