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.

    I spent over 20 years in the Marine Corps, firmly believed at that time I was doing
    my part for my courtry (not like a bunch of draft dodgers – when I enlisted), took
    great pride in wearing that uniform and am still a Marine at heart. My tenure in
    the Corps was definitely before OBAMA and there were way to many “elected politicians”
    that had their own personal agenda once they got into office. It was constantly
    stated that we were fighting for our freedom in Iraq & Afganistan, but after the take
    down of Bin Laden himself(which I supported) the rest of our involvement was so poorly
    handled that I don’t really know the words to describe it. You don’t take a knife to
    a gunfight – either do it or get off the pot. The number of men and women that have
    lost their lives and have been maimed for life surely could not have been fully aware
    of while they were putting their lives on the line there were politicians back home
    that were in their soft seated positions screwing them all the while. Just how many
    of the military personnel ever imagined that even though they carried weapons of all
    sorts to use overseas would have their rights to own a weapon in their own country
    put in jeopardy? For the past and present military, definitely including myself, can,
    or should, only have a very bad taste knowing that the Constitutional Rights they swore to protect – AS DID THE ELECTED POLITICIANS TO INCLUDE THE PRESIDENT, are only
    words on an old piece of paper without any real standing or significance, or so it would seem. My opinion, the nation (OUR NATIOM) has been flushed so many times by the
    people on the HILL that are suppose to look out for us that the septic is overflowing.

    i just wonder if people understand that approval of such a treaty has just as much power under the law as the second amendment. we cannot allow this to pass. at one time i would vote for what i thought was the right person for the job, but no longer. i will never vote for a democrate again, because they cannot be trusted. i will not vote for any republican that show support of any bill that violates, even the spirit, of the constitution. i want my freedom and i want all to have freedom.

    This is a list of 46 traitors. They took an oath, since most have been elected to office more than once, they’ve taken the oath several times to uphold the Constitution of the United States. They have voted to destroy the Constitution. Enforce the existing laws of our country, do not sell out our country to the United Nations. This is beyond the scope of the United Nations. These people want to disarm the US citizenry. then they want to tax the hell out of us, they want our money!!

    I don’t think anyone will come take our guns. ..At least not anytime soon. They’ll slowly erode our rights then simply start imposing massive fines for not willingly turning in the guns that you have registered.

    These days I can’t make out the democratic party. On one hand they want to disarm America in the name of saving lives and on the other they want to allow babies to be killed by calling it pro-choice. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/04/12/why-the-mainstream-media-is-not-covering-the-gosnell-abortion-trial.html

    What happened? Today’s U.S. Government does not work as advertised in my Political Science class. I beleive the erosion of balance will eventually translate to collapse of the country. I hope I am wrong. Remember 1776?

    1. Every federal and State Legislative, Executive, and Judicial Officer is REQUIRED to take an oath to ‘preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution’ as a PRECONDITION to being DELEGATED ANY government authority. Any public act to suborn the Constitution (by attempting to disregard limitations to government authority defined therein) necessarily repudiates the required oath. By repudiating their oath they necessarily repudiate their government authority. Without any authority they MUST BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE IMMEDIATELY.

    2. Article VI of the Constitution requires that ALL Laws and TREATIES of the US must comply with the Constitution. That means that the Senate HAS NO AUTHORITY to ratify the UN Treaty. Furthermore ANY sworn Officer that affirms an effort to suborn the Constitution MUST be removed from office.

    Either our Constitutional Republic under the rule of Law; or under tyranny. Operating in violation of the Constitution is in fact tyranny. Sovereign Citizens must force government to honor the Constitution.

    Every Senator on this list has taken a solemn vow and oath to defend and UPHOLD the Constitution of their State and this Country. THose people were sent to represent us as a whole and not the small piece they are bowing to now in preparations to thwart the will of the majority they represent AND the Constitutions they swore to respect! Unless they all wish to give up politics and want to become “working class stiffs” real soon then they should think long and hard before attempting to ignore their oaths in order to circumvent the Constitution of the United States. None of it will hold up in court (except perhaps the 9th district) and they are all showing their soft underbellies just shy of the 2014 elections. It’s just so fantastic and unbelievable that I hardly know how to contain my anger at these TRAITORS! Impeach Obama for bowing to the UN in spite of our Government voting NOT to go along with their plans or disarming America and let’s send a clear message to all his “Patsies” that this is America, Love it or Leave it!
