“Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.” — Edmund Burke

There is nothing like a good-ole knife in the back by our own elected representatives. They swore to uphold and defend the Constitution, but instead they are stabbing us in the back!

Over the weekend, we came four votes away from the United States Senate giving our Bill of Rights, Second Amendment rights over to the United Nations. In a 53-46 vote, the Senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Small Arms Trade Treaty.

The Statement of Purpose from the bill read:

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

The U.N. Small Arms Treaty has been championed by the Obama Administration and would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms. The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S. and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry on all private guns and ammo.

Astonishingly, 46 of our United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional rights to a foreign power.
