      Jan Fry WWP Member (rockysma1@...) Does anyone know, what is exactly in the UN Small Arms Treaty (A.T.T. ) ?

      The treaty applies only to international transfers of conventional arms and, in fact, reaffirms "the sovereign right of any State to regulate and control conventional arms" within its territory. The treaty’s preamble also makes specific reference to the legitimate trade, lawful ownership and use of certain conventional arms for recreational, cultural, historical and sporting activities.

      The treaty would not force anything new upon the United States or upon American companies, because federal laws and regulations already require United States arms manufacturers to comply with a comprehensive export control system, one designed to keep American weapons out of the hands of human rights abusers and other bad actors. The treaty would simply level the playing field for our defense industry in the international marketplace by making other countries follow the same rules. This is good for American businesses.



      The A.T.T. would help prevent the irresponsible and illegal transfer of conventional arms to commit violations of human rights and international humanitarian law. It would unscrupulous arms dealers from operating with impunity. It would provide at least some transparency and accountability in the arms trade. And it would establish common international standards for the trade in conventional arms — rules of the game, essentially — that countries must incorporate into national control systems. While the A.T.T. would not stop conflict overnight — and enforcement of its provisions, which is the responsibility of each ratifying country, is likely to remain an open question for years — it would most likely slow the spread of weapons that fuel conflicts and crime by making it harder for rogue regimes, rebel groups, terrorist organizations and criminals to get weapons.


      As authored, the 2nd Amendment --- no matter how one parse it --- does not guarantee gun ownership. What it does, it grants federal and state regulations.

      SSI benefits differ from Social Security. SSI is basically a federal tax supported supplement income with Medicare benefits. If able to be covered by health insurance, one is not entitled to Medicaid. As when one needs medical coverage, cost of medical is covered by both health insurance and Medicare. Prescription drugs are covered by health insurance up to 85%. However, a disabled can apply for food stamps

      If a disabled person receive SSI benefits, which is NOT Social Security, a disabled person can only earn X-amount. When over, SSI income is reduced. For instance ... if additional income exceeds $2, SSI check is reduced $2. Failure to report earnings above allotted, result in losing SSI income plus additional fine.

      Gary Beauregard aka Bear (beau@...) There has been some concern, recently, in the firearms community about the impact of the UN Small Arms Treaty that Obama just signed. I gave it little thought, for the very reason you mentioned. It's provided for in the Constitution. If the UN wants to seize my firearms, they had best send some very experienced troops since I see nothing legitimate, in US law or UN law, that over rides our Constitutional rights

      Echo WWP Web Member and Poster (Echos70@...) Gun owner ship is provided under the Constitution of the US period and that
      has not changed period.

      Welfare in general gives the State or STATES that provides the assistance the right to place a JUDGEMENT on all property you have and may accumulate to pay off the debt. The State does not give you SSI/Welfare they provide that until you are able to help your self. Check your local County clerks office and see how much your JUDGEMENT is to date for assistance.

      My 100% disabled Grand daughter has a lean for 1 hundred and 65
      thousand dollars here in Florida for the MEDICADE difference on herPrimary provider, Blue Cross Federal insurance. She cannot inherit any thing or the State has a right to take it. This is common practice in all States I know of.
