Senate votes 53-46 to stop US from joining UN Arms Trade Treaty

From The Hill:

In the last batch of amendment votes to the budget, the Senate voted on several foreign policy proposals.

Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) introduced an amendment that would prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty in order to uphold the Second Amendment. His amendment passed on a 53-46 vote.

Republicans have been critical of President Obama’s decision to consider the treaty, although “Obama has said he would not vote for anything that would violate the Second Amendment.”  [Obama doesn’t think anything violated the 2nd Amendment.]


Remember Senator James Imhofe, Republican of Oklahoma. We owe him our thanks for this.

Also, – Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) offered an amendment to require photo ID to vote in federal elections, it failed 44-54. The only reason to be opposed to voter ID is because you want to cheat. This looks like a straight party line vote, Republicans are for voter ID because they want to stop voter fraud, Democrats are against voter ID because they want to commit voter fraud. Every time a Democrat votes twice it cancels out the vote of someone who voted legally, no less than if the lawful voter had been abducted and kept bound and gagged until the polls closed. Voter fraud is vote suppression.
