We have written articles about Senator Mary Landrieu before, but today we could not believe what we heard from her office. They told us today that Senator Mary Landrieu would vote “NO” to support both the Second Amendment and the Constitution. This confirms what Senator Mary Landrieu has done just recently, on March 31, 2013 to be precise. See the article at the link below to view the vote that Senator Mary Landrieu cast, she was one of the 46 people that voted “YES” to allow the United nations Small Arms Treaty which would have given the United nations power even Congress does not have!
Today we called Senator Mary Landrieu’s office to ask if she would vote for or against the Second Amendment and the Constitution. The lady on the phone was very quick to state that Senator Mary Landrieu had voted against the Assault Weapon law back in 2004 and we told her that Senator Landrieu had voted to “allow” the United Nations Small Arms Treaty which is Against the Second Amendment and the Constitution because it “allows” the United nations to do as they please within the United States. The lady became very flustered and went directly back to the vote from 2004. We again asked her just how was Senator Landrieu going to vote on the Second Amendment and the Constitution. The lady asked us, “What do you mean?” We then asked her very clearly, “This is a simple question with just a simple Yes or no.” We proceeded to ask the lady, “Will Senator Mary Landrieu vote for the Second Amendment and the Constitution?” The lady came back right away and stated, “NO!” So given this remark from the office of Senator Mary Landrieu, we can clearly state that Senator Mary Landrieu according to her office will NOT vote to support either the Second Amendment nor the Constitution!
But we did not stop here, we sent off an e-mail to Representative Rodney Alexander to see what his position was with the Second Amendment and the Constitution. Below is the answer sent to us. Although it makes a lot of writing, Representative Alexander never came out with a clear “yes” or “no” on whether he supports the Second Amendment and the Constitution. If you read his replay, it sounds more like he supports some of it and is waiting to see what others may do before he decides what he will do. This to us is not clear and is an ambiguous answer that circumvents the question of whether or not does he support the Second Amendment and the Constitution. With his answer below, we must begin to question his support of both the Second Amendment and the Constitution since he would not give a clear and concise answer to the question at all.

Dear Mr. ………:
Thank you for contacting me with your concerns regarding gun control and the Second Amendment. I appreciate hearing your thoughts on this issue. Knowing your views helps me to better represent you in Congress.
First, let me say that my heart goes out to the victims and families of the recent shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn. As a father and a grandfather, I cannot even begin to comprehend the pain and heartache the families of the victims must be going through. I hope they can find peace in knowing that our thoughts and prayers remain with them during this difficult time.
With the recent senseless and tragic acts of violence in Colorado, Connecticut, and elsewhere, many have called for a reexamination of America’s gun laws. It seems that the frequency of these dreadful acts is on the rise, and it is up to America’s law makers and law enforcement bodies to do everything in their power to prevent these events from occurring again. Naturally, one of the first suggestions after events like these is to institute stricter gun control laws, and I am happy to participate in this debate. In response to the shooting in Connecticut, President Obama established a commission headed by Vice President Biden to examine America’s gun laws and make recommendations for how they can be reformed. On January 16, 2013, after the conclusion of the commission’s discussions, the President announced his plan of action.
First, he announced 23 new executive orders designed to clarify current law and make recommendations on how those laws should be enforced. Though I remain concerned over the President’s continued use of executive orders, these introduced on gun control are mostly clarifications of current law or symbolic gestures that should have little to no impact on law abiding citizens. The President does not have the ability to create any new laws and impose them on the American people.
He also proposed new gun control measures, including a new assault weapons ban and magazine size regulations. However, measures such as these require congressional action and cannot be implemented by executive orders. Unfortunately, I believe these proposals by the President are approaching the problem of gun violence from the wrong direction. They will not stop criminals from getting their hands on weapons and using them for harm. Instead, the suggested policies will punish law-abiding citizens by placing undue restrictions on valid activities involving firearms.
With that said, Congress cannot shy away from this debate. We must confront this issue head-on and do what we can to prevent these senseless acts of violence from happening again. However, gun control alone will never be the solution to this problem. We must examine the motives behind the shooters and address the underlying mental health problems that seem to be common in all of these events. Without taking a big-picture approach, we only stand to create more laws and restrictions without doing anything to remedy the problem.
As Congress works through this debate, I want you to know that I remain a supporter of the Second Amendment. The right to bear arms is a fundamental right that is assured to every law-abiding citizen, and there is perhaps no other region in the country that exercises this right more so than Louisiana’s Fifth Congressional District. Recreational hunting and shooting in Louisiana are traditions that extend back for generations, and I was elected on the promise that I would continue to protect those traditions.
Thank you again for contacting me on this very important issue. I hope that you will continue to keep me informed of the issues important to you and your family.
MEMBER OF CONGRESS
We have enclosed another e-mail below to show just whom the 46 Senators were that voted FOR “Allowing” the United Nations Small Arms Treaty! We do have to mention here that Senator Mary Landrieu had stated once earlier that she does not vote along party lines, but her vote below seems to indicate that she does indeed vote with the Democratic Party and some have stated that this section of the Democratic Party is more closely aligned with Marxist and Socialist than they are with the old Democratic Party! In 2014 we do have a chance to change this ideology and get rid of Senator Mary Landrieu and hopefully anyone else whom does NOT honor the Constitution!
Make sure that everyone on your mailing list is aware of this, more especially those in states where their Senators voted to give your rights away. Thank god they fell 8 votes short.
People this needs to go viral. These Senators voted to let the UN take our guns. They need to lose the election. We have been betrayed.

Over the weekend, we came four votes away from the United States Senate giving our Constitutional rights over to the United Nations. In a 53-46 vote, the senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.
The Statement of Purpose from the bill <http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=113&session=1&vote=00091> read:
To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.
The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration <http://offgridsurvival.com/obama-unguncontrol/> , would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms. The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S., and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry on all private guns and ammo.
Astonishingly, 46 of our United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional rights to a foreign power…and, 45 are Democrats. Imagine that!
Here are the 46 senators that voted to give your rights to the U.N.
