    Cool Response from a Senator

    I sent a e-mail off to Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio regarding the UN Arms treaty. Here is his response :

    Thank you for getting in touch with me about the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (ATT).

    Since 2006, members of the United Nations have been negotiating a treaty to combat the illicit international trade of arms. The treaty would establish global standards for the import, export, and transfer of conventional weapons ranging from tanks, fighter jets, small arms, and ammunition to prevent them from fueling conflicts or falling into the hands of terrorists, warlords, and international crime syndicates.

    I have heard from many Ohioans who are concerned that an ATT could infringe upon their Second Amendment rights. The ATT is not intended to devise a global gun ban or deny law-abiding U.S. citizens their right to bear arms. The United States has made it clear throughout negotiations that any potential ATT must respect the sovereign rights of nations to regulate gun sales and ownership within their own borders. The Supreme Court has also ruled that no treaty may supersede the powers set forth by our Constitution or Bill of Rights.

    I fully support the Second Amendment right to bear arms and will continue to protect this fundamental right. Should the ATT come before the Senate for ratification, I will be sure to keep your views in mind, and I will not support any treaty that undermines the Second Amendment.

    Thank you again for contacting me.

    Sincerely,

    Sherrod Brown
    United States Senator

    Odd, I don't feel fully supported by Sherrod on Second Amendment rights:

    I don't live in Ohio, but I could not support him in an election. I hope the good people of Ohio vote accordingly. We don't need anyone with this attitude in a public office.

    Thankfully his competitor has a lot more potential, and a lot more promise. He is a strong 2A supporter, as well as a former Marine/Iraq veteran

    Mandel has no experience to be a senator. He can't even do his treasurer job. But back to Senator Brown, I was surprised by his response since he is a Obama cronie.

    He's a Politician. They will lie to to your face. As one Politician once told me face to face. "It's not against the law to lie, as long is it's not under oath before a Judge or Senate Sub Comittiee."

    They will tell you what you want to hear, and then do what ever they want or do what ever whoever is paying them the most wants.

    Like it or not, that's how the game is played!

    I should hold on to this e-mail and send it to the Cleveland Plain Dealer when he votes differently.

    Maybe she does now after she got 40,000,000 emails / letters and can see saying that is good for a vote.

    Voter coddling. The politician merely claimed he'd not support a treaty that undermined the 2A, not that he "fully supports" the 2A. There can't be too many treaties around that take swipes at the 2A, but that leaves open the entire field for all other legislation that attacks citizens' right to defend themselves against crime.

    You have to understand politician speak. Note that he wrote "....I will not support any treaty that undermines the Second Amendment." He will most probably merely, conveniently discover that the treaty does not "undermine the Second Amendment."
