Please sure all your friends in every State see these names. The vote and the bill is a matter of public record.
Over the weekend, we came four votes away from the United States Senate giving our Constitutional rights over to the United Nations. In a 53-46 vote, the senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.
The Statement of Purpose from the bill read:
To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.
The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms. The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S., and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry on all private guns and ammo.
Astonishingly, 46 of our United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional rights to a foreign power.
from Senate records- a nay indicates unwillingness to stop the unconstitutional UN treaty:

This is a list of traitors. Traitors should be dealt with in the same manner they have been for centuries.
were there any Repubs who voted to cede to the UN?
All Democrats — and all should be replaced.
Nay Paul (R-KY)
Nay Rubio (R-FL)
Nay Scott (R-SC)
46 votes for treaty......ALL DIMOCRATS.
Please correct me if am wrong but a NAY is a No Vote Not to enter Treaty or approve treaty with UN.
Yes. The ones who voted nay, unless I’m reading this wrong.
We are getting sold right here on our own soil.
That's about the only way I would consider rejoining.
Wake up and smell the stink NRA!
I think a nay vote was FOR what the UN was doing. Somebody tell me I’m wrong.
Burr (R-NC) is listed as a Nay and a Yea. Mistake?
Read it again...No Republican voted Nay!
That bill is worse than a ban on some specific models or types of guns. It trashes the 4th Amend., the 5th Amend. and the 10th Amend. as well as the 2nd Amend. Look at the precedents it sets regarding the freedom to travel.
This is confusing... Sanders voted with Cruz against the UN????!!!! He’s the biggest leftie pr*ck in the senate.
Are we sure this is accurate?
Many others listed as both Nay and Yea. Were there two votes?
Haha. I was reading it wrong, placing the yea before the name. Thanks... i truly thought the world had turned upside down there.
That said, on multiple readings I can't figure out whether the vote "yea" or "nay" is placed before or after the senator's name. It's very confusing.
