If you look at the list of the Senators that voted for the resolution you will see a commonality with all but one, the "D". That dose not mean that the "R's" are all okay, (One of my Senators, Comrade McCain is a prime example of this) just means that all the "D's" have to go.

This concerns ex-combatants only, people returning from military duty and retaining their arms and other war material. The U.S. already does this with our military. Frankly I don’t see the need for returning soldiers to keep their RPGs (for squirrel hunting?).
This ranks right up there with the hoax “You must list your guns on your 2010 tax return”.
I am a gun advocate and believe in the 2nd amendment. However passing this kind of propaganda around without researching it shows just how easily led we are. Please don’t take some hysterical maniacs word for something, check it out yourself. It’s no wonder the left considers us wild eyed gun toting physcopaths.
I strangely find myself not caring what the Progressives think of me. Frankly, I LIKE the idea of them thinking I am a wild eyed nut job. It might make them think twice about kicking down my door to take my weapons, or at least surviving the encounter with the same number of holes as they started with.
I don't really care what the exact wording of the small arms treaty is, at this point I am not willing to accept anything at all from the farce that is the UN. Further, the BATF has proven time and time again that they are willing to "interpret" any legislation into pretzels to justify their existence.
Finally I DO see a reason for returning US Troops and US Citizens to be able to buy, keep and bare any type of small arm that they wish, even RPGs. That reason is to make dang sure that the Federal Government fears ME more than I fear them. So far that isn't working out too well for us the Citizens not fearing Government is it?
