Over the weekend, we came four votes away from the United States Senate giving our Constitutional rights over to the United Nations. In a 53-46 vote, the senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.
The Statement of Purpose from the bill read:
To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.
The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms. The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S., and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry on all private guns and ammo.
Astonishingly, 46 of our United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional rights to a foreign power.
Here are the 46 senators that voted to give your rights to the U.N. Notice that ALL are either Democrat or "Independent."



Baldwin (D-WI)
Baucus (D-MT)
Bennet (D-CO)
Blumenthal (D-CT)
Boxer (D-CA)
Brown (D-OH)
Cantwell (D-WA)

Outrageous and forwarded. Once again, this highlights the need to be involved on a local level telling your friends and family in person, as well as strangers you meet on the street the vital importance of ousting these troublemakers.

Also Dirty Harry Reid, voted for it; needless to say I gave him a piece of my mind, 'cause obviously he doesn't have one. He did state that this was his last term, I sure as heck I hope he isn't kidding.:fire:

As angered as I am to hear that these treacherous fools chose to surrender a part of rights to the "blue helmet brigade", from the locations listed next to their names, I suspect that most of them shall see re-election to another term by their constituency.

I am also equally pleased to hear that the measure to put an end to the US's participation in the ATT passed.

Hard to look at these lists over the past few days and not blame a certain party for trying to destroy the 2nd Amendment. Surprised Manchin didn't vote for it too.

Lautenberg didn't vote, but I think it's safe to assume he'd have sided with the blue helmets...

His vote would have made 47. The Senate must ratify a treaty by 67 votes (2/3 majority). The blue helmets are 20 votes short- this treaty will not be ratified, ever.

If the antis had 67 votes in the Senate, we'd have much bigger problems, anyway.

I am embarrassed to live in MN with the two crack pots we have representing us in the senate. Klobuchar and Franken have to be the worst. They have voted Yea to every gun grabbing legislation presented to them. Franken is up in 14 and I hope we can convince enough here to get him out. :fire: I keep sending letters and emails but I know it falls on deaf ears every time. I would have better luck doing this all day :banghead::banghead::banghead: then getting them to listen to reason.

How many have actually asked their Senators why they are in favor of the UN Small Arms Trade Treaty?

I'm serious. Both my Senators are for the UN ATT and frankly they won't answer/don't answer as to why. To me, this is disturbing. They are just following the "D" crowd, most likely. At least they could answer with "It's for the children of the world". If an duly elected US Senator cannot have the common courtesy to explain their position, it seems like further erosion of the representative republic.

I'm curious what others have received in answer to such a query.

Great UN Gun Debate from the Library of Kings College London 2004
on the motion:
"Should the United States Senate Support the Proposed UN Treaty that Bans Private Ownership of Guns?"
moderated by British TV personality Paul Lavers
aired on US pay TV from October 20-30 2004.

Pro was Rebecca Peters, Director of IANSA (International Action Network on Small Arms), and Con was Wayne LaPierre, director of the NRA ILA (National Rifle Association of America Institute for Legislative Action). Representatives of Gun Control Network were in the audience.

NRA circulated a DVD of the whole debate.
IANSA published a edited transcript.

Bottom line: American citizens are not special and they should follow the same rules on private guns as IANSA has made for Australians and Brits, only imposed by the UN.

I do not know of this is what you think our what was said but the whole reason that we are our own country is to do what we believe is right for OUR people. I could care less about playing nice with another country. We have our rights and if another country wants to fight about it I will risk life and limb to stand for what I believe in (which I have already proven).

My only issue right now is that the people we (saying it as the country as a whole) put in power are the ones that are trying to destroy us. To physically fight tyranny now would end you, your family (in name) and cause.

Justifying my means with their end.

I feel your pain. Don't you just love the "canned" responses from these two idiots, when you write them. I'm sure neither of these two have ever had an original idea in their lives.

but since the incorporation of Heller, a number have expressed that the treaty would be moot, and likely to be tossed wholesale

Easy to see where a certain party stands on the second amendment. Anyone who sees this list and still has any doubt about which party is telling the gun owners of America to shove it is in total denial.

That is for sure. I have yet to get anything but the canned crap from these two. I sometimes wonder if they even read anything anyone sends to them or just ignore it as a hole and do whatever the heck they want? I think they do. I think next time I see one of them at the state fair or anywhere else I will see if they have an original thought or not. I am thinking NOT.

+1 brother. I don't understand how we can elect guys like Justin Amash to the House, but re-elect 'people' like Levin and Stabenow to the Senate. I think Detroit, Flint, et al have a little to do with it. :rolleyes:

Kaine didn't surprise me, Warner somewhat.

I have already let Mark Warner that I will dedicate time and treasure to ensure he isn't re-elected next November.

In case you didn't know. The two biggest monitary supporters of this treay were the country of japan and our very own Pepsico.
Keep that in mind the next time you want to buy any pepsi products.
Also, do your own research and see just how much pepsico owns.

It completely baffles me when i see gun clubs with pepsi machgines in them.:confused:

I used the NRA-ILA site to send the following to Kaine and Warner. I also enjoy posting on their Facebook pages.... ;-)

As your constituent, I would like a clear explanation why you voted 'Nay' on the Amendment (Inhofe Amdt. No. 139 ) to uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.

The U.N.’s actions to date indicate that the Arms Trade Treaty is likely to pose significant threats to our national security, foreign policy, and economic interests as well as our constitutional rights. Even former U.N. ambassador John Bolton has cautioned gun owners to take the initiative seriously. He believes that the U.N. “is trying to act as though this is really just a treaty about international arms trade between nation states, but there is no doubt that the real agenda here is domestic firearms control."

I have serious issues with this treaty. While it affirms states’ rights to self -defense, the text makes no mention of civilians’ rights to defend themselves. Since most of world’s constitutions don’t contain an individual right to bear arms, the likely result will be to strengthen the grip of governments in the international flow of arms. I am also concerned that this treaty might use it as a pretext not to sell weapons to allies like Israel and Taiwan, or to restrict the import of firearms and ammunition for individual end users.

It is particularly disturbing that one provision in the treaty requires participating countries to keep records of arms exports and imports, including the quantity, value, model/type, and "end users, as appropriate" for at least 10 years.

After looking at the bill and the possible ramifications, I can't help but conclude that you've sold out the 2nd Amendment in favor of global gun control.

I would your response so I may better understand your rationale for voting Nay to the amendment opposing this treaty.

I was cleaning out my mailbox and noticed that I had 41 messages from Sen. Mark Warner. He probably has more messages that he hasn't responded to yet.

Funny, but I never thought that we would become such pen pals.

I'm sure that Kaine has just as many, but he's a lost cause and doesn't usually answer.

Eric Cantor, in my district, is pretty much unreachable by email-- A point I'll be sure to remember at election time.
