The Senate secured the 50 signatures needed to prevent the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) -- a document signed by State Secretary John Kerry that threatens Second Amendment rights of American citizens -- from taking effect. "The letter, with its 50 signatories, ends any prospect in the foreseeable future of Senate ratification of the ATT," The Heritage Foundation notes. Senator Mark Kirk (R-IL) was the lone Republican who rejected the pledge -- hardly surprising considering the state he resides in. We applaud the Senate for disavowing this legislation. Right Hook [Good, this was a foolish action by Kerry and thank goodness the Senate put a stop to it.]

  • the entire DEMOCRAT PARTY ARE (TRAITORS)!!

    I SOOO REMEMBER KERRY AND HANOI JANE IN THE '70'S TRASHING MY BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY.

    AND TO SEE KERRY IN THIS POSITION TODAY, MAKES ME VERY NERVOUS.

    obama  ORDERED KERRY TO DO THIS.

    AS obama ordered hillary to do the same.

    the dems gets another one today with booker out of N.J. 

  • The Senate is a joke.  They let Obama know, without a vote, that they don't have enough votes as yet in the Senate to ratify this abomination, leaving it to be brought up at another time when there are enough Democrats in session to pass it.

    They make out like they are heroes in this instance while betraying us on the Obamacare/budget debacle.  

  • That takes the phony anti-American UN out of the immediate anti-gun drooling, now we just have to realize Obama, Hillary, Kerry, and most Democrats will be plotting overtime to take our guns away via every back-door method their sick minds can come up with...what Obama has planned for this nation requires no resistance, and specifically, no armed citizenry.

  • We Still have a huge battle --Defund and repeal Obscumbocare it is UNAFFORDABLE PERIOD.  NO ILLEGALS SUDDEN BLANKET CITIZENSHIP That will destroy our electoral process.  NO MORE OBAMA

    When all the powers of the executive, the Legislature and the Judiciary are in the hands of one pipsqueak that is Tyranny.  He and his minions need to be ousted.  Physically dumped just like his barriers were - .

  • Let's be clear about this stuff:

    1. there was no vote on the UN Arms Treaty ... Senators and members of the House signed separate letters to Comrade-Imam Obama assuring him that the Left will never reach the 67 votes needed to ratify this mindless, anti-humanity treaty.

    2. Secretary Kerry is not authorized to 'sign' treaties for US -- he initialed the document. As of yesterday, the initialed document had not been forwarded to the Senate Treaties Committee, but when it is a number will be assigned to it, ostensibly a scheduling number for its reading and mark up in the committee. This idiotic document will get the same treatment the UN Small Arms Treaty of 1997 (draft -- which Mad Madalyn initialed), Law of the Sea treaty and Seabed Accords got -- it has sat unread, unmarked up, and never recommended for debate or other committee reading.

    3. US law prohibits ExOrd-directed administrative action on not yet-ratified treaties ... so there is very little Obozo can do without ratification, and what he can do will have little impact on us gun owners.

  • That's great! The fact that almost knew about that treaty is just more evidence of how the main stream media is letting us down. 

  • Well, some good Democrates had to vote against this Obama-Kerry-Hilary scheme to disarm America.  Thank goodness there are some real Americans left in the Senate to sink this treaty.  This stands tall for our Second Amendment, God Bless America!!!

  • This will make Obama angry sine he is against citizens having guns or any type of firearms. Let's see if he tries to get around the Senate vote with Executive Orders.

  •  It really wouldn't have been effective  trying and disarm the people of their rights. We would never obey an illegal law anyway.

  • Thank God! I didn't even know they were voting on this other evil thing today. God bless America!
