Senate Votes 53-46 to stop US from joining UN Arms Trade Treaty

The Hill – Ramsey Cox – 3/23/2013
In the last batch of amendment votes to the budget, the Senate voted on several foreign policy proposals.

Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) introduced an amendment that would prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty in order to uphold the Second Amendment. His amendment passed on a 53-46 vote.

Republicans have been critical of President Obama’s decision to consider the treaty, although Obama has said he would not vote for anything that would violate the Second Amendment. 
Hundreds of amendments were offered. 

Hundreds of amendments were offered.

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) said he thought it was irresponsible to be considering major foreign policy decisions at 3 a.m. on Saturday morning.  – FINALLY – DEMOCRAT MADE SENSE!
