Dear Senator Baucus;
I'm sure you have received many e-mails of thanks for voting against the President's strong arm push, at the cost of millions of taxpayer dollars, to enact more stringent gun control - which would indeed infringe upon the right of American citizens "to keep and bear arms."
I too would like to thank you for standing up against the pressure I'm sure that was put on you, as a Democrat elected to the U.S. Senate, to run with the pack of other Democratic senators which were attacking the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.
What I cannot understand is, if you truly believe in our rights to own and find comfort in the lawful use of a wide range of firearms, how could you stand behind President Obama's support of the United Nation's Small Arms Treaty?
You were one of 46 U.S. Senators to support the President's equally strong push for the U.S. to agree to the harsh restrictions on the private ownership of firearms as laid out in that extremely agenda driven treaty. Firearm owners across the country, and especially here in Montana, now view you and the other 45 senators who were ready to hand over our Constitutional Rights to the U.N. as little more than traitors.
Fortunately, 56 senators had the common sense to reject participating in the treaty.
The President's equally agenda driven desire for the U.S. to cave in to the demands of the U.N. does better explain why the Department of Homeland Security has been stockpiling all of that ammunition (1.6 BILLION rounds to be more precise), and that agency's acquisition of a non-disclosed number of armored personnel carriers. Were you aware that at the height of the war in Iraq, U.S. troops were expending about 6-million rounds of ammunition EACH and EVERY month? Even at that rate, DHS is now sitting on top of enough munitions to wage war with American citizens for more than 20 years.
The manner in which you voted in favor of the U.S. signing the U.N. Small Arms Treaty, then to turn around and vote against Obama's (and Biden's) attack on gun owners' Constitutional rights sends more than mixed signals to the Montana residents you are supposed to represent. It tells them that you cannot be trusted...or believed.
Real Americans are ready and willing to take this country back, if not at the election polls then by force, as rightfully guaranteed by the Second Amendment.
On which side will you stand...with the American people, or with the tyrants who are working so hard to destroy this country?
