    My comments added to the letter to senators:

    We, the undersigned, call on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama not to sign the Arms Trade Treaty on July 27th in New York City. We believe it will lead to international gun control passed without consulting the American people.

    These unconstitutional rulings will harm the economics of the country. Work out the revenue acquired by government and private business for those who travel, stay in motels, eat out, purchase hunting licenses and participate in shooting competitions. The revenus lost due to the loss of this sport will be in the billions of dollars range.

    If the UN truely wanted to make the world a safer place they would start with a ban on alcohol consumption, which is the cause of much of today's street violence, domestic violence and road accidents.

    To put it mildly I am very upset that the US is considering allowing an international organisation to make our laws for us. That is a direct affront to and assault on the sovereignty of the United States of America. The fact that these laws would be a direct attempt to allow an international organisation to negate part of the Constitution of the United States is setting a very dangerous precedent for the future of the people of the United States to be able to control who is making the laws in this country.

    Oh yeah! If you are on this forum, you are on a list! I'm on a bunch of lists!! My message was simple: Get the U.S. out of the U.N., and get the U.N. out of the U.S.

    Ok signed the petition, and got a reply back from my Senator already. Probably a form letter, but here it is. What do you think?

    Dear Mr. Riley:

    Thank you for getting in touch with me about the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (ATT).

    Since 2006, members of the United Nations have been negotiating a treaty to combat the illicit international trade of arms. The treaty would establish global standards for the import, export, and transfer of conventional weapons — ranging from tanks, fighter jets, small arms, and ammunition — to prevent them from fueling conflicts or falling into the hands of terrorists, warlords, and international crime syndicates.

    I have heard from many Ohioans who are concerned that an ATT could infringe upon their Second Amendment rights. The ATT is not intended to devise a global gun ban or deny law-abiding U.S. citizens their right to bear arms. The United States has made it clear throughout negotiations that any potential ATT must respect the sovereign rights of nations to regulate gun sales and ownership within their own borders. The Supreme Court has also ruled that no treaty may supersede the powers set forth by our Constitution or Bill of Rights.

    I fully support the Second Amendment right to bear arms and will continue to protect this fundamental right. Should the ATT come before the Senate for ratification, I will be sure to keep your views in mind, and I will not support any treaty that undermines the Second Amendment.

    Thank you again for contacting me.

    Sincerely,

    Sherrod Brown
    United States Senator
