There is a development in the United Nations that could affect our Second Amendment rights here in the United States of America. Throughout the month of July, 2012, delegates at a UN conference have been hammering out the details of the UN Arms Trade Treaty. This is what the treaty could bring to the United States:

• Enact internationally agreed licensing requirements for Americans • Confiscate and destroy unauthorized firearms of Americans while allowing the U.S. government to keep theirs • Ban the trade, sale, and private ownership of semi-automatic guns • Create and mandate an international registry to organize an encompassing gun confiscation in America

President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have supported this treaty and say they will approve it when the opportunity presents itself. Once they approve it our last defense is the Senate. For the Treaty to pass the Senate would need 67 out of 100 votes supporting the treaty. We cannot let this happen. Sign this petition to help keep the 'Arms Trade Treaty' out of our United States.

We do have support from those in power. Senator Jerry Moran along with 44 other senators sent a letter to Obama and Hillary expressing their disagreements with this treaty: “Our country’s sovereignty and the Second Amendment rights of American citizens must not be infringed upon by the United Nations. Today, the Senate sends a powerful message to the Obama Administration: an Arms Trade Treaty that does not protect ownership of civilian firearms will fail in the Senate. Our firearm freedoms are not negotiable.” We have support from the Senate and they must know their people are behind them.

Sign this petition, spread the word, and keep our Second Amendment rights intact!
