The U.S. Senate voted 53-46 to reject a United Nations resolution that “called for member states to support weapons collection and disarmament of all U.N. countries.” The vote precludes the United States from becoming a part of Turtle Bay's Arms Trade Treaty. Indeed it is comforting to know that a majority of the Senate considers sacred our national sovereignty and the Second Amendment; it is just as frightening to think that 46 senators — 44 Democrats and two independents — do not. [Bolding in original]Ah, the UN Arms Trade Treaty.
The one John Kerry signed in late September, 2013.
The one that says in its Preamble:
Reaffirming the sovereign right of any State to regulate and control conventional arms exclusively within its territory, pursuant to its own legal or constitutional system [Italics in original.]The one where the Senate voted against it with a vote of 53-46 on March 23, 2013.
That was 971 days ago.
How much more embarrassing can this get for you, my friends?
