    Take note if you own a firearm!!!
    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:
    "CALLS FOR MEMBER STATES TO SUPPORT WEAPONS COLLECTION and DISARMAMENT of all UN countries".
    By a 53-46 vote - The U.S. Senate voted against the U.N. resolution.
    This is that brief, glorious moment in history when 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 "legis..traitors". 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)
    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)
    Folks, this needs to go viral. These Senators voted to let the UN take OUR guns. They need to lose their next election. We have been betrayed.
    46 Senators Voted to Give your 2nd Amendment Constitutional Rights to the U.N.
    Please share...

    Not sure if this is a political thing or NOT?
    Not a single "R" in the bunch?
    Why are the "D's" so adamant to throw the US constitution out the window?

    The Dems are too dumb to realize that they would have a civil war on their hands if they tried to take our guns. Not joking.

    Sad thing is, some of them will be so darned stupid, they'll claim it's just partisan politics that anyone would vote against that treaty.

    Even sadder, some of them know it's treason, but they'll vote the party line anyway, just to keep access to the party money.:mad:

    Two of the a-holes are right here in Colorado. They voted exactly as I thought they would. They rest comfortably under "O"s gonads during every vote. They claim it wouldn't be legally binding. Well, that's not the point now is it? Totally disgusting people.:mad:

    McCaskill started off as a local pol around here..... Was actually a fairly even thinking person then. She became a Senator, and she's been nothing but a far-far left hardliner.... Hillary left even....

    Same with this guy... He's only been in for about 8 years though...

    Seriously, none of the senators on that list should EVER get re-elected, but like Talon said... a good amount of them will...

    By the way, this bit of news is pretty crusty. It's from ~2013

    Here's a news story from the time:
    http://thehill.com/blogs/floor-acti...-votes-to-stop-us-from-joining-un-arms-treaty

    Here's the actual text of the resolution:
    http://www.securitycouncilreport.org/atf/cf/{65BFCF9B-6D27-4E9C-8CD3-CF6E4FF96FF9}/s_res_2117.pdf

    The referenced clause actually states:
    "1. 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 gist of it is targeted at U.N. "Peacekeeping" missions in combat areas and specifically in reference to full blown small arms trade to small armies, petty warlords, or weapons smuggled to revolutionaries overthrowing oppressive dictatorships. As it stands, the U.S. would not be in violation of that clause by "allowing" armed U.S. Civilians in the U.S. but might have been in violation when we left all of our goodies laying around for ISIS to pick up.

    That said, it is potentially possible to flog this clause into a generic disarmament statement because, frankly, politicians with a goal are pretty good at torturing laws and statements into being whatever best serves their desires. However, 1) it's old and several years out of date and 2) it wasn't ratified in any sense of the word and currently exists as nothing but a failed U.S. trial balloon.

    Peace favor your sword,

    I know that they have been kicking this thing around for a couple of years now. They will try again sooner or later.

    He is retiring. You didn't know that? What R is running to replace him?

    Mitch McCumquat shouldn't have allowed this to even come to a vote.

    And just why not? They knew ahead of time that it was going to fail and this gets the libocrats on record, so that they can be flogged with it in every future election.

    We have a D senator, who did NOT Vote for that POS...

    Joe Donnely. AFAIK, he only voted against gun owners
    ONCE, as I recall. Thinking it was the one that passed
    after Newtown. One of MANY.



    What I am hoping Obama does not try is to VETO this
    non-passage of this BS "UN Treaty" and claim
    that since he vetoed it, it becomes LAW.

    What was that other POS BS he did that with?
    Oh, yeah... Iran Nuclear Deal. But Donnely
    supported that one :rolleyes:

    He did answer my email on that, which I respect.
    Thanks Joe...

    Not surprised both of Minnesota's numb nuts voted for it.
