Concerned treaty takes away U.S. rights

COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALDJune 21, 2013 

I believe 46 of our United States Senators just voted to give away our Second Amendment constitutional right to a foreign power by voting for the United Nations arms trade treaty. I believe this United Nations treaty would have placed international laws over and above United States law. Guess who voted in favor of such a disaster? Both Washington Democratic Senators Cantwell and Murray.

Were you ever asked for your opinion? Was any group of Washington citizens polled? I believe I still live under the United States and our laws, not what I believe to be the crooked United Nations, which I believe is presently controlled and run by third word dictators.
