    Honestly I'm not too concerned. No treaty can supercede the US Constitution and no court could therefore hold up any attempted sanctions on US firearms mfg's.

    SA 2575. Mr. LAUTENBERG (for himself, Mrs. BOXER, Mr. REED, Mr. MENENDEZ, Mrs. GILLIBRAND, Mr. SCHUMER, and Mrs. FEINSTEIN) submitted an amendment intended to be proposed by him to the bill S. 3414, to enhance the security and resiliency of the cyber and communications infrastructure of the United States; which was ordered to lie on the table; as follows:


    At the appropriate place, insert the following

    SEC. __. PROHIBITION ON TRANSFER OR POSSESSION OF LARGE CAPACITY AMMUNITION FEEDING DEVICES.

    (a) Definition.--Section 921(a) of title 18, United States Code, is amended by inserting after paragraph (29) the following:

    ``(30) The term `large capacity ammunition feeding device'--

    ``(A) means a magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device that has a capacity of, or that can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than 10 rounds of ammunition; but

    ``(B) does not include an attached tubular device designed to accept, and capable of operating only with, .22 caliber rimfire ammunition.''.

    (b) Prohibitions.--Section 922 of such title is amended by inserting after subsection (u) the following:

    ``(v)(1)(A)(i) Except as provided in clause (ii), it shall be unlawful for a person to transfer or possess a large capacity ammunition feeding device.

    [Page: S5403] ``(ii) Clause (i) shall not apply to the possession of a large capacity ammunition feeding device otherwise lawfully possessed within the United States on or before the date of the enactment of this subsection.

    ``(B) It shall be unlawful for any person to import or bring into the United States a large capacity ammunition feeding device.

    ``(2) Paragraph (1) shall not apply to--

    ``(A) a manufacture for, transfer to, or possession by the United States or a department or agency of the United States or a State or a department, agency, or political subdivision of a State, or a transfer to or possession by a law enforcement officer employed by such an entity for purposes of law enforcement (whether on or off duty);

    ``(B) a transfer to a licensee under title I of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 for purposes of establishing and maintaining an on-site physical protection system and security organization required by Federal law, or possession by an employee or contractor of such a licensee on-site for such purposes or off-site for purposes of licensee-authorized training or transportation of nuclear materials;

    ``(C) the possession, by an individual who is retired from service with a law enforcement agency and is not otherwise prohibited from receiving ammunition, of a large capacity ammunition feeding device transferred to the individual by the agency upon that retirement; or

    ``(D) a manufacture, transfer, or possession of a large capacity ammunition feeding device by a licensed manufacturer or licensed importer for the purposes of testing or experimentation authorized by the Attorney General.''.

    (c) Penalties.--Section 924(a) of such title is amended by adding at the end the following:

    ``( 8 ) Whoever knowingly violates section 922(v) shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 10 years, or both.''.

    (d) Identification Markings.--Section 923(i) of such title is amended by adding at the end the following: ``A large capacity ammunition feeding device manufactured after the date of the enactment of this sentence shall be identified by a serial number that clearly shows that the device was manufactured after such date of enactment, and such other identification as the Attorney General may by regulation prescribe.''.

    Considering how the current court has literally been all over the place one day insisting on the letter and intent of The Constitution be honored and then turning back flips to grant federal power that has never existed anywhere in it valid you could very well be right.

    I really believe though that even the far left wacko's know they don't want to push it to an all out showdown of the 2nd Amendment.

    The cost to the country in the long term of same would be staggering.

    As Hesston and the old bumper sticker said, .... Only from my Cold, Dead, Fingers.

    Looks like the UN arms Treaty is a dead duck. Check out NRA/ILA. Obama evidently folded his tent with all the political pressure and a majority petition from the Senate refusing to pass it if there was any effect on the 2nd Amendment. We should never drop our guard though!

    Grey you beat me to it! Here's a quote:

    According to GRASSROOTS Alert No.30 the UN ATT Conference has come to an impasse. "The Conference on the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (U.N. ATT) has broken down and will NOT report a draft treaty to the member nations."

    Thank YOU National Rifle Association.

    No single organization has ever had our back the way the NRA does.

    So long as Obama and Pelosi and Reid and the rest of them are there, there will always be attacks on the right to possess firearms by the citizens....

    Best cure is to remove or not reelect them again, especially Obama. Reid and Pelosi.
