The NRA working with our allies in Congress successfully assembled strong bipartisan opposition to any treaty that adversely impacts the Second Amendment. On two occasions the NRA was successful in convincing a majority of the U.S. Senate to sign letters to President Obama that made it clear that any treaty that included civilian arms was not going to be ratified by the U.S. Senate.

From his grave came "my cold dead hands." No parsing of words, on where he stood.
Now, if we could implant spines in Washington.:whistling:

As I understand it, the US (then Russia and China) didn't approve it because they supposedly need "more time". The US won't re-visit the issue until AFTER the elections.....this way they avoid a big dust-up which would seriously hurt the Dems and Obama in November. They WILL address the treaty early next year.
So, if Obama wins (and his "coat-tails" can give both houses of Congress to the Dems), it will be "full speed ahead". Who will stop it?

Huh? This is an NRA thread. Stay on topic and next time don't forget your Paul Derangement Syndrome meds before bed.

no, time out... you slammed the nra for taking credit for a win, and said to keep sending them checks. how are you any different with your ron paul worship?

the nra has a track record. why are nra fans supposed to not praise them for a possible win?

if you want to come after me personally, go right ahead. i'm sure that living in your mom's basement wishing you could have ron pauls lovechild will work out well for you.

re-read what you posted.

Maybe take a double dose of those meds. This thread has nothing to do with Paul and petty personal attacks only make you look...well, petty.

Ask folks like Bill Atkins and David Olofson how helpful the NRA is at protecting gun owners and members when they need it. They collect the checks, then disappear when help is actually needed. Grassroots pressure is what got the Treaty temporarily halted, not the mega-lobbyist NRA. The NRA loves to claim credit for the victories but disappears when gun control does move forward or gun owners get shafted by the feds.

Russia will never sign. China might, but will ignore it and continue to sell anything to most anyone.:whistling:

All this means is the Obama will be that much more busy with his parting executive orders before he returns to his job as a Marxist street thug in January.

here's an idea. since it appears you can present facts without being insultive. since it appears when someone attack what you believe in, how you react,you may rememeber that in the future.

since obviously, everyone who posted in the thread believes in the n.r.a., you should remember that fact.

seems fair. cause having someone attack ad hom just isn't very nice, is it?

State has already signaled their support for a second round of negotiations next year, after the election.

Feel free to point out whatever I said that was untrue and Ill be happy to debate it with you.

Actually what my post said was that YOU, the grassroots, stopped the Treaty from passing, not some lobbyist in DC. Weird how I can compliment people without them even knowing it. You should be saying yeah F the NRA, I stopped that by calling my Senator and making my opinion as a constituent known.

You are correct.
