There is but one way they will ever take our guns. By repelling the second amendment. TO do this you need a large support of congress and the support of the states. ANT going to happen

The Washington Times did not tell the entire truth. They forgot to tell us that any treaty must be ratified by 67 US senators. The Times conveniently forgot to tell us that a UN treaty does not trump the US Constitution. The Times also forgot to tell us that there is no treaty and that no treaty will be written until at least 2012. The proposed treaty is not about guns in the hands of law abiding US citizens.


That’s Bolton’s opinion. The fact is that a provision in the resolution’s preamble – included at the request of the U.S. – explicitly recognizes the right of nations to regulate gun sales and ownership within their borders, including through their constitutions:
UN General Assembly Resolution A/C.1/64/L.38/Rev.1, Oct. 28: Acknowledging also the right of States to regulate internal transfers of arms and national ownership, including through national constitutional protections on private ownership, exclusively within their territory…
Another provision acknowledges that countries have a right to arms for "self-defence and security needs and in order to participate in peace support operations."

A good article on the UN small arms treaty:
