UN Resolution 2117 – Who Voted for Disarmament

This information came in my e-mail today and as we close in on the mid-term election, I totally think people NEED TO BE EDUCATED about the representatives they will be voting for or against.

This is about the United Nations Resolution 2117 – regarding disarming people. The first information is from the e-mail and below that, I will share information from the Truth or Fiction website –

The U.N. Resolution 2117 lists 21 points dealing with firearms control, but perhaps of most interest is point number 11: “CALLS FOR MEMBER STATES TO SUPPORT WEAPONS COLLECTION, DISARMAMENT —”

HOORAY – 53-46 vote – The U.S. Senate voted against the U.N. resolution.

This is that brief, glorious moment in history when everyone stands around…reloading.

Now, Which 46 Senators Voted to Destroy Us? Well, let their names become known !! See below . If you vote in one of the states listed with these 46 “legis..traitors”… vote against them.

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 aninternational gun registry, now get this,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.

Information from Truth or Fiction Regarding UN Treaty 2117 –

Summary of the eRumor:
This is a forwarded email that is titled “List of Traitors.”  It alleged that 46 Democratic members of the U.S. Senate voted not to uphold Second Amendment rights and allow the United States to enter into U.N. Resolution 2117, a United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.  The email said that no Republican Senators voted in this manner.

The Truth:
It is true that 46 Senators voted against Amendment 139 on the Senate Floor on March 23, 2013.  There were actually 44 Senators from the Democratic Party. Two from the list were Independents,  Senator Sanders of Vermont and Senator King of Maine.  We have them highlighted on the list below in red.

The statement of purpose on the Amendment said, “To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (U.N. Resolution 2117).”  This according to the official website of the U.S. Senate.

The Amendment passed by a narrow margin 53 to 46 with one member not voting.

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

    Thank you for posting this. I’m still amazed when I read stats like this and realize how many voters in this country are foolishly backing a party that wants to give our sovereignty away.

    • Too many people refuse to put any effort into knowing what’s happening in the world and around them. Its so sad that their ambivalence hurts all of us. And seriously – many people take a lot for granted and don’t see, realize or acknowledge these things they take for granted can disappear if more people don’t pay attention. The last 6 years prove how things can change and that plenty in the government don’t feel there is any accountability for their actions.
