tjweeks, one thing that can give you some peace is that the majority of the UN troops are made up of mostly volunteers from weak third world countries like Bangladesh and Ethiopia. It's a joke what they're paid too. I would bet that even a seasoned hunter here in the U.S. has more survival and strategy skills. Also those blue helmets really stand out. They would make great targets.

Just went for reloading supplies. My LGS was well stocked, with limits of 2 boxes on 9, .380, and .223. I load the last and own nothing that shoots the others. Clerk said it is hoarding. Folks are scared.

I was more frightened for the unmasked customers, one dragging an oxygen tank. Me and the staff were masked, and a few others. Black gun And handgun sections were jammed with buyers. Fishing section, and ammo area, mellow. Ditto the lever gun area where I love to linger. I fondled a .44 Henry Big Boy Steel, a possible 2021 gun for me.

I did have to mail order a 4 lb jug of Red Dot and some shotgun wads. Everyone around here was out, though I did spy some at the same LGS Who showed it out of stock on their Web page.

That is not panic...shooters of clays go through a lot of powder this time of year.

there was some United Nations Charter from not that far in the past that called for all nations to disarm their citizens and Obama (I think) signed it.
A president can sign all kinds of treaties BUT they mean absolutely nothing until the Senate confirms them. The Senate did not and would not confirm that one. It didn't exactly call for all the countries to disarm their citizens, but that was the underlying meaning and goal of the thing.

Do you really think your local Law Enforcement Officers would act on this order?
I don't think that the local LE would enforce this but I do believe that with the addition of more anti gun politicians , Yes-I think they would. It is like I had said earlier that I don't think Our military would enforce this either but years back the Chinese had volunteered through a UN Charter that they would do the disarming. I know this sounds like BS I am just retelling what I had heard.

I have a different theory...

If Beto and Biden are smart (which is unlikely, but they have minions), they are not about to send a LEO (whatever they end up being) into harms way to confront a difficult gun owner. With the current computerized society, everybody is on the internet and there are other ways.

So you get a letter telling you to bring in your black guns for a government voucher. And you ignore it, what can they do?

-push a button and your social security is held
-same with medicare
-no drivers license
-garnish your paycheck
-hold your tax refund
-hold any government benefit
-freeze your assets

Will this stand up in court? Who knows? But don't assume they will do this the dumb way.

For this very reason, I have bought about half of my soon to be illegal toys on the used market where no forms are required. Sure, all the above is a long shot bordering on hysteria. About as likely as shutting down the world for a flu and the takeover of the USA from the inside by leftist, anarchist, socialist......I need a drink.

was talk about how Obama would ask (or allow) UN troops to come in and do the dirty work. All this got my curiosity up, so I dug in to see if there could be any truth to that and apparently there was some United Nations Charter from not that far in the past that called for all nations to disarm their citizens and Obama (I think) signed it.
There’s nothing like spreading false information....I found an executive order, but it doesn’t paint the same picture you do concerning use of the UN.

As far a United Nations Charter that Obama signed calling for the disarming of their citizens I found ZERO. If you can provide a link please do........”I think” doesn’t make it factual.

There are the riots and threats of massive death from the covid virus. Here in Oklahoma it has killed 5 times more in the first 5 months than all three of the flu viruses killed last year. That makes it about 11 times more deadly than the flu, that just raises the stress level.
You can't say it's more deadly than the flu until you know how many people have had it.

Lets say the flu killed 10 people and 1000 people caught it. That's a 1% death rate.

Covid kills 50 people and you assume it's 5x more deadly than the flu. But the thing you are missing is that 50,000 people caught Covid. That makes the death rate 1%

The majority of people who catch Covid show no or very minor symptoms. It also appears to spread much more easily than the flu.

This is from the year 2020...........so it’s got to do with Obama how?? The executive order is from 2016..........the guy’s no longer charge of anything, it means nothing since most executive orders have been rescinded.
You are wrong, but I am not going to ruin everybody's fun here by taking it further.

The first article you linked clearly says 3 Jan 2020......the executive order you linked clearly says July 1, 2016........so you tell me who’s wrong?? I’ll stick with my first post and leave it at that. (y)
