    is a scam. There is no treaty, or even a draft of one AFAIK. I mean really--it's the UN. All they do is talk. The stuff in question is already strictly controlled by US law or outright banned for civilian possession. And as KV mentions, no treaty can overrule the US constitution anyway.

    It's a fundraising ploy.

      Wayne was just going full tilt.  I swear I could hear the spit hit the mic.  The funny thing is they didn't ask for money or at least I didn't get that far in the call because I didn't answer the survey question.  I didn't expect to get a live person when I hit 0.  That was the fun part of the call.

        you get forwarded to a person, who will then pitch the request for money. The machine dials the numbers, and screens out those who hang up.

          I guess I circumvented the live person I talked to from asking for money.  I do know I kind of annoyed her.  I listened to the recorded part all the way through but didn't answer the stupid "survey" (how is one question a survey?).

            this same call, I had a rather spirited argument with the guy who came on after the recording of Wayne. He was surprised that I knew anything about the treaty, and took offense when I told him Wayne was a lying POS.

            He didn't ask me for any money, either ;-)
