    tester-Moran Amendment to Block Use of Taxpayer Money to Lobby for UN Gun Ban Passes

    .......every gun owner concerned about the future of our Right to Keep and Bear Arms should be aware that the United Nations and the global gun eradication movement are attempting to eliminate our Second Amendment freedoms by drafting a U.N. Arms Trade Treaty. This treaty would cover tanks, helicopters, and other heavy weapons but could also include civilian rifles, shotguns and handguns. The treaty's language will be finalized by the U.N. this July during a four week conference. (most of you are somewhat aware of this already)

    In an attempt to thwart this serious threat to our sovereign rights and freedoms, earlier this year, Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kans.) introduced S. 2205--the "Second Amendment Sovereignty Act." S. 2205 would prohibit the Administration from using "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." This week, during consideration of the Fiscal Year 2013 State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs Appropriations Bill, Senator Moran took additional steps to safeguard our rights and joined Sen. Jon tester (D-Mont.) in offering an amendment to protect the rights of American gun owners from being undermined by the proposed ATT. We're pleased to announce that the amendment passed by a voice vote.

    My Comments: Please send these two Bi-Partisan Senators an email or FAX Thanking them for being on YOUR side, on this issue After all, hearing the news of mass murder in Syria today, would you want the UN telling you to turn in your firearms?

    - E-mail Jerry - United States Senator Jerry Moran

    - U.S. Senator Jon tester | E-mail Senator tester

    The House of Reps is easy these days for our 2A rights. Thank these two Senators (of both parties!) for pushing the Senate on 2A rights.

    an important one to keep an eye on...... we thanked Moran (our Rep) for doing what he's been doing.

    A lot of people don't realize that if a treaty is approved by 2/3'rds of the Senate, it over-rides any other constitional rights, etc..... such as the 2nd Amendment. A lot of people don't pay that much attention to the section of the Constitution about treaties.

    That's not true. SCOTUS has held that the Constitution overrides any treaties.

    The US is still a part of the UN and if ratified would be bound by the treaty, at least until/if the SCOTUS ruled it violates the Constitution.

    The most probable impact to us would be the restrictions placed on the international trade of small arms. It might be good for US companies that don't export much, but it has the potential to cripple the firearms industry, and cause prices to skyrocket and supply to dry up like the Sahara.

    So all that has to happen is that they finish the treaty, we have to sign it, we have to get sixty seven senators to approve it.

    Oh yeah let's not forget two other permanent members of the security council that make billions per year on small arms and ammunition exports and have tens of thousands of their citizens employed in the industry.
    With the world economy in the shape it is in I bet folks are just lining up to shut all these factories down.

    Can you please cite the specific section and at least one SCOTUS opinion to support your assertion?
    In previous threads on this same treaty we have had multiple SCOTUS opinions cited that say any treaty or part of a treaty that violates the Constitution of the United States are void.
