Red signifies Republican votes against the UN Small Arms Treaty and 7 Democrat s ( no doubt wanting to save their skins for the mid-term 2014 election). Not one Republican voted for this treaty. This time the Republicans made an every member stand. Hope springs eternal.
NAYs 46 – All Democrats listed in Blue or the Alinsky Party as I call them.
Not Voting – 1 Lautenberg (D-NJ)
Any liberals out there who are against being disarmed, take good notice if your Senator voted for this atrocity by the UN. The UN has no right to override our Constitution. The UN has no business what our country does internally. We are a sovereign nation and outside countries, and mostly useless UN members, of which many of the members are from dictator or rogue countries should NOT, I repeat NOT have anything to say about the laws of our Constitution and the Bill of Rights which contains the 2nd Amendment.
This type of treaty is extremely dangerous to the freedoms and liberty of our country. Many of the nations in the UN include ones such as Iran, China, Russia, Saudi Arabia.
We do not need to have these kinds of nations feel emboldened by the disarming of the citizens of the United States. Think about what danger we are in if the entire citizenry of this country is disarmed. The criminals would run amok because you know they do not hand their weapons over. None of us would be safe. Other countries would not think twice about invading us because so far we are all mostly armed.
However the King said he may use an Executive Order to make this treaty valid in our country. That will be a treasonous act at which time he should be impeached or arrested for treason.
Hat tip to Bill W for the information.
