another bit of mind boggling crap to read.  this has been around for a long time.  you can look up the current draft on the UN site.  it's another one of those things written in broad terms and packaged as a way to protect children, stop illegal arms sales, etc.

what it really does it tell you what you can and can't buy, according to what they determine our "needs" are.  it specifically mentions hand guns.  who need those?
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Obama's claim that he supports the 2nd amendment is just political rhetoric.  He has been anti-gun since 1st elected as a Illinois state legislator.  If he can get Congress to enact the provisions of what amounts to an international treaties, he can use them to override and nullify the US Constitution.  More than gun ownership is on the guillotine here.
