    Which 46 Senators voted to destroy us?

    We came four votes away from the U.S. Senate giving our Constitutional rights over to the United Nations.
    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.

    Was this THE VOTE, or a seperate measure to show opposition to the treaty?

    I only ask because it was just signed yesterday, it seems real fast work to get it to a vote already.

    Suspicion that this is the 2012 vote... I can't find anything from today about a vote, just that it was "signed".

    Got a link to this? I'm having a hard time believing Donnelly didn't vote for it.

    Also this will never be "unsigned" as that would have a very bad appearance, so this will forever be an axe waiting to drop the moment the Dems ever get full control, be it next election or 2024.

    Symbolic vote against a symbolic UN treaty. Showmanship at its worst, and some folks obviously just can't get enough.

    You don't have to vote down a treaty. You have to get 2/3 of the Senate to ratify it before it takes affect. As has been explained numerous times (and which you can read yourself, as the treaty is online) it doesn't create any new laws in the US, doesn't have any affect on you whatsoever, and certainly doesn't give the UN any additional authority to regulate arms or the arms trade with the US and its partners.
    New signature wanted, apply within.

    It's the vote from the opposition. Snopes already talked about this.
