    I got this from a friend in Hawaii. Yup, traitors are everywhere. But, as I am a WA resident.....I will vote accordingly to, "THROW THE BUMS OUT!"

    +++++

    THIS SHOWS JUST HOW MANY MEMBERS OF SENATE ARE TRYING TO CONTROL THOSE OF US WHOM THEY HAVE SWORN TO PROTECT THROUGH THE CONSTITUTION ! ! !
    _____


    HOORAY a 53-46 vote.The U.N. Resolution 2117 lists 21 points dealing with firearms control, but perhaps of most interest is point number 11.It: "CALLS FOR MEMBER STATES TO SUPPORT WEAPONS COLLECTION and DISARMAMENT OF ALL UNITED NATIONS COUNTRIES".By a 53-46 vote - The U.S. Senate voted against the U.N. resolution. HOORAY!!This is that brief, glorious moment in historywhen everyone stands around...reloading.

    Now, Which 46 Senators Voted to Destroy Us? Well, let their names become known ! See below .. If you vote in one of the states listed with these 46 "legislators" vote against them.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 Senate Bill reads: "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, now get this, on all private guns and ammo.Astonishingly, 46 out of our 100 United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional rights to a foreign power.Here are the 46 senators who voted to give your rights to the U.N.

    Baldwin (D-WI)
    Baucus (D-MT)
    Bennett (D-CO)
    Blumenthal (D-CT)

    Or...

    ...we could read it for ourselfs and make up our own mind(s).

    http://www.un.org/disarmament/ATT/

    It's only twelve (12) pages long. IMHO, it's dicey as hell and could, without difficulty, be interpreted in the manner the NRA suggests.

    The Distinguished Gentlemen who voted in favor of ratification need to have their citizenship revoked, be escorted across the border into permanent exile, and suffer full asset forfeiture. To be clear, I was referring to the eastern and western borders.

    It is interesting to note, however, that an international treaty of this magnitude only required 12 pages to author - compared to the 1,000 odd pages (before administrative rules) for the so-called Affordable Health Care Act.

    BTW: As near as I can tell from cursory investigation, UN Resolution 2117 is *not* the ATT. I could find no reference to it in the ATT, it is a Security Council Resolution, it does reference the ATT in section 19, and section 11 reads in full; "11. Calls for Member States to support weapons collection, disarmament, demobilization and reintegration of ex-combatants, as well as physical security and stockpile management programmes by United Nations peacekeeping operations where so mandated".

    The measure voted upon was not the treaty itself, but a non-binding test amendment expressing opposition to the ATT which was tacked onto an unrelated congressional budget resolution.

    Correction, Ron Wyden is New York's third Senator. He lives in New York with his wife and their child and only makes occasional trips to Oregon during election season.

    Oregon deserves two Senators, but we will need to wait two more years for an opportunity to replace him with someone who supports the Second Amendment and who actually lives here.

    State Dept says:

    This will require States Parties to establish export and import control systems closer to the high standard the United States already sets with its own national system. Joining the Arms Trade Treaty would not result in any additional U.S. export or import controls.

    • The text of the Arms Trade Treaty recognizes the legitimate political, security, economic, and commercial purposes of the international trade in conventional arms, as well as the legitimate trade and lawful ownership and use of certain arms for recreational, cultural, historical, and sporting activities.
    • The Treaty also reaffirms the sovereign right of any State to regulate conventional arms within its own territory according to its own legal or constitutional system. Nothing in the Arms Trade Treaty is inconsistent with the rights of U.S. citizens, including those protected by the Second Amendment.

    • The General Assembly of the United Nations adopted the Arms Trade Treaty on April 2, 2013, by an overwhelming margin of 154 to 3, with 23 abstentions. The Treaty was supported by the vast majority of U.S. allies and partners. Only Iran, Syria, and North Korea voted against the Treaty.
    • The Treaty opened for signature on June 3, 2013, and on September 25, the United States became the 91st state to sign the Treaty. To date, 4 states have ratified it. The Arms Trade Treaty will enter into force following ratification by 50 states.

    FWIW.

    It appears that some folks actually think the UN is a good idea. Obama voters?

    Na, end result is probably the same. Some people just call out BS when seen.

    Y'know, any article that takes about 1,000 words to dance around saying "yes" or "no" they voted for or didn't vote for something is straight off the stable floor.
    They either voted for it or they didn't. That is really ALL that counts. None of the lengthy explanations or justifications. Straight Yes or No answer.

    The UN arms trade treaty is a bad idea. Those who voted for it did not vote to protect the interests of American gun owners or gun makers. Period. End of story.
