Beginning July 2, 2012 representatives from many of the world’s socialist, tyrannical and dictatorial regimes are meeting at United Nations headquarters inNew Yorkfor a month-long meeting, in which they’ll put the finishing touches on an international Arms Trade Treaty that could seriously restrict your freedom to own, purchase and carry a firearm.
Specifically, the U.N. wants to implement international gun registration requirements, bans on commonly owned firearms, tracking and registration of ammunition purchases, and create a new U.N. gun control bureaucracy.
President Obama, Secretary Clinton, and many more American politicians supportU.S.agreement to this UN treaty.

Here’s my letter
July 4, 2012
Dear President Obama:
Dear Representative Tierney:
Dear Senator Kerry:
Dear Senator Brown:
We are hearing a lot of talk on the internet that the Obama administration and some senators are considering in secret a UN treaty on small arms. Please let me know if these stories are true.
I strongly urge you to actively discourage and to vote against any version of a United Nations Small Arms Treaty.
The government of the United States does not have authority under the Constitution to prevent Americans from owning and bearing arms. Nor is it within the authority of our government to determine which arms or ammunition Americans may own and for what purpose. Therefore, the government of the United States does not have authority to negotiate with the United Nations on this subject. This is not a matter of my personal opinion or interpretation versus yours. If you do not understand and agree, then, according to the Constitution which you are duty bound to protect and defend, you are incapable of fulfilling the duties of your office.
I vow to make sure that any politician who votes for or supports this treaty, or any other treaty which reduces the sovereignty of American citizens such as the Law of the Sea Treaty currently being promoted by Senator Kerry, will be voted out of office.
Thank you in advance for protecting the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.
Clare Livingston Bromley, III
