    I'm sure that impressed them.

    I hope so! Are you in favor of this statement? I thought it was a good point to make.

    FYI...

    The Obama administration has said it won’t support limits on the Second Amendment.

    From Politifact...

    "We found no evidence of Obama or Clinton indicating they want the UN conference on an arms trade treaty to ban the use of firearms; the recent speech by an administration underling states the government will not back a treaty that infringes on the Second Amendment. This claim runs so substantially counter to reality, it’s ridiculous. Pants on Fire!"

    Having said that, yes, they know my position on such matters.
    I've contacted both of our Senators even though, as you stated, I hope that they are both replaced before this comes up for a vote. At the very least, I wanted them to know that another voice is speaking out against even symbolic gestures against our right to bear arms.

    This is a non-issue, and being from Alabama why should I write my senators telling them to vote the way they will vote anyway?

    I must admit with all the opinions and outrage in similar threads about the UN Small Arms Treaty; I thought there would be more voter turn out for this poll.

    I'm shocked that so many people have faith that a treaty like this won't infringe on their 2A rights. Do you think states like California, Illinois, New York, or New Jersey are infringing on peoples 2A rights? According to those states, they do not. Would you like to nationalize the 2A rights that people luxuriously hold in the state of Illinois?

    Personally, I would rather nip things like this in the bud - so that they don't have any chance of regulating laws/rights that shouldn't be meddled with by foreign entities. The shear fact that our country is considering supporting a UN sanctioned global regulation on small arms that would be applied to US citizens is quite disturbing to me. Our states have enough red tape around our 2A rights as it is - and I firmly believe states should be the only entities that have authority to do so in the manner that they see fit (while keeping regulations constitutional). What is or isn't constitutional is an entirely different debate.

    Yes, I am writing my senators.

    This treaty is the first step to mandatory registration and eventually seize if all private firearms.
    It may not happen for awhile, but for those that think it is a non-issue....

    How will you think of this when your children or grandchildren don't have the same rights that you enjoy today? Will you still think of it as a "non issue" then?

    This short-sighted crap of "it's no big deal" is exactly how we continue to lose our rights.

    I agree. I read the UN's website about what they intend and do not intend to do with the treaty. I do not see how it could be anything but a requirement to register all small arms. Otherwise the is no point to the treay.
    And if that is not reason enough, Iran is on the treaty committee!

    Ok first I would not trust that "underling" to have much say in the adminstration.

    Second, it would depend our your definition of "infringe." This President's administration does not have the same definition of infringe 2nd amendment rights as I.

    Can't change my vote, but I have now contacted them using this method (and it worked well, seemed to find all my Senators and emailed them accordingly):
