Obama extracts revenge on the NRAer's day after election.

Or maybe not....

"We seek a treaty that contributes to international security by fighting illicit arms trafficking and proliferation, protects the sovereign right of states to conduct legitimate arms trade, and meets the concerns that we have been articulating throughout," the official said.

"We will not accept any treaty that infringes on the constitutional rights of our citizens to bear arms," he said.

U.S. officials have acknowledged privately that the treaty under discussion would have no effect on domestic gun sales and ownership because it would apply only to exports.

3. " infringes on the constitutional rights of our citizens to bear arms,"

Uh oh. Better let President Obama know that he's anti-Democratic. Doesn't he know that the constitution doesn't mean Citizens?

Methinks that snippet deserves it's own post, that'n.

8. you realize that even though

the NRA, and Canada's NFA to a lesser degree, are paranoid about the treaty, many if not most gun makers support it? I guess not.
