Note to Kerry: Americans are ready, able, and willing to fight for our Constitution. If you think you we’re idly standing by and are willing to ‘go along with’ anything you propose that violates our Bill of Rights, you should think again. It would be a heinous act for you to pass a law that would put us in the position that we would have to choose to either honor the US Constitution by disobeying or cower to the destruction of our country by obeying. I believe you know which choice most of us would make.
The treaty would require countries that ratify it to establish national regulations to control the transfer of conventional arms and components and to regulate arms brokers, but it will not explicitly control the domestic use of weapons in any country.
Still, gun-rights supporters on Capitol Hill warn the treaty could be used as the basis for additional gun regulations inside the U.S. and have threatened not to ratify.
Over the summer, 130 members of Congress signed a letter to President Obama and Kerry urging them to reject the measure for this and other reasons.
Our Constitution says:
This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the constitution or laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding.
Yes, all treaties have to be ratified. But it is done by the Senate. WHO controls the Senate? Democrats. Now let’s say the Senate does not ratify this treaty. With Obama’s track record, he will find a way to “impose his will.”
This should have Dems worried too. If this administration keeps getting away with this stuff, eventually they will get to something that YOU (a Democrat) may actually care about.
Democrats: Proceed at your own risk. Kerry can sign anything his little left wing heart desires. If the senate ratifies; the Senators who vote for ratification will be defeated in the next election.
