We Have a Tool to Protect Us From the U.N. and Small Arms Control Plus!!!


Fellow Patriots,

Following, is information on a bill, H.R. 575, the Second Amendment Preservation
Act (SAPA) of 2013 introduced by Congressman Steve Stockman, representing the 36th District
in Texas.

If enacted, this bill would ensure that Congress does not adopt any treaties that violate our
national sovereignty and any American’s constitutional rights. In addition, this bill would
strip any funding to the United Nations if the United Nations restricts or infringes upon the
right to keep and bear arms.

To me, this bill needs to be passed immediately if not sooner. H.R. 575 would accomplish
a whole plethora of protections that America needs NOW. Especially with the Democratic
Senate having a love affair with Obama and letting him do whatever he wants to do.

I’m going to contact my Congresswoman, Vicky Hartzler, right now and tell her to get this
bill out of committee and that if she refuses to act she will be putting another nail into the
coffin of her time in Congress.

Pass the word and see if you can get everyone you know to contact their representatives
and try to get action taken on the bill as soon as possible. We can never guess what
Obama is going to do next and we can’t afford the chance he will pull something stupid
under the table that we won’t learn about until its too late.

God Bless America and Keep Up the Fight. We have everything to lose.

Stockman seeks to strip U.N. funding over any anti-gun
rights treaty

WASHINGTON— Congressman Stockman is moving to block any potential or future
attempt by the United Nations to restrict gun ownership with H.R. 575, the “Second
Amendment Protection Act of 2013.”

“Treaties like the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty still pose a threat to our national sovereignty
and the Second Amendment. My bill is absolutely necessary in preventing such treaties
from being ratified and further limiting our constitutional right to keep and bear arms,” said
Congressman Stockman. “The U.N. has no right to infringe upon our nation’s gun rights.”

If enacted, this bill would ensure that Congress does not adopt any treaties that violate our
national sovereignty and any American’s constitutional rights. In addition, this bill would
strip any funding to the United Nations if the United Nations restricts or infringes upon the
right to keep and bear arms.

It has been referred to the House Foreign Affairs committee and has received two
co-sponsorships from Congressmen Charles Boustany (R-LA) and Rob Bishop (R-UT).

H. R. 575

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

February 6, 2013

Mr. Stockman introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs

A BILL

To express the sense of the Congress that the United States should not adopt any treaty that poses a threat to national sovereignty or abridges any rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution, such as the right to keep and bear arms, and to withhold funding from the United Nations unless the President certifies that the United Nations has not taken action to restrict, attempt to restrict, or otherwise adversely infringe upon the rights of individuals in the United States to keep and bear arms, or abridge any of the other constitutionally protected rights of citizens of the United States.

1.

Short title

This Act may be cited as the Second Amendment Protection Act of 2013.

2.

Sense of the Congress

(a)

Findings

The Congress finds that—

(1)

it is the constitutional power of Congress to determine United States foreign policy through the ratification of international treaties and adoption of laws;

(2)

by prematurely signing treaties and executive agreements, Presidents of the United States have opened the door for international organizations to unilaterally regulate the lives of citizens of the United States;

(3)

these international agreements, laws, and regulations are being applied domestically in the United States through the Supremacy Clause, which states, This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding;

(4)

the Supremacy Clause is useful to supersede conflicting Federal and State laws;

(5)

international and transnational organizations force their rules on people of the United States through conventions, multilateral agreements, and nonratified treaties, such as agreements that affect the private ownership of firearms by law-abiding citizens; and

(6)

United States sovereignty is risked by domestic legal applicability of international treaties and executive agreements that have not been voted on and congressionally adopted through formal processes which pose a threat to national sovereignty and the liberty of the people of the United States, including fundamental rights guaranteed under the United States Constitution, such as the right to keep and bear arms.

(b)

Sense of the Congress

That it is the sense of the Congress that the United States should not adopt any treaty that poses a threat to national sovereignty or abridges the rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution, such as the right to keep and bear arms, and should cease the provision of financial support to any entity that does so.

3.

Conditional prohibition on United Nations funding

(a)

In general

Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the United States may not provide any funding to the United Nations for a fiscal year unless, before the last day of the preceding fiscal year, the President makes the certification described in subsection (b).

(b)

Certification

The certification described in this subsection is a certification submitted to the Congress by the President, that states that the United Nations has not taken action to restrict, attempt to restrict, or otherwise adversely infringe on the rights of individuals in the United States to possess a firearm or ammunition, including by imposing burdens on international commerce, or abridge any of the other constitutionally protected rights of citizens of the United States.
