The National Rifle Association (NRA) on Saturday thanked Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) for introducing an amendment during the Senate’s budget “vote-a-rama” to prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.


The full Senate passed Inhofe’s amendment early Saturday morning on a 53-46 vote.

In a statement, Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, said the fight to oppose “any United Nations effort to undermine the constitutional rights of law-abiding American gun owners” has grown “more intense.”

“Thanks to the efforts of Senator Inhofe, we are one step closer to ensuring the UN will not trample on the freedoms our Founding Fathers guaranteed to us,” Cox said.

The U.N. Arms Trade Treaty would regulate international arms sales. Negotiations end on March 28.

The NRA, which has lobbied hard against the treaty, says it will restrict the domestic sale of firearms.

The Obama administration, which backs the treaty, has said its language would not affect domestic arms sales and would merely require the rest of the world to adopt America's already strong export controls.

“We’re negotiating a treaty that cedes our authority to have trade agreements with our allies in terms of trading arms,” Inhofe said. “This is probably the last time this year that you’ll be able to vote for your Second Amendment rights.”

And, if you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep it.

And, if you don't make over 250,000 dollars a year, you will not see a tax increase.

And, Guantanamo will be closed in one year.

And, I can no more disown reverend wright, than I can disown my own grandmother.

Sure.......you can believe this liar. Sad to say, but I'm sure more than a few on this forum voted for him.

The continuing resolution bill also included pro gun provisions. Dem's voted for them to get the bill passed. All of the provisions voted on are continuations of already existing law.

Need to find a list later this evening.

The four gun provisions are: (1) A measure which would prevent the Justice Department from requiring firearms dealers to conduct inventories to make sure weapons haven’t been stolen;

(2) A measure which would prevent the government from changing the definition of antique guns;

(3) A measure which would prevent the Justice Department from denying a license to firearms dealers who report no business activity;

(4) A measure that would require the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to include language in firearms data stating that the information can’t be used to make conclusions about gun crimes.

Casey voted against the amendment.

Casey also voted against a amendment that would have kept illegals from getting Obamacare.

Not that we would not expect anything less from our liberal career politician senator.
