    Default Senate votes 53-46 to prohibit signing UN ATT...

    As you can see, the vote was basically across party lines.

    In the last batch of amendment votes to the budget, the Senate voted on several foreign policy proposals.

    Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) introduced an amendment that would prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty in order to uphold the Second Amendment. His amendment passed on a 53-46 vote.

    Republicans have been critical of President Obama’s decision to consider the treaty, although Obama has said he would not vote for anything that would violate the Second Amendment.

    The fact that it was so close scares the hell out of me. Do we have no Democrats with common sense?

    I am particularly annoyed by the fact that they tried to put this through as an ammendment to the budget. But I think the administration knows it wouldn't make it on its own merits. Or actually lack of merits. New York's senators, Schumer and Gillibrand, naturally voted in favor of it. They have both heard from me on the subject, and I'm sure I will recieve the usual "sportsman's friend" letter from Schumers office. Gillibrand's office doesn't reply.

    That's been my experience with those two yo-yos.
