    UN states fail to reach global arms trade treaty
    (huffy-puff....did I do it right?!)

    U.N. member states have failed to reach agreement on a new treaty to regulate the multibillion dollar global arms trade. Some diplomats and treaty supporters blamed the United States for triggering the unraveling of the month-long negotiating conference.

    **** In Washington, a bipartisan group of 51 senators on Thursday threatened to oppose the treaty if it falls short in protecting Americans' constitutional right to bear arms. In a letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, the senators expressed serious concerns with the draft treaty that has circulated at the United Nations, saying that it signals an expansion of gun control that would be unacceptable. ****

    Doe s...no t...com pute.

    Obama was supposed to be coming for our guns today. It is July 27. G-Day.

    Zero hour. The end of the 2nd Amendment. I saw the treaty. I read it. It said "Obama must take all guns from America." It was right there in black and white. Everybody saw it. They went on and on and on about it. They all had an advance copy.

    Good, I have a real Issue with the UN having any kind of authority what so ever over this country. Thank you very much.

    What? This is about keeping guns away from TERRORISTS? Well NO WONDER Republicans are against it!

    But...but...but...the gun makers told me this was an "Obama comes for your guns" treaty! They wouldn't lie just because this treaty affects their bottom line, would they?

    Naaaaaaah!



    So the gun makers can ship all the bullets they want to terrorists without reporting it, just no small arms.

    That makes sense!

    I know we weren't alone in our dissent.

    I'm just glad that our representative actually spoke up and represented.

    Too much money to be made in arms dealings. Some even goes to politicians. Geez, what a surprise.
