Senator Roy Blunt on Small Arms Treaty
I just got a response to a letter I sent my Senators on the U.N. Small Arms Treaty that Hillary Clinton is pushing for. I haven't heard from Senator Claire McCaskill, but really didn't expect one from her. She is a "lap dog" to this administration. I would like to share the letter with all of you.
Reply from Senator Roy Blunt
Dear Nancy ,
Thank you for your letter on the United Nations discussion of a Small Arms Treaty.
As you know, some at the U.N. have long favored ways to limit individual arms ownership. The Arms Trade Treaty seeks to control the international trade of conventional weapons. On October 14, 2009, President Obama overturned the Bush Administration's previous decision to oppose such a treaty in favor of national controls.
I am a strong defender of our Second Amendment rights. The right of law-abiding citizens to own firearms is an individual right guaranteed by our Constitution and upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. The most basic right of Americans is the ability to defend themselves and their families, and I've consistently voted in favor of preserving our constitutionally protected right to own firearms as law-abiding citizens. This is why I have signed onto a letter with Senator Moran to President Obama opposing ratification of this treaty.
U.N. Treaties and resolutions shouldn't be signed just to make U.N. bureaucrats feel useful. The U.S. Senate has a constitutional responsibility to consider treaties and resolutions on the basis of their value to our country, not those of other countries or global organizations. Should legislation addressing a "Small Arms Treaty" be submitted to the Senate, I will strongly oppose it.
Again, thank you for contacting me. I look forward to continuing our conversation on Facebook ( Senator Roy Blunt | Facebook ) and Twitter ( Senator Roy Blunt (@RoyBlunt) on Twitter ) about the important issues f acing Missouri and the country. I also encourage you to visit my website ( blunt.senate.gov ) to learn more about where I stand on the issues and sign-up for my e-newsletter .

I really think it pays to keep in touch with your politicians to see where they stand (or fall) on your concerns for this Country.

A armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one has to back it up with his life.

Good deal. Thanks for sharing that. We should all be contacting our Senators and letting them know how we feel, and to back us up.

Moran is our Senator, so we know where he stands... which is good. Our other is Roberts, and he has the same position.
