57 Senators Protest U.N. Small Arms Treaty

U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) joined his colleague Senator Jerry Moran (R-KS) and 43 other Senators in expressing grave concern about the dangers posed to Second Amendment rights by the United Nations’ Arms Trade Treaty. In a letter to President Obama and Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, medical the 45 senators said they would oppose ratification of an Arms Trade Treaty that in any way restricts the rights of law-abiding American gun owners. This is enough to block the treaty from Senate passage, stomach as treaties submitted to the U.S. Senate require approval of two-thirds of Senators present to be ratified.

“Our Second Amendment is non-negotiable, viagra dosage ” said Hatch. “We don’t need a bunch of bureaucrats at the United Nations dictating our liberties and freedoms. This Treaty should not be ratified and I will fight it tooth and nail.”-[source]

    So, is it 45 Senators or 57, who are showing support for the 2nd Amendment?


    I am now 74 years old and have lived long enough to know what is good and what is bad. If you are truly an American, and not like the so called president, you MUST NOT ALLOW THIS DECITFUL TREATY BECOME LAW. I have heard that the president is right now utilizing a little known law to make an end run on Congress and make the SMALL ARMS TREATY law with out Congress even getting a chance to vote on it! PLEASE DO NOT FAIL US NOW! If you consider yourself to be an American, PLEASE investigate this rummor and if true fix the problem. I believe the president when he said that he intends for his administration to take all our weapons away from us. What about the 2nd amendment. He said that he would support and defend our constitution. I do not think that he intends to do that. What about impeachment?

    Except that the Arms Trade Treaty has absolutely nothing to do with domestic firearm sales or ownership in the United States. At all. It places restrictions on illicit international firearms trading, which would undoubtedly hurt those US manufacturers who export weapons to countries opposed to NATO and members of the UN.
