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.]

  • Glad they defeated it! We do not want more corruption in this Nation! Thanks Craig for letting us know. I can rest a little bit...

  • Read "Screwd" by Dick Morris for good UN information - ISBN:978-0-06-219669-9

  • Richard, they had better keep it together, too, if they know what's good for them. Otherwise, we the people are coming for them! We are Americans ; hear us roar!

  • The Senate finally got their shit together on this one. KUDOS to them

  • Very surprising but elating. As strange as this may seem we should find out why this happened so that we can reapply the same method of showing people the truth in the future. Once again, as always it comes down to allowing the people via the media to see what's happening in this country.

  • Ted, I've said before: the wrong buildings were bombed. Dumocrats don't understand why.

    And Terry; you are perfectly right about the u.n.; they are a tool of the nwo. God help us.

  • The U N Is A Tool Of The New World Order,,,Why do you think Obama ,,,Hilary Clinton and John Kerry spend so much time there,,,They want a new world order,,,and if Hilary runs and wins in 2016 then you will have 4 more years of Obama,,,and you will never know what happened in ben gahzi,,,

  • well thats the first good thing the senate has done,,,How much pork was in that,,,,

  • I'm beginning to think the UN is a tool of the new world order. It persistently weighs down the United States with legal maneuvers (recent attack on our 2nd amendment rights), military involvements, and financial burdens. We cannot defeat the New World Order until we get rid of the United Nations.

  • Time to tell the UN to get the hell out and take their bills and building with them
