Huge 2nd Amendment Victory: U.N. Arms Trade Treaty Shot Down!

UN Arms Trade TreatyThe Second Amendment just won a HUGE  battle at the U.N. but WE THE PEOPLE must still win the war!

Due to massive public pressure – your pressure – fifty-one Senators asked Secretary of State Hillary Clinton not to sign the Arms Trade Treaty on Friday citing concerns that it would enable U.N. imposed gun control in the United States.

The Conference on the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (U.N. A.T.T.) has broken down and will NOT report a draft treaty to the member nations. This is a big victory for American gun owners, and the NRA is being widely credited for killing the U.N. A.T.T.

The Treaty has been the subject of four weeks of intense negotiations and seemed likely to be signed but the recent pressure forced the Administration to back off.  Many freedom loving, patriotic Americans like you sent over a MILLION emails to Congress and the NRA (National Rifle Association) has effectively lobbied against the treaty.

The NRA worked with pro-gun allies in the U.S. Congress and successfully assembled strong bipartisan opposition to any treaty that adversely impacts the Second Amendment. On two occasions the NRA was successful in convincing a majority of the U.S. Senate to sign letters to President Obama that made it clear that any treaty that included civilian arms was not going to be ratified by the U.S. Senate.

But it’s not dead yet…

The proponents of the treaty have goals that are clearly at odds with the American Constitution. Their refusal to remove civilian arms from the treaty was one major issue that led to the breakdown in negotiations.  The U.S. delegation made it clear that they could not move forward with the language as it had been drafted.

While this conference has failed to complete a treaty, the enemies of freedom will not give up.  It is likely that a new conference will be held sometime in the future and we must continue to fight alongside groups like the NRA to protect the rights of American gun owners.

This is concrete PROOF that YOUR VOICE DOES MATTER

Nothing scares a politician more than an informed and involved voter.

The battle against global gun control has been won for now but the war is far from over.

Communists, Marxists and socialists are like cockroaches, no matter how many times you stomp them out… they just keep coming.

Show your support for the Second Amendment and join the NRA today!

Thanks to all of the Patriot Watchmen like you who are standing for freedom!
