What UN treaty do you refer at? You say, you're not fully informed - but how did you here about this treaty when nothing about it has been published?
Snopes to the rescue: http://www.snopes.com/politics/guns/untreaty.asp
There is no UN proposal to ban guns. Never has been one.

I guess oralloy came along to prove you wrong.
You will find the link no longer works, because the UN is now hiding their documents relating to the treaty effort, apparently so people can ignore all the times it was cited in the past, and use the absence of a live cite to pretend that the UN never talked of such a thing.
He may or may not be able to, but I certainly can.

"hiding" - You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
Actually, you didn't. You took something out of context in a guide that states this.....

This isn't a treaty at all oralloy.
You are so full of **** your eyes are oozing brown.
One of them leads to an "not authorized to view this" type of message.
Really? And where is this treaty. Please give us the text to prove snopes wrong.
"States should work towards the introduction of appropriate national legislation, administrative regulations and licensing requirements that define conditions under which firearms can be acquired, used and traded by private persons. In particular, they should consider the prohibition of unrestricted trade and private ownership of small arms and light weapons specifically designed for military purposes, such as automatic guns (e.g., assault rifles and machine guns)."
"20. To seriously consider the prohibition of unrestricted trade and private ownership of small arms and light weapons specifically designed for military purposes."
(b) State Parties undertake to :
(iii) prohibit the civilian possession of semi-automatic and automatic rifles....
If some of the links are to the "gun ban plot" then surely you can point to the text in those documents.
A guide to countries for gun legislation is NOT a gun ban.
Claiming parts of the guide are an attempt to ban guns in the US is very much taking the words out of context.
Let's recap here oralloy.
You have been on a rant for several days about how the UN is attempting to take you guns away.
You admit that the US is not part to any treaty that would do that. Ergo, you are irrational because there is no current threat.
You have claimed the US Senate will never ratify any such treaty.
Without the ratification the US will not be party to the treaty so if such a treaty existed it would not apply to the US.
Ergo, you are irrational because you claim there is no possibility of the threat.
You claim there is no text of this supposed treaty. Yet you claim the treaty will ban guns when you have not read any such treaty. Ergo, you are irrational because you are afraid of something that you admit doesn't exist.
THE NAIROBI PROTOCOL FOR THE PREVENTION, CONTROL AND
REDUCTION OF SMALL ARMS AND LIGHT WEAPONS IN THE GREAT LAKES
REGION AND THE HORN OF AFRICA
Not quite. I've merely pointed out that that is what they wish to achieve with their supposed treaty.
So did the boys in the blue helmets show up at your house yet, Oralloy? God, you hysterical types crack me up.
Do you need the word "consider" explained to you?
The US isn't required to ban any guns under your quotes.
I wonder why you feel the US has to be worried about the Nairobi protocol
You haven't pointed out anything they wish to achieve.
You have only shown us your paranoid delusions about what you think they might be plotting.
One would require facts.
