Governor Hickenlooper isn’t sure if he is for or against his own gun control laws, but one thing is certain; Senator Udall wants to see you disarmed. In no uncertain terms, he does not believe in the right to keep and bear arms. In fact, he wants to ban “high capacity” magazines, he wants universal background checks and lastly he wants to renew the “assault weapons” ban. In December of 2012, he spoke with Eli Stokols to clear up his position. “I’ve come to the conclusion that military style weapons really don’t have any place in our society”, Udall told Stokols. “We ought to reinstate the assault weapons ban that served us well for 10 years from 1994 to 2004.”
Before we move on with Udall, take notice of the fact that “high capacity” and “assault weapons” are in quotes. Why? It’s because they are made up terms used to scare people and shame gun owners into thinking they are criminals. It’s no surprise that Udall uses those terms so freely.
Mark Udall is no friend to those of us that believe in our unconditional right to keep and bear arms, but he is very good friends with anti-gun groups. He will be getting a boost from Americans for Responsible Solutions who will run ads in Colorado supporting Udall’s anti-gun, anti-rights stance. This group was founded by Mark Kelly and Gabriel Giffords, and if you’ll remember, Mark Kelly was given the same amount of time to voice his opinion on Colorado’s new gun laws that all of our sheriffs combined were given. He’s not even a Coloradan but was given a podium to speak against our rights.
Lastly, in March of 2013, Mark Udall voted against Amendment 139, which simply stated: “uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.”
In short, it acted to ensure that the 2nd Amendment Rights of American citizens would not be ceded to the United Nations Arms Treaty (which was a major news item at the time). Voting to cede American gun owners’ 2nd Amendment rights to the despots and tyrants at the United Nations were 10 Democrats from what are generally considered pro-gun swing states.
- Jeanne Shaheen (New Hampshire)
- Mary Landrieu (Louisiana)
- Tim Kaine (Virginia)
- Mark Warner (Virginia)
- Bob Casey (Pennsylvania)
- Sherrod Brown (Ohio)
- Harry Reid (Nevada)
- Claire McCaskill (Missouri)
- Mark Udall (Colorado)
- Michael Benet (Colorado)
Again, the wording is straightforward and non-controversial.
- Ensure that the United States will not negotiate or support treaties that violate Second Amendment rights under the U.S. Constitution.
- Uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations (U.N.) Arms Trade Treaty.
The following month, on April 2nd to be exact, the U.N. General Assembly “adopted by majority vote an Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) with the objective of regulating the international trade in conventional arms – from small arms to major military equipment.”
