    I don't think anyone in Maryland would be surprised to know that both of our liberal senators Cardin and Mikulski voted for this assault on the constitution. I am convinced they both would go along with anything Obama or Harry Reid would want them to do. Send this to everyone on your address list and expose these traitors.
    Over the weekend, we came four votes away from the United States Senate giving our Constitutional 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 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, which has been

    championed by the Obama Administration
    , 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.
    Here are the 46 senators that voted to give your rights to the U.N.
    Baldwin (D-WI)

    Baucus (D-MT)

    Bennet (D-CO)

    Blumenthal (D-CT)

    Boxer (D-CA)

    Brown (D-OH)

    Cantwell (D-WA)

    Cardin (D-MD)

    Carper (D-DE)

    Casey (D-PA)

    Coons (D-DE)

    Cowan (D-MA)

    Durbin (D-IL)

    Feinstein (D-CA)

    Franken (D-MN)

    Gillibrand (D-NY)

    Harkin (D-IA)

    Hirono (D-HI)

    Johnson (D-SD)

    Kaine (D-VA)

    King (I-ME)

    Klobuchar (D-MN)

    Landrieu (D-LA)

    Leahy (D-VT)

    Levin (D-MI)

    McCaskill (D-MO)

    Menendez (D-NJ)

    Merkley (D-OR)

    Mikulski (D-MD)

    Murphy (D-CT)

    Murray (D-WA)

    Nelson (D-FL)
    People this needs to go viral. These Senators voted to let the UN take our guns. They need to lose the election. We have been betrayed.
    46 Senators Voted to Give your 2nd Amendment Constitutional Rights to the U.N.

    This was an email forwarded to me. Figured I'd pass it on to my fellow citizens.

    I'm pretty sure it was voted back in March,the 24th? It was voted predawn on. Saturday probably to keep it off the radar screen and to protect Senators like Baucus and other red state dems. At least some of them voted down the registration Gun bill that was killed today. Two for two so far.

    No disrespect intended for the injured people of this last terrible terrorist attack under Barrack Hussein's watch, but, are the Dems going to ban pressure cookers now? Or just the ones with more than a 10 qt capacity? :rolleyes:

    Did you hear Obama's presser this afternoon after loosing the gun registration vote?The pitiful crybaby got a taste of his own medicine, exhibited in spades when he railroaded the Healthcare Bill through Congress! He has some nerve slamming the NRA for doing their job well.

    I read on the Internet... (So take that for what it's worth absolutely nothing) that the Boston Bombing scapegoat/suspect's home will be raided in a few days on Fri and they will find NRA material and that he used reloading powder. Then they will strongly pursue greatly increased taxes on ammo and severe limits on ammo quantity purchases and block further sale of reloading components.

    I don't generally believe in conspiracy theories however I really hope the jerk(s) who did this didn't use smokeless powder.

    I hope this doesn't happen nor get out to the press or powder and ammo sales will once again be even harder to find. Just when things seemed to start becoming available this would happen/may happen.

    The amount of smokless to do this would be very large. I am betting on C4

    Praying that you are right Jeff. Would be a massive setback to powder and component availability if it is determined or even hinted at smokeless. Just when things seem to be getting a little bit better...

    I agree, if they think they could get away with it they sure would lie too. The last tragedy the "assault rifle" was in the trunk. But they are still saying it was used and that goes for BHO as well.
