    Obama Reveals Anti-Gun U.N. Intent; Sends Ex-Seattle Mayor as Rep - Yahoo! News

    Nickels was a terrible mayor. Sam Adams is also terrible (why is he still mayor of Portland again?). The UN is terrible too.

    I don't believe the US will join any UN treaties that ban guns. Many countries such as Switzerland, Finland, Sweden, Canada, and others will not go along with something like that either. Democrats are going to have a hard enough time this election already because everyone hates their economic policies now, they will not be banning guns any time soon.

    Local News | Seattle gun ban ordered drawn up by Mayor Greg Nickels | Seattle Times Newspaper
    Nickels was willing to try to use trespass laws to circumvent state preemption laws. He's a gun grabber. He's also a member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns. Is there a mayor in that organization who's not a gun grabber?

    I seriously doubt we can legally enter into a treaty to "ban guns" given the recent 2nd amendment cases and Reid v. Covert which states the Constitution supersedes treaties. Nickels may ignore those details because he has already demonstrated he's willing to ignore the law as long as it coincides with his beliefs.

    All it takes is a majority of judges on the bench to reinterpret the Constitution. Look at how the interpretation of the separation of church and state has been redefined.

    Thanks for your local prespective. Sounds like a man who bears watching.

    While Nickels is no friend of 2A issues, I'd guess this has more to do with his connections to the Obama Administration (Locke is Sec. or Commerce and Sims is doing something in HUD) & the fact that his gig at Harvard may be winding down so he needs a new job. Yes - he deserves to be watched on this issue - but I doubt the primary motivation is to have him sign some UN gun ban treaty.

    The problem is that this appointment is ONE MORE signal from the Obama admin about its anti-gun philosophy.

    He named former Seattle Police Chief Gil Kerlikowske as the drug czar
    Gary Lock (former anti-gun governor) is at Commerce
    Anti-gunner Eric Holder is AG
    Anti-gunner Janet Napolitano is HS
    Rahm Emanuel is CoS
    Hillary is at State

    Greg Nickels is in a perfect spot to represent the anti-gun views of this admin to the world
