The 46 senators who voted in favor of the UN gun control treaty

46 Senators is not enough to ratify the treaty which will then have no more relevance than the Kyoto Treaty…signed by Clinton and rejected by the Senate.

The 46 senators who voted in favor of the UN gun control treaty

On April 2, 2013, after years of preparation, the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) was approved by a vote of 154 to 3.

In the name of regulating the international trade in conventional weapons, which include hand guns, the ATT is really a gun-control treaty because:

·         The treaty requires the governments of countries that are signatories to create "a national control system regulating the transfer of conventional arms." (Article 5, sec. 5, ATT)

·         Those governments are to keep a record of all gun owners (called "end users"), i.e., a gun registry. (Article 12, sec. 3, ATT)

·         The "national control" list would be made available to the United Nations and the governments of other signatory countries. (Article 5, sec. 4, ATT)

Verify the above for yourself by reading the UN Arms Trade Treaty in pdf format, here.

Two days ago, on June 3, 2013, U.N. member nations began ratifying the ATT. Obama the POS is expected to sign it, despite bipartisan opposition in Congress. This was confirmed by his secretary of state John Kerry.

Obama can sign whatever he wants, but the U.S. Constitution gives the authority over foreign treaties to the United States Senate. This means the ATT is not enforceable unless and until the Senate ratifies it with a two-thirds majority vote.

If what the Senate did on March 23, 2013, is an indication, it is not at all certain that the Senate will reject the ATT.

In the pre-dawn hours that morning, the Senate narrowly approved a measure to oppose the ATT. By a narrow vote of 53-46, the Senate passed an amendment to the budget bill “to uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.”

Imagine that: Ten weeks ago, America was four votes away from the  Senate giving our Second Amendment Constitutional rights over to the United Nations!

Here are the 46 U.S. senators (44 Democrats, 2 Independents) who had voted to surrender our Constitutional rights to the UN. Note that there is not a single Republican among the 46 traitors, so don't tell me  there's not a wit of difference between the two parties!

Incredibly, according to the Huffington Post, the National Association of Evangelicals, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, National Council of Churches and "numerous retired generals and admirals" are outspoken advocates for the UN Arms Trade Treaty. Christian Post reports that a left-wing "faith" group called the American Values Network -- which calls itself "an organization seeking to encourage community and family values" -- even launched a video aimed at the seven U.S. senators who currently oppose the ATT.

So be sure to contact your senators and tell them to vote NO when the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty comes before the Senate for ratification.

H/t FOTM's igor.
