UN Agenda 21 and Gun Control In US - Fact?

A friend of mine alerted me to the upcoming talks at the United Nations concerning the Arms Trade Treaty. It is broad and vague and steps all over our 2nd Amendment.

In my research, I have found several sources that support global gun control, like OXFAM, and a story from the news agency, Reuters.

The UN Agenda accord, treaty, initiative or what ever you want to call it, is, indeed, a real plan to perpetrate a new world order; where every nation, and its People, are the same. Of course, someone will have to lead this new world; who shall it be? The United Nations? What, exactly, are they "united" about?

The following document is located on the United Nations website - http://www.un.org/jsummit/html/prep_process/africa/sadc_prepcom_progress_report.pdf

On page 42 of the document you will find the following:

5.2 Pre-Conditions For Development
The SADC region accepts that its economic development can only take place on a sustainable basis if certain critical preconditions are met. These are basically peace security and political governance.
5.2.1 Peace and Security
The peace and security initiative consists of three elements: promoting long-term conditions for development and security, building the capacity of the regions institutions to manage and resolve conflict, and institutionalizing commitment to the core values of the regions development
Efforts to build capacity to manage all aspects of conflict focus on the means necessary to strengthen the region and regional institutions especially in four areas:
Prevention, management and resolution of conflict • Peacemaking, peacekeeping and peace enforcement • Pose conflict reconciliation, rehabilitation and reconstruction • Combating the illicit proliferation of small arms, light weapons and landmines.

I further found this bit of info;
"Oxfam America is a global organization working to right the wrongs of poverty, hunger, and injustice. We save lives, develop long-term solutions to poverty, and campaign for social change. As one of 17 members of the international Oxfam confederation, we work with people in more than 90 countries to create lasting solutions.

"A massive and poorly regulated global trade in arms and ammunition continues to threaten the security and rights of countless children, women, and men around the world, exposing them to death, rape, assault, and displacement. An international Arms Trade Treaty — up for a new round of negotiations at the UN March 18-28 — would establish global rules for cross-border trade, helping to keep weapons out of the hands of human rights abusers and war criminals.

Responsible gun owners don't want arms to end up in the wrong hands, and responsible nations shouldn't either. Yet, the NRA and its allies are spreading lies aimed at building opposition to the treaty. They’re distorting the truth by claiming that an international arms treaty would infringe on American Constitutional rights – even though domestic rights are beyond the scope of the treaty.

In Congress, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) is leading an effort to combat the NRA's lies with the facts and to encourage the Obama administration to support a strong treaty. As the world's leading arms supplier, the United States has a special responsibility to provide the leadership necessary to ensure agreement on the treaty. Join us in asking Senators to sign on to her letter."

Then, I saw this on Reuters!
(Reuters) - Three dozen arms control and human rights groups have written to U.S. President Barack Obama ahead of new arms-trade negotiations at the United Nations next month, urging him to back a tough treaty that would end loopholes in international weapons sales.

The 36 groups that co-authored the letter include Amnesty International USA, Arms Control Association, Friends Committee on National Legislation, Oxfam America, National Association of Evangelicals and other groups.
Arms control campaigners say one person every minute dies worldwide as a result of armed violence and a convention is needed to prevent the unregulated and illicit flow of weapons into conflict zones and fueling wars and atrocities.

The point of the treaty is to set standards for all cross-border transfers of any type of conventional weapon - light and heavy. It also would set binding requirements for nations to review all cross-border arms contracts to ensure the munitions will not be used in human rights abuses, do not violate embargoes and are not illegally diverted.

Deputy U.S. National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden confirmed the White House had received the letter, saying it "raises a number of important issues." She said Washington would support a treaty under certain conditions.

"The March 2013 Arms Trade Treaty Conference will seek an Arms Trade Treaty that will contribute to international security, (and) protect the sovereign right of states to conduct legitimate arms trade," she said in an email that provided the most extensive public U.S. statement on the treaty in months.
The ATT is part of a larger global effort begun in 2001 with the adoption of a non-legally binding program of action at the United Nations Conference on the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All Its Aspects in 2001. This program was formally called the “Programme of Action to Prevent, Combat and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All Its Aspects” (PoA). Wikipedia
