To the Editor:
Many things run across my desk. Someone sends me things from the internet, of which most of that is nonsense. But, before I use some things, I usually take the effort to check it out. This one really surprised me. This one I looked up in several places and it appears to be true. This is supposedly from someone in Texas and he comments, at least our Texas senators are not on this list. I am sorry to see so many other states have a sorry record of the second amendment support. This is that brief, glorious moment in history when everyone stands around ... reloading. So much for the guy from Texas.
But the facts are:
The U.N. Resolution 2117 lists 21 points dealing with firearms control, but perhaps of most interest is point number 11.
U.N. Resolution 2117, point number 11 “calls for member states to support weapons collection, disarmament.”
In a 53-46 vote, The U.S. Senate voted against the U.N. resolution.
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 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), and Wyden (D-OR).
These senators voted to let the UN take our guns. They need to lose their next election. We have been betrayed.
I didn’t see one Republican name on that list, what does that tell you?
One time, when I was not in the military and didn’t have a firearm, I was shot at trying to be a good samaritan. Later that same day I was asked, “Why didn’t you shoot back?” My reply, “With what, my finger?”
Just what is the current congress doing to the people of the United States? Will you be able to fight back if the time comes?
