Default Mary Landrieu Screws the 2nd Amendment - Again.

This really needs read and passed around and then vote out these traitors!!

Subject: FW: 46 Senators / this is frightening !

Which 46 Senators Voted to Destroy Us?

In a 53-46 vote, the Senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.

The Statement of Purpose from the Bill reads:

"To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty."

The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms.

The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S. and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry on all private guns and ammo.

Astonishingly, 46 out of our 100 United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional rights to a foreign power.
Here are the 46 senators who voted to give your rights to the U.N..

Baldwin (D-WI)
Baucus (D-MT)
Bennett (D-CO)
Blumenthal (D-CT)
Boxer (D-CA)
Brown (D-OH)
Cantwell (D-WA)
Cardin (D-MD)
Carper (D-DE)
Casey (D-PA)
Coons (D-DE)
Cowan (D-MA)
Durbin (D-IL)
Feinstein (D-CA)
Franken (D-MN)
Gillibrand (D-NY)
Harkin (D-IA)
Hirono (D-HI)
Johnson (D-SD)
Kaine (D-VA)
King (I-ME)
Klobuchar (D-MN)
Landrieu (D-LA)
Leahy (D-VT)
Levin (D-MI)
McCaskill (D-MO)
Menendez (D-NJ)
Merkley (D-OR)
Mikulski (D-MD)
Murphy (D-CT)
Murray (D-WA)
Nelson (D-FL)
Reed (D-RI)
Reid (D-NV)
Rockefeller (D-WV)
Sanders (I-VT)
Schatz (D-HI)
Schumer (D-NY)
Shaheen (D-NH)
Stabenow (D-MI)
Udall (D-CO)
Udall (D-NM)
Warner (D-VA)
Warren (D-MA)
Whitehouse (D-RI)
Wyden (D-OR)

Folks: This needs to go viral. These Senators voted to let the UN take OUR guns.

They need to lose their next election.

We have been betrayed.

46 Senators Voted to Give your 2nd Amendment Constitutional Rights to the U.N.

I just have to wonder who comes up with these things. I mean I get the point, scare the people who aren't going to read into it, but that is something so easy to check up on.

If I'm reading that Treaty right anyway, its no where near what its made out to be. I don't know if there is hidden language within, but it sounds like all it is intended to do is regulate international trade of guns to dangerous regions.

Maybe I'm mistaken. Anyone ever read this entire thing? Or is everyone's opinion solely based on what the media has to say about it?

Here's the NRA's take:

Anti-gun treaty proponents continue to mislead the public, claiming the treaty would have no impact on American gun owners. That's a bald-faced lie.

For example, the most recent draft treaty includes import/export controls that would require officials in an importing country to collect information on the "end user" of a firearm, keep the information for 20 years, and provide the information to the country from which the gun was exported. In other words, if you bought a Beretta shotgun, you would be an "end user" and the U.S. government would have to keep a record of you and notify the Italian government about your purchase. That is gun registration. If the U.S. refuses to implement this data collection on law-abiding American gun owners, other nations might be required to ban the export of firearms to the U.S.

And even if the U.S. never ratifies--or even signs--the treaty, many other nations will. The cost of complying with the treaty would drive up the price of imported firearms and probably force some companies to take their products off the U.S. market.

That's not all. This week, the delegates focused on an endless series of drafts that would either ban exportation or require states to consider the risk of exporting, if the arms could be used to commit crime, or could "be diverted to unauthorized end users" or "the illicit market." Exports could also be blocked if they would "support" or "encourage" terrorist acts or "provoke, prolong or aggravate acts of aggression or other breaches of the peace," or could be used in "gender-based violence" or to inflict "human suffering." Anti-gun activists here and abroad have long claimed that gun ownership in general does all of these things, so any of these provisions could be abused by foreign governments to shut off exports to law-abiding Americans.
Saying it is an outright ban is an exaggeration. But the treaty definitely requires a registration scheme, and will definitely drive prices up with greater burdens for imports.

Are there people out there still making excuses for Mary Landrieu? She says she's pro gun, pro oil, pro oil drilling, but she supports Obama, Reid and Pelosi and the rest of the socialists in Congress. She was also pro Obamacare until it's destructive failures were exposed and it became political suicide to continue to support it and now she's crawfishing, but we have the tapes and the videos Mary.

Doesn't matter. The people will put her back in because she supports sitting on your butt and doing nothing. I would not be terribly surprised if she gets back in again.

The outcome of any Louisiana election is impossible to predict 11 months ahead. However, it is obvious that Landrieu is vulnerable. The outcome will depend on how well Cassidy and Maness communicate their message, energize their supporters, and who makes the run off election.

Louisiana has a real opportunity here to shift the power balance in DC by defeating Landrieu.
