Udall, Bennett voted to give away Second Amendment rights

I would like to follow up on Frank Roger Littles letter published in the letters to the editor in the edition of Dec 26. His letter was right on the mark as far as there are those in this government who never miss an opportunity to cede away some of our freedoms and vital laws, and therefore give control of these laws to others, notably the United Nations.

Little notes that three times in recent months, treaties have been proposed in the U.S. Senate for ratification and in each case the proposals were narrowly defeated. However, Sens. Mark Udall and Michael Bennett voted to give authority and control of some of our laws to outside entities.

Specifically, Senate Bill 139 was passed 53-46. Forty-six senators voted against this: To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nation Arms Trade Treaty. Thats right. Forty-six senators voted to hand over our constitutional rights to the U.N. Among those 46 were both senators from Colorado: Sens. Udall and Bennett.

Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., offered Amendment 139, which was passed on the 53-46 vote. His amendment contained language to affirm that foreign treaties would not trump the U.S. Constitution.

Sen. Inhofe said from the Senate floor, I want to very briefly read this so nobody over there or over here misunderstands what this amendment does. This is right out of the Amendment. To uphold the Second Amendment rights is one thing. And secondly, prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations arms trade treaties.

If you dont want your representatives in the Senate voting against your Second Amendment rights, we can start to right this boat by voting out Sen. Udall in November.

Gun Control and the Second Amendment – Video

A clear majority of senators now oppose the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.

Because two-thirds of senators would be required to consent to ratification, the fate of the treaty was always in doubt. Now its unclear whether the Senate could even proceed to debate the measure.

Theres no way to filibuster a motion to take up a treaty, but a roll call vote may be required to go into executive session to consider it. That would require a simple majority, and it isnt at all clear the treaty which would establish new international standards related to trade in conventional weapons would get over that threshold.

In a Monday letter to President Barack Obama, Democratic Sens. John Tester and Max Baucus of Montana joined Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Donnelly of Indiana in announcing opposition to the treaty that Secretary of State John Kerry signed on to on behalf of the Obama administration last month.

The four Democrats say that including small firearms and ammunition in the terms of the agreement makes the Treaty overly broad.

We take our constitutional obligation as U.S. Senators to provide advice and consent seriously. And although we appreciate the Administrations work to make this Treaty more amenable to the United States interests, we believe it falls short, the senators wrote. Because of unaddressed concerns that this Treatys obligations could undermine our nations sovereignty and the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans, we would oppose the Treaty if it were to come before the U.S. Senate.

The National Rifle Association, which has long opposed the treaty, praised the senators letter.

This letter sends a clear message to President Obama and Secretary Kerry that the Arms Trade Treaty will not receive the 67 votes in the U.S. Senate necessary for ratification, NRA Executive Director Chris W. Cox said in a Tuesday statement.

Jun 142012

The U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) will be negotiated in New York in July. In October 2009, the Obama Administration reversed the previous Administrations position and decided to support the negotiation of the Treaty. One reason to be concerned about the Treaty is its potential effect on rights protected in the U.S. under the Second Amendment. Senator Jerry Moran has led the way in expressing these concerns. Last summer, he led 44 of his colleagues in notifying President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton of their intent to oppose the ratification of any ATT that in any way restricts Americans Second Amendment rights. In March, he introduced the Second Amendment Sovereignty Act of 2012, which would bar funding for any ATT that would restrict Second Amendment rights, and, in late May, working with Senator Jon Tester (D-MT), he offered a similar amendment which passed by a voice vote to the FY 2013 State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs Appropriations Bill.

Join us as Senator Moran discusses his concerns with the ATT, reviews the Senates determination to protect Second Amendment freedoms and U.S. sovereignty, and offers a look ahead at one of the most important and contentious international negotiations of 2012.
