Congress has tried over 30 times & still gets the result that they don't want to accept, if nothing changes then why keep trying & spending? If after the elections & there is a change then that's another story. Even better yet why not put it on the ballot & allow voters to decide since they are the ones that are affected?
This UN firearms vote may come as early as within about one month. My understanding is that they are currently bickering over finalizing what is to be considered "unauthorized". Perhaps this is intended to disarm all of the peace lovers in the middle east? Nah!
I quote Rand Paul (from an email he sent out to supporters today): "This UN Gun Ban would almost certainly FORCE the United States to participate in an international gun registry and could require the confiscation and destruction of ALL "unauthorized" civilian firearms in America."
Clearly Rand Paul is taking this quite seriously. If it didn't supersede the Constitution, why should he even be in the least concerned?
