Old NFO lets a little-known secret regarding the United Nations Global Arms Trade Treaty out of the bag. To wit:
Individuals 55 and older would lose their right to keep and bear arms under a provision that’s expected to be included as part of a comprehensive United Nations Global Arms Trade Treaty.
Seriously? Ban Ki-moon further said:
“But also, the international community believes segments of the population that present a danger to themselves and others, chiefly individuals deemed or adjudicated mentally defective and persons with attenuating cerebral faculties, should be added to that list.”
So persons determined to be mentally defective, and persons with attenuating cerebral faculties are on ‘the list’! What exactly does THAT mean? Older? As in over 55?
No wonder the Obama Administration is pushing so hard for a mental health component for background checks, universal background checks, etc. If the government determines you are mentally defective (whatever THAT means) or have attenuating cerebral faculties (i.e. getting older) you can be included in the ban regarding possession and ownership of firearms.
I’m reminded of the scene in the film Jurassic Park, wherein it’s observed the velociraptors are noted to be continually testing the fences for weaknesses; never the same place twice. The folks who love to control your rights will keep testing the fences.

April Fool’s Joke!
I certainly hope so!
