We Need This Right
On July 27 the United Nations is set to approve an International Arms Control Treaty. A number of U.N. member nations want civilian gun control included. Hillary Clinton is expected to sign this treaty on behalf of the United States for the Obama administration.
Our forefathers understood the importance of our right to defend and protect ourselves and our families. The Second Amendment to our Constitution protects these rights.
If the U.S. signs this treaty and civilian gun control is included, we would be at the mercy of international interference in our right to bear arms.
Although treaties must be ratified by two-thirds of the U.S. Senate, the 1969 Vienna Convention created obligations that relate to simply signing a treaty.
Senate Bill S.2205 and House Bill H.R. 5846, both titled “The Second Amendment Sovereignty Act of 2012,” attempt to protect the freedoms of American gun owners and prohibit funds from being expended to restrict Second Amendment rights or to regulate domestic firearms. Both these bills are currently in committees that handle foreign relations.
Our law-abiding gun owners represent a domestic army 80 to 100 million strong that serves as a deterrent to foreign enemies who might consider an invasion. It is very important that we maintain this protection. As robberies and home invasions increase, we need the ability to protect and defend our homes, our businesses and our persons.
Please contact our senators, Richard Burr and Kay Hagan, and Rep. Howard Coble.
Rep. Renee Ellmers serves on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. She may represent us after the November elections and should be interested in your thoughts.
It is important they know that you expect them to protect your Second Amendment rights and hopefully sign on as co-sponsors of these bills.
