Sen­a­tor Jim Inhofe added an amend­ment to the Unit­ed Nations Arms Trade Treaty that would poten­tial­ly shut down parts of the Unit­ed Nations if the treaty were to pass. Pri­or to Inhofe’s amend­ment, Sen­a­tor Mike Crapo added an amend­ment to push back Obama’s Depart­ment of Jus­tice and their Oper­a­tion Choke Point.

Oper­a­tion Choke Point was an over­reach of Attor­ney Gen­er­al Eric Hold­er to strong-arm busi­ness­es he doesn’t like (like gun man­u­fac­tur­ers and deal­ers) by putting pres­sure on banks to not do busi­ness with them (H/T Eagle Ris­ing).

Inhofe was also able to add an amend­ment to shut down the Unit­ed Nations Arms Trade Treaty at a vote of 59 to 41. Inofe’s amend­ment was writ­ten so that if the U.N. pass­es the Arms Trade Treaty, then Con­gress can stop all fund­ing to any part of the U.N. that would sup­port the enforce­ment and imple­men­ta­tion of the treaty.

Inhofe made this state­ment about the treaty: “The Pres­i­dent should remove the Unit­ed States’ as a sig­na­to­ry nation on an ambigu­ous treaty, which does noth­ing to guar­an­tee the pro­tec­tion of per­son­al gun own­er­ship and could poten­tial­ly inter­fere with the Unit­ed States’ abil­i­ty to aid allies.”

Leg­isla­tive coun­sel Michael Ham­mond added to Free­dom Out­post: “This amend­ment would clear­ly defund the Unit­ed Nations Arms Trade Treaty Sec­re­tari­at or any inter­na­tion­al with­in the UN or out­side the UN, which has been deemed to have been cre­at­ed to sup­port the imple­men­ta­tion of the ATT.”

The Sen­ate has already passed a res­o­lu­tion oppos­ing the treaty. This res­o­lu­tion informs the pres­i­dent that the Sen­ate will not rat­i­fy it.

It is unbe­liev­able to see the lengths that Oba­ma has gone to cir­cum­vent two-thirds of our gov­ern­ment to for­ward his own seem­ing­ly social­ist agen­da. It is refresh­ing to see sen­a­tors tak­ing a stand against Oba­ma and remind­ing him that he can­not dic­tate laws and treaties to the Amer­i­can peo­ple.

Please share this arti­cle on Face­book and Twit­ter if you agree that Oba­ma and the U.N. need to be stopped and that our right to bear arms must be pro­tect­ed.
