U.S. Senate Stands with NRA in Strongly Opposing Gun Control Efforts

U.S. Senate Stands with NRA
in Strongly Opposing U.N. Gun Control Efforts

For nearly 20 years, the NRA has worked tirelessly to oppose any United Nations effort to undermine the constitutional rights of law-abiding American gun owners. The latest attempt by the U.N. and global gun banners to eliminate our Second Amendment freedoms is to include civilian arms in the current Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), which will be finalized next year.

In order for any treaty to take effect, however, it must be ratified by two-thirds of the U.S. Senate. To ensure that any ATT that includes civilian arms is dead on arrival in the Senate, the NRA has been working to get as many U.S. Senators as possible to publicly oppose any ATT that includes restrictions on civilian arms.

As of this morning, 50 members of the U.S. Senate have signed letters to President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton saying they will oppose any ATT that includes civilian firearms ownership. These strongly worded letters caution the President and Secretary of State to uphold the Constitution of the United States. As Senator Jerry Moran's letter warns, “(A)s the treaty process continues, we strongly encourage your administration to uphold our constitutional protections of civilian firearms ownership. These freedoms are non-negotiable, and we will oppose ratification of an Arms Trade Treaty presented to the Senate that in any way restricts the rights of law-abiding U.S. citizens to manufacture, assemble, possess, transfer or purchase firearms, ammunition and related items.”

Thanking the NRA for our long-standing work on this issue, Senator Moran remarked, "I appreciate the NRA's partnership on this important effort to defend the rights of American gun owners. I want to thank them for their active support in sending a strong message to the Obama Administration that our firearm freedoms are not negotiable."

As we have for nearly two decades, the NRA will continue to fight against any U.N. treaty that undermines the constitutional rights of American gun owners. These letters send a clear message to the international bureaucrats who want to eliminate our fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms. Clearly, a U.N. ATT that includes civilian arms within its scope is not supported by the American people or their elected U.S. Senators. We are grateful to Senator Moran, Senator Jon Tester, and all members of the Senate who have chosen to stand on the side of America's 80 million gun owners in opposition to those who want to eliminate our freedoms. And thank you as well to those NRA members who contacted their Senators and encouraged them to support this critical effort.

This is all very well and good at face value, but will it prevent our petulant child imposter who claims to be President from bringing this treaty through the "back door" by using his Executive Powers as he has done with other unlawful items? I pray to God it does!

No, you won’t find Jon Tester or Max Baucus on the Yellowstone picking agates…

You will find them working hard to ruin your way of life--in Montana and elsewhere.

Jon tester and Max Baucus are hard-line Montana socialists, both bought and sold by those corrupt union bosses who have commandeered the Democratic party.

Jon Tester and Max Baucus are Made-In-Montana plastic marionettes twitching and bobbing to the political whims of their "owners."

These Big Sky dummy-dolls put on the face of good old Montana boys, but they are far from that. In fact, they are progressive socialists who do only as their party leaders dictate. While union organizers tug and pull at their dummy strings, Max and Jon dance and bob, jerking in the political winds of depravity, bribery, debauchery, and turpitude.

And if you own a non-government business or if you work in the private sector, they want to put you out of work so you will be supported by either:

1 - One of their government entitlement programs, or
2 - A government job, if you can get one after you lose your private sector job.

Don't worry, all of Jon's and Max's out-of-work friends will be in line for government jobs BEFORE you, so you will be poor and hungry for quite a while, barely surviving on one of their failed government programs after they destroy your job, your current employer, and your way of life.

If you doubt this is true, look at their records. All of their votes are for socialist, anti-business, pro-big-government causes and programs. All of their actions are in line with those corrupt unions that manage the White House.

Jon Tester and Max Baucus are ruining our country and transforming it into Euro-Greece.
