Nothing defines members of congress more accurately than how they vote on key issues. Far more often than not, you’ll find Tom Udall’s votes on the “wrong” side of important bills! Reference supporting article links below.
What This Bill Does:
This bill was to prohibit the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Control Treaty. The United Nations has a long history of trying to force countries to take guns from their citizens for any reason. Many of the world’s countries have strict gun control laws and they are some of the most repressive regimes on the planet.
What Vote Aids Middle America: “Yes”
U.S. citizens, like it or not, have a Constitutional right to have arms for any reason. The government of the United States cannot infringe on that right and the United Nations certainly can’t. How is the United Nations going to enforce the treaty when citizens of the U.S. openly defy the treaty? Are they going to come into the United States, armed, and try to take the weapons? Is the U.S. government going to use the treaty as an excuse to seize guns from law abiding citizens who want to protect themselves?
What Tom Udall Voted: “No”
Tom Udall, consistent to his past votes, refused to vote for this bill that would prohibit the U.S. from entering into a United Nations Arms Control Treaty. He has a long history of favoring the United Nations and using it to leverage his own personal ideology onto a world stage instead of just a local one.
