Recently, the U.S. Senate voted on United Nations Resolution 2117 dealing with firearms control. In part, the U.N. Resolution "calls for member states to support weapons collection" -- disarmament. The resolution failed in the Senate.

However, Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin voted for U.N. Resolution 2117 that allows the constitutional individual right of American citizens to personally defend themselves to be compromised by entering into a United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. He writes and says that he supports the Second Amendment, but there needs to be "reasonable gun controls." Sen. Durbin voted to make our individual right of self-defense under the Constitution subject to a provision of a treaty with foreign nations.

Every voter in Illinois needs to vote for his or her individual right of self-defense under the U.S. Constitution and against Sen. Durbin in the 2014 election.
