    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)
    Cardin (D-MD)
    Carper (D-DE)
    Casey (D-PA)
    Coons (D-DE)
    Cowan (D-MA)
    Durbin (D-IL)
    Feinstein (D-CA)
    Franken (D-MN)
    Gellibrand (D-NY)
    Harkin (D-IA)
    Hirono (D-HI)
    Johnson (D-SD)
    Kaine (D-VA)
    King (I-ME)
    Klobuchar (D-MN)
    Landrieu (D-LA)
    Leahy (D-VT)
    Levin (D-MI)
    McCaskill (D-MO)
    Menendez (D-NJ)
    Merkley (D-OR)
    Mikulski (D-MD)
    Murphy (D-CT)
    Murray (D-WA)
    Nelson (D-FL)

    People this needs to go viral. These Senators voted to let the UN take our guns. They need to lose the election. We have been betrayed. These
    46 Senators Voted to Give your 2nd Amendment Constitutional Rights to the U.N.


    Don’t expect to build up the weak
    by pulling down the strong

    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.

    Levin & Stabenow routinely vote to desecrate the Bill of Rights. Levin cannot retire soon enough! I only hope this blue state will elect a non-Democrat senator to replace him!

    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.

    All the reason I needed to oppose the UN ATT

    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 just sent a scathing email to Sen. Claire Obama-McCaskill. I asked for any kind of communication, other than a form letter.
    I want answers.

    Scathing.....

    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.

    So this is my take, AN IN NO WAY DO I LESSON WHAT THOSE TRAITOR DID
    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.
