A step in the right direction IMHO.'

(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.

    I'm still wary of the libs that advocate gun control, but Obama seems have the the knowledge that he or no politician can change our Constitution single handedly.
    It gives me more admiration for our Founding Fathers.

    But, it is sad to think that we have 46 Senators, that would
    put us under U.N. authority.
    Remember, when in Germany, Obumma said that he was a citizen
    of the world.
