Kill the United Nations Gun Grab Treaty – Senators are listening and co-sponsorship for S. 2205 is growing!
The UN liberals are relentless…we must be as well. In a recent turn of events, the Canadian federal government removed language from their position paper that had included an exclusion of so-called “civilian” firearms. Canada now says it supports the inclusion of ALL small arms, light weapons and ammunition within the UN Arms Trade Treaty, “in keeping with the principle of national discretion.”
Don’t let Canada’s slide on gun control influence our Nation. We need to keep fighting against the UN Arms Trade Treaty and must support S. 2205 – the bill in the U.S. Senate. S. 2205 would thwart the hated U.N. Treaty on Small Arms for the United States even if the UN treaty were ratified. (if you are keeping track, the equivalent House bill to S. 2205 is H.R. 4864.)
As the Supreme Court recently reaffirmed, the Second Amendment protects one of the American people’s most basic and fundamental individual rights: “the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.” S. 2205 has 16 senator sponsors while the House bill, H.R. 4846 has 5 sponsors as of this writing. We need to push congress to cosponsor these bills in order to get a vote, the more cosponsors, the more likely the bills are to get an up-or-down vote on the Senate floor.
16 Senators out of 100 is not enough to ensure that S. 2205 receives the votes it needs to protect our Second Amendment Rights!
Further, PRESSURE ON THE ENTIRE CONGRESS is required. Any Senate bill has to be passed by the House of Representatives as well, and the Leadership in both chambers talk frequently about what their constituents are demanding must come to a vote.
To remind you of the SPECIFIC dangers of the United Nations Treaty, it would include, at the very least:
- Establishment of a new UN agency, the Implementation Support Unit, with power to regulate anything having to do with guns that might be sold internationally;
- A requirement that every country submit its gun control plan to the UN;
- A requirement for every country to implement internal tracking of all gun sales within its borders (outright registration!); and,
- A ridiculously expensive requirement for every single of round of ammunition to be stamped with a unique serial number.
And in response to these extremely real, anti-gun provisions (and any others that might be drafted later), Sen. Moran’s S. 2205 would mandate that:
“No funds may be obligated or expended to use the voice, vote, and influence of the United States, in connection with negotiations for a United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, to restrict in any way the rights of United States citizens under the second amendment to the Constitution of the United States, or to otherwise regulate domestic manufacture, assembly, possession, use, transfer, or purchase of firearms, ammunition, or related items, including small arms, light weapons, or related materials.”
INSIST THAT BOTH THE SENATE AND THE HOUSE PASS S. 2205 AND H.R. 4846 NOW!
Congress HAS to support S. 2205 in order to stop Barrack Hussein Obama, Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and the gun-grabbers at the UN!

P.S.: The Senate listens because they have to. But this requires Americans to keep the pressure on, Please, help all of US!
