Senate Moves To Block U.N. Arms Treaty

The Senate voted on and passed an amendment to a budget bill to keep the U.S. out of a U.N. arms trade treaty. Lots of people dismiss the U.N. arms treaty as just another conspiracy theory but in retrospect the wording of the treaty does not differentiate between military and civilian firearms.

Another amendment that didn’t get as much attention was from Senator Patrick Leahy which proposed “that clarified that under current U.S. law, treaties don’t trump the Constitution and that the United States should not agree to any arms treaty that violates the Second Amendment rights.”

I as usual was curious about how my Senators voted and was surprised to see that Sherrod Brown voted NAY. After all the emails telling me was a strong supporter of the second amendment I am starting to think it is going to be my mission to make sure this man is out of office the next time around. All of my Ohio readers can join me in asking Mr Brown WTF?!?! with letters and emails until he comes out and states why he felt compelled to vote against an amendment that was worded,

To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty

Seems pretty straight forward for someone who is a “strong second Amendment supporter” right?

For all my other readers who want to know how their Senator voted here is the link to the vote summary from the U.S. Senate. How did your representatives vote? Do you need to contact them also? Let me know in the comment area.
