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 2ndAmendment Constitutional Rights to the U.N.
________________________________

Actually, these people need to be immediately removed from Office for Treason!
When elected, these people took an oath "To protect and defend the U. S. Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic." In fact when they voted to remove the Second Amendment of That Constitution and transfer OUR Unalienable right to the U. N. where it will be abolished! These people failed to uphold their ‘Solemn Oath’ and thereby, and therefore, they themselves, became domestic enemies of the United States.

NOW, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?!

RIGHT NOW …EVIL WILL WIN IF GOOD MEN ACCEPT THIS AND DO NOTHING!

NEXT TIME …SUCH INSANITY COULD PASS …THEN WE HAVE A REAL PROBLEM …ONE THAT WILL INVOLVE…

"BLOODSHED OR SLAVERY!"

I PROPOSE THEY ALL BE IMPEACHED…RIGHT NOW!!!

If, you have really read the above article, and consider the intense battle to "Restrict" the ownership, and transfer of long-guns in the United States via the "Assault Weapons Ban", you may begin to understand what is really happening in this country.

The ‘Assault Weapons Ban’ will take away almost all Long-Guns.
The ‘U.N. Small Arms Treaty’ will take away ALL Hand-Guns.
(At that point it will be "…reasonable to outlaw ALL remaining guns…!)

Perhaps this will awaken those of you who think gun owners / The NRA, are being ‘radical’ about "Gun Control" when we tell you this is about people control not gun control. Dictatorship …Slavery … The irretrievable loss of you FREEDOM!

Men who have guns …cannot be controlled …against their will and without their consent.

Men without the means of self-defense … Men who have no guns …are Slaves!!!

Unarmed Peoples are easy prey!!!

WAKE UP – THERE IS A CONSPIRACY …AND THIS IS IT!!! Are you aware the United Nations is dominated by Muslim Nations? Check it out! WE’RE OUT NUMBERED! DO YOU REALLY WANT THOSE PEOPLE VOTING ON YOUR FREEDOM?! WE ALSO NEED TO GET OUT OF THE U.N. …IT NO LONGER IS WHAT IT WAS SET UP TO BE!

Canada not among 60 countries signing landmark treaty on world arms tradeWaterloo Region Record

OTTAWA — Canada isn’t saying whether it will join more than 60 other countries in signing a landmark treaty to regulate the multibillion-dollar global arms trade.

The federal government hasn’t decided whether it agrees with the UN’s arms trade treaty, despite having voted to move it ahead in the first place, Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird said Monday.

"We believe that any treaty regarding the sale of munitions that helps move the international community closer to world-leading standards is a good thing," Baird said during question period.

"We participated actively in these discussions. I think we have an obligation to listen before we act, and that is why we will be consulting with Canadians before the government takes any decision."

Those who ratify the treaty will have to establish national regulations to control the transfer of conventional arms and components and to regulate arms brokers, though it won’t control the domestic use of weapons in any country.

The treaty also prohibits the transfer of conventional weapons if they violate arms embargoes or if they promote acts of genocide, crimes against humanity or war crimes, and if they could be used in attacks on civilians or civilian buildings such as schools and hospitals.

In defending the decision not to sign immediately, Baird suggested the government sees a potential link between signing on to the treaty and the now-abolished long gun registry.

He accused the opposition of trying to find a back door to setting up the system anew by suggesting Canada should sign on — a suggestion the New Democrats called ridiculous.

"This is about people in places like the Congo. This is actually about preventing Syria. This is about what happened in Sudan," said NDP foreign affairs critic Paul Dewar.

"It was a very poor display of our minister of foreign affairs on a very serious subject, and he should not only apologize, but he should get up and explain: what the hell was he thinking?"

What impact the treaty will have in curbing the global arms trade — estimated at between $60 billion and $85 billion — remains to be seen. A lot depends on which countries ratify and which ones don’t, and how aggressively it is implemented once it comes into force.

The United States has said it will sign soon, making it a point of saying they don’t see the treaty as a threat to gun laws in their country.

The treaty "will not undermine the legitimate international trade in conventional weapons, interfere with national sovereignty, or infringe on the rights of American citizens, including our Second Amendment rights" to bear arms, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said.

Baird’s spokesperson later said Canada was instrumental in ensuring language in the treaty that would also recognize legitimate civilian use of firearms for sporting, hunting and collecting.

Given the fact the U.S., with its strong pro-gun lobby, will sign the treaty makes Canada’s position all the more depressing, Dewar said.

"This is an important global issue. This is about preventing more conflict. And so it shows you how far behind we are, that this government is living in the past," Dewar said.

"They will not recognize the present circumstances nor the future of how we avoid conflict. And so it is embarrassing. It’s unfortunate."

Word that the U.S. — the world’s largest arms dealer — would sign is critical, but the treaty’s ultimate strength rests on support by all major arms exporters and importers.

Key arms exporters including Russia and China and major importers including India and Egypt abstained and have given no indication yet that they will sign it.

Britain and France, however, have signed alongside emerging exporters such as Brazil and Mexico.

The Control Arms Coalition, which includes hundreds of non-governmental organizations in over 100 countries that promoted an arms trade treaty, said many violence-racked countries including Congo and South Sudan are also expected to sign in the coming weeks and months, and the coalition said their signature — and ratification — will make it more difficult for illicit arms to cross borders.

The coalition said the treaty is designed "to protect millions living in daily fear of armed violence and at risk of rape, assault, displacement and death," stressing that more than 500,000 people are killed by armed violence every year.

Oxfam urged Canada to sign.

"By not signing the arms trade treaty today, Canada did not listen to the millions of people that live in fear of armed violence," Lina Holguin of Oxfam Quebec said in a statement.

"For the past ten years, Canada has heard from Canadians, members of Parliament, arms exporter countries and countries affected by armed violence about the urgency to control and open the arms trade to scrutiny."

Thank goodness . . !

The NRA is working diligently to protect our freedoms.

I’d been a member for a few years . . . and in January became a life time member.

Lets all continue e-mailing to appropriate representatives (both state and national) . . regarding any and all proposed legislation that restricts any of our freedoms as outlined in the bill or rights. 🙂

It sounds like Obama will sign it from what Kerry says so its up to the Senate and Congress to stop it.

Quote from Fox news:

"Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday that the Obama administration would sign a controversial U.N. treaty on arms regulation, despite bipartisan resistance in Congress from members concerned it could lead to new gun control measures in the U.S.

Kerry, releasing a written statement as the U.N. treaty opened for signature Monday, said the U.S. "welcomes" the next phase for the treaty, which the U.N. General Assembly approved on April 2."

I just took the time to Google "IOWA SENATORS" and wrote a short note to the Senator from Iowa who voted for this. Hope all of you do the same to the Senators from your State. Peter

I thought it took 2/3 of senate to ratify a treaty, not a simple majority vote. I think that if it does not pass the senate that treaty can stay on the books indefinitely to be voted on again at a future date. Am I wrong here??

The ignorance and arrogance of these Dems is unfathomable. It turns my stomach.

And no treaty trumps the constitution. Granted it can mess with our importation of firearms, But inside the USA it will have no effect.

Normally I would agree with you but with the current administration I would not put it past them to use it to get their foot in the door. From what I have been seeing on the news they don’t seem to worry about the Constitution.
