    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.

    Not surprised by Murray and Cantwell at all. Just wish we could kick them out of the country for voting against the Constitution.
