In case ya’ll missed it this week.
Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, who had beseeched the members to reach an agreement, said in a statement, “The conference’s inability to conclude its work on this much-awaited A.T.T., despite years of effort of member states and civil society from many countries, is a setback.” He was referring to the official name of the pact, the Arms Trade Treaty. Diplomats said the next step was likely to be further negotiations and a vote at the next session of the United Nations General Assembly in a couple of months.
Treaty supporters, led by activist groups such as Amnesty International and Oxfam America, expressed anger at the failure after early bouts of optimism that a draft of the treaty circulated this week would satisfy American concerns, notably its possible infringement on the Second Amendment right to bear arms — an especially delicate issue during a presidential election year in the United States.
The supporters contended the treaty’s language specified that it would have no impact on such rights. But gun rights groups like the National Rifle Association said the treaty remained “seriously flawed.”
Above is the list that voted for ceding what should be a states decision not just to the Imperialistic Federal Government but to an aspiring international one. Now do I know the language of said treaty would have infringed on my personal rights? No because no draft was ever submitted. However it is my fervent belief the UN acts expressly counter to any US Interest. That in fact the entire organization is used to defeat the founding principals of this country.
Yeah for now they do not even have a proposal for us to not ratify, but the vote this week prevents it from becoming an issue despite both the Obamanation and Kerry’s pledge of US support.
All of these senators should be considered traitors for conspiring against the constitution, and should be charged with treason for serving foreign governments.
