Senate vows to give UN arms control deal the finger

Not the one they have in mind.

No Barnabas, that’s not the one they have in mind.

I could have just as easily entitled this, “Senate pledges to save the lives of thousands of African soldiers,” but I think the real motivation here is that Senate leftists, moderates, and RINOS don’t want foreigners to get credit for undermining our Constitutional rights.

Republican senators — joined by at least one Democrat — ripped the international arms trade treaty approved Tuesday by the U.N. General Assembly, calling it a “non-starter” and vowing to oppose Senate ratification.

The treaty approved Tuesday was the first of its kind. The resolution was approved at the U.N. by a vote of 154 to 3 with 23 abstentions.

But in the U.S. Senate, which must ratify the treaty in order for the United States to be a party to it, opposition is much stronger.

The Senate already voted for an amendment last month to prevent the U.S. from entering into the treaty. The sentiment among conservative and moderate senators concerned the treaty represents an infringement of Second Amendment rights had not changed in light of Tuesday’s U.N. vote.

“The U.N. Arms Trade Treaty that passed in the General Assembly today would require the United States to implement gun-control legislation as required by the treaty, which could supersede the laws our elected officials have already put into place,” Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., said in a statement. “It’s time the Obama administration recognizes it is already a non-starter, and Americans will not stand for internationalists limiting and infringing upon their Constitutional rights.”

Or maybe it is even more simple than that, and they realize that most political bodyguards aren’t on par with the Secret Service.

    Remember Obamacare…. it was passed in the middle of the night on Christmas Eve after many bribes, kickbacks and exhaustion from fighting it for the year.

    Obama will never give up, gun control is a must for the UN Nazis to cram their agenda down our throats and only have a minimum casualities.

    Thye know if there cummunist takeover is not complee by 2016 they will be toast in the next election and all they have desired for 100 years will go up in smoke. Don’t ever expect this to go away as long as these communists in government have their power.

    Look for some trumped up ’emergency’ as they realize they are loosing their dis armament goals. It is coming don’t ever think this is going away should they loose the first, second, third, fouth or more rounds…
