Close Call

May 5 | Posted by: Charlie | Tags: Politics

Something diabolical, something that would have adversely affected the rights of every American came frighteningly close to happening in the US Senate last year and I'll bet you didn't even know it was happening, I know I didn't.

On March 23, 2013, an amendment to “uphold the Second Amendment and prevent the United States from entering into United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (United Nations Resolution 2117)” which lists 21 points dealing with firearm control, was narrowly passed by the U.S. Senate 53-46. One of the points is for member states to support collection and disarmament of all UN countries, in other words your second amendment rights would have been given over to the most corrupt, inept, America hating organization on the planet, the United Nations, came dangerously close to being ratified by the US Senate.

And here's the frightening part, 46 out of 100 Senators voted against this amendment and basically FOR this piece of garbage, 46 members of the United States Senate voted to subvert your constitutionally guaranteed rights to keep and bear arms and I'm willing to wager that you didn't even know it was going on.

Well, operating in the shadows is simply not acceptable, passing American citizen's rights off to a despicable outfit like the United Nations is not only a violation of trust but shows you what this arrogant bunch of stuffed shirts think of their constituents.

Here is a list of the 46 Senators who voted to ratify a treaty that could have made it illegal for you to own firearms:

Baldwin (D-WI)
Baucus (D-MT)
Bennett (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)
Gillibrand (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)
Reed (D-RI)
Reid (D-NV)
Rockefeller (D-WV)
Sanders (I-VT)
Schatz (D-HI)
Schumer (D-NY)
Shaheen (D-NH)
Stabenow (D-MI)
Udall (D-CO)
Udall (D-NM)
Warner (D-VA)
Warren (D-MA)
Whitehouse (D-RI)
Wyden (D-OR)

These supposed public servants took it upon themselves to ignore the Constitution they swore to uphold and betray the people who put them in office, which in my book is tantamount to selling out America.

These people want America disarmed, helpless and totally dependent on government. These people are dangerous; they are enemies of individual freedom, enemies of the constitution and enemies of the American way of life.

They are self-serving, backstabbing hacks who can't operate in the open because they know the people who elected them would never approve of what they're doing.

They are without honor and without conscience and should be held to account for what they tried to do to America.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America

OK, I guess they all DID go through, after a LONG time. Don't know if I want to participate any more like this.

Last one didn't work... will this?

OK. This is different. Guess all the old comments are gone? On the up side, looks like all the (new) comments are getting archived along with all the old soapboxes, something I had been wishing for for a long time.

Also, just checking this out. Learning the interface.

It would require a two-thirds majority in the Senate to ratify a treaty, and this particular vote was a non-binding resolution regarding whether or not the U.S. government should even be involved, not a vote on the Arms Trade a Treaty ratification itself. The ATT is unlikely to ever received the required two-thirds Senate vote.

I actually went to the ArTT's official Web page www.un.org/disarmament/ATT/ and actually read the text of the ATT. It does not appear to mention a total ban on gun ownership. The treaty's preamble does appear to recognize the use of private firearms for certain reasons.

Just checkin it out. God Bless Plowboy
