Urgent: U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly Seeks Citizen Help to Oppose U.N. Treaty (March 02, 2013)

** Urgent Action Needed - PLEASE contact anybody and everybody, Tweet, Facebook, email and CALL **

March 02, 2013

U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly is asking residents to help him stop the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.

Last year, Kelly sent a letter, signed by 130 House members, to the president and secretary of state opposing the treaty. He authored a resolution opposing the treaty in November with 89 bipartisan co-sponsors. He plans to re-introduce House Resolution 814 as a concurrent resolution within the next week. Kelly, a Republican, said he has 112 bipartisan cosponsors.

He said Kansas Sen. Jerry Moran is sponsoring a similar measure in the Senate.

Kelly said citizens can go to http://attpetition.com to voice their opinion. The petition urges President Obama to reject the treaty.

People have about 30 days to express their opinion before the United Nations considers the treaty, he said.

The U.S. Senate would need 67 senators for ratification of the treaty.

“We need 34 senators to sign on,” Kelly said to block U.S. support of the treaty.

“We want this to be a clarion call for the president and the Senate.”

Besides infringing on individual rights to bear arms, Kelly said, the treaty was crafted in a process that had dictatorships and terrorist sponsors such as Syria and Iran at the table.


Here is H. RES. 814:

Congress was elected by less than 38% of eligible voters.

How dare they pretend to represent any majority fit to rule?

In One hundred and forty Congress has led us to the brink of bankruptcy four times. Even now the Congress is begging to raise the debt ceiling to save us from bankruptcy.

If The Banks say no, then Congress is bankrupt, yet again.

Lower expenditures spend only revenues. There is plenty to work out.

Free includes debt-free!


Agreed. But did you sign the petition?

Can people oppose the UN without being so gullible as to call themselves a citizen of anything?
