Why prohibit funding it for only ONE year? This should be a permanent ban because the UN Arms Trade Treaty VIOLATES our nation's sovereign rights and our Constitution's 2nd Amendment.

Obama signed this treaty against the will of Congress. The House blocked it's implementation with this vote. Try to keep up.

Which is a damn good thing. The UN thinks it can interfere with a sovereign nation's constitution & that arrogant POS Obama thinks he can trick congress & the American people.

Oh, lets not forget he sent his b**ch Hillary to the UN to plead his case.

Oh so close. You are almost right.

What congress did was not to fund for one year the ability for anyone to work on the treaty. Since congress holds the purse, then they can block funding to bring the treaty to furition. If there is no money to work on the treaty, then no work is done on the treaty.
