Recently I received an email concerning the Senate vote on U.N.Resolution 2117 which deals with an international firearms control treaty and is an on-going attack on our 2nd Amendment guaranteeing the "right of the People to keep and bear arms."

Of particular interest is Point no. 11 which "Calls for member states to support weapons collection, disarmament "and an international firearms registry on all private guns and ammo."

Fortunately this resolution failed to pass the Senate by a vote of 53 nays to 46 yeas. It would have been the nail in the coffin to bind U.S. law to a foreign jurisprudence.

What I find remarkable is that 46 voted in favor of the death of our 2nd Amendment.The email listed the names and States of the 46 and you, Senators Warner and Kaine ,were on that list.

Now Senators, I am but a simple and private citizen. I am confused. I have many questions. I call your offices often but never get a reply. Why is that?

How is it that you,our own people,could allow such a back-door back-handed deceitful approach to  nullify such a cherished right even begin? Did you notify your state of the immensity of this proposal? If this be your drift did you not think about a due process congressional debate/amendment procedure instead of such nefarious subterfuge?

How is it that you do not feel in line with our traditions,our heritage,our culture,our past which,yes,is  necessarily linked with both self and national defense through firearms?

Have either of you really studied History and learned that the right to bear arms by a common citizenry is necessary as a LAST RESORT against tyranny or an evil government? Do you recognize and believe in the existence of evil?

Are either of you aware of how during Hurricane Katrina our own government demanded the confiscation of firearms from citizens defending their own homes in the darkness against unlawful intrusion, using against them their OWN National Guard and assisted by that rogue/pirate Blackwater group?

I hope that you will find time to answer my questions.I shall call again, but then, perhaps no one is home.
