Wake up America! Who is in the Second Amendment’s Corner?

By Dave Dolbee published on in General, News

Hint – Hint — It’s not the Democrats!

How safe do you believe your gun rights to be? The Senate and House are both debating gun legislation this week and several of the more radical states are considering or have recently passed anti-Second Amendment legislation. There is a lot of rhetoric being bandied about political circles as well as social media, which make it hard for some to sort the wheat from the chaff. And while we are still reeling from the onslaught of political ads and campaigns of the 2012 election, the 2014 midterm elections are just around the corner.

Just as important as the domestic votes are the votes by officials you and I don’t get to elect. The United Nations recently voted to adopt a new global arms treaty. The pact passed with 154-3 and 23 abstentions. The United States was NOT one of the three. Our Executive branch willfully decided to oppose the Legislative Branches’ will by voting in favor of the pact.

United Nations Vote

Even though the U.S. Senate had already voted 53-46 NOT to support the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, the Executive Branch moved forward by voting in favor of it at the United Nations and President Obama has vowed to sign it in the future.

Our last line of defense was in the Senate where a ratification vote would be necessary. Fortunately, it was defeated in the Senate. To have passed the Senate it would have required a two-thirds vote (67 Senators) and did not come close, but the vote was still very telling.

The vote in the Senate actually happened before the vote. That means, knowing the Senate did not—and would not—approve the treaty, the Obama administration defied the will of the legislature—and the people—to vote in favor of the pact at the U.N. Knowing this, President Obama has also vowed to sign the treaty in the next few months. Given the administration’s history of subverting the Constitution at every turn, I am very concerned about the future of the Second Amendment and the under-handed tactics they administration may use.

Interestingly, the treaty is also subjective in its enforcement. i.e. each country can ratify the treaty and then decide if, or how, to enforce the treaty with regard to its own country. Therefore, Obama could continue to ship small arms, tanks etc. to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, while taking pistols and shotguns from the hands of citizens in the United States. This is the policy that nearly half of our current Senators support!

How the Vote Played Out

BIll_of_Rights

The proof is in the Congressional records. Which political party was able to muster 46 votes in favor of the United Nations over the Second Amendment?

Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) introduced an amendment that would prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty in order to uphold the Second Amendment. His amendment passed on a 53-46 vote. 53-46… that means 46 Senators—almost half—preferred the United Nations pact to the principles set forth in the Bill of Rights. It should be mind boggling that there is 46 Senators willing to vote in favor of letting United Nations policy supersede our Second Amendment rights. If these 46 Senators would let the U.N. come in and dictate our rights, how do you think they would vote on a domestic law to strip us of our rights? A vote where they did not need two-thirds but rather a simple majority?

Meet Your Senators

As much as I hate to start the political cycle already, it is upon us. Politicians believe they can get away with votes such as this without penalty, but we need to show them the reality of their actions and their attempt to subvert the Bill of Rights.

    Very dangerous talk. What if every gun owner refuses , including Police and Military . Sounds very much like Civil War.

    Does anyone remember George Carlin and his witticism, there is no accounting for the stupidity of large numbers of ignorant people. Paraphrased of course but still appropriate. The citizens of those states from which these anarchists are elected think they are right. Maybe old age will overtake a few, but be assured they will be replaced by equally as wrong headed youngsters. We just have to do the best we can in showing each lie and false hood up with the truth.

    I totally agree with Mr. Perras in comment #177, we are being sold out by the Democract Party in Power of which I firmly believe is the new Communist Party. We must all get out and VOTE these dirtbags out of Office before our Country is beyond reclaiming. Lets remove all those in both parties and put politians in that remember they work for us. God Bless America!!

    We are fortunate in that Mr. Rockefeller will not be around much longer. We’ll make sure we nix Manchin next term and get someone in Rockefeller’s slot to protect our base freedoms.

    I will REMEMBER this when ELECTIONS roll around again. I live in the USA not in the UN building! I will NOT have my SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS given away to the UN by anyone. I swore an oath when I was in the service to defend the constitution from ALL enemies FOREIGN and “DOMESTIC”! I never thought those enemies would include the Congress! I have never been so disgusted by the shenanigans that are going on recently in Washington. Simply disgraceful! What part of NO! NO! NO! a THOUSAND TIMES NO! don’t these people UNDERSTAND? THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO UPHOLD THE WHOLE CONSTITUTION! Not just the parts they personally like, the whole thing!

    Disarming American citizens is a great fool proof plan in light of our country being the target of internal attacks once again in Boston. How idiotic is that plan? What’s next? After trying to take the guns and ammunition from law abiding citizens and making us vulnerable, big brother can protect us all? Yes, that is another great plan, isn’t it? Ya Right, as if that could happen. I know, the lawmaker’s need to focus on making pressure cookers illegal. The use of this ordinary household convenience packed with debilitating fragments, nails, screws, ball bearings and other varying items meant to kill and seriously injure our fellow citizens is far less dangerous than a single AR-15 with an extended magazine. Again, how idiotic is this train of thought? Many of our politicians have lost touch with the citizen’s. Their life of privilege and overlapping security paid for by our tax dollars is great for them. What about the rest of us? Cowardice in the face of the enemy is a charge applied to military personnel. It should be equally applied to our Commander-In-Chief and politicians who fail to keep us safe from any threat, internal or external and place other countries or the United Nations agenda above our own Nation. Removing the right of a citizen to defend themselves is not only ignorant, it is cowardice. One reason America was not invaded by the Japanese in WWII? Behind every bush was an armed American citizen with plenty of ammunition. The same principle still applies today. Except then, America had a leader with back bone. A man who put the country first rather than playing golf, flying around the globe, being on the “boob tube” nearly every time you turn it on or vacationing on the public dime at extravagant locations. Keep your eye on the ball…support the NRA, vote out of office those opposed to supporting your rights as guaranteed under the Constitution and remember, this great experiment called America is only as great as WE THE PEOPLE allow her to be. God bless America and all those who are willing to work and fight to keep her Constitution intact!

    Though the most recent events in Boston were indeed tragic, it seems to be impeccably timed. There is a big push by gun enthusiasts and patriots about the votes of the senate, and a big event happens that takes up the lime light. There are too many times where this type of thing have happened. Huge events happen when there are controvercial issues going on in the government. I am just tired of seeing it over and over. I may be wrong and seeing things in a skewed point of view, but to me it seems a little fishy.

    Voting folks out of office may not be the answer, after all the Senate was still able to vote the UN prosposal down. It was the executive branch that took the law into it own hands and overruled the will of the people.

    I think its all turned into a big joke, nearly everyone that goes to washington to be a political law and bill maker has never really had to work for a living, all they know is greed and good times its all just for show to creat a voter base for their career in the big game. Its going to run its course just like it did when the british were incharge. We need a true 4 year one time draft for the politions in the future, thats right every one who is “mentally capable” and “works” will go and get $25,000 more a year than they make at what ever job they work at. Man we can save billions. Oh and outlaw the lobbyist & electoral college forever.
