FYI: International aspects of domestic gun control in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee
What part do you think the NRA plays in the following; here's the bill's header and text as it appears in THOMAS.
The bill's number is S. 2205 and it was introduced by Senator Jerry Moran in the 112th Congress:
Americans should ask sponsor of the bill, Sen. Jerry Moran, R, KS, if "transfer" in the legislation copied above could possibly include, directly or otherwise, transfer to the world's trouble spots, such as Libya, or across the U.S.'s southern border, where it is possible (as the Bush administration so clearly demonstrated) that AMERICAN TROOPS CAN BE COMMITTED, because of violence from armed cohorts, to kill or die for however the "interests" of the USA are currently politically defined, by lobbyists from the NRA, who may be contributing to Moran's AND OTHER SENATORS' campaigns.
You can search for activity on this legislation by it's number, S. 2205, and the Congress in which it was introduced, the 112th, by going here: http://thomas.loc.gov/home/multicongress/multicongress.html
Please read this legislation, as it is interesting to see Secretary Clinton's name mentioned in the findings relative to the UN treaties that the NRA is worried about, especially given recent events surrounding her transition out of her current position. If the NRA's concerns are purely domestic, why are they trying to prevent the Senate from acting on a treaty with the United Nations that controls the flow of American guns into other countries? Especially since such foreign situations have a way of involving American troops as the policemen of the whole world.
