Letter: Sen. Shaheen on Guns

To the Editor:

You may or may not be aware of U.N. Resolution 2117. It is a highly restrictive anti-gun measure that would compel members of the U.N. to support a global ban on the importation and exportation of small arms. It would also implement an international gun registry. Not surprisingly, our president lobbied heavily to adopt it. The U.S. Senate recently voted on that resolution, and defeated it by a vote of 53-46. Now get this: Among the senators voting for the adoption of the U.N. resolution was one of our distinguished senators, Jeanne Shaheen. This is the same Jeanne Shaheen who voted for Obamacare and told you that if you liked your current insurance coverage you could keep it. Please remember this in November when she is up for re-election to the U.S. Senate.
