Senate Rejects United Nations Treaty, Will Do So Again

A United Nations treaty to ban discrimination against people with disabilities went down to defeat in the Senate on Tuesday in a 61-38 vote.

The treaty backed by President Obama and former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole (R-Kansas) fell 5 votes short of the two-thirds needed for confirmation as dozens of Senate Republicans objected that it would create new abortion rights and impede the ability of people to home-school disabled children.

This is why any UN treaty restricting arms trade is doomed to fail.  The UN can pass whatever it likes.  But there is not way you’re going to get 66 votes in the Senate to ratify it.

Everyone at the NRA needs to take a deep breath.  ok?

There’s something too this:


There is a similar situation going on with gun control in the states.  The argument is always”we need the federal government to control all guns because they travel from state to state.”

This is a common theme with people on the “Left.”  They realize that their policies are horrible and people will react by leaving.  So it’s always not enough to just destroy one state/country, they need to destroy the whole world.

Enter the UN.  Note that this week the brain trust at the UN said that we need a global tax to help the poor.

Beware the globalists.
