Secretary of State John Kerry signed away our Second Amendment rights earlier this year when he signed the Arms Trade Treaty at the UN.
Now we have a chance to get them back!
As long as the Senate has not rejected the Treaty, it takes effect even without being ratified under the Vienna Convention.
But Senator James Inhofe (R-OKla.) has inserted an amendment into the Armed Services Appropriations bill barring funding of implementation of the Treaty for a year.
We need to get this bill passed! The House goes home on Friday. Unless both houses pass it by Friday, the president will govern with a continuing resolution and will implement the treaty!!!
PLEASE sign this petition and circulate it to everybody you know!
You may have amassed signatures against the Arms Trade Treaty before, but now it is urgent. If this bill is not approved in the next 72 hours, the Treaty will be implemented.
(Some are complaining that the bill does not include sanctions on Iran. I agree with their concerns. But Inhofe opted to move ahead anyway to get the cutoff of Arms Treaty funding. It is that crucial!)
We will forward your signature to your Senators and Congressman. Please be sure to include your name, hard mailing address, and your email so we can do so.
We'll add your email address to our Alerts list to keep you posted on progress and let you know if we need to take further action.
Please get to work!
