Your Liberty -- as a United States citizen -- was weakened and threatened yesterday when the Obama Administration helped the United Nations pass the Arms Trade Treaty. Immediately after this disappointing vote, I wrote a letter to President Obama urging him not to sign the treaty.

If the President signs the treaty allowing the UN to be involved in regulating firearms in the U.S., Texas will lead the charge to have the treaty overturned in court as a violation of the U.S. Constitution.

I need your support. Please help us get the word out by referring 3 of your friends right now, and forwarding this email to 5 of your friends. Together, we can make a difference.
America is exceptional in part because our Constitution safeguards our individual liberties – including the right to keep and bear arms enshrined in the Second Amendment.

The new UN treaty threatens your rights:
• it doesn't recognize the individual right to keep and bear arms or the fundamental right to defend yourself, your family, or your property;
• it empowers a new UN bureaucracy focused on firearms restrictions that will be run by international bureaucrats who are not accountable to the people of the United States.
• it could impose firearm registration requirements that may empower international authorities to get information about American citizens and businesses.
This UN treaty does more than trample Second Amendment rights. It also threatens to erode all liberties guaranteed to Americans in the Constitution by giving the UN power to govern our lives.
Please refer 3 of your friends today and forward this important message to 5 of your friends right now. Your voice must be heard on this issue.
When the Constitution says, “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed,” it means no one—including the UN—can infringe upon that right.
UN treaties do not trump the Constitution. And with your help, we will make that message clear to President Obama and this administration.

Sincerely,


Greg Abbott

How many bogus stories today? Is this 5 or 6?


The Senate rejected the treaty 2 weeks ago. It's dead.
